Metro Manila is teeming with people from all walks of life. As millions of Filipinos compete for real estate on a mere 619 square kilometers of land, the city-dweller can’t help but be thankful for pockets of tranquility and short travel times, which the best cities have. Here are four of them:
1. Makati City
Finding ample breathing space amidst the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila can be a challenge. If you have your sights set on Makati, Rockwell Center offers a refreshing change of pace from the frenetic central business district. It’s home to a number of condominiums, and within walking distance is Power Plant Mall, where you can find cozy restaurants like The Wholesome Table, Mamou! Too, and The Glasshouse by Harlan + Holden Dine.
The pubs and speakeasies of Bel-Air and Poblacion—great spots for unwinding after work—are also a stone’s throw away from Rockwell. For young professionals looking to settle down and live comfortably, this city within a city is a great choice.
2. Pasig City
Pasig has done away with plastic bags, encouraged the use of e-bikes and e-jeepneys, and maintained a rainforest park, all to ensure that it lives up to its reputation as a “green city.” Thanks in large part to the local government’s efforts, the city was recognized in 2013 as one of the most livable communities in the world.
Pasig is also located in the central part of Metro Manila, which makes the rest of greater Manila within reach. Young families looking for a more sustainable way of life can settle fast and easy at The Grove, a green development surrounded by schools, restaurants, retail establishments, and a reputable hospital.
3. Parañaque City
If you have a more laid-back lifestyle, Parañaque might be for you. BF Homes, in particular, is known for its relaxed atmosphere, pedestrian-friendly streets, and vibrant restaurant scene. It’s also a short drive from Alabang’s business district, schools, and commercial establishments, so you can have some peace and quiet without forgoing the convenience of city life. Here, you can live harmoniously and enjoy the best of both worlds.
4. Quezon City
With an exciting restaurant scene, Katipunan has become a thriving academic district in Quezon City—the largest city in Metro Manila. Families with school-age children can soon settle in The Arton by Rockwell, which will provide a nurturing space with its earth-toned suites and co-working spaces, vast greenery, swimming pools, and a multi-purpose court. With 80 percent open space, The Arton will give you a sweeping view of the Sierra Madre mountains and the Ortigas skyline.
The Arton aims to imprint in Katipunan the signature brand of lifestyle, exclusivity, and security Rockwell offers. The generous living spaces nestled within the 1.6-hectare property offers a peaceful and secure community that’s in close proximity to virtually everything a family needs.
Whether you’re looking for excitement or seeking serenity, you’ll find a community that’s right for you in Metro Manila. For an upgraded urban experience, consider making The Arton your new address.
