Federal Land recently launched the second tower of the Grand Midori Ortigas, offering more Filipinos the chance to experience a Zen-inspired sanctuary in the city.
Federal Land tapped into the creativity of world-renowned Tokyo-based architecture firm Tange Associates as the project’s Design Consultant.
The firm is known for combining traditional Japanese artistry with modern perspectives as seen in its work on Yoyogi Gymnasium, St. Mary Cathedral, and the Tokyo Aquatics Center. For The Grand Midori Ortigas, Tange Associates forged the authentic infusion of Japanese design and innovation into the building’s architecture to create a unique living experience that is both elegant and purposeful.
Expression of elegance
The Grand Midori Ortigas features a façade that combines the Japanese tatami with the Filipino “banig” to craft a flowing weave pattern that provides a comforting feel of Filipino home. The façade’s horizontal and vertical louvers also serve as a form of climate control measure to improve air flow and quality as well as a sunshade device. Inside, amenity spaces are inspired by the Japanese concepts ‘wabi-sabi’ which refers to finding beauty in imperfection, and ‘miyabi’ defined by the expression of elegance and refinement, presents a unique living experience for mindful and contemporary urbanites.
The Grand Midori Ortigas offers thoughtfully-designed residential units that make elements flow harmoniously, with light and airy interiors framed by expansive windows. Potential homeowners can choose from a variety of unit types at Tower 2: studio (35.5 to 38sqm), one-bedroom (48 to 64sqm), and two-bedroom (69 to 107sqm) variations. All units are built in consideration of creative and practical space planning to provide homeowners the leeway for personal design and comfort.
Flex suite: a space that adapts to you
The Grand Midori Ortigas presents an array of Flex Suites configured to accommodate distinct needs for urban living. Available at Tower 2, the Flex Suite is a 64sqm one-bedroom unit with a 30sqm multipurpose area—better known as the Flex Space—that can be personalized specific to the homeowner’s current needs and lifestyle.
The Flex Suite comes with a built-in sliding room partition, an invitation to homeowners to carve out a space to pursue their passions. New parents can create a nursery, an artist can curate a studio space or hobby room, health buffs can set up a work out area, or an employee can put up a home office fast and easy.
Zen-inspired indoor and outdoor amenities can be found throughout The Grand Midori Ortigas. Those who wish to engage in an active lifestyle would love the fitness gym, yoga room, exercise lawn, and lap pool. The game room, videoke room, pool lounge, and Jacuzzi are available for downtime after work or school.
There’s a study lounge and a conference room for those working or studying remotely but wish to do it out of their own units from time to time. The young and young at heart will make new friends at the children’s playroom, children’s pool and children’s play area. The Zen garden and landscaped area with lounge make for a perfect escape if you’re yearning for some peace and quiet.
The Grand Midori Ortigas is located along the Exchange Road in Ortigas Center, with up-and-coming infrastructure developments such as the Metro Manila Subway System and Ortigas Greenway Project, providing residents convenient mobility options as they go around the metropolis.
The Grand Midori Ortigas is also near the new BGC-Ortigas Center Link’s Kalayaan Bridge linking Pasig to Bonifacio Global City, efficiently cutting down travel time between both business districts to some 15 minutes.
