This defines the kind of relaxation that many would seek for at the end of an exhausting, grueling work week, particularly for those overwhelmed by the urban jungle’s stressful, daily grind. And many would go to great lengths just to gain the much sought access to a pristine sanctuary where one can recover and rejuvenate. Often, nearby resorts and other similar travel destinations that claim to offer paradise like ambiance, have become this generation’s instant solution. Such behavior is, however, with basis.
Benefits of nature
Experts have long recommended the benefits of indulging oneself in nature as a way to de-stress. A change in scenery, a breath of fresh air, and being directly in touch with nature are expected to help one to rejuvenate and avoid being too burned out from work. In fact, clinical studies have shown that individuals who are able to fully relax and recover from their work demands create better decisions and produce better results.
Thus, it is no surprise to see individuals flocking to various destinations in the country for that valuable, quality time off work. But the huge costs and at times, the horrors of getting to your destination— from delayed flights to overly booked rooms—can instead leave one even more drained and exhausted. Fortunately, many real estate developers have begun venturing into developments patterned after some of the best resort destinations in the world, and with designs directly inspired by nature. These developers have provided many individuals that much-deserved convenience and privilege of having access to a private sanctuary, or getting a chance at that “weekend escape” without having to leave the comfort of their homes.
This, in fact, is what property developer Empire East Land Holdings Inc. has been doing for years now: providing homeowners a piece of paradise, an access to their own Eden. Empire East has been specializing in the creation of residential communities for the middle-income market segment and in the sale and lease of commercial and industrial spaces. Over the years, it has managed to build landmark residential communities that have transformed the urban and suburban landscapes.
A brand in touch with the humanity of its customers, Empire East continues to create new and better ways of life by tapping into what the market really want and need, now and in the future. Recently, it has ventured into delivering resort-inspired developments which the company believes will again further enhance and uplift the living experience of future residents.
One such development is the modern Asian-themed The Rochester, located along Elisco Road in San Joaquin, Pasig City. The Rochester offers a mixture of chic and rejuvenating amenities assuring residents a lifetime of relaxation, amusement and leisure. “With its fully constructed clubhouse and a complete array of indoor and outdoor amenities, the resort vibe of The Rochester, is undeniable. Future homeowners are sure to be spoiled for choice at the clubhouse, which showcases a bar with lounge, a game area for billiard and darts, a gym as well as a function hall that can accommodate up to 100 guests,” said Empire East President and CEO Atty. Anthony Charlemagne C. Yu.
The Rochester offers a variety of vibrant outdoor amenities that continue the vein of upscale recreation. Surrounding the centerpiece 25-meter-long lap pool and children’s pool is a children’s playground, gazebo, basketball/tennis court, jogging paths and pocket gardens. Add to that is the residents’ easy access to a property administration office, business center, convenience shop and laundry pick-up station within the development. “The development, imbued with a keen sense of place by Empire East, makes neighborly interaction a given.
With a large part of the community set aside for open spaces and greenery, getting truly connected to oneself and to others becomes an everyday privilege,” Yu related. Complementing the insightfully planned play zone are condominium units in a wide range of layouts. On offer are one-bedroom suites; a suite with two or three bedrooms; and bi-level suites, whose cuts range from 24.20 sqm to 93 sqm. ADVT.
