Acqua Residences | City life in nature setting

Have you wished that you could be in two places at once — immersed in the lush natural serenity of a tropical rainforest, for instance, but still connected to all that you love about being at home and in the city?

These days, global citizens yearn for a home where they can achieve a the city’s conveniences, you can then seek out the project’s amenities to see if they fit your lifestyle.”


Such advanced needs of today’s urban dweller are addressed in Century Properties’ latest residential development called Acqua Private Residences. As the project head and managing director of the real estate firm, Mr. Antonio was aware of these concerns and incorporated them into the masterplan and architecture of the 2.4-hectare, six-tower vertical village.

Acqua is located in Mandaluyong City and is accessible from Makati, via the newly-constructed Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge, that traverses the Pasig River and connects both cities. Through the bridge, travel time between the two cities is equivalent to a five-minute car ride or a 10-minute walk.

Mr. Antonio pointed out: “First, the location is one of the best as Acqua is situated at a point where two cities meet: Makati and Mandaluyong. This will give residents fast access to the great finds offered by the shopping mecca that is Mandaluyong City. And by just crossing the new bridge to the business district of Makati, Acqua residents can enjoy the Rockwell Center, more shopping destinations and the city’s nightlife scene.”

Century will also provide additional transportation to and from the Makati and Mandaluyong sides through a water shuttle that will be for the use of residents.

Acqua’s concept is centered on water as the bringer of life. The entire property is seen to be enveloped in lush greenery, rich foliage, open spaces and amenities that comprise two thirds of the development’s total land area.

Within The Pebble is a state-of-the-art total health, wellness, and fitness center, a 25-meter glass lap pool, a lagoon pool, a basketball court and juice bar.

The walking trails, pocket gardens across varying levels on all buildings and the rooftop parks complete with rock formations, treetop canopy, and ponds make a resident’s journey from his unit to any point in the entire development an adventure.

Acqua will also open a public space called The Riverwalk Promenade, a 10-meter wide and 300-meter long boardwalk that will showcase concept stores, shops, cafes and dining establishments.

Resort living in Makati ready

True to its promise, Geo Estate Development Corp. will begin the turnover of units in The Beacon Makati’s Roces Tower to their new owners, this month.

The Beacon is a resort-style three-tower condominium development rising in the middle of the Makati Central Business District, near to schools, hospitals, churches, hotels, and shopping centers such as Glorietta and Greenbelt.

The Roces tower is just the first of three towers that compose The Beacon. The construction of the second tower, the Arnaiz, is currently in full swing with 97 percent of units sold, while the third tower, the Amorsolo, was launched recently in the market.

The Beacon’s Roces Tower turnover is an important milestone for Geo Estate, as the event highlights this new but fast-rising property developer’s ability to deliver on its promises.

Geo Estate’s chairman, a respected name in the real estate industry, Francisco H. Licuanan III, said: “The company’s success depends on its resolve to maintain its vision and direction. Because we focus our expertise on just a few projects, we are able to provide high-quality output.”

The Beacon’s amenities are first-rate and will make one feel like you are always on a vacation, even though you are at home. The building features landscaped gardens, a 300-meter jogging trail with exercise stations, a 225-sqm two-level gym, a 450-sqm lap pool, a kiddie and toddler pool, and a spa.

It also has function rooms, an emergency clinic, a 20-seater private theater where you can enjoy exclusive time with your friends and family, and a spacious elegant lobby with a concierge to welcome you home every day.

But as far as luxury amenities go, the property touts its sky lounge as its crowning glory. It is where one can enjoy the pleasure of relaxation spent either in quiet meditation, with family and friends, or with food and wine – in the company of the view of the Manila Bay sunset, the Laguna de Bay sunrise, or the sparkling Makati skyline.

The property’s staff members ensure that the sky lounge, as well as the entire building, is well maintained at all times. Security is strict, and the area is guarded 24/7.
