City Living Done Right at The Sapphire Bloc

There's a new addition to good urban living in the metro. 
Introducing The Sapphire Bloc! 

What is the Sapphire Bloc?

The Sapphire Bloc is a  four-tower complex (meaning 4 condominium buildings).  It is the new destination in Ortigas that houses a one-of-a-kind retail mix, perfect for your distinctive taste. It is designed with a walkable lifestyle in mind, with everything convenient and accessible - be it supermarkets, movies, malls, you name it. 

Where is it located?

If you are to choose a condo, then location is indeed one of the primary factors that you need to consider, and I believe the Sapphire Bloc has hit the mark. The complex is bounded by Sapphire, Garnet and Onyx streets, right in the middle of the Ortigas Center. It is actually minutes away from commercial and business establishments thus giving you instant access to places you want and need despite your active and busy schedule. 
Note: As I'm writing this, I am actually imagining myself working in Ortigas and living in Sapphire Bloc, and it made me smile. Just imagine that you can come home every day to join your family for lunch! :D Isn't that a great boost for the afternoon. 

 I like the ring to the phrase, "Pedestrian-friendly."
It means it's a safe place for children and the elderly to walk on a daily basis.

I actually searched for it in Google Maps and this is what I saw:

So many offices and restaurants just walking distance from the Sapphire Bloc. I would really be envious for its residents.

It is near the following establishments: 

  • St. Paul College (Pasig)
  • La Salle Greenhills
  • St. Pedro Poveda College
  • University of Asia and the Pacific
  • Ateneo de Manila University - School of Medicine and Public Health
  • Lourdes School of Mandaluyong
Commercial and Health Instituitions
  • Robinsons Galleria
  • The Podium
  • SM Megamall
  • Shangri-la Plaza
  • The Medical City
  • St. Francis Square 
  • StarMall Shaw

The Four Towers 

I have mentioned that the Sapphire Bloc has 4 towers. These are the north, south, east, west towers.
The North and West Towers are the ones open for sale. The North Tower will be ready by September, 2015, while the West Tower will be ready by end of 2017.

Amenities of North and West Tower: 

All four buildings offer the following facilities /services: 

• Common entrance lobby with reception counter
• Three (3) passenger elevators, o/ne of which will also serve as a service elevator
• CCTV monitoring of selected common areas
• Annunciator panel with emergency speaker at all floors
• Elevated water tank and underground cistern
• Standby power generator for common areas and selected residential unit
• Individual mail boxes
• Central garbage area
• Building administration office
• Fire exits  

The Units

 Two-Bedroom Unit

I love the Earth colors used. It looks so homey and relaxing to the senses.

One-Bedroom Unit

Perks for the Residents:
*Wi-Fi in selected amenity areas
*Amenities are to be shared by all residents

What makes it different from the rest of the condos?

1. Ring Rob: A Virtual Concierge. Aside from its distinct and advantageous location, The Sapphire Bloc (and all Robinsons Residences) offers Ring Rob, a virtual concierge set up to aid you, as a resident, to your daily tasks such as housekeeping, laundry, and even delivery needs.

2. Robinsons Lifestyle Card. As an added bonus, qualified residents are given an RLC Lifestyle Card that provides access to loyalty entitlements and privilege discounts.

So there you have it. If you're looking for a condo in Ortigas, I highly recommend this one. 
I'd say it's another monumental idea from Robinsons Land.
