MANILA, Philippines – The rise of One Lilac Place satisfies the rule of three and that is, every set of three is perfect. It completes Oriental Garden Makati, thus making it an ideal community that is stylish and convenient yet still very much affordable.
One Lilac Place houses first-class amenities while equally sharing top-drawer facilities of its predecessors, the Lotus and the Orchid Towers. Its indoor pool is a wonderful fall back for residents who wish to enjoy a good swim even on rainy days.
Parents with young children will surely appreciate the convenience of having a day care center virtually right at their doorsteps. They can also look forward to relaxing in their tower’s own game room or celebrating special occasions with family and friends in the function room. Fitness enthusiasts need not worry of waiting long for their turn in the exercise machines or sharing equipment with the entire Oriental Garden Makati unit owners because One Lilac Place has its own gym.
Unit buyers at One Lilac Place can now share the outdoor swimming pool with Jacuzzi, kiddie pool, club house with al fresco veranda lounge, landscaped deck garden, children’s play area, and fitness center with the rest of the community. Residents of the three towers can fully enjoy all the amenities provided.
Federal Land Inc. recently held a concrete pouring ceremony of Makati’s next landmark: One Lilac Place — an exquisite flower in the middle of the urban jungle. It promises an exciting, dynamic lifestyle ahead for on-the-go professionals and start-up families.
The third tower of a master-planned residential condominium development along Don Chino Roces Avenue, One Lilac Place brings out the life you’ve always wanted. The 34-storey high-rise, which is situated in the thriving urban complex of buzzing Makati, is now being offered at competitively-priced one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units, with rates starting at P7,700 per month for a fully-furnished studio unit.
At the event, Federal Land president Alfred Ty expressed confidence that the market will receive the arrival of One Lilac Place with much enthusiasm and with the same warmth as the first two towers. “With the Makati Central Business District just a short distance away, professionals and start-up families alike would surely have found here the ideal home they’re looking for without need to look for a place far from where they are everyday.”
One Lilac Place is ideal for those working in the Makati business district as there is no more need to commute for hours just to get to work. Start-up families need not worry about where to bring their children to school, for they are easily within reach.
Once completed, it will have 34 floors and a total of 509 units. Expected turnover of the units is end of 2014. Its 24-hour roving guards and state-of-the-art security system also assures residents of their safety. With their minds free of worries, they can focus on more important things in life such as their careers and family.

Living in a condo offers assured safety, strategic address, well-crafted amenities and comfortable lifestyle that are sure to match every residents needs. Living in a condo in the heart of Makati makes it even better. Work, school, recreation and relaxation are within reach. Home is never more than a short-commute away.
One of Federal Land’s pioneering condominium projects is the Oriental Garden Makati. The Orchid and Lotus towers have become a thriving community. With the Makati Central Business District just a short walk away, professionals and start-up families alike have found the ideal home they are looking for without the need to look for a place far from where they are everyday.
The Oriental Garden Makati is soon to be completed with the latest and final addition to its family, the Lilac tower. Located along Don Chino Roces Avenue (formerly known as Pasong Tamo) in Makati, the 34-storey tower will include 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units.
A sneak peek of the project’s showroom provides potential buyers and future residents the idea of what a Makati lifestyle evokes. Located at Don Chino Roces Avenue, corner Dela Rosa Street, Makati City, the showroom’s model units are designed by Corocoto SPT Furniture and Designs and Sensibly Sheik.

Thoroughly modern living
Published in News Section of Oriental Garden Makati website
Used to be the life-long dream for most Filipinos was to own a house and lot. Many still do. But for today’s generation, especially those who had to stay in a dormitory for college, a condominium unit already suffices.
And it’s not so much a downgrade, although indeed it is nearly impossible for one who’s just starting out to afford to buy a freestanding house in Metro Manila’s ever-expanding commercial districts.
Condominiums fit into today’s modern, easy and fast-paced lifestyle. It’s amazing how condo designers are able to maximize the limited space allotted to buyers, and personally I like the fact that your neighbors are just literally next to you. Moreover, attractive packages, including rent-to-own schemes, have made owning a condo a feasible goal for many. One doesn’t have to waste his money on monthly rent for something that’s never going to be theirs—and they don’t even have to make huge initial cash payments.
Those belonging to older generations naturally have their concerns. They worry about the water supply, fire, earthquakes and the fact that one doesn’t own land—much less a garden. Then there’s the fact that condos seem more suited for singles and not for growing families.
But the proliferation of condo projects these days suggests that this mindset is slowly changing. The key is to find one that has affordable payment terms, accessible to everything and, of course, one that has an established name behind it.
One like the Metrobank Group. Dr. George S.K. Ty turned his life-long passion for architecture into reality by creating Federal Homes in July 1972 to cater to the residential needs of the Filipino-Chinese community in downtown Manila. The company changed its name in 2002 to become Federal Land Inc. and now boasts of 26 landmark projects that dot the Metro Manila skyline. From the picturesque Manila Bay to the Makati business district, and even in the valleys of Marikina City and in sprawling Quezon City, Federal Land offers signature developments that have generously spaced and functional areas, stylish designs, complete amenities and vibrant communities for its residents.
One such project is Capital Towers, which played a critical role in the 2009 Metrobank Art and Design competition, which pushed the envelope for eco-friendly habitats, allowing interior designers to come up with different design possibilities. Located along E. Rodriguez Avenue in Quezon City, Capital Towers comes with a load of benefits. Its prime location means residents need not brave long commutes as it is easily within reach of top schools, hospitals, churches and other commercial establishments. Leading medical institutions like St. Luke’s Medical Center, Delos Santos-STI Medical Center and the National Children’s Hospital are within the vicinity.
Boasting an eco-friendly motif, the designers of Capital Towers utilized recycled materials such as wood blocks, glass mirrors and cut moldings. Both the one-bedroom and two-bedroom units come with ceramic tiles for the kitchen and bathrooms, teakwood parquet flooring in the living, dining and bedrooms, as well as granite countertop and laminated doors and kitchen cabinets. These quality finishes combined with floor-to-ceiling windows all provide for comfortable young professional living. After all, space management is at the heart of the development.
Aside from the elegant interiors, Capital Towers also has a dedicated property management team which makes sure everything runs properly from the fully automated heat or smoke detector system, centralized garbage disposal system and 24-hour security. The development also encourages efficient water management system for environmental sustainability.
Another project that Federal Land is about to launch is the Lilac Tower of Oriental Garden Makati. Located at the corner of Don Chino Roces and Export Avenues, it is ideal for those working in the Makati business district as there is no more need to commute for hours just to get to work. The one-bedroom unit ranges from 20.5 to 32.5 sq m and comes with a steel railing balcony, kitchen with granite countertop and modular base cabinets, ceramic tiles for the kitchen and bathroom, and painted gypsum board ceiling. The modular closet in the bedroom captures the classy space-saving urban design concept that’s perfect for the young professional.
Oriental Garden Makati also boasts a variety of amenities to spice up urban living. It has a podium garden and koi pond, swimming pool, gym and fitness center, clubhouse and multipurpose hall, and even a children’s play area and daycare center.
So who says condo living is meant only for singles?
