Glitz, glamour and all that jazzBy Theresa S. Samaniego
Philippine Daily Inquirer
A spectacle of coats and ties, overflowing wines and Broadway-like fanfare regaled guests in a red carpet affair held recently by Megaworld Corp. to launch its latest project, the Uptown Ritz.
Displaying the glitz and glamour of the high society, Megaworld Corp. showed guests exactly the kind of lifestyle that awaits the future residents of the 45-story Uptown Ritz Residence, the company’s first all-suites condominium project within the 15-hectare township at the Bonifacio Global City.
Surely, this Megaworld project will yet again tickle the fancy, pique the interest and catch the discerning eye of any affluent Filipino homebuyer.
Upping the ante
“Uptown Ritz is our second development in Uptown Bonifacio which is a 15-hectare township project. With this development, we are continuing the trend of setting the benchmarks, which epitomize luxury and convenience. We are again upping the ante by allowing you to buy into the uptown lifestyle,” said Noli D. Hernandez, senior vice president for sales and marketing of Megaworld.
This particular development, which will have only six to 10 units per floor—thus assuring future residents of utmost privacy and ultimate exclusivity—is a reflection of the improving economic climate in the country, according to Hernandez.
“People—our buyers—are moving up. This development is targeted to meet the needs of the young successful individual. We also found out that there is a growing demand for bigger units and so we feel that a lot of our previous buyers, who bought smaller units, are now ready to move up to bigger ones,” he further explained.
Units at the Uptown Ritz Residence, which will be turned over by mid-2017, will not have the standard studio and one-bedroom unit, but will instead offer a more spacious two-bedroom, three-bedroom and even four-bedroom suites that will truly satisfy one’s desire of living in comfort and style.
More than ample space
“When you talk about luxury mostly it’s about space, so here we offer more than ample space. Also in Megaworld we don’t just turn over units. We don’t just develop buildings. We build and create communities,” Hernandez claimed.
“So when you buy from us you don’t just end up with units with four walls. You actually buy into a lifestyle, a community and that is what sets us apart,” he noted.
Hernandez pointed out what Megaworld has done at the Forbes Town Center, in McKinley Hill and in Eastwood, where the company had “practically transformed the entire area into something glitzy and glamourous. And we have done the same for Newport.”
All Megaworld property developments perfectly integrate residential, office, commercial and school components that ultimately define today’s vibrant lifestyle. And this is evident in the relaxing, sophisticated lifestyle experience that the Uptown Ritz will evoke, with its contemporary architecture that will showcase a striking glass and aluminum façade.
P4.1B in sales
The Uptown Ritz, which is expected to generate about P4.1 billion in sales, will likewise provide future residents a bevy of premium amenities, which will be located on the building’s first eight floors, and is sure to set the word luxury a notch higher.
At the lower deck of the seventh floor, future residents will enjoy numerous leisure activities while using the lap pool, children’s pool, lanai and outdoor area, pool deck, wooden deck, children’s play area and nursery room, spacious function room and business center.
The fitness center meanwhile is located at the upper deck of the seventh floor, while a worry-free zone will be dedicated for your kids at the Nursery room on the upper deck as well. The 2nd to 6th floors will be reserved for parking spaces.
The Uptown Ritz is also strategically and conveniently located near key establishments such as St. Luke’s Medical Center, International School Manila, British International School and Makati CBD. The nearby three-story Uptown Mall which would house high-end dining and shopping areas would definitely complete the upscale living experience the said development aims to provide.
“I cannot imagine a more luxurious lifestyle than this, having everything within your reach. Uptown Ritz is the latest manifestation of that drive to raise the bar of lifestyle living,” Hernandez concluded.
