Nothing beats the warmth and security of your own home. But buying a new one is a big decision. So what exactly does “prime real estate” mean? Christine Jacob-Sandejas visited The Velaris Residences to find out.
During her tour inside the beautiful and award-winning show gallery of the Velaris Residences, Jacob-Sandejas saw for herself why it has won several international awards in the past year alone. In the prestigious Asia Pacific Property Awards 2021, The Velaris Residences was the winner in the high-rise residential development category. In the recently concluded PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards, it won in the Best Condo Interior Design category, and was highly commended in the Best High-End Development in Metro Manila category.

The Velaris Residences is a 45-storey premium condominium, sitting at a prime spot in Bridgetowne, a destination estate in Pasig City. Location is always one of the most important things to consider when it comes to buying or investing in a property, and The Velaris Residences fits the bill. On the property’s location, Jacob-Sandejas said “Accessibility is likewise no problem thanks to C5 Road, Ortigas Extension, and Amang Rodriguez Avenue, which give easy access to both Ortigas Center and Bonifacio Global City. If you need to go to schools, commercial buildings, hospitals, everything is within reach.”
Aside from its prime location, The Velaris Residences offers masterfully designed units and amenities all aimed at enhancing the experience of the homeowner at each touchpoint. All units come with smart home features like smart locks, air conditioning, and lights. For bigger units, there’s a little something extra: smart mirrors that can turn into a screen for browsing the internet and even checking your health and vitals. These technologies exemplify The Velaris Residences’ philosophy that luxury should always be complemented by innovation.
Residents also have access to an impressive array of amenities that are simply a cut above typical condo living. These include a Japanese onsen with indoor and outdoor hot pools and an Olympic-length infinity pool right in the middle of a garden oasis. Residents can also make use of its events pavilion, a business lounge, and a kids’ playroom.
For exercise, residents can choose from the gym, yoga room, outdoor yoga deck, and dance studio. There are many other options if you want to unwind, but perhaps the best part is the SkyClub, which provides great views, drinks, and an exclusive suite of interconnected club-like facilities.
