MANILA, Philippines – The real еstatе developer that brought world-renowned designer brands to Philippine shores, launched such groundbreaking projects as a man-made beach in an urban residence and a rainforest-infused condominium with three majestic waterfalls, is bringing its 26-year heritage of innovation to Metro Manila’s largest city.

Century Properties Group is creating a 4.4-hectare community of healthy pursuits in Quezon City that, like its other visionary projects, is as exciting and as premium at an even more attainable price.

It’s called The Residences at Commonwealth by Century.

“The project name is the company’s stamp of assurance that homeowners will enjoy the same mark of innovation, and the same tradition of life-enhancing residential experiences in this development,” said Century co-chief operating officer Marco Antonio. He added: “Commonwealth by Century seeks to surpass the standards set for residential projects within this category by introducing pioneering amenities and features that will exceed what the market has been accustomed to.

Hence, the development will introduce the “uncommon” to redefine the standards for residential living in Quezon City.

An eight-tower mid-rise development, Commonwealth by Century integrates a world-class design, larger unit cuts with extended balconies, and distinctive, beyond-the-usual amenities that encourage residents to engage in healthy pursuits. “It’s a topnotch package for a premium home that has never been offered before in this part of the metropolis,” Antonio said.

The choice of location also makes a lot of sense, he added. Quezon City represents almost a quarter of Metro Manila’s total population; its vast spaces are perfect for a concept development; it has the second highest average income after Makati and house rental is a significant expense at 25 percent of total spending among its resident families.

For Antonio, the market is ripe for such a product. “We want to capture the local and overseas Filipino market of young professionals, startup families and retirees, who desire independence but also want to be situated near friends and family. They want an accessible location that’s less congested. They also want to be near shopping districts, schools, medical facilities, places of worship, offices and public transportation. You will find all of these in Quezon City.”

World class design

Each of the eight multi-level towers will bear a distinct cranked design to optimize sunlight and allow the circulation of cool air.

As the property is situated on a sloping landscape, the towers’ heights will ascend as the terrain drops. The tallest towers will top off at 22 floors; the lowest, at 11 storys.

Select balconies will have private “floating gardens” that stagger up the buildings’ facades. Within each building, public green scapes will come in the form of Box Gardens, Vertical Gardens and Roof Gardens.

“It should be noted that in our desire to offer experiences that are truly different and rare, we are giving each unit, no matter which cut, an extended balcony so that each resident can fully appreciate the lush setting they will be living in,” Antonio stressed.

Each of the balcony follows a chevron layout that extends the unit owner’s private space and allows them more room to accommodate guests or for simple relaxation.

Beyond the usual clubhouse

Aside from the unique structural design of its buildings, Commonwealth by Century also brings the property developer’s concept of the hyper-amenitized community that Century Properties has become known for.

“It’s not just a question of providing amenities; it’s what people can do with the amenities,” Antonio pointed out. “Here at Commonwealth we took a step back and reflected on what kind of public spaces will truly matter to our residents. We know there is true wealth in self-discovery and self-enrichment, so we introduced brand new amenities that mirror the progression of the individual – from childhood to adulthood – and its energy from meditative to active.”
