7. Acqua Private Residences
The Country's first residential eden.
Acqua is the product of our long and painstaking research into the ultimate experiences yearned for by the global citizen in a modern home. We've found the answer in the reinterpretation of a nature-infused backdrop—of none other than the astonishing tropical rainforest—into a residential masterpiece that is replete with endless possibilities for a quiet reprieve or exhilarating leisure.
And perhaps one of the best qualities of this project is its location, which happens to be on a point where two powerful cities meet: Makati and Mandaluyong. This remarkable location also speaks of the project's positive impact to its surrounding environs. Acqua is revitalizing an old industrial area—what was once the Noah's Ark Sugar Refinery— into a bustling center of activity which, as our masterplanner Broadway Malyan had put it: "an experience that becomes a destination, and a destination that people can actually say, yes, I want to live there."
