Robinsons Pearl Place Follows Proximity Principle
MANILA, Philippines – Today’s urbanite usually takes more than 30 minutes to go from home to office. There are many factors that determine travel time: distance to work, long lines at the transportation terminal, and traffic on the road.
Now wouldn’t it be ideal to be at the office in 15 minutes? Or, be home with the family? That means more quality time with loved ones, or friends, or quality ‘me’ time.
In the past, city planners would design settlements in clusters, with residential areas allocated around the centers of government and commerce, within the proximity of hospitals, schools and churches. Today, following the same principle of proximity, Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) has found a way to make this lifestyle option a reality in the Ortigas Business District.
The Pearl Place, which is under the Robinsons Communities brand, is presented as the ideal solution for metro denizens who like their commutes short and their downtime lengthy. Located along Pearl Drive, adjacent to the University of Asia and the Pacific, this project is within walking distance to EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, SM Megamall and the Podium, as well as banks, churches and several hotels.
More importantly, it is close to major thoroughfares like Shaw Boulevard and EDSA, which also means one is near the transport terminals of buses, jeepneys and cabs, as well as one of the stations of the MRT Line-1.
“By living at The Pearl Place, you get to have everything brought closer to home,” said Rouen Raz, VP for sales and marketing of Robinsons Communities. Finding your share of urban space in an area that thrives on the hustle and bustle of business may sound daunting in an area such as Ortigas, but this new address will offer this option at affordable prices and flexible payment schemes.
The residential development features two, 40-story towers. It has over 1,300 units, with allocations for commercial establishments along its 800-sqm ground floor area. This area, when completed, will have restaurants, fast food chains, convenience stores, laundry shops and other retail outlets. There will also be a multilevel podium, a Summit Lounge, swimming pools, function rooms and a gym. Units available are 24 sqm studios, 27 sqm one-bedroom units, and 48 sqm two-bedroom condo units with monthly amortization priced for as low as P9,500.
