Sustainable. Healthy. Livable.

Nowadays, these are the words that often come to mind when homebuyers decide on a place where they can establish their roots. Many have begun to put a premium on locations where health is given priority and where wide open green spaces are always available.

Alongside a healthy environment, it also has to provide the comfort, security and convenience of community living. The place where they live in must be able to complement their active and vibrant lifestyles.

One of Asia’s healthiest cities

Among the cities in the metro, Marikina is considered as one of the most sustainable, most livable, and healthiest locations.

In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) cited Marikina City as one of Asia’s healthiest cities. Located in the eastern part of the metro, it was recognized for promoting a healthy environment for children. Marikina likewise received citations for making the city safe through an emergency preparedness plan. The WHO further commended the city for having the “best proposal for integrating diet and physical activity in urban planning.”

The picturesque old city of Marikina is also home to best sustainable practices. The local government has long imposed a ban on single-use plastic and strictly enforces laws that protect the environment. Thus, it was no surprise that Marikina is often touted as the “cleanest city in Metro Manila.”

In addition, residents of Marikina know how to share the road with bike lanes and walkways that dot its thoroughfares.

Mix of urban, rural

Marikina City truly offers an interesting combination of a mix of urban and rural lifestyles.

This is the main reason why Horizon Land Property Development Corp., a subsidiary of Federal Land Inc., has capitalized on the charm and livable features of Marikina City for its third project here called Siena Towers.

“Siena Towers offers a self-sustaining community away from the hustle and bustle of the greater metropolis, yet easily accessible through major roads and highways such as Edsa and Ortigas Avenue. Homebuyers will find plenty of modern conveniences a big city has to offer while retaining the laidback vibe of the suburbs,” said John Frederick Cabato, general manager of Horizon Land.

Family-friendly homes

Siena Towers is a high-rise residential condominium that offers safe and family-friendly homes designed to meet the needs of its residents. It is strategically located along Marquinton Drive, less than 50 meters from Sumulong Highway. The two-tower development offers comfortable living spaces in one- and two-bedroom unit variations, efficiently configured to provide enough room to pursue interests and activities.

The first tower still has condo units on offer while the second tower, set to launch this year, has 297 brand new residences.

Studio (23 sqm) and one-bedroom units (29 sqm to 39.50 sqm) are ideal for millennials and Gen Zs who are practical go-getters seeking their own space to grow in. Horizon Land also offers family-friendly homes with two-bedroom options (48 sqm to 72.50 sqm), big enough to start nesting.

Extraordinary lifestyle

The generous living spaces come with family life essentials such as a daycare, a kiddie play lot, kid’s pool and an open pavilion. Residents of Siena Tower will be able to live out their health goals with the well-appointed amenities and facilities such as the fitness gym and swimming pools, game room and karaoke room. Another plus is that they can soak in the relaxing sights and sounds of the landscaped garden.

Retail spaces are meanwhile within the vicinity, offering residents easy access to daily essentials such as laundry services and convenience stores, among others.

“Horizon Land commits itself to developing quality residential property where people can enjoy an extraordinary lifestyle. Our amenities are designed to allow residents to do what they love and love what they do. In Siena Towers, life is made easier because everything you need is here,” Cabato added.

Siena Towers also provides a convenient central address near the emerging IT-BPM sector in Marikina, ideal for the jobseekers who are searching for nearby yet convenient address. Its proximity to major throughways such as C-5 and Katipunan Avenue also makes it accessible to the business hubs in Quezon City, Ortigas Center, Makati City, and Bonifacio Global City.
