Encouraging lives well lived is what Livingsprings Communities set out to do when they first brought to life Tres Palmas, a Mediterranean-inspired condominium that possesses the aesthetics and functionalities of a resort right in the middle of the city. A brand that prides itself in truly putting the needs of their residents first, they create what they call an ‘overflowing life experience’, from the location of the project to the amenities it offers.
"It depends on what matters most to you. To some people, it's family," managing director Arch. Monique Albert-Lopez said. "Also, it's creating an atmosphere of relaxation. We also try to keep the environment very inspiring."
Situated on a 4,036 sqm lot along Pedro Cayetano Blvd. (formerly Levi Mariano Ave.), Tres Palmas is only a few minutes away from the central business district, schools, hospitals, and recreational centers of Bonifacio Global City, as well as those of Makati and Pasig. The location, says Albert-Lopez, is essential in ensuring that residents are able to live fulfilling lives.
“When family members work so far away from home, they spend less time with the family. (Tres Palmas) is close enough to offices and schools so they'll have more time either for themselves or with their families,” she explained.
The development is composed of 182 units spread among three eight-storey towers: Seville, Mallorca, and Marbella. Seville, which was turned over on September 2012, contains 47 units; while the 61-unit Mallorca was turned over on June 2014. Livingsprings broke ground for Marbella in June 2015, and is scheduled for turnover by the third quarter of 2016.
Tres Palmas is designed for low-density living to give residents a heightened sense of privacy and exclusivity. Each tower has six residential levels, with only five to 12 units to a floor. These units range from studio (27 square meters) to three-bedroom (96 square meters), all of which come with upgraded finishes and are sensibly priced to cater to a varied market.
"We have new homeowners, newly married, investors and OFWs. The types of people that buy have diversified. There are a lot of people from a lot of walks of life. In terms of job positions, we have a lot of doctors, lawyers, managers, and celebrities," Albert-Lopez noted.
As a resort-like boutique development, Tres Palmas has amenities that enrich its residents’ health and well-being, such as a swimming pool and a gym. Lounges, a function room, and a sky deck serve as centers where they can socialize with neighbors and friends. Aside from housing the project’s model unit, the commercial arcade in front of the development is occupied by retail shops such as a 24-hour convenience store, a bakery, and a pharmacy, ensuring that last-minute needs are only a few steps away.
Security and comfort are achieved by providing residents with facilities like heat and fire detection, an alarm sprinkler system, 24-hour building security and maintenance, CCTV cameras in critical areas, and a generator that supplies 100 percent back-up for common areas and allocated load to all units.
