Luxury living in the heart of the city

 
Location, location, location. Real estate professionals and property development experts will tell you that location is one of the most important considerations when it comes to selecting properties. And being at the center of it all is where many city dwellers prefer to be located. 

That is why The St. Francis Towers is the perfect site for those who want to live right in the heart of the city. At the heels of their highly successful and critically acclaimed The Shang Grand Towers, the Kuok Group now embarks on its second high rise luxury residential project – The St. Francis Towers. Highly esteemed for their global expertise in property development and multi-awarded for hotel and resort management, the Kuok Group is also the prime mover behind the Shangri-La hotels, as well as the Shangri-La Plaza mall. 

The St. Francis Towers , a residential development of Kuok Group’s The Shang Grand Tower Corporation, is located at the corners of Shaw Boulevard and St. Francis Street and will be directly linked to the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel and Shangri-La Plaza through a series of air-conditioned walkways. It also has direct access to the MRT Shaw Station via Shangri-la Plaza

The St. Francis Towers is composed of two towers, each rising to 60 floors. Each tower provides 6 high-speed passenger lifts and service elevators for residents of any of their studios, one and two-bedroom units (most of which offer a superb view of the city), garden duplexes and penthouses. All units enjoy a light and airy atmosphere due to the high 2.9m clear ceiling heights. 

The St. Francis Towers is also a techno connected residence, employing wireless fidelity facilities or WIFI. Residents also have excellent leisure and recreation choices like a multi-purpose room with videoke facilities, clubhouse with gym and aerobics room, games room with sports lounge, spa and steam room, adult and kiddie swimming pools, Jacuzzi, children’s play areas, and an internet center. A Laundromat and 24-hour convenience store are at hand, as well as concierge service. For special events, a banquet cum function room is available, along with hotel-linked services with EDSA Shangri-la Manila. 

With the construction of The St. Francis Towers, the Kuok Group establishes Shangri-La Place , Manila ’s new Garden district – where dynamic professionals and young families come to work and play. Within stone’s throw from reputable schools and universities and acclaimed hospitals, the neighborhood includes top retail shops, entertainment, dining and easy access to the MRT as well as 5-star hotel facilities. Once completed, it will be the tallest structures in the area, thus adding more prestige to an already prominent community. 

Hong Kong firm Wong Tung International Ltd. (WTIL) is the conceptual design architect of the project. Renowned Philippine team Reco+Casas Architects interpreted this design, infusing local culture and practices within the project. As Project Architect or Architect of Record for the project, they are responsible for its development from contract documents phase to contract administration phase. As lead consultant, they oversee coordination with other engineering and interior design consultants and other parties involved in the making of the St. Francis Towers

If seeing is believing, then prospective buyers can satisfy their curiosity with a glimpse of the St. Francis Towers model units beside Shangri-La Plaza . The Kuok Group challenged three acclaimed Filipino interior designers to release their creativity and offer design suggestions for the units. 

Anton Mendoza wanted to show luxury in a small space. Inspired by an east meets west theme, Anton used linen and silk fabrics from France which all followed an Easter design. He advises future owners to use wood finishes of the same shade, with inter-related colors in all the rooms and to focus their design on one focal point. 

Ivy Almario’s design had a contemporary feel to it. Carrying the theme of “warm minimalism”, she employed clean lines, beige on beige with accents of orange saffron in the living room, and a taupe and off-white scheme for the master’s bedroom. Colors were the unifying design element so she used colors that are smart, elegant and sophisticated. 

Warmth was introduced through the different fabrics to achieve that tailored look. 

Erfe’s theme is contemporary-eclectic. She introduced textures and colors to give 

a cool, fresh feel in some areas and a warm, classy modern look in others. The interior 

designs complemented the high ceilings, large picture windows and interesting wall 

features. Modern finishes on expensive wood veneers, soft and textured fabrics, accent 

lighting, earth –colored & patterned rugs – all lent a cozy and luxurious feel. Modern, 

original artworks by young Filipino artists completed the contemporary, classy ambience. 

The showroom of the St. Francis Towers not only looks great, it sounds great too. Acclaimed music industry pillar Toti Dalmacion lent his expert ear to enhance the showroom viewing experience through a distinct St. Francis Towers sound. Toti utilized “a combination of many styles and genres that show diversity and well roundedness, from bossa to indiepop, electronic and beyond that is non mainstream or not too mainstream/overplayed.” He chose these music types because he wanted people “to relate and at the same time discover new sounds and ideas that translates "visionary" and "forward thinking" in connection to the future that is St. Francis Towers.” His modern and hip mix includes De Phazz -Jazz Music (jazzy, yet modern with touches of drum and bass and bossa), John Plays Special-So Familiar (downtempo and funky at the same time), Blossom Dearie-Tea For Two- 60's jazz/standard (classy and kitsch all rolled into one), Feist-One Evening (cool and steady, great vocal track, 70's sounding) and Coralie Clement- L'Ombre Et Lumiere (French bossa).
