Creating homes for kids

The horrendous traffic in the metro has gone from bad to worse. If one computes the number of hours that he or she is stuck in traffic, it would probably amount to 365 days of wasted time on the road.

Major thoroughfares like Edsa continue to be congested, as it operates beyond its maximum capacity of 288,000 vehicles. It’s no surprise therefore that Edsa turns into a parking lot during the rush hour.

On a typical day, about 70 percent of the road space is occupied by cars that carry only 13 percent of trips, while 28 percent are used by public transport that account for roughly 70 percent of trips.


Perfect alternative

Thus, more Filipinos are resorting to transit-oriented developments for faster commutes. Proximity to their workplace or schools provide an alternative to traffic-weary citizens, and it has become among the top considerations in choosing a new home.

Trusted home developer Empire East Land Holdings Inc. created developments that are near transport hubs such as light rail transit system (LRT) and Metro rail transit (MRT); other forms of public transport; and major thoroughfares.

Empire East president and CEO Atty. Anthony Charlemagne Yu has already made it his mission to provide quality homes with convenient access to public transport, thus offering a more viable option against Edsa’s traffic.

All three of the company’s transit-oriented developments—Little Baguio Terraces, Pioneer Woodlands and Covent Garden, are near transport hubs. Hence, these projects have become an attractive option to those who wish to avoid the gridlock in the metro.

Indeed, there are clear and tangible benefits of living in a transit-oriented development, in this day and age when traffic robs you of your time, resources, and productivity.

Conducive for families


But more than just being the pioneer of transit oriented developments, Empire East has been steadily partnering with Filipino families in creating homes that are truly conducive to raising a family.

Apart from offering the utmost in convenience and accessibility, the developments by Empire East also put the welfare of the family at the core of its operations. Over the years, the company has built projects that are not only family oriented but are kid-friendly as well.

Each development incorporates key features and amenities meant to not only provide a more relaxed lifestyle but would, more importantly, allow every child to create the best memories while growing up.

For instance, the play area in each of its projects allows parents to bond with their kids through various games and to encourage them to explore different worlds through role playing. The pools and basketball courts likewise promote a healthy lifestyle and could help develop a kid’s ability to be an effective team player.

Moreover, Empire East developments have daycare centers where kids can discover and learn. Through these daycare centers, children are equipped with enough knowledge that would allow them to reach their full potential eventually. After all, the company believes that education and physical activity play a significant role in ensuring the success of an individual.
