This Building Pioneers Sustainability As First Premium Green High-Rise In Cebu City
JEG Tower @ One Acacia is proof that modernity and green living can work well together
The green movement begins with us—but it also helps that different fields have been initiating projects that assist in promoting sustainability in our lives. Even in real estate, eco-friendly solutions are being prioritized, not only providing for the needs of mother earth, but also touches on our personal well-being and holistic health.
With this in mind, Cebu-based real estate developer JEG Development Corporation introduces the newest high-rise in the area that further cements this cause. Launching the first premium green and future ready building in Cebu City, JEG Tower @ One Acacia boasts of well-integrated features with sustainability at its core.
The high-rise prides itself in its energy-efficient features, reduced water usage, and efficient waste management. It’s also the first to integrate solar energy in a commercial development, with their partnership with COREnergy for a zero cash-out solar photovoltaic plant, according to Chief Operating Officer Marko Sarmiento.
As green living also involves wellness, the building also boasts of features that cater to this need. With the use of natural daylight, optimal indoor air quality, and the roof deck garden, the developers hope that these elements will provide support for tenants and employees staying in the tower.
What’s more, the roof deck’s endemic flora can also help bolster humidity levels to the 30%–60% range required for human health. Imagine hanging out in a nature-surrounded place—it can certainly improve one’s mood and stress levels instantly!
Their elevators are also made with sustainability in mind. With their Mitsubishi Destination-Oriented Allocation System (DOAS) elevators, each trip ensures strategic and safe movement within the vertical development, with innovative technology designed to utilize less energy consumption.
With all these innovations, the property earned a LEED Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council last year. “With this new development, we want to inspire other developers here in Cebu City to take the first steps in offering green, high-quality, and future-proof spaces that make people feel valued and protected,” Marko says.
It’s another win for sustainability—initiated at the heart of the Queen City Of The South!
