With all the new residential condominiums that are fast on the rise in metro manila, how can one select the most ideal to suit a chosen lifestyle?
Illustrata Residences, rising in the New Manila-Greenhills neighborhood, is preparing to offer the ideal features for a condo lifestyle.
First is its location. Illustrata Residences is a mid-rise condominium with 6 buildings that occupies a 1.2 hectare lot along Boni Serrano Avenue. That puts it in the residential area of affluent families, and also in an area close to some of the best schools, churches, commercial establishments and important business districts such as Ortigas Center.
Second, its design. Each unit is signed in an almost square-cut to give room to create one’s personal space. Luna, Illustrata’s first building, is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2015. With 12 floors – 10 of them being residential – there will be studio and one-bedroom units at only 24 unit per floor.
The second building, to be completed by the third quarter of 2015 is named Jeana. It will have 15 floors, 14 of them residential floors offering studio, one-bedrooom, and bi-level (two floors) units, some of which come with a balcony. Only 16 units will occupy each floor.
Third, the project will offer amenities that promote everything from a relaxed to active lifestyle. The out-door pool deck will give access to a lap pool, wading pool and children’s pool. Meetings and celebrations can be help in the function room or multi-purpose hall. Provisions for a gym, an indoor playground and utility areas have been prepared.
Fourth, practically and security have been considered. Each building has a lobby with security provisions, two elevators and utility areas. CCTV cameras will be part of its security system.
Fifth, it offers financing schemes – a graduated bank financing where availing a unit can start at P7,500 per month and straight line bank financing where monthly equity payments have monthly amortization at prevailing interest rate.
Illustrata Residences is a development of Property Company of Friends (Pro-Friends), one of the fastest growing property development firm. In 13 years, it has delivered 15 projects with 11 projects ongoing.
The showroom is located at 39 Boni Serrano Ave. (Formerly Santolan Road), Quezon City.
