It stands to become the archetype community of the modern urban dweller.

That the Residences at The Galleon, in a nutshell, is set to offer unmatched convenience afforded by a strategic location, the unique leverage of being part of a mixed-use project, and the luxury of exquisite finishes and upscale amenities only meant that it will be, without a doubt, well suited to meet the evolving demands of today’s frenzied pace of lifestyle.

Located along ADB Avenue, at the heart of a bustling Ortigas central business district, the Residences at The Galleon will rise 51 storeys high comprised of 509 well-appointed units of varying cuts and sizes. It is backed by Ortigas Land, whose expertise has been honed for close to nine decades, making this newest project within the Ortigas CBD your key to an integrated urban lifestyle.

Six compelling reasons will tell you why the Residences at The Galleon is already shaping up to be the most preferred, most coveted address in this district.

Only mixed-use development in the Ortigas CBD

The Galleon stands to be a unique offering as it’s the only mixed-use development to rise in the Ortigas CBD. It will be a two-tower development, one meant for office spaces, while the other will be for premium residences. A two-level retail podium will meanwhile serve as a community space in Ortigas Center with a curated selection of shops and restaurants.

Future homeowners of the Residences at The Galleon will thus be afforded the privilege and ease of being part of a complex that has practically everything you may need.

Premium location

As The Galleon rises within the most centrally located and most accessible CBD, trust that you will enjoy proximity to every imaginable destination within the metro including commercial establishments; medical, educational and religious institutions; fitness and wellness centers; massive mall complexes; as well as hotels.

Other business districts are nearby, too, thanks to Ortigas Center’s proximity to major thoroughfares. And once all the planned infrastructure projects in the metro have been completed, going to and fro The Galleon will likely be a breeze.

If you consider living here, you will undoubtedly be at the center of it all.

Luxurious offerings

The Galleon clearly spells luxury with its planned amenities, features and finishes, starting from its modern, mindful architecture, landscaped, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, and its light, airy lobby that will welcome you to your sanctuary.

At the Residences at The Galleon, future residents will get to indulge in topnotch, upscale amenities aptly designed for your pursuits of passion, creativity, excellence and wellness. Meant to enhance your daily urban lifestyle, these amenities include a mini-theater, game room, swimming pool, gym, sauna room, as well as green open spaces that would allow you to commune with nature right within the city and in the comfort of your home.

Exquisite finishes exuding that opulent vibe, smart living features that make for a seamless and worry-free living, and a state-of-the-art building management system further amplify the exceptional lifestyle that can be had at The Galleon.

Flexibility of use

What is good about The Galleon is you have the perfect opportunity to earn from this investment. You can choose to lease out your unit to those working in nearby offices such as the Asian Development Bank. What’s more is that the promising value proposition of The Galleon will make it easier for you to clinch that deal.

Investment returns

And if estimates and forecasts will prove to be accurate, what you will potentially have is a unit that could generate handsome returns for you.

Land values in Ortigas Center are forecasted to grow by 22 percent in 12 months’ time from the P337,000 per sqm recorded in the third quarter of 2019—a growth faster than the 20 percent forecast for Makati CBD, data from Colliers International Philippines showed. Average price-per-sqm of residential projects in the Ortigas Center had also grown by 6 percent yearly from 2013-2018.

For this year, land values here are projected to grow further to P410,000 per sqm, assuming that Ortigas Center is able to sustain its momentum.

Backed by stellar teams

It also pays that a seasoned developer like Ortigas Land, whose expertise has been honed by close to nine decades of building premier, sustainable communities, is behind this newest project in Ortigas. As shown in its previous developments, Ortigas Land has clearly mastered the art of creating “places for life.”

The Galleon is set to offer unmatched convenience to residents.

It’s also a plus that Ortigas Land has tapped stellar design and construction teams to work on The Galleon. The masterplanning and concept architect is Architecture International Ltd., a US-based firm providing architecture, planning and interior design services to clients globally, while the structural engineer is Magnusson Klemencic Associate, a world-class structural and civil engineering firm with close to a century of experience and projects in over 54 countries.

There really is so much to look forward to in 2025 when Ortigas Land starts the turnover of units at the Residences at The Galleon: that much coveted luxurious lifestyle befitting today’s active, passionate and hardworking urban dwellers.
