Young family finds ‘second home’ in DMCI Homes’ QC condo community
Residential condominiums continue to evolve as versatile solutions to urban living challenges.
While startup families and young professionals continue to drive demand for condos as primary homes, global real estate services company Colliers International noted in one of their studies that there is a growing clamor for condominiums as halfway homes because of Metro Manila’s worsening traffic conditions.
Businesswoman Rovelyn Feliciano, for one, was looking for a convenient place to stay for her family to cut every day travel time from their house in Pulilan, Bulacan to the metro since her children go to school in Quezon City.
“It’s a bit exhausting for me and for my kids so we decided to look for a place situated between QC and Bulacan because I still have to go to my office in Bulacan every day,” said Feliciano who owns a trading firm specializing in industrial products in her home province.
Accustomed to living in a 200-square meter house, Feliciano admitted having second thoughts of residing in a condo as she wanted a bigger dwelling space for her husband Edison and their two children, Eilynn and Edison Jr.
But all of her apprehensions changed when they visited a model unit in DMCI Homes’ Zinnia Towers resort-inspired development in Balintawak in early 2017.
“We considered other developers aside from DMCI Homes, which was second or third in our list. But when we saw the location, the security and the amenities plus the environment, then that’s the time we decided where to live,” Feliciano beamed.
