Location, location, location! That has always been the mantra for both property buyers and investors.

The pandemic has given new meaning to “location”. A growing number of property buyers now want to invest in a place that continues to give them easy access to business and commercial hubs, but also provides a tranquil and healthful refuge from the pace and environment of city life.

Botanika Nature Residences is designed to give buyers the best of both worlds— authentic green living in the heart of a bustling garden metropolis without straying too far from centers of livelihood and business activity. A less stressful urban lifestyle for the residents to enjoy.

Sustainable developments such as Botanika, are rising in value even now as people look for a refuge from the pandemic and prepare for life post-Covid 19 and new crises that may arise – ideal for those looking to diversify their investment portfolios. 

Wide breathing spaces. For those simply wanting a place where they can be safe and healthy while remaining productive, Botanika Nature Residences offers wide open spaces with lush greenery that spans the entire property. Residents can enjoy all that nature has to offer inside their homes and around the neighborhood.

Botanika units are generously sized – ranging from 125-345 square meters for Tower 1 and 72-375 sqm for Tower 2. The multi-purpose, flexible spaces make the new normal more convenient and less stressful. Residents can enjoy better breaks by taking a quick breather chilling in the lanai to savor the lush surroundings while working from home and their children continue online learning.

Botanika’s lush green landscapes are irresistible invitations to commune with nature to help restore one’s health and well-being. The amenities like tower atrium, pool deck and the rest of the landscaped outdoors let one enjoy fresh, clean air – a luxury in the metropolis, while the balcony that overlooks either the amenity area or the greens of Filinvest City provides a quiet space for releasing all of the day’s tensions by reading a good book or simply contemplating the beauty of nature to restore one’s peace of mind.

Unique lifestyle. High-end amenities let Botanika residents live a unique lifestyle. They can do laps in the morning or relax with a drink in the evening at the tiered swimming pool. Kids can have fun in the children’s indoor play area or do more active pursuits in the outdoor play area and treehouses.

Indoor amenities include the business center and library, a conducive area with access to a scenic view perfect for quality time spent on business, academics or quiet leisure. Botanika’s promise of a leisurely lifestyle is augmented by the exclusive access to the Palms Country Club for residents who are also club members.

Work-live-play environment. Live in a “15-minute city,” where you can get around in 15 minutes or less by walking or biking in this pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. Botanika residents can purchase their daily necessities at a nearby shopping mall, grab a quick bite at Westgate Center or Festival Alabang, or pay a quick visit to the doctor at one of the premier hospitals such as Asian Hospital. Botanika is also surrounded by pocket parks, bike trails, and jogging paths, making it easy and safe to live a healthy and active lifestyle.

Green building. Very few developers in the local upscale market can claim and boast of a high-end eco-friendly residential project like Botanika – marrying not just aesthetic and functionality but also embeds energy efficiency in its design. 

Each unit is designed to reduce energy consumption through its balcony doors and panoramic windows that provide natural lighting and ventilation for greater energy efficiency, and lower utility bills. The greeneries and trees surrounding the building can also absorb dust and other pollutants, thus providing better air quality, creating a natural cooling effect, taking residents to a whole new level of zen even in the comforts of their home.

At this time of COVID-19, when good ventilation and efficient air circulation have become important preventive measures, the design of Botanika has become a surprising but most welcome benefit.

Guaranteed return of investment. Botanika’s strategic location in Filinvest City, which makes other central business districts and new provincial growth areas in the south easily accessible, guarantees that its value will continue to rise as economic development becomes more widely dispersed. 

Botanika has strengthened its position as a green-oriented residential development, giving investors and end-users more reasons to consider the multi-awarded project. With the competitive pricing of real estate during this pandemic, investing in a property is a great way to prepare for future disruptions as real estate values appreciate over time. It is also a valuable legacy to leave one’s offspring. 

“As the post-pandemic world takes shape, there is a growing need for space that keeps people close to the center of activities while also allowing them to retreat to a sanctuary of greenery and clean air at any time to safeguard and promote their health and well-being. Botanika Nature Residences guarantee a stress-free, healthier suburban lifestyle,” said Filigree deputy head Daphne Sanchez.
