Filigree, a luxury real estate brand in the country, adds two plum honors from the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2018 to its roster of industry recognitions: the Best Residential Development of the Philippines Award for The Enclave Alabang, its first horizontal project, and a five-star rating for Best Apartment Philippines Award for Botanika Nature Residences, one of its upscale condominium developments.

These awards are further testaments of Filigree’s unwavering vision to set the standard in luxury real estate in the country. “We’re very honored to be recognized by a prestigious award giving body such as Asia Pacific Property Awards. This further inspires us to take the Filigree brand to even greater heights,” says Kate Ilagan, Filigree head. “We want to continue to live up to Filigree’s promise of redefining luxurious, modern living by embracing distinction.”

Filigree’s The Enclave Alabang is a 13-hectare masterplanned, exclusive, green-oriented village in the South. Its sought-after address, on top of its luxurious, tropical modern design that complements its verdant expanse, and the exacting craftmanship employed are but some of the attributes that led to its recognition.

Botanika Nature Residences, meanwhile, is a mid-rise, low-density condominium complex comprised of three towers with garden-inspired amenities in the most quiet portion of Filinvest City, Alabang. Its commitment to sustainable, green living—further cemented by its three-star BERDE rating for design from the Philippine Green Building Council—its iconic leaf-shaped structure, as well as its first-class amenities make it truly best in the market.

Known as the largest, most prestigious program throughout the region, the recently concluded Asia Pacific Property Awards 2018 was held in Bangkok, Thailand. Participating properties are judged by an independent panel of 80 industry experts, focusing on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability.

The top winners in each region will automatically be entered into the overall international awards, culminating in a glittering awards ceremony to be held at the Savoy Hotel, London in December 2018.


A more fun, active lifestyle at Filinvest City’s Spectrum Linear Park

Filinvest City, the premier garden central business district in the Metro South, recently opened two other sections of its Spectrum Linear Park, a foliage-canopied walkway that spans across the north and south ends of the township, as it further promotes a more fun, active lifestyle.

Since its opening last year, Filinvest City’s Spectrum Linear Park has been drawing a steady stream of people who enjoy its close to one-kilometer span. Now accessible via vehicles, this span is accentuated by tree-lined, landscaped pathways, lighted seating areas, and stimulating outdoor art installations. To make it more enjoyable for employees, residents, and guests, a free Wi-Fi access powered by Smart Communications can now be experienced at the park.

Whereas one part of the park is more linear and traditional in design—the area being nearest to the office blocks—the new portion is envisioned to be more playful, serving as transition from the business side of the development to its softer, garden side. Another section, meanwhile, presents fewer hardscapes—that is, walkways and path pavers—and offers more foliage, trees, and greenery for a truly relaxing environment. This then transitions to the soon-to-be-constructed Creekside Park, which boasts of a ‘living creek’ on top of a thriving bird habitat.

With all these eco-centric innovations, the Spectrum Linear Park will serve as a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of city living—a place where people can come together, take a break, enjoy outdoor activities, and have a healthy dose of nature while in the metro. This also proves that a balanced urban masterplan, as espoused by Filinvest City where all the components of a thriving township is complimented by open spaces and pedestrian-friendly features likewide sidewalks and bike lanes, is possible.

“A key element in our plan is the enhancement of existing open spaces into functional ones like parks. It is through this that we aim to provide city dwellers a smarter, more sustainable township,” relates Filinvest Alabang, Inc. senior vice president for townships Don S. Ubaldo. “While we already have all the components of a thriving community, wein Filinvest City still believe that lush, open spaces are a kind of luxury that will continue to attract locators and investors.”

The Filinvest Group, backed by its six decades of industry experience, continuously proves to be a progressive urban development, one that effectively fuses the needs of people, nature, and commerce.  It is no wonder then that many have chosen to call Filinvest City their home.
