I received an e-mail a couple of days ago from a real estate professional exhorting me–and probably a dozen other people–to check out Arya Residences by ArthaLand. Since I’m always ready to sneer, I was just about to do so until I came upon this portion of the e-mail:
Setting a new standard at the prestigious Bonifacio Global City, Arya Residences gives its future residents the chance to Live Well, enjoying the comforts of gracious living, and to Live Right, leading a greener, healthier and more cost efficient lifestyle.We are the first environmentally sustainable high rise residential in the Philippines registered with the USGBC’S LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program with a certification goal of Gold.
Okay, now I’m impressed. That’s Gold, people. They must have really pulled out all the stops on this one. Completely unrelated: The same day I received the e-mail, I came across a full-page ad for Arya Residences in the newspaper. A sign that I should invest in a unit? Nah, probably just a reminder for me to check it out myself and learn more about how they made it green.
