Preselling Condo At The Albany
The Albany – Kingsley Tower at McKinley Hill West
Star rating systems are typically used to classify the level of luxury of hotels: the greater the number of stars, the higher the level of luxury. As such, Five-Star ratings are given to hotels for having excellent standards in service, maintenance and hospitality. Hallmarks of such luxurious features include, gourmet food by well-known chefs, a multitude of restaurants, butler services, valet and concierge services, business and meeting facilities, multiple pools, spas, fitness centers, tennis courts and other fitness facilities. This rating is also given for hotels with elegant ambience that comes from superb architecture, exquisite interior design, tasteful furniture and beautiful landscaping. Accommodation at such hotels will feature rooms and suites, both spacious, luxurious and equipped with high-quality bedding, linens, flooring, and a wide range of amenities, high-speed interest, 24-hour room service and other services.
This same star rating system has extended beyond the hotel industry, and the rating system elevated to Seven-Stars, not for any clear cut differences with the Five-Star rating, but more to emphasize unique and ultra-lux distinctions. Take the case of The Albany – Kingsley Tower, located at the low-density luxury residential estate master planned by Megaworld Corporation, the McKinley Hill West Township in Makati. Megaworld has laid claim to Seven-Star status for this development, by providing an over-the-top experience through unique and distinctive features.
The Albany stands head and shoulders above other high-end residential developments for aesthetic reasons, namely the magnificent views of Global City and Makati, due to its iconic location right next to Forbes Park and the Manila Polo Club, and the acacia tree-lined streets and block-long mansions that make-up this private gated community. Megaworld has also ensured the top-rate iconic design of the property by contracting the world famous UK-based architectural firm, BroadwayMalyan, which will bring its trademark global architectural urbanism and design to The Albany. Unmatched privacy and security are assured with the exclusive direct elevator access from the lobby to the condominium units, as well as hotel type keycard access, that opens up to 2- to 4-bedroom suites of up to 348 square meters in floor area. There are also expansive penthouse suites featuring three-
levels of living space, framed by floor to ceiling all-glass windows and the privacy of your own outdoor infinity pool. Balconies wrap around each unit, providing magnificent views outside and access to the bedrooms, living and dining areas.
Recognizing the key role kitchens now play in home entertainment, it is no longer just a place to cook but one intended for residents to enjoy good food and conversation. Translating this pivotal purpose into tangible manifestations of upscale appearance and high performance, are distinctive and world renowned brands like high-end German Gaggenau and Bosch appliances, and Leicht Cabinets. The sculptural design and professional technology of Gaggenau, and the energy saving features of Bosch, as well as the high-quality kitchen architectural features of Leicht, go hand in hand to make kitchens the heart of these residences. Daily rituals like taking a shower will be transformed into luxury Seven-Star experiences with the provision of award-winning design pieces of Philippe Starck from Duravit and Hansgrohe for bathrooms and toilets. Master toilet and baths have double lavatory and bathtub features, and secondary bedrooms have modular closets and their own toilet and baths
All the units have the same finishes: homogenous tiles (living & dining rooms, kitchens); ceramic planks in all bedrooms; homogenous tiles (all toilets & baths); granite countertops (kitchen & all toilet & baths, except in the maid’s T&B). Units are likewise semi-furnished with split-type air conditioners, Gaggenau brand kitchen equipment such as 4-burner cooktop & built-in ventilation, as well as Bosch branded range hoods and built=in refrigerator. Leicht kitchen cabinet systems and Duravit toilet & bath fixtures (water closets, lavatories), up the ante that Hansgrohe Axor Starck and Grohe fixtures (shower head, basin mixer) and bathtubs, provide.
An outstanding water feature welcomes residents at the arrival plaza, leading visitors to a 2-level amenity deck on the 8th and 9th floors. Outside amenities include an infinity edge swim pool with fibre-optic lighting, a kiddie pool, and submerged lounge deck with bubbles, pool deck lounge, cabanas, outdoor shower areas and changing rooms. Indoor amenities showcase the fitness center, yoga room, game room, function rooms and a kiddie play area.
Among the typical features of condo living present at The Albany are Wi-Fi internet access in lounge areas, videophone security system between reception/security counter to all units, 4 high-speed interior-finished passenger elevators, fire deterrent equipment and systems, as well as maintenance and housekeeping services for common areas. 100% back-up power supply will be provided for all common areas and residential units.
But these unit features and building amenities are but half of the rationale for investing in The Albany. The other compelling reason for investing in this low-density luxury residential development is its location in Forbes Park. To be called the Manila equivalent of Beverly Hills, Forbes Park has the same air of affluence and exclusivity as its California counterpart. This comes from the acacia tree-lined streets and block-long mansions that make-up this private gated community in Makati that has been home to wealthy Filipino families and foreign diplomats since the 1940s. Two of the most exclusive membership clubs can be found here, Manila Polo Club and the Manila Golf and Country Club, with membership share prices going for P12.5 million and P42 million per individual share, respectively. Not surprisingly, the price per square meter within Forbes Park ranges from P224,820 - P411,765.
Comes the ultra-high-end township being developed by Megaworld Corporation right next to Forbes Park, McKinley West, a 34.5 hectare premium land bank, with a modern European luxury theme. This prized piece of property will be developed into luxurious residential estates, residential condominiums, a modern business district featuring an IT park and several BPO buildings, mixed-use commercial centers and international schools, all with the same tony feel as the neighbouring Forbes Park. Development will be over 10 years, at a cost of P45 billion and will provide state-of-the-art security features and first-of-its kind luxury amenities.
Ensuring easy access to key urban destinations such as The Fort, SLEX, C5 and the NAIA airports as well as the Makati Central Business District, Lawton Avenue will be expanded by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority that is overseeing the overall development of Bonifacio Global City. The unparalleled location and accessibility of McKinley West, promises to provide this “uber township,” the trademark Megaworld Live-Work-Play-Learn-Shop lifestyle concept.
