Sapphire Bloc cited as PH’s ‘Best Condo Development’

Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) ended 2015 by receiving another accolade for its four-tower residential complex called The Sapphire Bloc developed by Robinsons Residences, a trusted residential development brand under RLC.

The Sapphire Bloc represented the Philippines as “Best Condo Development” in the prestigious South East Asia Property Awards 2015. This real estate award giving body is known as the largest and most recognized industry awards event in the region.

RLC joined the roster of top honorees from a pool of about 400 top and emerging names in the South East Asian real estate industry. The awarding ceremonies were held recently at the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore.

Earlier in the year, The Sapphire Bloc bagged the “Best Condo Development” (Philippines) and “Best Mid-Range Condo Development” (Metro Manila) awards at the 2015 Philippine Property Awards which has been rewarding high-caliber work in construction, architecture and interior design of property developments in Asia.

Moreover, RLC was named “Outstanding Developer” by FIABCI, a Paris-based real estate federation for its other residential project called The Trion Towers.

“To be highly commended in the South East Asia Property Awards further drives us to continuously innovate on what comfortable and modern condo living means,” said Trina Cipriano, VP for Business Development at RLC.

Unique charm

Located at the Ortigas Center in Pasig, The Sapphire Bloc is RLC’s latest foray in modern vertical development that has since become a member of an elite league of other property projects now being recognized throughout the region.

Its Art Deco architecture amid contemporary buildings gives the Pasig City skyline a unique charm. Its enviable location provides added value since it is connected to three major cities, and is near many shopping malls, offices, skyscrapers, building complexes, nightlife bars and restaurants.

Retail space

Moreover, the master-planned development offers retail space measuring up to 8,000 sqm that is currently redefining destination dining in the metro. The entire stretch of the ground floor has been dedicated to serving up new and one-of-a-kind retail shops which can satisfy every craving.

Its medley of interesting shops and restaurants include the restobar Cable Car, premium coffee shop Starbucks Reserve, after-work drink and dine destination Moonshine PUB and casual dining places such as The Stockpile, Sobremesa, the all-day breakfast place Seven:AM, the ice cream parlor Papa Diddi’s Handcrafted Ice Cream Company by Paul Perez, the Filipino culinary find Cazuela, and Kko Kko which serves unique Korean cuisines.

“The Sapphire Bloc has proven our company’s commitment to our ‘City Living Done Right’ mantra, that aims to offer a level of distinction on comfortable and stylish living in the metro,” added Trina.

“Representing the country in the South East Asia Property Awards further inspires us to continue embedding the highest industry standards in all our developments.”
