The Velaris Residences: A top choice in property investment

The development brings together the strengths of international property development leader Hongkong Land and real estate giant Robinsons Land.

The current pandemic has illustrated what differentiates valuable properties from inferior ones by bringing to light the importance of their projects’ key elements. With restrictions on people’s movement and interaction with others, real estate investors now put more weight on location, property management, developer expertise and comforts.

Few property developers offer all these. The Velaris Residences does. A flagship development of RHK Land Corporation, it boasts premium location and all the elements that make it a particularly compelling investment choice, especially at this time.

The Velaris is a landmark project of two strong developers. It brings the strength and credibility of international property development leader Hongkong Land and Philippines real estate giant Robinsons Land. The Velaris Residences offers investors not just the prospect of capital appreciation, but also peace of mind stemming from the solid track record of both Hongkong Land and Robinsons Land, which expressed their long-term commitment to the project.

“As a leader in the global property market, Hongkong Land is well known and respected across Asia for our values in design, construction, relationships and vision that makes us different from the rest.  We are proud to bring our brand of excellence to the Philippines, and make the country a preferred investment choice with our landmark developments. Even with the pandemic, we are fully committed to bringing world-class living accommodations to the country,” said Lee Chee Hoe, chief representative of Hongkong Land Philippines.

Velaris Residences will be located at Bridgetowne, a 31-hectare master-planned community that spans Pasig City and Quezon City.

Hongkong Land is a major listed property investment, management and development group. The group owns and manages more than 850,000 sqm. of prime office and luxury retail property in key Asian cities, principally in Hong Kong, Singapore, Beijing and Jakarta. The group also has a number of high quality residential, commercial and mixed-use projects under development in cities across Greater China and Southeast Asia. In Singapore, its subsidiary, MCL Land is a well-established residential developer.  Hongkong Land is a member of the Jardine Matheson Group.

Henry Yap, business unit general manager of Robinsons Land Residential Division and concurrent RHK Land president, shared the same vision, “As the country goes through great challenges brought forth by the pandemic, you can count on the company to remain steadfast in our commitment. We remain optimistic about the future, and we are confident that our clients and investors recognize the inherent value that The Velaris Residences offers.”

Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) is one of the leading real estate companies in the Philippines and a subsidiary of the conglomerate JG Summit Holdings, Inc. With close to three decades of experience in property development, RLC is known as a reputable developer of mixed-use properties and residential condominiums developments in key cities and urban areas nationwide.


Never have location and accessibility been more important than now, and The Velaris Residences has that enviable combination of a great location and exclusivity. Situated in a quiet but prime spot in Bridgetowne, a 31-hectare master-planned destination estate that spans Pasig City and Quezon City, The Velaris Residences enjoys direct access to C5 Road, Ortigas Avenue, and Amang Rodriguez Avenue. Bridgetowne also offers easy access to the established business districts of Ortigas Center and Bonifacio Global City, as well as multiple establishments that offer all the essentials that matter these days. Sitting right at the country’s growth corridors, The Velaris Residences definitely stands to further appreciate in value as the government’s infrastructure projects also come onstream.


Each unit at The Velaris Residences was designed with the resident’s needs considered at each stage of the design process. This is particularly important now that people are expected to spend more time at home and want spaces where they can do everyday tasks with ease and comfort. Artfully considered in the building’s layout is people’s natural movement within the spaces. Every detail is meticulously designed with the residents’ experience at the heart of every architectural and interior design choice. Premium finishing accents and fixtures follow the stylings of the affluent in Hong Kong, with metallic tones of bronze and rose gold.


Digital solutions have become essential as the world seeks ways to minimize contact in the new normal, and The Velaris Residences beautifully showcases the marriage of technology and style. The bigger units are equipped with smart home features such as biometric fingerprint scanning, PIN code, RFID card access, and smart digital locks for state-of-the-art security. There are also air-conditioning and lights that can be controlled remotely from a phone; smart mirrors in three-bedroom and penthouse units – all optimizing technology for residents’ comfort, convenience, and security.


Private lift lobbies fortwo-bedroom, three-bedroom and penthouse units that take one straight to units are the ultimate in luxury and security at this time. The Velaris Residences also has a host of top-notch amenities that allow residents to enhance their well-being. All have been designed to complement the residents’ lifestyles while adding a pleasant touch to winding down and relaxing.

The COVID-19 situation has spurred demand for excellent property management, which The Velaris Residences’ property management team —combining the strengths and expertise of Hongkong Land and Robinsons Land — will bring to the fore. A world leader in property investment, management, and development, Hongkong Land has in its roster several notable projects across Asia which include The Marina Bay Financial Centre in Singapore, Central Portfolio in Hong Kong, and The Esse Sukhumvit 36 in Bangkok.

For keen investors who recognize value, a crisis offers new opportunities for growth, and would not pass up the golden opportunity to invest in The Velaris Residences.
