Fueling students’ social and study needs
It’s a whole new ballgame when you step into college. You’re on your own and so whether you’re ready or not, you will need to be more independent and responsible. You will no longer be spoon-fed like in high school.
But imagine how much more complicated life becomes if you’re a college student who has to live away from the comforts of your home.
Boarding houses and dormitories on and off campus have always been available to students. There are essentials, however, that both students and parents have deemed to be must-haves in an ideal student residence.
You will be doing a lot of time hitting the books which means a dedicated study room is important in your home away from home. Some of us can study inside the bedroom, resisting the temptation of sleep. Others, however, are not as resistant to the call of the bed. Having a study room and a resident lounge for doing school work other than your bedroom at least assures you that you can get things done after class hours.
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” We have heard this saying time and time again from our grandparents and it actually holds true. You can’t just spend all your time in college with your nose stuck in your books. You need to take care of your entire well-being.
Having rec areas such as a fitness center and a swimming pool where you can exercise is a big plus in a student residence. Exercise causes the body to release endorphins which trigger positive feelings, and you will definitely need all the positivity you can get to get you through university life.
Areas for socializing
There will be a lot of times when you will be working with fellow students for school projects. And since you’re living away from the family, you will also find yourself spending free time with friends. A discussion room for your group projects and a visitors’ lounge for meeting up with friends are thus among the considerations of a university student looking for a second home.
Yes, you are in university and almost an adult but that does not mean your parents worry less about your safety. A property that promises 24/7 security and actually delivers it is a must.
Another decisive factor in picking a student residence is location. Naturally, you would pick one near your university. It is also most ideal if you are also conveniently near key transport points such as the LRT station and bus stops, convenience stores, a shopping mall and even a medical facility.
Setting the standard for premium university residences, Torre Lorenzo Malate meets all these essentials and more. Another project by Torre Lorenzo Development Corp. (TLDC), the 45-storey student high-rise is ideally located at the heart of Malate in Manila, located in close proximity to schools such as University of the Philippines Manila and St. Paul University Manila, medical institutions Philippine General Hospital, Manila Doctors Hospital and Medical Center Manila as well as shopping malls Robinsons Place Manila and SM Manila.
Located along Malvar Street, Torre Lorenzo Malate will feature a resident lounge, study room, swimming pool, fitness center, meeting room, function room, visitors lounge, sky lounge and discussion rooms. And for the peace of mind of residents and their parents, an RFID system for entry/exit and elevator use will be available in the property. Strategically placed CCTV cameras, 24/7 security, 24/7 emergency hotline and emergency power will also be provided by TLDC.
Future residents can choose from studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units. Thirty six of the 45 floors will be allotted to residential units, with 12 to 21 units per floor.
Torre Lorenzo Malate builds on the strong reputation of its predecessors, Torre Lorenzo1 and 2Torre Lorenzo, creating desirable and relevant amenities especially for university students in the Malate area. With TLDC’s unrivaled property management, every detail is carefully selected to provide utmost comfort and security for its residents at all times.
