Imagine transporting a majestic tropical rainforest into the heart of the metropolis. A masterpiece that dedicates an equivalent of two times its total land area to lush greenery, enchanting water features, an abundance of amenities and open space. Conceived to replicate a marvelous symphony of tree canopies with rich dense foliage and planted next to a regenerating body of water. An oasis of serenity and solitude amidst the city’s ever-quickening pace.
Acqua Private Residences follows nature’s blueprint by injecting life into the surrounding landscape resulting in a lush tropical rainforest-infused design that brings nature’s breathtaking water features and flourishing foliage into an urban location.
Designed by award-winning masterplanning firm Broadway Malyan, Acqua is revitalizing an old industrial area—what was once the Noah’s Ark Sugar Refinery— into a bustling center of activity. Six (6) towers lavish you with private uninterrupted views of the dazzling Makati skyscrapers across the bridge, the vibrant city skyline to the North, or the tranquil water down below.
It’s a new concept in condo living. Acqua brings the tropical rainforest into a residential Eden from nature- infused surroundings as well as multiple waterfalls and water-inspired architecture.
The Pebble is Acqua’s central amenity structure and the visual focal point of the entire development. It is a gleaming white, modern interpretation of a smooth river stone with a large cut in front providing an almost window-like vista and three (3) iconic waterfalls on the façade that seemingly flow into the mighty river. It’s the ideal venue where you can lounge, energize and plunge as it features fitness club facilities such as a state-of-the-art total health, wellness and fitness center, a 25-meter lap pool, a lagoon pool, a basketball/tennis court, and juice bar.
At the ground floor of The Pebble, Acqua features the Riverwalk Promenade inspired by Singapore’s Clarke Quay area. Acqua’s residents get to enjoy a delightful stretch of restaurants, bars, cafes and designer stores from day ’til night. Arrive by river ferry or water shuttle from the Makati side, dine by the water, shop in hip young designer stores and enjoy sensational views of Makati, all at the first Riverwalk Promenade in the country.

Straddling the international border between Canada and the US, Niagara Falls remains one of the most photographed waterfalls in the world. It is renowned for its magnificence and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power, managing the balance between form and function. This magnificent aesthetic brings inspiration to the Niagara Tower, the first building set to rise at Acqua Private Residences. The Niagara Tower ascends 42 storeys high with around 400 units facing the Makati, Manila and Mandaluyong skylines.
Situated near Milford Sound in New Zealand’s South Island, the Sutherland Falls were long believed to be the tallest waterfall in New Zealand. Cascading in three (3) soaring levels, it falls directly out of Lake Quill which is in turn fed by several glaciers producing their own flow. Its beauty is seen even from the air or by hiking two miles to the base of the falls from the Milford Track. This grandiose beauty brings inspiration to the Sutherland Tower, the second building set to rise at Acqua Private Residences.
Pouring over a landscape of snow, ice and dramatic rock formations in northeastern Iceland is the most powerful waterfall in all of Europe and easily one of the world’s most beautiful. 100m wide with a drop of 45m down to what looks like a miniaturized version of the Grand Canyon, it’s an awe-inspiring sight to behold and has become the inspiration for Acqua’s third tower, Dettifoss. Rising as the most central of the development’s six (6) buildings, it is one of the most desired choices for the future Acqua resident.
Acqua’s three previous towers are all named after some of the most famous and breathtaking waterfalls in the world. Acqua Livingstone follows this tradition as it is inspired by Africa’s Livingstone Falls, a collection of surging rapids that are a part of the Congo River. But unlike the common vertical waterfall, Livingstone’s 900 foot drop is stretched over a majestic 200 mile cascade. It is interior designed by the iconic Italian fashion house MISSONIHOME and is their first such building in the world.
Located where Brazil and Argentina converge, Iguazu Falls (which in the Guarani language translates to “Big Water”) is the inspiration behind Iguazu Tower. Acqua Iguazu will be the fifth tower to rise in the Acqua Private Residences development, and will be interior designed by the world’s greatest design mind – Philippe Starck.
Soaring 41 storeys into the sky, Novotel Suites Manila brings an international branded hotel and residential experience with exceptional service, world-class amenities, and beautifully designed living spaces within the Acqua master-planned waterfront development just a bridge away from the Makati Central Business District and its many attractions.
Acqua Private Residences is a true riverfront development, located on the regenerating Pasig River in Coronado Street, where Mandaluyong meets Makati.
