The Larsen Tower: Preferred address in Sucat

East Bay Residences continues to transform the suburban landscape with this latest residential tower.

A vibrant enclave in Sucat gives you even more reasons to set your roots in this part of the metro.

East Bay Residences—a 9.7-hectare parcel of land formerly known as the Tribeca Private Residences—has seen a massive and remarkable transformation over the last several years, which made it one of few remaining premium residential areas in Muntinlupa City, offering that much sought suburban, laidback overtone in a secure, exclusive community.

Breathing life into the old

It was in 2014 when Rockwell Primaries started to breathe new life into the old Tribeca community, bringing Rockwell’s signature flair, opulence and lifestyle to Sucat.

A promising blueprint then envisioned a dynamic, mid-density community that espouses a warm, comfy and safe environment, replete with wide, generous expanse of greens and lush open spaces, groundbreaking designs, well appointed amenities, and comforts of modern conveniences.

The opening of the Central Amenity Deck started that series of transformations that overhauled this enclave. Residents here were given a one-hectare expanse housing choice amenities that offered more recreational options: swimming pools, a function room and fully equipped gym to cater to their social, lifestyle and wellness needs.

Future residents will be spoiled for choice with the diverse unit sizes being offered at The Larsen Tower

A new opportunity to own a home here came next, with the launch of East Bay Residences’ first residential condominium in 2016: The Fordham Tower, which featured large, spacious unit cuts to suit the needs of modern urban dwellers.

Further upping the ante was the addition of East Bay Retail Row which made “stepping out” of your home a truly pleasurable experience. Today, Starbucks Coffee, The Marketplace, a BDO branch and Suds Go offer the ease of having a grocery, coffee shop, a bank and laundry shop practically right out of your doorstep. And soon, more restaurants and lifestyle boutiques will provide a new level of convenience for residents.

Clearly, the vision has turned into a reality. East Bay Residences has not only redefined the cityscape in Sucat, but also brought the curated lifestyle of Rockwell in this thriving sanctuary.

Latest project

And just recently, Rockwell Primaries launched its second residential condominium here: The Larsen Tower, offering its future homebuyers another opportunity to indulge in the aspirational lifestyle of a Rockwell community. No doubt, The Larsen Tower will be a much welcome addition to this already vibrant community.

Prospective buyers will be spoiled for choice as The Larsen Tower offers diverse unit sizes to cater to a variety of lifestyles. It introduced one-bedroom units (with sizes up to 39 sqm) to suit a young professional’s needs for a home to call their own. Two- to three-bedroom units, with sizes ranging from 54 sqm to 107 sqm, offer bigger space for families, while three-bedroom garden units boast of having a dedicated parking space and terrace.

Upon its completion in 2024, future residents will get to fully enjoy the features of The Larsen Tower, among them would be the Sun Lounge, located on the ground floor, where one can welcome guests or find respite for themselves in the airy space.

This lounge leads to the expansive Central Amenity Deck, where residents may enjoy a variety of indoor and outdoor amenities. The clubhouse holds a function room for gatherings, while the gym, jogging path and lap pool would allow you to keep track with your fitness and wellness goals. A kiddie pool and the great lawn offer lush spaces where families and friends can spend quality time.

The Central Amenity Deck affords residents the space to relax.

Future residents will also get to readily enjoy the convenience offered by East Bay Retail Row as this commercial strip is already open and filled with shops for your everyday needs. Add to that East Bay Residences’ prime location, which is just within driving distance from key destinations, institutions and establishments.

Indeed, The Larsen Tower only gives you more reasons to choose the southern part of the metro for your suburban home, with more spaces to explore and amenities to enjoy, and that comforting Rockwell promise of security, convenience and an enhanced lifestyle.



At The Larsen Tower, home can feel like luxury

The latest addition to the East Bay Residences, The Larsen Tower is a residential building that has all the makings of a hotel.

