Attaching well-known name to a project improves building’s appealBy Tessa Prieto-Valdes
Philippine Daily Inquirer
High-end real estate is truly on the rise these days. It seems the current strategy is to attach a well-known name to a project, thus improving the building’s appeal.
A great example is Rockwell Land’s greatest original, the Proscenium. Masterfully designed by international design icon, star-architect Carlos Ott, the Proscenium will add 3.6 hectares to the prime community of the Rockwell Center in Makati. The entire complex will be composed of three towers. The first two have already been launched—the Kirov and the Sakura. The third will be called Lincoln.
With Lincoln, Rockwell has inscribed for itself a new place in luxury residential development, creating a remarkable fusion of function and distinctive design. This tower presents a wide array of unit cuts, giving Rockwell’s exclusive clientele their choice of first-class living spaces.
At Lincoln, the Proscenium offers a remarkable selection of studio units that boast of space nearly as large as typical one-bedroom apartments in other developments. Discerning buyers also have a choice of one-bedroom and two-bedroom units in this exceptional residence.
Investors seeking to discover a new gem in the local property scene will find that units in Lincoln will be yet another premium investment, with the Rockwell signature of quality, expert planning and innovative architecture enduring in every tower in the Proscenium.
The plans for the Proscenium complex are grand. A sweeping entrance welcomes residents, with cascading waterfalls gracing the lobby drop-off. The amenities are all top-of-the-line, from CCTV systems to every luxury add-on one can think of. There is a spacious swimming pool and a grand lawn, children’s pool, gym and spa spread over the Proscenium amenities deck, an irresistible invitation for residents to enjoy the luxury of time.
The most sensational feature is a 600-seater performance hall that will be the home of world-class cultural performances. Bringing art even closer to its residents, the Proscenium will house the Lopez Museum, featuring the family’s impressive collection of Philippine works of art. Completing the exquisite lifestyle in the Proscenium is a retail row lined with unique luxury brands and fine-dining restaurants, adding elements of gourmet and style to the already prestigious address. For inquiries, there is a Sales Lounge at the South Court of the Power Plant Mall.
High end implies premium in everything about a real estate development. One premium touch that always adds to the ambience is a mosaic for a wall or floor finish.
