The pandemic has triggered the desire of many for a relaxed rural lifestyle equipped with modern amenities of urban living. In Metro Manila, there are only a few ‘new normal’ residential havens, and Marikina City is one of them.

Marikina is a quick getaway to the beautiful natural surroundings of Rizal.  One can easily take a hike at Masungi Georeserve, take a dip in the refreshing waters of Tinipak River, be awed by the Pililia Wind Farm, or simply appreciate the Sierra Madre mountains from a roadside cafe.

The country’s shoe capital boasts of tree-lined streets, clean surroundings, hassle-free roadways, and parks and playgrounds. Yet, it also has numerous business and commercial areas and industrial centers. No wonder Marikina is fast rising as a preferred spot for new community developments.

One of the early real estate developers which saw the promise and potential of Marikina is Horizon Land Property Development Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Federal Land, Inc. It developed 17 hectares of prime land along Sumulong Highway for a mixed-use mid-to-high rise master-planned community. Horizon Land’s Marikina community is nestled against the wondrous backdrop of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range in the East and a spectacular view of the metropolis in the Southwest.

“We strive to deliver an uncompromised modern living experience unique to the city of Marikina and its people, especially as Filipinos across the country adjust to the ‘new normal.’  This is why, over the years, we have consistently evolved and grown the dynamic city center by constantly launching more residential and commercial projects that respectfully blend the advantages of contemporary urban landscapes with the appeal and livability of the laid-back suburban backdrop inherent to Marikina,” said Horizon Land Property Development Corp., General Manager John Cabato.

Federal Land, which celebrates its 50th year in the industry, upholds its commitment to building thoughtfully designed spaces that create a positive impact for generations to come as it not only offers quality living at the heart of Marikina but also a world of convenience with a self-sustaining community nestled comfortably away from the hustle and bustle of the greater metropolis and easily accessible through major roads and highways.


Exclusive communities

People seeking refuge, families moving up to the city, dynamic professionals needing a secure and relaxed place, and business thinkers looking for a good investment can pick between Marquinton Residences, Tropicana Garden City, and Siena Towers.

Siena Towers, their newest two-building development in this integrated district, serves as an oasis of comfort and serenity with its intimate community.  Inspired by the Italian town of Siena, where rural charm and modern progress abound, Siena Towers offers one-bedroom and two-bedroom units designed to efficiently and effectively maximize personal space for comfort and unrestricted movement.

Set to launch in mid-2022, Siena Tower Two offers fresh new inventory to the Marikina community. Tower Two will stand 22 stories high and offer 297 units in one- and two-bedroom variations. The one-bedroom units range from 23 sqm to 39.50 sqm, while the two-bedroom units range from 48 sqm to 72.50 sqm with balcony or lanai options. These will provide comfortable living spaces that allow residents to nurture a balanced and dynamic lifestyle as they face the ‘next normal.’

Nearby Marquinton Residences and Tropicana Garden City provide functional and quality ready-for-occupancy residences, all sensibly designed, accessible, and nestled in nurturing and safe environments.

Marquinton Residences is a medium-rise legacy residential community perfect for families.  Tropicana Garden City, just like what its name connotes, is a multi-tower lush residential enclave that proudly shows off its green architecture that fosters environment preservation.

These homes and communities provide first-rate amenities and facilities geared towards a balanced lifestyle, enriching the lives of individuals and families.

Horizon Land’s Marikina community also has a good mix of commercial spaces and dining hotspots alongside its residential condominiums. Across Siena Towers is the Blue Wave Mall which features quaint, homegrown retail selections, popular chain stores, and office spaces.  Along its prominent Sumulong Highway frontage is the newly opened S&R Marikina, a two-storey 5,000 sqm membership shopping space accessible to Marikina City and the nearby province of Rizal. The popular American fast-food chain Panda Express is also set to open its first drive-through in the country right beside Siena Towers soon, complementing the community’s existing dining options.

Residents of the Horizon Land’s Marikina community are just a few kilometers away from business hubs and IT parks; premier schools like the Marikina Science High School, Ateneo de Manila University, Miriam College, Center for Culinary Arts, and the University of the Philippines, Diliman; regional shopping malls such as Ayala Malls Feliz, and SM City Marikina, and accessible leisure spots and major weekend destinations like the Marikina River Park, Shoe Museum, and Marikina Sports Center.

“We aim to uplift living standards within this vibrant mixed-use neighborhood by continuously introducing and infusing our projects with thoughtfully-designed amenities, relevant features, and seamless connectivity to a diverse set of commercial establishments and recreational spots that complement the community’s daily activities, lifestyles, and workstyles moving forward,” Cabato concluded.
