Embracing the allure of Southern living

There’s a certain charm to living in the South that most families are unable to resist.

In fact, more and more young families have started embracing the appeal of Southern laid-back living, a vibrant contrast compared to the congested and chaotic hubbub of Metro Manila’s concrete jungle.


Well-recognized as a sanctuary of tight-knit communities thriving in nature, the southern outskirts of the city boasts fewer buildings and rather more vivacious landscapes promising of fresh air; a dream destination for city dwellers seeking refuge at the end of an exhausting day.


Recognizing the growing demands for higher quality modern Southern living, Rockwell Primaries intends to provide aspiring homeowners an unparalleled laid-back suburb lifestyle with their latest development, East Bay Residences.


Conveniently located along East Service Road in Sucat, Muntinlupa, East Bay Residences is nestled in a 6.5 hectare residential space along with the former Tribeca Residences, wherein property management of the buildings are under the Rockwell Property Management Corporation.


“We want to be the gateway to Metro Manila in the southern part of Luzon. East Bay Residences is very accessible and everything you will possibly need is located close by,” said Senior Marketing Manager Cherrie Cruz.


Aside from nearby malls, top-notch schools, hospitals and exclusive residential villages, she noted that the business districts of Makati, Bonifacio Global City can easily be reached through the Skyway in Alabang and SLEX. NAIA terminals are also highly accessible, along with destinations in Sta. Rosa, Laguna and Batangas.


As an amalgam of the modern convenience of city living and the trademark relaxed atmosphere of the South, East Bay Reidences is a seamless fusion of distinct character assuring only the finest quality of family living.


“In terms of development, we tried to incorporate what the Southern market is used to in terms of home and community,” Cruz said. “We tried to imbibe that at East Bay Residences by maintaining open and sprawling spaces, and integrating pocket gardens inside the building.


Cruz added that the project even puts more focus on nature rather than structure in its 60:40 ratio of open spaces to residential ones.


Young families or any home-seeker looking for their own southern space should definitely consider East Bay Residences’ upcoming development, the Fordham Tower. Soon to be standing 15-storeys high, the low-density condominium has only 22 exclusive units per floor, ranging from 44 square meters to 98 square meters.


Sporting a modern tropical building architecture, Fordham Tower’s façade fully utilizes the serene ambiance of the south with homely wooden finishes and green landscaping. Inside the property, calming garden atriums are located at the seventh and 12th floors, while floating corridors and a skylight from the roof deck fleshes out the ambiance of the great outdoors indoors.


Starting families or newly-weds can set their sights for the one-bedroom unit (44 sqm to 46 sqm priced at 3.1m to 5.4m), which already includes a den and a balcony.


Larger and more established families can consider going for the two-bedroom unit (70 sqm to 73 sqmpriced at 6.3m to 7.8m) or the three-bedroom unit (98sqm priced at 8.5m to 10m). Apart from a maid’s bedroom and a storage area, both the two-bedroom and three-bedroom units are equipped with a common and a master’s bathroom.



A thriving community


Homeowners at East Bay Residences can expect expansive open green spaces in a secure, gated and pedestrian-friendly community.


Children can frolic freely across the compound and families can enjoy several outdoor amenities such as: a 25-meter lap pool, an adult pool, a kiddie pool, gazebos, pavilions, a barbeque area, a playground, a multi-purpose court, a jogging path, a clubhouse and a gym.


Similar to Rockwell Land’s Estate Property Management Service which takes care of their own enclave of roads, security and common areas, Rockwell Primaries offers the same treatment, with an exclusive estate management service, that guarantees a secure, serviced community so that homeowners don’t have to worry about a thing.


As part of completing Rockwell lifestyle experience, a three-storey community retail row is expected to provide convenience and entertainment to homeowners of East Bay Residences and neighboring communities. Located adjacent to East Service Road and within walking distance of the property, the retail area will feature a supermarket, bank, cinema and various top dining establishments.


“We definitely want to answer the basic needs of communities in the area as the closest establishments are currently a couple kilometers away,” Cruz said. “This way we can provide residents with the entertainment and the bonding experiences that all families yearn for without having to travel further away.”
