When buying a property, people nowadays want more than a roof over their heads. Aside from having a beautiful place to call home, Filipinos are becoming more practical and prefer a place that will not only provide a pleasing place to live in, but a property that suits a fast paced lifestyle and can potentially be a rewarding investment.
Beyond pleasing aesthetics of Dutch-inspired architecture and well planned amenities, Monarch Parksuites of luxury property developer Anchor Land Holdings, Inc. is a person’s best bet for a great investment. Sitting in the middle of the country’s newest tourism and entertainment capital, the development promises good returns and puts the residents at the heart of a booming commercial district.
Situated right at the center of the Bay City, Monarch Parksuites allows its residents to be within mere walking distance to the towering establishments of PAGCOR Entertainment City and the SM Mall of Asia Complex.
The PAGCOR Entertainment City is expected to play a vital role in redefining the reputation of Metro Manila in the global arena, making the Philippines a premiere tourism destination this part of the world. Along with hundreds of restaurants, landmark shops, and designer stores, four world-class integrated hotel-casino and resort complexes will rise in the district.
The first to open to the public was Solaire Resort and Casino which officially began operations in March 2013. It is the $1.2 billion flagship endeavor of Bloomberry Resorts and Hotels, Inc., headed by maritime port magnate Enrique Razon, Jr.
Tapping the world-class brand of City of Dreams in Macau, City of Dreams Manila, a $1.3 billion project by Melco Crown Resort Corporation and Henry Sy's Belle Corporation, is scheduled to open in 2014.
Scheduled to open in 2015 is Manila Bay Resorts, a $2 billion project by Tiger Resort, Leisure and Entertainment, Inc.
Resorts World Bayshore by Travellers International is a partnership between Andrew Tan’s Alliance Global group, Inc. and Genting Hong Kong, Ltd. This $1.1 billion project will rise on a lot area covering 31 hectares and will be launched in 2016, the last to open among the four licensees.
Indeed, the Entertainment City is the country's most ambitious tourism project and will soon be the Philippines’ strongest commercial district. Around 250,000 people will be working within the area in the next five years, and about 10% of that number will be foreign nationals.
The SM Mall of Asia Complex, on the other hand, is a 407,000 square-meter mall that raised the standards of shopping, leisure, and entertainment in the Philippines.
Inside, one can find convention halls such as the SMX Convention Center and Mall of Asia Arena. Several office buildings can also be found such as the One and Two E-Com Offices, the A Place Corporate Office, K Line Corporate Office, and the SM Group Corporate Offices.
And if being at the center of activity and the city’s bright lights is not your cup of tea, you can opt to stay within the chill and calm surroundings of Aseana City where the development is located. Though situated very near the hustle and bustle, it maintains a fully integrated green city with many open lawns, jogging tracks, and spectacular views of Manila Bay and its magnificent sunset. Carefully zoned to provide services and products to fit all lifestyles, it houses reputable institutions like the Department of Foreign Affairs, the soon-to-rise Embassy of Qatar and the ultra-modern Marina & Yacht Club.
In a press release late last year, Aseana announced that it will offer smart city services to locators and residents of Aseana City beginning in 2014. A pioneering concept, the first phase of the project will focus on public security and safety services that make use of enhanced CCTV devices and license plate detectors.
Another prime attraction to the area is its accessibility. Monarch Parksuites is easily reached from any place in Metro Manila via major thoroughfares, metro rails, and transportation terminals. It is also near the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and the Makati central business district.
Inside, Monarch Parksuites is teeming with facilities and amenities that compete with the excitement of its location. Its amenities cover an area of over 8,000 square meters. It boasts of an Olympic-sized pool, a gourmet dining room, media room, gym, billiards room, and reading room. Outdoors, it has a tennis court, basketball court, landscaped parterre, sunken garden, barbecue deck, and children’s play area.
To up the ante even more, Anchor Land helps its customers get the most out of their investment by providing support activities before, during, and after purchasing a condo unit.
“When customers talk, we listen, and we don’t stop servicing our clients after they’ve purchased a unit,” says Anchor Land President Elizabeth Ventura. “From sourcing out prospective tenants to handling maintenance concerns and housekeeping, we make sure that we attend to the needs of our clients efficiently. Our highly-trained employees are dedicated to providing the best service to our customers,” she added.
Taking client servicing to a whole new level, Anchor Land has recently launched Anchor 100, a group of client servicing experts whose main duty is to keep clients happy and to provide a wide array of services that enhance the value of their investments. These include legal documentation, finding and screening tenants, rent collection, and maintenance of units. Anchor 100 was created to fully embody and carry out Anchor Land's 100% commitment to its clients.
