Lifestyle Salcedo Makati Condo Offers
Everything on this blog post are based on my personal day to day experiences.
I have heard reactions of other people living outside Makati Central Business District, to them the area is all about traffic and congestion however for me, who has been living here for more than 5 years, these two factors is why i love the area so much.
Salcedo Makati is commonly known as The Financial Heart of Makati City where you can find Top Prominent Offices and them most busy street in the country, Ayala Avenue. This street is heavily compared to the same lifestyle offered in manhattan New York. It’s right in the center of all action of the Business District.
Sounds too busy right? As if it’s not suitable for families, retirees and seems too loud?
That’s what i thought at first, until 2 days after living here everything instantly changed and made perfect sense why properties in the area offers the highest land values in the country.
As you all know, I’m a licensed Real Estate Broker and is currently based in Makati. The best decision i had to date is to start living at Salcedo Village, everything became easier and convenient. To walk you thru my daily routine, I wake up in the morning an hour before my office call time. I take a bath, breakfast and able to bring my daughter to school which is basically 1 minute away by car. I can walk her everyday but i still prefer to use a car as it gets really hot even in the morning. This alone is a total advantage. Before moving here I used to live at Paranaque, it would take me an hour just to get thru SLEX. That 1 hour now, i have already took a bath, breakfast, bring my daughter to school, get to work still several minutes before call time.
Everything i need on a daily basis is usually just around Makati, it’s the Biggest Business District and 90% of the time all your meetings and other activities would just be around the area. I have a car but i barely need it right now. I walk to everything i need, I can to the mall, offices, meetings, schools, churches etc. I actually just use my car on weekends.
When I get too lazy to cook, it’s definitely not a problem. You’ll never run out of food chains around. If fast food is not an option, still no problem. There are tons and tons of international cuisine restaurants around. There are probably 5 grocery stores inside the Village and several mix commercial complexes for whatever you need.
Traffic? It’s actually the SOLUTION. In Makati, living in a Salcedo Condo, you’ll never get traffic since you can actually walk to everything you need. While others are stuck driving you can just walk 5 – 10 minutes to where you need to be. Walking by the way has been very convenient and safe. All major roads are connected by overhead and under ground walk ways leading from end and entry points of Ayala Avenue.
Night Outs? Not a problem. The usual night out spots are basically Greenbelt and Global City. Global City is 10 – 20 minutes away by car while Greenbelt is just walking distance away. You don’t only save time and effort but parking rates too.
Rush hour in Makati CBD is from 5-8PM. Guess what, after rush hour this neighborhood transforms into a perfect gem. It becomes very quiet, peaceful and just a perfect haven for all kinds of profile. The type of people living in the area are mostly expats, diplomats, consulates, top executives and alike. These are the people you’ll meet around on a daily basis. Quality scattered all over the place.
Adding to this, there are 54 embassies and 36 consulates in the area. Just imagine the security 24 hours 7 days a week.
5 Years in the area, perfect is all i can say. Convenience, Luxury, Quality, Neighborhood. I cannot think of a place better than this, Salcedo is definitely my Top Location for Condo Units. Everything i need is literally short walk away, the lifestyle may be fast pace however it totally changes after rush hour.
Now in the hunt for a property? Man, don’t skip the chance. LIVE in SALCEDO MAKATI! It’s totally worth it, the best decision i had so far.
