Filinvest opens first high-rise condo in Makati

#MakatiCondo March 9, 2011

Filinvest's first high-rise residential condominium in Makati City makes a strong statement on a fulfilling lifestyle. As one of the country's leading real estate developers, Filinvest brings to the fore the importance of a holistic lifestyle that unfortunately gets overlooked as city dwellers struggle to keep with the demands of the urban jungle.

Committed to improving the urbanite's quality of life, Filinvest created The Linear, a masterplanned residential and commercial hub which consists of two L-shaped towers, each 24 stories high. It lines up all the things that city dwellers need dynamic lifestyles, proximity to the prime destinations, and great investment value.

The Linear is ideal for start-up families, young professionals working in the Makati CBD, and even for OFWs looking for a good investment.

The groundbreaking ceremony was held recently to mark the official start of construction. Special discounts and freebies were given to customers who wanted to experience the Linear's lifestyle.

Market response to the new project has been strong since its launch, prompting Filinvest to launch Tower 2 more than a year in advance. To date, customer reservations have reached 83 percent for Tower 1 and 24 percent for Tower 2.

The Linear is a joint venture development of Filinvest and Felipe Yupangco and Sons, Inc. 

Bounded by Mayapis, Malugay, and Yakal Streets in Makati, the new project enjoys a location that's within paces away from where all the action happens. Workplaces at the Makati Central Business District and schools are minutes away.

Meanwhile, leisure and recreation do not have to take a backseat, as the city's prime malls are nearby. It is minutes away from Makati Medical Center and Ospital ng Makati.

As if being close to all these prime destinations isn't enough, the new residential tower brings everyday needs right at one's doorstep. Service and specialty shops - such as water refilling stations, laundry shops, 24-hour convenience stores, coffee shops, and restaurants - are available at the ground level.

But what makes The Linear unique is the premium it puts on environmental responsibility. Installed atop the multipurpose covered court is an eco-roof system that minimizes UV and temperature impact, cuts energy consumption, and improves air quality by filtering pollutants.

Each of the studios, one- and two-bedroom units are built without beams and columns to maximize use of every square inch.
