One of the significant changes that happened because of the pandemic is the shift in people’s needs, specifically in the realm of wellness, safety and convenience. Condominium residents, in particular, have new expectations and requirements so they can have healthier, safer and more comfortable lives.
Indeed, property managers and developers have to step up their game.
The Velaris Residences by RHK Land leads the industry in launching modern and innovative condominium amenities to address residents’ evolving needs. The property already offers world-class amenities as it is, but its new features will definitely raise interest and excitement among current and would-be investors.
“Our design team from Hongkong Land, with their vast knowledge and experience in other countries, aims to bring the same level of excellence and innovation to The Velaris Residences,” Martha Herrera-Subido, head of Marketing at RHK Land, said.
RHK Land is a joint venture between international property development leader Hongkong Land and Philippine real estate giant Robinsons Land Corporation.
The Velaris Residences is RHK Land’s pilot project rising at the heart of Bridgetowne, which in itself is an emerging estate destination along C5.
Safety, convenience and wellness
First introduced in February 2020, the 45-story Velaris Residences has reshaped the Philippine luxury real estate industry. Among its notable amenities the market first knew about include, among others, a Japanese sento and lounge, a cards and wine room, an Olympic length infinity pool, a multilevel landscape garden and a SkyClub.
Today, it doesn’t stop at providing its affluent buyers with modern comforts for a truly remarkable condominium living.
Residents of The Velaris Residences will have access to a residents’ portal, a mobile app that will be available in Google Play and the App Store.
Through the app, residents can conveniently pay for condominium dues, submit maintenance requests, coordinate deliveries, communicate with the property administration office, read news and announcements.
Using the app, residents can also reserve a smart locker and book a workstation, two of the property’s newly added amenities.
Parcels may be deposited in the smart lockers located on the ground floor of the building until the resident is ready to retrieve them. This is a novel and safe way to receive deliveries.
Office pods and personal work stations
Because many Filipinos are working from home either 100% of the time or through a hybrid setup, RHK Land designed office pods and personal workstations at The Velaris Residences.
As the country’s first condominium development to introduce this amenity, The Velaris Residences offers its residents a gorgeous workspace designed to help them stay focused and productive.
It features soundproof office pods that are ideal for virtual meetings, recordings, writing, reading and other activities requiring peace and quiet. Personal workstations that feature modern cubicles and creative nooks are also available.
Golf simulator studio
Using best-in-class camera-based technology, the golf simulator studio gives residents the opportunity to practice their swing without having to leave the building. Rain or shine, residents can indulge in their favorite sport to stay physically conditioned.
This space features a solid wood enclosure and platform, high-speed line scan cameras, an energy-absorbing diffuser screen and a cinema-quality projector.
Outdoor fitness station
This is being offered at the Velaris Residences to help residents achieve their fitness goals. Aside from the Lifestyle Gym at the condominium, residents have the option to work out at an outdoor fitness station if they feel like exercising amid the lush greenery and landscaped gardens.
Designed by fitness experts, this space features fitness equipment built to withstand any weather.
“Safety and convenience have never been more important to our buyers, and this is why our residents’ portal, smart lockers and office pods will play a big role in their lifestyle. Additionally, we want to help our residents stay active without having to step out of the property. Our golf simulator studio and outdoor fitness stations will help address that,” Herrera-Subido shared.
The Velaris Residences’ design philosophy
The Velaris Residences adopted an intentional design philosophy, embracing a process in which the resident’s interactions with the property are considered at each point in the design process.
Because of the property’s innovative design, it earned several major awards in various property, real estate and interior design award-giving bodies like the Asia Pacific Property Awards and the PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards.
