Nowadays, hearing news reports about heavy traffic around Metro Manila has become the new norm. Regardless of the season or national happening, the congestion only gets worse by the day. Traffic has definitely become a part of our lives, hindering our productivity and slowing down potential economic growth.
The inconvenience not only damages our competitiveness, health and daily expenditures; worse, it reduces our dedicated time for our loved ones.
Leading real estate developer, Megaworld Corporation, attempts to resolve this modern dilemma by launching San Antonio Residence Makati, its 20th residential tower situated in the premier business and commercial district of Makati. The project joins the company’s league of award-winning properties in the area, including, Three Central, Greenbelt Hamilton Tower 2, Paseo Heights and Salcedo Skysuites.
“An average daily commute is about four hours a day, especially to those who live in the South area like Alabang and Laz Pinas, and in the north like Quezon City. Commuting is unpaid work. And four hours in the road is four hour lesser time with your families.
“There’s a big demand of projects for starting families and young professionals who would want to live near their work places. As we all know, traffic is getting worse every single day,” says Megaworld Makati Vice President for Sales and Marketing Eugene Em Lozano.
“An average daily commute is about four hours a day, especially to those who live in the South area like Alabang and Laz Pinas, and in the north like Quezon City. Commuting is unpaid work. And four hours in the road is four hour lesser time with your loved ones. We wanted to address this situation that is why we came up with the concept of this project. We encourage the working parents to be able to go home at night to have dinner with the kids. We want the moms to have time to teach their kids homework. We want you to get the most of out of the time you deserve.”
San Antonio Residence is a 40-story residential masterpiece located on the west side of Makati-along Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue and in close proximity to the Makati Central Business District. Apart from being walking distance from the CBD, the project is also connected to the Skyway, enabling a quick five minutes drive to the airport. Furthermore, the area is known for its unique mix of galleries, delicatessens, top schools, corporate offices and one-of-a-kind retail experiences – perfect for starting urban families.
Megaworld Makati understands and would like build on the fact that the country is entering a demographic sweet spot, with majority of the population working and keener on investing.
One of the highlights of the project is the aptly named B.O.N.D. area, which stands for Begin, Open, Nurture and Discover – an open space where parents and children are encouraged to enjoy outdoor activities together right in the heart of the city. Here, working parents can teach and witness their kid’s different milestones, like riding a bike, learning how to play basketball, football, or even golf –memories that kids will forever treasure.
The project also features a unique interactive amenities: a street fitness park, gym, infinity pool, children’s pool, dance studio and a hideaway yard. San Antonio Residence is part of a self-sustaining community and will have its own two story mall at the ground floor, so that residents can enjoy convenience without having to leave their home.
The location lets residents connect to the energy of the CBD effortlessly, and allows them to return to the quiet and tranquillity of their home calmly. The ideal home is where one can truly bond with one’s families, raise kids and create lasting memories.
“This project is really for young professionals and starting families. We came up with a solution on how they can maximize the project’s covetable location through affordable payment options. We are the only developer in Makati that can offer flexible payment terms of 8,000 a month, with no down payment,” shares Lozano.
The units were master-planned to suit the lifestyle and space requirement of its future residents. Everything is definitely well-thought of, from the neighbourhood to the product lines, the amenities, down to catering to their lifestyle needs.
Unit choices range from studio cuts of 26 square meters to three bedroom cuts at 93 square meters and with loft options in between. Everything is thoughtfully designed to care for every member of the family, create stronger and closer bonds, and embody a live-work-play-learn community.
Whether at work or with the family, San Antonio Residence Makati enlivens every moment with a sense of fulfilment. One can move up the career ladder while enjoying the privilege of an ideal location worth coming home to – in no time.
