BGC | Sapphire Residences

Hi,

I was sent these materials from a Nemia Lagrana who says she is from GW, and I would like to share these with you all.

I also have a sample computation of a 20th floor 3br unit for those who are interested.

Gibson, hope this is ok, it didn't say that the materials were confidential.

That condo looks like a typical Vancouver condo

OT but, they got the location of the British and Japanese school wrong. Both are actually one lot down.

...not to mention, keeps the real estate values high. It's very much in the interest of developers to set park space aside. Park views command a substantial price premium. With most of the Manila Golf boundary already allocated, there is a need to reserve more open spaces inside the Fort in order to maintain the luxury reputation.

Anyway, Sapphire looks gorgeous! It looks like there are no lofts, but I suppose one could vertically combine 2 units. I especially like the alcoves surrounded by windows, and the bathtub with a view in the 2BR (assuming you've got some blinds when you need them).

Bakit wala yata akong nakitang 3br sa building floor plan? Or inilagay lahat ng 3br above 21st floor?

could be that a 3BR is just a combination of 1BR and 2BR units.

1BR = 48 sqm
2BR = 80 sqm

3BR = 48 + 80 = 128sqm

I was talking to Gibs awhile ago (it's difficult to call because of the strong typhoon here sa Pinas!) and he mentioned that the roof deck has a Sky Garden --- I just don't know if they will place trees there ---a mini-jungle, probably? ha ha ha! That's a cool feature!

Crescent Park will stay. That's an open space and as per BGC Masterplan, it will stay.

So does that mean that there's no penthouse unit sa Sapphire Residence? And will the Sky Garden be available to all unit owners all the time or reserved for special occasions only? Sana hindi masyadong destructive ang bagyo.

Dvorak - siguro nga combination ng two and one bedroom. Makes sense so one can specify which way his 3br unit is facing kasi napansin ko all four corners ay puedeng maging 3br unit.

Medyo naiba yata ang naming scheme ng GW. Dati puro mga pangalan ng lugar, ngayon naging precious stone ang pangalan. Kung ganoon pala di sana ginawa ng Diamond Residence para mas mataas na quality stone. Unless may Chinese significance ang Sapphire.

Sapphire kasi ang birthstone ko kaya yan ang name hehehe jk!

anyway, the building looks very nice. the design is not too far from its Hamptons brothers so i'm pretty sure they will complement each other once they're all built. good job, GW!

Hi Mr. Ty - haven't bumped into you for a while. May kitakita tayo sa Oct.8 na posted sa Bay Area Meet in case you have not seen it yet.
Siguro nga may kinalaman sa birthstone and Sapphire Residence. Mukhang maganda nga ang design at kita ang similarity sa other GW projects and yet may pagkakaiba gaya ng roof. Can't wait to learn more about it from Gibson.
