Last September 15, 2013, Wil Tower Mall, the four-story atrium that serves as the commercial component of Wil Tower, was formally opened to the public. Vista Residences Chairman Manuel “Manny” Villar graced the occasion as a guest of honor, his appearance a proof of the real estate company’s full support and commitment to what is touted to be the tallest twin towers in Quezon City.
“The first residential tower will be turned-over to investors and residents by the end of the year,” says Elizabeth M. Kalaw, Vista Residences’ Division Head. “We have made sure that even before they occupy their units, the mall is already operational to offer them a wide array of retail, dining and leisure experiences. “
With a total area of 14,000 square meters and occupying the first four floors of the development, Wil Tower Mall features popular establishments that include Starbucks, Draft, Pho Hoa, My Thai Restaurant, Bench Fix Salon, Bench Body, and the premium Apple products reseller Beyond the Box. In addition, it also features the fine dining WBR Wil Bar and Restaurant and the English pub called Draft.
Wil Tower Mall, with its unique combination of upscale lifestyle brands and dining destinations, is the first of its kind to be part and parcel of a condominium’s overall design. Defining the atrium is the breathtaking chandelier creation—made from hand-hammered steel, acrylic-cast butterflies and LED system—by Kenneth Cobonpue. This unique artwork resonates with Quezon City’s positioning as a veritable artistic hub.
Located along Eugenio Lopez Dr. in Quezon City, Wil Tower offers a multitude of amenities alongside the mall. Vista Residences has pulled all the stops in bringing together a leisure and entertainment hub comprised of a swimming pool, a fully-fitted gym, a spa, an audio-video room, a game room and a day-care center. In combination with Wil Tower Mall, these amenities mean that residents don’t have to leave the comforts of their space to relax and take a break. The good life is literally right by their doorsteps or downstairs.
Residents also have a peace of mind knowing that Wil Tower will be managed by the property development firm under Vista Residences. The company, which has more than 30 years of solid experience in the real estate industry, will be on hand to keep the project in tip-top shape, which is meant to protect, secure and grow the investment of residents.
“Since the real estate company is also the project manager, this means that there will be a smooth flow from the turnover to the upkeep of the units,” says Kalaw. “The residents don’t have to deal with a third-party when it comes to their concerns about their homes and the common areas. Since we were the one who built the development, we have a good understanding on how to readily and effectively address their issues.”
Just like the first, the second tower will have space provisions that range from 25 sq.m. studio units to 65 sq.m. two-bedroom units. Future residents will also have access to the high-end mall and prime amenities.
Aside from the built-in features, Wil Tower boasts of a centralized location. It is walking distance to leading broadcast networks (ABS-CBN and GMA 7) and mere minutes away from select malls (Trinoma and SM North Edsa), hospitals (St. Lukes Hospital and Capitol Medical Center) and institutions of learning (University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University and Miriam College). Wil Tower is also in close proximity to the well-appointed cafés and fine-dining restaurants of Timog Avenue and Tomas Morato.
