INSPIRED by New York’s iconic Flatiron Building, The Suites at Gorordo (T-SAG), a gleaming crystal tower, is rising above the city and is set to become one of Cebu’s most iconic landmarks.

Located in Gorordo Avenue corner Archbishop Reyes Avenue, The Suites at Gorordo will definitely stand out with its unique crystalline design—a feature that took a couple of brilliant minds to create.

Envisioned to bring Singapore-inspired living to Cebu, this new iconic skyscraper developed by homegrown builder Worldwide Central Properties Inc. (WCPI) in partnership with global hospitality brand Ascott Limited offers a great combination of strategic location, world class design, global hospitality services, and luxury that’s within reach.

This partnership between WCPI and Singapore-based Ascott, a global leader in lodging business, will surely bring topnotch service to the Cebu’s dynamic and ever-growing hospitality industry.

Shaped like a crystal trophy rising at the corner of two major converging roads in Cebu City, T-SAG creates an iconic representation of a successful, forward-looking city. Truly, Cebu is booming and looking to the great prospects in the future.

Ann Leslie Ngo, chief executive officer of WCPI, boasts this development as something that Cebuanos can truly be proud of because of its “unique and iconic” design which embodies Cebu’s “dynamism and progress.”

Chief operating officer Sharon Anne Ong agrees, saying that aside from bringing a world-class development to Cebu, it’s also high time to raise the bar of city living in Cebu—exactly what the multi-awarded T-SAG aims to realize.

“We’re bringing something new to Cebu. It’s really high time to raise the bar of living in Cebu. The Suites is truly a great addition to Cebu, which we know is really a big place for hospitality,” Ong shares.

Despite its inspiration from foreign influence, Ngo says they made sure that The Suites will highlight Cebu’s identity by incorporating “Cebuano touches” into the development by using locally-made furniture and other materials.

Ascott Philippines country general manager Philip Barnes says they really want the Cebuanos and foreigners alike to experience the Singapore-inspired living through this project, which will bring Ascott’s first Somerset-branded property outside of Manila.

“The Suites at Gorordo is a multi-awarded property,” he says, citing the four awards it bagged at the 9th Philippine Property Awards in 2021, namely: Best High Rise Condominium Development in the Philippines; Best Mixed Use Architectural Design in the Philippines; Best High End Condo Development in Metro Cebu; and highly commended Best Mixed Use Architectural Development in the Philippines.

Ascott is the world’s largest international serviced residence owner-operator with over 21,000 operating serviced residence units in key cities of Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Gulf region. According to Barnes, the multi-awarded Singapore-based firm is now the dominant player in the world of lodging and also in the Philippines in terms of serviced residences.

During the World Travel Awards 2021, Ascott was hailed as the World’s Leading Serviced Apartment Brand and Best Serviced Apartment Company during the Business Traveller UK Awards 2021. Its professional experience in serviced residences is the key to elevating customer experience at The Suites at Gorordo.

Luxury living in great location

T-SAG is just steps away from Cebu Business Park and Ayala Center Cebu, offering easy access to essential day to day needs. It has 31 floors, 157 serviced suites, and 198 residential suites. Company officials say the whole development is expected to be completed by the third quarter of next year.

The residential suites cater to individuals and families with discerning tastes, setting the standard for luxury high-rise living while offering the same warmth of a traditional home. The serviced suites will be the first of their kind to be managed by Ascott’s Somerset Serviced Residences, a global brand of niche hospitality: all these bring together a sense of exclusivity and first-class service. The Suites at Gorordo is a perfect addition to Cebu’s existing environment.

Designed to give the luxurious life, The Suites at Gorordo’s amenities provide a sense of comfort and convenience that will help its residents unwind after a long day, or stay active in style.
