Luxury developer Rockwell Land recently launched the fifth and tallest tower of its residential block in Rockwell Center, Makati.
The Proscenium Residences stands at 59 stories, defined by clean modern lines, a signature look from Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott. Ott has garnered recognition for the Opéra de la Bastille in Paris, which was inaugurated in 1989. He has since contributed his work to skylines around the globe.
Priced at P7 to P37 million each, The Proscenium has 100 studio units measuring 29 square meters; 122 one-bedroom units with 62 square meters; 241 two-bedroom units spanning 119 square meters, and 100 three-bedroom units with 147 square meters.
As of the tower's launch event, Rockwell has sold six percent of the units, raking in P400 million. By 2018 or 2019, Rockwell expects all units to have sold out, according to a company executive; sales are expected to amount to P11 billion overall.
Envisioned as modern living spaces where art and culture inform everyday life, the Proscenium stands adjacent to its very own Performing Arts Theater, a 500-seater space where residents and guests can enjoy live music and theater. The Lopez Museum is also within the premises, housing an extensive archive of Filipiniana literature, maps, and a collection of paintings by Old Masters Juan Luna and Felix Ressurreccion Hidalgo, and National Artists Carlos "Botong" Francisco, Vicente Manansala, H.R. Ocampo, Cesar Legaspi, and Arturo Luz.
The tower's fifth-floor amenity deck features jogging paths, several pools, a gazebo, a spacious garden, a splash pad, and an outdoor tennis court. A business center is also on hand for meetings and official events.
Rockwell has pegged completion and turnover of the tower during the second quarter of 2021.
