i think it will depend on how well san jose will build this. based on what we read about their previous projects, they will have a lot of improving to do.

>>but being connected to an mrt station is a plus point.

correct hindi kasali sa rendering ang mrt. pero there willl be a walk way to the mrt which i think is very nice. how much kaya ng resale value nito. anyone? i got 57 sqm for 3.05m on 9th floor. i'm thinking of reselling it or maybe renting it out. hmm? any suggestion guys? help me naman. i talked to my agent and asked about residencia de manila. they said na victoria station is on the higher end compare to residencia. so di daw mangyayari ang nangyari sa residencia. i hope he's right. this seems like a good project naman . kaya lang i wonder kung bakit di masyado ang advertisement. any clue why?/

resale value will depend kung maso-sold-out nila ang units upon turn over and the number of takers. simple law of supply and demand. if there will still be units upon turn over, then makikipag-compete ka sa mismong developer in selling your unit.

in regards with rental, there are only 2 major companies in the area, GMA and ABS. most likely people from these companies will be renting your unit as it will only be walking distance to their work, especially GMA.

The location is very good... almost equidistant to the commercial centers of Cubao and North EDSA. Very near the future QC CBD. It might be a bit noisy if you live on the lower floors near the street. I hope they use better materials than what they've used at their Victoria Towers project.

I've seen their Francesca Tower (also along EDSA and just a stone's throw away from Victoria Station) and Victoria Towers... and I'm sorry but I wasn't impressed with both. Victoria Tower (the model unit) looked low-cost just like Francesca. Same thing with Victoria Station. Outside, Victoria Station would be more glitzy but the units I think still echo the make of Francesca inside. That made me decide to choose a MW project instead despite the fact that I really like the QC location of either the Victoria Towers and Victoria Station. The agent I spoke to told me actress Angel Locsin bought a unit from this project so it might say something about its location and accessibility being a money-maker when it's finished. Don't know if he was pulling my leg though regarding that Angel Locsin thing...

what wrong with the materials they used on victoria towers? it may be noisy nga siguro if you're closer to the streets but the residential starts at 7th floor commericail area will occupy the first 6 floors and the its also loft size so di naman na siguro masyado maingay. the model unit is not fancy at all pero bare namang ibibigay so it doesn't really matter. but i do like the lay out of the unit. and kung toto ang sinabi sa kin ng agent ko okay din ang amenities. they have a pool conference room and gym daw so ok na din. i been to francesca but i dont think it comes close to victoria station even though they have the same developer. so whats wrong with the materials at victoria towers again?

I apologize... It's not the material per se. IMO, the Victoria Station unit still echo of Francesca in its make though the building itself is far superior in design. And you're right... it's going to be bare when they deliver it so you get to choose the materials to use. My impartiality springs from over-all impression out of comparison with others. The unit would be delivered bare whereas another developer offered tiled floors upon turn-over. The unit felt cramped for me, especially the upper floor area where they advertise you can partition three bedrooms out of but then again you get to decide how you would divide the space upon turn-over. The stair that leads to the upper level of the unit... I forgot which one is it (Victoria Tower's or Victoria Station's or both) is of metal plates and though it seemed "industrial" in durability, it turned me off because I've seen a better make from other developers.

I've been to a fifth level Francesca unit and you could still hear some street noise from there. It would probably be even less so from the 6th floor and upwards. The advantage of the tenants here as compared to, say tenants of GA Twin Towers in Mandaluyong is that traffic is relatively free-flowing here unlike at Boni Avenue which is a major stop... so it's less noisy.

Those amenities you've mentioned are a great add on but again, not only Victoria Station offers those. Overall, the price is very reasonable if I were to consider the location, transport accessibility, and amenities. Once finished and furnished, it could score high on resell or rent out with the GMA network Station just a walk away and the ABS-CBN building (with its call centers) nearby.

