The Green Pinnacle Hotel
Do you remember the Central Park Hotel I posted here about a year ago? This is how the hotel looks like right now.
It is almost done, there are few activities we can see outside the construction but right now, work is more on the interior of the hotel. One more thing, this hotel is officially called “The Pinnacle Hotel”. Hmm…. Actually, the name is totally awesome for me, I love it!
By the way, this is actually the first ever environment friendly highrise building in Mindanao, cool right? Just read on to this article.
‘Green’ hotel to rise in Davao
DUBBED to be the first high-rise structure in Mindanao which has implemented environmentally-sound structure design and interiors, a “green” hotel is soon to rise in Davao City.
Named as Pinnacle Place, the 12-storey structure on Sta. Ana Avenue was designed in such manner that it utilizes natural light and allows cross ventilation on each floor.
“Going green is cheaper in the long run, it is very practical, and you have less impact on the environment,” Arnold Tence, the upcoming general manager of Pinnacle Place, told Sun.Star Davao.
The hotel, which has yet to announce an opening date, will be using a LED (light emitting diode) lighting system, energy efficient air conditioning system, and elevators that require less energy than most being used.
“The hotel will be an actual application of what a sustainable facility is supposed to be,” Tence said.
Also, the hotel will be utilizing locally sourced products, from the construction materials and the furnishings to be used, as part of its commitment to have a smaller carbon footprint.
The hotel will house 200 suites, eight function areas, two restaurants, a fitness center with pool, and a spa.
Pinnacle Place is part of the Central Parq Group of Hotels and was designed by Architect Mark Maximo Chan while interiors were made by Don Cabaog and his team Design Lab.
