7 best neighborhood options to pricey business districts

Global real estate website Lamudi has put together a list of soon-to-be-popular areas and neighborhoods in Metro Manila. Buyers looking for value-for-money real estate but still desire a city address can choose from  these best alternatives to pricey business districts.

1. Barangay San Antonio, Makati
Barangay San Antonio is now touted as an extension of the Makati central business district (CBD) as it is just a couple of minutes away from the CBD.  Condos here are still much affordable compared to those in either Salcedo or Legaspi Village.
This prime location is also brimming with nightlife and a vibrant foodie scene, from local carinderias and interesting hole-in-the-wall joints to concept restaurants.
Some of the most notable upcoming projects in the area include Megaworld Corp.’s San Antonio Residence, Avida Land’s One Antonio, and Shang Properties’ The Rise Makati. Completed condos in the area include Belton Place, The Linear, and Avida Towers Makati West.

2. Barangay Ususan, Taguig
Barangay Ususan’s main selling point is its strategic location,  just beside C5 Road.  This Taguig neighborhood is just a stone’s throw away from both McKinley Hill and Bonifacio Global City. The ongoing development of C5 extension, including a bridge that will cross the South Luzon Expressway, will mean travel to the airport, Parañaque, Las Piñas, and the Manila–Cavite Expressway will soon become quick and easy.
Acacia Estates of DMCI Homes is one of the most well-known developments in the area. This 150-hectare property offers both preselling and ready-for-occupancy condominium units, as well as residential lots in the development’s Mahogany Place projects.
This barangay is also home to SMDC’s Grace Residences—a four-tower condo development—while close by is the new Vista Mall Taguig.
 Other condo developments located near or within Barangay Ususan are Cypress Towers and C5 Mansions.

3. Barangay Western Bicutan, Taguig
Located at the southern section of Taguig is Western Bicutan—known for being home of the FTI Complex where Arca South, one of Ayala Land’s latest large-scale mixed-use projects, will soon rise. This new mixed-use project boasts accessibility, as it sits close to both C5 Road and the South Luzon Expressway and  the soon-to-be-completed C6 Road. 
Soon to rise in Arca South are projects by Ayala Land subsidiaries: Arbor Lanes by Ayala Land Premier, The Veranda by Alveo Land, and One Union Place by Avida Land.
Other Western Bicutan properties include newly built townhouses in AFPOVAI Village, some of which can be had for P9 million.

4. Barangay Palanan, Makati
Situated where the cities of Makati, Manila, and Pasay meet, Barangay Palanan is an area that is near to virtually all the conveniences these three cities offer. Its proximity to the Makati CBD is what makes Palanan an exciting alternative for property investment. This part of Makati will also benefit once that the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 is completed and fully operational.

According to Lamudi’s listings data, one of the most searched properties in Palanan is Melbourne Residences. This nine-story condo development offers affordable condo apartments. Aside from this, the barangay also offers plenty of newly built townhouse properties.

5. Santa Ana, Manila

The heritage district of Santa Ana is strategically located where the cities of Manila, Makati, Mandaluyong and San Juan meet. Because of its proximity to the Makati CBD, Santa Ana is a popular choice among professionals who work in Ayala avenue.  Ortigas Center is also within a short driving distance via Kalentong street and Shaw boulevard.

Santa Ana is also close to President Quirino avenue, which is one of the exits of the soon-to-be-completed MMSS-3. Once fully operational, the MMSS-3 will make commute from Santa Ana to as far north as Balintawak fast and easy.

Two of the most popular condo developments in Santa Ana are the Manila Rivercity Residences and Rivergreen Residences of CDC Holdings. These two projects, located by the banks of Pasig River, reportedly enjoyed fast take-ups as these are seen as cheaper alternative to Makati condos. 
A branch of White Knight Hotel will soon open in Santa Ana this year. The building will offer both hotel units and dormitory type rooms for female renters.

6. Tandang Sora, Quezon City

A  number of exciting properties around Tandang Sora are expected to rise in the years to come.

Vertis North, Quezon City’s up-and-coming business and lifestyle district is set to reinvent Quezon City soon. Tandang Sora is located close to this upcoming mini city. 

Another real estate project close to Tandang Sora is the UP–Ayala Land TechnoHub, which is a 20-hectare business district that is home to BPO and IT companies.

MRT-7 commuter railway, which will run from EDSA–North avenue to San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, will immensely benefit Tandang Sora and other parts of Quezon City.


One of the most high-profile residential developments in Tandang Sora is DMCI Homes’ Zinnia Towers—a two-tower resort-inspired condo project that offers units for as low as P2.35 million. In addition, the area is also teeming with plenty ofnewly built townhouse properties, some of which can be had for as low as P3.9 million.

7. Chino Roces avenue, Makati
Chino Roces Avenue (formerly Pasong Tamo) is a busy road that runs from J.P. Rizal Street in Makati’s Barangay Carmona to Fort Bonifacio’s Gate 3 in Taguig. Situated very close to the Makati CBD, this thoroughfare—particularly the stretch between EDSA and Gil Puyat avenue, has been getting a lot of attention in the market recently, but despite being just a few minutes away from the Makati CBD, real estate prices here are still affordable.

Food scenes and nightlife are also booming in this part of Makati. The neighborhood that is once dominated by car showrooms and warehouses now have enticing foodie spots.

San Lorenzo Place, an Empire East project at the corner of EDSA and Chino Roces, is one of the most prominent developments in the area. Ready-for-occupancy units are now available for those who wish to have a Makati address but don’t want to shell out a hefty amount. 
Other condo developments include Federal Land’s Oriental Garden and Paseo de Roces and DMCI Homes’ Fortis Garden Residences.
