Homeowners and homebuyers looking to expand their horizons are looking beyond Metro Manila. The surrounding areas of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal all show promise as the next big things in urban development. Cavite, in particular, is a choice destination for many Metro Manila-based workers. Cavite is an excellent residential option for people unwilling to cut ties with Metro Manila. The province has direct transportation access to the capital, lower living expenses, and cheaper real estate. Homeowners and homebuyers looking for an excellent urban retreat would want to look at the province’s many residential offerings. In particular, they would want to consider Golden Bay Landholding’s Garden City.

Manila vs Metro Manila vs Greater Manila Area

Philippine Geography 101 makes it clear that Manila and Metro Manila are different. The city of Manila is one of 16 highly urbanized cities (along with the municipality of Pateros) that together make up the country’s administrative capital region called Metropolitan (or Metro) Manila. However, rapid urbanization required further expansion, which led to the creation of the Greater Manila Area. This time, Metro Manila joined forces with its bordering provinces Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal to form a bigger contiguous urban region.

There you have it. Cavite and the other provinces are virtually part of the bigger metropolitan area. In theory, residents are already enjoying the highly urbanized living that Metro Manilans take for granted. This includes a wide road network, ample utilities like water and electricity, and stable Internet and phone lines. Thankfully, real estate prices have yet to match that of Metro Manila properties. For the home investor looking for their next venture, now’s a good time to look into Cavite properties. Those looking to maintain their condo lifestyle would find Golden Bay Landholding’s Garden City a great place to start.   

Bacoor: Gateway to South Metro Manila 

Bacoor, Cavite is the backdoor to Southern Metro Manila, as it’s literally the first place you step into once you leave the capital via the southwest. This makes the city within proximity of two thriving business districts: Makati and the Bay Area. Commuting will soon become even faster once the LRT-1 extension kicks in, adding the city to its Metro Manila-wide railway system. 

Bacoor itself is already a hive of activity. Residents won’t need to leave the city in order to find the lifestyle and entertainment centers they want during their off hours. Shopping malls, giant supermarket chains, and recreational centers can be found throughout the city. Residents have the advantage over Metro Manilans whenever weekends arrive as they’re much nearer to Cavite’s famous beaches, golf resorts, and country clubs.  

Garden City: Your Ultimate Urban Paradise 

Golden Bay Landholdings designed Garden City to provide nature-inspired modern urban living for work-weary professionals and small families. Garden City also promotes sustainability and a vibrant lifestyle with its nature-inspired design. In fact, more than half of the total project area is dedicated to gardens, open spaces, and sustainability podiums. Homeowners and residents need only to step out of their units to rejuvenate themselves with lush greenery and delightful open spaces. For environmentally-conscious residents, electric vehicle charging stations are made available in the parking area. Meanwhile, commuters can avail of the EV shuttle service between Garden City and the Zapote LRT station. As a result of its thoughtful aesthetics, Garden City bagged the Opal Outstanding Property Award in London, UK, for Property Development/Mixed-Use in 2020.   

Of course, amenities form a major part of every resident’s daily life. In Garden City, they’ll have many creature comforts so they won’t have to go anywhere else. The all-important WiFi is available throughout the development. Residents looking to shape up by breaking a sweat can choose between indoor and outdoor gyms. For water sports fans, Garden City features three swimming pools, including a covered and heated lap pool. There’s also a play area and game room for excitable kids and a library and amphitheater for quieter ones. Finally, Garden City also offers aromatherapy gardens for residents in need of a rejuvenating break.

Home Sweet Homes

Garden City is a six-tower low-density development that offers more than the usual condominium space. Each tower features 17 floors per tower with 18 units per floor. The low-density approach ensures that residents get the privacy they deserve and that amenities won’t get too crowded during weekends and holidays. 

Scheduled for completion in 2028, Garden City features optimized unit layouts on every floor. This maximizes the liveable space allotted to each homeowner so they can do more. Buyers can choose between studio, one, two, and three-bedroom units. However, Garden City’s popularity led to a wipeout of all preselling one and three-bedroom units. A studio unit measuring between 30 to 44 sqm begins at P3.78 million. Meanwhile, a two-bedroom outfit measuring between 70-93 sqm starts at P9.68 million
