Am a city girl at heart. I love the bustle, vibe, energy and opportunities of living in a cosmopolitan place. Perhaps when I get much older, I could think of retiring near the mountains or the sea. However, circumstances dictate that Manila is our home right now because this is where work is and where the kids study.
In the ideal world, your workplace, residence and recreation facilities will co-exist in one area so that you won’t have to cope with the stresses of urban living such as traffic and long commutes. It seems this is no longer just a dream with leading developer Megaworld Corp.’s thrust in building masterplanned township communities. It’s a complete lifestyle concept where residents can Live, Work, Play, Learn and Shop in one dynamic, delightful environment!
A fine example is McKinley Hill, Megaworld’s largest township development with a landbank of 50 hectares in the prime spot that’s Fort Bonifacio. Continuously escalating land values and rental rates give investors the highest return for their buck.
Located in this area are: 4 foreign embassies (South Korea, UK, United Arab Emirates and Qatar), 3 international schools, 15 office buildings (including BPOs), and 90 restaurants/ commercial stores. When fully developed, McKinley Hill will be home to 34 residential condominiums, 482 residential lots and 4,716 apartments…aside from all those mentioned above.
Through the #iloveMKH media tour recently, bloggers like us were given a glimpse of the Mediterranean design and taste of European living that McKinley Hill offers.
“It’s a holistic lifestyle with all the elements of Live, Work, Play, Learn and Shop present right within the community itself,” pointed out Ms. Nicole Adarme, Head of Marketing Communications for Megaworld at the Fort. ” We are advocating a relaxed and convenient way of life, and there’s no better way to do this than through an immersive experience so that bloggers can inspire others and share what it’s like to live here.”
For the LIVE component of the tour, we stopped by The Venice Luxury Residences which consists of seven towers at 22 to 31 storeys each.Only two towers have been built so far but it will dazzle with its Venetian architecture when completed, as there will be gondolas and a Grand Canal with a mall …. just like in Venice!
