Going to work in the metro becomes a tedious task with all the traffic. And with the upcoming holidays, traffic is seen to get heavier. As a commuter or driver, you are asked to pack a ton of patience to get you through it.


But that should not be the case. You have a choice to live near your workplace. Having a half-way home may be beneficial to your health and well-being. Walking or being just a drive away from the workplace can reduce your stress levels. It can also be a form of exercise to kick-start your healthy lifestyle.

Consider living nearby Bonifacio Global City (BGC). The vicinity not only offers a premier business address but also is among the most liveable cities in the metro. From its design alone, BGC offers the highest level of comfort that is a fertile ground for creativity as well as better quality of day-to-day life.

With most multinational companies aiming at this area for setting up their businesses, it is also projected as the next financial and lifestyle hub, with the transfer of some big-ticket investors. Soon, the Philippine Stock Exchange will migrate to its new BGC headquarters, as well as other financial giants like the Securities and Exchange Commission, Department of Finance and Bureau of Internal Revenue.

It’s also worth to mention that the government is slowly improving traffic by making plans to construct roads that will connect all the nearby cities to BGC. Last July 20, a road project linking Ortigas Business Center in Pasig City and BGC in Taguig City was inaugurated. The BGC-Ortigas Center Link road project is designed to improve accessibility among the cities of Pasig, Taguig, Mandaluyong, and Makati. The project is expected to be finished by March 2020. This means that travel time between the districts of Pasig and Taguig would take only 12 minutes.

Yet, while we all aim to be where the new financial district is going to be, it proves to be more practical and convenient when choosing a home that is just nearby such as The Rochester in Pasig City.

Located along Elisco Road in San Joaquin, The Rochester is just a 20-minute drive to the schools, workplaces, and malls in BGC. The Rochester is considered home to many young professionals. It is a multi-clustered residential address made up of mid-rise and high-rise buildings. Jogging trails, basketball courts, swimming pools, lounge area and gym and fitness center are available within the property. In here, dwellers are given some downtime from their stressful environments. The Rochester mimics a resort-living lifestyle where communities are built around nature.

Investments with The Rochester’s developer, Empire East Land Holdings Inc., have become synonymous with value and practicality. Providing affordable housing choices for buyers has been the company’s mantra for over two decades. Such developments offer a higher quality of life as well as a highly conducive environment for work and play.
