Starting out as a rural settlement centuries ago, Pasig City is now one of the most recognizable cities in Metro Manila. Centrally located, it is one of the more accessible cities of the region, making it an ideal place to live in for either those studying or working in almost any other part of the metro.
Its location has also let Pasig benefit greatly from the metro’s transport infrastructure, particularly Circumferential Road 5 (C-5), Ortigas Avenue, and other key thoroughfares. A great deal of the city’s residential communities are located in the districts situated between the C-4 and C-5 roads, which is an area that is also relatively within distance to Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.
Pasig City is also the home of eastern half of Ortigas Center, one of the most significant business districts in Metro Manila. In it are some of the country’s most notable companies, including the Manila Electric Company Main Offices and the Philippine Stock Exchange Centre., making it the ideal place to reside long-term while pursuing a corporate career in organizations based in the city, or around it.
While not as high-profile as Makati or Taguig on paper, Pasig is surely a viable place for investing in a home, given its location to prime cities like the aforementioned two while also being a prime city itself. In recent months, it has also gained renown for being a bastion of good governance, evident in its young mayor being named one of the recipients of International Anti-Corruption Champions Award by no less than the United States.
Live in a brand-new condo in Pasig City
Like the rest of Metro Manila, condominiums are among the more common residential developments in Pasig. With that said, there are a number of mid-rise and high-rise communities to choose residence in, and it is just a matter of where exactly in the city you want to live to be near key locations and what amenities are an absolute must for you to push through with residing in the city.
Among the newer choices that offers both an attractive location and comprehensive modern features is Gem Residences by the SM Development Corporation (SMDC). Located along the burgeoning C5-Ortigas corridor in Pasig City, the upcoming 41-storey residential tower offers world-class amenities that create a balance between work, rest, and recreation in a place that is conveniently situated yet still an escape from Metro Manila’s overall fast pace of living.
One notable feature of Gem Residences is its amenities area. Dubbed ‘The Creators Park’, it provides residents with space to comfortably work from home as well as easily transition to more relaxing activities once the day’s job is done. Along with lush greenery and water features, the space also includes an indoor gym, function rooms, a jogging path, a game area, and lap and kiddie pools.
Young professionals, new couples, and starting families can look forward to comfortably with masterfully designed condominium units that feature a den and balcony, located in one of the most viable locations in the Philippines both in terms of modern conveniences and good governance.
