Primehomes Real Estate Development Inc. recently topped off its first building in Larossa, an upcoming "urban botanical community" in Capitol Hills, Quezon City.
The building, called Camia, is pegged for turnover early in 2015. Finishing touches are currently underway. Meanwhile, construction is ongoing for Sampaguita and Magnolia, the two other buildings that comprise Phase 1 of the project.
Spanning 3.6 hectares, Larossa is a masterplanned community composed of mid-rise, 10-story residential buildings surrounded by greenery, including a "homegrown collection of century-old trees." As an "urban botanical community," its thrust is to provide a lifestyle in harmony with nature, according to its developer.
With an Asian tropical theme, the community is designed with 65 percent of its territory devoted to open spaces, as per the masterplan. Amenities include a pool, a roofdeck, basement parking, and a clubhouse, among others.
Larossa’s 10 residential buildings will be built over three phases. Once completed, the community will feature a total of 2,869 units ranging from studio to one-bedroom types. Studios measure approximately 23 to 36 square meters, while one-bedroom units span 31 to 38 square meters.
Larossa is located within a short drive to Quezon City’s university belt, according to Primehomes. It is five minutes from the Ateneo de Manila University, the University of the Philippines, and Miriam College. The UP-Ayala Technohub and UP Town Center also provide convenient retail and dining options to the community.
