Here is the Press Release of The Loop:

Most young couples and start-up families have a specific checklist in mind when looking for a new home. The rule is to find one where they can live in comfort, convenience, and safety, especially when they have kids.

While most residential options in Cagayan de Oro fall short of these criteria, The Loop easily surpasses it all. A two-tower, 25-storey landmark condominium development of Vista Residences, The Loop offers modern high-rise homes that fit the lifestyle of newlyweds and start-up families.

Comfortable living. It offers comfortable living with its space-savvy condo units, from studio to one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units. All are thoughtfully and carefully planned and designed with the dweller’s comfort in mind.

Newlyweds and young couples will thrive in a studio or one-bedroom unit–versatile living options that can be cleaned fast and easy. It allows couples to move around fast and with ease, giving them more time to enjoy other pursuits together.

Young families with kids will find it comfortable living in a two- or three-bedroom condo unit. With the children’s room adjacent to the master bedroom, parents can rest easy knowing their kids are close, safe, and happy.

Monitoring the kids will also be a breeze even as parents prepare the family meal at the kitchen area, as they can easily see the little ones watching TV, or playing with toys or with each other at the living area.

The comfortable lifestyle goes beyond the condo units and to the whole condo property as well. From the spacious lobby with its wide, comfortable seats, 24-hour concierge, and posh but homey ambiance, residents will instantly feel at home upon stepping into The Loop.

The clubhouse called The Canopy is located at the ground level to make it easily accessible to residents who may want to relax at the lounge, or get some invigorating laps at the swimming pool while the young ones have their own fun at the kiddie pool or play area.

Taking the resident’s comfort a notch higher, The Loop offers an in-house fitness gym so residents don’t need to leave home to do their exercise regimen. There’s also a multi-purpose hall to hang around or meet friends and neighbors for an intimate social gathering.

For those who want some quiet and fantastic views of CDO, The Loop has the Sky Gardens at the penthouse level. With live plants providing a refreshing green surrounding, the Sky Garden also gives a panoramic view of the city, distant mountains, and CDO’s famous Macajalar Bay.

Convenience at its best. To rise along Rosario Crescent at the Limketkai Center, The Loop is strategically located within the central business and entertainment district of CDO, making it proximate to desired destinations and locations.

Going to work is fast and convenient, with public transport available right outside the condo property. Residents can also drive the short distance from The Loop’s central location to the workplace, or simply walk to modern office buildings within Limketkai Center.

With schools and universities only a few minutes away, dropping off and picking up the kids from school will not be a problem. And if breakfast out is part of the morning itinerary, food chains and coffee shops are easily accessible within Limketkai.

Going home is quick and sweet with the short ride or drive back home. A need to buy food or grocery items before heading home is quickly solved by a stop at any of the supermarkets, grocery, and convenience stores near The Loop.

If the kids are a little frisky for some drink or snack after being picked up from school, a visit to any of the fastfood chains and snack bars nearby will make them happy.

The busy parent who needs to attend company events or business meetings outside the office can easily come home to The Loop for some quality time with the family, have a change of clothes, and drive over to the event within the central business district.

Convenience is the rule at The Loop not only during work and school week, but also during weekends. Newlyweds or young families don’t need to go far for some weekend leisure as they can either walk, ride or drive the short distance to hundreds of dining, shopping, and recreation options in Limketkai.
