Property giant Megaworld is building its third residential condominium inside the 34-hectare The Upper East township in Bacolod City, the firm announced yesterday.
The 14-storey One Manhattan will boast of many “first-in-Bacolod” amenities such as a wall climbing facility, putting green, mini track oval with gym, and outdoor Jacuzzi at the second level amenity deck, and an exclusive bar and lounge at the tower’s roofdeck, overlooking Bacolod’s cityscape, the Negros mountains in the east, and the amazing sunset on Guimaras Strait in the west, a Megaworld press release said.
On top of these, the tower will also have its own private dining room, adult and kiddie pools, pool deck with an outdoor shower area, game and entertainment room, function hall, reading nooks, outdoor seating areas, and an outdoor children’s play area, it said.
The entire amenity deck as well as the main lobby will also be powered with WiFi internet access for the convenience of its residents.
Located at the corner of Manhattan and Lexington Streets, One Manhattan offers 260 units ranging from studio (up to 33 square meters), one bedroom (up to 85 square meters), two bedrooms (up to 112 square meters), and three bedrooms (up to 153 square meters), the press release said.
The one, two, and three bedroom units have various layout choices, including bi-level garden units as well as loft units with either lanai or balcony, it said.
“This is our first residential development in Bacolod with more generous unit layouts and sizes, as well as generous unique amenities. Our loft units are first of their kind because we hope to give the best for Bacolod,” Jennifer Palmares-Fong, vice president for sales and marketing of Megaworld Bacolod said.
The new residential tower will have two levels of basement parking facilities, with its own drivers’ lounge at Basement 1.
Slated for completion in 2025, One Manhattan is expected to generate P1.6-billion in sales.
It is also expected to create 600 jobs during its construction phase.
Since the launch of the first residential condominium development in The Upper East in 2018, prices of condo units in this township have already appreciated by 40 percent, the press release said.
Aside from residential towers, The Upper East, which is strategically located near the Bacolod Government Center and the city’s top universities, will also have a lifestyle mall and commercial centers, office towers, hotel, open and green parks, church, transport hub, and an eight-lane main avenue that connects the city’s Circumferential Road to Lopez Jaena Street, among others, it said.
The township will also be adorned with several iconic architectural and art structures, the press release added.*
