ORTIGAS Central Business District (CBD) will soon boast of a mixed-use residential and commercial enclave similar to other booming business centers in the metropolis.
With the current modes of property developments in the metropolis and other highly urbanized centers in the country, Ortigas CBD which is composed largely of office buildings that crowd most of its areas, a mixed used development is a welcome variation.
Senior vice president for Robinsons Residences and Robinsons Luxuria Mybelle Aragon-Gobio explains, “It started out as a twin-tower project. We took advantage of the site by buying the adjacent property and turned it into a four-tower enclave with a common podium for shared amenities and retail. Residents will now have the comfort and convenience of the spacious amenities and gardens around the building which make the total environment even more attractive.”
The Sapphire Bloc, four-tower residential development that will occupy an entire expanse of land is a cross between a hip and urban commune and efficient city living. By size alone, it will stand out
It will rise on over 8,400 sqm. of prime property. Bound by Sapphire, Garnet, and Onyx streets, it also allows the inhabitants to walk or bike to the different commercial establishments in the vicinity.
“We’ve designed the units with bigger windows and bathrooms for better ventilation and comfort. All the amenities are also strategically placed within the entire development, so that owners can feel comfortable and appreciate a spacious open plan. The units are flexible enough to be easily combined with other units,” Gobio said.
Moreover, The Sapphire Bloc residents will be entitled to various lifestyle perks and privileges such as Ring Rob, a virtual concierge that provides housekeeping, laundry, business center and personal assistance for added convenience. Add to this, is an RLC Lifestyle Card which entitles qualified residents to various perks and discounts in all partner establishments.
