Pasig has always been associated with the infamous river which bears her name, which flows throughout Manila as silent witness to history. On the other hand, the city can be said to have borrowed the name of this important body of water, which connects Laguna de Bay and Manila Bay. Pasig is derived from a Hindu word meaning "a body of water connecting two bodies of water."
While Pasig River has aged in a rather unflattering manner, Pasig the city has thrived in recent years, emerging as a primary commercial district of the metropolis. Today, the traveler can satisfy his wanderlust going around the streets of Pasig, each corner throbbing with excitement, and providing an allusion to culture and history that have shaped this city.
Being the former capital of the province of Rizal before Metro Manila was formed, the provincial capitol is still located in Pasig City. Pasig is situated along the eastern border of Metro Manila, bordered on the west by Quezon City and Mandaluyong; to the north by Marikina; to the south by Makati, Pateros, and Taguig; and to the east by the municipality of Cainta.
The emergence of Pasig as a highly-industrialized city was instigated by the rise of Ortigas Center, one of the top business districts in the metropolis. There are several high-rise office buildings, schools, and other institutions that dot its imposing skyline, exuding a cosmopolitan image as a progressive city of the future.
Pasig is home to the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P), Rizal High School, the Meralco Compound, the Philippine Stock Exchange headquarters, and the Integrated Bar of the Philippines head office - establishing the area as an important destination for businessmen, expatriates, academicians, students, and other transients.
It is likewise a commercial center, with several hotels for the tourists such as Richmonde Hotel, Crown Plaza Hotel, Astoria Plaza, and Holiday Inn Galleria Manila. Leisure and recreation centers like Robinsons Galleria and Tiendesitas offer various shopping, dining, and entertainment options. For one, the fairly new Tiendesitas ("little stores") which sits along the C5 highway has a wide variety of merchandise separated into "villages" and sourced from all over the country, with very affordable price tags. There are clothes, shoes, furniture, textile, pets, handicraft, souvenirs, and antique items for the shopaholic.
Aside from leisure though, there is much more for Pasig to offer. It has the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, one of the oldest edifices in the city, and the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pasig. Pasig was actually founded in July 1573 with the inauguration of the mission-parish of Pasig. But in 1587, Our Lady of Immaculate Conception replaced Our Lady of the Visitation as the patron saint of Pasig.
As an old city, it also houses antique homes, buildings, churches and museums, among them Bahay ng Tisa, one of the oldest houses in the country built in 1850, and Concepcion Mansion built in 1937. Pasig also boasts of a park built by the local government for its constituents. The Rainforest Park has a swimming pool, a skating rink, a picnic place and a botanical garden.Pasig City is politically subdivided into 30 barangays and was converted into a highly urbanized city through Republic Act 7829, in July 1994. Big companies and organizations continue to set up their offices at Ortigas Center, further establishing the city as a primary residential-industrial, and commercial town.
Among the towering structures now emerging within the city is a prime mid-rise condominium development that aims to address the housing needs of Pasig dwellers. Riverfront Residences, by DMCI Homes, is located in the heart of Pasig City - a sprawling 3.2 hectare-development that exemplifies the modern way of living which the underserved market of young, middle income families deserve.
Bordered on the north by scenic Marikina River, Riverfront is composed of nine, 5-storey buildings which follow a modern contemporary design and named after equally prominent rivers around the world: Nile, Rhine, Colorado, Murray, Jordan, Danube, Missouri, Mississippi, and Ganges.
Soon, this development will be completed to offer a resort-like community for residents, through a wide array of amenities including a 3,000 sqm Sunset View Park, basketball court, spacious lawns, playgrounds, gazebos, pergolas, tree courts, jogging paths, planting areas of herbs and flowers, and fixed barbecue pits for outdoor cookout parties. There is also a main amenity area that offers a swimming pool, a two-story clubhouse with lounge areas, game and audio-visual rooms and bar, and multi-function room - all for the exclusive use of residents and their guests.
Riverfront Residences is situated along Dr. Sixto Antonio Avenue, near major thoroughfares like C5 and EDSA, as well as the business districts and commercial centers of Ortigas, Quezon City and Taguig. Residing here will not only satisfy the insatiable tourist looking for history and culture; it's an experience to be savored daily the moment they step right outside their front door.
