Why the city of Mandaluyong is an ideal address in Metro Manila
Urban renewal is one of the most sustaining and vital projects of today. It’s a strategy that revitalizes the current city status in hopes of making it better. Hence, this increases land value, city productivity and revenue, and it also improves the area’s transit system, security, roads and infrastructures. These are some of the reasons why initiatives on making the cities more livable, efficient, and convenient are without a doubt a good start.
Currently, many cities in Metro Manila are already undergoing this transition like Taguig, Pasay and the roaring Tiger City – Mandaluyong. It is dubbed as the “Heart of Metro Manila” bordered by the cities of Manila to the west, San Juan to the north, Quezon City to its northeast, Pasig to the east and Makati to the south. Albeit the sixth smallest city in the country, with a total land area of 11.06 sq. km., yet it has been recognized as the “Tiger City of the Philippines” because of its drastic development.
This then quiet suburb has transformed into a bustling city which houses one of the economic capital of the Philippines–the Ortigas Center, in partnership with the City of Pasig. It is a progressive central business district with large shopping malls, office spaces, world-class lifestyle centres, entertainment hubs, and residential properties. Mandaluyong is also home to many big establishments in the country like Asian Development Bank, San Miguel Corporation, SM Megamall and Shangri-la Plaza.
You will also be entertained here with its fun and unique hole-in-the-wall restos, large shopping malls, and recreational hubs that will satisfy your daily cravings. If you’re thinking of getting into this area, there’ll be no need to worry because it has a direct link to roads like EDSA and Shaw Boulevard, which are commuter-friendly! You may take a bus from north to south and vice versa, or take a PUV to travel the inner streets of Mandaluyong, as well as to get to EDSA. To quickly travel to other business districts and key places in the metro, hop on to the Shaw Boulevard station of MRT-3.
Residential areas are also in the height of demand since Mandaluyong’s population is also booming, along with its economic status. There are many mid-to-high-rise condominiums that open doors for every aspiring city dweller to reach their urban dreams.
