Family finds dream home in Mandaluyong high-rise

Flair Towers | June 8, 2016

The Cosep family

Many Filipinos aspire for a home where family members are nurtured to become healthy individuals. This is one of the characteristics of a traditional, closely-knit Filipino family: to seek a fine lifestyle where upholding togetherness and quality time is not an option.

These are the values that Cesar and Shirley Cosep have lived by ever since they got married more than two decades ago. Their daughters, namely Shirey, Cian and Christine have always been their inspiration to aspire for their own family home which is no less than a spacious, high-quality residence nestled in a peaceful neighborhood.

"We used to move from one house to another, especially when we were just starting our family," shared Cesar, in recalling the time when he and his wife were newlyweds. They first lived with his family in Manila, and afterwards transferred to the house where Shirley grew up in at Quezon City.

It was when Cesar became part of a global Information Technology company at the same time running a family business when they were finally able to purchase a condominium unit near his office. Although the location was ideal, it was not quite what they imagined their dream house to be.

"For 14 years, we have lived at a condo in Mandaluyong," recalled Shirley. "The location was good – it was at the center of everything. But we were not satisfied with our home and lifestyle there. It was not the kind of place we had in mind for our children."

The Coseps were never quite at ease with the cramped living space that is nowadays common in city-living. Shirley, in particular, is one who will not settle. Apart from managing several small businesses, Shirley dedicates most of her time to her family and is passionate about giving them only the best.

"Aside from a fine house, the environment is a big consideration for me. It has to be intimate, peaceful and pleasant. It's the kind of surroundings that I want our kids to grow up in," she said.

Fortunately, a new condominium development opened for pre-selling near their residence. Curious as to its lifestyle offerings, the Coseps visited its sales office and model unit along the condo's construction site. Little did they know that they are about to find the home that they have always aspired for.

Finding Flair

This condominium development is DMCI Homes' Flair Towers located in Reliance corner Pines Street at Highway Hills, Mandaluyong City. The two-tower, 40-storey high rise residential enclave bears its developer's trademark resort-inspired lifestyle and country clubhouse-like amenities ideal for a dynamic urban family.

"It was like destinywe were just passing along the construction of Flair Towers one day," Shirley said.

"The unit cuts were noticeably bigger and I liked the fact that there is a balcony with the amazing view of the amenities. It was also in Mandaluyong which makes it convenient and saves us from adjusting our day-to-day routine."

The prime location puts Flair Towers at the center of main thoroughfares, schools, commercial and business hubs, hospitals and places of worship.

"It's also easily accessible from other CBDs like Ortigas, Makati and Bonifacio Global City," added Cesar.

Cesar, for his part, particularly liked the fact that the condo development is of premium quality but comes at competitive rates. "I didn't expect that the prices were more affordable per square meter compared to others of the same caliber."

New life

The Coseps moved in at their two-bedroom unit two years ago and are now relishing their lifestyle more than ever.

"The ambiance is as I expected it to be peaceful and private. There are a lot of wide open spaces and lounge areas for bonding and conversation. The gardens are well-cared for and the neighborhood culture is friendly and polite," said Shirley.

On weekends, the family usually spends quality time together, either at the comforts of home or at the amenities which include the infinity pool and lap pool, the basketball court and play court, view deck, sky park and sky lounges, among others.

These amenities as well as the building design are made more expansive as they are infused with Lumiventt Technology. This provides a central garden atrium and sky patios in every five floors that ensure that natural light and breeze aptly flow throughout the residential buildings.


All these benefits make up the ideal home and lifestyle that the Coseps have once envisioned for themselves and has now been made a reality.
