IMAGINE living in the bustling historic Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, that is both a cultural melting pot and a modern metropolis making it a popular choice for singles and families to live in. There are many other reasons for this, as living in the city offers a wide range of advantages.
Living in Manila and within the university belt is a smart decision for students, as it allows them to focus on their studies without having to spend hours traveling to and from school.
For employees or professionals, coming home to a convenient location that also provides a sense of comfort and exclusivity after a long day at work is priceless.
For homemakers, seniors, frequent travelers, and single people, Manila presents a lot of things to see and do such as going to churches, parks, museums, shopping malls, and an abundance of restaurants to choose from.
Commuting is also relatively easy in Manila as there are three train routes – LRT-1, LRT-2, and MRT-3 – which reach nearby cities such as Quezon City and Pasay.
Rising with the thriving location of Manila are the quality yet affordable condominium projects of New San Jose Builders, Inc. (NSJBI).
