Serenity

Serendra is a high-end, low-density condominium development of Ayala Land in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City. Even before the condominium towers were finished, Serendra's two-level dining and shopping esplanade—the only part open to the public—had already become popular among Metro Manila's privileged classes. Serendra is much more alive and exciting at night than during the day.

Yet another call to CDP bloggers! We have a special theme day on January 15: Best Photo of 2009. "Best" is how you define it, however. Also, our February 1 theme is Wood and the March theme poll is up so please vote! And please help spread the word—too few people are voting and we don't know if the themes actually reflect the community's preferences.

Interesting angle on this complex. Okay, now I'll go vote in the poll.

Jacob said...

Did you say "low-density"? What would be considered "high density" if not this?

Pretty place, whatever. Not being among the privileged classes, though, I'll have to depend upon you to tell more about it.

Paula said...

You really get around Hilda. Have you been inside?
Thanks for all the work you do moderating for us. And now I'm heading off to vote!

Agree with the interesting angle of your photography. Wonder why there has to be a part which isn't allowed to be seen by anyone else.

A wonderful Tuesday for you.

Halcyon said...

I'm going to post my vote right now. Nice street scene.

Leif Hagen said...

Any place with Palm trees is good! Looks like a fancy, lovely place to live and play!
Thanks for the theme day updates - I didn't know until your posting! Bravo encore, Hilda!

I definitely like the idea of mixed use retail + residential. Sounds ideal!

Ken Mac said...

beau panorama de cette résidence, avec une couleur vraiment originale

I was also surprised by your term "low-density" here. I guess it's all in what you're used to isn't it?

Thank you for the CDP theme reminder. I'm guilty of not voting for this last one so go ahead, slap my hand.

Dina said...

Thanks for reminding.

After living in the country, I find this or any city dwelling too high density.

VP said...

I love the idea of low-density and the place ooks nice. Are the white things some kind of public art?

About Theme Days you are right, few people are voting and I'm one of them. In my case it is because themes are always more abstract and less 'city' oriented.

Beautiful shot Hilda, I liked a lot it!
And this place for sure is charming!

There is so much sunny yellow here.

Lois said...

I like the name of this place and I also like the yellow.

Per Stromsjo said...

Does look like some kind of artwork, doesn't it?

High or low density - I imagine a privileged neighborhood has less crime and less social tension, day and night. Same story everywhere.

Hilda said...

Jacob:
Imagine this same space but the buildings are taller — much, much taller.

VP:
Yes, those white things are public art. The entire complex is dotted with sculptures and water features.

VP said...

I hope you'll show us some of them...

I like your perspective on this street scene. It certainly looks pretty from here.

Andreea said...

Nice perspective! Can't say I'm a fan of developments of this kind but you managed to make this look inviting :)
