To know why the Ortigas is the city of choice for most, read on below.
In comparison to other business districts in the Metro, Ortigas Center has a unique atmosphere that is very relaxing. It’s rare to see people rushing past each other or walking around with a scowl on their faces in this city.
Usual sights early morning and/or evening include residents walking their adorable dogs very leisurely, kids playing at the Ortigas Park, and some people running around for a quick workout. Traffic within the Ortigas CBD is very manageable as well. No pollution overload, no street lights at every corner. Strolling is very much welcome.
Safety Is Priority
As a business district that is almost “compartmentalized,” it is easy to feel safe at Ortigas. There are also police officials in their motorcycles visible on almost every street 24/7, as well as streets that are well-lit throughout the night. Call center employees working nightshifts at Ortigas enjoy the peace of mind knowing that they are safe and secure.
Everything is Walking Distance
Another great thing about Ortigas is that almost everything is walking distance—malls, parks, coffee shops, restaurants, and even transport terminals. And we’re not talking about a grueling 30-45 minute walk. Ortigas is so accessible to everything that it’ll take you 10-15 minutes max to reach a shopping center and an additional 5 minutes more for the MRT stations—plus you get to pick between Ortigas or Shaw stations! For those who prefer not to sweat, there are also lots of fx’s that go around the business district. Got a ride? Lots of affordable parking spaces!
Surrounded by Major Shopping Centers
Want to kill time to avoid the rush hour? Need to buy something important before heading home? Or on the lookout for the latest movies out in the cinemas? Four major malls are there for you—choose from Robinsons Galleria, The Podium, SM Megamall, and EDSA Shangrila! For the latest addition, there’s also the Estancia Mall at Capitol Commons, which is a 10-minute drive from Ortigas Center.
