HAVILA celebrates Colaique miracle

The secret behind Havila’s serene surroundings is more than the greenery that surrounds it, therebeholds a 67-year old miracle that happened within Havila’s 300-hectare township: the miracleof Colaique.

Last February 19, four thousand devotees from the academe, religious sectors and localgovernment units went to Havila in scenic Antipolo City to join a procession that will culminatein the revered Antipolo Cathedral, as the city celebrated the Colaique Miracle.


One of the most important events in the history of Antipolo, the Colaique Miracle is the story ofhow the city’s beloved patron, the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, saved the townsfolk inthe midst of World War II. During the Japanese occupation, the Old Antipolo Church as well asthe whole town was used as barracks by the enemy, and as the war drew to a close on February17, 1945, with Antipolo being heavily bombarded by American planes, 500 townsfolk made adecision to leave Antipolo and take with them the Image of the Our Lady of Peace and GoodVoyage.

Even as they walked through the steep and dangerous mountain trails while aerial raids happenedaround them, the survivors of the war believed that having The Virgin in their midst kept themsafe. After stopping at Kulaiki (also spelled Colaique), the group then made their way to thetowns of Angono, Santolan and Marikina.

This story of survival, faith and hope is commemorated annually since then by devotees. Likein past celebrations, this year’s procession made its way through the wide roads of the Havilatownship, ending in the Cathedral where a concelebrated Mass was held. A short programfeatured war survicors who shared stories of how they made their way out of Antipolo, protectedby the image of the Virgin.

“The message of this miracle has touched not only the local townsfolk, but also people fromall places and walks of life, from devotees from far-off towns and even many foreigners. Asthe project group behind Havila, we are happy to be part of such an important event, since ourannual participation allowed us to build stronger ties with residents and the community at large,”says Filinvest project officer Sean Imperial.

Havila is a prime development of Filinvest, a modern-day paradise that is home to fourcommunities – Mission Hills, Highlands Pointe, Villa Montserrat, and Forest Farms – that offerwell-appointed homes blessed by inherent charm, cool climes, clean air and breathtaking viewsof the city and Laguna de Bay.

Timberland Heights, Havila enrich environment with greening drives

Breathtaking Timberland Heights and Havila in Rizal represent more than the ultimate in mountain suburban living.

Timberland Heights:  An Eco-Sanctuary

Timberland Heights, a 677-hectare township project minutes away from Batasang Pambansa, has more trees than ever. Thanks to the continuing tree-planting activities of volunteers and representatives of different local government units, non-government organizations, schools and corporations. Last year, 3,500 trees were added to Timberland Heights, bringing to over 14,000 the number of trees planted as of the end of 2011.

In line with its conservation advocacy, Filinvest Land also leaves certain areas of its township projects untouched by human development. “As a premier suburban town cradled by hills and mountains of San Mateo, Rizal, Timberland Heights places great value and exerts much effort in maintaining an ecologically stable natural environment within its communities,” said Filinvest Land First Vice President Francis V. Ceballos.

Timberland Heights carefully laid out environmentally friendly components for homeowners such as training sessions on verme composting and rehabilitation and preservation of natural sites covering the township’s 80-hectare Greenways. “These enhancing and preventive measures are especially important for the mountain’s soil stability, keeping them ensured of the long term and providing ecological benefits to the community,” Ceballos said.

Timberland Heights is composed of the themed communities of Banyan Crest, Banyan Ridge, The Ranch, Mandala I, Mandala II and the Timberland Sports and Nature Club. The Asian-inspired Banyan Crest and Banyan Ridge offer panoramic views of San Mateo. High up on the mountains, The Ranch enables residents to enjoy the cool, fresh breeze plus a picturesque view of Laguna de Bay and the Sierra Madre mountain range.

In Havila, a 300-hectare township that spans Angono and Taytay towns as well as Antipolo City, more than 60 families comprising of Filinvest employees, property sellers and residents went to Villa Montserrat and Havila Drive last May 19 to plant 150 acacia and marigold trees propagated at Timberland Heights. During the event, Barangay San Juan in Antipolo awarded Filinvest with a certificate praising its advocacy of greening the environment. "Filinvest is committed in its role in preserving Mother Earth so
that in our own small way we can have a cleaner, greener environment for future generations," Ceballos said during the awarding ceremony. The Havila tree-planting also generated almost P50,000 in cash as donation to Fr. Uldarico Dioquino's "Kanlungan ni Maria" foundation.

The Havila’s themed residential communities are the 56-hectare Highlands Pointe, the 31-hectare Forest Farms, the 7.2-hectare Villa Montserrat and the 92-hectare Mission Hills.

Vinia Residences + VersaFlats showroom displays flexibility of space

There’s nothing more telling about a person than the way his living space looks. One’s home is a window to one’s personality and character.

The ability to reinvent space to reflect the owner’s individuality can be seen in the newly opened showroom of Vinia Residences + VersaFlats. The latest project from leading property developer Filinvest, Vinia Residences + VersaFlats offers true flexibility when it comes to choosing how to use one’s unit.

To demonstrate the adaptability of VersaFlats, Filinvest tapped interior designer Wilmer Lopez, Creative Director and CEO of W. Lopez Designs. Having designed a variety of spaces, both residential and commercial, Lopez is excited about this latest venture.

“This is our first project with Filinvest, and we hope that W. Lopez Designs will bring in a different design point of view to the mix,” said Lopez. Vinia Residences + VersaFlats features design elements that pay homage to nature. Green common area balconies, lush vines that cover an 18-meter wall, and a landscaped center court provide refreshing and relaxing living experiences for residents.

