Filinvest Premiere launches Fortune Hill showroom
A three-bedroom showroom of Fortune Hill, being bruited about as a residential jewel in upscale San Juan City, was inaugurated on Friday last week by Filinvest Premiere, the high-end brand of the Gotianun-led property developer Filinvest Land Inc.
The meticulously laid-out showroom that the residential masterpiece boasts of, makes use of space through well-thought-out interior design ideas by architect Winston Lim of Artella Ltd., a Shanghai-based Singaporean firm. It has high ceiling and large windows, allowing air to circulate freely and minimize the use of air-conditioning. The absence of columns and beams creates a sense of openness to the living space. The interiors are made elegant by the blending of rich, modern elements from the West and exquisite finish from the East.
Fortune Hill, a two-tower, midrise residential enclave, is rising on 3,400-square-meter area that used to be the site of the Filinvest main office. One tower will be 15 stories high while the other will have 12 floors. The coveted address of the best development in the area is at the corner of P. Gomez and P. Burgos streets in San Juan City.
It was Filinvest Group founder Andrew L. Gotianun Sr. who personally chose the location because Feng Shui masters found it auspicious.
Filinvest senior vice president and Metro Manila cluster head Steve Chien explained: “The property is in a very ‘auspicious positioning’ on all four sides. Mr. Andrew Sr. knew this for a fact. It is in this part of San Juan City that Mr. and Mrs. Gotianun built their fortune and built their businesses. This good fortune is now being shared to future residents of Fortune Hill.”
Iconic architecture by Asya Design Partners blends Chinese tradition with modern aesthetic.
There will be 92 units with sizes ranging from 94 to 150 sq m. A grand, five-star bilevel lobby serves as a drop-off area.
The development encourages traditional family values. For instance, the luxurious amenities will surely make parents spend quality time with their kids. The residential enclave’s proximity to the city’s Filipino-Chinese communities will make families closely knit. Target homebuyers are those living in Filipino-Chinese neighborhoods in the city.
According to Chien, Filinvest president and CEO Josephine Gotianun Yap envisioned the 3,000-sq-m amenities area to be family-oriented. Since families prioritize their children’s education, there will be a 100-sq-m library with private tutorial room. Other amenities planned by her are a daycare center and outdoor kids’ play area, a meditation and tai-chi garden, a music room, two kitchens, a 20-meter lap and infinity poo, a mini-theater/KTV room and music hall, multipurpose function rooms and a family club.
The project is of low density since only four units occupy a floor. Personal access keys to the elevator will be provided to the unit owners, thus ensuring privacy and exclusivity. In each building, there will be three high-speed elevators—two for the use of residents and one for the service staff. Each unit has a foyer that serves as a turnaround space to shake off negative vibes or can be used by the owner for any purpose.
The larger unit comes with two parking slots while the one-bedroom unit has one parking slot at the three-level parking.
Fortune Hill is in the middle of the Ortigas and Makati Central Business Districts. It is near prominent educational institutions like Xavier School, Immaculate Concepcion Academy, Jubilee Christian Academy, La Salle Green Hills, and Saint Pedro Poveda College.
Completing the project team are Pona Veridiano of Tropic Asia, landscaping; PCS Philippines, structural; F.L. Figueroa and Santory Fu Associates, mechanical; and Domingo I. Lagman Engineering, protection.
