MANILA, Philippines — Quezon City, Metro Manila’s largest city, is also big on development, earning recognition as the richest local government unit across the country, one of the cleanest and greenest places of residence, as well as carving a reputation for a safe and business-friendly environment.
Among its emerging districts is Fairview, located on the northern section of the city, which is rapidly fulfilling its tag as Quezon City’s “next growth area.”
Fairview is witnessing this revitalization through growth in business and trade enterprises. Barren tracts of land have suddenly been occupied by major shopping malls and emerging business districts. Schools, hospitals, and other institutions have also flocked to explore opportunities. Even the completion of a railway system will further link the area to progress.
Seeing this development, DMCI Homes, the country’s leading resort-inspired community developer, has come up with a maiden project in the area called “The Redwoods.”
Now considered as an important landmark in the area, The Redwoods has settled on a strategic vantage, at the intersection of Quirino Highway and Regalado Avenue, right across two giant malls – SM Fairview and Robinsons Novaliches. Sprawled on a two-hectare prime property, this medium-rise community is composed of five Neo-Asian inspired buildings offering low density living with only 521 units.
With the first building, Chi, that welcomed its residents last March, they are now enjoying the variety of living advantages available there. Most evident is the location, which puts them in a dynamic area that offers access to leisure and recreation options, business destinations, and other daily urban living requirements.
Aside from the two major malls, the new community is also located near the Sta. Lucia Neopolitan Business Hub, Far Eastern University-Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation (FEU-NRMF) Medical Center, San Lorenzo General Hospital, Sacred Heart Novaliches, Mater Carmeli School, School of St. Anthony, as well as churches that are all less than five kilometers away.
Major universities like the University of the Philippines Diliman and Ateneo de Manila University and commercial centers like TriNoma and SM North EDSA are accessible, all at no more than 30 minutes’ drive away.
The location is also convenient for motorists with C-5 Road Extension connecting through Quirino Highway and North Luzon Expressway. Also, the commuters will appreciate easy access to a transport terminal right outside the development. Furthermore, the completion of MRT-7 by year 2013, will likewise boost accessibility to the area.
These urban conveniences are complemented by the resort theme of the development, using allusions towards Neo-Asian influences. Residents can discover modern renderings of traditional Asian characteristic, reflected at the entrance gate, clubhouse, and building façades.
Community amenities are deemed first-rate – a wish list of features any resident would desire to have in their community. These include a lap pool, kiddie pool, basketball court, playground, fitness gym, game room, tea house gazebos, and park-like gardens/ landscaping and entertainment room.
The entire clubhouse is WiFi-ready to keep up with the corporate/social networking needs of residents.
DMCI Homes is the country’s premier Triple A developer who builds serviced, theme communities within reach of urban families who once had limited residential options.
