The Philippines’ first and only Olympic gold medalist, Hidilyn Diaz, can now officially call Eastwood City her home. This was revealed by Megaworld Corporation as Diaz received her gift today when she visited the Megaworld office. If you can remember, the real property giant promised this Eastwood City condo for Diaz just after her historic win in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The generous gift is not just an Eastwood City Condominium but a winning township lifestyle fit for the Olympic champion. Read more.
Eastwood City Condo Fit for the Champ
The 30-year-old Diaz received her fully-furnished two-bedroom condominium unit at the 47-storey Eastwood City, valued at P14-million. Located at One Eastwood Avenue, this was the gift promised by tycoon Dr. Andrew L. Tan and property giant Megaworld when Ms. Diaz bagged the Olympic gold for the Philippines a couple of weeks ago.
The unit, which was specially curated by Megaworld’s in-house interior design team, comes complete with furniture, fixtures, and home appliances.
“All that Hidilyn and her family need to do is just bring their clothes and other personal effects and they are good to stay in the unit. We are excited to welcome her and her family and loved ones to Eastwood City, particularly in this newest residential condominium tower in our first-ever township. She has brought so much pride to our country and she deserves all these rewards for her hard work in raising our flag so high in the Tokyo Olympics.” This was stated by Kevin L. Tan, chief strategy officer, Megaworld. He is the son of the real estate magnate, Dr. Tan.
Also lending a nostalgic feel to Diaz’s new space is a commissioned charcoal painting by 21-year-old fine arts student, John Ken Gomez. It captured two images of Diaz’s historic and emotional moment at the Tokyo Olympics, and a special message from Megaworld that says, ‘Thank you for lifting our country up high.’ This is prominently displayed in the unit’s living room.
“The story of Hidilyn’s victory is a great source of inspiration for Filipinos. I hope every time she looks at that artwork, she will be reminded that she is a symbol of hope and pride for all of us,” Gomez shares.
A Winning Township Lifestyle at Eastwood City
The gift is not just an Eastwood City Condominium but a winning township lifestyle fit for the Olympic champion. She can now start building her family in this safe and secure neighborhood.
As an owner of a condo unit, Diaz and her family can enjoy the first-class amenities of One Eastwood Avenue. These include a badminton court at the roof deck, landscaped gardens, a lap pool with pool seat jets, paved sunbathing lounge, and seating area. It also has a bar with indoor and outdoor lounge. Moreover, they can relax at the skygardens located on the 8th, 18th, and 28th floors of the tower.
Other amenities at One Eastwood Avenue include:
- kiddie pool and a wading pool
- male and female shower and changing rooms
- kids’ playground
- children’s playroom
- reflexology path
- meditation garden
- a yoga and Pilates room
- function rooms
- an outdoor chess area
- game room
- fitness center
At the fitness center, Hidilyn can spend time practicing her sport as well as staying fit.
Since One Eastwood Avenue is in a township setting, malls and commercial centers, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, banks, pet shops, retail stores, a hotel, and even a church are just a walk away. All these necessities are easily accessible without driving or commuting.
“It will be a very convenient lifestyle for Hidilyn and her family. In fact, there are other celebrities and renowned personalities who have also chosen Eastwood City as their home for many years now because of this,” adds Tan.
