A beautiful ray of light in Pasig City is exciting homebuyers in the eastern section of the capital.
Rising in Pinagbuhatan is Suntrust Kirana, which offers strategically located and innovative condominium units. The project reflects the bright possibilities for residents in its very name: “kirana” comes from the Indonesian word for “beautiful ray of light.”
Trusted developer Suntrust Properties Inc. is delivering this new, competitive address along Urbano Velasco Avenue as a “gateway to a better life” for a promising segment of customers—from young professionals and couples to business people and overseas Filipino workers, among others.
This enticing slogan makes more sense when you zoom out of the 7,083-sqm lot on which the development stands. Suntrust Kirana is taking shape in Pasig, which has grabbed headlines over the past years because of its outstanding political leadership and a renewed economic vigor. Pinagbuhatan is near the epicenter of the city, including city hall and public market. Travel a little further and you are on C-5 Road, an important thoroughfare in Metro Manila. Finally, this part of Pasig shares boundaries with Taguig City, as well as Cainta and Taytay in Rizal.
Its location truly sets Suntrust Kirana dwellers up for success by providing them with unprecedented access to various career and entrepreneurial opportunities in any direction they choose. Beyond that, the development enjoys proximity to important establishments and hubs: schools like Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig, St. Paul College Pasig, Arellano University Pasig and University of Asia and the Pacific; hospitals like The Mission Hospital Pasig, The Medical City and St. Luke’s Medical Center-Global City; as well as leisure and business hubs like Bonifacio Global City, Ortigas East and Capitol Commons.
Suntrust Kirana’s strength does not only come from its location. The neighborhood’s features also reflect the trusted developer’s value for high-quality affordable homes within masterplanned, self-contained communities. This modern Asian four-tower midrise neighborhood provides 300 well-appointed residential units in studio (27.9 and 28.5 sqm) and two-bedroom (33.80, 36.60 and 37.90 sqm) cuts. Both options boast premium finishes like ceramic tiles for the floor finishes, a custom-built kitchen with cabinets, a provision for a range hood, toilet-and-bath with a shower set, to name a few.
The development is also equipped with family-friendly amenities that make it an oasis in the city, following the Asian theme’s value for serenity and closeness to nature. It has a clubhouse, swimming pool, kiddie pool, gazebo and gardens, activity and play areas, and an awesome water feature at the entrance. Unit owners can have parking slots inside the project. Towers have their own elevator, lobby and centralized mail. Safety and security concerns are addressed with sprinklers, fire exits, emergency power, CCTVs and 24/7 security.
Those who are business-minded can take up one of the 15 commercial units that will be built in a high-traffic area inside the compound. Just outside the gates of Suntrust Kirana is a largely untapped market for goods and services, a great quarter to start an entrepreneurial venture.
In Suntrust’s mission to be “the yardstick in the affordably priced township development and to be the buyers’ first choice,” it adds value to Suntrust Kirana by designing it as an “ecopolis”—a more responsible, sustainable home. This residence expresses its green commitments through features that ensure natural light and ventilation, the thoughtful use of nontoxic paint on all walls, and the integration of plant boxes and landscaping in the property.
Suntrust Kirana is indeed a beautiful ray of light in Pasig City, ushering in light, future and ambition for its dwellers.
