Safeguarding your home
LIVING in a country located along the Pacific Ring of Fire, it is crucial that we are ready for sudden natural upheavals. Over the recent years, our neighboring countries have been shaken by earthquakes that brought appalling effects to their infrastructures as well as their people. Here in the Philippines, we experience about 20 earthquakes each day, most of which are too faint for our senses. However, latest studies by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) warn us about a possible trembling that could be too big for us to handle. The event may be brought on by the West Valley Fault.
Frequent movement of the fault, which was formerly known as the Marikina Fault, had been observed. The 21-km fault, which passes through the towns of Rodriguez, Rizal; Quezon City; Marikina; Pasig; Pateros; Taguig; Makati; and Muntinlupa, has been inactive for 200 years, which means that a massive earthquake is highly probable.
With such adversity knocking at our doorstep, we should concern ourselves with ensuring that the structures and edifices around us are ready for this, especially those that house our families.
One Castilla Place, a project by DMCI Homes, was designed to strictly adhere to global standards in order to endure different environmental challenges, in turn giving its residents the peace of mind in knowing that their homes are reliable. According to Engr. Gerry Ancheta, VP for Design and Engineering of DMCI Homes, residents can rest assured that the company offers the highest level of expertise. “Our projects are built using high-quality materials. DMCI Homes creates safe and well-built dwelling spaces for its customers,” said Ancheta.
In addition, the 30-story single-rise condominium will have 100-percent standby emergency power, CCTV system for common areas and major access points into the building, as well as fire- and smoke-detection systems.
Aside from contingency preparedness, One Castilla Place guarantees the appeal and romance of the suburbs within the convenience of the city. It is located near the business hub of Ortigas and close to exclusive schools such as Xavier School, La Sale Greenhills and St. Paul’s College, as well as medical institutions such as St. Luke’s and Cardinal Santos Memorial Hospital. Also, the Greenhills shopping area and foodie havens of Timog and Tomas Morato are just a few minutes from the premier condominium.
Nestled on 5,452 sq m of prime land, One Castilla Place will feature modern-day amenities for residents’ recreational and leisure activities. Kids and the kids-at-heart can play and have fun while taking a dip in the pools. Busy bees can unwind and have some quiet time alone in the tranquil themed gardens. Fitness buffs and the health conscious can hit the gym for a good heart-pumping routine.
When it comes to social gatherings such as family get-togethers and parties, residents need not step out of the place to find a venue as function halls will be available.
One Castilla Place will also offer an entertainment and game room for extracurricular activities. Residents can also chill out and take pleasure in the expansive and unobstructed view from the Sky Park.
To assist residents in achieving and sustaining a worry-free atmosphere in their homes, a professional property management team will always be ready to take care of the community’s needs.
