The Grid Co-Living to open in Makati

First Georgetown Ventures Inc. (FGVI) has appointed Hospitality Innovators Inc. (HII) to operate its new community-based complex, The Grid Co-Living.

The Grid is a 10-storey building with its first two floors allocated for commercial establishments and the rest for residential living.

It is located in the heart of Makati City and is walking distance to key office areas, several schools, and major transportation hubs.

FGVI’s president Kristopher Yang said: “We chose to partner with HII given their well-established reputation and experience in operations and property management of hotels, resorts, and serviced apartments. We want to be able to serve our clients well and, at the same time, we want our building to be properly maintained. We believe that HII is the perfect partner for these objectives.”

FGVI, led by George Yang, was founded in 1994 and has since become a notable player in the hospitality sector, with hotels located in Laguna and El Nido, Palawan.

The group is a developer of primary and secondary homes catering to the middle-income segment.

The Grid is FGVI’s affordable and viable solution to the traffic congestion and public transport crisis in the country, for office workers, medical front liners, and students alike.

“The influx of working professionals in Makati and the horrible traffic going to and from workplaces prompted us to venture into a co-living project. We envision The Grid to be the young urban workers’ home near their offices. We hope that cutting their travel time to and from work would improve their overall well-being,” Yang said.

The space is truly a home away from home, with accommodations suitable for different needs. What sets The Grid apart from other co-living facilities is its holistic approach to communal living.

The vibrant space includes ample amenities such as a swimming pool, gym, roof deck, retail shops to serve the needs of residents, and several open spaces.

Each facility not only contributes to the health of mind and body to foster a worry-free work-life balance, but also encourages positive interaction among its residents and allows them to build a sense of kinship and community.

HII has over 24 years of experience in hotel & property management, with 17 properties currently in its portfolio which include Hue Hotels & Resorts Boracay & Puerto Princesa, Charlie’s El Nido, The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences and Harvest Hotel.

Set to open in January 2023, The Grid is located along Yakal, Lumbayao, & Bakawan Streets, in San Antonio Village, Makati City.
