Anchoring Mega-Manila’s northern transport and commercial hubs, Vertis North is quickly becoming Quezon City’s prime central business district. Vertis North is a convergence point for major commercial areas, existing transport developments and Mega Manila’s upcoming infrastructure projects such as MRT 7 and the Unified Grand Central station, set to open by 2020 and 2022 respectively, as well as the Metro Manila Subway targeted for full completion by 2025.
Quezon City, the largest city in the metropolis, is reflective of the country’s rapid economic growth. As a result of this, Quezon City has posted the highest increase in office spaces in Metro Manila at 22%, evidence of growing economic activity and demand. However, most of these office spaces and developments are designed for the BPO/KPO office market, with few equipped for the requirements of corporate headquarters and premium grade office spaces. Tenants and investors also tend to move up to higher-grade office spaces over time, demonstrating a preference for quality over cost as their business operations thrive and expand. At this level, special or unique facilities and international certifications, such as LEED, are viewed as key differentiators in the competitive market.
Already home to prestigious universities, creative hubs, and government offices, there is a demand and opportunity for a premium grade office development in Quezon City that can rival those in the gleaming business districts of Makati and BGC.
Quezon City’s Distinct Landmark
Located at the heart of Vertis North is the 2-hectare Vertis North Gardens. The estate’s ‘green heart’ integrates Vertis North developments with parks and civic spaces and bike and pedestrian lanes transforming the area into an impressive and progressive, people-centric, urban centerpiece. Incidentally, Vertis North Gardens covers about the same land area as Ayala Triangle Gardens in the Makati CBD.Located at the heart of Vertis North is the 2-hectare Vertis North Gardens.