Where we live and how we interact with our homes constitutes a great deal of what brings happiness and comfort into our lives. If we could get a chance to choose anywhere we live, the best option would always be one that provides not only a roof over our heads but also amenities that promote recreation and a friendly environment. And of course, no one can go wrong with a balcony overlooking a scenic view.

That’s exactly what Rockwell Primaries has done with its latest addition to East Bay Residences called The Larsen Tower. The 20-story tower located in Sucat, Muntinlupa, provides the secure space that Rockwell is known for. Being in a close-knitted neighborhood, it’s surrounded by a commercial strip of establishments such as Starbucks, Marketplace, BDO and many other services and restaurants. Schools and business districts are also just a short drive or even walk away from it. 

One of the best things about this new tower is that it takes into consideration the different lifestyles of people. It’s not just an array of identical square rooms that exude that monotonous energy. Rather, its spaces leave room for creativity and self-expression. If you’re a single young professional, there’s a 39-sq.m one-bedroom unit that you could have all to yourself. For growing families or barkadas, they offer two- to three-bedroom garden units ranging from 54 to 107 sq.m.

Although staying indoors can be the peak of comfort for some, going out for fresh air and exercise is something that’s just as valuable. The Larsen Tower made sure to provide for the health and wellbeing of its residents with the expansive Central Amenity Area. Inside, there’s a clubhouse that can be used as a function room for gatherings. For physical wellness, there’s a fitness gym, jogging path and lap pool, giving you no reason to skip out on exercise.

The Larsen Tower doesn’t just stop at comfort within its space; it ultimately aims to enhance the lifestyle of its residents by giving them thoughtfully-designed areas with valuable amenities that make every day feel like a staycation in a hotel by reducing hassles in your daily routines. Here, convenience is key, and building a home at a place like this could be the start of a more stress-free and active life, which leads to one thing everyone aspires for: happiness.



8 Signs that the Property You’re Eyeing Is the Right One

There’s more to it than a gut feeling.

Home and lifestyle magazines and dreamy real estate commercials all say that nothing beats the joy of owning your own home. And while the line rings true, investing in a residential space can be overwhelming given the plethora of available options.

According to licensed real estate broker Erika Recomite, buying a home is an exciting milestone that comes with both its upsides and challenges. Erika recently made her first investment in Rockwell Primaries’ 9.2-hectare enclave, East Bay Residences, and now she’s sharing some tips on what to consider when purchasing a residential space.

Proximity to commercial and lifestyle hubs

When living in the city, being near your workplace and lifestyle establishments couldn’t be understated. As someone who lives in the South, Erika shares that she was lucky to find a residential development within the city but also a good distance from all the hustle and bustle. Given the increasing traffic congestion, finding a good location that offers both convenience and tranquility is important.

Greenery and lush open spaces

Not only do green spaces improve one’s mental well-being, but they also provide residents a place to jog, play sports, or even just take leisurely walks while also allowing them to breathe in fresh air. Erika shares, “I love to jog, but it’s so difficult to find green spaces in Manila nowadays. East Bay Residences offers open, spacious greenery with its vast estate.”

Dynamic amenities for leisure

One of the major advantages of living in a curated community is the accessibility to amenities that would have otherwise been out of reach. According to Erika, the one thing you should ask yourself when scouring for your dream home is whether it will improve your overall lifestyle, and this includes a good work–life dynamic. Picture spending weekends breaking a sweat at the gym or taking a dip in glistening pools, all within a stone’s throw away from one another.

Future developments
Erika suggests that it’s good to keep in mind and consider the upcoming infrastructures and other developments in the area to know the opportunities for growth.

Good developer profile
Given the high-value investment in real estate, home-seekers should study the developer’s profile, including the quality of the materials they use, what kind of loan services they offer, feedback from their previous customers, and their project history“Rockwell is generous in their quality and design, not compromising luxury for young professionals,” Erika shares.

Can be used for investment
Landed properties can be a good investment for capital appreciation in the long run. On the other hand, trusted developers that use premium finishes generate high yields. This is where East Bay Residences comes in.

