“Nag – angot jay kanal. Ada pay babuyan kaaruba mi.” (The water canal stinks and our neighbor has a piggery. “Masang – sang – ab mi inaldaw jay angot na.” (We smell and inhale the stink every day.)
We might think this complaint is from the estero where squatters are but no it comes from a lawyer resident of a middle – class area in Baguio City. This is why Goshen Land is working towards masterplanned communities in all its developments. This means there’s no stinky piggery within the community. In fact for every masterplanned community Goshen Land builds, a sewage treatment plan (STP) is installed by the developer. A masterplanned community as defined by builders is an almost complete community that provides the residential commercial and recreational facilities and services needed for its residents. Great benefits could be found in a masterplanned community. Basic necessities are present within the community such as convenient stores, bakery, laundry shop, water refilling stations and the like. There is no need to endure the hassle of traffic to shop for basic needs. This saves time and transportation expense. At Goshen Land masterplanned communities, they provide amenities such as fitness gyms, swimming pools, clubhouses, and other sports facilities that can be used by residents for their weekend activities with their family and friends.
A masterplanned community also provides private security for its residents. A fence around the whole community are patrolled to ensure the residents are safe. With these privileges of living in Goshen Land masterplanned communities, they turn out to be the best places to raise kids and grow families.
At The Courtyards, a masterplanned community developed by Goshen Land in Baguio, one could see families enjoying the perks of living in a masterplanned community. Their kids enjoy playing in its gardens, open spaces, and can take a nap and relax at The Courtyards Pavilion without worrying about the security. In a masterplanned community there is more open space compared to unplanned communities where house are built anywhere and sometimes even the parks are being sold for housing. At Goshen Land masterplanned communities, lots have certain sizes and houses have maximum sizes as well as every house has its own road access. Zoning and waste management come with the masterplanning such that North Cambridge and The Courtyards, both Goshen Land masterplanned communities have their own sewage treatment plants. And definitely, no stinking piggery within the community.
In a Goshen Land masterplanned community, a Project Management Team takes care of the monthly maintenance of the parks, open spaces, common areas and facilities in the community. When you own a house or a condominium in a Goshen Land masterplanned community, the value of your property increases. This means great return on investment for those who plan to eventually sell their property or those who want to invest in a Goshen Land property. Properties appreciate in value in Goshen Land communities because of the amenities built around the area and a Property Management Team maintains it. *** Harriet Dale M. Sagorsor, JD
