One of the largest cities in Metro Manila, Pasig City is the home to business centers, lifestyle hubs, reputable schools, and premier residential communities. Divided into 30 barangas in 2 districts, the city of Pasig is populated by more than 700 thousand as of a 2015 census. Its busy streets are packed - not only by residents, but also a workforce of hundreds - on a daily basis. Despite the crowdedness, however, there is an unparalleled enjoyment that comes with experiencing the lifestyle in Pasig, one that its longtime residents can attest to and one which continues to attract more people to consider finding a home in Pasig. What really convinces them, however, is the goldmine of opportunities that the city offers.
Residents of Pasig can enjoy unparalleled urban living, but thanks to several programs that the city actively implements, exceeds expectations. For one, the city actively promotes green lifestyle among its residents. In fact, Pasig was recognized as one of the most liveable cities in the world in 2013. One reason being the green practices initiated by its local government. All around the city are parks maintained by its residents as well as trees lined up in the busiest of roads. Secondly, residents of Pasig are encouraged to live a healthy lifestyle. One way is by limiting the use of cars and other motorized vehicles and walk instead, especially if they live nearby their work. On weekends, cars are not permitted to enter select roads - areas where residents can enjoy a morning jog or a leisurely stroll in the afternoons. Without a doubt, residents of Pasig will not only be pleasantly surprised by how relaxed and calm life can be in such a busy city but also embrace it completely.
But just as in other developed cities in the Metro Manila, such as Makati and Taguig, many opportunities for career growth can be found in Pasig City. Most of the commercial developments of the city can be found in the Ortigas Center, Ortigas Avenue, and E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue.
The Ortigas Center, one of the largest business districts in the Metro, shares boundaries with the cities of Pasig, Mandaluyong, Taguig, and Quezon. Here, companies in a wide range of fields - such as BPO, IT, advertising, and finance - can be found. There’s thousands of career options for both young professionals looking to jumpstart their career and for managers and directors looking for bigger opportunities.
There isn’t a shortage of lifestyle options either. Along Ortigas Avenue is Metrowalk, an al fresco dining destination in Pasig known for its plethora of choices at a reasonable price. Along C5 Road corner E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue is Tiendesitas, an 18.5 development project made up of several pavilions - or “villages” as they are called - where hundreds of locally produced goods and handicrafts can be found. It also includes a food village, calesa rides, and live entertainment every night. Meanwhile, Capital Commons in Oranbo, Pasig is a mixed-use development spanning 10-hectares and the address of the upscale retail anchor Estancia at Capitol Commons. Here, several international brands and global restaurants can be found.
While there are houses for sale in some upscale subdivisions around the city, there is an evident abundance of condominiums in Pasig providing housing options at the heart of the city’s activities. Many individuals and families opt to buy a condo in Pasig because it would cut down the commute going to and fro the busy city and they would stay closer to the exciting, fast-paced life in the city. There are several upscale developments that can be found in various districts.
There is a significant demand for condominiums for sale in Ortigas Center because of its nearness to the business district. The Sapphire Bloc Residences is a condominium development resting along the corners of Onyx, Sapphire, and Garnet Streets. The residential development is four-tower complex featuring a retail mall and a number of specialty restaurants. Conveniently located a few minutes’ walk away from the towering commercial buildings that surround it, the development was built with the intention of promoting a walkable lifestyle for its residents, keeping in mind the importance of convenience and comfortability of travel. Aside from its 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units, families would be excited about its 3-bedroom penthouse unit of approximately 126.80 to 158.70 sqm.
The Pearl Place, located along Pearl Drive, is a two-tower residential condominium that encourages its future residents to unleash their creativity - that is, if they desire to do so. Offering both bare and standard finished units, the Robinsons Land condominium is one of the most sought-after addresses by those who want to settle down in Pasig. Units are available in studio, one, and two-bedroom types to fit the needs of the client.
Ugong, Pasig is located in the south of the city. The district where Tiendesitas and Robinsons Galleria are located, is also the address of The Grove by Rockwell. The condominium, branded as a resort-like residential development, features one-of-a-kind amenities that set it apart from others in the area. Its Amenity Deck features several swimming pools and a jogging path for its residents to enjoy. The Great Lawn is a vast garden space for families and friends to hold picnics, play outdoor games, or simply take in the cool city breeze. Add to that its sports courts, dancing room, and fully-equipped gym, those who aspire to live in a condominium with complete amenities - and more - can undoubtedly expect the best from The Grove by Rockwell.
Despite being known primarily as a foodie’s must-visit destination for different cuisines and specialties, there are several residential developments in Kapitolyo. The neighborhood is filled with cafes and bars, food parks, and homes-turned-restaurants. Also found in the area are several coworking spaces, specialty stores, and the famous Ace Water Spa. The East Raya Gardens in Mercedes Avenue, Pasig is composed of eight 5-storey buildings, inspired by Balinese architecture. It is highlighted by its lush gardens, pools and ponds, and a beautiful landscape at its receiving area that’s reminiscent of resorts in Indonesia. The mid-rise condominiums come in two and three-bedroom unit types at an affordable price despite its location.
