Acqua Private Residences, the Philippines’ first residential Eden, celebrated the summer of 2013 by partying Brazilian style at the property’s showroom grounds in Mandaluyong City.
Acqua Carnaval Brasil, hosted by developer Century Properties, was a spectacle with no less than the Filipino samba school Imperatriz Filipinenze unleashing a truly pulsating sonic experience. Once the drums roared and filled Acqua’s spacious grounds, the guests were on their feet, joining in the revelry to celebrate South America’s most festive country.
The group’s members came out clad in full Mardi Gras regalia, much to the delight of every guest who had a camera on hand. Think bikinis, headdresses and capes in bold and bright colors. Delicious cocktails and food inspired by Brazil’s vibrant culture and lifestyle also overflowed.
The guests got to enjoy these amid a setting that pays tribute to a body of water located on the border of Argentina and Brazil, the majestic Iguazu Falls, after which Acqua’s latest tower was named.
“Brazil is home to some of the world’s most beautiful coastlines, such as the ones in Rio, Sao Paulo and Bahia. The people of Brazil celebrate life by the water, and remarkably, a green consciousness amidst very urban surroundings. It is in fact one of our inspirations when we envisioned creating the Philippines’ first residential Eden, the Acqua Private Residences,” Century Properties co-chief operating officer and Acqua project head Marco Antonio told the guests.
To promote a summer of wellness and beauty to all the guests, event sponsors Zen Institute and I Go Beyond Yoga gave generous rewards through raffles of gift certificates. A medical spa, the Zen Institute gave away thousands worth of treatments in its Quezon City and Bonifacio Global City branches, while I Go Beyond Yoga raffled off free yoga sessions for its Quezon City and Bonifacio High Street branches.
Acqua turned up the heat notches higher that evening by inviting the country’s hottest male celebrity and Century Properties’ brand ambassador Piolo Pascial to share his personal experience as a property owner and investor.
“Piolo is one of the first endorsers of the Acqua project. He is an award-winning actor, a recording artist, a tri-athlete and a philanthropist. He is an inspiring personality who truly embodies the Acqua lifestyle. He is a Century homeowner and will be a future neighbor to those who will make Acqua their address of choice,” Antonio said of Piolo.
Already a proud owner of a unit at the Gramercy Residences, his first Century home, Piolo said he is among the many who got captivated by Acqua’s nature-centered lifestyle. This made him add Acqua to his list of property investments.
“The water element of Acqua is very enticing. As Manila is a concrete jungle, it’s better to have a place where you can relax. And that’s what Century Properties will provide you. If you’re so used to living in a place that is cramped and crowded, then get an Acqua Private Residence unit because it is offering you not just a home but a vacation home,” Piolo said.
Acqua buyers that night also got the added bonus of a certificate welcoming them into the community. They also had the opportunity to spend some time to chat with and share their experiences as property buyers with the actor celebrity.
Acqua Private Residences is a premium waterfront development with six condominium towers, a retail strip, and a country club by the water called the Pebble. The Pebble has four levels and 3,000 square meters of facilities for fitness, recreation, relaxation and wellness.
“This development is our strong expression of supporting the regeneration of the historic Pasig River with a beautiful community development that celebrates Mother Nature. As you will see in its master plan, we had also set out to build Acqua as a rainforest-infused vertical village — filling it with water and greenery so you can enjoy nature in the middle of the urban jungle,” Antonio shared.
Since its launch in 2011, Acqua Private Residences has successfully sold majority of the units in its first four towers: The Niagara, Sutherland, Dettifoss and the fourth tower, Livingstone, which is interior-designed by the famous Italian luxury brand Missoni Home.
The fifth tower is Acqua Iguazu yoo inspired by Starck, which is 56 storeys. A branded residential tower, its amenities, including The Cielo skydeck, are interior-designed by the international firm yoo, founded by John Hitchcox and Philippe Starck.
