The ongoing pandemic has underscored the value and many advantages of a master-planned township. Beyond convenience, well-designed integrated communities endowed safety and continuity of livelihood as well as other critical activities.
According to Prime Philippines, there’s a total of 81 townships across the country with Metro Manila taking up almost 30% of the overall count. Even in the face of economic uncertainties, there is sustained interest in developing and investing in integrated townships.
For urban dwellers to thrive, the community should be able to provide a truly distinctive brand of lifestyle that allows for smart living and keeps homeowners connected with everything essential.
Greenfield Development Corp. has long had the keen foresight to create future-proofed townships. Take for example Greenfield District, by incorporating digital technology, design innovation and connectivity into its townships, the property developer has created a modern community that will be able to thrive in the new normal and beyond.
An integrated urban community
Greenfield District sits at the heart of Mandaluyong Central Business District. Designed to give a truly distinctive brand of city lifestyle, the 15-hectare, mixed-use township is known as a “smart and connected” urban center with buildings technologically interconnected with a fiber-optic framework. Along with these modern high-rise buildings such as the Twin Oaks Place and Zitan Condominiums, the community is further redefining the Mandaluyong landscape with sweeping, green open spaces that comprise a generous portion of the development, and further enhanced by a pedestrian-oriented neighborhood.
Infrastructure developments are instrumental to community integration. Neighbouring cities are now interconnected through the Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge linking Makati and Mandaluyong which will be reopened in July while the Lawton-Sta. Monica Bridge linking Bonifacio Global City in Taguig and Ortigas business districts in Pasig City is set to open by June. With the two bridges operating, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said vehicular traffic on Edsa may be reduced by 20 percent. These bridges will reinforce Greenfield’s promise to offer a fully-connected lifestyle to their residential unit buyers, and commercial and office locators.
Greenfield District’s The Hub and The Portal are developmental lifestyle centers with retail spaces that include a wide variety of well-selected restaurants, cafes, and bars. These commercial stores are designed to cater not only to the executives and employees from the office towers but the entire neighborhood.
During these trying times, such townships offer a critical lifeline to the residents, who could readily purchase food, water, medicines, alcohol and other necessities despite the limits imposed by the lockdown. Hospitals, malls and lifestyle centers are conveniently situated within the vicinity of property, offering ease and comfort to homeowners.
A Smarter Home that thrives in the New Normal
Greenfield District carries the innovative vision of Greenfield Development Corporation by being a remarkable urban development which is built on two core pillars: a technologically advanced infrastructure and an eco-efficient master plan.
The township features a unique integration of fiber-to-the-home or FTTH technology within its masterplan—effectively incorporating technology into practical daily living. At its residential areas, homeowners can enjoy various smartphone-based functionalities such as app-controlled lighting, climate control, telecommunications, and many other possibilities as the age of the internet further evolves and peaks in this new normal.
The Twin Oaks Place in Greenfield District in Mandaluyong City is touted as the “first future-ready” home in the country. For starters, its Internet connection is ultra-fast through the FTTH framework which provides each unit with connectivity. Meanwhile, Zitan, another fiber-to- the-home condominium, is particularly designed to be transit-oriented as it is linked to the Shaw Boulevard station of the MRT along EDSA.
Gearing up for the Future
What makes Greenfield District appealing is the integrated community that furthers a digital lifestyle, not requiring residents to go far to get what they need or want. This type of convenience is not usually found in traditional residential subdivisions or even high-rise condominiums.
With all the perks, values and conveniences that it offers, Greenfield Development Corporation has long proven its capacity to build premium, sustainable and future-ready communities for decades now, providing many hardworking Filipinos with safe, comfortable and future ready homes.
