Greenfield District rises as the new city center

(The Philippine Star) - February 7, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - As the first smart and connected district in the country that is “ahead of its time,” the 12.8-hectare Greenfield District along EDSA and Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong City offers a balance between urban comfort, green living, and state-of-the-art-buildings. Slowly becoming a lifestyle hub for city dwellers, this master-planned community developed by Greenfield Development Corporation also offers a multitude of lifestyle choices for everyone.

With a generous portion of the vibrant hub allocated to pocket parks, tree-lined roads and lush open spaces, it is possible to take leisurely strolls around the complex. Battling out traffic and congestion outside its perimeter is easy as a sense of calm and well being takes over inside. Families can take the children out on a stroll, and fly a kite on weekends. Pets are always welcome in the Greenfield District where they can romp and run as much as they want.

Dining al fresco is a regular sight along the many restaurants that line Greenfield District’s The Hub and The Portal. The newest dining strip offers various cuisines, a far cry from the usual run-of-the-mill fast food joints. The wide array of choices is sure to whet the appetite of any foodie.

After its renovation and facelift, the Pavilion is now home to various retail outlets and food kiosks. Looking for bargain finds in the metro is easy in this three-storey retail complex. Its recent renovation and facelift melds well with the district’s chic, urban vibe.

Weekend warriors on the lookout for a good run or a place to exercise can try the expanse at Greenfield District. Jogging paths surround the area and the firm tufts of grass serves as a better alternative to the gym. At night, the roads are well-lit and constantly patrolled by guards securing Greenfield District.

And there comes the emergence of sustainable weekend markets around the metro that has inspired Greenfield District’s very own. Local organic produce from the nearby provinces, sweets, delicatessen, and nifty home décors abound at the Greenfield Weekend Market. Christofer Laurent, tenant of a 150-sqm. space and owner of a design firm, says the market is a big hit with him. “I absolutely love it!” he exclaims. “People are friendly and you get quality products every single time.”

The mixed-use complex has also been used for a number of events – from dog festivals, to furniture exhibits, auto shows and concerts. Big concerts such as the Cinemajam 2014, San Miguel Oktoberfest, Ateneo Colorama and Bob Marley Day Manila were all held at the Central Park of Greenfield District. A great events place in a central location, a number of events set to make Greenfield District as their stage are already blocked off for next year.

“As more people are becoming lifestyle-savvy, we work harder to provide the perfect hub for every activity, for anyone, all in a lush green oasis at the heart of the metro,” says lawyerDuane AX Santos, executive vice president and general manager of Greenfield Development Corporation.

More than the complex around it, Greenfield District will also feature BPO offices and residential towers dubbed the “home of the future.” Twin Oaks Place, the premier residential offering of Greenfield, will be fitted with fiber optic technology that allows for a “smart,’ automated home as well as unparalleled digital interconnectivity. Zitan, on the other hand, easily connects to malls and lifestyle centers within the District through its location. Also fitted with Fiber to the Floor (FTTF) mechanics, it connects to the rest of the world in unparalleled speed. And with its direct access to the MRT, with buses and all other public transportation literally at its doorstep, it connects residents to the rest of the city.

This new city center focused on innovation and quality creates a new pocket for urban dwellers. With unmatched facilities, security, and planning and design, it serves as a perfect hub where everything is within reach.
