Is There Any Development More Generous With Open Spaces?

70% Open space.  Aside from being surrounded by a River (Marikina River), which automatically makes the entire 12 hectare development 5 degrees cooler, Circulo Verde’s master plan is to leave 70% or about 8 hectares building free.  Ortigas and company promises to use only 30% of this property for their residential condominium development.  Kinda generous for a city development, don’t you think? 

Go around metro manila and look for other residential condominium developments that can promise 50% open space.  When you find this let me know.

The truth is, most condominiums are so close together that there’s really no room for us to breathe.  Ortigas and Company saw this problem and provided a solution to this problem by putting up Circulo Verde.  If the company really wanted profit and couldn’t care less about it’s future inhabitants, they would’ve planned a 30%, maybe lower, open space.  Just like what you will see around metro manila.

I don’t know about you, but if I were to live in a city, I’d prefer a place with generous open spaces.  So, in Metro Manila, Is there any development more generous with open spaces?  Kindly let me know if you find one and I’ll represent them.

Who’s Your Landlord?

My landlord is Ortigas and Company, Limited Partnership.  They are in the industry for almost 8 decades.  8 decades ago, the objective of the said partnership was to acquire the Hacienda de Mandaloyon.  Hacienda de Mandaloyon was part of the estate holdings of the Augustinian order.  The area of the hacienda is 4,033 hectares.  This hacienda is now known as the municipalities of Mandaluyong, San Juan, Pasig and Quezon City.  Needless to say, they are responsible for the development of the Ortigas business district.  If you want to know more about the old and new Ortigas and Company, (click here)

These are the people who started it all: Dr. Frank W. Dudley, Francisco Ortigas (Don Paco), Phil C. Whitaker, Vicente Madrigal, B.C.M. Johnston, Fulgencio Borromeo, Clyde A. Dewitt and Manuel L. Quezon.

Their mission and vision is simple: “To Be the Preferred Partner for Value-Driven Real Estate Ventures.”  They intend to accomplish this by consistently applying these core values: Customer Satisfaction, Creativity, Excellence, Loyalty, Integrity, Teamwork, and Employee Satisfaction.

What can you say?  Do you think Ortigas and Company will play a major role in Metro Manila’s realty developments within the next 1 to 2 decades?

Where’s Your Farm?

If I consider myself a professional farmer, it is reasonable for my readers to ask; “Where is your farm?”  My answer is: “it is in Quezon City, Libis and very near C-5 Road”.  Who’s my landlord? – Ortigas and Company, Limited Partnership and their current project is Circulo Verde

As I said in my previous article, I am changing the purpose of this blog.  For now, this online journal will contain topics regarding Ortigas and Company and their current and future projects.  In the following articles, I will blog about my 12 hectare farm and everything about its development.  At the same time, I will post common client questions and my answers.

I chose to farm this 12 hectare land because I believe it is an oasis.  An oasis because it is a fertile land with water in the middle of a desert.  In this context, let us refer to the city as a desert where you seldom see open spaces or greeneries.  It is my desire to share this Circulo Verde Oasis discovery to all.

Those in the Realty industry, I encourage you share where your farm is.  We’d love to here about them as well.  So, what can you say about my farm?
