Spaces for living and learning in Malate

Students and medical professionals near Malate, Manila have a new premier space where they can live and learn. 

Premium university residences developer Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation recently broke ground for the 45-story Torre Lorenzo Malate Premium Residences on Malvar Street in Malate, Manila. The property is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2021.

“We are excited to be part of this movement to rediscover the old world charm that only Malate offers,” declares TLDC chief executive officer Tomas Lorenzo. 

LIVE AND LEARN. Torre Lorenzo Malate Residences provides a premier residence for students and professionals where they can live and co-exist with others.
Strategically located in the heart of Malate, the property is a short five-minute walk to the University of the Philippines School of Medicine and across St. Paul’s University Manila Campus. It is also near medical centers, including Philippine General Hospital, Manila Doctors Hospital, and Medical Center Manila, as well as shopping malls Robinsons and SM Manila. The nearest LRT station is less than a kilometer away. 

The TLDC chief says, “It is true that it is a busy area, with easy access to commercial establishments and mass public transport, but the Malvar neighborhood itself is relatively quiet and safe, making it an ideal place to live for both students and medical professionals.” 

The development features design inspired by old, pre-war Malate. TLDC design partner Ivy Almario of Atelier Almario says, “Guests will experience a hip yet nostalgic place where spaces are both friendly and with hints of an elegant, bygone era.”

A swimming pool and other health and recreation facilities are available in TLDC’s Malate development.
 But what makes Torre Lorenzo Malate the best choice for students and medical professionals is the thoughtful attention to design and the added facilities and amenities that allow for study time and collaboration. 

Wi-Fi-enabled study pods, study areas, and collaboration spaces co-exist with living and social areas. In addition, cafés and restaurants on the ground floor and lounge areas in the library all support the social nature of learning.

“The intersection where people and place can come together is where possibilities for learning best take place. Effective learning spaces are not only those that are functional, but are comfortable, attractive, and flexible, which is brought to life in part by the design and overall spirit of these places,” enthuses Lorenzo. 

Torre Lorenzo Malate Premium Residences is the result of TLDC’s focus to revolutionize the university student’s quality of living by responding to their—and their parents’—physical, social, and emotional needs. 

Students come home to furnished apartments with modern kitchens, private bathrooms, and inspiring living spaces. Health and recreation facilities include a gym and a swimming pool. A 24/7 security system affords peace of mind not just for the building’s residents but for the parents. Residents can also expect the support of a dedicated property management team that is responsive to their property concerns.

Study and collaborate in the designated study areas.
 “The residential experience is what helps link students to the greater university community and likewise helps to foster a greater sense of confidence, engagement, and independence,” concludes Lorenzo.