The challenge of merging a relaxing and refreshing living experience with space versatility also enticed Lopez. “We make it a point to study the market and design around the stories and lifestyles of our clients,” shared Lopez. “We make sure that what makes our interiors unique is the personality it emanates.”

For a studio unit, Lopez developed a Martha Stewart-inspired room with a country-chic flair. The SOHO boasts of a homey atmosphere that befits a wedding planner who entertains clients at home. For a 1-BR unit, Lopez sought inspiration from the lifestyle of a well-traveled photographer, whose pad has modern European touches.

With the opening of the new showroom at the ground floor, Interior Zone of SM City North Edsa, Filinvest aims to inspire future residents the many possibilities one can enjoy at Vinia Residences + VersaFlats. The high-rise condominium development has a variety of space options to cater to every requirement: there are studios starting at ±22 - 24 sqm, one-bedroom units from ±28 - 34 sqm, and two-bedroom units at ±49 sqm. Such choices will certainly appeal to young urban professionals, newly married couples or young nesters who are looking for residential units or the more versatile home-offices.

Vinia Residences’ VersaFlats, or SoHo suites, which range from studio-type units to a one-bedroom space, are ideal for budding entrepreneurs, or professionals with compact office requirements. These suites also make for a good investment for those who want to grow their resources.

Vinia Residences + VersaFlats’ strategic location in Barangay Philam, Quezon City enables the resident to enjoy the convenience of living near their place of work or destinations for recreation. Conveniently situated along EDSA, it is just a few minutes’ walk from the North Avenue MRT station and is connected to major shopping malls such as Trinoma and SM North Edsa via the walkways.

The wide array of amenities at Vinia Residences + VersaFlats will also entice future unit owners. The landscaped roof deck, with its infinity and wading pools, sky terrace, sky pavilion and gardens, will no doubt be a popular hangout for residents and their friends. The more active folks can continue with their health routine at the fitness studio and jogging path. A business center with meeting rooms is open to various uses, from small group activities to mini-business functions. On the ground floor, a variety of retail spaces will open, including a coffee shop, a convenience store, water refilling station, spa and beauty salon. Other features such as wi-fi access at the ground floor and amenity roof deck, 24-hour security, and property management all make living in Vinia Residences + VersaFlats truly convenient.

Filinvest’s Studio Zen: a winning investment

StudioZenWhen it comes to one’s hard-earned money, finding the right way to grow it or spend it can be a difficult task. But as these two proud unit owners of Studio Zen Private Dormitel and Residences found out, investing in a Filinvest property can be truly rewarding.

Located along Taft Avenue, Studio Zen has become the haven of students from top schools and universities in the area, such as De La Salle University, St. Scholastica’s College Manila, Arellano School of Law and U.P. Manila. Designed to provide them with a living and studying environment that is safe and conducive for learning, Studio Zen features a range of amenities that provide utmost comfort and convenience for its residents.

Unit owner Annie Tomas, a nurse who works in Ireland, was particularly attracted to how Studio Zen raised student living a notch higher. Having stayed in a dormitory in her younger days, where she had to share a kitchen, toilet and bath with other residents, Annie was delighted with Studio Zen’s more accommodating units. “At Studio Zen, the units have their own kitchen, toilet and bath,” enthused Annie. The mother of three was also impressed with Studio Zen’s modern design and facilities. Apart from the central atrium filled with natural light and freely circulating air, the roof deck also features a social and recreational area equipped with a theatre room, dance studio, game room, fitness center, and sky lounge at the landscaped Zen garden. WiFi access is also available at the amenity area.

Annie sees Studio Zen as the perfect home-away-from-home for her youngest child, a sixteen-year-old student at Far Eastern University. “This is definitely an ideal home, not just because of the amazing facilities, but also because the commute to and from school is easier with various modes of public transportation so readily available.” Best of all, she says, Studio Zen is very serious about its security policies, which includes the strict screening of visitors from the lobby reception curtailing access to the residential area. Aside from these ideal features, parents like Annie also appreciate the presence of a commercial area on the ground floor of Studio Zen. Residents thus need not leave the building to get most of their basic needs as it has retail boutiques, cafe, water refilling station, photocopy shop and convenience store.

Businessman Rafael Hernandez, who has acquired two of the units in the commercial area, was very happy to open his own laundry shop in Studio Zen. Quicklean One Hour Laundry features the Speed Queen's Quantum Wash Alert, which is a coin-operated washing and drying machine similar to those found in US laundromats; for more convenience, it has a Service Alert System which wirelessly connects to the residents the availability and status of their laundry.

“The coin-operated laundry business is perfect for high-rise developments such as Studio Zen where the time value of the residents especially the students are important,” shared Rafael. “The students can do their laundry, and at the same time do some studying since there is no need to be physically present in the laundry room. It’s like getting the best of both worlds".”
Rafael also credits Filinvest in helping him set up shop smoothly. “There are a lot of technical requirements in putting up the business, particularly with the building's utility lines and structural component, and FLI was able to answer these queries fast.”

Both Annie and Rafael know how important it is to use their money wisely, and at Studio Zen, they found a truly winning investment.

Studio Zen is another project of trusted developer Filinvest Land. Inc. With a rich history spanning almost 50 years, Filinvest has built more than 135,000 homes on over 2,350 hectares of land to fulfill the dreams of Filipino families across the nation.
