GA Sky Suites foreclosed by RCBC

Update as of May 29, 2014 : DoubleDragon is planning to take over and finish the construction of the GA Sky Suites, according to a report from the Philippine Daily Inquirer: DoubleDragon eyes Delfin Lee property in QC

Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) has foreclosed the entire Globe Asiatique (GA) Sky Suites condominium, according to a notice to the public that recently appeared in several major newspapers. The GA Sky Suites condominium is located at the corner of EDSA and Quezon Avenue in Quezon City.

In the public notice, RCBC announced that they acquired the property through a “public auction arising from RCBC’s extrajudicial foreclosure of the pertinent mortgages” that included the GA Sky Suites, among a number of properties.

It was easy to foresee that Globe Asiatique would face difficulties arising from their controversial Xevera housing project in Pampanga, portions of which were also foreclosed by RCBC.

But who would have thought it was already so bad that it would come to a point where other projects like the GA Sky Suites had to be foreclosed by their creditor, which is RCBC in this case?!

I can’t help but wonder if Globe Asiatique could have prevented the foreclosure of the GA Sky Suites had their initial public offering pushed through, that is assuming people would still buy shares inspite of the allegedly anomalous Xevera housing project.

According to an article in Manila Standard, RCBC had lent a total of Php2.8 Billion to Globe Asiatique. Coincidentally, Globe Asiatique’s IPO could have raised Php3.3 Billion, but was postponed last September. Could the money they could have raised been used to bail them out? I guess we’ll never know.

What happens to existing buyers of GA Sky Suites?

The GA Sky Suites is not yet ready for turn over to buyers and unit owners, and it seems construction has stopped at the moment. So what happens to the buyers and unit owners and the condominium units they have purchased that are not yet finished?

According to the public notice, “RCBC would like to assure the existing buyers that it will be communicating with them directly to address their concerns”.

Based on what I read in GA Sky Suites forum posts in skyscrapercity.com and pinoyexchange.com, RCBC appears to be doing just that, and they are informing buyers that they are taking over from Globe Asiatique.

Furthermore, latest updates about GA Sky Suites in the same forum in skyscrapercity.com also mentioned that RCBC will continue with the project and construction will resume by the first quarter of 2011.  I just hope that this is true and all goes according to schedule, for the sake of the buyers and unit owners.

  5. Hi,

    I bought a unit from this GA Sky suite, paid the 20% if the total cost (P4.6M) of the unit. We recived a letter from RCBC stating a refund (but the period of refund is from Oct 2010 to Feb 2011). The payment that was received from Jan 2010 to Sept 2010 has no clarification yet. Is there anyone who can help the buyer please?

    • Hi Vynes, I’m just glad RCBC is giving a refund. I’m not sure who you should contact, but I can give you the contact numbers of the people from RCBC Acquired Assets Group as follows:

  6. hi po sir jay… gusto ko lang po itanong kung ano na mangyayari sa commission ng ahente  ng GA SKY SUITE ngayong foreclosure na pala? may pag asa pa po ba itong makuha? hindi po ba dapat maibigay na ng GA ang buong commission ng mga ahente?

  7. hi jay.. gusto ko lang po malaman kung pano na makukuha ng mga agent ng GA Sky Suite yung commisssion nila ngayon na foreclosure na pala yun? may pag asa pa po ba na makuha pa nila yung ibang commission? at posible po ba na maibigay nila yun commission ng buo na?

    Salamat po =)

    God bless!

  8. Hi Jay

    Ako po ay isang OFW dito sa Abu Dhabi, UAE. Gusto ko lang po sanang idulog sa inyo ang aking problema tungkol sa binibili kong house and lot (RFO- ready for Occupancy) sa St. Monique Valais sa Pantok, Binangonan, Rizal under sa Globe Asiatique/FILMAL under IN-HOUSE FINANCING.

    As of now (14 January 2011), ay hindi pa rin nila nai-tu-turn over sa akin ang bahay, kahit na nakabayad na ako ng P260T downpayment plus 2 months monthly amortization for the months of December 2010 & January2011 (e.g.P29T + P29T), as agreed. Puro pangako lang po sila.

    Gusto ko lang po sanang malaman ang mga legal options na available para sa aking problema. Puwede ko po bang bawiin nalang ang lahat ng pera na aking naibayad na sa kanila, since hindi naman nila natupad ang aming kasunduan na after paying P260T downpayment ay makakalipat na kami sa bahay sa St. Monique Valais?

    Nangangamba rin po ako sa napanood ko sa TFC (Channel 2) dito sa Dubai ang tungkol sa kaso ni Mr. Delfin Lee, president ng Globe Asiatique/FILMAL Corporation (COURT CASE VS DELFIN LEE & FILMAL/GLOBE ASIATIQUE VS PAGIBIG). Related po ba ito sa mga problemang aking ngayon nararanasan sa kanila?

    So, what will happen po sa existing buyers ng units sa Saint MOnique Valais?

  10. Hmmmmmm… is this a foretaste of or a prelude to the “bubble burst” that Trace has prophesied about? Interesting. Let’s keep our ears and eyes open.

    • Hi Ms. Lynn, I hope not! I believe this was caused by the mess that happened between Globe Asiatique and Pag-ibig and is an isolated incident.

      Without that mess, they would most probably be still doing okay.

      I also believe the IPO would have pushed through without that mess, and they would have been able to settle their obligations.
