Illumina Residences primed for RFO market

Illumina Residences Manila stands apart from the rest of the structures in the community located along V. Mapa and P. Sanchez streets in Sta. Mesa. It is the only high-rise structure that’s towering at 32–storey ensuring that future homeowners will be able to enjoy an unobstructed view of downtown Manila no matter the time of the day. The building was ready for occupancy since last April 2011, making it a top choice for young families who are looking for a ready-to-move in property.

With the project almost 90%  as of June 2012, the remaining available units also compliment the urban lifestyle of Illumina Residences Manila. Offered are two-bedroom and three-bedroom units with gross floor areas of approximately 57 sqm to 101.50 sqm. These generous unit cuts are made with the start-up or growing families in mind. A new parking building has been constructed to further serve the needs of these families by satisfying the parking demands in the project. The new 3-level steel carpark structure has 82 units; 66 of which are for sale to future homeowners.

Aside from the height, the simple, yet highly-modern façade of the building creates a stunning skyline within the neighborhood. Illumina Residences Manila lights up beautifully at night, courtesy of its unique blue Rope Lights and Wall Washouts which create an interesting outline when seen from afar. A closer look of the building and one is sure to be awed by the pretty glow it casts – truly a modern touch to the otherwise minimalist atmosphere of the new condominium. Add to that, the driveway is strategically lit-up to welcome homeowners to a modern living environment.

This modernity is mimicked into the Grand drop-off area and sophisticated lobby that’s manned by an able concierge. The set-up is a prelude to the vacation lifestyle that’s currently being promoted in this new development. Illumina Residences Manila aims to provide a home setting that will remind one of a relaxing stay at a favorite hotel or resort.

Aside from the tastefully designed lobby, a lounge area and function hall that’s visible on the ground floor also imbibes the metropolitan atmosphere of the whole development.

Small home tasks such as laundry and garbage disposals are not a problem with available facilities and services. A Property Management Office will also take charge of building upkeep and 24 hour security for one’s peace of mind. Add to that are other conveniences such as management of a convenience store and water refilling station, move-in assistance for future residents, taxi call-in service, utilities application and payment assistance.

And since it’s from DMCI Homes, one will be able to enjoy the developer’s pioneer single-loaded hallway design: homes open to a landscaped atrium instead of a neighbor’s door, and ensuring natural illumination and free-flowing air – cutting on energy wastage.

A resort lifestyle won’t be complete without state-of-the-art amenities that offer choices even for the most discerning homeowners. At the ground level, residents can take a cool dip in the swimming pool, or play games with the neighbors at the multi-purpose play court. There is also a fitness gym, featuring the latest fitness equipment and exercise sets and dance area that enhance workout routines. At the podium level are function areas where residents can hold large gathering of families and friends during special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries or family reunions. Friends and family can also enjoy fun times together at the deck gardens that offer a piece of nature.

But the most outstanding amenity is the Sky Lounge which doubles as a function hall. Located at the penthouse level of the building, the Sky Lounge has a spectacular view of the city. And since Illumina Residences Manila is the only high-rise project within blocks, one is sure to enjoy the unobstructed vista of the play of lights cast by the sun and the sky.

Illumina Residences Manila is within close proximity to roads leading to major districts like Ortigas and Makati. Public transportation that can easily bring one to exclusive schools, medical institutions and lifestyle centers are also within easy reach.
