Seeing Serendra, Anticipating Meranti
Living nearby Makati, I frequent Bonifacio High Street and Serendra. However, my footprints are limited only along the premiere restaurants just outside Two Serendra going to Market Market Mall.
Until over the weekend, I got an invitation from the Ayala’s Alveo to walk around the Two Serendra residences and its other 65% greenery; including the invisible Meranti.
I never knew such wide spaces of greenery existed behind the commercial dining walls. My imagination was then restricted to the external facades of the Serendra residences.
I came to discover that Two Serendra has seven residential areas which were named after trees such as the Almond, Belize, Callery, Dolce, Encino, The Aston, and The Red Oak. The eighth would be the commercial shops outside, and soon – Meranti; the ninth.
Existing amenities include the landscaped Almond Garden area with adult and kiddie pools including a fitness center. It is also where an underground basketball and badminton courts are situated.
With continued walking, we reached Belize and Callery where another set of pools can be seen, two social halls, and a fruit orchard.
There was also a small portion which they call “sunken garden.” I was reminded of our very own back in UP Diliman, only smaller and not as ‘sunken.’
Dolce and Encino had a Koi pond and a children’s pool with water play.
We did not reach Aston and Red Oak anymore as they are across the street and an iconic bridge crossing the 26th Street is yet to be built.
The most anticipated, I believe, would be the Meranti. With about 50% of it’s units already sold, it will be Two Serendra’s third high-rise residential building come turnover on Q4 2015.
In line with area zones and amenities, the Meranti would offer the ‘Social Zone‘ where social interests would best be exemplified. A ‘Living Museum‘ and a tropical garden are just among what can be expected. A Culinary Studio equipped with kitchen facilities best suited for cooking demos and gatherings are also in the plans.
After the walking tour, we had a feel of the Culinary Studio with Chef Jackie Laudico and her chocolates entitled “A Bite of Perfection“. But this is another story; a delicious one soon in NomNomClub.com

It was a relaxing walk within the suburban community called Serendra and the imaginary Meranti. It was an afternoon of bright sun and lush greens within a modern city that is Fort Bonifacio.
