Bonifacio Global City—Collaboration is needed to seamlessly fuse Japanese innovation with Filipino hospitality and create a unique development that will redefine the real estate market.
The Seasons Residences in Bonifacio Global City, the Japanese-inspired condominium project by Federal Land, Inc. in partnership with Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd. and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd., is an example of such synergy.
Through the shared expertise of the developer and its partners, the design and structure of Seasons Residences make it more than just a technical collaboration, but of cultural harmony as well.
Industry experts from design, architecture, and engineering from both Tokyo and Manila were commissioned for the project, making Seasons Residences a masterwork of collaborative design.
The master plan is designed by Nikken Sekkei, a Japanese architectural firm ranked #2 in Building Design’s 2019 World Architecture top 100 list. Established in 1900, Nikken Sekkei has completed over 20,000 projects in 40 countries and 200 cities worldwide.
Renowned for its “space creation” and “space visualization” philosophies, the company is tasked to design the commercial area to incorporate distinct Japanese spatial characteristics.
The concept behind the façade of the podium, on the other hand, is the brainchild of Torafu Architects led by up-and-coming designers, Koichi Suzuno and Shinya Kamuro. The company has established itself on a wide array of projects ranging from architectural design, interior design, exhibition space design, to product design. Working hand-in-hand with Torafu’s façade concept is Asao Tokolo, a modern master of pattern design and the artist behind the Tokyo Olympics 2020 emblem.
Working with Japanese partners are elite groups of Filipino architects and engineers.
Arch. Carmelo Casas of Casas+Architects spearheads the construction process of Seasons Residences as the project architect. Known for landmarks such as the Grand Hyatt Manila and Solaire Resort and Casino, Casas+Architects is sought after for their expertise in high-rise residential and office building design and master planning.
Damping technology against earthquakes
Since both Japan and the Philippines experience frequent earthquakes, Seasons Residences commissioned Engr. Raul Manlapig of Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong to provide structural, wind, and seismic engineering services.
The company equips Seasons Residences with Viscoelastic Coupling Dampers (VCDs), a Japanese damping technology which absorbs wind, or quake-induced vibrations in tall buildings.
To complete the Japanese aesthetics of Seasons Residences, GF & Partners provides a Zen-inspired interior design to the amenities and common areas in collaboration with Japanese partners.

The Philippine real estate industry continues to enjoy steady growth attributed to, among other things, a steady increase in demand in the residential condominium segment.
As the income of the middle to upper middle class grows, their taste has also become more discerning. They are now more concerned about products that are reflective of their lifestyle choices and products that provide convenience and comfort.
Real estate developer, Federal Land, Inc., recognized this shift in Remand. In one of their recent forays, they have chosen to collaborate with a property developer from Japan, Nomura Real Estate Development, Co., Ltd., whose vision for quality, value, and customer satisfaction equals their own.
Founded in 1957 in Tokyo, Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd. is one of the affiliates of the Nomura Group of Companies which has a history of more than 90 years of investment banking experience. One of the more prominent members of this group is Nomura Securities, one of Japan’s largest financial institutions.
The real estate company engages in residential development, corporate real estate brokerage, commercial property development, building leasing, and architectural design businesses across Japan, and recently, in China, Vietnam, and Thailand.
Nomura has not only dedicated itself to going beyond normal design boundaries, but has continuously explored new technologies that better serves the urban landscape of its properties.
Under its quality residential brands, Proud and Ohana, Nomura has gained a reputation for quality in locations they are present in, bringing value to the environments they build.
“As a company, we look for equally strong partners in every project. We consider it an honor to bring the excellence that Nomura Real Estate is known for and to share it with the Philippines. We’re very happy to find a good partner in Federal Land Inc. so we can transform our vision of integrating all that is precious to people and communities, into reality,” said Eij’i Kutsukake, chairman of Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd.
The Seasons Residences is the first project of the partnership between Federal Land, Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd., and retail giant, Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, Co. Ltd. It is a four-tower Japanese-inspired residential development which will be home to the first Mitsukoshi Mall in the country.
It is currently under construction at Federal Land’s Grand Central Park in Bonifacio Global City.
This venture promises to offer a harmonious, innovative, and technology-led home that elevates the lifestyles of the growing population of discerning buyers.
