The country’s first Olympic gold medalist only deserves the best – even when it comes to her new home here in Metro Manila. So when Megaworld announced on the day of Diaz’s win that it would give her a condo in Eastwood City, what it had in mind was not just some typical box unit.

Today, Megaworld released photos of the P14-million, fully furnished two-bedroom condominium unit at the 47-story One Eastwood Avenue. This gift from tycoon Dr. Andrew L. Tan and Megaworld was specially curated by the company’s in-house interior design team. It comes complete with furniture and fixtures, as well as appliances.

In a statement, Kevin L. Tan, chief strategy officer of Megaworld and son of the real estate magnate, said: “All that Hidilyn and her family need to do is just bring their clothes and other personal effects, and they are good to stay in the unit. We are excited to welcome her and her family and loved ones to Eastwood City, particularly in this newest residential condominium tower in our first-ever township. She has brought so much pride to our country and she deserves all these rewards for her hard work in raising our flag so high in the Tokyo Olympics.”

Kevin L. Tan, chief strategy officer of Megaworld, presents to Hidilyn Diaz a commissioned charcoal painting by 21-year-old fine arts student, John Ken Gomez, which captured two images of Diaz’s historic and emotional moment at the Tokyo Olympics. 

The condo is an ideal example of Megaworld’s proposition for a balanced work-live-play lifestyle. As an owner of a condo unit, Diaz and her family can enjoy the first-class amenities of One Eastwood Avenue, which include a badminton court at the roof deck, landscaped gardens, a lap pool with pool seat jets, paved sunbathing lounge and seating area, and a bar with indoor and outdoor lounge. There are also skygardens located at the tower.

Other amenities include a kiddie pool and a wading pool, male and female shower and changing rooms, kids’ playground, children’s playroom, reflexology path and meditation garden, a Yoga and Pilates room, function rooms, an outdoor chess area, and game room.

There’s also a fully equipped fitness center — where Diaz would surely spend much time to practice her sport.

The statement from Megaworld further revealed that since One Eastwood Avenue is in a township setting, malls and commercial centers, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, banks, pet shops, retail stores, hotel, and even a church are easily accessible without driving or commuting.
