Resort vibe fills The Amaryllis to the top
Entering a DMCI Homes residential condominium community is like entering a resort as swimming pools surrounded by gardens and trees are standard amenities in such exclusive village. The scene of young and old swimmers splashing across the pool on a hot summer day even more make the likes of The Amaryllis in New Manila, Quezon City a rare home-in-a-resort within the city.
From the poolside cabanas and sun loungers, The Amaryllis’ resort vibe extends to the lounge, hotel-like lobby and every floor and unit in the 22-storey upscale, residential condominium tower at the corner of E. Rodriguez Sr. Avenue and 12th Street. Garden atriums, single-loaded corridors and breezeways bring in natural air and light inside the building. The Sky Lounge even has the “chic resort” look.
If the pool complex play up the tropical paradise spirit downstairs, the Sky Lounge’s simple yet elegant finishes and furniture pieces give The Amaryllis residents a luxe escape from the urban jungle, according to Jen Padrigo, DMCI Homes interior designer.
“Wooden elements, gauzy curtains and tropical plants plus splendid views of the New Manila skyline bring in the feel of a resort while polished stone, metal and glass keep it modern,” says Padrigo of the Sky Lounge design. “A clean and neutral color palette accented with greens and combined with ambient/mood lighting enhances the overall cozy and sophisticated feel of the space.”
With couches that can fit groups and armchairs suited for intimate conversation, the Sky Lounge is a virtual extension of the living room. Residents can entertain their guests or invite friends over for a snack or coffee there. It can even be an enjoyable alternative to the bars and restaurants along Tomas Morato Avenue and Timog Avenue below. One can have privacy and quiet to read a book, surf the net, study or just sit comfortably while enjoying the magnificent views of the cityscape. The whole venue can also be reserved by residents for family and social events.
Outside the Sky Lounge, date palms and Kalachuchi trees with its white flowers replicate the ground floor landscape on the open roof deck for a consistent resort feel.
The Amaryllis promises low-density living with only 450 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom units in cuts ranging from 55 to 105.5 square meters. The sizes make them ideal homes for start-up families. Each unit has a balcony and every unit owner can have a parking slot at the four-level basement parking.
Other resort-like amenities, include a multi-purpose hall and fitness gym. Additional facilities that make living at The Amaryllis more convenient and worry-free are three (3) high speed elevators, individual mailboxes, a laundry station, 100% back up stand-by power generator, and overhead water tank, water station, and property management office.
Privacy, exclusivity and security are provided through a gated entrance, electrified perimeter fence, 24-hour roving security guards and provision for CCTV cameras. Safety features are fire alarm and fire hose cabinets along corridors, and fire exit in both wings of the L-shaped tower.
Schools, commercial establishments, offices, hospitals and churches are near The Amaryllis. Major roads around the development also make it very accessible to public transportation.
