Now the great news is that you can always drive to this street in as short as 10 mins. or less when you decide to live in one of the condominiums rising as its neighbors. Three of the best bets would be Kasara Urban Resort Residences along Eagle St. in Pasig City, The Rochester along Elisco Road San Joaquin Pasig City and Pioneer Woodlands along Pioneer St. corner EDSA in Mandaluyong City. Choosing these homes has lots of great perks but for foodies like us, this makes it to our top list of reasons.
