Low-density condo village in the city

A RESIDENTIAL option that brings condo living with a village feel through a low-rise, low-density design is what Avida Land is offering Makati homebuyers.

Avida on Thursday launched One Antonio, a six-story condominium located on Sacred Heart corner Dao streets, tucked in the quiet side of Barangay San Antonio, Makati City.


Many firsts

With One Antonio, Avida veers from towering residences for the first time to create a development befitting an established residential neighborhood. Avida has typically built multitower condo developments in the country’s business and commercial capital, according to Melissa D. Corpuz, manager, Project and Strategic Management Group.


One Antonio is Avida’s first residential condominium to feature a one-tower, low-rise (at only six stories high) and low-density (with only 198 units) design with 60 percent of the 7,059-square-meter land area dedicated to shared open spaces.

It is also the company’s first building with T-shaped design and with spacious single-loaded corridors throughout the development and a landscaped atrium. The design also maximizes natural light and ventilation across the property. Each unit has a 5-sqm balcony for residents to better appreciate these open spaces.

Corpuz identified the property’s strategic location, condo village living and value appreciation as its come-ons to homebuyers.

Strategically located, the property is within a 2-kilometer radius of the city’s landmarks including Makati Medical Center, Makati Central Post Office, Makati Sports Club, Ayala Triangle Gardens, and Ayala Center.  It is near schools, churches and even foreign embassies.

Condo-village living

Since San Antonio Village is already an established residential community, it had to be designed around the parameters of this existing environment.

“The property was conceptualized as a distinct condo-village development,” said Jojo Fabricante, head of Avida’s Innovation and Design Group.


“With its refreshing open spaces, tranquil ambiance, and close proximity to the Makati CBD, homeowners can maximize the benefits of living in a condominium without having to sacrifice the perks of living in a village,” he added.

Sixty percent of the property is allocated for open spaces and greenery.

Fabricante said: “The open grounds feature a lawn, pavilion, wading pool and kiddie pool, landscaped gardens, outdoor seating area, fitness area, playground, and a jogging path around the building. Traffic will also be at the minimum as there are various route options going in and out of the area.”

One Antonio has only 198 residential units and all come with 100-percent parking provision, with parking available on the ground and basement levels.

Like in other Avida condominiums, One Antonio units have the potential to increase in value by 8 percent yearly.

One Antonio offers two-bedroom units ranging in size from 52 to 60 sqm, and three-bedroom units in 62-sqm and 66-sqm area sizes. Units in One Antonio starts at P8 million. For 198 units, the total sales value is P1.7 billion.

Located in a flood-free zone, One Antonio will make for a refreshing and secure living environment in this serene part of Makati.

Turnover of One Antonio units will begin in September 2019.

Diverse portfolio

Avida’s diverse portfolio over the years have included distinctive condominiums in major cities nationwide, and residential villages complete with clubhouse, swimming pool, parks, gardens and open spaces.

A subsidiary of Ayala Land, Avida has a portfolio highlighted by residential condominiums, house and lot communities, mixed-used developments, and offices across the country.
