2.6 out of 5

The Good - Placed at the edge of Bonifacio Global City, The Icon Residences is located at an ideal spot overlooking Forbes Park and Manila Golf and Country Club. The individual towers are strikingly shaped like an eye, making them stand out in the BGC horizon.

The Bad - The maiden project of a new development group, their initial venture seems to falter going into the long-run as evidenced by lackluster property management after their turnover. Likewise, there are some issues with the plumbing and construction.

Property Management
The Icon Residences look good at a distance. However, the property management doesn’t look as good when viewed close up. Entering the lobby of Tower 2, one gets the impression that the reception area had seen better days with its off-white walls, marks on the glass tables, dingy rugs, and even marks on the high ceiling. Admittedly, there were repainting works that were being done on the exterior façade of the towers. Likewise, the property management office has reportedly been responsive to queries and complaints from residents (including instituting stricter policies against the number of guests brought in by residents).
The human security factor at The Icon Residences compound is quite visible, starting at the gatehouse leading to the inner driveway of the towers. Likewise, stationary and roving security guards are politely watching everyone in the common areas, though there did seem to be a lack of human security presence at the back of the compound. There are the usual CCTVs throughout the common areas, including the elevators and the floor corridors. However, the metal barricade leading to the underground parking had reportedly been under maintenance for some time. Likewise, anyone given access to the underground parking can go straight to any of the residential levels without having to go through the security check at the lobby.
The Icon Residences has the usual common areas and amenities found in any condo, with a gym, swimming pools for adults and children, a playground, mailbox drops at the lobby of each building, and a reception area. The only thing that offsets this set up is the nicely designed, somewhat relaxing garden area at the back of the lobby area, complete with rock-studded water fountains.
Unit Quality
The developers of The Icon Residences seem have been going for the Ayala aesthetic when they designed the condominiums. However, it didn’t really work that well. First, the off-white paneled walls of the reception area seem too bare given the number of art pieces scattered around the lobby. Second, the glass windows and walls of the building might look nice but the air-condition and the ventilation of the lobby, the floor corridors, and the units are unable to cope with the summer afternoon heat. Third, the large air-condition units of each individual unit are clumsily and obtrusively located underneath the windows. Fourth, there is some off-putting space allocation due to the non-squarish designs of the corner units (which are the corners of the “eye”-shaped towers). Lastly, the quality of the plumbing of the units leave something to be desired.
The Icon Residences is located at a prime location: the edge of Fort Bonifacio overlooking Manila Golf and Forbes Park and Makati City in the distance. This means the towers will never have its view blocked by any other building. There are several banks, restaurants, convenience stores, and fast food outlets that are walking distance from the buildings. Likewise, there aren’t a lot of vehicles passing by, giving their spot a nice, cozy, and quiet isolation.

Icon is a fantastic place to live in! It's a brand new building with management and staff that really care about the tenants. Sound like a dream? That's because it is! The building has 24 hour security who is very friendly and helpful, a hot tub, a brand new gym, garage parking, and beautiful rooftop views a combination of urban and greenery! The units are beautiful: new appliances, hardwood floors in the kitchen, carpet in the bedrooms, big bathrooms....I could go on. The neighborhood is also great. It's close to the financial district makati and bgc, burgos circle restaurants, the mind museum, SM Aura and High Street is two blocks away. Finally, and probably most importantly for most people, the prices are really good for brand new units in that location. If you're looking for a new building in an awesome location with great neighbors, this place is for you!

This might just be the best condo building in the whole BGC. I've lived here for a year and I love it.
