pano ang systema HOA dues dito? parang may nabasa ako dati sa TRAG thread na mas mataas yata HOA dues ng isang tower.

that is true for filinvest. Ayala Land seems to be sticking to their traditional designs.

when i asked them the same question, they said that ORT was built in a time when the materials used for its construction are relatively cheaper than today. So we might not see something like ORT from them anytime soon. Maybe for the corporate offices we will see more glassy buildings.

As for building towers at the same time, ALI can do that also imho. ALI is conservative though, they take their time but they deliver. Well, except for Ayala Tower 2, which as of now is not yet built.

anyhow, below are the floor plans of the only available units left.

Here are the info I rewritten from their brochure:

5. How much are the association dues?

The association dues will be computed at the time of the establishment of the Condominium Corporation, based on the formula indicated in the Master Deed. Current average monthly association dues of similar type-condominium developments range from PP 93/sqm to PHP 115/sqm. Payment of association dues will commence upon turnover of the unit to the buyer.

6. Will the area of the balcony be included in the association dues?

The balcony being a Limited Unit Common Area will only incur expenses, such as Real Property Tax and insurance. The master deed requires the unit owner to pay for the share in the expenses of all Limited Unit Common Areas. The share will depend on the size of the balcony and/or Limited Unit Common Area of the unit relative to the total Limited Unit Common Area in the tower.

7. Will the dues for the amenities at the towers be shared among all the unit owners of Park Terraces?

At full development, Tower 1 and Tower 2 residential unit owners will share the amenities, thus, they will also share in the maintenance and operating costs of these shared amenities. The motorcourt and easements at the ground floor and basements, as well as the other common areas identified to be shared by the three (3) towers, will be shared by all three towers. Common areas identified as those shared with the Commercial units will be shared by the residential towers and the commercial units.

For more info, see the pdf file i uploaded via scribd: http://www.scribd.com/doc/25221853/A...Terraces-Facts

i know you can't for this project. but you can negotiate this. though, on the other hand, there is no more available small units that can be combined except for the 3-bedrooms.

I suppose its saving money just tweaking the architecture and using the same firm.

but thats why the older makati buildings look ugly...they all looked like Locsin concrete clones.(especially Ayala Avenue between Paseo and Makati Avenue)
ditto to the Arya condo in the fort. The twin towers are copies of Fairways and Rizal Rockwell.

Budgeting by the developers keeps architectural innovations to a minimum even if Pinoy architects are lusting to show off their creativity
Ayala Terraces Cebu is bigger than Greenbelt. They have a wide open space at the center.

seriosuly eaton_sqaure, those two projects are like apples and oranges. you may compare this with TRAG though, wherein basically they look the same... Trion Towers are like SMDC projects. hope that helps.

i've been getting calls/texts from ali sales agents ever since this project was launched. they tell me how this is a lot better compared to trag which is short of magnificent. funny becoz a few yrs ago when they were selling me trag, which i bought, they told me this is the best and the most magnificent condo project blah blah coz ur right inside the greenbelt complex. isn't it ironic that they hail a project, and then when its sold and they launch another one, they tell u that the previous ones they were selling is cracked egg? geez...these sales people, it never ends.


anyways, my personal take on this one:

i think u can speculate that the finishings and facilities could be better than trag, since it is a newer project. i mean developers, esp ali, would be constantly innovating for sure.

but when it comes to the "elite factor", this one falls short of trag in my opinion. for one thing, u got studio units, which trag doesn't have. and another thing, there's way too much unit in a floor. whereas w/ trag its only 6-7 units(at least w/ my tower).

ORT and PPT and ESSENSA are older than trag, but u can't tell me that trag is better in terms of exclusivity. its obviously the former that have it.

this is just my take. nothing wrong, nothing right. i'm sure its a great investment park terraces.

this is perfectly true amongst some sales people. TRAG is somewhat similar to Park Terraces but it does not mean that its better. Park Terraces offers an Ayala Land Premiere product to a wider demographic. At almost Alveo Land prices, people who would rather choose a smaller unit can avail this project.

leechtat: its an ayala land premier product allright. with the finishings and locations and all that glory. but it is in no way an alveo price. the price is also a premier price. hehehe. but i think its worth it. the columns in buendia looks like a "never were"...not even a "has been"

The site is the best there is so far. I chose a G unit since these 1 BR units are one of the less expensive ones (maybe because of its west orientation and trapezoidal shape). Turned out to be a good choice because you not only have a good view of San Lorenzo Village (which has lots of mature and towering trees, and one of Makati's elite villages), but also a view of the outdoor infinity pool below.

Great location, hard to beat for convenience...same as TRAG.. I don't really like the design though, each tower looks ok by itself but the way they are orientated to each other looks odd..and it looks as though they are all the same height. TRAG has better design imo.

I agree...it's over priced and I have stayed on both Joya and Manansala. Their amenities are average and there's nothing going on there. They are pretty much for retirees in my opinion.
