Despite the worldwide financial crisis, the real estate market in Panama, while it has leveled off from the boom situation of recent years, remains active. Foreign buyers are still arriving in considerable numbers to look for homes and properties.
For homes, there are many developments to choose from. In Panama City, apartments constitute a buyer’s market and there are interesting offers of houses in the Old Quarter and outer city environs. The Pacific beaches area to the west of the city is developing fast. The Azuero Peninsula is getting its share of attention and further west, Bocas del Toro and Chiriquí remain popular for retirees and second home buyers. In Chiriquí, formerly known for its mountain properties, the coastal area around Horconcitos and Boca Chica has entered the limelight.
On the following pages, we offer a resumé of some of the projects.
PH Boutique Quartier del Mar
This is the third of the Quartier Boutiques PH series, situated in the Coco del Mar area of Panama, five minutes from shopping centers, corridors, hospitals, restaurants, etc. Why use the same name for all projects? The motive was to create a brand name associated with cutting edge design in prime locations, with the latest technology, luxury and affordable prices and to establish a high standard of construction and finishings which would always be associated with the brand.
PH Boutique Quartier del Mar has four apartments of 110 and 120 square meters per floor, each with a balcony. All windows have double glazing. Solar panels have been installed to provide electricity for the social areas. The imported European kitchens have hob, extractor-fan, granite and all the details that you can ever dream of.
The social area is 700 m², with ponds, an infinity pool, a fitness room and meeting room.
“Is that not what we all want?” says Mr. Joquín Roca, President of the Quartier Group; “to live in the best residential area of the city, in a modern luxury home, with the latest technology, the best finishes and unbeatable value for money. That’s what we want to identify with the Quartier brand and this is only achieved by great attention to detail.”
