Condominiums tend to have a reputation as mere halfway houses, pied-à-terres, or for-now-homes. However, more and more Filipinos are opting to be long term high-rise dwellers with the unparalleled convenience and panache of condo living.
With this in mind, Golden Bay Landholdings COO Jardin Wong, decided to think outside the box for their pioneer residential project aptly named Garden City. “We didn’t want our future residents to live in a shoebox where they wake up, go to work, go home, repeat. We envisioned Garden City to be an oasis, the ultimate urban paradise where they can live their best life. ”
The overall design experience is anchored in the property’s moniker “Your Ultimate Urban Paradise” with over 50% of the development dedicated to gardens and purposeful spaces while conveniently located near Metro Manila’s thriving cityscape. Garden City is a six-tower, 18-storey mini city that marries the beauty of nature with everyday modern living.
A huge part of making Garden City more livable was indulging residents with choice, there are a total of 15 amenities and counting. The premises will have a plethora of engaging amenities for families to singletons. Families can enjoy a pool-side weekend barbeque or a morning picnic by the Chi garden. Parents will love the indoor and outdoor play areas for kids.
For digital nomads, there will be a library lounge and co-working space exclusive for residents. A game room will also be available should they want to destress. To start or end their day, a state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor gym with the latest equipment will also be on the centralized amenities deck. There will be dedicated nature podiums and open shared spaces where they can meditate and relax.
“In condos, you don’t really establish closeness to your neighbors but we really made an effort in designing the amenities to bring the residents together to foster that sense of community,” Wong points out. Aside from the aforementioned, residents can also invite guests over for a private movie screening in the mini theater or utilize the clubhouse for grander and larger celebrations.
“The well-appointed amenity deck is the social backbone of the development,” Wong shares. Each nook and area is designed to bring residents closer to nature, themselves, their family, and their community. “These spaces will encourage a nature-inspired lifestyle that will greatly improve our residents’ overall well-being.”
Beauty and Bio-Responsibility
“The beauty of Garden City is in its purposefulness. The design and architecture is inspired by the beauty and zen of nature,” the COO shares. Joining forces with WTA Architecture + Design Studio, Garden City stands out from the standard, cookie-cutter condominium template. The low-rise development features multiple green pocket areas and curved edges for a more welcoming and natural feel.
The towers of Garden City will also be named after trees local to the Philippine ecosystem like Yakal, Narra, and Molave to name a few. “Our concept was born out of a desire to offer nature-inspired living and to usher a sustainable brand of lifestyle. This concept represents a direct connection between people and nature, bringing future residents closer to the environment,” he points out.
It’s important to note that Golden Bay’s passion for nature is not just for the sake of saying. The developer is extremely committed to sustainability and the environment. “We really went out of our way to find suppliers with planet-friendly products,” Wong points out. He also admits that while there are cheaper, conventional alternatives available in the market, their environmental pledge is far more valuable and creating an ecologically responsible property is priceless.
However, don’t just take our word for it, an international jury of design purveyors approve of Garden City’s holistic and modern design when it won in the prestigious 2022 OPAL Awards in London, United Kingdom.
Comfort & Convenience
Garden City is a full-fledged mini city that has everything a condo dweller could ever want. You have the privacy and comfort of your own unit and just an elevator ride away are curated communal spaces for your leisure. For everything else, essential specialty shops will be dotted along the street-level retail strip of the property. If it’s not within its walls, it should just be a stone’s throw away with the property’s convenient location in the Urban Core of the South, Bacoor City.
As condos outgrow the notions surrounding their longevity and livability, it’s important to opt for developments that prioritize their residents’ wellbeing. Garden City is the ultimate urban paradise that ticks all the boxes for any aspiring condo dweller who wants to live in and beyond the four walls of their unit. From a wide selection of amenities to Zen design, Golden Bay
Landholdings has reimagined a new living concept in Garden City.
