The ongoing pandemic has underscored the value and many benefits of a master-planned township. In addition to convenience, well-designed integrated communities provided security and continuity in livelihoods as well as other critical activities.
According to Prime Philippines, there are a total of 81 townships across the country, with Metro Manila making up almost 30% of the total number. Even in the face of economic uncertainty, there is a sustained interest in developing and investing in integrated townships.
For urban dwellers to thrive, society should be able to deliver a truly distinctive lifestyle that allows for smart living and keeps homeowners connected to everything important.
Greenfield Development Corp. has long had a great foresight to create future-proof townships. Take the Greenfield District, for example, by integrating digital technology, design innovation and connectivity into its townships, the property developer has created a modern community that will thrive in the new normal and beyond.
An integrated urban community
The Greenfield District is located in the heart of Mandaluyong Central Business District. The 15-hectare mixed-use metropolis is designed to give a real distinctive touch of urban lifestyle and is known as a “smart and connected” city center with buildings that are technologically connected with a fiber optic frame. Together with these modern high-rise buildings such as Twin Oaks Place and Zitan Condominiums, the community further redefines the Mandaluyong landscape with sweeping, green open spaces that form a generous part of the development and further enhanced by a pedestrian-oriented neighborhood.
Infrastructure development contributes to societal integration. Neighboring towns are now connected to each other via the Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge, which connects Makati and Mandaluyong, which opened in July, while Lawton-Sta. Monica Bridge, which connects Bonifacio Global City in Taguig and Ortiga’s business districts in Pasig City, which opened in June. With the two bridges in operation, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said car traffic on Edsa could be reduced by 20 percent. These bridges will reinforce Greenfield’s promise to offer a fully connected lifestyle to their home buyers and commercial and office space.
Greenfield District’s The Hub and The Portal are developmental lifestyle centers with shops that include a wide range of well – chosen restaurants, cafés and bars. These commercial stores are designed to appeal not only to managers and employees from the office towers, but the entire neighborhood.
In these difficult times, such townships offer a critical lifeline to the residents who could easily buy food, water, medicine, alcohol and other necessities despite the limits imposed on lockdown. Hospitals, shopping malls and lifestyle centers are conveniently located near the property and offer ease and comfort to homeowners.
A smarter home that thrives in the new normal
The Greenfield District carries the innovative vision of the Greenfield Development Corporation by being a remarkable urban development built on two core pillars: a technologically advanced infrastructure and an environmentally efficient master plan.
Township has a unique integration of fiber-to-home or FTTH technology into its master plan — effectively integrating technology into everyday practice. In residential areas, homeowners can enjoy various smartphone-based features such as app-controlled lighting, climate control, telecommunications and many other options as the age of the internet further evolves and peaks in this new normal.
Twin Oaks Place in the Greenfield District of Mandaluyong City is hailed as the “first future-ready” home in the country. To begin with, its Internet connection is ultra-fast through the FTTH framework, which provides each device with a connection. Meanwhile, Zitan, another fiber-to-home condominium, is specifically designed to be transit-oriented, as it is connected to the Shaw Boulevard station on the MRT along EDSA.
Like up to the future
What makes the Greenfield district appealing is the integrated community that promotes a digital lifestyle and does not require residents to go to great lengths to get what they need or want. This kind of convenience is not usually found in traditional housing estates or even high-rise buildings.
With all the benefits, values, and conveniences it offers, Greenfield Development Corporation has long proven its ability to build premium, sustainable, and future-proof communities for decades now, providing many hard-working Filipinos with safe, comfortable, and future-proof homes.
