There is something about water that attracts us in a way that enhances our well-being. Understanding the regenerative effects of water in an urban setting, Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) is building a twin-tower residential condominium that’s a stone’s throw from Manila Bay.
With its North Tower coming in 2018, The Radiance Manila Bay will offer its residents an unparalleled lifestyle and experience. The condos not only maximize the view of the famous sunset but also provide water features that soothe the senses. Moreover, its location in Roxas Boulevard is at the cultural heartland of Manila.
“This project is unique in our portfolio. While most of our residential towers are at the central business districts, The Radiance Manila Bay is situated outside of it. Still, it’s just across the Cultural Center of the Philippines complex and is accessible to other cultural establishments,” says Mybelle GoBio, senior vice president for Robinsons Residences, the brand for quality projects.
“If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle, and fully enjoy wellness and arts-related recreation, this is the perfect home for you.” GoBio adds that the environment enriches the soul because of its proximity to cultural landmarks. The Radiance is near the Metropolitan Museum, Central Bank of the Philippines, Museo Pambata, institutional museums and galleries in Pasay, De La Salle University, St. Scholastica’s, Philippine Women’s University, College of Saint Benilde, School of Design and Arts, Bangko Sentral, the Finance Center, historic Intramuros, and popular mixed-used complexes in Manila and in the reclaimed areas by the bay.
Moreover, the location is also near Makati, the historic Ermita and Malate districts, the airports and the Coastal Road to Cavite.
Architect Albert Yu designed the 1,076 unit condominium complex to enhance the health and comfort of its residents. Each unit is built with generously sized windows and the hallways provide cross-ventilation to allow maximized air flow and natural light. Floor density is also lower compared with other residential condos.
Its closeness to Manila Bay is believed to bring prosperity. For health benefits, the minerals in the sea air reduce stress and boost mood levels. Within the development is an Olympic-size swimming pool that opens to the view of Manila Bay. The water elements within and surrounding the Radiance Manila Bay with its extensive amenities are set to provide total relaxation to its inhabitants – truly, an oasis in the heart of the Metro.
Aside from the standard amenities, its most distinctive facilities are the private movie theatre and the videoke room. The twin towers will also include a four-story parking podium and three floors for retail.
Residents will be satisfied with the comfortable unit sizes. “The cuts are generous compared with the competition. Our minimum size for a 36 sqm one-bedroom unit is affordable. You can get one as low as P4.3 million,” says GoBio.
The Ring Rob digital concierge facility will make life easier for the residents. “It’s new to our Manila portfolio. You can download the app or visit the website and request for food deliveries, housekeeping, car maintenance or even have a nurse take your blood pressure,” says GoBio.
The condos are pocket-friendly with plans for lower monthly amortizations. With no down payment, you can pay as low as P17,400 a month for 47 months. Then, the developer can connect you with a bank for a loan that will pay for the balance.
“We realized that the Manila market could still be served. So we are tapping businessmen, foreigners and people who love arts,” says GoBio.
