    Slater Young Stands Firm on Controversial Real Estate Project in Cebu City

    Civil engineer and content creator Slater Young is defending his company’s controversial real estate project in Cebu City despite facing backlash online. The project, called “The Rise at Monterrazas,” has received disapproval from certain groups concerned about its impact on the environment.

    In response to the criticism, Young took to his Instagram Stories to assure his followers that the project had undergone extensive planning to ensure it was built using best practices and sustainability measures. He revealed that his team had worked on the project for a long time, with dedicated architects, engineers, and sustainability experts involved in the planning process.

    “The Rise at Monterrazas” is being developed by Young’s company, Monterazzas Prime, to cater to the demand for starter homes in Cebu City. The villas are situated at the foot of a mountain and offer a stunning view of the city. However, some netizens expressed concerns about the project’s potential impact on the environment, particularly after Cebu was devastated by Typhoon Odette.

    Young previously claimed that his company took the terrain into consideration to minimize the project’s environmental impact. Despite the overwhelming response to the Monterrazas project, Young assured the public that his team is committed to engaging with expert groups and environmental advocates to address concerns and ensure transparency.

    The project has already obtained an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB), which is required for projects with significant environmental impacts. Young also mentioned that the property includes a drip irrigation system to collect rainwater, promoting sustainability.

    Young emphasized that he shares the public’s concerns and will continue to update the community on the project’s progress. He values transparency and is committed to listening to stakeholders and experts to address any environmental concerns raised.
