Smart Homes: The Future of Home Design is Now at Kensington Sky Garden

The 26-storey Kensington Sky Garden will be a two-tower residential development offering 643 ‘smart home’ units. It will be located at the corner of Upper East Avenue and Bentley Street, just across the newly-opened Landers Superstore Bacolod.

Property giant Megaworld is launching its fifth residential condominium development inside its 34-hectare The Upper East township in Bacolod City. It is poised to be the tallest residential development among its Visayas townships to date.

This new Megaworld residential property is envisioned to be another iconic landmark that will redefine Bacolod’s growing skyline. For starters, both towers will be highlighted by illuminated crowns that dazzle at night. These crowns will also house the glass-clad sky lounges for residents to enjoy the panoramic views of the city, the mountains and seas, as well as the nearby islands.
