3 reasons why Parklinks is the healthiest place to live in the metro
The spaces we live in play a major contribution to the quality of human life. Communities that don’t just promise convenient living, but also help us create healthier, deeper relationships, cultivate productivity and growth, and connect us with what we consider vital.
In Parklinks you can experience the quiet of the suburbs and the infectious energy of the metropolis. A joint venture of Eton Properties Philippines, Inc. (EPPI) and Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI), Parklinks is a 35-hectare mixed-use development that is envisioned to be the developers’ greenest urban estate in Metro Manila.
Aside from being a joint project of two trusted names in the country’s property development industry, here are the top reasons why Parklinks is the newest district to look forward to:
1. You can take a 5-minute walk to parks and other open spaces
Living in a community with abundant green spaces like Parklinks is not just sustainable and pleasing to the eye. According to World Health Organization, residing near parks, meadows, and/or any green space is linked to many health benefits. Having access to green infrastructure can boost your immune system, reduce stress, and improve mental health. It also helps in “facilitating physical activity and relaxation and form a refuge from noise.”
Given its size, it has the liberty to offer the community something that the area sorely lacks––abundance of open spaces. In fact, 50% of the entire area will be generously devoted to parks and open spaces. Located at the heart of the district, this 3-hectare park called Central Park is conceived to encourage social interaction. For bikers and those who just want to enjoy the solitude, a visit to the River Park Terraces sounds like a plan. It consists of parks overlooking the river and even includes bike lanes, a viewing deck, nursery, and café. There’s also the Riparian Gardens, which is a “pocket garden” in the vicinity, patterned after the natural landscape of the area. They also have the River Esplanade, a civic space fronting the river and directly accessible from Ayala Land Premier’s development.
Through a well-designed and managed walkway system, the green spaces will be a mere 5-minute walk for residents, office workers and the public from the mall, offices and living spaces. It’s because the open spaces are strategically dispersed that, from any point within the estate, an open space is just a short 250 meters away.
Because of Parklinks’ size and scale, residents will achieve not just an active lifestyle, but also a constant connection with nature.
2. Living productively is a walk in the park with its balanced mix of developments
The estate will be accentuated by the Parklinks Lifestyle Mall which is set to open in 2022. It’s a regional mall with 53,000 square meters of leasable area that will be situated along the estate’s C-5 frontage. The 5-storey premium shopping center features a range of retail, dining and entertainment offerings–making it perfect in terms of balancing the vast nature in the urban development of the Parklinks. On top of the mall is a 3,500-sqm sports complex that will house a basketball court, volleyball court, badminton courts, fitness gym, and dance studio to support and inspire an active lifestyle.
Soon, residents of Ayala Land Premier (ALP), Alveo and Avida will enjoy immediate access to this retail and leisure hub surrounded by a system of parks. Earlier this year, ALP’s Parklinks North Tower launched 280 units ranging from one- to four-bedroom configurations with only four to eight units per floor providing an exclusive environment in a vibrant urban setting.
3. You are conveniently and efficiently connected to the major CBDs
Parklinks promises a premium experience and convenient lifestyle for its residents. As a matter of fact, those who are planning to settle down in this green urban estate need not worry about having access to parks, offices, shopping malls, and other establishments. Situated in Pasig City and Quezon City, Parklinks is conveniently nestled near the major central business districts (CBDs), namely the Makati Business District, the Ortigas Center, the Bonifacio Global City, and the Triangle Park in QC.
This development, which also serves as a gateway to everything you need, is flanked by other exclusive residential communities such as the Corinthian Gardens, Greenmeadows, White Plains, and Acropolis. Apart from that, going to work or school will become a less frazzling task as it is already proximate to prominent schools such as the University of the Philippines, the Ateneo de Manila University, Miriam College, St. Pedro Poveda College, and the University of Asia and the Pacific.
The estate is accessible via major thoroughfares: C-5, Amang Rodriguez Avenue and Ortigas Avenue. Moreover, the government is constructing a 4-lane elevated flyover along C-5 that will bypass the busy intersection of Eastwood and Greenmeadows. This project is part of the Metro Manila Interchanges Construction Project Phase IV. It is Parklinks also includes additional linkages to the estate’s neighboring communities. You can use the time you save from traffic in other productive endeavors and fulfilling activities.
But those are not the only factors that make living in Parklinks a breath of fresh air. There will also be a 110-meter long and 25-meter wide bridge, that will define the identity of the estate, will be built. It is designed to link the cities of Quezon and Pasig over the Marikina River, and is expected to be instrumental in easing the vehicular traffic in the northeast and east of Metro Manila. The bridge will have dedicated lanes for bikers and pedestrians alike, allowing a safe and convenient commute within and around the development. The iconic design and architecture of the bridge that will make for a spectacular and Instagram-worthy spot will unleash your inner shutterbug.
Needless to say, Parklinks is the healthiest place for families who are looking for green open spaces, variety, balance, and convenience. For more information, visit www.parklinks.ph. INQUIRER.net BrandRoom/TV
