When buying a property, people nowadays want more than a roof over their heads. Aside from having a beautiful place to call home, Filipinos are becoming more practical and prefer a place that will not only provide a pleasing place to live in, but a property that suits a fast-paced lifestyle and can potentially be rewarding investment.
Beyond pleasing aesthetics, Monarch Parksuites of luxury property developer Anchor Land Holdings, Inc. is a person’s best bet for a great investment. Sitting in the middle of the country’s newest tourism capital, the development promises good returns and puts the residents at the nucleus of a booming financial district.
Situated right between the established Bay City and the up-and-coming Entertainment City, Monarch Parksuites allows its residents to be within mere walking distance to the towering establishments of Pagcor Entertainment City and the SM Mall of Asia Complex.
Most palaces in Europe are usually located at the center of its domain, where the nobility have easy access to everything they desire. Following this concept, Monarch Parksuites allows its residents to be within mere walking distance to the towering establishments of PAGCOR Entertainment City and the SM Mall of Asia Complex.
The PAGCOR Entertainment City is expected to play a vital role in redefining the reputation of Metro Manila in the global arena, making the Philippines a premiere tourism destination this part of the world.
Four locators were awarded the franchise to operate gaming and resort facilities in the 110-hectare complex. The first one to open to the public is Solaire Resort and Casino which officially began operations on the 16th of March this year. It is a $1.2 billion project spanning 9 hectares of land. Other locators which will soon rise are: Resorts World Bayshore, a $1.1 billion project complete with a theme park and casino on 31 hectares of land; Manila Bay Resorts, a $2 billion project on 45 hectares of land that will have an impressive in-door man-made beach enclosed in a glass dome; and Belle Grand Manila Bay, a $1 billion project on 6.2 hectares.
Indeed, the Entertainment City is the country's most ambitious tourism project and will soon be the Philippines’ strongest financial district. Around 250,000 people will be working within the area in the next five years, and about 10% of that number will be foreign nationals.
The SM Mall of Asia Complex, on the other hand, is a 407,000 square-meter mall that raised the standards of shopping, leisure, and entertainment in the Philippines.
Inside, one can find convention halls such as the SMX Convention Center and Mall of Asia Arena. Several office buildings can also be found such as the One and Two E-Com Offices, the A Place Corporate Office,  K Line Corporate Office, and the SM Group Corporate Offices. The Shrine of Jesus Church stands on one end of the complex. Transportation centers such as the Ferry Terminal and the transportation hub make it easy for people to get to the area. Strips of outdoor restaurants such as Blue Wave and San Miguel by the Bay offer numerous dining options for visitors.
And if being at the center of activity and the city’s bright lights is not your cup of tea, you can opt to stay within the chill and calm surroundings of Aseana City where the development is located. Though situated very near the hustle and bustle, it maintains a fully integrated green city with many open lawns, jogging tracks, and spectacular views of Manila Bay and its magnificent sunset. Carefully zoned to provide services and products to fit all lifestyles, it houses reputable institutions like the Department of Foreign Affairs, the soon-to-rise Embassy of Qatar and the ultra modern Marina & Yacht Club.
Monarch Parksuites is also just minutes away to schools, government offices, and transportation facilities, including British International School, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and the Light Railway Transits.
Inside, Monarch Parksuites is teeming with facilities and amenities that compete with the excitement of its location. Its amenities cover an area of over 8,000 square meters. It boasts of an Olympic-sized pool, a gourmet dining suite, media room, gym, billiards room, and reading room. Outdoors, it has a tennis court, basketball court, landscaped parterre, sunken garden, barbecue deck, and children’s play area.
“Without a doubt, owning a unit in Monarch Parksuites is a great investment, whether you want to live in it or rent it out,” says Elizabeth Ventura, president of Anchor Land. “There is an increasing demand for residential and commercial space in the area, which creates a great opportunity for high rental income as many are eager to live within this much coveted and extremely strategic location.”
