Century Properties to build 3 New "Cities"

User Rating:  / 0

The Residences at Commonwealth by Century PropertiesCentury Properties Group has entered into a memorandum of understanding between Indonesia’s Bakrie Global, and Revolution Pre-crafted Properties Ltd to build 3 mixed-use property developments – A Media City; A Sports City, and; A Technology Corridor.

Signed on April 28, far away from the tumultuous diplomatic spotlight of the 30th ASEAN Meeting, the memorandum of understanding hopes to increase tourism between the two countries and bring about a bright new age for Asian Media and Technology.  It is the hope of the memorandum that other ASEAN countries would later join the venture.

Under the agreement, the three companies will share technology and capital to create:

  • A Media City. This will have at its heart a state of the art multi-media center encased within a residential and commercial living space.
  • A Sports City. This is envisioned to be several modern sports complexes that the general public may use.
  • A Technology Corridor. This is envisioned to become the “Silicon Valley” of Asia. A place where the country – and the region’s – brightest minds can come together to generate and build future tech.

Century Properties Chair and CEO Jose E.B. Antonio had this to say about the memorandum signing: “I am very pleased to have this framework of collaboration with Bakrie Global of Indonesia to develop the Philippines’ first-ever Media City, Sports City, and Technological Corridor. This kind of synergy will help build the Philippines’ competitive edge as a tourism and hospitality destination with modern media and tech capabilities, as well as open a host of opportunities for business and employment.”

Fire Proofing Tips

User Rating:  / 0

Given the investment that we all put into our homes, ensuring that fires never happen is one of our top concerns. Here are a few practical tips that you can use to help fireproof your homes:

1)    If you plan to build your home out of a lot of wood (Doors, your ceiling, interior walls, etc...), consider using a flame retardant to coat all wooden surfaces prior to painting. 

You can purchase Destiny Paint's Flame Shield Fire Retardant
at any of our MC Home Depot Branches

2)    If you like the look of wooden floors, consider using ceramic tiles that look like wood instead of actual wooden ones. Ceramic is more resistant to heat than wood.  

Here are some of JK Tiles Wood-Ceramic tile options
available at MC Home Depot

3)    Invest in a good set of fire extinguishers and make sure they are always charged.

MC Home Depot carries a variey of fire-extinguishers. Here are a few from Guardland.

 4)    Don’t scrimp on the electronics.  Check for the following:

a.     If you insert a plug into a socket and the plug sparks or falls out with little effort, your socket is either really old OR you bought a cheap socket. These sockets can become the source of fire and must to be replaced.

b.    If you have a device whose electrical cord heats up with use – like hairdryers or certain stoves – touch the casing of the socket where it was plugged. If it is also warm, then the socket is made of cheap plastic and is prone to melting or catching fire. Replace these immediately. 

c.     If you turn on your lights and they give off an intense flicker before a dimmer steady glow, your light switch may be “arcing” which is another source of fire.
