Zen living in the heart of Ortigas

It’s easy to fall in love with the way of Zen, especially during these uncertain times. It is about simplicity, finding ways to meditate to cope with the chaos of everyday living. 

Zen living in the heart of Ortigas

“The Japanese have a distinctive style of form, shape, and tradition, carried down through the ages,” revealed Paul Tange, chairman of Japanese architectural firm, Tange Associates.  ”In our firm, we inject simplicity to provide living and working spaces for self-discovery, personal growth, and relaxation.” 

Stand high 

This type of serene living stands high in the heart of Ortigas Central Business District (CBD). With Tange Associates as its design consultant, The Grand Midori in Ortigas, developed by Federal Land Inc., features Japanese aesthetics that exhibit the “height of Zen living.” 

The Grand Midori Ortigas is situated in a 5,090 square meter prime property. It is a two-tower condominium that houses 908 units that will be a mix of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom variations. 

Interiors and landscape take inspiration from the Japanese concept of ‘wabi-sabi’ and ‘miyabi’ that focuses on the discovery of beauty in imperfection and expression of elegance and refinement. 

 “When we work on design, we consider how to incorporate the individual style and personality into the architecture,” said Tange. “Of course, we prioritize comfort of the people who will use the space in all our architecture, whether residential or commercial.” 

Dynamic district

Federal Land chose to redefine the skyline of Ortigas Center with The Grand Midori Ortigas as it sees the area as a dynamic central business district. 

Ortigas is accessible via major thoroughfares: there is Ortigas Avenue from the north, EDSA from the west, C-5 Road from the east, and Shaw Boulevard from the south. 

The Grand Midori Ortigas is located at Exchange Road corner Jade Drive, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. It rises directly in front of Tektite Towers, a well-known office tower.
