While majority of our Catholic faithful, including me, is enjoying God’s grace and powerful reminders, (a.k.a. Pope Francis Fever) brought by the Philippine visit of Pope Francis, allow me to post some pictures and updates on another grace, this time Grace Residences in Taguig Cityof SMDC.Digging back, my last update was almost a year ago wherein only Tower 1 (Orchid) has started to take shape and Tower 2 (Lily) is still just a few floors high.
Oh and in case after reading this and seeing the pictures, you find the project interesting and worth considering, I’m helping my friend sell her unit. You may find details here.
Got some time during the Christmas break to take a detour coming from a day trip in Batangas, headed Northbound via C-5 and I must admit that it surprised me to see the Lily Tower now very much visible from C-5. Naturally it got me excited and with 2015 now in full swing, 2016 turn-over is just around the corner. I really hope so.
Here’s what Tower 1, Orchid Tower, now looks like. Exterior is almost done and I think the construction is now focused more on the interiors, such as piping, electrical wiring etc. This building will contain most of the parking space for the 4 towers, plus a commercial area at the ground floor, and a few residential floors on top.
Another angle of the Orchid Tower.
Below is the Lily Tower (Tower 2) now and I think it has already reached the basic foundations of the top floor (mid-rise at just 20 floors). Of course there will be more furnishings necessary for this tower compared to Orchid since it has more floors, and it shall be fully residential (unlike Orchid which has multiple floors for parking spaces). Oh and I can already see my unit on the 12th floor!
Beside Lily Tower to the right of the picture is Tulip Tower (Tower 3) which has reached perhaps around construction of its 10th floor.
Here’s a more complete angle of the Tulip Tower, taken from the main driveway of the condominium grounds.
The space in between Tulip Tower and Orchid Tower will house the last tower, dubbed as Violet Tower. From our vantage point, it seems that construction has not yet started for Violet Tower. Or maybe some diggings for the foundations which we can’t see from the surface.
Based from the sales agent manning the Grace Residences showroom on-site, expected turn-over of Orchid Tower is 1H16 while Lily Tower is towards end of 2016. That means timelines have moved around 6 months later compared to initial timelines provided 2 years ago.
Will be finishing the 20% amortized down payment at 0% by Dec2015.
