Banking on its well-established expertise in the Philippines, RLC expanded its footprint beyond local shores and embarked on its first international venture with a residential project in Chengdu City, China. Chengdu City, the capital of Sichuan province, is China’s fifth most populous city with over 16 million residents. It is also considered to be one of the country’s wealthiest urban destinations. RLC’s Ban Bian Jie project is strategically situated in the Wuhou District, the largest of the five internal districts of Chengdu. The project’s prime location, next to the Jiang An river and in close proximity to the Yong Kang Forest Park, and its quality features make it an attractive and preferred choice for employees and families, alike.
The Chengdu Ban Bian Jie project is a residential development that covers a total gross floor area of approximately 220,000 square meters. A blend of thoughtfully-designed high-rise residential buildings, townhouses, as well as shop houses, Chengdu Ban Bian Jie caters to the upper-middle class market and its sophisticated lifestyle. The project features an amusement area for kids, and various sports amenities including gym facilities and a swimming pool to satisfy even the most active of its residents. With its close and convenient proximity to the major Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, the sprawling community is complete with entertainment hubs and relaxation spaces, such as the clubhouse, ecological gardens, and a commercial complex to suit one’s every lifestyle and whim.
In mid-2018, RLC successfully launched the first phase of the project’s high-rise residential towers, which achieved revenues of approximately RMB 1.14 billion. The positive response of the market spoke volumes of the level of public confidence in the project’s quality and future value. In 2019, RLC completed substantial construction milestones, keeping the project on track to prepare for handover and sales permit application in time for the launch of Phase 2’s residential tower.
With the encouraging success of its first international venture, Robinsons Land aims to further demonstrate its expertise in building landmark projects and in improving lifestyle experiences both in and beyond the Philippines.