“By combining our knowledge and enthusiasm with our high level of technical skills, we can offer the best products and services to the, partnership,” Kutsukake said.
The Seasons Residences benefits from Nomura’s expertise on design efficiency. Among other features, this translates to maximized storage spaces within the units, clean technology (where each unit wiljt have tiles that minimize excess’ humidity, unpleasant odors, and harmful substances in the air), and safety (the use of visco-elastic coupling dampers to reduce wind and earthquake vibrations).
The partnership will also be building the much-anticipated Mitsukoshi Mall at the podium of the residential towers of The Season Residences. This four-story retail development is set to provide a holistic Japanese shopping experience to Filipinos.

Prime real estate developer, Federal Land, Inc., recognized this shift in demand. In one of their more recent forays, they have chosen to collaborate with another leading property developer from Japan, Nomura Real Estate Development, Co., Ltd., whose vision for quality, value, and customer satisfaction equals their own.
As one of Philippine’s pioneer real estate developers, Federal Land Inc. is known for iconic projects and world-class aspirations. A proud member of GT Capital Holdings, Federal Land demonstrates the passion of a trailblazer and innovator tempered by the strict disciplines of banking and finance.
Now on its 47th year, Federal Land has dedicated itself to developing properties that are faithful to the aspirations and expectations of its residents. Each project is truly considered and built to be of topnotch quality. Federal Land, Inc. creates properties anchored on the values of trust, reliability, and integrity through its masterbrands, Federal Land and Horizon Land.
Soler Tower, Tytana Plaza, and Mandarin Mansion are the first projects of Federal Homes, Inc. in 1970s
Federal Land Inc. began in 1972 as Federal Homes, Inc. In the same year, it launched the Soler Tower to cater to the Filipino-Chinese community in Binondo, Manila. This was immediately followed by the launch of Tytana Plaza, Mandarin Mansion, Escolta Twin Towers, Dasma Corporate Center, and Federal Tower.
The success of Binondo projects and the increasing investor confidence led to an expansion in Pasay. In 1990, Federal Land launched Bayview International Towers along Roxas Boulevard. The project was one of the first prime developments in Pasay. After the reclamation of Manila Bay, Federal Land acquired 40 hectares to start a master-planned integrated community: Metro Park.
Setting its sights on producing more quality projects for its customers, Federal Land dedicated itself to building self-sustaining communities in Manila, Makati, Cavite, and Cebu. Early 2000 saw the rapid introduction of prime real estate projects such as Bay Garden Club Residences, Oriental Garden Makati, Florida Sun Estates, Valencia Hills, The Grand Midori Makati, Riverview Mansion, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu, and the landmark GT Tower International.
Since then, Federal Land has continued to build and deliver high-quality properties that are tailor-fit to the communities it chooses to serve. The Four Seasons Riviera in Binondo is designed with feng shui sensibilities. The Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes is intended to be a kid-friendly garden enclave ideal for starting families. The Quantum Residences is strategically located in between Manila’s university belt and Makati Central Business District to cater to young adults transitioning from students to professionals. Marquinton Residences, Tropicana Garden City, and Siena Towers gave Marikina citizens a new option aside from the traditional house and lot living. Mi Casa in the Bay Area brings in the modern tropical paradise streamlined for contemporary living. These projects stand as testimonies to Federal Land’s unrelenting commitment to building structures and communities that contribute to the progress of society.

Not resting on its laurels, Federal Land continues to advance its vision of building exceptional properties through its alliance with renowned global brands.
In 2008, Federal Land partnered with Orix Corporation, a top real estate company in Japan, for the Grand Midori Makati on Legazpi Street. The partnership fused Filipino artistry and Japanese ingenuity and created a Zen oasis in the heart of the city. In 2012, Federal Land formed the Bonifacio Landmark Realty and Development Corporation, a joint venture with Orix Corporation, to bring the iconic Grand Hyatt Manila and Grand Hyatt branded residences to North Bonifacio Global City.

Launched as a closing highlight to 2018, The Seasons Residences is a $400 million development project in partnership with leading Japanese firms, Nomura Real Estate Development, and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, Inc. The development will have four upscale residential towers and the country’s first Mitsukoshi Mall.
