Japan is arguably one of the most fascinating destinations in the world.

This island nation—renowned globally for having a culture steeped in a perfect balance of modernity and tradition—has long been admired for its rich centuries-old customs, ceremonies, and history; the multifaceted, sophisticated lifestyles of its people; technological innovations that are rapidly progressing in a dizzying pace; an incredibly sumptuous cuisine; and beautiful natural landscapes—all of which allow you to have a glimpse into the heart and soul of Japan.

Beyond these however, Japan has also captivated the world for its people’s enviable lifestyle—one that is tranquil, simple, yet efficient, one that highlights the importance of nature, and one that is said to be the key to a “long and happy life”.

Heart and soul of Japan

Filipinos are fortunate that they can easily explore the heart and soul of Japan, and indulge in the seemingly endless discovery of unique experiences without needing to leave the country.

The Seasons Residences—a premier four-tower residential project being developed jointly by premier Philippine real estate developer Federal Land Inc. and Japan’s Nomura Real Estate Development Co. Ltd. and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd.—will be an impeccable fusion of Filipino sensibilities and Japanese expertise. Both cultures’ penchant for excellence and innovation will be reflected in this vertical community, where future residents will get to immerse in Japan’s vibrant and diverse culture through design aesthetics, timeless architecture, ingenious innovations integrated in the towers, and Japanese retail offerings.

Rising within Federal Land’s Grand Central Park community in North Bonifacio Global City, The Seasons Residences will also form part of a much bigger master planned development alongside the five-star luxury hotel that is Grand Hyatt Manila, modern upscale residences, MITSUKOSHI BGC, the first mall from this Japanese brand to rise in the country, as well as future retail and residential developments within the community.

And with the launch of its fourth and last tower, Fuyu, The Seasons Residences beckons to those who long to experience Japan beyond being just a tourist destination.

Golden opportunity

The four towers of The Seasons Residences are inspired by the seasons of Japan namely Haru (spring), Natsu (summer), Aki (autumn) and Fuyu (winter). Following the successful launch of the first three towers named after these seasons, Federal Land is now set to unveil Fuyu, which presents you with a golden opportunity to indulge in Japan’s wondrous lifestyle and culture.

Expect all four towers to be a Japanese technological marvel that will elevate known standards of safety, security, comfort, convenience, and functionality. One such impressive, life-saving feature would be the viscoelastic coupling dampers (VCDs), a breakthrough in earthquake vibration control technology that can withstand earthquakes and high winds.

Investors and homebuyers will find their units to be equipped with a unique Japanese storage system, like kitchen floor storage, shoe cabinet, and bedroom closets. Kitchens are fitted with a space-saving sink with draining and cutting boards to maximize counter space; a rangehood with Japanese oil filter technology; and air-washing tiles that minimize excessive humidity and foul odors. As leakage protection, units are equipped with a sunken slab or a below-floor drainage system for easier pipe maintenance. The development also has eco-friendly solutions like water-efficient, Japanese-branded showers and toilets in all units as well as motion sensor lighting in common areas.

The amenities will meanwhile enjoin future residents to lead a healthy, happy and holistic lifestyle. A modern gym, landscaped gardens and the swimming pool encourage an active lifestyle, while fun and creative pursuits are fostered by the karaoke room, music room, and a reading lounge. A business center will enable you to get work done, while the spa and wellness room enable you to relax right after.

Further raising the level of comfort and convenience that can be had in your future home at The Seasons Residences is the country’s first MITSUKOSHI, a four-story mall located at the podium level. An exquisite line-up of your favorite Japanese food products can now be found at MITSUKOSHI’s signature depachika brand MITSUKOSHI FRESH, while a modern beauty store features some of Japan’s well-loved natural and organic cosmetic brands at MITSUKOSHI Beauty. MITSUKOSHI BGC will soon offer more exciting Japanese lifestyle selections, products and culinary experiences. Discover these special offerings made available only at MITSUKOSHI BGC.

“As we approach the completion of The Seasons Residences and the realization of the vision behind it, we are proud to offer the distinct opportunity to own a home that embodies both Filipino hospitality and Japanese excellence. The launch of the final tower, Fuyu, marks the last chance for buyers and investors to own a home at The Seasons Residences,” said Guita Saenz-Resurreccion, Federal Land Head of Sales Group.

She continued: “With only a few units left in the first three towers, it’s clear that many are drawn to the quality that The Seasons Residences has to offer, thanks to its masterful integration of distinct Japanese designs and home innovations.”

Elevated lifestyle

More reasons will inspire you to revel in the elevated lifestyle offered by one of the metro’s most prestigious addresses today.

Aside from the fact that The Seasons Residences will rise next to Grand Hyatt Manila within Grand Central Park, it will also put you within convenient proximity to embassies, corporate offices, retail and lifestyle hubs, international schools, parks, places of worship, a world-class hospital, The Philippine Stock Exchange, among others. Connectivity is assured as this premier residence will be near major infrastructure developments such as the BGC-Ortigas Road Link, Metro Manila Subway System, BGC-NAIA Bus Rapid Transit System, and the Skytrain monorail link from BGC to Guadalupe, Makati City.
