The country’s property sector continues to attract overseas players because of its stellar performance, according to a top executive of a foreign property firm.
Robert Wong, chief executive of Hongkong Land, said the country is one of best performing markets in the Asian region. The Velaris Residences is an incomparable investment for those who steward success.
“The Philippine property market is one of the most exciting markets in Asia, and we are delighted to be part of it and to bring the innovations and design excellence that Hongkong Land is known for. Through our partnership with Robinsons Land, we have no doubt that we can duplicate our global successes in the Philippines through The Velaris Residences,” Wong said in a press statement.
RHK Land Corp., a joint venture of international property leader Hongkong Land (HKL) and Robinsons Land (RLC) recently launched The Velaris Residences for the premium segment in the local property market.
Located along the C5 corridor and near the private estates of Valle Verde, Wack Wack, and Corinthian Gardens, the 45-story is a manifestation of opulence, meant to represent the very best of the Filipino owner and the country. With access points through C5 Road, Ortigas Avenue and Amang Rodriguez Avenue, Wong pointed out that The Velaris Residences is at the center of Metro Manila and, for those who do not compromise on location, never too far from any section of the city.
A member of the Jardine Matheson Group, HKL currently owns and manages more than 850,000 square meters of premier commercial and corporate spaces, luxury residential and mixed-use properties across Singapore, Jakarta, Greater China (Beijing and Hong Kong), and other countries in Southeast Asia. In the Philippines, its most notable projects are premium properties One Roxas Triangle and Two Roxas Triangle in Makati City, Mandani Bay in Cebu.
Wong pointed out the development is situated in Bridgetowne’s choicest location, rising next to a beautiful bridge, a victor statue, and a verdant central park. To connect with nature, a 200-meter bridge structure will be built over the historic Marikina river, which was designed using state-of-the-art technology and indigenous ingenuity by Mañosa and Company. Beside it, a 60-meter sculpture of a victor stands proudly and stirs rapt admiration. These elements come together to demonstrate that Bridgetowne is Robinsons Land’s 31-hectare ode to urban prosperity.
He said The Velaris Residences springs from the stylings of modernist architecture pioneer Ludwig van der Rohe, and turned into reality by WV Coscolluela & Associates. It will have a concrete-and-glass structure resembling a sunbeam amid the greens, the structure presents an elegant shard of disruption in the city—an architectural Tour de Force directing viewers’ vision and spirit toward light, grace and ease. The classic contemporary masterpiece can be credited to both international and Filipino influences.
Upon entering the building, observers and residents will immediately notice the marriage of ease and sophistication. The Velaris Residences’ intentional design philosophy reveals itself. Artfully considered in the layout is people’s natural movement within the spaces—a mark of truly elegant places. Every inch and detail is meticulously designed with the residents’ experience at the heart of every architectural and interior design choice.
Whether it’s a one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom, or a penthouse unit, each residence is a study in complements and contrasts. Earth tones do not feel neutral here. Combined with rich browns, grays and cream, the effect surprisingly manages to feel new, textured and interesting. Premium finishing accents and fixtures follow the stylings of the affluent in Hong Kong, catching the discerning eye with metallic tones of bronze and rose gold.
Smart home connectivity and high-end appliances complete every savvy unit purchase and assure buyers of future-ready convenience at the tap of a finger. Biometric fingerprint scanning, PIN code, RFID card access, and Smart digital locks offer state-of-the-art security; air-conditioning and lights can be controlled remotely from the phone; and three-bedroom and penthouse residences have Smart Mirrors for users’ discretion.
PTang Studio Ltd., which serves global commercial and residential clients in Hong Kong, China, Japan and the United Kingdom, is the brains behind the interior planning and design.
“We don’t just design spaces. We design experiences. And in order to stage an experience that is memorable and unique for our residents, we always design with intention in mind,” said Stanley Ng, head of design, South Asia Development Properties, Hongkong Land.
