Four other projects — U.N. Gardens, Adriatico Gardens, Suntrust Parkview, and Suntrust Solana — enhance the city’s skyline  

The emergence of business districts all over the National Capital Region has not deterred the City of Manila to stand out and be the center of commerce, tourism, and leisure. After all, there is no city in the country that can rival Manila’s historical tapestry — from its discovery during the Spanish times, the rise of trading centers such as Binondo and Divisoria, and now with the improvement of its tourism landmarks and public spaces. It is no wonder why Manila is also considered as “home,” either as permanent place of residence or as a transient address for students, workers, and even expats. As the heart of NCR, the location of Manila makes destinations on all directions accessible and easy to reach. But why go far when everything you need is located in the city, or in this case, your own community built by Suntrust Properties?   

Suntrust Properties has five developments in Manila, which includes the newest soon-to-rise tower located in Sta. Ana district called Suntrust Ascentia.  

“We built Suntrust Ascentia with the goal of providing Manileños with a higher standard of quality urban living.  Sta. Ana is not only a historical district but also a hotspot for commerce and industry. Thus, this is the most ideal place to build our new project, which is inspired by heritage yet driven by modernity,” said Atty. Harry Paltongan, president of Suntrust Properties.

This modern contemporary tower is envisioned to rise as a landmark that represents Sta. Ana’s timeless beauty and elegant heritage. Inspired by the Filipino traditional motifs of the ’70s, this 5,210-square meter condominium community showcases state-of-the-art amenities and well-crafted studio (20.6 to 26.9 sqm), two-bedroom (38.6 to 47.75 sqm), and three-bedroom units (57.2 to 59.6 sqm) designed for comfort and convenience.  

Future residents will appreciate the wide array of indoor and outdoor facilities. With these, they will never run out of activities to enjoy with the family.

Amenity area

“We are proud of Ascentia’s location along New Panaderos Street. It does not only bring residents closer to their needs, but they are near important landmarks, such as the Santa Ana Church and the Santa Ana Hospital,” said Paltongan. “There are also schools, banks, malls, and markets nearby.”

The location is also in the boundary of three different cities: Makati, Mandaluyong, and San Juan. Accessibility therefore is not a problem as residents can easily go to multiple business hubs and even to the busy districts of Taft and Quiapo, the University Belt, and Sta. Mesa.

Amenity garden

Residents do not need to go far as amenities inside Ascentia are enough to entertain the whole family. Leisure amenities include adult and kiddie pools, landscaped garden, outdoor lounge, children’s playground, jogging paths, among others. Inside the tower, there is a fitness gym, function hall, daycare, and reception lobby. 

“For those who plan to have a practical investment especially in this pandemic, Ascentia is a wise option. An investment in a unit would surely have a high rental yield because of the strategic location and valuable amenities,” said Paltongan. 

More options in the cityProjects of Suntrust Properties are located all over Manila, giving homeowners accessibility and, if they want additional income, investment opportunities.

There is the U.N. Gardens launched in 2003. It is a gated community of one-to-two bedroom condo homes located along U.N. Avenue.

Launched in 2008, there is Adriatico Gardens, a three-tower project located in the heart of Manila. This project features all the amenities and comforts of urban living in high-class condominiums. 

The developer is also proud of Suntrust Parkview, which was launched in 2009 in Ermita. This high-rise six-tower premier residential community is a walk away from the city’s key businesses, leisure, and education hubs. 

Another project in Ermita is Suntrust Solana, which was launched in 2014. This two-tower condo community is also very accessible and a walk away from major transportation hubs, making it an enviable location for students and workers.  

Suntrust Properties’ mark in Manila City is significant as it has provided a roof on the heads of hard-working Manileños. It continues — and strengthens — its mission of providing quality and affordably priced homes for Filipino homebuyers with the rise of Ascentia. Suntrust Properties is a 100 percent wholly-owned subsidiary of Megaworld Corporation, a company under the umbrella of Alliance Global Group, Inc.
