Property Hunting in Quezon City


In terms of big cities, it doesn’t get any bigger in Metro Manila than Quezon City.

The largest city in the National Capital Region both in terms of area and population, it stands to reason that QC, as it is colloquially known, has a significant amount of available options in real estate.


Before making the assumption that availability is the only reason to consider property hunting in Quezon City, it is best to know more about the locale to understand what makes its real estate choices viable investments.

One of the most dynamic metropolitan areas in the Philippines, Quezon City continues to be placed in high regard among Asian cities in terms of economic potential, cost-effectiveness, and overall quality of life.

Thriving Commercial Centers

Many areas in QC are made to be a consortium of conveniences for those who are within the city. Cubao has always been its main commercial center, as the area hosts a number of shopping malls, the farmer’s plaza and market, as well as the famous Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Other commercial centers have emerged in the city in recent decades as well, most notable of which are Eastwood City and the U.P.-Ayala TechnoHub. A commercial and residential development, Eastwood City is the first cyberpark in the Philippines which provides the convenience of technology amenities to both its residential communities and offices.The U.P-Ayala TechnoHub, on the other hand, is a campus-based development for technology development and research, and an ideal location for business outsource processing firms.

Other large-scale real estate projects in QC already rising include the 29-hectare Vertis North, touted to become QC’s newest central business district. When completed, Vertis North will have approximately 45 towers and buildings composed of offices, shopping malls, hotels, and residential condominiums. Ayala subsidiaries have already launched condo projects here: High Park by Alveo Land and Avida Towers Vita.

Over to the northern side of EDSA is Cloverleaf Balintawak, which is an 11-hectare master-planned green urban development by Ayala Land. This project when completed will boast of residential condo towers, office complexes, healthcare facilities, a shopping mall and other retail areas, and lots of open spaces. It will also be conveniently located close to major roads, such as EDSA, the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), and A. Bonifacio Avenue, and when the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 is completed, a ramp will be constructed leading to it.

A Green City Suitable for Learning

While major areas of the city continue to enjoy high levels of development, QC has also managed to earn a reputation as a green city. The city administration continues being active in the implementation of environmental initiatives, including strong climate change mitigation initiatives, which have earned recognition internationally, and green building programs. The results are evident with the significant transformation of the Payatas Landfill with its biogas emission reduction plant, which is registered with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), its “blue and green” campaign to promote greenery in public spaces, and its bio diversity profiling  in a city with the largest network of parks in the Philippines.

Quezon City is also home to a good number of educational institutions, most recognizable of which are the University of the Philippines Diliman and the Ateneo de Manila University.
These institutions of higher learning make the city a popular choice for house-hunters.

Residential Real Estate in Quezon City

Aside from condo projects within mixed-use townships, Quezon City also provides plenty of housing options in its many residential areas and gated communities. Homes range from the modest to the premium, most of which can be previewed from dependable property listing websites like Lamudi. The following are a sampling of Quezon City districts, neighborhoods, and developments where properties for sale can be had.

Eastwood City

Megaworld Corporation’s first mixed-use township project, Eastwood City is a 17-hectare IT-BPO-focused development located in Barangay Bagumbayan. It currently hosts approximately 12 high-rise condo developments, including One Eastwood Avenue, Eastwood LeGrand, and One Orchard Road, among many others, as well as offices, banks, shops and restaurants.

Vertis North

Vertis North is a 29-hectare development by Ayala Land, which is located in the North Triangle area close to the real estate giant’s TriNoma Mall. Comprising residential, commercial, and leisure components, Vertis North will have high-rise condos, a high-end hotel, shopping areas, and lots of green spaces when completed.

Corinthian Gardens

One of the most exclusive subdivisions in Metro Manila, 82-hectare Corithian Gardens is located at the corner of EDSA and Ortigas Avenue. It also boasts of some of the most expensive houses one can find in Metro Manila. Lamudi 2015 data shows that house price in the village averages Php155 million.

White Plains

Like its neighbor Corinthian Gardens to the south, White Plains is another upscale Quezon City subdivision that is quite popular among well-heeled property buyers. Its proximity to Cubao, the Katipunan Avenue area, and Ortigas Center is one of its biggest draws. A typical four-bedroom and four-bathroom house and lot here has an average asking price of Php74 million.

New Manila

Previously nicknamed the “Hollywood of the Philippines,” New Manila was home to Sampaguita Pictures, one of the first studios to produce original Filipino films, while Sampaguita’s rival LVN also put up a studio in nearby Cubao, making the popular district the go-to destination for some of the most popular stars back then. These are part of the reasons why New Manila achieved its prominence as the most sought-after neighborhood to build a home.

The district is one of the most searched neighborhoods online in the Lamudi website—a testament to its enduring draw, even as new townships are built and business districts developed. Plenty of real estate developers have taken notice and the neighborhood and its surrounding areas are now home to plenty of upscale real estate projects, including Magnolia Residences by Robinsons Land Campanilla Lane by Manosa Properties.
