128 Nivel Hills

Crone Partners have 6 residential towers under construction in the Philippines with a further 10 towers in various stages of Design in Makati and Cebu. The towers range from 20 to 55 levels totaling more than 5,000 apartments and over 500,000m2 of office GFA over a 10 year period.

The Arya Residence in Fort Bonifacio Global City is a good example of Crone’s expertise in Green Building design. Arya is the first Green Certified residential building in the Philippines targeting LEED Gold and BERDE Ratings. The Arya Residence has won numerous awards including the 2012 South East Asia Property Awards “Best Residential Development” in the Philippines.

128 Nivell Hills is the latest design to dazzle the Philippine market.

128 Nivell Hills is a high rise residential condominium whose unique aesthetic and modern living features make it a major competitor in the current Cebu market. The project is the first major development for the client Diamond Hiland Inc. giving the new developer strong design credibility in Cebu.

The project is located in the Central Visayas region in Cebu and will consist of 560 apartments, a niche retail component and quality amenities including numerous pools, roof top gardens, a gymnasium and events spaces. The development will cater for the upscale market and reflect the modern lifestyle of its residents and investors.

The concept proposes two towers whose composition gives the impression of shifting elliptical floor plates. This unconventional form is successful in creating a dramatic appearance whilst also maximising 360 degree unobstructed views of the surrounding Cebu landscape and coast.

128 Nivell Hills intends to provide a design benchmark for residential developments on both a local and international scale.