Excellence in Execution
Federal Land, Inc. General Manager Thomas Mirasol and Vice President for Sales and Marketing John Cabato receive the 2019 Top Developer Award from BCI Asia.
Other notable awards collected are the 2019 Top Developer Award from BCI Asia for The Seasons Residences; the 2019 Brand Leadership Award from CMO Asia; the Best Luxe Condo of the Year from The Outlook 2018 by Lamudi for the Grand Hyatt Manila Residences; the 2017 Gold Award for Outstanding Developer from Fédération Internationale des Administrateurs de Biens et Conseils lmmobiliers (FIABCI) for The Grand Midori Makati; and the 2007 Developer of the Year Award from Chamber of Real Estate and Builders Association (CREBA) for Marquinton Residences in Marikina.
The Legacy Continues
Designed by world-renowned architecture firm Foster + Partners, the Estate Makati is envisioned to be the crowning jewel of Makati Skyline.
This 2019, Federal Land is slated to launch several projects including the Hawaiian-inspired development in the Bay Area, Mi Casa; and the company’s first foray in Ortigas CBD, The Grand Midori Ortigas. Federal Land is also scheduled to publicly launch the ultra-luxurious condominium project in partnership with SM Prime Holdings. Designed by world-renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners, The Estate Makati is set to be the crowning jewel of the Makati skyline and is expected to put the Philippines on the map of modern architectural marvels.
Federal Land celebrates its 47th year of transforming the skyline and reimagining the country bearing the theme “Excellence in Execution: Delivering What is Promised.” The theme underscores Federal Land’s commitment to create and develop enriching communities on par with the rest of the world. The values of accountability, ownership, and urgency serve as the company’s guiding principle to ensure Federal Land’s legacy of excellence will continue not only for 2019 but for the years to come.
To ensure the comfort and safety of its residents, Federal Land Inc. incorporated a sophisticated damper system to withstand earthquakes in its Japanese-inspired condominium complex The Seasons Residences in North Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
Developed by Nippon Steel Engineering Group, Viscoelastic Coupler Damping (VCD) System is an economic high-performing damping system optimized for reinforced concrete buildings. VCD absorbs vibrations caused by earthquakes as well as strong winds during typhoons, making the structure steadier and safer.
Federal Land Executive Vice President for Business Management Catherine Ko said in a briefing last April 27, 2019, shared that their decision to use VCD adds value to their new development, The Seasons Residences. The first tower, Haru, is expected to open by 2023.
“Because we work with our Japanese partners and everybody knows that Japanese technology protects people [and] their buildings against natural disasters…we want to bring that to the Philippines through our building as well,” she said.
The Seasons Residences is a Federal Land mixed-used development in partnership with two of Japan’s top firms Nomura Real Estate Development and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. It channels the Japanese tradition of excellence, innovation, and style. The project will also feature the very first Mitsukoshi Mall in the Philippines to offer a uniquely Japanese mall experience.
Federal Land considered the fault systems of West and East Valley Faults, as well as the Philippine Fault System and Manila Trench when designing The Seasons Residences.
“You design the building in such a way that it will be able to resist that peak ground acceleration,” said Raul Manlapig, managing director of design and engineering firm Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong Ltd.
Manlapig said that damping systems like VCD help dissipate an earthquake’s energy to minimize possible damage to a tall building. Occupants of high-rises built with damping technology will also not be as dizzy as those in buildings that do not have it.
Prior to The Seasons Residences project, Federal Land also incorporated VCD for the luxury hotel Grand Hyatt Manila.
VCD was also used in some of the tallest structures in Asia such as the Tokyo Skytree in Japan, Taipei 101 in Taiwan, Jing Mao Building in China, Cheung Kong Centre in Hong Kong, National Museum of Natural History’s Tree of Life in the Philippines; and the world’s longest suspension bridge Akashi Kaikyō Bridge in Japan.
MANILA, Philippines — Federal Land Inc. is bringing Japan’s oldest department store chain to the Philippines to give Filipinos a new shopping experience.
In a statement, Federal Land said it would put up the first Mitsukoshi Mall in the Philippines to rise in Bonifacio Global City.
