Smart Real Estate
Philippine Star - February 26, 2005

A home is a legacy of our hard work and a testament to success. That is why buying a place we can call home becomes not only an emotional and exciting experience, it is also a major and significant financial investment that needs to be carefully thought of.
With the myriad of houses and condominiums in Metro Manila, searching for that ideal residence can be a daunting task. But keep in mind that though purchases can most likely fall as an emotional buy, real estate is a major investment. If you have done research and compared what is in the market, you definitely won’t fail to notice the residential projects called South of Market and Soho Central- Revolutionary developments from Class-A developer Century Properties- Meridien Development Group. With about 90% of both inventories taken up in less than 14 months, South of Market and Soho Central have definitely made an impact in the market. Why? Smart real estate. Here are at least 5 reasons.

South of Market is situated in prime Bonifacio, Global City- a fully masterplanned community just 2 minutes away from Makati Central Business while Soho Central is strategically located in Mandaluyong City right across Shangri-La Mall.
Century Properties `Inc-Meridien Development Group has 20 years of solid experience in real estate. Its collection of the more than 60 projects that it has marketed, managed or developed attest to its strong commitment for quality, excellence and reliability. With over US$2.5 billion worth of assets under its helm, CPI-MDG has become the largest privately owned property group in the Philippines.
Its portfolio of other high quality developments include: Le Triomphe, Le Metropole, Le Domaine, Pacific Place, Medical Plaza Makati and Ortigas, West of Ayala, Oxford Suites, One Magnificent Mile and Essensa East Forbes. It has recently turned over Bel-air Soho in prime Makati, one year ahead of schedule.
As expected, South of Market and Soho Central will be delivered in the standards and
quality people have come to expect throughout the years.

Unit prices at South of Market or SOMA start for as low as P3 Million while soho Central can be yours for as low as P2 Million, Both offers attractive payment terms for as low as P18,000/mo and P10,000/mo respectively.
Additionally, as a co-development project, SOMA is VAT, DOC stamps and Transfer Taxes free. This translates to huge savings for buyers, which at times amounts to 25%-30% vs. other condos in the area.

It takes about 6 months to a year to fully furnish a unit. And it doesn’t completely come to mind to buyers of ‘build to own’ or bare/empty units that they would need to hire a a electrician, a carpenter, a painter etc. to fix their units. Not only is this very costly, it is also very time consuming. After which, you have to decorate your unit and buy appliances, fixtures and furniture. All of which amounts to additional expenses. Not to mention the hassle and stress that comes with it.
At SOMA and Soho Central, because all units are delivered FULLY-FITTED and COMPLETELY FURNISHED, once unit is turned over, unit owners can immediately move in or lease their units and earn income from Day 1. By incorporating all these into each unit, SOMA and Soho Central takes away a lot of the worry and headache away from clients.
Each unit comes complete with washing machine, airconditioning unit per bedroom, refrigerator, cooktop, rangehood, microwave, flatscreen TV, DVD player, entertainment sound system, Living Room set including sofa, coffee table and chair, Dining Room Set including a dining table and chairs, bedframe in each bedroom, kitchen cabinetry, phone line and cable T.V. provisions, closets for bedrooms.

Luxury suites are offered in 1,2 and combined 3 rooms ranging from 39 to 227 square meters. Layouts, come with floor to ceiling windows and balconies give an unmistakably grand and roomy feeling to each home.
Other outstanding facilities that can be found in both buildings; a health and fitness center, a swimming pool, resident’s lounge, function rooms and commercial area, to name a few.
