Manila Projects of PRO-FRIENDS

Usually, Property Company of Friends Inc or PRO-FRIENDS holds housing projects in Cavite. Its flagship project, Lancaster New City, is found in Cavite. But Profriends also established projects in other locations like Pampanga, Iloilo, Nueva Ecija, and Manila. There are a few developments in Manila as well, all vertical developments namely Mahogany Mansion, One Primrose Place, and Ilustrata Residences.

Mahogany Mansion
The Mahogany Mansion is situated along San Rafael St. Mandaluyong city. The low-rise Mediterranean style façade looks like a townhouse yet it is a condominium, making it really look homey instead of a gray concrete space that’s rampant in new condos today. The location is flood-free and accessible to main roads, public transportation, and commercial establishments. Mandaluyong city is in the heart of Manila so it is accessible to various Metro Manila cities like Makati, Pasig, Taguig, Manila, San Juan, and Quezon City. It is also accessible to various city business districts.
One Primrose Place
One Primrose Place is another low-rise condominium that has a modern elegant façade. Like Mahogany Mansion, its location is flood-free and accessible to main roads, public transportation and commercial establishments. The wide spaces of the units make it fit for families who still want to take refuge within the country’s urban jungle. The units are affordable, too, compared to other condo spaces from other developers.
Ilustrata Residences
Ilustrata Residences is the newest vertical development that Pro Friends is pursuing. It takes inspiration from the classic Spanish houses surrounding it but with an added flair of modern aesthetics.

Ilustrata Residences is located along Boni Serrano Avenue in Quezon City. Perfectly fitted in New Manila, Ilustrata Residences can be accessed through various main roads and routes. The flood-free location makes it hassle-free for unit owners and guests. Parking spaces are also available, but limited only so best that buyers reserve early. Religious centers, malls, hospitals, schools, public transportation and commercial establishments are also nearby.

Ilustrata Residences is a mid-rise condominium that has 6 towers in total. So far, Tower Luna and Tower Jaena are being developed. These towers are made up of studio units and 1-bedroom units. But Tower Jaena offers bi-level or loftable 1-bedroom units. The condo project offers amenities like multipurpose hall, function room, zen park, outdoor pool deck, kiddie pool, wading pool, and lap pool.

Like most of PROFRIENDS’ projects, Ilustrata Residences offer affordable living spaces using transparent and flexible financial schemes. No hidden charges apply.
It is quite exciting that Pro Friends actually develop residential spaces in Manila. It means that affordable quality housing can now be enjoyed by many Manileños. The condo spaces being offered now by other developers are pricey sometimes. Is it because of the name or brand they have established? Is it because of the means they have marketed their developments? Or is it because they consider profits more than the home-buying capabilities of the average Filipino? Hopefully, Profriends will also develop houses or residential communities in Manila that are still within the buying power of middle-class citizens.
