The small business sector is growing and because of this, more and more people are now opting for an abode which could also double up as their work place. After all, being close to the office and being your own boss are just some of the major attractions of a home-office or an enterprise run at home.
With this concept in mind, leading property developer Federal Land thus introduced a new concept in condo living that offers a more innovative and affordable way of owning a home and an office, all at the same time. Called “my HOBS,” which is short for my home, office, business and shopping, is a home-office innovation being introduced for the first time at Federal Land’s residential high-rises in Quezon City called The Capital Towers, and at Paseo de Roces in Makati.
The my HOBS units at The Capital Towers and Paseo de Roces can be converted into an office, business or shop. Professionals can start their own business here by using it as a law office, a photography studio, a tutorial classroom or a dental clinic, for example. my HOBS can also be a space for an entrepreneur’s start-up business such as a flower shop or a small clothing store.
A 25-square meter “my HOBS “pad at the Beijing Tower, The Capital Towers’ second tower, can be acquired for as low as P8,500 per month. A homebuyer can acquire two adjacent units, one serving as office and the other as home. The owner can run a business or practice a profession at the comfort of his/her home. The Beijing Tower has 40 sqm one-bedroom units and 50 sqm two-bedroom units that can also be divided into a home and an office.
Aside from affordability and functionality, all units at The Capital Towers have stylish and elegant interiors conducive for living and conducting business. The living, dining and bedroom areas have wood plank flooring. The kitchen has ceramic tiles, modular cabinets and countertops. The bathroom has ceramic tiles, shower and lavatory set. The ceiling height is generous. Glass window panes allow the most natural lighting and ventilation.
“my HOBS” residents and clients can feel the prestige of living or visiting at The Capital Towers with its grand driveway or “porte cochere” for convenient drop-offs, themed lobbies, security systems, high-speed elevators, fire alarm and suppression system, 24-hour standby generator and sewage treatment plant.
The earning potential of a “my HOBS” business can never be underestimated. The residents of The Capital Towers and Paseo de Roces are a captured market. Aside from the residents of the Capital Towers’ 35-storey Beijing Tower, residents at the completed Athens Tower and the soon-to-be-launched Rio tower are also potential customers and clients of “my HOBS” businesses. There are 230 “my HOBS” units in Beijing Tower and their residents or entrepreneurs can also serve each other’s needs.
