MANILA, Philippines — Philippines Urban Living Solutions (PULS) Inc., the builder of MyTown dormitories, which is 61.2-percent owned by SM Investments Corp., recently broke ground on its largest building to date, a seven story-dormitory with 1,000 beds.

MyTown Los Angeles is set to rise along Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City, going to C-5.

It is located just a few minutes walk from Uptown. Moreover, the building is positioned alongside the BGC - Ortigas Link Bridge set to be completed by end of 2019.

This project brings location, an ecosystem for people to live, work and play, and modern facilities and amenities together while giving our tenants the familiar overall MyTown experience. This is one of our most exciting projects yet,” Ikink said.
