Manila, Philippines - With location still a key consideration for individuals and families looking to buy a house, “vertical communities” address the needs and realities while providing new ways of living for many middle-income Filipinos. The country’s emerging major real estate player, DMCI Homes, has been steadily creating middle- to high-rise communities in accessible areas, utilizing efficient construction technologies while ensuring an upgraded quality of life for their residents.

Large populations choosing to stay and live in urban centers (where workplaces, educational institutions, and entertainment centers are clustered) have resulted in limited housing options. Even as the middle-income segment is willing to allocate hard-earned pesos for a well-valued property, living with extended families or renting cramped quarters has become common.

As recent years brought new challenges and new solutions in the field of residential development, DMCI Homes began making its mark through the development of themed condominium communities.

DMCI Homes allots 60 percent of the total land area for open spaces. The dream of a wide lawn enjoyed by just a single family has been adjusted to current realities, which means that in DMCI Homes condo neighborhoods, land portions are efficiently maximized into sprawling and lush common areas that provide places to mingle, play, stretch out, and relax, while still providing privacy and security for its residents.

Condo units in DMCI Homes projects provide a balcony view of the city skyline and of verdant nature within and outside the community like in Rosewood Pointe.

Fully aware that the temperate weather in the Philippines is an attraction for other nationalities and is something that Filipinos abroad miss about home, it was vital for DMCI Homes to remind Filipino families of our country’s relaxing tropical climate. The Lumiventt design technology, which is a proprietary construction feature in most DMCI Homes’ high-rise properties, honors the essence of the tropics because it allows natural light and ventilation to flow virtually unimpeded inside the condominium. This is no insignificant feat for a builder-developer, because incorporating Lumiventt in recent and future developments means sacrificing about six units per floor to accommodate interior open spaces.

Condo units in DMCI Homes projects provide a balcony view of the city skyline and of verdant nature within and outside the community, while design features and amenities like pools and high-ceiling lobbies echo the tropical vibe. Hotel-like provisions have been integrated into the developments, including round-the-clock security and controlled gated access service, and concierge-level personalized service.

With condo communities that evoke and embrace the tranquil spirit of the tropics, families will no longer feel the need to escape to some faraway place to feel close to nature and unwind from daily stresses. Unit buyers have a choice from ongoing resort-inspired developments such as Cedar Crest and Royal Palm Residences in Taguig, Magnolia Place in Tandang Sora in QC, East Raya Gardens in Pasig, Flair Towers and Tivoli Garden Residences in Mandaluyong, La Verti Residences on Taft Avenue, Illumina Residences in Sta. Mesa, Ohana Place in Las Piñas, Siena Park Residences in Parañaque, and Rhapsody Residences in Muntinlupa.

DMCI Homes is the country’s premier triple A builder-developer that brings serviced, themed communities within reach of urban families who once had limited residential options but still aspire to achieve a comfortable, enriching quality of life proximate to their place of interest.
