Press Release, January 2009
Experience the luxurious lifestyle inspired by New York’s famous upper-East side in one of the prime spots of the Araneta Center: Manhattan Garden City. This exciting venture between Megaworld Corporation and the Araneta Center is the country’s foremost transit-oriented, garden- themed community.
Both of the residential blocks, the Manhattan Parkway Residences and the Manhattan Parkview Residences, are composed of three towers each. Multicolored lights illuminate not just these, but all 20 towers of the picturesque development. Views of Manila Bay and the Araneta Center skyline can be enjoyed from suites with large windows and balconies.
Aside from the executive studio and one bedroom suites, residents are given the choice to combine suites to create roomier living areas and two to three bedroom suites. Multi-level parking, 24/7 security and a backup power generator make your home safe and convenient. All the towers in the area are linked to the 729 meter long garden walkway which leads to the transit stations.
The development’s distinctive aspect is its direct link to the LRT-2 and MRT-3 train stations. There is no other residential condominium that has this extremely advantageous feature. You can reach various parts of the city within minutes, such as the Makati and Ortigas business districts, Quezon City, Manila and Marikina. Also, both the LRT-2 and MRT-3 are connected to the LRT-1 so you can even travel all the way to Paranaque while avoiding the traffic.
The amenities and facilities of the Manhattan Parkview Residences are particularly impressive and wide-ranging. “We have more than 20 different amenities at Manhattan Parkview Residences, the second phase of Manhattan Garden City. All of these provide a different relaxation experience for our residents, from the passive to the very active pastimes,” says Anthony Yu, the President of Megaworld Central Properties Inc.
Whether you want to invigorate your body and mind at the outdoor spa, or manage sudden business needs at the function room and business center, you’re sure to find a specific amenity for your every need at the Parkview Residences. Residents who are into sports will appreciate the basketball and tennis court, complete with bleachers. Youngsters and those who are young at heart are sure to enjoy the game room.
The garden plaza is perfect for a bit of yoga, meditation, or just relaxing with a good book. There is a delightful circular fountain plaza and sculpture water feature, both of which have unique paving patterns. Other places where one can rest and enjoy the peaceful scenery include a cabana with a fabric roof, and an inviting pergola on the trellised canopy walkway. There are also tree-lined sitting areas near the transfer pavilion.
Sun worshippers can get a tan while resting at the pool deck or landscaped sun deck, then cool off at the 20-meter lap pool. Further additions include a shallow water foot bath and palm court. There is also a bubble pool for children, and a water play pool. At the Manhattan Garden City, you can give yourself over to the pleasure and beauty of your surroundings while still staying fit and healthy.
Within the neighborhood there are numerous diversions and malls that are easily accessible. There is the Gateway Mall, Araneta Coliseum, and Shoemart Cubao to name a few. And since there are pocket gardens scattered across the walkways and footbridges, moving from one location to the next is a soothing visual treat. For those with vehicles, there are multi-level parking areas per tower and strategically located entry and exit points to ensure that traffic goes as smoothly as possible.
Yu is enthusiastic about the ongoing progress of this exceptional community. “Even more amenities await residents at the upcoming phases of Manhattan Garden City. They can expect more innovative and much better amenities from the leading residential condominium developer – Megaworld.”
