St. Francis Shangri-la Place (PENTHOUSE)

The towering St. Francis Shangri-La Place is the tallest residential development in the country today. This architectural landmark is located in the Shangri-La Place integrated community at the heart of the vibrant Ortigas Center, adjacent to the Shangri-La Plaza mall and the Edsa Shangri-La hotel. At the pinnacle of this stunning glass clad edifice are eight individual Penthouse units, richly designed and setting new standards in high living.

To help buyers appreciate living in their own corner of the sky, The St. Francis Shangri-La Place developers, Shang Properties Inc. and Hong Kong based interior designers Hospitality and Leisure Asia, upgraded the standard fixtures of Penthouse B in Tower 2, fitting it out with luxurious fabrics and wall coverings, dazzling lighting fixtures, the latest in kitchen gadgets, and a landscaped 61st floor pool deck.

The results are nothing short of magnificent.

The living room is a fusion of casual elegance and modernism, featuring floor to ceiling glass windows with views of Metro Manila’s cityscape, as far as the eye can see. The soaring seven-meter high ceilings and flooring beautifully accentuated with imported ceramic tiles are elements that provide a sense of space and style
