Beachside retreat in Pampanga

Century Properties kicks off Resort Residences’ third tower at Azure North

The San Fernando, Pampanga skyline has changed with the completion of the Bali and Monaco towers at the city’s newest landmark—The Resort Residences at Azure North, Century Properties’ first mid-rise development North of Metro Manila.

In a sprawling eight-hectare property, the completed two towers have a total of 1,606 units spread out over each of the two towers’ 29 floors. Its third, the 27-storey Barbados Tower, was launched recently. It will add another 820 units to the development. Barbados is set to be completed in 2025. 

Azure North is just an hour and a half drive from Metro Manila and some minutes away from other key Pampanga commercial and residential areas such as Clark, Subic, and more, with its location right where the North Luzon Expressway and J. Abad Santos Avenue intersect.

Drawing inspiration from Azure Paranaque City

With the completion of the first phase of the amenity area, residents will soon be able to enjoy the concept of a tropical oasis,  drawing inspiration from the Azure Urban Resort Residences in Parañaque City.

The white sand that surrounds the wave pool brings the beachside experience right outside the residents’ doors. In addition to the wave pool, the completion of the first phase of the amenity also includes the clubhouse. With a roof deck, bar, and fully equipped gym, the clubhouse is set as an area where residents can socialize and lounge and is appointed with furnishings that reflect the vibe of a tropical vacation destination. 

Central Luzon, a logistics, lifestyle hub in the offing

One of Central Luzon’s largest and most populous cities, San Fernando is a bastion of arts and culture. With its decades-long tradition of lantern-making, the city is dubbed the Christmas Capital of the Philippines. But interspersed between streets steeped in tradition are new opportunities cropping up. BPOs and IT firms are slowly filling the city, providing jobs and new opportunities. It is also close to the Clark International Airport. For those who want an escape from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila but still long to be in an urban setting, San Fernando is the perfect compromise.

With the government’s push towards decentralization and decongestion of the overcrowded NCR, Pampanga looks to be one of the emerging centers of economic activity. 

“We want this project to be our contribution to Pampanga’s real estate landscape and be another attraction for people to come to the province,” said Century Properties Group Inc. (CPGI) President Jose Marco R. Antonio.

“As the government pushes for decentralization of economic growth, Century Properties hopes that Azure North serves as a catalyst for people to start moving up North which in turn will help the government achieve their goals.”

ADVERTISEMENTCentral Luzon is being eyed by the Department of Trade and industry as a new logistics hub due to its proximity to many upcoming and under-construction infrastructure works. 

The construction of facilities such as the Central Luzon Link Expressway, the Manila-Clark Railway, and Skyway 3 and the improvement of already existing facilities such as the Clark International Airport are breathing fresh air into the province.