The company partnered with Japanese real estate developer Nomura Real Estate Development and retail specialist Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. for the development of The Seasons Residences.
GT Tower International, Grand Hyatt Manila and Residences, and the soon to rise, The Seasons Residences, are only a few of the most iconic towers in the Philippines that elicit the sophisticated and luxurious lifestyle that only the privileged few can enjoy. With its crown of 10-story vertical fin, the GT Tower International is one of the most iconic office towers in the Makati skyline. Currently the tallest skyscraper in the country, the Grand Hyatt Manila is a five-star luxury hotel preferred by VIPs all over the world. Considered as the first Japanese-inspired integrated community in the country – soon to rise, The Seasons Residences, presents a slice of the Japanese way of life that people emulate for their simplicity, practicality and efficiency.
These three iconic projects couldn’t have been more different, but there is one thing they have in common – they are all developed by one of the pioneers in the Philippine real estate scene – Federal Land, Incorporated.
Anchored on the values of trust, dependability, and integrity, Federal Land, now on its 47th year, is dedicated to developing properties that are faithful to the needs and aspirations of its residents, and even beyond expectations. Each project is considered a masterpiece, hence in every project, Federal Land brings in the most ingenious architects, most innovative engineers, and most reliable materials to build a safe and ideal home that is unique to the priorities of each person and designed around their life plans.
As one of the country’s prime movers in the real estate industry and builder of Filipino homes, Federal Land introduces projects that were never before seen and reinvents the standards of project planning, and harnessing its expertise in the development of global partnerships with international brands, that produced the luxurious Grand Hyatt Manila Residences; and the Japanese-inspired, The Seasons Residences.
Launched as a closing highlight to 2018, Grand Hyatt Manila Residences – South Tower in Grand Central Park, North Bonifacio Global City, is a joint venture with Orix Corporation of Japan and the Chicago-based Hyatt brand. The partnership brings to the country not only luxurious residential suites but also the legendary Grand Hyatt hospitality and service.
Grand Hyatt Manila Residences also notably won “Best Luxe Condo of the Year for Customer Service” of The Outlook 2018 by Lamudi: Philippines Buyers’ Choice Property Awards.
Federal Land also launched a $400-million development project in partnership with leading Japanese firms, Nomura Real Estate Development, and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, Inc. The project envisions to create an integrated mixed use development incorporating Japanese spirit, experience, and technology. The development will have four premier residential towers, The Seasons Residences, and the country’s first Mitsukoshi Mall.
Federal Land’s commitment to develop and deliver world-class homes is not exclusive to its luxury and premier residences. Unique and with its own character, every Federal Land project has distinctive features certain to help its residents flourish and reach their full potential.
In Manila, Four Seasons Riviera in Binondo is a riverfront home with feng shui sensibilities to usher good luck into its residences. In Paco, Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes, a kid-friendly garden enclave ideal for starting families, has a heated pool for families to enjoy in the weekends. Strategically within the Manila’s university belt and near Makati CBD, Quantum Residences has a basketball court, karaoke room, business center, and other amenities to help Filipino millennial citizens achieve a healthy work-life balance.
In the Bay Area of Pasay, Federal Land proudly reclaims its status as the real estate pioneer in the Macapagal area with its sprawling Metro Park integrated community and the launch of Palm Beach West Residences. Residents of Metro Park enjoy the convenience of having an open park, a couple of malls, several office towers, and a college within its own township.
In Quezon City, Federal Land designed The Capital Towers for people in need of a home office in a highly strategic location of the central business district.
In Marikina, Federal Land’s Marquinton Residences, Tropical Garden City, and Siena Towers are built with the strongest materials and innovative engineering so these condominium towers can withstand earthquakes.
In Cebu, Federal Land developed the first branded residence, Marco Polo Residences, where residents enjoy hotel-living with the hotel a la carte services and beyond the usual amenities from the five-star Marco Polo Plaza.
The Legacy Continues
This year, Federal Land is set to rise with more landmark projects that will add prestige to the evolving skyline of the country. In the emerging Bay Area business district of Pasay, Federal Land will introduce Mi Casa, a vibrant vertical neighbourhood reminiscent of Hawaii’s reinvigorating aesthetic of open sea and air. Its first tower, Hawaii, brings in Hawaii’s modern tropical paradise streamlined for Filipino contemporary living.
