“Hinahanap-hanap kita Manila
Ang ingay mong kay sarap sa tenga
Mga Jeepney mong nagliliparan
Mga babae mong naggagandahan
Take me back in your arms Manila
And promise me you’ll never let go
Promise me you’ll never let go…”
…I keep coming back to Manila
Simply no place like Manila
Manila, I’m coming home
Believe it or not the song “Manila” is already 40 years old, yet its lyrics remains as current as the ever-changing city its been named after. Hate it or Love it, there really is no place like Manila, a place of history, culture, and everything that showcases the Pinoy lifestyle.
However, with the boom in population, Manila has become one crowded place, with not enough feasible residences for those who want to live in the city and explore its rich heritage sites. Middle-class families are looking to high rise condominiums as the answer, but the challenge is looking for one that is accessible to schools, offices and other landmarks.
At the heart of Manila, Taft is one distinct area that has never ceased to develop and constantly evolve with the demands of changing times, making it an ideal community, even for younger generations of urban dwellers.
The Taft district connects three major cities—Manila, Makati, and Pasay—serving as a gateway to some of the biggest commercial, business, lifestyle and cultural hubs in the metro.
As a center of everything in the metro, Taft has been thriving for decades, with throngs of people converging in the area daily on their way to nearby schools and markets, central business districts, commercial and cultural centers, and manufacturing and industrial areas.
Avida realizes the potential of Taft’s strategic location to a growing number of urbanites and has developed the Avida Towers Prime Taft in a secure community along Taft Avenue.
This masterfully-designed and well-appointed three-tower high-rise property will offer young urban professionals and their families an inspiring haven where they can kick off their activities or a restful refuge where they can relax. It will also be home to people who don’t want to spend hours in traffic to get to school, work, markets, shopping malls, hospitals, churches, and parks.
As the final leg of its development in the bustling area, Avida is set to launch the third and tallest tower of the Avida Towers Prime Taft. At 30 floors, the structure will be part of the Manila skyline as it provides residents in 865 units with inspired living right at the center of everything.
To launch this third and final tower, Avida will hold an event at the Avida Towers Prime Taft Sales Pavilion on April 30. Dubbed “Urban Places, Vibrant Spaces” the event will feature Old Manila Walks’ Ivan Man Dy as he does an interactive talk highlighting Manila, Makati and Pasay. The talk will be based on a specially-curated MAPA Prime Manila map to showcase the vibe of the property’s unique location and offer different perspectives on the best of urban living, owing to the development’s proximity to three major cities.
Urban dwellers can discover “hidden gems” within Manila which highlights the modernity, heritage and urban culture of the community surrounding Avida Towers Prime Taft. These best-kept secrets include the Museum of a History of Ideas in UP Manila, the Avellana Art Gallery and a fashion gallery of Project Runway’s Jojie Lloren inside the Hotel Henry Manila, and an ancestral house of National Artist for Architecture Pablo Antonio.
