Azure North: Your home in Pampanga's first-ever beach resort

A beach in the heart of Metro Manila was once a dream.

Azure Urban Resort Residences Masterplan

Now it has become a REALITY. Today, residents of Azure in Paranaque City are enjoying the beach resort lifestyle that they can only imagine 3 yrs ago. Investors are also enjoying rental income from both long term and short term tenants who wanted to live somewhere near their workplace but at the same time can experience the white sand in this residential communities' man-made beach, the Azure Beach. For urban professionals who want a balance in their fast-paced career and young families wanting a more relaxed environment for their children, they find refuge here.

This project has given a whole new meaning to the word "staycation" as evidenced by its residents, investors and tenants' posts in social media.

The success of Azure in Manila has inspired its developer, Century Properties to create something special once more.


Inspired by the world-famous El Nido, Palawan, the planned residential towers/town house clusters will evoke the sense of rocky outcrops that spring organically from the water and are topped with lush, verdant greenery.

Rising in the bustling and booming northern city 
of San Fernando Pampanga, right at the western corner 
of North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), flanked by supermalls Robinson's and SM City, AZURE NORTH will be the hottest new masterplanned resort project north of Metro Manila, an hour travel from Quezon City.

A place this inspiring is truly something you deserve.



Each AZURE NORTH residential tower unit will be designed to not only maximize the tropical views and natural daylight of the project but to be an elegant, warm, and welcoming home for its residents.

Alea Residences Bacoor by DMCI

Finally, there is a DMCI project in this side of the Metro. 

Yes, I still consider the location of this project as part of Metro Manila even though technically, it is already in Bacoor - the first city of Cavite coming from Paranaque thru CAVITEX (Manila-Cavite Expressway).

I have known CAVITEX as "Coastal Road" since more than 10 years ago when I used to pass by this expressway every weekday going to college in Manila. Coastal road is memorable to me as I remember the joy of travelling in a wide road with landscaped plants and trees in its median strip and the Manila Bay sunset on my right when going home to my grandma's place in Imus. These daily romance with Coastal Road planted that desire in me to drive my own car someday. I always imagined myself enjoying driving here.

Southbound lane of Cavitex

Fast forward 5 years after graduating from college, I was able to fulfill that dream and as I expected, the feeling of driving in Coastal Road was bliss.

Okay enough of nostalgia! Back to Alea Residences, I think this will be the nearest prime condo project at Bacoor Exit of CAVITEX or Coastal Road as I call it but anyway, most people now, especially those who are new in Cavite, call it CAVITEX.

Imagine you are working in a business-process outsourcing (BPO) company within the Mall of Asia area or you're a manager in Solaire, City of Dreams or the upcoming Tiger Resort to be named as Manila Bay Resorts - you only have to travel less than 9 kilometers or equivalent to 15 minutes without traffic. Let's say its rush hour and you double your travel time to 30 minutes, that is still tolerable right?

You could be working in NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport), the luxurious hotels within Resorts World area or Roxas Boulevard and Alea Residences is still considerably near.

A lot is going on in the Pasay-Paranaque Area, not to mention  property giant Ayala Land's planned 9-hectare complex for a business-process outsourcing (BPO) hub, a hotel and probably Ayala's biggest mall that is estimated to create at least 10,000 new jobs for Filipinos, there is no doubt that there is a huge opportunity for residential property investors here.
