Avida introduces new residence in Vertis North
Real estate firm Avida Land has launched its latest residential project in Vertis North, the 46-hectare property, including Trinoma, expected to emerge as the new central business and lifestyle district of Quezon City.
Vertis North strategically intersects major transit points, specifically, Edsa, North Avenue, Agham Road and Quezon Avenue. It has a direct connection to the MRT North Avenue station through Trinoma.
Avida Towers Sola, which has 31 residential stories, will occupy part of this master-planned development of Ayala Land Inc. Its introduction follows the success of Avida Towers Vita in Vertis North.
Adjacent to its predecessor, Avida Towers Sola will offer units facing Vertis North Gardens, the 2-hectare park made of wide lawns and greenery and features sloped, terraced gardens for public events. The gardens will be similar to world-class central parks and offer breathing space in the midst of the district.
Ayala Land’s commitment to sustainable living is reflected in Vertis North innovations like Stormwater Management System, an integrated basement parking facility for more pedestrian-friendly and highly walkable district and the landscaped greens of Vertis North Gardens.
To prevent flooding, integrated within the gardens’ design are water detention facilities such as two detention ponds and infiltration stripes lining the streets and two detention ponds.
On its other side, Avida Towers Sola faces Edsa and provides residents with the convenience and accessibility of this main thoroughfare. Other main transit points nearby are Quezon Avenue, Agham Road and North Avenue.
Layout options, amenities
The first tower will have 1,004 residences in a mix of studio, one-bedroom and right-sized two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units. The right-sized units were designed to provide family members more of their own spaces. The two-bedroom units also come with a multipassenger toilet and bath, allowing simultaneous use of the facilities.
Aside from these new layout options, residents will enjoy amenities like a lap pool, kiddie pool, indoor gym and a clubhouse with a large function hall for as much as 150 guests. Prices for Avida Towers Sola units start at P2.6 million.
With Vertis North growing perceptibly, residents of Avida Towers Sola will experience life in an area dubbed the new “city center of Quezon City.”
Construction of cleared areas of the estate continues steadily with land development now above 90-percent completion. Utilities, road networks and an innovative Stormwater Management System that runs throughout the district will be completed by December.
Vertis North Mall, past the Vertis North Gardens, will feature four retail clusters. An open-air interconnection with lush landscaping and water feature is designed to traverse the entire mall. For entertainment, the mall boasts of several cinemas including a 400-seater cinema with a balcony fitted with recliner seats.
Just above the mall property will be a three-tower office development, the Vertis North Corporate Center, geared toward BPO locators. By the end of the year, the mall and first office tower will be operational.
Largest hotel in QC
Beside the mall will be Quezon City’s largest hotel, Seda Vertis North. The hotel will have 438 guest rooms and will be completed in time with the district’s gardens and underground parking in 2017.
“Avida Towers Sola is gaining a lot of interest from different markets as a mid-affordable high-rise residence in Vertis North, and a last opportunity to gain an Avida residence in the district,” said Raquel Cruz, Avida Land Corporate Planning Group head.
Avida Towers Sola will turn over units of its first tower by 2020.
