Go-getters’ lair

Megaworld’s ‘creative’ tower to spruce up Makati CBD

How do you make it big in this day and age? 

For  young go-getters who want to stand out and create their own brand, this  can only mean being creative, business-minded and street-smart. 

To nail down the lifestyle of this new breed of high fliers, Megaworld is building its 28th residential development in the Makati central business district (CBD): The Ellis. 

Located at L.P. Leviste St., Salcedo Village, The Ellis will have  amenities that are designed for the modern, distinctive needs of its future residents. These include “colab” shared spaces, which is a non-conventional working space where residents can walk in, grab a cup of coffee, plug in their laptops and start working.

‘Pause and play’ room. Residents can hang out with friends while playing board, or computer games in this decidedly ‘hip’ space.
The “town hall” is a space for casual socials, intimate galas, movie showings, acoustic sessions or even art exhibits. 

And for some more down time, residents will also have an al fresco poolside experience with a splendid view of the Makati CBD skyline.

“We want to  provided a place where everything is an amenity for the creative mind,” Eugene Em Lozano, vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld Makati CBD, told The Standard at the media unveiling of the Ellis last week.  “This project won’t just be a residential condo. It’ll be an outlook for a distinctive life,mindset, and lifestyle.” 

The Ellis will have studio ( 58 units at 24 square meters each; 68 units at 34.5 square meters each); 42 units of one bedroom and 21 units of one bedroom plus studio unit configurations); and 21 two bedroom as well as 21 two-bedroom plus studio (103 square meters) configurations.

There will also be loft units in the 8th floor, with a mezzanine. 

Start of construction is expected next year, and Megaworld expects a sell-out product. 

The developer is eyeing established businesses, including start-up entrepreneurs, entry-level employees, as well as young nesters looking to invest in a modern, unconventional project where units can be linked to a main unit, then converted into a workspace, e.g. a small firm, studio workshop area, gallery or home office.
