Among the rising “jewel” landmarks is DMCI Homes’ latest project in the city, aptly called “Torre de Manila.” Developed by the leading residential resort specialist, DMCI Homes, Torre de Manila is a resort-inspired high-rise condominium tower that will further solidify Manila’s status as a residential city for today’s upwardly mobile professionals and start-up families.
Located on a strategic vantage within the bohemian district of Ermita, Torre de Manila will rise in the heart of Manila, surrounded by popular and historic destinations that add prestige to its image. Found beside Sta. Isabel College, Torre de Manila’s surrounding area also consists of Rizal Park (40 meters across), Adamson University by the east, Manila City Hall and SM City Manila by the north, Manila Doctors Hospital at the west, the LRT-UN Avenue Station at the south, and the majestic Manila Bay at three blocks away.
This fantastic location will offer residents close proximity to all the necessary establishments – schools, hospitals, religious centers, business districts and commercial areas as well as major thoroughfares. This makes the project an ideal address for Manila (and to some extent Pasay) denizens seeking to upgrade their residence. It can also serve as a halfway home for those living in the nearby suburbs including Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, and Rizal.
Aside from the location, Torre de Manila presents more advantages as a family-oriented development. Targeted towards middle-income young professionals as well as newly-married couples and early nesters, the project offers functional benefits that enhance their urban lifestyle, including best value pricing across the market; green and sustainable design through more open spaces and generous amenities; plus quality workmanship and a faster than average rate of project completion.
With the city of Manila getting saturated by residents living in cramped residences, Torre de Manila stands as out as alternative address for families through its list of amenities and resort-like environment. This is implemented a high-ceiling lobby with other amenities: an open lounge area, a game area, an AV room, fitness center, indoor badminton court, children’s play area, tree court, basketball court, lounge pool, kiddie pool, pool deck, roof garden, and a grand sky lounge that showcases sunrise views at the side facing Antipolo hills, and romantic sunset views of the Manila bay.
Torre de Manila’s building features include the ingenious Sky Patio and a landscaped atrium that allows the maximum entry of light and air inside the building, together with six high speed elevators, back-up power for common areas, 24/7 security (security patrols, CCTV cameras, electrified perimeter fence), entrance gate with guardhouse, property management office, fire protection system (water sprinklers, fire exits, fire hose cabinets), rentable storage spaces at the lower parking level, sewage treatment system, and drainage system.
With an eye on the future, Torre de Manila still pays tribute to the city’s old glory, mainly through the development’s contemporary Art Deco architecture. This allusion to nostalgia is part of the design intent to make the structure blend with other Art Deco landmarks of the city, including the Manila Metropolitan Theatre and the Far Eastern University.
Even the Torre de Manila logo gives ode to Art Deco through four color blocks that depict the building’s facade and Sky Patio. The logo also signifies dynamism, while its organic colors of grey, maroon, burnt sienna and green were used to reflect the property’s thrust for a resort-inspired lifestyle. The logo was actually inspired by beautiful and intricate stained glass art deco windows during the 1920s and 1930s.
The Art Deco theme is likewise designed to blend seamlessly across the development through intricate touches of contemporary building design. The aesthetic benefits also extend to practical applications and function, through the DMCI Homes signature Lumiventt building design technology that promises well-ventilated, well-lit, and refreshing building interiors, versus the other high-rise prototypes which can only offer restrictive spaces with no room to breathe.
Design inspiration aside, Torre de Manila likewise pays homage to the legacy of values passed on from the era of years past: a genuine sense of prestige, dignity, belonging, and family.
With a target of start-up families coming from almost the same social and economic background, Torre de Manila will foster a sense of community, enriched through the family-oriented amenities and project features. Unlike the majority of existing projects around Manila, Torre de Manila will have no commercial establishments inside the property and instead offer privacy and exclusivity, as well as a lower population density. This will allow residents to live at ease and in harmony with their loved ones and immediate neighbors.
The 41-storey residential tower offers an inventory mix of predominantly 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom units, all with generous sizes that are the right fit for the needs of young starting families. With a location at the heart of the Philippines’ capital, in the country’s one of the most prestigious historical districts, and a majestic view of the Manila bay, DMCI Homes’ Torre de Manila is the perfect place to build a life of a growing young Filipino family.
