Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Filipinos who now have the purchasing power to buy their own dwellings likely grew up watching Japanese shows and dreamed of visiting Japan back then. Now that they are all grown up, they can afford to buy their own technologically advanced homes reminiscent of the creativity and ingenuity of Japan.
Our love for anything kawaii or mecha also extends to Japanese cuisine and fashion. More than 1300 Japanese restaurants abound here, showing that Filipinos love Japanese food. Popular clothing and apparel brands from the Land of the Rising Sun have set up shop here. They are also on the lookout for the latest cars, the best electronic gaming devices, and high-tech appliances. Thanks to Japanese pop culture, Filipinos are also enticed to discover more about its values, often visiting the country or dreaming of migrating there.
The next best thing to living in Japan is owning a piece of it. Three companies in the real estate industry have finally made that possible. The country’s premier real estate developer Federal Land, Inc. teamed up with Japan’s leading firms Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd. and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. to develop The Seasons Residences — the first mixed-used development with a distinct Japanese concept. This year, the partnership launched its third residential tower — Aki Tower. The launch of Aki Tower follows the first two towers Haru and Natsu.
Set to rise in Federal Land’s master-planned community Grand Central Park in Bonifacio Global City, The Seasons Residences features Japanese-inspired residences, curated amenities, and the first MITSUKOSHI department store in the country.
Strategically located in Bonifacio Global City along 8th Avenue, The Seasons Residences rises next to Grand Hyatt Manila within Grand Central Park, a 10-hectare master-planned community developed by Federal Land in Bonifacio Global City. It is a stone’s throw away from the St. Luke’s Medical Center, Philippine Stock Exchange, embassies, corporate offices, international schools, parks, and places of worship.
