Today, the upwardly mobile indulge by purchasing a designer outfit, buying a sports car or escaping to a Caribbean cruise. In no time however, just staying home can be a pleasurable and indulgent experience.
This is because recent studies like that conducted by HSBC show that individuals are seeking wealth not just for wealth's sake, but to find the kind that enables them to rear a family and gives them freedom to pursue their interests and hobbies amid fast-paced living.
Banking into these new findings are different real estate developers that have come up with residential spaces offering discerning city dwellers the ability to enhance their well-being through empowered and indulgent living. At the forefront of these is Senta, the latest project of Alveo Land Corp., an Ayala Land Company. A 39-storey residential tower facing the greenery of the Legazpi and W.Sycip Parks, Senta is set to be an icon for high-powered living right in the middle of the country's premier financial district.
"The new affluent are looking for a different kind of fortune - things that can make their lives better and help them develop into holistic individuals. They are looking for a quick refuge after a hectic day; they want to appreciate nature and have the luxury of time to be with their families and friends; they want to achieve their other dreams aside from their careers while remaining plugged into the fast life of business and commerce," says Alveo Land Corp. President Dan Abando.
Most urban achievers, especially those who are at the top of their game, are looking for residential spaces that are a stone's throw away from commercial and corporate hubs, medical establishments, educational institutions, shopping destinations, as well as unique dining and retail options. This saves them from the stress brought about by heavy traffic that eats up a lot of time that could have been used for pleasurable endeavors like a swim in the pool or a gym workout.
Staying true to Alveo Land's track record of building sound residential communities in highly networked places, Senta will rise a few steps from the global retail experience offered by Greenbelt where urbanites can explore redefined and refreshing ways of shopping, leisure, dining and recreation. It is also within walking distance from Makati Central Business District's towering skyscrapers that houses top commercial and corporate offices.
Inspiring aesthetics and indulgent amenities
Senta is set to be an icon in the distinct bohemian landscape of Legazpi Village with its elegant facade of full vertical glass corner panels. "Good aesthetics is inspiring and stirs positive emotions in people," explains Abando.
An elegant lobby designed by renowned interior designer Ed Calma gives a soothing prelude to what Senta holds. A fusion of intricate, contemporary design and homey ambience, Senta's art museum-inspired lobby renders a relaxing and visually enticing atmosphere to both residents and guests.
Abando also said that what makes Senta unique are the different water elements and amenities that are present in the condominium. "Water has a relaxing effect on people. Just hearing it and watching the fluidity of its movement is very calming," notes Abando. Senta's podium level features three different swimming pools for urbanites whose way of relieving stress is through plunging in the waters: a lap pool for hardcore serious swimmers; a children's pool for kids who are starting to love water sports; and a lounge pool with heated Jacuzzis and a private outdoor theatre - an unprecedented facility in condominiums that is expected to elevate the concept of "passing time" to a whole new altitude.
Gym buffs can also engage in an adrenaline pumping work out that is medically proven to release endorphins in the brain that make people feel better in Senta's fully-equipped gym that overlooks the serene greenery of Legazpi and W.SyCip Park. The podium also houses a children's playground that features modern play equipment that allow kids to explore the world and in turn, develop their creativity in a safe environment. Likewise, deck areas are present for laid back afternoons - ideal for busy individuals seeking a quiet refuge.
Relaxing on a green roof
Completing Senta's multi-sensory living experience are the different facilities found in its roof deck. Utilizing the principles of green roofing technology, Senta's roof deck merges top-of-the-line amenities and natural elements. A putting green provides private and intimate putting exercises that can clear the minds of busy executives while a Zen-inspired rock garden is an ideal venue to savor the simple things in life. A multi-purpose garden is also at hand to host different events for nightcaps with colleagues and family which can provide a boost of energy for burned-out urban achievers.
The Center of Power and Pleasure
From its strategic location, state-of-the-art amenities, green elements, to its beautiful structure and façade, Senta's potential of improving the overall well-being of its future residents is very likely. Through Alveo Land's forward thinking, expect that urban achievers are soon to find a residential niche in the metro that exemplifies their successes and amplifies their wellness.
