Contrary to many of the fear-mongering news, the ongoing crisis has opened the doors to more opportunities in real estate.

1. Convenient Transport System
Ortigas Center was one of the most accessible places in Metro Manila. Due to the pandemic, however, transportation has become a great challenge most especially for commuters. The government ordered to close the MRT and LRT stations, to not allow other forms of public transport to run, and to allow private vehicles to travel only if necessary.
With the latest update, the quarantine has loosened up a bit in the National Capital Region (NCR) allowing again with restricted numbers of passengers for public transport like trains, taxis, modern jeepneys, and buses to operate. Fair enough, the situation is almost the same for most of the world and these kinds of improvements are what most people are in dire need right now.
Also, the construction of NCR’s massive construction projects like the ₱1.6-billion BGC-Ortigas Center link and the ₱350-billion Metro Manila Subway will significantly improve the transport system soon.
2. Modern and Convenient Residential Spaces
Whether you’re planning on moving in the place for a long or a brief stay, Ortigas Land offers convenient residential spaces that perfectly suits your most likely preferred modern lifestyle. The continuous rise in demands in accommodations resulted in the development of more condominiums. The Galleon at Ortigas Center, Empress at Capitol Commons, and Maven at Pasig City are just a few of the most modern and convenient units for those looking for a place of long-term residency.
Aside from condominiums available for sale and rent, business travelers can check-in to beautifully-furnished hotels, too. The Exchange Regency Residence and CDC Millennium Hotel offer short to mid-term accommodation depending on your preferences. It has all the comfort and privacy a hotel can offer for the best staying experience possible.
All these condominiums and hotels offer flexible terms and booking policies due to the ongoing health crisis. To cope with the rapid changes, Ortigas Land offers the country’s first-of-its-kind wellness real estate in Capitol Commons having establishments to gain the easiest access to essential goods like food and medical supplies.
3. Wide Range Of Commercial Amenities
Aside from the convenient and modern residential space, another reason to move into Ortigas Land’s real estate property is the vast number of available commercial establishments. From dining selections, large shopping malls with cinemas, workout places, and beauty parlors, Ortigas Land has all the commercial amenities to live the best possible quality of modern life.
As of now, gyms and cinemas are off-limits. For the whole country, many entertainment and wellness establishments are not yet allowed to accept customers. However, with strict implementation of disinfection and social distancing, some amenities like beauty parlors and restaurants are starting to get back to business.
With the “new normal” way of living, one of the best reasons to still consider moving to Ortigas is that these commercial amenities mostly are within walking distance. With the awareness of sudden changes in implementing rules, you can even have a jog or walk in the sidewalks while wearing a face mask as another healthy option.
Also, the Ortigas Land is constructing more health-related establishments suitable for these trying times.
4. High-Quality Health Care
Considering to move to a place with a high-quality healthcare system could be one of your best choices. Today, with the worldwide health crisis, it is the best time to think about your health care seriously.
With convenient residential spaces and easy-to-access commercial establishments, Ortigas is a place with a high-quality health care system. For medical emergencies or consultations, you can easily go to The Medical City, a tertiary care hospital. The world-class health care complex has a medical staff of over a thousand doctors who are experts in their fields of specialization.
This 1.5-hectare hospital has a three-level basement parking enough to accommodate thousands of vehicles. Besides the quality of medical personnel, the place is also equipped with high-security technology, advanced building management system, and biosafety features to ensure patients, especially those in sensitive conditions, are properly taken care of.
5. Peace And Order Despite The Hustle-And-Bustle
Without a doubt, Ortigas is one of the busiest places in the country. As people are slowly going back to the business-as-usual type of activities, and with additional measures to prevent further virus outbreak, the place still manages to maintain peace and order.
With all the mentioned reasons why you should move to Ortigas, you might still not dare to come unless you can rest assured that you and your family are free from the harm of crime and violence. Despite the hustle-and-bustle lifestyle, the ambiance of the place is always relaxed and laid-back.
Again, while knowing the ongoing rules, you can securely take delight in leisurely strolling around the district.
Ortigas Land Strategic Placement Of Properties
