The Calinea Tower: The ideal investment for this Filipino-Chinese businessman

The Calinea Tower | August 8, 2023

Eric is one happy investor of The Calinea Tower.

Filipino-Chinese businessman Eric Tiu Tong knows a good investment when he sees one – and you can say it’s love at first sight for him upon learning about The Calinea Tower, DMCI Homes’ preselling condominium in M.H. Del Pilar St., Grace Park, Caloocan City


Located along the main thoroughfare of Caloocan City, The Calinea Tower is easily the midway point that will let Tong strike work-life balance. The development is just a couple of minutes away from Binondo, Manila where his clients are located, which will significantly reduce his daily travel for work. 


Tong has been in the construction business for 17 years, which involved multiple meetings in a week with fellow Filipino-Chinese entrepreneurs in Binondo. This is the closest he’ll ever be to both work and his family once his unit is ready for occupancy. For him, The Calinea Tower’s location is ideal for someone who will take the train on the daily. 


The Calinea Tower is just 350 meters away from the Monumento Station of the Light Rail Transit line 1 (LRT-1) along M.H. Del Pilar Street near 10th Avenue in Caloocan City, which perfectly suits Tong’s needs. 


“I have lived in Tondo for so long and it’s my comfort zone. The Calinea Tower is one LRT ride away, three to four stations away from my comfort zone,” he said in an interview. “You cannot really drive to Binondo, you have to walk to get around.”

The Calinea Tower is designed to be a charming landmark that offers a totally relaxing and enriching home environment in the metropolitan area of Caloocan City. (Artist’s illustration of amenity core)

‘Property of choice’ 


Tong owns other properties but finds this condo for sale in Caloocan City the most promising. 


“The Calinea Tower is along a big street, so in terms of accessibility with a car, it’s good because you won’t have to pass through heavy traffic every time you head out of your condo. That’s important to someone like me,” he added. 


He pointed out that The Calinea Tower is a property of choice for businessmen like him given its strategic location in between the cities of Malabon and Manila, where many industry colleagues live or do business in. 


The resort-inspired condo is also conveniently near EDSA, the newly opened NLEX-SLEX Connector Road, as well as major expressways, allowing its future residents to enjoy hassle-free trips around Metro Manila and beyond. 


The SM City Grand Central mall is a 5-minute walk from the property while both the SM North EDSA and Trinoma malls in Quezon City are a 15-minute drive.

The Calinea Tower is an ideal halfway point for people looking for a value-for-money investment, with the development being close enough to key destinations but also tucked away in the quiet side of Caloocan City. (Artist’s illustration of the lap pool)

Good investment


Tong’s experience as a businessman has also equipped him with the skill to identify good investments. He knows that investing in real property is always a good idea provided that these are built by trusted developers. 


“The profit from real estate is steady and secure, unlike other investments which require you to take on a high degree of risk to realize high returns,” he explained. 


“I think investing in a DMCI Homes condo allows you to have a good night’s sleep because you are confident about the quality of the property and that the developer is credible,” he added.


Tong has grabbed the opportunity to acquire a unit at The Calinea Tower during pre-selling, giving him a favorable rate as he waits for construction to finish. He draws confidence from his industry expertise about DMCI Homes’ track record of attention to detail and ability to stick to committed timelines. 


“I know that DMCI Homes will build a safe and strong building and behind the construction, there are architects who are meticulous and detailed,” he added. 


The Calinea Tower is a 48-storey development currently under construction, with an expected completion date of May 2028. Reserve your own unit today!