In the Makati Central Business District, Federal Land partners with SM Prime Holdings to bring in the world-renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners to develop an ultra-luxury condominium project. The project, called The Estate Makati, is set to be to be the crowning jewel of the Makati skyline and is expected to put the Philippines on the map of modern architectural marvels.
These are clear testaments that we remain true to the promise of Federal Land to the Filipino people.
As what our former Group Chairman, Dr. George S.K. Ty, would say, “Federal Land started with a simple dream. The dream to build a great home for each and every person.”

Mitsukoshi Mall is a Japanese retail giant
Founded in 17th century Tokyo as a kimono shop, Mitsukoshi is Japan’s oldest department store. It offers a first class selection of international and local merchandise within a classic Renaissance-style building. Mitsukoshi is known to travelers who frequent Japan, primarily the Ginza district. Mitsukoshi is also in Taiwan, China, Italy, and the USA.
The Portal to Flawless Japanese Skin
Want that flawless Japanese skin? Philippine Mitsukoshi beauty section will carry cosmetics and skin care products from Japan. The Supermarket will carry an array of Japanese green tea, seafood, and sweets.
Adding to the numerous ramen-yas, sushi bars, shabu shabu hot pots, tempura shops, donburi restaurants, takoyaki stalls, and kaiseki ryokans in Metro Manila is the authentic Japanese food court of Philippine Mitsukoshi. Vogue named Ginza Mitsukoshi as one of the best Japanese underground food halls so we are surely in for a treat.
Service from the Heart
Mitsukoshi is also bringing Japan’s unique brand of customer service. The staff of Philippine Mitsukoshi will be trained in Omotenashi or “service from the heart”.
Mitsukoshi Philippines Will Open in 2021
The Philippine Mitsukoshi will be part of the first Japanese-inspired condominium in the Philippines, The Seasons Residence of Federal Land Inc. in partnership with Nomura Real Estate Development and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Lt. The Seasons Residences will feature Japanese elements of functionality, safety, harmony with the environment and simplicity.

Residents will enjoy Japanese-inspired landscapes and amenities such as wellness spas, sky garden, dry garden, BBQ terrace, karaoke, swimming pools, fitness gym, library, business centers and function halls.
Federal Land partners with Nomura Real Estate Development and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. to build The Seasons Residences and first Mitsukoshi Mall in the country
Japan is known to be a world leader in state-of-the-art technology and design that lean towards functionality and elegant simplicity. Despite their modern way of life, the Japanese’s reverence for their rich culture, architecture, and mother nature is just one of the many reasons why millions of people flock to the Land of the Rising Sun every year.
Soon, people in the Philippines won’t have to travel to Japan to experience the Japanese way of life, because they can own a piece of Japan in the thriving metropolis of Bonifacio Global City.
Federal Land, Inc., one of the country’s top real estate companies, has partnered with two of the biggest names in Japan’s prime real estate and retail industries – Nomura Real Estate Development and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, Inc. – to bring a piece of Japan to Bonifacio Global City in Taguig – The Seasons Residences.
The three corporate giants have expressed their delight in this partnership.
“We look forward to our fruitful partnership with Nomura Real Estate and Isetan Mitsukoshi and we’re very excited to bring a piece of Japanese life to the Philippines. We know a lot of Filipinos and expatriates would love to get a Japanese experience within the comforts of their own home. The Seasons Residences is the first of its kind in the country where residents can live, shop, and dine the Japanese way,” shared Mr. Alfred V. Ty, Chairman of Federal Land, Inc.
“As a company, we look for equally strong partners in every project. We consider it an honor to bring the excellence that Nomura Real Estate is known for and to share it with the Philippines. We’re very happy to find a good partner in Federal Land Inc. so we can transform our vision of integrating all that is precious to people and communities into reality,” said Mr. Eiji Kutsukake, Chairman of Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd.
“We know how much Filipinos love to go to the mall to shop and eat, or simply just to relax, so we hope Filipinos will enjoy their Mitsukoshi Mall experience. We are excited to open the first mall of its kind in the Philippines,” said Mr. Toshihiko Sugie, President and CEO of Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd.
