as long it is within height limit, I think it is considered mid-rise Sir...
Within the height limit of what? That is a vague statement which deserves further clarification. Please indicate which height limit you are referring to.

Anyway, will this be on the adjacent lot west of Avida Towers New Manila?

As per sanjoseca.gov:

"Mid-Rise Housing is typically 50-150 feet in
height (approximately 5-12 stories) with a
characteristic density of 40-90 dwelling units per
net acre (flats), not including common open
space.

High-Rise Housing is typically 150 feet or
greater in height (more than 12 stories) with a
144"

Hehe I just had to research a bit to confirm...na mali pala ako. All these time I thought mid-rise bldgs are those multi-level structures that do not require an elevator, translating to maybe 3-4 floors lang, like those Bliss Housing projects noong araw. Up to 12 storeys pala considered mid-rise pa rin. :nuts:

Yes. Like in the case of Makati and Manila, height limits are already for skyscrapers (or for supertall in Makati as in the case of Stratford). It's not safe to say "within height limits". Anyway, up to now, I still don't know the boundary between low rise and medium rise.

^^ Well, there is no universally accepted definition of what constitutes a mid-rise structure nor is there a general agreement between regulatory bodies and agencies. The definitions vary depending on who you ask and a difference in definition wouldn't make one or the other wrong as different dictionaries would define them differently, city governments would create their own classifications, and governing bodies may each make differing explanations.

So the bottomline is, @brian504, it's not safe to question someone's definition of a mid-rise.

@foxyface - No, you are not wrong, it's just that the San José, California government, would have it's own interpretation of what a mid-rise structure is just as any other city government would have their own.

What is the track record of the developer of this project?

Hehe sorry if i got this off-topic. I just thought that 15 storeys is a bit high for a mid-rise but you're right. It depends on where the building is located. 15 storeys may be a bit high in the middle of nowhere but it could be considered low elsewhere..

There is no certain and universally accepted height requirement for a building to be considered a medium-rise. Pero kapag 20 floors pataas, kina-classify na natin as a high-rise building.

PRO-FRIENDS unveils first-ever condominium project
by The Philippine Star | Friday | Updated December 14, 2012 | 12:00am



The Ilustrata Residences stands tall at the heart of the metropolis in Cubao, Quezon City.

MANILA, Philippines - The Property Company of Friends, Inc. (PRO-FRIENDS), one of the fastest growing real estate developers in the Philippines, has unveiled Ilustrata Residences, its first-ever residential condominium project in Metro Manila.

Located along Santolan Road in Cubao, Quezon City, the residential condominium offers young professionals and start-up families the unique advantage of comfortably and conveniently living in the city while being detached from the metro’s pollution.

Strategically built to connect its residents from north to south through EDSA and east to west through Ortigas Avenue, the Ilustrata Residences is accessible to any given route involving main roads, alternative detours and public transportation to go around the city.

Ilustrata Residences is a mid-rise residential condominium with six buildings amidst the affluent lifestyle of Greenhills, the tree-lined avenues of New Manila and the laid-back ambience of the residential enclaves along Mariposa. With these surroundings, the Ilustrata Residences offers its residents their own urban haven in a prestigious address. Buyers can own units starting at P7,500 per month.

“We are pleased to have our most recent city residential condominium built right in the middle of Metro Manila to cater to discerning individuals and families who are looking for homes that fit their budget, provide them value for their money and are easily accessible to any part of the city,” said PRO-FRIENDS Corporate Communications Director Monica Morales.

Ilustrata Residences is situated at # 39 Boni Serrano Avenue, Bagong Lipunan ng Crame, Cubao, Quezon City.
