Alphaland Makati Place

 

 

It’s been a while since I blogged about homes and condos. I used to do it weekly because of my old show Urban Zone. But now I rarely have a chance to feature homes. I’m sure many of you are missing my house tours from UZ. It’s a good thing my friend invited me to check out a new development in Makati. I visited The Residents at Alphaland Makati Place. It is a very unique new development just at the foot of Ayala Avenue, a stone’s throw away from the Makati Central Business District and two minutes away from Makati Medical Center.

Alphaland Makati Place is an integrated urban lifestyle solution, with residential, sports and leisure, and retail necessities all in one complex. There is nothing quite like it in Makati . You could practically stay in the Alphaland Makati Place for days and never have to step out. Everything is there. Alphaland Makati Place is a complete community that will cut down on commuting, save time and energy for its residents, and minimize traffic, all in secure, private surroundings. All units are fully fitted and fully furnished, and come with Home Automation. The entire development is 100% covered by a backup generator.

Alphaland Makati Place was built by the same developer of Balesin Island Club Resort. It consists of three residential towers above a six-storey podium that houses an upscale shopping centre and a membership sports club – The City Club. This isn’t your ordinary sports club. It has state-of-the art exercise facilities and a wellness centre. Ownership of a unit at The Residences will give you the benefit of using 52 amenities in a three-hectare area. Alphaland Makati Place is designed by Wong & Ouyang who also had a hand in designing Hong Kong’s Pacific Place.

I had to take a selfie at Master Bedroom of the units I visited. Sorry for my serious face. That wraparound view!

 

Here is an example of a one-bedroom floor plan:

There are a minimum of five and a maximum of seven units in each floor. Each tower has three passenger elevators and one service elevator. And as part of Alphaland’s excellent property management style, they have a maid service available for P600 per day. And should a resident wish to employ a maid full-time, there is a dormitory for staff available at P4,000 per month.

The bigger unit’s living room is fitted with built in shelves, lots of storage space, and recessed lighting.

Wonderful kitchen. And take note of the extra storage under the bench by the window.

Appliances are built-in and the solid surfaces are seamless. These appliances are all included in the unit, by the way. All you have to do is just move in.

Aegle Wellness Center

By being a member of The City Club, you have access to Aegle Wellness Center. Walking through the halls of Aegle made me feel like I was walking in a white cloud. It was so pristine and immaculate.

The hyperbaric chamber involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube. A hyperbaric chamber can treat decompression sickness caused by scuba diving. Other conditions for hyperbaric oxygen therapy include serious infections, bubbles of air in your blood vessels, and wounds that won’t heal as a result of diabetes or radiation injury.

Alphaland Makati Place is designed from the ground up as an intelligent development, with state-of-the-art building management and security, as well as energy efficient mechanical, electrical, and sanitary systems. The complex will consume far less water and energy than comparable buildings, minimizing carbon emissions and unnecessary costs, while still achieving a high level of comfort. The project is registered under the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) rating system, which administers the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). Makati Place is designed to a Gold level of certification.

In the past decade and a half, we saw a boom in the real estate market in Metro Manila. Much of this was chronicled in Urban Zone. The skyline of Makati, Bonifacio, Ortigas and Manila have changed so much. High rise condominiums and office towers dominate the city centres. And there are still more plans and promises for new condominiums.

When I saw Alphaland Makati Place already completely built with all the amenities and establishments in place, I was impressed. Not only was the place well designed and situated, it had all the amenities I would need. It even houses some international schools in the same building. No need to wait or base decisions on drawings and scale models. Everything is already there. All you have to do is move in.
