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.

More than just a structure that safeguards, One Castilla Place defines a worry-free, easy and comfortably convenient home.

Rhapsody Residences’ living spaces perfect for young families

MANILA, Philippines – Ample space involves more than just extra areas for storage or enough room to accommodate furniture and other living arrangements. For today’s market of young professionals and start-up families, the need for space is more than a physical issue – it has a lot to do with the social and psychological requirements for exclusivity, breathing space, and comfort, without compromising the homeowner’s lifestyle and family values.

Rhapsody Residences, DMCI Homes’ latest project in Muntinlupa City, caters to this need through an upgraded lifestyle that is in harmony with the living requirements of today’s young professionals and growing families. As the industry’s leader in “genuine, resort-inspired daily living”, the triple A builder-developer affirms its commitment to provide the only resort-park family condominium village for modestly-earning young families aspiring for a calmer, relaxed, and unhurried home environment with their children through Rhapsody Residences.

Among its most pronounced advantages is the provision of maximized living areas deemed perfect for young families. This feature includes at least nine types of 2-bedroom unit configurations for an inventory that offers flexibility and diverse options not common among today’s developments.

Unit areas differ in range from 54 to 77 square meters, all efficiently planned to accommodate the different living requirements of residents. The most number of the total 1,186 units available is pegged at 66.5 square meters, or 34% of the entire condo unit inventory, ensuring that Rhapsody Residences will benefit mostly growing families who can thrive in such efficiently-planned home space.

Another particular advantage of Rhapsody Residences for the growing family is the presence of the single-loaded corridors, garden atriums, and scenic elevators, which are standard in every building. This ensures that natural lighting and ventilation are available to all of the residents, promoting a healthier and more natural style of condo living versus other competitors.

The project is designed to attract end-users and upgraders from the surrounding cities of Parañaque, Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, and Pasay, who can benefit from its strategic location. This buyer’s profile is further depicted as having an age range of 30 to 45 years old, with a combined gross monthly household income of P70,000 to P110,000.

Aside from this primary market, Rhapsody Residences also aims to attract homebuyers from the provinces in the South. As working professionals, they need to reside in a half-way house or even primary home that is located near business centers in Metro Manila, hence, they can pursue the move to Rhapsody Residences. Located along East Service Road in Barangay Buli, Muntinlupa City, Rhapsody Residences offers close proximity to commercial and business districts around Alabang, Taguig, and Makati .

Another potential market is the vast OFW segment which is looking for an investment opportunity and/or an upgraded home for their family.

The project’s target markets are depicted as homeowners who are planning to upgrade their lifestyle to the current state of modern condo living. Once they move to Rhapsody Residences, they can still live within their familiar neighbourhood or community that is located is proximate to important destinations.

Sorrel Residences

Sorrel Residences.

Soon in Manila, the resort-inspired Sorrel Residences

IN THE DAYS of limited home options, buyers are constantly in search of value for their hard-earned money. Prime consideration is given to decent living and big breathing spaces that provide relief from cramped city living conditions that most city dwellers are used to. Who wouldn’t want a big home you can look forward to after a long day’s work? At Sorrel Residences, homebuyers are assured of these needs as it opens larger unit offerings versus other comparable competitors which address each buyer’s various spatial needs.

This and a lot more can be had at the 26-storey high Sorrel Residences to be built on Sociego Street near Sta. Mesa, Manila. Where else in Sampaloc can you experience resort living without leaving your homes? The recently acquired DMCI Homes property on Sociego Street in Sta. Mesa, Manila, has everything every developer looks for, so when the country’s premier triple A builder-developer was offered the opportunity to build and develop this prime lot, it didn’t take long before the development process began, and the idea for Sorrel Residences began to take shape. Named after an ornamental tree which symbolizes beauty and elegance, Sorrel Residences equally exudes elegance and beauty as a resort-inspired community in the middle of the metro.

Worry-free travel

The property is bordered by residential developments and upscale houses. However, it is also easily accessible because of its close proximity to the main thoroughfare of Ramon Magsaysay Boulevard, and the V. Mapa station of LRT2 which is a mere 150 meters away from the property. The site is also accessible via other major thoroughfares, such as Aurora Boulevard, Quirino Avenue, Araneta Boulevard, and N. Domingo Street, which links the property to major cities and CBD’s such as Quezon City, Mandaluyong, San Juan, and Makati.

Aside from its proximity to major roadways, its nearness to major establishments and areas of interest such as schools, hospitals, and business centers makes it an ideal abode for its target market who belong to the upwardly mobile professionals and starting families.

Timeless appeal

Once finished, Sorrel Residences will have approximately 592 units available, with bigger cuts than the typical comparable units. There will be 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom units, ranging in size from 38.3 to 77 SQM gross floor area, ensuring that there will be units available to suit the needs of potential buyers. There will be three parking levels and 334 parking slots.

Sorrel Residences takes pride in its modern architecture that has a timeless appeal, and also addresses the tropical climate as a design consideration. There will be generous natural light and air entering the units, courtesy of DMCI Homes’ trademark single-loaded corridors and garden atriums, making every building and every unit a breathable living space.

The planned recreational and functional amenities include areas for socialization, interaction, and health and wellness activities to complement the lifestyle of its future residents. A lap pool and a children’s pool, a lounging pool deck, children’s play area, and a linear park, all available on the ground level of the property, will promote both a healthy lifestyle and social interaction among its residents.

There will also be a number of indoor amenities at Sorrel Residences, including a grand lobby, game area, a fitness gym, a sky lounge, and observation decks situated on the roof deck level of the building, to provide 360 degree views of the scenic cityscapes. A business center will also be provided for convenience, as well as a water station, a laundry station, and a convenience store to fulfill the various needs of its future residents.

DMCI Homes targets young urban families and upcoming professionals due to its close proximity to key areas and the finest places in the metro. Sorrel Residences is nestled in the more quiet and serene side of Sampaloc, Manila, combining the convenience of a good location with the signature peaceful ambience of a DMCI Homes property.

DMCI Homes is the country’s premier triple A builder-developer that brings serviced, themed communities within reach of urban families who aspire to achieve a comfortable, enriching quality of life proximate to their place of interest.
