Sanctuary in the heart of the city

Rising in a heritage-rich neighborhood is a green breathing space that will soon afford urban dwellers a rare luxury of space and wellness right in the heart of the city.

The 50-story sanctuary, which will be built within a residential enclave in Barangay Wack Wack, Mandaluyong City, will be offering future residents prime leisure facilities that evoke a strong “resort” feel, alongside the stunning, sweeping views of lush greenery in a well manicured golf course.

Indeed, much can be expected of the newly launched Shang Residences at Wack Wack, a resort-inspired residential property that centers on exclusivity, peace and quiet, as well as connectivity.

The Shang Residences at Wack Wack will be built on a 3,361 sqm lot, will rise in a landmark district that serves as an important hub for business and lifestyle, with prestigious schools and universities, world-class medical facilities and top shopping and entertainment centers located within a two-kilometer radius.

Its strategic location allows for easy and leisurely travel to and from key cities, including San Juan, Pasig and Makati. Major thoroughfares are likewise easily accessible, so even Quezon City and Manila are a quick drive away.

A unique selling point is the fact that residents can readily enjoy the expansive views of the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club, and exclusive leisure complex with two 18-hole championship golf courses, private villas and a colorful 88-year history. Residents can relish priceless views from their home ever day, while avid golfers will surely love having their beloved courses so near.

“Shang Residences at Wack Wack is located across the iconic Wack Wack Golf and Country Club. The views are unbelievable— can you imagine waking up to that vista every morning? The view alone is priceless. But more than that, this will also have the signature quality of a Shang Properties residence,” said Shang Properties marketing director Milen Treichler.

“We’d like to think that as we develop, we get better with what we do. We noticed our particular market would appreciate space. That’s why we said that for this development, our smallest cut will be a one-bedroom unit. At the same time, we cant to give them amenities and beautiful views that are not like your typical condo in a concrete jungle. Here, we will give them peace and quiet even if they’re in the middle of Metro Manila,” she said.

Treichler noted that their units are well designed and spacious, with cuts ranging from a one-bedroom to a four-bedroom unit. Sizes meanwhile will start at 81 sqm for a one-bedroom unit. On offer are 460 units, equivalent to having an average of 10 units per floor— thus giving residents exceptional privacy and exclusivity.

Residents of one-bedroom units will have the Makati skyline as their view while the bigger cuts will enjoy the breath-taking vista of the course. At a certain height, one might even get a glimpse of the Manila Bay.

Prices are yet to be announced. But according to Susan Lee Yu, sales director for Shang Residences at Wack Wack, prices may roughly average ₱ 250,000 per sqm.

Treichler also pointed out that their amenities are best in class in the country— from its resort-style swimming pools, landscape gardens, play areas for children, a mini theater, a homey pavilion, fully equipped gym, to its good-sized multifunction rooms, all located within a 2,800-sqm expanse.

Although the amenity area can be quite compact, it focuses more on the quality of the amenities, and how these features allow one to live a more balanced, holistic lifestyle.

For Shang Residences at Wack Wack, all these amenities are meant to create a resort-inspired environment, in order to provide that private, sanctuary feel to the project, where once can relax and rejuvenate at the end of a long, tiring day in the urban jungle.

It’s probably also the reason why Shang Properties decided not to include commercial area within the development, which is a usual feature in many condos. This, according to Treichler, was meant to value the privacy of the Shang Residences buyers.

While the trend in the local real estate is to bring your home right within the hustle and bustle of the city,  The Shang Residences at Wack Wack is bringing its buyers to a different, more relaxed setting without needing to stay too far from the business districts.

Thus, this project caters largely to the usual buyers of Shang Properties— the high level businessmen and executives and their families, and practically anyone who recognizes the value of privacy, exclusivity, and quality, which are the trademarks of any Shang residence. Future residents will be able to enjoy all these as soon as the project is completed, the target being 2023.

With their top-tier amenities, views and prime location, the Shang Residences at Wack Wack truly is a place that discerning professionals and families will not only call as their home, but their true sanctuary in the city as well.
