The Most Accessible Condo Communities in Metro Manila


Why should you buy a condo in Metro Manila?

Traffic congestion is a problem that every city resident knows too well. This is mainly because of the continued influx of people to the metropolis and the lack of adequate infrastructure for public transportation.

People are spending long hours on the road trying to get from point A to point A instead of using their time for productive and worthwhile endeavors. In fact, the business community in the capital have asked the government to step up in addressing the horrendous traffic which is estimated to cost the economy PhP3.4 billion each day.

However, moving to the less congested countryside is not a solution for many students, professionals and families in Metro Manila. Top schools and most job opportunities are still confined in the capital. So city residents have very few options to leave home early, find a school or a job near their home, or live near public transportation networks. This is where condo-living becomes relevant.

DMCI Homes condo communities are strategically located near major highways, train stations, and bus terminals in Metro Manila. Moving around is made more convenient and affordable. A typical 2-hour commute can be cut into 20-30 minutes. For an instance, you can get from Quezon City to Makati Central Business District via the MRT within 20 minutes compared to a potential 2-3 hour drive.

Choose DMCI Homes communities situated near transport networks. Below is a quick guide:


DMCI Communities in Quezon City

Quezon City is the biggest city of the capital. It has about 3 million residents, many of whom work in other cities such as Ortigas Center in Pasig City and the Makati City CBD. Accessible transport infrastructure is a top government priority to ease the hassles of traveling from Quezon City to elsewhere.

The government is building new infrastructure to improve movement across the capital. One of the major projects is the MRT Line-7. This 23-kilometer railway line has 14 stations from San Jose Del Monte in Bulacan to the MRT-3 North Avenue station. The MRT-3 line connects cities that EDSA passes through, from Quezon City to Pasay City. As of March 31, 2020, 51.84% of MRT Line-7 has been completed.

The Metro Manila Subway is a 36-kilometer line consisting of 15 stations that will run through Quezon City, Pasig City, Makati City, Taguig City, and Pasay City. It will also link to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The Metro Manila Subway, expected to be fully operational by 2025, will connect other rail transit services, namely LRT-1, LRT-2, MRT-3, PNR Metro Commuter Line, and MRT-7. It will also link the planned Makati Intra-city Subway, MRT-4 and MRT-8.

Another major transport network in the works is the NLEX-SLEX Connector which is bound to be completed by December 2021. This 8-kilometer toll expressway will extend the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), cutting travel time from Clark, Pampanga to Calamba, Laguna by an hour. The connector aims to decongest traffic in Metro Manila.
