Weaving Filipino ingenuity in every detail

The Filipino lies at the heart of the premium residences curated by Shang Properties Inc., offering local homebuyers not only the finest options but also homes that resonate with their deepest values.

World standards and local values

Shang Properties forayed into the Philippine real estate landscape in 1987 with office spaces and shopping destinations that tastefully blended world standards and local values. All the acumen it mustered in those verticals, the company decided to carry over to the residential condominium market starting 2002, to wildly positive reception.

While infusing its projects with testimonies of Filipino excellence in creativity and craftsmanship, and Filipino sensibilities and aspirations in its residences, Shang Properties blazed ahead with a clear edge.

That distinct Shang signature that one gleans in the details—the little things on which Shang never fails to imprint itself—is among the reasons why its condominium offerings continue to stoke postcode envy and remain appealing to the discerning, well-heeled homebuyers today. It is a proud tradition at this point, and one that it seeks to preserve as it expands its portfolio and offers more homes.

Catering to Filipino sensibilities

Two offerings prove how keen Shang Properties is in answering to the varying sensibilities of Filipinos today.

We remain rooted in family but we also desire to set ourselves apart from everyone else. You can have either or both with Shang Residences at Wack Wack and Laya by Shang Properties.

Located in Mandaluyong City, the 50-story condominium tower that is Shang Residences at Wack Wack is designed to be a sanctuary in the city for families. It offers only 404 units, allowing for more generous cuts. These range from 81-sqm one-bedroom units to 377-sqm four-bedroom units.

The 67-story Laya by Shang Properties in Pasig City is also offering 1,283 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units (ranging from 33 sqm to 149 sqm). Inviting us to look at our residences as blank canvasses, this project wants its dwellers to nest easy and live boldly.

Strong sense of community

A joint venture of Shang Properties and Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) is meanwhile bringing to Pasig City a vertical gated village for the modern era. Haraya Residences—located at the Bridgetowne Estate, an emerging mixed-use township—is a two-tower project that celebrates how Filipinos value community life.

Nothing best reflects that than the expansive amenity deck. Buying any of the one- (60 to 87 sqm), two- (107 to 142 sqm) and three-bedroom (186 to 187 sqm) units will give you access to fine indoor and outdoor amenities that encourage dwellers to gather. Outdoor amenities that include green spaces, swimming pools, play areas and a Jacuzzi cover a total of 2,500 sqm. Indoor amenities include The Veranda, The Studio, The Library, The Lounge, The Chef’s Kitchen, The Game Room, The Viewing Room and The Gym.

Working for ‘glocal’ collaboration

Apart from delivering the Shang assurances of convenience, luxury, and capital appreciation, the three projects—Shang Residences at Wack Wack, Laya by Shang Properties and Haraya Residences—also provide a platform where international and local talents could come together.

Haraya Residences is a convergence of talents from Italy, Thailand, Hong Kong and our shores. Philippine experts also find a place to shine with the other two projects. What has come out are visions of the stylish, luxurious life that tell the Filipino story.
