From food hub to thriving gateway
Remember that time when your mom repurposed her old pair of red (gasp!) jeans and turned it into a tote bag you can use for school? You promised yourself you’d never be caught dead in that pair of jeans, but the moment you arrived at school with your “new” jeans tote, everyone was “ooh”-ing and “aah”-ing at such an ingenious idea.
What about that really old suitcase you used for years? It traveled with you to your most favorite places so you refused to part with it. Its broken wheels and cracked hard shell, however, have rendered it unfit to travel with you. You were broken-hearted until you realized you can give it a new purpose by turning it into a pet bed. And it was like hitting the jackpot: you no longer have to throw your vintage suitcase away and at the same time, your furry, four-legged baby now has her own ultra chic, one-of-a-kind bed.
Repurposing land use
Repurposing something to fit a new use can indeed be beneficial. This concept does not only apply to clothes and accessories—it may also be done to furniture, vehicles, and even land.
In real estate, repurposing a parcel of land can turn out to be favorable to the community, and even to its neighboring areas. The redevelopment of idle or outmoded properties into masterplanned, satellite communities can give these areas new purpose.
Case in point: a portion of the former Food Terminal Inc. in Taguig is being transformed to serve as the new southern gateway to the country’s capital.
The 74-ha Arca South, a mixed-use development by Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), is poised to become the central business district south of the metro, breathing new life to an area that used to be a food hub.
Designed to be a highly-networked, integrated development, ALI combines efficient and innovative urban planning, green spaces and a multi-linked transportation system. Refreshing streetscapes and, more importantly, pedestrian-friendly streets will encourage residents and those who will go to work here to walk throughout the district. Sixty percent of the estate will be for open spaces.
The estate will likewise be home to contemporary residential towers by Ayala Land Premier, Alveo Land and Avida Land.
Avida Towers Vireo
One project that would surely suit the needs of every millennial wanting to invest on a property is Avida Towers Vireo.
It is strategically located such that residents have direct access to Arca South’s main street which will enable them to simply walk to retail shops, dining establishments, workspaces and more via “a green, walkable space.” Avida Towers Vireo also promises accessibility to the metro’s other business districts and proximity to a number of major thoroughfares. It is also an easy drive to the city’s premier shopping destinations, commercial hubs and restaurants, schools and universities, health facilities as well as churches.
Spoiled for choices
Topnotch amenities such as as indoor gym, a game room, a children’s playground, a clubhouse, adult and kiddie pools and landscaped areas await residents at the three-tower residential development. With Avida Towers Vireo as one’s address, one is spoiled for choice when it comes to stress-busting activities especially after a long and tiring day at work.
Those who will call Avida Towers Vireo home can look forward to spacious, thoughtfully designed, well-laid out units. True to ALI’s commitment of providing sustainable living spaces, the project boasts of an efficient design that ensures better air ventilation and efficient flow of sunlight.
