Family finds an ideal new home.

Valentine's Day is always special for Robert Wong and wife Carla Maye. This year, however, it was extra special. It was the day they received the keys to their new home at Flair Towers, DMCI Homes' resort-themed residential condominium community in Mandaluyong City.

Flair Towers became a celebration of love for the Wongs when they came over with their baby to see their two-bedroom unit in the 25th floor of South Tower, one of two 40-story buildings in the community now ready for occupancy.

"We're very excited for our new home. We've waited for this for three years," said Carla.

Robert recalled, "We bought the unit in April 2011, just before we got married. Seeing the unit today, it was worth the wait. It's very nice."

Flair Towers has fully functional, elegantly designed and spacious studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units. The Wongs find their choice perfect for their small family.

"The two-bedroom unit is just right. We only have one kid," said Robert.

When the couple decided to buy their own home, they checked other DMCI Homes condo communities, which they also found nice and of good quality. But the location of Flair Towers at the corner of Reliance and Pines Streets in Barangay Highway Hills became the top reason for choosing the community.

"It's near Makati, near Manila, near Taguig. It's also very safe and very accessible. MRT is very near and lots of public transportation," Robert said. "It's also closer to my business in Boni."

Flair Towers is surrounded by major roads, including Pioneer Street and Shaw Boulevard, giving residents convenient access to public transportation. The MRT Boni Avenue station is just two blocks from the corner of Reliance Street and EDSA.

The community is also within the Ortigas-Mandaluyong central business district with the Shangri-La Mall, Starmall, Robinsons Place Pioneer, SM Megamall, The Podium, and Metrowalk just less than 10 minutes walk away. Also nearby are the Lourdes School Mandaluyong, University of Asia & the Pacific, Poveda Learning Center, La Salle Greenhills, The Medical City and Cardinal Santos Medical Center.

Another consideration of the family for choosing Flair Towers is its amenities.

Recreational amenities occupy almost 60 percent of the 1.4-hectare complex to blend structure with nature. There is a Central Amenity Core hosting recreational facilities and spots such as a basketball court, jogging trail, playground, and the Pool Complex with its lap pool, kiddie pool, lounge pool, shower area, palm promenade, alfresco view decks, picnic grounds, and pavilions. Lush landscape adds to the pleasure of relaxation and courtyards serve as private, rhythmic spaces to pause, relax and rejuvenate.

Each tower has function rooms for family celebrations and fitness gyms. A grand lobby with wireless Internet-connected common lounges greets residents and guests. The South Tower even has a music room equipped with instruments.

DMCI Homes' trademark Lumiventt design provides breezeways at the end of each floor, Sky Patios or three-story high opening at the front and back of each building, garden atriums every five floors, and Sky Lounge, Observation Decks and jacuzzi at the rooftop. These architectural features allow residents to enjoy natural ventilation and illumination within the building.

There is a four-level basement parking, six high-speed elevators per building and garbage rooms per floor. A property management office takes care of the general maintenance and 24/7 roving security for common areas, organizing of social events, and newspaper delivery.

"What we saw here in Flair, I don't think we would be sorry that we bought the unit," said Robert. "I can see my family living here for quite some time."
