Achieving World-Class Standards in Real Estate

World-class is an international standard of excellence of the highest degree. Not all real estate developments in the Philippines can be identified as such, only a few have actually strived to achieve the quality worthy of its definition. 

Picar Development, Inc. was established to serve as the premium residential and commercial developer of the country’s leading Information Technology Educational Institution, the AMA Group of Companies. Picar Development Inc.’s commitment is to provide globally benchmarked real estate developments that are focused towards significantly enhancing the Filipinos’ standard of living.

“Picar Development was formed with one strong vision,” shared Picar Chairman Amb. Amable R. Aguiluz V. “Our vision of greater things allows us to innovate and create projects that are at par with several premium developments from various parts of the world.”

Picar Development’s mission to build real estate developments that embody its world-class standard of innovation is evident in all its existing developments as each one was conceptualized with meticulous attention to detail and passion for excellence in mind.

Its flagship development, The Picar Place is located along Kalayaan Avenue in Makati City, now recognized as the new cosmopolitan hub for high-end residential living and global hospitality where sophisticated urban dwellers and expatriates frequent. The Picar Place site used to be part of the former location of the International School of Manila. But now, with Picar’s formidable presence and its unique & vibrant concept of the ultimate world-class residential lifestyle experience, it has transformed this former school campus into an emerging Makati lifestyle hub.

The pride of Picar Place is its premier iconic development, The Stratford Residences. Soon to rule the Makati skyline with 74 floors (312 meters), The Stratford Residences will be the tallest residential tower in the Philippines.  This skyscraper and future national landmark promises the ultimate world-class luxury lifestyle experience by consolidating the comfort & privacy that a home provides, the convenience & security of the state-of-the-art amenities & facilities and unlimited access to sky-high luxury and international five star hospitality at its finest. 

To redefine the concept of residential lifestyle, The Stratford Residences will be an intelligent building that will be completely WI-FI and will have 12 value-added services that were designed specifically for the future residents of The Stratford Residents by Cisco Systems, the world-leader in network service design & manufacturing.

These innovative features will enable future residents access to technologically advanced services, which will be made available via subscription, such as virtual attendants, smart home, child locator, digital signage, safety and security among others.

The Stratford Residences is a world-class real estate development that is proudly Filipino-made.  Its exceptional curvilinear shape design feature has been recognized by BCI Asia — one of the country’s leading construction information service providers — as one of its top featured designs in 2009. Recently, in 2012, The Stratford Residences received international recognition when it was featured as Tallest Structure in the Philippines at the viewing deck display of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France alongside other iconic landmarks from all over the world. 

Picar Place is also home to Buddha-Bar Manila, a three-storey fine dining establishment known for its Asian fusion cuisine, distinct music and very comforting atmosphere. Buddha-Bar Manila is the 13th franchise of the world-renowned Buddha Bar Paris. Picar Development was awarded the exclusive rights to build the 1st branch in Asia and the 13th worldwide.  Buddha Bar is the preferred destination of VIPs, dignitaries & celebrities all over the world with branches in Prague, Monte Carlo, Las Vegas, Dubai among others and the brand’s largest branch in the world.  Buddha Bar Manila boasts of being the largest establishment of the brand in the world

Picar Development Inc.’s vision is to build pioneering global projects that raise the standard for real estate developments in the country. To know more about Picar and its developments, visit www.picardevelopment.com or reach us through email at inquiry@picardevelopment.com or call +632.822.3443.
