A smart home with a view within the rising Entertainment City
From the fabled sunset of Manila Bay and the booming Entertainment City, property giant Megaworld is building a community where one can enjoy the best of leisure, entertainment, and business all in one address.
The sprawling Westside City, Megaworld’s 31-hectare township in Parañaque City, is shaping up to be the urban paradise city dwellers have been looking forward to. Surrounded by the fast-paced developments inside this township is what is deemed to be the Pearl of Westside City: South Beach Place.
Designed by award-winning architectural firm Casas Architects, the 20-story development is inspired by the exciting South Beach neighborhood in Miami, Florida. With its unique style, understated elegance, and sophistication, the condo development promises to make an ideal home especially for those who crave for convenience, accessibility, and the dynamism of a Megaworld community.
Highlighting the value of convenience is the smart home technology available in South Beach Place, which enables unit owners to easily control lights and appliances remotely or via a smartphone app.
Offering a total of 582 units, would-be residents of South Beach Place can choose from Studio (up to 41.5 square meters), One-bedroom (up to 61.5 square meters), Two-bedroom (up to 83 square meters) and Three-bedroom (up to 144.5 square meters). The option to combine units is also available with free interior design consultation. Residents can also enjoy a spectacular view of the dazzling Manila Bay sunset and the Metro Manila skyline seen through the balconies of their units.
With a line of commercial and retail spaces to open on the ground floor level in the near future, residents will be welcomed at the condominium’s grand lobby. They can also enjoy easy access to the soon-to-rise Westside City Mall via a footbridge, as well as the Westside City Resorts World complex, the second Resorts World development in the country.
Amenities will be hosted on the fifth floor where residents can also enjoy one of the five skygardens in South Beach Place. Designed to make for a soothing stay, other skygardens will also be located on the 8th, 11th, 15th, and 18th floors, respectively.
Finding a family haven in modern Manila
According to Lamudi Philippines, the city of Manila recently jumped 29 places up in Mercer’s 2019 Cost of Living Survey, taking the 109th spot out of 210 locations worldwide among the most expensive cities for expatriates.
This, coupled with the fact that the city still holds important pieces of the country’s culture and history, only strengthens Manila’s position as an ideal place to build a home in. With the multifaceted characteristics of the city, it’s hard to deny that the city remains a must-considered location when looking for a property investment.
