Manilla, Philippines - Construction is in full swing at DMCI Homes’ progressive, new community that’s soon to be the epitome of a minimalist-chic lifestyle: Cedar Crest.

A 3.8 hectare mid-rise tower enclave located in the company’s Taguig township development, Acacia Estates, Cedar Crest is set to represent the laidback, yet sophisticated atmosphere of one of the rising business districts of the city. Cedar Crest will soon finish construction of the first tower, Amaranth, which is already 80 percent complete. And with the reputation of DMCI Homes when it comes to delivering projects on time, the second tower, Chamomile is not far behind. Both towers are almost 100 percent sold, and the attraction is apparent as the remaining eight towers are also being bought at record speed. Out of the total 999 units of combined two-bedroom and three-bedroom homes, almost 80 percent are already sold.

The appeal can be attributed to the development’s Neo-Asian Minimalist concept – presenting the buildings and condominium units as essential spaces with a lot of design potential. The clean lines of the building, which flows inside the interior of every unit, can be considered both simple yet elegant. The style connotes a calm, relaxing, and inspiring home environment conducive to communion, discovery, and self-renewal. The goal of Neo-Asian Minimalism is to find modes of expression that denounces complexity, move towards imbuing space with a modest sense of spirituality, clarity and harmony.

This set-up is perfect for starting families – married couples and those with one or two kids who have began making personal spaces and memories for themselves. The simple set-up inspires creativity to design one’s unit, suggesting that families choose only the essential whether in furniture and appliances.

Parents whose kids have already moved out will likewise benefit from the minimalist design. They now have the option of entertaining ideas for their personal pursuits – an extra room can be used as arts and crafts space, or entertainment area.

And since the buildings are mid-rise structures (only five floors for each building, with provisions for parking at the ground floor), the buildings are low-density, relieving residents of the feeling of cramped, boxed-in spaces usually associated with condo living. And with DMCI Homes signature, single-loaded corridor layout, units open to a landscaped area, and the convenience of enjoying better ventilation and lighting.

The two-bedroom and three-bedroom units will also enjoy the view from their own balcony.

The Neo-Asian design can also be found at the themed receiving area at the upper ground floor. For added convenience, there’s a service area at the roof deck with provisions for individually metered water and electricity. A fire alarm and fire hose cabinets along corridors, provide confidence in one’s own safety.

To complement this highly-urban set-up are amenities located at the central clubhouse where various features are made available for the residents’ various lifestyle needs.

The 6,561 sqm. amenities area holds various choices for different lifestyle needs. There’s a combination of leisure pool, kiddie pool and lap pool to refresh residents no matter the season; playground, jogging paths, and a basketball court for those who enjoy physical activities; gazebos for those who wish to enjoy personal time among nature, and picnic areas for bonding with the family and friends.
