A city would not be recognized as one unless it represents the country’s epicenter of trade and culture, wherein business, commercial, lifestyle and residential expediencies come together. For decades, the urban hubs developed by Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) across the Philippines are mirroring these components.
“We are committed to developing Vertis North as the central business district for Quezon City. Ayala Land’s best practices in the development of Makati and Bonifacio Global City will similarly be implemented in Vertis North. It has the unique advantage of being the gateway to the North for Metro Manila and is today a major transport and retail hub,” ALI president and CEO Tony T. Aquino said.
Vertis North, which is located in the center of Quezon City, is one of ALI’s latest projects to date. Although the company has had presence in Quezon City for a long time, its fervent commitment in solidifying the city’s primacy is clearly an unremitting process. The development of residential areas like Ayala Heights Townhomes, Ferndale Villas and Avida Towers New Manila, as well as leasing establishments like the UP-Ayala Technohub and Trinoma Mall, has defined their presence.
Eyeing completion in 10 years time, Vertis North is touted to become the newest city center in the area. When the masterplan was introduced last year, office, retail, hotel, and residential facets were unveiled—which all translate how the 30-hectare integrated urban redevelopment aims to become the major gateway to dynamic and progressive living in the north.
With residential developments being a vital component in the fruition of ALI’s vision for Vertis North, one of the company’s notable residential units — Avida Land — has expressed its involvement in fulfilling this aspect of the business district through Avida Towers Vita.
“This will be the pioneering residential development that will break ground in Vertis North,” said Raquel Cruz, Avida Land assistant vice president. “Avida Towers Vita will literally mark the beginning of the city center’s vision of further enlivening the urbanity present in Quezon City. Likewise, the project addresses the needs of young professionals and starting families who want to own their very first home that is centrally-located and highly accessible.”
Given that Vertis North will soon house commercial and lifestyle establishments, and is typically situated in the convergence point of commuter rail lines and three major road arteries particularly Epifanio delos Santos Ave. (EDSA), North Avenue and Quezon Ave., the ease of urban living is no longer a question. Hence, the studio units, one-bedroom units, and two-bedroom units coupled with amenities that Avida Towers Vita will offer are all set to provide ideal living spaces right at the heart of Quezon City’s newest city center.
“Vertis North in the soonest time will become a major hub converging enterprise, functionality and convenience in a setting that will bolster urban living in Quezon City. And we, at Avida, are more than glad to become the first ones to showcase the district’s urban promise,” said Cruz.
