Seriously Crushing: BLOQ Residences and Divine Maitland-Smith

‘Even a constant traveler needs a home base.’ As a travel blogger in her mid-20s, I can attest to that.

No one wants to grow old living under their parents’ roofs. And yet this may be the reality most of us are facing now. It’s not impossible to have your own ‘home base’ though. The millennial’s disposable income are expanding, new careers and opportunities are launched in Cebu.

RFK Holdings Inc., understands the growing needs and lifestyle of the millennial generation. Last 2013, they announced their first development in Talamban–BLOQ Residences aimed for the Cebu young professionals. Their branding and strategy was fresh, and offered their units at a very affordable price and convenient location, their units got sold out like pancakes in just a few months. BLOQ Talamban will be ready for turnover on the first quarter of 2016.

On a recent press con at their showroom in Panagdait, Mabolo, last September 22, 2015, BLOQ Residences announced 400 more units in three convenient locations around Metro Cebu: Banawa, Sikatuna and Plaridel branch. All locations are close to Cebu’s urban areas, safe, livable and with easy means of public transport. All developments will be ready for delivery by 2017.

The press con was graced by BLOQ founder Fiona King and BLOQ’s newest brand ambassador, Divine Maitland-Smith. Fiona King said that BLOQ prices are designed to be affordable for every working Cebuano. Their studio unit prices starts at Php 980,000, while our loft unit prices start at Php 1,400,000.

The 24-monthly equity starts at Php5,000 a month for studio units and Php10,000 a month for loft units. You can also get financing through banks and PAG-IBIG, which will cost around Php 7,000-10,000 a month. Monthly rent fees can cost roughly the same, so why rent when you can own?

All BLOQ units are delivered with a fitted bathroom, kitchen countertop, painted walls, and straight-to-finish concrete floors. BLOQ encourages unit owners to personalize their space to match their own tastes and preferences.

In fact, one of the first questions they ask when you get a unit is the color of the door you prefer for your space! (I would personally love a yellow door!)

Some things can be charming without even trying. I say the same about BLOQ Residences’ quirky pads and their brand ambassador Divine Maitland Smith.

Divine perfectly speaks the voice of the millennial youth–a DJ, tattoo artist and public figure, Divine is always busy and on-the-go. BLOQ perfectly matches her busy lifestyle and at the same time provide a sense of comfort and stability that a home should provide.