yeah. you are right icarus. the presentation of their model units are not as impressive as the others. the actually just did it themselves no interior decorator or anything like that. it is nothing compare to GA sky suites ( which is just a stone throw away from victoria station). but the problem with GA skyuites is the turn over date is in 2012 while victoria station is january 2009 ( it is also more expensive). My agentt said that they want to save the money they will use for the model unit so that they can sell the unit at a lower price also. they want to pass on the savings as so they say. and yeah the stairs turned me of also but my agent insist that they will for sure deliver a better stairs than the one in the model unit. The victoria station is up to 20th floor and 566 units. i'm not sure if thats too crowded or not, i don't know how many units each floor has for other projects, but i like that fact that there will be 4 residential elevator and 2 commercial elevator. other projects that are 30 or more storey high only have 3 elevators which can be caused of delayed if i may say. yeah the amenities are the same as the other projects. we just have to see what will it look like when it gets deliver. and the best thing about this project is its location. I wonder if we will be able to hear the train on 9th floor? hmm?

i got a unit here too. okay namn sya. bakit parang may mga bad publicities regarding this unit eh as far as i was told maayos naman ang project na to. although di nga lang katulad ng iba ang advertisement ( less ) ng project na to kasi they want to pass on the savings nga daw. which i can believe. i love the bare unit at least you can do what you want with it. saka you wont be stuck with furnishings that you do not like. the amenities are the same as other projects. malaki ang commercial area. up to 6th floor pala. i wonder kung ma occupied lahat ng unit don. i laso like the bridgeway sa mrt. saka ang ganda ng location. i wonder if there's anyone who got a unit from here aside from me and jhayeares.

Since I'm a resident of Tomas Morato.. I actually do pass by this construction site everytime I take the GMA MRT. So far so good... and yes I agree that renting this out to the GMA employees or even "artists" would be a great idea

Location nga ang maganda sa project na ito very good one talaga. GMA walking distance lang. malapit din pala to sa mga gimikan sa quezon city ngayon ko lang na realize di kasi ako tiga qc eh. malapit din sa government office. i also learned na malapit din ito sa future qc cbd according to icarus. ( icarus san ba ang future qc cbd ? thanks)san pa ba ito malapit?
alam nyo ba kung ma traffic ba sa lugar na ito? edsa corner sgt esguerra?
i talked to my agent also and he told me na this is on the higher end compare to francesca and it looks so much better naman talaga.
This project is under rated because of their model unit but it seems full with potential naman.

^The Quezon City Central Business District would be composed of the North, East Triangle Areas, SM North EDSA Compound and Veterans Memorial Medical Center... yung East Triangle nasa tapat ng Victoria Station. Yung North Triangle andun na yung Trinoma.


Here's the related article from the Quezon City thread...

World Bank to back QC gov't plan for a central business district
By: Iris Cecila C. Gonzales | BusinessWorld

The World Bank has expressed interest in supporting Quezon City's plan to convert a 250-hectare prime property into a major business district, officials yesterday said.

Quezon City government officials last week met with representatives of the Washington-based agency for possible participation in the project, city treasurer Victor B. Endriga said in an interview yesterday.

He said the World Bank had tapped the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) to conduct a study on the feasibility of the project. BusinessWorld called the office of the World Bank's public relations office thrice yesterday, but was not able to contact the person in charge. BusinessWorld also called Dr. Marife Magno-Ballesteros, a PIDS official in charge of the project, but she was also unavailable for comment.

World Bank in particular is interested in financing the relocation of squatters that will be affected by the project.

There is an estimated 2,000 families that will be affected by the conversion of some lands into investment zones.

"What they're interested in is in the relocation of squatters and on how to ensure an effective road network," Mr. Endriga said.

World Bank is interested in the project because of its impact on illegal settlers, he said.

City Mayor Feliciano Belmonte, Jr. welcomed World Bank's proposal.

In the induction of the Quezon City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Wednesday night, Mr. Belmonte told other local government officials and businessmen of the planned business district.

He said the local government wants to speed up the project to find new sources of revenue for the city.

He said Quezon City is already in discussions with some of the country's taipans for participation in the project.

The Henry Sy group, for instance, has already expressed interest in occupying a portion of the proposed central business district as it wants to build a high-rise residential condominium in the area.

The Lucio Tan group is also planning to build a hotel on the corner lot of Quezon Avenue and Edsa.

The 250-hectare lot for the business district stretches from the North Triangle area along North Edsa towards the East Avenue area. It covers lots mostly owned by the National Food Authority, some of which are occupied by illegal settlers. Some of the areas are privately owned.

These areas are identified in the Quezon City Comprehensive Land Use Plan of 2000 as "areas of growth and influence."

The local government plans to enter into long-term contracts of 30 to 35 years with private developers.

It plans to lure more investments into the city with the construction of the business park.
