Q&A with Alfred S. Xerez-Burgos III
Alfred S. Xerez-Burgos III is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Landco Pacific Corporation, a developer of leisure and luxury home communities as well as resort-inspired condominiums all over the Philippines.
It’s flagship development, Peninsula de Punta Fuego in Nasugbu, Batangas, is the country’s first private and exclusive seaside residential resort. This along with other resorts developed the last two decades, paved the way for the resort-inspired condominium TRIbeca Private Residences located along the highly accessible South Luzon Expressway in Sucat, Muntinlupa.
What was the inspiration behind TRIbeca?
There’s philosophy and theme, as it translates to substance and form.
The philosophy behind every Landcoproject is to promote our brand promise – Life at Your Leisure. That means every since project of Landco is devoted to promote a lifestyle that encourages moments of leisure. We make sure to provide wide, active, open spaces that enhance appreciation for nature and enjoying time alone or with loved ones. We believe that moments like these form part of our precious memories that money can’t buy. By advocating this philosophy for more than 20 years, Lando continues to reshape and revolutionize the way people live.
The theme we chose was an upscale, upbeat and young metropolitan theme inspired in a way by the urban developments in New York. TRIbeca to us means three towers to a cluster. We even have a central park around which all the clusters form a surrounding community.
Why would Filipinos in the Bay Area be interested inTRIbeca?
Many of our buyers from the United States invest in TRIbeca, first and foremost, because they are looking toward retiring in the Philippines. As a retirement community, TRIbeca is advantageous because of the large space that we’ve incorporated for recreation. When in TRIbeca, you’ll never feel caged in your unit because of your very big back yard. I don’t know how many condominium developments can boast of having your own football field, resort pools, jogging path, barbeque pits and so much more. For the same reasons, TRIbeca is also advantageous for those who are still active in the United States, and would like to visit the Philippines from time-to-time. We have a rental pool wherein one may enroll their unit if they’re not using it for the meantime.
What are the advantages and benefits of owning in TRIbeca?
Landco is the purveyor of leisure living in the country. Along with our partners ATR KIMENG Land, we have chosen the largest tract of land along the South Luzon Expressway corridor just to be able to execute our concept. No other development can approximate this size. And because of this, we are able to provide 60% of our 10-hectate project to open spaces.
The other factor is that an owner of a TRIbeca unit, subject to prevailing rules and restrictions, is granted membership in our LandcoPrivilege Club. The card entitles members to access some of our leisure projects in the country, such as Club Punta Fuego at Peninsula de Punta Fuego and Terrazas de Punta Fuego in Nasugbu, Batangas; Playa Calatagan in Calatagan, Batangas; and Playa Azalea in Samal Island.
Message to Filipinos in the Bay Area on Labor Day:
