Elevating Luxury Real Estate in Manila


This article was initially featured on Manila Bulleting on April 13, 2024 authored by Rey Ilagan.

With Manila claiming the top spot on the luxury residential property list in 2023, as reported by the London-based real estate consultancy Knight Frank, it’s no wonder high-end real estate in the country is a steadily growing segment.

The latest Prime International Residential Index (PIRI 100) showcases Manila’s stellar performance with an impressive 26.3 percent growth to claim the number one spot. Previously, Manila was 87th with a negative 1.6 percent growth. Colliers Philippines also noted that the luxury condominium market made up 34 percent of overall take-up in 2022.

One developer at the forefront is Shang Properties, recognized as the segment leader in luxury for its exquisite design, best-in-class work, and utmost exclusivity. With over three decades in the Philippine real estate industry, Shang Properties always adheres to its vision of “delivering exemplary living that is uniquely personal.”

If luxury real estate investment is on your radar, Shang Properties encompasses all the essential attributes of high-end properties, including architectural design, proximity to key destinations, amenities and facilities, and exemplary service.

Architectural and interior design

Luxury condominiums are synonymous with world-class architectural design and interior features. It’s imperative for these properties to collaborate with renowned architects, interior designers, craftsmen, creatives, and artisans.

Aurelia Residences blends the classic Italian elegance of sprezzatura with distinct Filipino design sensibilities. The grand lobby, with its graceful spiral staircase and bespoke chandelier inspired by the terno, is designed by FM Architettura. As for Shang Grand Tower, it boasts traditional Art Deco design with ornamental grills and precast moldings.

Proximity to lifestyle destinations

One key luxury of high-end properties is their proximity to lifestyle destinations like upscale shopping malls, fine dining restaurants, cultural landmarks, and more. Residents of Shang Properties enjoy prime locations in Metro Manila, providing easy access to Makati, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, Pasig, and Mandaluyong.

Laya by Shang Properties, for example, is nestled near Ortigas Center, surrounded by commercial hubs and corporate headquarters, as well as various leisure spots.

Amenities and facilities

The wide selection of amenities and facilities is a highlight of luxury properties, influencing a condominium’s appeal. Fitness centers, swimming pools, meeting rooms, play areas, and other on-site facilities enhance residents’ lifestyles by providing leisure options within the premises.

Shang Residences at Wack Wack offers world-class amenities as designed by BTR Limited Hong Kong. This enclave offers resort-inspired living with state-of-the-art fitness centers, luxurious swimming pools, and lush landscapes, all complemented by stunning views of the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club and the Makati skyline.

Exemplary service

At the heart of any property is its service, enhancing the living experience by fostering a sense of community and security among residents. Shang Properties’ commitment to exceptional service creates a unique living environment.

Horizon Homes, located atop Shangri-La the Fort, offers unparalleled luxury with personalized concierge services, round-the-clock security, and access to the hotel’s amenities, ensuring residents enjoy a truly elevated lifestyle.
