Filinvest Premiere’s desire to incorporate modern functional design with elements of feng shui has led to the creation of The Signature, their latest condo offering that saw its launch recently in an event featuring feng shui expert Hans Cua.
Filinvest Land Inc. niche market management group head Marjorie Siao explained the name ‘The Signature’: "When you leave a signature, it's something that will last. Your name, your reputation. It is designed by masters, and it's also designed in a way that you make sure you have all the design elements. It's fluid, it has openness, it has luxury, it has elegance. It has also longevity. These are all put together to make sure that it will last.”
The Signature, which occupies one hectare of land along A. Bonifacio Avenue in Quezon City, is composed of three residential towers with commercial spaces at the ground floor, as well as over 60% of green open space. According to Filinvest, The Signature’s aesthetics are inspired by the Summer Palace in Beijing, noting the green open spaces and resort-style pool dubbed “The Signature Lake”.
“Truly a blissful community, The Signature offers residents and guests large indoor and outdoor amenity areas that promotes an upscale, relaxed lifestyle,” Filinvest Land Inc.’s senior vice president Steve C. Chien remarked.
Much like Filinvest Premiere’s other projects, the 348-unit development The Signature is designed to offer exclusivity through low-density living. Each tower of the mid-rise project has 15 levels, and each level contains only eight or nine 2- or 3-bedroom units. Other safety and privacy elements include keycard access, separate access for public and private spaces, and 24-hour security.
Another priority for the developer is encouraging family togetherness with features like swimming pools, library, mini theater, and game room.
“We make sure that our amenities allow you to build strong family ties with your relatives and friends, who are also your neighbors and your children has a good environment for learning,” Chien shared.
A 2-bedroom unit with an average of 87sqm has a minimum price of Php 9 million, while a 125sqm 3-bedroom can go for at least Php 14 million. The Signature’s first tower, Siao mentioned, is already 20% sold and will be turned over in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Good fortune in design
One of The Signature’s best features, according to Filinvest, is its adherence to several feng shui guidelines that bring good luck and prosperity to residents.
“The architectural design of the Signature promotes the use and flow of natural light that illuminates the unit. Thus, creating good feng shui energy, which is the bright, refreshing, uplifting, beneficial to your health and well-being,” Cua explained.
Stability, Cua said, is shown by creating a structure that’s higher in the back than in front. He also detailed several other feng shui factors in The Signature that make it a lucky property, like curved paneling that inhibit bad feng shui, water features that attract wealth, and proper spacing in between structures to allow positive energy to flow through freely.
“Good feng shui equals to good energy. The Signature has the positive Feng Shui elements, which ensures that the property increases its value in the future,” Cua stated.
Everything within reach
According to Siao, choosing the QC location was their attempt to put residents in close proximity to several key establishments in the Balintawak area, and to provide them with access to the upcoming development of a skyway connection to the North Luzon Expressway.
“We feel that Quezon City is a vibrant area and we also like that it has the new Chinatown corridor (in Banawe). We also learned that the skyway and everything is passing through here so now there's a link between north and south. You want to be where things are happening, where there's prospect for growth. This community is actually a potential growth area,” she expounded.
Some of the establishments and institutions closest to The Signature are Sienna College and Grace Christian College, the Guatama Chinese Temple and the Sto. Domingo Church, and Philippine General Hospital. Also nearby are the Banawe Business Center and the Quezon City CBD.
