    Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) and international property development leader Hongkong Land (HKL) have partnered for the Velaris Residences,  a 45-storey premium condominium development.

    Set to redefine the eastern skyline with its distinctive concrete-and-glass look, metallic bronze and rose gold façade, the building will feature an  iconic look which is a hallmark of Hongkong Land.

    A  listed property investment, management and development group, and a member of the Jardine Matheson Group, HKL owns and manages more than 850,000 square meters (sq. m.) of prime office and luxury retail property in key Asian cities, principally in Hong Kong, Singapore, Beijing and Jakarta, as well as high quality residential, commercial, and mixed-use projects under development in cities across Greater China and Southeast Asia. Among its notable projects in the Philippines are premium properties One Roxas Triangle and Two Roxas Triangle in Makati, and Mandani Bay, a premium waterfront development in Cebu.

    The Velaris Residences is the first project to be undertaken by RHK Land Corp. (the joint venture between RLC and HKL) and is the forerunner of other developments the joint venture will undertake in the Philippines. It will be launched on February 21, and is seen to transform the C5 corridor upon its completion in 2024.

    Located within Bridgetowne  in Pasig and Quezon City,

    The Velaris Residences is the  first of a three-tower development envisioned by RHK within RLC’s 31-hectare master-planned mixed-use township.

    “The Velaris Residences offers the best of two industry stalwarts – the solid track record and systems of Robinsons Land Corp. and the award-winning design of Hongkong Land – to build a landmark that will redefine the C5 growth corridor. The Velaris Residences represents a window of opportunity to invest in a luxury development in one of the most dynamic geographies in Metro Manila,” said Henry Yap, president of RHK Land Corp.

    With access points through C5 road and Ortigas and Amang Rodriguez avenues, The Velaris Residences is within easy reach of commercial establishments and offices, which gives residents numerous options for life and work integration.

    A 200-meter long bridge within Bridgetowne that crosses the Marikina River  ensures  connectivity.

    The Velaris Residences offers utmost privacy and exclusivity to its tenants, occupying an entire block that separates it from other developments. It also sits across Bridgetowne’s verdant central park.

    Amenities at The Velaris Residences complement its market’s lifestyles, and are several notches higher than those offered by similar developments in this class. Private lift lobbies—an amenity usually provided only to penthouse owners—is available for owners of two and three-bedroom units as well. For residents’ wellness needs, there is an onsen, a Japanese bathhouse suite of indoor and outdoor hot pools. For their entertainment pleasures, there is the exclusive SkyClub, consisting of interconnected spaces such as the SkyDeck, which offers sweeping views around the property.

    Each unit comes with top-of-the-line smart home technologies, such as smart digital locks, and mobile app-controlled air-conditioning and lighting. Three bedroom and penthouse units are also equipped with smart mirrors.

    Unit options include a 156-sq.m.  three-bedroom and 105.5-sq.m. two-bedroom units, as well as one-bedroom units with sizes ranging from 46 to 81 sq.m. bi-level penthouse units are also available.

    With The Velaris Residences breaking ground at C-5, the Philippines has definitely gone several notches higher as a luxury property destination in Asia.