Conveniently located in Sucat, Paranaque, East Bay Residences, Rockwell Primaries’ first residential property on the south side of Metro Manila, seamlessly blends comfort and convenience at prices within your reach.

Aside from offering spacious residential units with two to four bedrooms, perfect for families looking for a laidback sanctuary every day, East Bay Residences features a Retail Row, with a selection of commercial establishments, and a Central Amenity that spans almost a hectare. This interesting mix of spaces lets people do everything in one area; for example, residents can pop into Starbucks before they head for the pools or the gym or step out for the day.

More exciting things are brewing in this community, East Bay Residences continues to build more vibrant experiences for its residents, while catering to every need.

Excellent vantage point for a starter home

Up until she tied the knot, Charise Lara Alvaro would spend hours on the road every day just to get to her office Marikina where she lives with her family.  Charise works with an international corporate and investment bank in Bonifacio Global City.

Up until she tied the knot, Charise Lara Alvaro would spend hours on the road every day just to get to her office in Taguig, all the way from Marikina where she lives with her family.  Charise works with an international corporate and investment bank in Bonifacio Global City.

“Traveling to and from Marikina already eats up your time because it usually takes 4 hours back and forth, and considering the traffic jam in the area, travel can take around 3 hours to half day of your schedule, depending on how heavy the traffic is,” she related.

It was particularly trying for Charise, especially when paydays would coincide with Fridays and malls would hold clearance sales.  That meant more people are out on the road which meant even more crippling traffic. Charise would find her planned activities getting delayed, no thanks to traffic jams.

Weekends for the couple means spending quality time treating themselves to good food and meeting up with friends and family.  “I either cook in the comfort of our home or dine out for special occasions or celebrations. Good food will always cheer up your tired body and liven up your soul after a busy day or for the coming week ahead,” Charise said.

Now that she’s married, Charise and her husband Yuri currently divides their time between Makati, where they stay during weekdays to be nearer their respective places of work, and Marikina, where they go home to during weekends.  “I usually have my travel time around 30 to 40 minutes going to and from work as compared to my travel time before which takes up to 4 hours a day,” she shared.

As a newly-wed couple, Charise and Yuri wanted to invest in a property they can call their own.  A home that is not only accessible but will, more importantly, serve as their foundation in building their family and future.

Like most couples looking for a starter home, the Alvaros considered numerous factors while scouting the metro for their own.  One primary reason, however, stood out from the others and this is location.

“My husband wouldn’t like to go and live outside Metro Manila,” said Charise.

“It is a must for me to monitor the day to day operations of our branches,” explained Yuri, who co-owns Secure Storage Services, a personal and business storage rentals provider which caters to small and medium-sized enterprises.  Yuri’s office is in San Juan City.

When traveling within the metropolis consumes a huge chunk of your daily schedule and compromises even your personal life, it is only natural to pick an address that will give you ease of access not only to your place of work but also to things that matter like bonding with friends and family.

“We eyed on The Vantage mainly because it is located near The Fort, BGC, where my current work is.  It is also nearby the Pasig business district and there are numerous schools near The Vantage,” Charise said.

The Vantage is Rockwell Primaries’ offering in Kapitolyo, Pasig.  It features two high-rise residential towers at a prime location that is at the center of four major business districts: Ortigas, Mandaluyong, Makati and BGC.  It is within close proximity to the main offices of local and international companies, malls and renowned educational institutions.

“We were referred to The Vantage in Kapitolyo and found more choices in terms of the unit sizes, offering much larger units compared to other developers in the real estate industry,”  Charise shared. “We decided to purchase a unit because it is practical and convenient for the both of us.” The couple purchased a spacious 72 sqm two-bedroom unit and they are planning to use the second bedroom for their future child.

