Where you live does matter.
In real estate, one cannot afford to undermine the importance of location, whether it’s for an office building, a mall, dining establishments, or even your own home.
After all, an exceptional location affords one the luxury of unmatched convenience and accessibility, defining that modern, cosmopolitan lifestyle. More importantly however, a strategic location can also affect the future value of your property, allowing you to potentially fetch higher prices once you put it out on the secondary market.
In the Philippines, key cities and central business districts (CBDs) are deemed to be among the most ideal locations even for a home. For instance, Makati City—despite the hefty property price it commands—continues to be one of the most coveted addresses by those who work in the area, or by others who are primarily drawn to its highly modern, sophisticated vibe.
Fortunately, new residential projects offer the luxury of living near a thriving financial and business district that is home to premium offices, upscale lifestyle establishments, and posh residential villages.
Property giant Megaworld Corp. is putting up the 57-storey Vion Tower, which is poised to stand out as the tallest residential building along Edsa-Makati. As it stands tall along Edsa corner Chino Roces Ave. and visible as far as the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and Manila Bay, this newest high rise is set to become a landmark in this side of Makati with its illuminated tower crown.
“The future is ready at the Vion Tower. Here, we want to offer residents with the basics of condo living plus the convenience of smart technology and design innovation, which can be seen in the lobby and even in the amenities,” explained Eugene Em Lozano, first vice president for sales and marketing of Megaworld Makati.
Much can be admired of the Vion Tower, particularly its strategic location. And for any urbanite, such accessibility is considered a luxury nowadays, given the metro’s mad, infernal traffic.
It’s worthy to note that the Vion Tower is just within walking distance from the proposed Magallanes transport hub; less than 10 minutes away to and from NAIA via Skyway; less than 15 minutes away from the bustling Entertainment City and Manila Bay area; and only 20 minutes away from Quezon City via MRT. The MRT Magallanes station is just a two-minute walk from the tower.
And within a five-kilometer radius, one can easily reach the CBDs of Makati and Fort Bonifacio, sprawling commercial complexes, internationally branded hotels, premium grade offices, a hospital, schools, and churches, among other institutions. Clearly, there are benefits to living right within one of the most dynamic cities in the country.
Key features, amenities
But if you don’t fancy a walk or commute to shop or dine out, you can simply go down to the two-level retail area of the Vion Tower. A multi-level podium parking is also available for use of both residents and guests.
Meanwhile, the Vion Tower also features generous amenities that will enable residents to achieve a more holistic, well-balanced lifestyle. Exclusive to their use are the 25-meter lap pool and wading pool, function hall, fitness center, outdoor fitness area, children’s playground, day care center, relaxation lounge and a library.
The residential tower, scheduled for completion in 2024, will also be highlighted by future-ready facilities such as a Smart Parcel Delivery System, which allows an automated receiving, claiming and storage of parcels.
On offer are units with cuts ranging from studio (up to 31 sqm), one-bedroom (up to 51 sqm), to two-bedroom (up to 71 sqm)—some of which have their own balconies.
To date, Megaworld has already launched a total of 28 residential towers in Makati City alone, with a total inventory of around 6,500 units, making it among the biggest condominium developers in the country’s premier financial district.
And with the addition of the Vion Towers, Megaworld will not only offer a new residential tower, but also a future-ready, iconic landmark that will redefine Makati’s skyline anew.
