Vista Residences’ The Currency epitome of elegance, opulence


PERFECTION and grandeur at its finest.

Every inch a symbol of sophistication and excellence, property developments under Vista Residences have, over the past decade, served as a clear testament on how the company has raised the bar of excellence in prime building design and structure.

And to live up to its commitment to continuously build premium and masterfully crafted structures, Vista Residences has created the Prime Series portfolio, bringing to fore its most distinct and game changing projects to date.

“The word prime is used to single out the Vista Residences Inc.’s roster of best quality condominium developments. The Vista Residences’ Prime Series is a listing of the most skillfully engineered and exquisitely designed towers—often serving as both residential homes and business headquarters—that pepper the country’s central business districts,” Elizabeth M. Kalaw, Vista Residences’ Division Head, explained.

“Vista Residences is the condominium arm of the country’s premier property development company, Vista Land. In the decade or so that we’ve been in existence, we’ve managed to raise condominium living in the Philippines to a level found in the top cities of the world, often combining commercial and business tenants with their residences allowing their individual towers to be virtually self-contained,” Kalaw further claimed.

A product of some of the country’s best minds, projects under the Prime Series listing included those that were designed by top architectural firms and built with leading edge technology. These vertical villages, equipped with facilities and amenities suited to today’s fast paced lifestyle, have allowed residents and occupants to enjoy the optimum level of living the high life, marked by opulence, comfort and convenience. Add to that is the fact that Prime Series projects are strategically located near key institutions, transport hubs and central business districts.

To date, Vista Residences has under its Prime Series portfolio 12 towers, some of which have been completed while others are under varying stages of completion.

Architectural masterpiece

One of the projects worth noting is The Currency, touted to become the most sought-after location in the Ortigas Business District.

Rising 32 storeys, The Currency is an architectural masterpiece, a glass and steel marvel which towers over the mini metropolis conveniently bordered by key avenues in Ortigas namely Julia Vargas, F. Ortigas Jr., and Garnet—making it the “most dazzling landmark in a city of landmarks.”

“The Currency is a soaring hub of residential units and business flats that seamlessly blend enterprise with sanctuary. The vertical village comes with multiple unique enclaves for momentary escape and relaxation. A ground level commercial plaza houses retail and commercial shops and restaurants. At the 10th floor are a swimming pool, a fitness gym, and al fresco dining amidst greenery,” Kalaw added.

Features of The Currency include separate lavish lobbies for residents and office workers, meant to guarantee privacy of tenants; five levels of parking; 24/7 security; and intelligent building systems— demonstrating the intense planning and thoughtful designing that went into the creation of The Currency.

According to Kalaw, The Currency was designed by Arch Haus Asia Consultants Inc., one of the most renowned outfits in the country with expertise in creating sky-high marvels resistant to earthquakes and the gale-force winds of the typhoons that visit the country every year. This partnership dovetails with the fact that Vista Residences itself has been known for its brilliant building designs and use of sustainable building materials.

The good news is that units at The Currency will be turned over by the end of the year, which means that buyers will have to wait for only a few more months to move in.

Investment option

Realizing that a huge number of those who purchase their condominium units do so for investment purposes, Vista Residences has started to offer leasing options designed to provide proactive solutions for unit owners seeking to lease out their units, to strengthen its customers’ investment opportunities, and at the same time, to further enhance the property values and the marketability of the company’s developments.

Vista Residences is currently the only real estate company in the country to offer these leasing options namely Asset Management Service; Leasing Services Only; Serviced Suites’ and the Condormitels, an option created specifically for its “University Series” condominiums.

Asset Management Service (AMS) offers basic housekeeping and is ideal for fully furnished units with tenants looking for short-term rentals of not more than a year. Leasing Services Only (LSO) involves the usual leasing or rental of, preferably, bare units to tenants for long-term rentals.

Serviced Suites meanwhile involve choice units that are operated by the Leasing Group as “serviced apartments” with full hotel services, including staff with concierge functions. A unique concept, the Condormitels are built into condominiums located close to educational institutions belonging to what VRI has dubbed its “University Series.” Under this option, the group offers a number of units operated as dormitory-hotels.

Sustainable design

Indeed, at Vista Residences, each unit has been masterfully crafted with creative, ingenious and practical space planning, allowing owners to live their dreams and create memories of a lifetime. All units have been designed with enough space to breathe while ensuring that the designs are stylish, and the amenities, first-rate. It is where form meets function, design meets elegance, and which families can truly call their “home,” a concept central to the Vista Residences philosophy.

Vista Residences’ architects and engineers have been designing buildings that make full use of natural light and air circulation in order to reduce its carbon footprint and ensure environment sustainability.

Vista Residences carries with it Vista Land’s four decades of experience in building homes, developing properties and creating master planned communities—integrating into every project an unparalleled expertise in space planning, and flair for finding accessible and attractive locations. In addition, the company is committed to assuming a chief role in the condominium sector, creating greater awareness of their capabilities, as well as enhancing efficiencies in their resource distribution.
