Diamond Heights - LOCATION
The Diamond stands for a timeless and yet equally modern and elegant emblem, much in the same way that our unique project stands for. The Diamond Heights is a rare-find, an exclusive gated subdivision made for an intimate neighborhood. Only five minutes away from the Davao Airport, this project offering will rise on a fast-developing area, fit for Davao’s up and coming, prestigious community.
Davao City is the largest city in the country in terms of land area. A highly-urbanized city, it is the main trade center in the whole island of Mindanao with agriculture being its main and largest economic sector. It is dubbed as the “Durian Capital of the Philippines” and as one of the safest cities in the world.
The Diamond Heights is a development project that can be found in Downtown Davao, specifically in Brgy. Communal, Buhangin, Davao City.
