The Suites at Gorordo: Setting our Sights on Singapore-Inspired Living

by Ryan Daniel R. Dablo

“Singapore-inspired living is all about living the good life,” says Ann Leslie Ngo, CEO for World Central Properties Inc. (WCPI), in a roundtable talk last June 16, 2022 at City Sports Club Cebu to welcome the rise of The Suites at Gorordo, a majestic 29-story crystalline high-rise tower at the corner of two major thoroughfares, Gorordo Avenue and Archbishop Reyes Avenue in uptown Cebu.

The Suites at Gorordo is developed by World Central Properties Inc., and is set to epitomize upscaled modern-day living at its finest. Reminiscent of New York’s Flatiron building, The Suites at Gorordo boasts of an iconic sculpted design that will dominate the Queen City’s skyline. It will feature both residential units and serviced suites, and with the service managed by The Ascott Limited, a leading hospitality brand in business circles, living at The Suites at Gorordo will be a luxury . The seeks to be an idyllic city home that emphasizes family-centric ideals, with services that provide modern essentials: the innovative list includes babysitting, housekeeping, laundry and dry-cleaning services, business center use, and conference room rental. This is on top of the amenities that patrons can also enjoy such as the residential lobby and lounge, fitness center, swimming pool, and a sky garden with a gazebo and grilling station. Minutes away from Cebu Business Park and replete with panoramic views of Cebu, The Suites at Gorordo caters to the good life whether it be on the fast lane or on an easy, laidback pace.

No wonder then, that the development has already caught the discerning eye of the Philippine Property Awards, bagging four awards in 2021 including Best High Rise Condominium Development and Best Mixed Use Architectural Design in the Philippines. With many developments in Metro Manila offering stiff competition, The Suites at Gorordo won the judges over with its management, sustainability initiatives, dedication to the service industry, and bevy of features. “Don’t take our word for it,” intones Cyndy Tan Jarabata, President of Tajara Hospitality Group and head judge during the 2021 Philippine Property Awards, “go see it for yourself, and see.”  A  WCPI  representative further enthused that the company wanted to make high end living accessible to as many people as possible. This is why The Suites at Gorordo is cheaper by 20-30% compared to other high end condos in Cebu.”

Speaking before an audience of developers, brokers, realtors, and the press, Cyndy Tan Jarabata is optimistic about Cebu’s real estate, and The Suites at Gorordo is primed to be its crowning achievement. With the rest of the panel – Ann Leslie Ngo, WCPI CEO, Sharon G. Ong, WCPI COO, Philip Barnes, Country Manager for Ascott Philippines and Orathai Chirapornchai, Regional Solutions Manager of  Property Guru Philippines – voicing out their agreement, little was left to the imagination as to how truly pioneering this project is. With this pre-eminent Cebuano icon and landmark looking forward to its opening in the early third quarter of 2023, a new age of Singapore-inspired living may yet dawn on the Queen City.
