Century Properties’ 72-storey Gramercy Residences ready for occupancy
By Leslie D. Venzon
MANILA, March 4 (PNA) –- Property developer Century Properties Group Inc. has commenced the turnover of the 72-storey Gramercy Residences, the first condominium in the company’s flagship Makati development called Century City.
Considered as one of the tallest buildings in the Philippines, the Century City condominium was pre-sold at a record pace of two years to local end-users, Filipino professionals employed overseas and local and foreign investors.
The 1,432-unit development project was launched in 2007 and was completed in 2012. It has six basement floors and has a gross floor area of 121,595 square meters.
In a statement, John Victor R. Antonio, Century Properties Chief Operating Officer, attributed the success of the residential tower to its distinctive and top-notch offering as “the first fully-furnished, fully-serviced and hyper-amenitized condominium in the Philippines.”
“The Gramercy Residences belongs to a new breed of residential high-rises,” Antonio said. “In the past, a condominium was considered upscale or luxurious for its physical qualities —architecture, material specifications, furnishings. When we introduced Gramercy five years ago,we thought of raising the bar by introducing new features, amenities and hotel-style service that will further enhance the residential experience.”
On top of basic condominium amenities, the New York-inspired tower will open very soon the SkyPark amenity floors, which are located halfway up the building.
The SkyPark facilities include swimming pools, gyms, a day care center, the Director’s Club THX theater, residents’ lounge, spa, sundeck, a high-tech game room and a restaurant-café.
In the second half of 2013, Century will open the 71st floor of Gramercy with a signature sky lounge resto-bar, an attraction that will be open to the public and accessible through a different entrance in the building.
“This will be the highest restaurant, lounge and outdoor observatory in the entire country, and will put Gramercy in the same league as some of the tallest viewing galleries in the world,” Antonio said. (PNA)
