The Amaryllis by DMCI Homes

Along E. Rodriguez Avenue in New Manila will rise The Amaryllis, another prime DMCI Homes project development that will pave a brand new lifestyle to its future homeowners. Gone are the days when condos are usually equated to cramped abode and bad ventilation. The Amaryllis features resort-inspired facilities, skyline views like no other and spacious unit cuts.

The Amaryllis will impress even the most particular person. Living in a resort-inspired community for its concept, surrounded with greenery for its landscape and water features is something every homeowner would want to go home to at the end of each working day.  A real haven for a young family.

The Amaryllis project also includes a Sky Park and Sky Lounge. A lovely feature that is designed to bedazzle its residents at night with access to the skyline views of the city and the breeze. No more having to drive up to Antipolo to have your regular dose of overlooking pleasure.

The Amaryllis also boasts of its very prime location. It is right smack in the middle of four major areas in Quezon City: New Manila, Greenhills, South Triangle and Cubao Araneta.  This means a great deal for residents having access to places people normally go to for entertainment, shopping and dining.  The Amaryllis is something to check out if one is considering to buy a condo within  the vicinity of New Manila.

Live life in full bloom at Zinnia Towers

After having recently awarded by DENR for Sustained Good Performance in the Implementation of Republic Act 9003 last March 6, the expectation of Quezon City residents is for their city to live up to it. A boost to the morale of Quezon City dwellers, for sure.

DMCI Homes, being the good developer that it is, is making sure that it complies with Quezon City’s commitment of green building programs. Given this, DMCI ushered in the Lumiventt Design Technology in Zinnia Towers, a new project, which is a first in the area. This project is incorporating DMCI Homes‘ signature green design that allows ambient lighting and fresh air to and fro the building. Something that is not very common in old school condominiums.

The Zinnia Towers has 2 high-rise buildings embraced by luxuriant greeneries, blending with its synchronic tropical-themed structural design. If you are looking for a Condo within the vicinity of New Manila, Quezon City, this is the one place you might want to head over and consider.


Metrosexual men

While some women can be considered “kikay,” what exactly do we call their male counterpart? Our generation happens to coin a term especially for them – “Metrosexual Men.” They even carry their own kikay kits with them. Open it up and you’ll see not just toothbrush. But cologne, gel, powder, True! But this does not imply that they are gay. Well, these are straight men, only they choose to pamper themselves a wee bit more.


The Mega Atrium Lifestyle

SM Megamall has grown so much more with the addition of the Mega Atrium, an exciting new lifestyle area in the Ortigas Center.

This niche mall within the iconic SM Megamall is located over Julia Vargas Avenue, and fully bridges the gap between Mega A and B. It has 16,000 square meters and has four levels.

With Megamall being a linear development that spans more than half a kilometer, the Mega Atrium is envisioned to be a center of respite and relaxation. Its strategic central location provides a convenient stop for mall visitors to relax and literally catch their breath while enjoying shopping at its upmarket stores and dining at specialty restaurants.
