To last for more than two decades is a testament to greatness. Unparalleled to this day, Megaworld’s “township” is a concept made real by only the most innovative visionaries. Established in 1999, Eastwood City has changed much over the years, adapting to the ebb and flow of the real estate industry. Even in the midst of the financial crisis of the ‘90s, its first market came in the form of early investors and the BPO workforce. Now, Eastwood is home to around 25,000 residents in its 19 residential towers and about 70,000 employees from different tenant companies, evidence of its relevance in the field of property development.
From the beginning, the evolution of the market saw a healthy integration of life work-and-play balance. Eastwood City is no stranger to those seeking this type of lifestyle. With everything within arm’s length, complete lifestyle needs can be indulgently fulfilled, within the security and exclusivity that has come to be guaranteed in Eastwood.
Another upgrade in the township, as if to save the best for last, Megaworld unravels the new One Eastwood Avenue, a two-tower condominium meant for the opulent and cosmopolitan. Inspired by the ‘Manhattan Skyline,” the project’s architecture serves as an iconic landmark for the town. Strategically placed at the threshold of the town, its curved glass exterior and contemporary facade welcome patrons into Eastwood City with a fresh and updated look and adding a wow factor to the old haunt. With 52-floors, its Tower 2 will be the tallest residential building in the development.
Upon entering One Eastwood Avenue’s, one is ls greeted by bright and warm hues of polished stone. Colors of beige and light gray visually expand the space. Lines, serve as the main element of design with their elegant simplicity. Trellises in dark powder-coated wood finish add their own flourish at the entrance and exit to the elevator hallway. They are prominent as they provide accent to the otherwise light-hued interiors but also practical as they aid in the flow of foot traffic and conceal service areas in the lobby. To add some play in light, vertical strips of beveled mirror in seemingly random placement add a play in light on the walls. The diagonal orientation of the flooring meanwhile adds a linearity of aesthetics to the area. Finally, the curvature of the furniture pieces and accessories soften and balance the entire ensemble.
The hallways leading to the residential units match the lobby’s look, though with more pronounced lines on the floor for a livelier impression. Also noteworthy are the natural lighting and ventilation of the halls, eliminating the confining feelings one gets from enclosed passages.
Even while bare, the units are just as bright and warm with their ivory-colored walls and light glossy tiles for the common area floor. The bedrooms meanwhile get wood laminates. The kitchen comes not only with granite counters and soft-closing cabinetry, but also with built-in electric cooktops and ovens. Save for the bath and storage provisions in each unit, floor-to-ceiling windows let in natural light and the cityscape. Each unit is also equipped with a video intercom for added security.
Beyond the units, it’s easy to see that One Eastwood Avenue does not skimp on the amenities. Sky pocket gardens purposefully placed in specific floors, reflexology paths, and meditation gardens provide a tranquility and relaxation for anyone weary from the hustle and bustle of the city.
For the health and wellness of its residents, the condo has lap pools, gyms, badminton courts, and even a separate solely for yoga and Pilates.
Meanwhile, for entertaining guests and hosting social events, the condo has outdoor lounges and bars, game rooms, and multiple function rooms with service areas. Even kids have plenty of entertainment options through the condo’s playroom, playgrounds, and children’s pool.
All amenities have a distinct aesthetic, making no two alike. However, all remain faithful to the contemporary atmosphere of One Eastwood Avenue.
It’s no surprise that with all its necessities, comforts, and features, One Eastwood Avenue has been nominated for Best High-End Condominium in Metro Manila for 2017. Goes to show that Eastwood remains in the game, as strong as it has ever been as it plows through to even the toughest of real estate competition. Its holistic approach on function, design solutions, and aesthetics would brings One Eastwood Avenue forward as a top choice for people looking for their urban dwelling.
