By now, the prolonged pandemic has made us realize a lot of things, foremost of which is the importance of our homes. A home is not merely a structure where we live, eat, or sleep, it has now become a multipurpose haven where we also work and study, and a refuge to calm our nerves and shield us not only from the elements but most especially from an unseen virus.

Now more than ever, homeowners and those who are now seeking homes want to live in communities that are complete, convenient, and caring. Complete simply means that all things for living, working, and playing have their allocated spaces available any time of the day, pandemic or no pandemic. 

A convenient community is accessible to essential places such as markets, hospitals, or schools. It could also be said that a convenient community is near places to ease one’s mind off the stressful news such as parks, gardens, and outdoor venues for biking and exercise.

On the other hand, a caring community is one where there is empathy from the developer. Aside from building the structure, care can be seen in the touches inside the community that promotes a better life. It may be as simple as an open space for meditation or Yoga to promote mental health, or a play area for kids to promote bonding, to as grand as a welcoming lobby or as practical as showing concern to the environment by promoting eco-friendly practices. All these show the care accorded by the developer to each resident, something that is sorely needed in these challenging times.

When we talk about complete, convenient, and caring, one project of Suntrust Properties comes to mind: Suntrust Kirana. Located in the burgeoning dynamic city of Pasig, Kirana derives its name from the Indonesian word that means “beautiful ray of light.”  The name is very apt as Suntrust ensured that this four-tower residential enclave, which has a modern Asian theme, is serene like a new morning and filled with nature, even though it is close to the modern business districts.

A grand fountain welcomes residents and guests to the community.

“We are proud of Suntrust Kirana as this is your gateway to a better life. A home for dreams and innovation, Suntrust Kirana will usher light, future, and ambition to the city center through its spacious units and amenities that complement urban living,” says Atty. Harry Paltongan, president of Suntrust Properties.

Since this neighborhood is set to rise in the middle of a city, lifestyle hubs, corporate centers, leisure and educational needs are just a few steps away from your home. This convenience will not only be appreciated during a pandemic, but as soon as education, work, and travel normalize again.

Aside from hosting four residential towers featuring 300 units that are masterplanned to be efficient  and comfortable, and specifically designed as an “ecopolis,” Suntrust Kirana has 12 commercial units, a sweeping fountain entrance, and a number of amenities that uphold sustainable living.

Swimming pool area offers relaxation options to residents.

“This community does not only promise a better life for you and your loved ones as we made sure that Suntrust Kirana is equipped with eco-friendly features to kickstart your journey to a lifestyle that’s more convenient to your needs and more caring for the world,” Paltongan added.  

Do not miss out on the chance to experience a better way of living. Units offered include a studio (27.9 and 28.5 square meters) and a two bedroom (33.8 to 37.9 square meters).  Aside from clubhouse and pools for adults and kids, Suntrust Kirana will have gazebos and gardens, activity area, water features, and retail features. Leisurely living is also possible here!

As for the convenience, going outside to get essentials is easy as there are malls and markets nearby. Suntrust Kirana is just a few blocks away from Pasig City Hall and the Pasig Public Market.

Schools such as Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig, St. Paul Pasig, Arellano University Pasig, University of Asia and the Pacific, Mint College @ Fontera Verde are all accessible and would give options to your kids once face-to-face learning is allowed.  For hospitals, The Mission Hospital Pasig, The Medical City Ortigas, St. Luke’s BGC, and Holylife Hospital are all within reach.
