Vista Shaw was formerly named 515 Shaw, the change in the name was to prevent any legal/business complications because the address 515 is also shared by another property. This 38flr, twin tower project is located in the corner of Laurel Street and Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong City, features contemporary design and select modern-day amenities, with former President Jose P. Laurel’s historical mansion being a separate, but integral, part of the development. It will be a museum which will be open to everyone and still be managed by Vista Shaw.
“Originally, we thought of adapting the Laurel Mansion into a grand lobby but we decided to leave it untouched in order to preserve its integrity as a historical place and allow our residents to see it in its former glory,” says Elizabeth Kalaw, Division Head of Vista Residences.
The location is one the best value you can get when you own a unit. It’s in the heart and center of the city, in enclosed in the cities of Makati, Quezon, Manila and Pasig. You will never be far from the major cities in the world. You will never have to go far with business establishments that are surrounding the area. One of the biggest shopping center is just across the street. Three major malls are just a few minutes away from Vista Shaw – Shangri La, Megamall, and Robinson’s Galleria. Schools, churches, hospitals and other establishments are near the area as well.
Exclusive to residents are amenities that include a kiddie/adult pool, function rooms and game lounges. Afforded with the view of the Wackwack Golf Course, the units range from studio to one-bedroom to two-bedroom affairs. In addition, both towers will feature sky amenities where residents can lounge, dine or simply admire a breathtaking 360-degree view of the city.
As for the residential units, Kalaw states that they “offer a number of design configurations to address the different living arrangements of our clients.” Deliverables include high-grade vinyl flooring planks, plastered painted wall finishes, exposed slab and rubbed concrete painted ceiling, solid wood-framed entrance doors, aluminum powder-coated glass for windows, window-type air condition provisioning as well as split-type air condition provisioning for other units.
“Kitchens,” adds Kalaw, “are equipped with modular bases, hanging cabinets, granite countertops and splashboards, stainless steel sinks with faucets and painted gypsum ceiling boards.”
Just like in its other projects, Emma Amores, Corporate Communications Head of Vista Residences, says that the high-rise developer has gone the lengths to create comfortable homes for its Vista Shaw residents as a reflection of the commitment of its mother company, Vista Land, to provide a home for every Filipino.
“In our vertical developments, we make it a point that every unit exudes a warm, homey feeling through the design and the functionality of the units as well as in the amenity areas,” says Amores. “We don’t want our clients to feel that they are living in a box, compromising their sense of comfort. In addition, we make sure that our brand of customer service also extends that warm and friendly Filipino treatment.”