The Seasons Residences is a US $400-million joint venture among the three companies. It will be a mixed-use, integrated lifestyle center that will be home to four residential towers ranging from 41 to 51 levels. The over-all design will reflect the harmonious balance between Japanese technology, architecture, and Filipino hospitality.
The First Mitsukoshi Mall in the Philippines
At the heart of The Seasons Residences is the very first Mitsukoshi Mall in the Philippines, offering a uniquely Japanese mall-going experience.
The stores and restaurants at Mitsukoshi Mall will be carefully curated to reflect the brand’s dedication to providing the ultimate Japanese shopping experience. Mall-goers can expect a selection of Japanese homegrown brands, restaurants offering authentic Japanese fare, and well-known international brands. Mitsukoshi Mall will be home to Japanese brands that won’t be found anywhere else in the country.
Mitsukoshi Mall is bringing its signature supermarket to elevate one’s grocery experience. Shoppers can expect a wide array of high-quality goods from Japan, which can be found in the supermarket’s own sweets shop, fresh items section, and premium food court.
Mitsukoshi Mall will always have something for any kind of shopper — from those who are in search of the latest and premium beauty products, to those who are seeking entertainment and those who wish to have their fill of great food. Mitsukoshi Mall is set to be the ideal mall that one can go to everyday for unique shopping finds and gastronomic offers.
A Combination of Japanese Elements and Filipino Hospitality
“The residential towers of The Seasons Residences will focus on four key aspects: functionality, safety, harmony with the environment, and Japanese technology,” said Mr. Ty of Federal Land, Inc.
The developers worked together to find the harmonious balance between Japanese elements and Filipino hospitality. This balance is reflected in the buildings’ architecture and design, as well as its amenities. Japanese technology and design principles were observed to convey the style, convenience, and eco-friendliness of Japanese living.
Uniquely Japanese storage solutions, like kitchen floor cabinets and a spacious shoe rack, are installed in each unit to maximize every inch of usable space and to keep everything organized.
At The Seasons Residences, innovative Japanese technology is optimized to ensure safety and security. The Seasons Residences is equipped with the most advanced technology to withstand strong winds and vibrations that may be caused by earthquakes and typhoons. All four towers incorporate a sophisticated damper system, a breakthrough in earthquake vibration control technology. The damper system is used in some of the tallest buildings and structures in the world, including the world’s longest suspension bridge, the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge in Japan. Indoor security features include a state-of-the-art keycard access system for the elevators and main doors. To address environmental concerns and conserve resources, eco-friendly solutions like energy-efficient lights and Japanese-branded ecological bathroom fixtures, are installed in every unit.
The Seasons Residences is dedicated to bringing all these technologies to Filipinos seeking for a better way of living. Residents can even share this metropolitan sanctuary with friends and families with a unique feature, The Guest House. Located at the amenity deck, the Guest House features a Japanese-inspired tea room and a spacious bedroom, so guests can rest, relax, and experience the Japanese lifestyle for themselves.
Living in Harmony with Nature
Channeling Japan’s deep respect for nature, the amenity floor of The Seasons Residences is designed after the four seasons: Haru (spring), Natsu (summer), Aki (autumn), and Fuyu (winter).
Haru/Spring brings the season of activities, whether indoors or outdoors. This section of the amenity floor houses the gym with top-of-the-line equipment as well as a lush garden, which could either be a great place for a picnic with the whole family or some alone time to meditate and find your inner zen.
Natsu/Summer means a refreshingly fun time at the pool. The Seasons Residences has a separate pool for kids and adults, ensuring safety and maximizing the fun. Only a few steps away are the karaoke station and game room for all forms of entertainment. Function rooms are also available for family reunions and get-togethers.
Aki/Autumn encourages one’s creativity, so residents can make use of the well-appointed business center and the music studio to make sure they can channel their creative juices when inspiration hits.
Fuyu/Winter is about staying at home and finding ways to soothe the mind and body. Residents can visit the dry garden to meditate and reflect, or spend some time in the spa to detoxify.
There’s a reason why people love going to Japan. Whatever your reason may be, you’ll find it soon at The Seasons Residences.

I can confidently say that Federal Land played a significant role in my life since I was able to suffice not only my wants but also my family’s need.
