After spending the last two years abroad, Hidilyn Diaz will get to have three more houses when she finally makes her return.
Besides the pledged house and lot in Tagaytay courtesy of Philippine Olympic Committee president Bambol Tolentino, Megaworld has also announced that it will be giving a condominium to the 30-year-old native of Zamboanga for winning the country’s first-ever gold in the Olympics.
Located at the posh Eastwood City, the estimated amount of the unit is at P14-million.
“The epic moment is about 97 years in the making and this is our way of saying thanks to Hidilyn for making us all proud,” said Megaworld’s Chief Strategy Officer Kevin Tan.
“We believe that it’s just right to give our first-ever Olympic gold medalist a home in our first-ever township, Eastwood City, where she can enjoy the township lifestyle with her family and her loved ones.”
Later in the day, Century Properties will also give Diaz a single-attached house and lot in a place of her choosing.
Her choices are Tanza and the newly-launched General Trias in Cavite; Lipa and Nasugbu, Batangas; San Pablo and Calamba, Laguna; Pandi, Bulacan; and in Magalang, Pampanga. Before the year ends, PHirst Park Homes will roll out two more projects in northern Luzon and another one in southern Luzon.
“On behalf of PHirst Park Homes and the entire Century Properties Group, we send our heartfelt thanks and congratulations to Ms. Hidilyn Diaz for bringing home the gold and bringing pride to the Philippines,” said Century Properties Group executive chairman Jose Antonio.
“Hidilyn’s story is every Filipino’s story of struggle and perseverance amidst adversities. She even improvised her own weightlifting equipment out of bamboo sticks and water bottles in order to train with her limited resources. We at PHirst Park Homes celebrate her inspiring story of triumph,” added president Ricky Celis.
“She deserves a PHirst home for winning the Philippines’ first Olympic gold medal.”
So far, Diaz can expect to receive a total of P35.5-million.
P10-million would come from the Republic Act No. 10699, which both the MVP Sports Foundation and the San Miguel Corporation matched.
Mikee Romero of Northport added P3-million, while Zamboanga will give P2.5-million.
