The Advantages of Living in a Condo in Ortigas East
Savvy investors know that people who purchase a condo achieve two goals – first, they buy a property that can become their new home; and second, they gain an investment that appreciates steadily over time and has great resale value. Condo prices grow faster in value over other kinds of traditional investments, especially in times of economic uncertainty.
Ortigas East, which is being developed by Ortigas Land as the first eco-estate in Metro Manila, offers several advantages because of its location. Let’s discuss them here.
1. It’s located right on C5 and Ortigas Avenue
Ortigas East’s amazing location off C5 and Ortigas Avenue means that it’s a short distance from the dynamic Ortigas Central Business District, which is a booming center for business, retail, education, and residential condo development.
Its closeness to C5 also makes it extremely convenient to access transport routes that lead both north, toward Quezon City, and south, toward Bonifacio Global City.
2. The Ortigas-BGC bridge is nearing completion
The Philippines Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) recently announced that the Ortigas-BGC bridge – officially known as the Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge – is getting closer toward completion.
As part of the Bonifacio Global City-Ortigas Center link road project under the administration’s Build Build Build program, travel time between Ortigas and Bonifacio Global City may go down to as little as 12 minutes! The bridge will help decongest C5 – and EDSA – traffic. Everybody wins – including you.
- C5 is becoming its own main thoroughfare
Eulogio Rodriguez Jr. Avenue, or Circumferential Road 5 (C5), has been witnessing a number of revitalization projects along its wide stretch – many of these transforming former idle or industrial land into thoughtfully designed, highly livable spaces for young professionals, couples, and growing families.
The next wave of upscale condo development is in full swing, with a heavy focus on C5. This is enhancing the value of any preselling condo on C5 road – including properties being developed in Ortigas East by Ortigas Land.
- It’s near resort-like destinations on the east side of the city
Because Ortigas East is easy to reach from three different areas, it’s equally easy to travel to destinations that lead out of Metro Manila in just an hour or two.
From Ortigas area, it’s easy to schedule so many nearby adventures. Most people think of going north or south; but Ortigas East’s location is perfect for going, well, east!
Here are some examples:
- a visit to Marikina’s river banks, famed shoe Museum, and shopping outlets;
- the hills of Antipolo, with Pinto Art Gallery and restaurants with great views of the city in the distance;
- drive, or bike, toward the scenic highlands of Tanay – and even go swimming;
- organize exciting adventures to places such as Masungi Geoserve in Baras;
- go hiking in the mountains of Rodriguez;
- or explore the ancient petroglyphs in Angono.
Choose A Condo in a Great Location
When considering a condo for its amenities and exceptional location, look for a preselling condo in Ortigas East. It’s an investment that can be enjoyed for years, by members of your family, yourself, and the next generation.
