Illumina Residences Manila By DMCI

A massive but beautifully erected residential building is standing in the concrete jungle of Manila, the illustrious Illumina Residences. This T-shaped high-rise residential condo development is another first in terms of ingenuity from the master builder, DMCI Homes.

The property is situated along V. Mapa corner P. Sanchez Streets, Sta. Mesa, Manila. This location is also one of the so called "university belt areas" of Manila, where all sorts of educational institutions could be found. A land development where space and amenity area out spaced the base area of the main building, giving its residents more ground space for more functional amenities and breezy environment. The single building stands at 32-strorey where the total land area is 6,935.50sqm, more than 50% of this is dedicated to space and amenities.

The tower has a total 586 residential units with sizes ranging from 28.50 to 82sqm in 3 different types such as the Studio, 2-BR and 3-BR units. Each unit is designed and built through 60 years of DMCI Homes' mastery, the company certified as a Triple A builder and developer.

The building has landscaped atriums every 5 floors allowing fresh air to flow around the structure. It has also 3 high-speed elevators servicing all floors, CCTVs for added security, provision of balcony in all units, well-maintained perimeter wall, single-loaded corridors and a Grand drop off, among other building features.

Functional amenities include a hotel-like lobby, lap and kiddie pools, pool deck, shower area, fitness gym, deck garden, tree court, basketball court, study room, function hall, pocket gardens, Sky Park, view deck, arrival court and so much more. The perimeter is secured 24/7 where guards roam around at any given time. The entrance gate is one of the grandest among the industry and it is well-guarded by highly-trained personnel. There is also Wi-Fi provision in amenity areas. So, whether you relax or play, you remain safe anytime and connected to the world at the same time.

The Don Bosco School is in front of the site while other schools such as JRU, Arellano University, Central Colleges of the Phil., PUP Manila, ERDA, Immaculate Heart of Mary College, Dominican College and more learning centers are within close proximity.

The Lourdes Hospital, Unciano Hospital and UERM Memorial Medical Center are within spitting distance. Shopping and entertainment centers thrive within the area like SM Sta. Mesa, Fernando's Supermarket, SM Centerpoint and Agora Public Market, among others.

The Illumina Residences does not only illuminate your path to success, it also brings you hope of clean and healthy living within the city. Just as the name Illumina suggests, this brilliant architectural structure symbolizes light & wisdom but needless to say, it is also an instant hideaway place from the cruelty of this concreted jungle called metro life. Illumina Residences Manila is a DMCI project standing tall on a 6,935.50 square meter prime lot at the corner of V. Mapa and P. Sanchez Streets in Sta. Mesa, Manila. It is structure that serves as home to nearly 600 families who want to enjoy life to the fullest right within the heart of the metropolis minus the tailings of air and noise pollution. This 32 storey building provides vertical residential house in condominium settings with amenities equal to that of a Class A hotel or resort.

DMCI is known for 3 things in the real estate business: (1) It is one of the pioneers; (2) Known for its unparalleled construction quality, and; (3) it is popular for generously providing first class amenities in almost ALL of its residential projects. Gladly, Illumina Residences Manila is a DMCI project. It bears with it the strength, credibility and the generous provision of resort-like amenities like no other competitor can come close. Indeed, DMCI remains a leading real estate developer in Asia.

V. Mapa and P. Sanchez Streets in Sta. Mesa, Manila are both busy and relatively important streets because of the density of schools, government offices and other edifices close to them. The two streets used to carry the extended university belt nametag due to the number of academic institutions closed to it but for a period of time it died down a bit.

Illumina Residences Manila offers several residential units with areas ranging from 28.50 to 82 square meters. Studio type residential spaces with 2 and 3 bedrooms are available. Its T-shape tower shape is strategic for air exchange providing better ventilations throughout the entire tower. This unique tower shape provides equal chances for spaces to enjoy sunlight so as to minimize power consumption each month. The upper residential part of the tower have single loaded corridors thereby allowing each residential space to have a better view of the Manila Skyline at night. What a priceless experience to enjoy with your family.

Beyond the definition of housing and residential spaces, Illumina Residences is a real community of peace loving families who want to enjoy the Metropolis life without the common noise and the cruel smell of the burning carbon from massive smoke emissions. The residential place above the grounds is a sudden retreat from all of the environmental adversaries of Metro Manila. What is striking about this community is that about half of the total land area of the place is dedicate for ground amenities and mini-parks which creates the aura of a true natural park from within. The entrance and the widely grass carpeted lawn is a perfect replica of an open rural space where the growing green grasses serve as the perennial matting of the seamless space. It is truly amazing to know that in minutes you are there stucked in the middle of the traffic and for the next few minutes, you are instantly relieved of the cool environment with the perfect resemblance of an provincial community. This is indeed truly amazing.

Illumina Residences is fairly priced within very affordable range, this would certainly allow hardworking middle class Filipino families to afford a much decent and a much cleaner environment that they can truly call “home”. This place is ideal for couples who want to start up with their own family; also perfect for growing families with small children to protect from pollution; evenly perfect for expats and young professional who want to have a private space to stay after work. We are equally inviting all Filipino Overseas Workers who may want to enjoy their retirement in the metropolis with a much healthier and safer home.
