Megaworld to Build Another Residential Tower in Makati CBD
The 30-storey ‘The Ellis’ in Salcedo Village will feature ‘first-of-its-kind’ amenities for the young, highly-mobile market
Property giant Megaworld is building another residential condominium tower within the Makati Central Business District.
To be called The Ellis, the 30-storey tower along L.P. Leviste Street in Salcedo Village will be highlighted by a unique, unconventional and contemporary façade with interiors inspired by New York’s industrial designs.
“The Ellis stands out to be Megaworld’s residential masterpiece in the heart of Makati CBD highlighted by design and innovation,” says Eugene Em Lozano, vice president for sales and marketing – Makati CBD, Megaworld.
The tower will have 237 units ranging from studio (24 sqm to 34.5 sqm) and executive studio loft with balcony (64 sqm), executive one-bedroom with balcony (64 sqm to 69 sqm) to two-bedroom with balcony (75 sqm) and executive two-bedroom with balcony (121.5 sqm).
Special units called ‘Link Units’ are also available, which is a combination of either studio and one-bedroom (63.5 sqm) or studio and two-bedroom (103 sqm).
“The concept of the ‘link units’ allows residents to have their living space attached to their working place. For example, the unit owner can live in the one-bedroom unit while the attached studio unit may be converted into an office,” explains Lozano.
The Ellis will feature on its Level 8 various first-of-its-kind amenities in condominium living in Metro Manila.
Among them is the CoLab Spaces, a creative, non-conventional open working space where residents can simply walk in, plug in their laptops and work. This hall, curated to inspire and spark creativity and a sense of community will be provided with complimentary fast-speed Wi-Fi.
There will also be a Town Hall, a contemporary space for casual socials, intimate galas, friendly get-togethers, art exhibits, movies and even music sessions.
Another amenity is the Pause and Play Room, a game room where residents can hang out with friends and family with some indoor games and recreation.
More features of the development include a Fitness Center, as well as Lap and Kiddie Pools with outdoor deck, for al fresco poolside experience with the Makati skyline on the backdrop.
“What we are introducing is something unique, a ‘first-of-its-kind’ residential project catering to the passionate, innovative and ambitious individuals with entrepreneurial spirit. Megaworld came up with these creative and dynamic amenities to respond to the requirements of ‘on-the-go’ residents,” adds Lozano.
Current unit prices at The Ellis reach up to P180,000 per square meter.
To date, Megaworld, along with its subsidiary brand Empire East, has already launched and completed 28 residential and commercial buildings around Makati City, making it one of the biggest property developers in the country’s premiere central business district.
