The City of Manila presents the best of two worlds—its historical aspect and its modern facet. One of the locations that best exemplifies this is Santa Ana, which is both a center of heritage and also a progressive district where business and commerce thrive.

The district of Santa Ana also features some earliest evidences of advanced social and cultural developments, which have been unearthed that dated back to around 1,000 years. During the Spanish period, affluent families chose the place to build their homes near the idyllic Pasig River. Thus, the place is known for its architecturally significant heritage, led by the Santa Ana Church, joined by Plaza Hugo, an array of historic ancestral houses, and the three-century old image of the Nuestra Señora de los Desamparados de Manila.  With these features, Santa Ana has been classified as a “histo-cultural heritage/overlay zone” by the City of Manila.

Santa Ana’s location is very strategic, too. Located in the boundary of three major cities in Metro Manila—Makati, Mandaluyong, and San Juan—the area is a wise location for many businesses, and most importantly, for residential communities. Every corner and avenue of the district has easy access to various modes of land transportation 24/7.
With Santa Ana’s history of growth and perfect mix of history and modernity, it is wise for Suntrust Properties to build a new landmark here, which is called Suntrust Ascentia.

“Now is the most appropriate time for the district to ascend even higher in progress. That’s is why we are are introducing here Suntrust Ascentia, our latest condo offering that will be a future landmark that will represent the district’s harmonious culture and modern lifestyle,” says Atty. Harry Paltongan, the company’s president.

Suntrust Ascentia features one single 36-floor tower that is inspired by the timeless buildings of the ‘70s Manila. It is envisioned to become a landmark that represents Santa Ana’s well-heeled heritage in the middle of a modern cityscape.

For the best in living, the new project will showcase a list of state-of-the-art amenities and well-crafted studio, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units all designed specifically for comfort and convenience. Historical arts and pieces will be displayed in a dedicated area to commemorate the essence of the district in terms of its glorious past.

Security is of utmost importance at Suntrust Ascentia as well, as access to residential floors is limited only to the unit owners through keycard enabled elevators.

“In terms of its architectural design, it is a seamless fusion of heritage and modernity. Inspired by the original headquarters of the GSIS in Arroceros Street, Manila, which was designed by Federico Ilustre who has worked on numerous postwar architectural structures in the country, Suntrust Ascentia will be a showcase of the city’s rich history and vibrant future,” explained Paltongan.

The 5,120-square meter condominium community is situated along New Panaderos Street, neighbored by the historic Santa Ana Church and Santa Ana Hospital. It’s just a few steps from the Santa Ana Bridge connecting it to Mandaluyong, Makati to the east, Paco and Pandacan district to the west, while its north connects to San Juan, and southeast goes to Pasig River.

Amenity area

Living in Suntrust Ascentia puts residents at the heart of everything. All of life’s conveniences are just a stone’s throw away, as the neighborhood is close to business districts, schools, universities, and leisure hubs. 

“Apart from convenience, Suntrust Ascentia also values life’s best moments within the comfort of one’s community. Proving this is a series of indoor and outdoor facilities for recreation, such as a swimming pool and a kiddie pool, landscaped garden, outdoor lounge, multi-purpose area, pool lounge, children’s playground, jacuzzi, fitness gym, and a jogging path with benches,” said Paltongan.

The tower features eight elevators, providing more comfort for those living in the higher floors. A commercial area welcomes residents at the ground floor, ushering easier access to life’s essentials.

Now in a pre-selling stage, Suntrust Ascentia combines the credibility of a trusted developer with a project in the most ideal of locations. Here, the sky is the limit for your dreams as you seek for progress in life, start a family, or bond with your loved ones—without any worries.