Living at The Vantage will surely complement the couple’s love for food, with the vertical village being situated in Pasig’s trendy food and lifestyle hub, Kapitolyo.  The building’s amenities, meanwhile, include a fitness gym and a swimming pool, perfect for Yuri and Charise whose day to day routine includes hitting the gym and going for a swim to exercise.  Yuri is eagerly awaiting making the most of The Vantage’s amenities since it their family would not have to go far, even for recreational activities.

Aside from convenience, the Rockwell brand’s good property management, high level security within its premises and better unit sizes are also what prompted the couple to choose The Vantage over other developments in the area.

Charise is looking forward to achieving that work-life balance at their future community at The Vantage.  “Since the site is perfectly located near BGC and other business districts within the metro, going to and from work is much easier and convenient.  Most importantly, we will be spending more quality time with our loved ones after a busy day at work without compromising our security and safety needs,” she concluded.


Anina Rubio: A New Space For Creativity

Artist Anina Rubio had been working in a corporate office for a big telecom company for a little over three years, when she finally felt the need to seek new opportunities. She was looking for a renewed sense of purpose and passion, which she did find after picking up the paint brush and falling in love with the smooth, relaxing strokes of calligraphy.

“My art is not only expressive, it’s also a form of healing for me,” she begins. “On some days, when I get frustrated, instead of lashing out that negative energy, I paint. Might as well convert that negativity into something beautiful, right?” she says in her blog. And this is what she’s been doing over the years; channeling all of her thoughts and emotions and transforming them into something beautiful that all can appreciate.

From simply doing “art” as a hobby, the 32-year-old former engineer has now embraced it as a calling and has allowed her passion to grow. From calligraphy, her art has evolved to watercolor, acrylics, mural painting and now even installation art. Her imagery—a wonderful and whimsical mix of botanicals, letters and prints—is romantic and nostalgic, but it always aims to send a message. “With my current projects, I’m trying to raise awareness and encourage people to take a more active role in protecting and taking care of the environment. My work, in that sense, is very personal and serves a purpose, too,” she says.

As an artist who works in solitude for hours on end, she has very specific needs when it comes to her creative space and process. “For me as an artist, though I love the thrill of new adventures, and though I’m sometimes drawn to uproot and move, I think it’s very important to have your own space. I think everyone can relate to the fact that at the end of the day, you just want a place you can call your own.”

Anina’s home has always been the bustling neighborhood that is Kapitolyo. With the dynamic food choices and strategic location, it’s easy to see why the vibrant area suits the free-spirited artist’s lifestyle. Even her new home, The Vantage by Rockwell Primaries, is found within the cozy community.

Not only does The Vantage offer a sense of familiarity and community, it also offers her stability and the creative space to grow as an artist. “I love the neighborhood, it really feels like home. I can go around my bike freely – to the mall, grocery store, restos,” she adds. “On the other hand, when it comes to my unit, I appreciate how the layout is very generous and there’s a balcony where I can view the sunrise. I’m looking forward to seeing that every day.”

While situated in the homey neighborhood of Kapitolyo, The Vantage delivers the signature Rockwell lifestyle, one that promises security, exclusivity and elevated city living. In addition to the beautiful views of the sunset and the city (which you can also admire from the development’s Sky Deck), The Vantage also boasts several amenities that help you to achieve work-life balance in the bustling city.

For families, there’s an expansive kid’s play area, a swimming pool and fitness gym for those who want to get into a healthier lifestyle, and function rooms and meeting rooms for gatherings. For professionals, entrepreneurs, homemakers or even artists like Anina, The Vantage becomes the ideal home.

“Even if I am carefree, owning something very tangible is a sign of maturity and adulting,” laughs Anina. “For me, whether or not I’m going to live here in the long run—there are so many things that can happen in three years—I think The Vantage is perfect for me in this specific phase of my life. Plus, it’s an incredibly good investment.”

Whether it’s to be a space for her work, a place that she can come home to, or a property for lease in the coming years, The Vantage gives Anina Rubio the flexibility and freedom to live the life—and future—she chooses.
