The Signature in QC New condo converges positive feng shui elementsDate: February 6, 2015
A new distinct vertical development blending auspicious design and practical living space will soon rise in the rapidly growing urban landscape of Quezon City.
The Signature, a residential project being put up by Filinvest Premiere, the upscale arm of property giant Filinvest Land Inc., will soon rise on a one-hectare property along A. Bonifacio Ave. in Quezon City and will combine “old-town sensibilities and modern amenities.”
Inspired by Beijing’s Summer Palace, The Signature offers 60 percent of its area to green open spaces, said Filinvest Land senior vice president Steve Chien.
“Rarely do we find a residential vertical development that devotes 60 percent of its land area to green open spaces. Truly a blissful community, The Signature offers residents and guests large indoor and outdoor amenity areas that promote an upscale, relaxed lifestyle,” he said.
He said through The Signature, Filinvest wants to provide an environment that lets residents rejuvenate at the end of a long day at work or in school.
For one, there is a Signature Lake, consisting of resort-style, Olympic-sized lap and wading pools.
The high-rise project with three towers will also have a two-level podium commercial hub for its residents.
More importantly, The Signature’s auspicious design – from the units and the master plan to the architectural design and green open spaces – has good feng shui inside and out, feng shui master Hanz Cua told The STAR in a recent interview.
“Good feng shui equals to good energy. The Signature has the positive feng shui elements, which ensure that the property increases its value in the future,” said Cua.
“Inside, there’s very calming energy. Your house should be higher than the front part. In feng shui, the main door is important,” he said.
Furthermore, he said there must be a balcony so that there is space for relaxation.
“The living room must be relaxing. It’s also important that the main door must be solid. The dining table must have mirror so it doubles the effect of the food, which symbolizes wealth,” said Cua.
He said The Signature’s exterior design already nurtures good feng shui.
“The curved panel details highlighting the exterior architectural designs of The Signature inhibit bad feng shui energy also known as the ‘sha chi’ to come in. Good feng shui promotes energy and good health to homeowners,” he said.
Furthermore, he said the architectural design of The Signature promotes the use and flow of natural light that illuminates the unit.
“Thus, creating good feng shui energy, which is the bright, refreshing, uplifting, beneficial to your health and well-being,” he said.
There is also enough space for the residents to fix their units.
“Two bedroom units typically measure 87 square meters, while three-bedroom suites are typically sized 125 sqm.,” he said.
In a separate interview, Marjorie Siao, Filinvest Land’s niche market management group head, said the company has already started construction and expects to deliver in the next two years.
“We can deliver it the next two years. When we turn over in the next two years some of the amenities are already usable. We also have a small commercial area.
The commercial is more for the residents. It’s not a large commercial space but enough to provide you with your needs,” she said.
Construction will start this year, with delivery slated as early as 2016. There will be three towers with a total of 348 units ranging from two- to three-bedroom units. The two-bedroom units start at P9 million while the three-bedroom spaces start at P14 million.
Siao also said it is a low-density community with only eight to nine units per floor.
Indeed, Siao said The Signature is more than just a home as it represents a convergence of everything a community should be.
It is in close proximity to Banawe, considered as the Chinatown of Quezon City, and is a short distance to the Guatama Chinese Temple as well as to the Sto. Domingo Church.
With its good feng shui, The Signature is a good place to live in, said Cua.
“Living at The Signature will attract prosperity. If you want your money to grow, you should live in a place where your neighbors are wealthy also. That’s feng shui. That’s positive energy,” he stressed.
