FTC Group of Companies formally topped off its iconic project Aeon Towers on Tuesday, February 28, at the 33rd floor of what is touted to be Mindanao’s tallest building.
FTC Group of Companies president and CEO Ian Y. Cruz chair led the simple ceremonies along with Francisco Cruz, Board of Director Nancy Cruz, and I.A. Campbell and Associates Inc. Ian Campbell.
The affair was highlighted with the ceremonial hoisting of the bucket and then the pouring of the concrete at the building’s summit.
In building construction, topping off is a builders’ rite traditionally held when the last beam (or its equivalent) is placed atop a structure during its construction.
The imposing Aeon Towers is now 70 percent complete and is being eyed to be completed by December this year or January next year.
Cruz said in an interview that the team is targeting to turn over the units in December this year. He added that Aeon Towers’ condo units are almost sold out.
Aeon Towers is a mix-use high-rise development of F.T.C Group of Companies with a total project cost of P3.1 Billion. Aeon Towers will also house world-class amenities and it’s strategically located at the Central Business District (CBD) of Davao City.
With a total land area of 4,574 square meters, Aeon Towers will house 473 units parking slots of 300 and commercial spaces will be located in the ground floor to 5th floor. The seventh floor to 10th floor will be allocated for the hotel component while the sky deck is at the 33rd floor.
Campbell said the building boasts of earthquake resistant features.
