Paris Hilton is to open her first real estate project in the Philippines this week.

The socialite, who has 45 stores around the world which sell her handbags, fragrances and shoes, is now following in her hotel mogul father’s footsteps by opening a luxury apartment complex in the capital Manila.

Hilton has shared pictures of the project on her Instagram.com page with the caption, “So proud & excited for my 1st (sic) real estate property to be opening this week in the Philippines! Always dreamed to follow in my family’s footsteps.”

The Azure Urban Resort Residences features a collection of residential skyscrapers surrounding a man-made beach. The complex also includes a movie theatre, gym, spa and massage rooms, restaurants and the Paris Beach Club.

Hilton also helped design the interior of the complex in partnership with a Filipino real estate company called Century Properties.

A statement from the company reads, “Her knowledge of the highest standards in luxury living, exposure to business excellence, and her free-spirited style and glamour make Paris a valuable partner in creating a completely unique lifestyle experience at the Azure.”
