THE MAGNOLIA RESIDENCES:
Reclaiming Those Sweet Bygone Days
June 19, 2009
MANILA - It has been said that memory-that mental ability to store, retain and recall information-is a wonderful thing. In everyday life, it is that place, where we retreat to for all the things that make us feel good... about ourselves, about the people near and dear to our hearts, about this oftentime crazy world in which we live.
It is on the wings of precious memories that Robinsons Land Corp. is furthering its solid reputation as one of the country's premiere developers of mixed-use properties, office buildings, residential condominiums, as well as land and residential housing developments. To rise soon in quaint New Manila, Quezon City, is The Magnolia Residences, the company's latest high-rise, mixed-use development that promises to not only provide a lovely refuge from urban life's hurly-burly without ever having to leave the city, but also stir fond feelings about returning to what may have very well been second home to many individuals.
After all, the four-tower Magnolia Residences will rise where once stood the old Magnolia Ice Cream House, the scene of many lovely moments of post-Sunday mass familial bonding over ice cream floats and yummy cobblers; of fun times with friends after a busy day at school; of important occasions such as birthdays and graduations and reunions that deserved only the sweetest treats that the city can offer.
With The Magnolia Residences, Robinsons Land is providing families and individuals another beautiful platform on which to create more memories to fondly look back on, new ones that will be no less life-affirming. "This new vertical residential development will greatly appeal to young couples and start-up families who have always made Quezon City their home, and are looking to either upgrade from their current rental or establish their own home after living with their parents," says Robinsons Land senior vice president for sales and marketing Raoul E. Littaua.
And there is much that the future homeowner will find highly appealing, not the least of which is the fact that the residences are part of the master-planned Magnolia Town Square, envisioned to be a self-contained development with a commercial component, specifically a specialty mall, to addresses the lifestyle needs and interests of the residents. Beyond the obvious conveniences in this mixed-use approach to the development, the residential component itself offers plenty of features that will delight the market, including swimming pools for children and adults, Zen gardens, jogging paths, game rooms, multi-purpose rooms, children's indoor and outdoor playgrounds, library and fitness centers, among others.
"Of course, another strength of Magnolia Residences is its location," adds Littaua. "It is in a strategic spot in Quezon City, as it provides easy access to various institutions like schools and hospitals, along with key urban hubs such as Makati, Ortigas and Cubao, as well as the major modes of transportation."
The unit mix of The Magnolia Residences includes one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and executive two- and three-bedroom configurations. The one-bedroom units range from 36 to 38.10 sqm, the two-bedroom units go from 57.15 to 71.10 sqm, while the executive two-bedroom class range from 72.90 to 90.15 sqm and the three-bedroom, from 108.10 to 114.60 sqm. Each unit will have provisions for individual electric and water meters, cable TV line, telephone line, and electrical power for owner-supplied window-type air-conditioners, while some two- and three-bedroom units will have balconies for enchanting moments in the after-hours or the early mornings, plus a utility room with a toilet.
Needless to say, however inviting all these features are of The Magnolia Residences, what potential homeowners will find ultimately most appealing is Robinsons Land's excellent reputation as a real-estate developer. "Not only does Robinsons Land have a solid track record in terms of on-time delivery, workmanship, architectural integrity and use of high-quality and high-standard materials, but it also has a long history of building the finest master-planned communities," says Littaua. Among the company's current mixed-used developments are Galleria Regency in Ortigas, Otis 888 Residences and Adriatico Residences in Manila, Gateway Residences in Mandaluyong, and Woodsville Viverde Mansions in Parañaque, all of which either have sold-out or have only a few units left that haven't been snapped up by the market.
No doubt, with its excellent features and provisions, and the name of Robinsons Land Corp. behind it, The Magnolia Residences will soon become the home of many families eager to add more to the fond memories they have of the precious spot in New Manila.
