Buyers have different criteria when choosing a new home. For young parents like Kayo and Nica Cosio, being a part of a cohesive community is also vital. This is one of the reasons why they love living at Accolade Place, where healthy community relations among its residents is encouraged.
“Here, we have friends who are young parents like us. We help each other out,” mentioned Nica, a full-time Mom who quit her demanding office job as graphics artist to focus on their three young girls. “The place is not so big so it is easy to get to know your neighbors,” she shared.
A project of renowned property developer DMCI Homes, Accolade Place in Quezon City is a low-density modern residence with only130 units in its entire building. It was envisioned as the perfect first home for newly-married couples or young families. It is also targeted to empty nesters that require a low-maintenance dwelling and upwardly-mobile professionals looking for a tangible affirmation of their achievements.
Kayo and Nica are both pleased that their three daughters, namely Summer, Emma and Jo benefit a lot from constant social interaction with the neighborhood kids. “Living here is a lot of fun especially for Summer and Emma,” says Nica. “They get to meet with other kids every afternoon after nap time.”
Child experts harp on the benefits of kid’s play for their emotional, physical and mental development. For children who are too young to attend formal schooling, the community plays a major role in enhancing these developments.
“The Accolade Place community provides our kids a place to imbibe appropriate social behavior such as making friends, waiting for their turns, or how to get along with others,” Kayo explains.
He adds that academic achievements become inconsequential if a young person does not acquire critical social skills needed in forming normal interpersonal relationships when he becomes an adult.
DMCI Homes is perhaps one of the few, if not the only, property developer that puts real emphasis on community development. Each community has their own set of activities that encourages residents’ participation such as sports fest, essay writing and annual Christmas tree lighting. This summer, Nica shared her passion for her craft through an arts and crafts workshop held at Accolade Place.
In 2011, DMCI Homes launched communities.dmcihomes.com, which is the online lifestyle portal of its communities and residents. Its purpose includes fostering harmonious community relations and serving as a communication platform between DMCI Homes and its residents. Incidentally, the site was designed by Kayo, chief marketing strategist and owner of Honeycomb Communities.
The amenities, landscaping and overall planning of Accolade Place were designed to enhance interaction and congenial relations among neighbors. The pool, multipurpose function hall and lanai are all venues for social activities. Like other DMCI Homes mid rise developments, it was designed to maintain a 60:40 footprint-to-building space ratio so there are plenty of open spaces for children to run around.
DMCI Homes, the country’s premier property developer, continues to enrich the quality of life of urban families by offering finely-crafted, themed developments located in close proximity to central business districts, commercial and industrial areas. Accolade Place is strategically located within vicinity of schools, churches, popular malls, offices and other places of interest.
