This is Calyx Residences. Air, light, space, function, beauty – in sync with nature.
Inspired by the outer whorl of green leaves that cradle the flower, Calyx Residences answers the need for residential options that support the environment. Like the perfect spiral chambers of the nautilus, many of the design elements aspire to define a secure and balanced lifestyle for the building residents. Developed by a local group passionate about innovation and the environment, Calyx Residences is a concept influenced by the Cebuano sense of value and quality at the right price.
Designed by architectural firm Aidea Phil., Inc. globally recognized as one of the top 100 in the world and the only one from the country, Calyx Residences will be an iconic structure that will stand out as a landmark. Tina Periquet of Periquet Galicia, Inc. signed on as space planner of the interior spaces to maximize function and aesthetics of each residential condominium unit. Structural design is from renowned Aromin and Sy as it was known then, now called Sy^2 + Associates. These firms represent the best in the industry. Market insights, branding and project conceptualization was spearheaded by Tetta Baad as marketing and sales consultant who had years of experience with the Ayala group. These are just some of the project team members behind Calyx.
Calyx Residences is located in the residential enclave of the Cebu Business Park.
Fenced off from the surrounding roads, this section is just two blocks from the upscale mall, Ayala Center Cebu.
It combines the best of two worlds: quiet and secure in a verdant setting and yet just a short walk from offices, banks, shopping, dining and entertainment services.
This business park is connected to five major city thoroughfares: Gorordo Ave., Juan Luna Street, Archbishop Reyes Ave., General Maxilom Ave. and M. J. Cuenco Ave. These roads provide access to the port, downtown, the airport and other destinations.
