Megaworld is targeting execs with the luxury features of their latest high-end condo project, Salcedo Skysuites.
These days, most condo developments can boast of a swimming pool as a main feature, and not many can claim they have an infinity pool. But a heated outdoor infinity pool? Not one, until Megaworld Corporation’s high-end condo development in the Makati Central Business District (CBD), Salcedo Skysuites.
Designed for executives and other supervisory level professionals, the 31-storey Salcedo Skysuites aims to change “the way people live life at the top” by providing high-class features you wouldn’t normally find in a condo, particularly when you look at the penthouse amenities they have lined up for the project.
“We are offering our future residents the best amenities that any highly mobile individual needs at the end of the day. Here, one can relax and unwind overlooking the bustling metropolis,” according to vice-president of sales and marketing for Megaworld Makati CBD Eugene Lozano in a press briefing held recently.
So if you were a late 30s or early 50s executive looking to live the high life in Makati, what would attract you to Salcedo Skysuites, which promises to provide ‘a unique vertical lifestyle to future residents’?
At the top of the Salcedo Skysuites will be a one-of-a-kind penthouse containing what Megaworld claims is the first heated outdoor infinity pool in the country. Surrounding the infinity pool will be a pool lounge, sun deck, children’s pool and playground, and outdoor sitting areas. Completing the penthouse will be a function room with its own foyer, a game room, and a bi-level gym with a spa and sauna.
Each floor will have 11 units for a total of 253 units composed of studios, executive studios, one-bedroom units, and two-bedroom units furnished with various appliances. Units will range from 36 sqm (studio unit) to 80-84 sqm (two-bedroom). To emphasize luxury living even more, most units will come with a balcony and garden patio, and units with at least one bedroom will each have its own utility room and maid’s room.
“We are going beyond the basics in condominium living. What we will be offering in Salcedo Skysuites is something that any busy Makati executive and professional will appreciate.” Lozano explained of their latest project, which will rise on a 1,230 sqm lot along H. V. Dela Costa St. in Salcedo Village, Makati City.
At Php 150,000 per sqm, the Salcedo Skysuites, which has an estimated completion date of October 2018, is expected to rake in sales of Php 2 billion.
“We hope to sell out Salcedo Skysuites in less than six months. We are optimistic that with Makati CBD’s prime location and the high resale and rental values of properties within the area, people will still consider Makati CBD as their top priority location for property investments,” Lozano said.
During the same press briefing, Megaworld also revealed that the launch of Salcedo Skysuites is part of their plan to expand their current property portfolio of 27 developments to 30 by 2016. Next up for turnover is the super high-end luxury development Two Central, which they plan on delivering within the year.
