Not to be a critic but more of a patriot, I just hope that with these massive developments in Metro Manila shall rise a project bearing a Filipino name. Obviously, most, if not all of these projects are named in a very foreign way, leading mostly on Americanized tags or whatsoever...

Then again, just a thought my friends - just a simple nationalistic thought.

It's actually happening not only in the Philippines but in neighboring countries as well. The only difference is that there are far less places in Manila with a native sounding name than those of neighboring countries. It's something I just noticed while looking at projects in Bangkok, Phnom Pehn, and Jakarta. Calling that new project in Quezon City Luntiang Bilog instead of Circulo Verde would be nice.

Stratford Residences


ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Stratford Residences is PICAR’s most luxurious high-rise residential project to date, set to become an envy of all other developers in property development industry.

It shall be the tallest building to rise in the country, eclipsing other high-rise towers sprouting around the metro.

It aims to target only the privileged few, those at the top of the elite class, who would want to sense the feeling of being at the top of almost everything.

With panoramic views of the each section of the land for every unit, one could feel the pride of being inside it, a sense of reaching the height of success and career.

The project’s unique architectural design speaks of PICAR’s aim of becoming the standard, the milestone, the benchmark of other real estate developers in the country today.

LOCATION



Inspired by unique office buildings such as Hearst Corporate Center and One Bryant Park (both in New York), the project sits on a 3,504.65 sqm lot out of the 1.3 has of land formerly occupied by International School Manila, along Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City.

It lies inside the country’s most important central business district – Makati Top educational institutions such as Ateneo Business & Law School & the Asian Institute of Management is just a few blocks away.

Posh restos, major banks & financial institutions, embassies and office headquarters of some of the world’s companies are very near the site.

Just within a few blocks from the project site are the following: Makati Medical Center, Makati Coliseum, Ayala Museum, Makati Sports Club, and some malls like Greenbelt, Glorietta, Landmark, & SM.

I think a better comparison would be between two different versions of the day renders...

Silver or gold?
