When you think of life in Japan, you think of the vibrant metropolis of Tokyo, the scenic mountainsides and hot springs, and cherry blossoms in spring. You may also think of the fascinating innovative technology, a rich and storied culture, and world-class cuisine. Indeed, the Japanese lifestyle is one that is evocative and immediately recognizable.
Federal Land, Inc., together with Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd., and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, Ltd., is bringing that lifestyle to the Philippines, as it aims to set a new global standard in the real estate industry through the premier four-tower residential development — The Seasons Residences at Grand Central Park.
The Seasons Residences is the country’s first residential project with a distinct Japanese concept and is located right at the heart of Bonifacio Global City (BGC), one of the country’s premier central business districts.
Grand Central Park in North BGC is a master-planned community home to the newest go-to-lifestyle district Grand Hyatt Manila, where people can live, work, shop, and dine. It is also very accessible, proximate to major highways, link roads going to Makati, Ortigas, EDSA, and transportation hubs like airports and bus terminals making it a very attractive option for those who like to be in the center of activity in the city.
BGC’s accessibility will further improve with the completion of various infrastructure projects such as the BGC-Ortigas Link Road, Mega Manila Subway, BGC-Makati Skytrain and BGC-NAIA Bus Rapid Transit.
The Seasons Residences, rising alongside Grand Hyatt Manila, is inspired by the four seasons of Japan. It is designed to fuse Filipino hospitality with Japanese efficiency, allowing its future residents to experience an elevated lifestyle at the heart of BGC.
It will bring the Japanese tradition of excellence, innovation, and artistry to the Philippines, elevating Filipino lifestyle through the introduction of Japanese technology and quality. Its architecture and design marry Japanese design, technology, and innovation with the Filipino sense of community.
The four residential towers — Haru (Spring), Natsu (Summer), Aki (Autumn), and Fuyu (Winter) — will feature Japanese design innovations and technologies to elevate your lifestyle with convenience, safety, cleanliness, and eco-friendliness.
Interest from home seekers and investors has continuously been high for The Seasons Residences since the launch of its first tower (Haru) in 2018. The third tower, Aki, is targeted to be launched in third quarter of this year.
Meanwhile, The Seasons Residences stays true to its name with an amenity floor influenced by the seasons of Japan, with the arrangement of the elements inspired by spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
A modern gym, zen garden amidst natural landscapes will evoke the fresh beginnings of spring, while the pool, karaoke room, and a game room call to mind the fun of summer. Quiet autumn is an inspiration to creativity, so a music room, reading lounge, and a business center is provided to accommodate that. Lastly, The Seasons Residences offers its authentic onsen or Japanese hot spring and spa to warm away the chilly weather.
The Seasons Residences also features a unique amenity offering called The Guest House. Inspired by traditional Japanese architecture, it will be made available for lease to relatives and friends of residents so they too can experience the lifestyle of The Seasons Residences homeowners.
Finally, at the podium of The Seasons Residences will be the first MITSUKOSHI in the country. The four-storey mall will feature well-curated selection of Japanese fashion items, food and cosmetics brands, and will highlight the Japanese way of polite service known as Omotenashi.
Touted to be the ‘next Manila lifestyle’, MITSUKOSHI aims to become the new lifestyle destination in BGC. It is designed for customers living in today’s fast-paced environment, providing new and elevated retail experiences with a merchant selection ranging from splendid global labels to the best local retail names.
A beauty section will also be one of the highlights of the mall, serving as an anchor with luxury cosmetic brands. At the center of this section will be a modern beauty store by Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, Ltd., which will offer natural and organic cosmetic brands and beauty salon service.
At the basement level will be MITSUKOSHI’s signature depachika, a haven of top-shelf Japanese food and related products. It will feature a supermarket with a wide array of treats and produce, as well as food halls of international culinary offerings.
The mall will also feature well-loved Japanese accessories and household goods to introduce modern Japanese culture.
