Century Properties has begun turning over the Knightsbridge Residences, its British-inspired residential high-rise in Century City, Kalayaan Avenue, Makati.

“As Knightsbridge is completed, its homeowners will see and feel the dedication we have poured into bringing a lifestyle experience that is inspired by the renowned London neighborhood that it is named after,” said Century Properties in a statement.

Such experience is apparent throughout the structure, beginning with the residential units. Known as “pods,” the units have been configured to maximize space and at the same time imbibe the Britannia lifestyle.  During the project’s pre-selling phase, buyers were also offered combinable units, which gave them the option to further expand their chosen living spaces.

The Knightsbridge is infused with high design features, themed interior finishes and signature hypersized amenities, which are convergence and amenity areas that serve as extensions of the residential units.

The 64-story building’s spacious lobby, called the Living Room, has a soaring two-story-high cathedral ceiling from which the chandeliers hang. A wall filled with vertical green walls and rosewood planks complement its Travertine stone-clad flooring, and a Union Jack-themed sitting area beckons at each arriving homeowner.

Residents can also expect to find an above industry-standard line up of amenities, several of which have recently opened for the use of unit owners and their guests.

The development’s gym facilities include top-notch brand treadmills, stationary bikes, machines and free weights as well as a yoga and dance studio.

In Knightsbridge’s dining area are a bar, restaurant and an al fresco dining area where up to 120 persons can be accommodated.

For entertainment and recreation, Knightsbridge has both the traditional and modern options: a gaming area with billiard, foosball and poker tables, a cozy private movie theater and the Arcade room that houses five video game consoles and widescreen TV sets.

Knightsbridge also has a library that has a comfortable reading corner. The area doubles as a business center complete with a computer, printer, scanner and fax machine.

An observatory space on the topmost floor offers a 360-degree view of Makati City, complete with provisions for dining and entertaining guests.

Another design innovation is the Knightsbridge Lantern floors.  Here, eight levels of units with floor-to-ceiling windows transform into sparkling lantern-type glass boxes that become visible from distant areas at night.

Knightsbridge is located within Century City’s 3.4-hectare masterplanned community in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City. This location also affords residents the added convenience of being close to an IT-medical arts and outpatient center – Centuria Medical Makati which will open soon – and the Century City Mall, which will hold its soft opening in February 2014.

The mall will house over a hundred different boutiques, restaurants, clothing stores, a supermarket and a modern cinema.
