A blend of Manila’s historic charms and progress

Being the nation’s capital city says a lot about the role of Manila in the country’s rich culture and history as it is home to various heritage sites.

However, as newer buildings and structures have been developed in the city over the years, its landmark treasures may easily be overlooked, as the city progresses into the modern times.

U.N. Gardens, Suntrust’s first condominium project in Manila

Fortunately, one property developer recognizes the importance of staying true to Manila’s historic charms while addressing the needs of our urbanized lifestyles today with its latest residential tower.

Suntrust Properties Inc. is taking inspiration from Manila’s heritage and bringing to the modern world Suntrust Ascentia, a residential tower to rise in Sta. Ana, Manila.

“Suntrust Ascentia ascends you to a higher standard of quality urban living, letting you live in the middle of the renowned Sta. Ana, Manila,” Atty. Harry M. Paltongan, Suntrust president, said.

“This modern contemporary tower is envisioned to rise as a landmark that represents Sta. Ana’s timeless beauty and elegant heritage,” he added.

The residential tower is set to rise along New Panaderos Street in Sta. Ana, near the classic Sta. Ana Church, which has recently been declared as a national shrine by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).

Inspired by the Filipino traditional motifs of the 1970s, this 5,210 square meters (sqm) condominium community showcases state-of-the-art amenities and well-crafted studio, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units designed for residents’ comfort and convenience.

The tower will feature 29 floors of 1,316 residential units, as well as 13 commercial units.

Studio units will range from 20.60 sqm to 26.90 sqm, while two-bedroom units can measure from 38.6 sqm to 47.75 sqm.

The project also has larger three-bedroom units sized from 57.2 sqm to 59.6 sqm.

Aside from its spacious units, Suntrust Ascentia also offers its residents a wide array of indoor and outdoor amenities.

Among its outdoor facilities are a swimming pool, a kiddie pool, a landscaped garden, an outdoor lounge, a multipurpose area, a pool deck/pool lounge, a children’s playground, a jogging path with benches, and a jacuzzi.

The project’s indoor facilities, on the other hand, will include a fitness gym, a function hall, a daycare and a reception lobby.

With a wide array of indoor and outdoor facilities to choose from, you’ll surely never run out of activities to enjoy with your family.

In addition, the building also features five levels of parking spaces, including motor parking, as well as supplemental building security through keycard access dedicated to verified unit owners or validated official occupants.

Apart from its amenities, Suntrust Ascentia further strengthens its convenience offering to residents with its strategic location.

Atty Paltongan underscores, “Strategically located along New Panaderos St., Suntrust Ascentia does not only bring you closer to your urban needs, but moves all of life’s conveniences just a stone’s throw away from your doorstep.”.

The residential tower is just 68 meters away from the notable Sta. Ana Hospital, and is near establishments such as Xentro Mall Sta. Ana, Sta. Ana Market Plaza and Savemore Market.

It is also near schools such as St. Francis School, St. Mary’s Academy of Sta. Ana, OB Montessori and La Concordia College.

Being in the boundary of three different cities: Makati, Mandaluyong, and San Juan, private and public transport is an easy feat, connecting you to multiple business hubs and even to the busy districts of Taft and Quiapo, Manila, the University Belt, and Sta. Mesa.

In terms of mobility and transport, Suntrust Ascentia is also accessible through the Quirino Avenue Skyway Exit, Nagtahan Skyway Exit, and the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), as well as transport systems LRT Line 1 and the Sta. Ana Ferry Terminal.

No stranger to Manila, Suntrust brings its nearly two decades of experience in the city into Suntrust Ascentia.

The company first entered the city in 2003 with its U.N. Gardens, a gated community of one- to-two bedroom condominium homes. The project was a partnership with the city government of Manila, which aimed to benefit Manila employees and residents.

Suntrust returned to the city in 2008 with Adriatico Gardens, a three-tower project located at the heart of Manila.

The property developer further solidified its presence in the city with the high-rise Suntrust Parkview in 2009, and the two-tower Suntrust Solana in 2014.

With its successful footprint in the city, Suntrust will surely deliver another development set to benefit the City of Manila and its residents.
