MANILA, Philippines – P.A. Alvarez Properties and Development Corporation (P.A. Properties), together with Hankyu Realty Co., Ltd., have broken ground on the 11-hectare project in Dasmariñas, Cavite on Saturday, December 9.

Gracing the groundbreaking ceremony were Dasmariñas Mayor Elpidio Barzaga Jr, and Pag-IBIG Fund Vice President Elmer Gabriel Tugade. Together with P.A. Properties Chairman Romarico “Bing” T. Alvarez and President Jonathan G. Lu, and Hankyu Realty’s Deputy General Manager Toda Masahiko, along with both companies’ officials, they led the capsule laying for the Idesia project.

P.A. Properties from Laguna and Osaka, Japan-based Hankyu Realty signed the joint venture agreement (JVA) in June this year. P.A.
