Avida Towers Intima
An exclusive abode in historic Paco
By Earl D.C. Bracamonte
Avida Towers Intima is set to rise in Manila’s Paco district; a place of historic significance at the heart of the nation’s capital. Located along Quirino Avenue Extension, the edifice will offer unmatched accessibility and convenience to its residents, as it is centrally located near places of work, schooling, and leisure. It is ideal for both individuals and families who are seeking the perfect home in the crossroads of the metro, and in the middle of places that matter the most.
With Paco district in close proximity to major central business districts (CBDs) like Makati and Quezon City, future residents of Intima will find themselves in an advantageous position with easy access to key cities through major thoroughfares within their midst. Also within the area are various business centers, learning institutions, hotels, dining places and historical attractions such as the Paco Park, the Tokayama Statue and the Paco Church.
“We bring a modern flavor to Paco by mixing into the traditional look of the area. Intima will be a space to unwind from one’s busy work life and a place for your family to grow; plus the exclusivity that homeowners deserve with a very limited number of units. It would be one of the few high-rises in the heart of Paco. This project simply sustains the momentum of a fast demand from a very strong market sector. The lone tower edifice will have 29 floors with three for parking; allotting 40 percent for commercial concessions. The commercial components will all be housed in the ground floor right across schools and the church. Our studios are sized at 22 sq. m (P1.7M) while the two-bedroom units will have a floor space of 61 sq. m (P5.5M). The one-bedroom units will be priced at P3.1M.
“The project will hopefully be completed by Sept of 2015 and the turnover begins by the last quarter that year. We’ll give a fresh look to a place that means so much to its local residents. The northern side will have a view of Makati City’s lights while the northern side will have a view of the iconic Manila Bay sunset,” declared project development manager Ryan Ybanez.
With accessibility as a given, the real charm of Intima lies in the design and concept behind it. The project is unique from other Avida condominium developments in that it offers only a single tower within a master-planned community; assuring that it keeps to its name as being intimate and exclusive. “We are aware of our consumers’ need for a peaceful retreat, especially in such a hub like Paco. As such, we’ve decided to offer a single tower project, without sacrificing any features that clients equate with the Avida brand,” stated the project strategic management head, Dez Cruz.
Apart from serving as a peaceful home in the middle of the city, Intima within itself offers an added oasis for residents with the 4th podium level reserved for a full roster of amenities. It holds the adult and kiddie pools, lawn and play areas, a clubhouse, jogging paths and lounge deck. A viewing patio at the rooftop is an added amenity, giving residents a birds-eye view of Makati and Manila skylines, as well as the picturesque Manila Bay towards the south.
The project also emphasizes safety as the key to an intimate lifestyle. It will have 24/7 security with added measures like CCTV monitoring in and around the lobby areas. Not to mention it being located right beside the barangay hall office.
Like all other Avida properties, Intima also has the “five condo must-haves,” standards that assure future homeowners of the same quality enjoyed by other Avida property residents. Apart from having only 747 units for more privacy, the project has design features that allow for natural lighting and ventilation, practical amenities, emergency power not just in common areas but within each unit, and last but not least, flexible payment terms.
Assuring the top-notch quality of the development and the longevity of the residents’ investment, Ayala Property Management Corp. (APMC) will handle the site’s property maintenance and management. Leasing Services by Avida (LSA), on the other hand, will help investors reap profit from their purchase by having their respective properties rented out to qualified parties that have been thoroughly screened.
Prospective buyers can choose from studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom spaces. Other features to look forward to include four elevator units servicing all floors, and three levels of podium parking. “We are proud of all Avida projects because they carry what we believe are necessary features and amenities that are important to modern-day living. But with Intima, you get the added bonus of exclusivity and history because of the project’s location and single tower feature. Intimate, modern and enclosed within the walls of history – now that’s a combination we seldom encounter,” Cruz enthused.
