CLOVERLEAF, developed by Avida Land Corp., a subsidiary of Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), will be the first residential developer in the latter’s latest P25-billion venture. Cloverleaf is an 11-hectare district soon to rise in Balintawak, Quezon City, which is envisioned to be a pocket urban development at the crossroads of Epifanio de los Santos (Edsa) and A. Bonifacio avenues.
Avida’s three-tower project, to be called Avida Towers Cloverleaf, is a P4.5-billion investment with a total area of 14,214 square meters. Its new layout concept will offer the “right-sized” units addressing a person’s need for “personal space.” Its two-bedroom and three-bedroom units come at 52 sq m and 61 sq m, respectively.
“Each unit is thoughtfully designed to provide each member of the family their own personal space. The two-bedroom unit will have a separate laundry area and a multipassenger toilet and bath that will allow simultaneous use of shower area and toilet by different members of the family, thereby saving waiting time for family members with similar schedules during the day,” explained Racquel S. Cruz, Avida Land corporate planning group head. For the first tower, it will have a total of 28 residential floors, with only 27 units per floor, and six commercial establishments at the ground floor. It will be situated next to a 2-hectare Ayala Mall complex. A 250-bed QualiMed Hospital, which specializes in the treatment of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, will also rise within this district by 2017.
Cloverleaf is very accessible—being connected to major road networks like Edsa, A. Bonifacio Avenue and North Luzon Expressway, and its proximity to business areas of Caloocan and Valenzuela. The location is very transit-oriented, with direct access to Light Rail Transit Balintawak station, and travel time to Makati City will be cut to only 20 minutes upon the construction of Skyway Stage 3.
Its amenities include a lap pool; kiddie pool; clubhouse with function hall; indoor gym; landscaped spaces; and serenity gardens.
Asked how this latest project will compete with its existing Vertis Condominium that is also situated in this city—considered as one of the most populous in Metro Manila—Cruz said Vertis targets young families and professionals based in Quezon City and surrounding neighborhoods. Avida Towers Cloverleaf, meanwhile, is looking at millennials, early nesters or start-up families, the Chinese community and residents of Quezon City and Camanava (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela).
Price range can be as low as P2.2 million for a studio unit to as high as P6.3 million for a three-bedroom unit. Tower 1 units will be turned over on the fourth quarter of 2019.
