There are two types of residences: the kind you live in, and the kind you call home. For many people, their first apartment is a place to live in; it’s a room where they can rest their weary heads after coming home from work. They can entertain guests every now and then, but for the most part, it’s a stepping stone to relax in while they save up for something better. You set it up knowing full well that it’ll be a temporary pit stop in the grand scheme of things.
That something better is the kind of residence people call home. Unlike a residence you simply live in, homes are places you envision spending the rest of your life in. You grow into it and make it your own. It becomes your comfort zone, a space you can count on for any of your personal needs, be it in private or in the company of loved ones. It’s your refuge from a world that can at once be so large and strange and unattached. A home, as the saying goes, is where your heart stays. For most folks in the city, condo units have the potential to be a true home.
The townships by Megaworld at the Fort, however, are more than just homes. They’re a lifestyle.
At first glance, living in a township seems like living in a regular condo. The prerequisite four walls, bed and bath, and kitchen areas are in each unit. You actually own the unit instead of just renting it, so you can customize your space almost as you wish – provided your plans get the approval of the building’s administrators, of course. Some condos have common function areas open for use by the tenants. Others have health and recreational facilities like pools, gyms, and playgrounds for children. In several areas, condos are built near malls, giving owners the added bonus of convenience for those days they’d like to spend outside.
Where townships stand out, however, is their scale. The townships developed by Megaworld at the Fort cover dozens of acres, establishing a full-fledged community within that space. Not only do townships offer residential areas, but they also host office buildings, commercial centers, recreational spaces, and even schools. You can live, work, play, learn, and shop in every township. By living in a township, you get much more value than a regular condo simply because of the area that surrounds it.
It certainly helps that Megaworld’s townships are designed with sterling world-class inspirations in mind. McKinley Hill, for instance, captures the romance and elegance of Mediterranean living in its layout and aesthetics. Uptown Bonifacio, on the other hand, takes you to the heights of cosmopolitan living, letting you live life in true urban luxury. Forbes Town Center is a landmark in itself, nestled in the heart of Metro Manila’s fastest-growing central business district. McKinley West strikes a gorgeous harmony between modern city living and lush, vibrant greenery.
The townships are a testament to Megaworld’s commitment to building lifestyles rather than just structures. Like its lifestyle mall projects in Eastwood City, Newport Mall, and Lucky Chinatown, Megaworld townships cater to people who want complete, 360-degree experiences in everything they do. Townships let you walk to work, spend a leisurely lunch at your favorite café, and buy a happy little surprise for your loved ones before heading back to your beautiful home. You can send your kids to one of three different international schools in the area, and shop for their packed meals at the nearby S&R. Lazy weekend afternoons are met with a number of options, with numerous commercial centers offering the best movies, food, and shopping in town. In a nutshell, Megaworld’s townships want to inspire you to live your life to the fullest, and to give you everything you need to do so.
While regular condos necessitate you heading out – sometimes to a different city entirely – to make the most of life, Megaworld townships make it easy by keeping everything close by. They are, in their very essence, lifestyle communities. They encourage you to enjoy and develop your lifestyle as you see fit by giving you unparalleled access to the important things in life.
Even ventures outside a township are easier when you live in one, as the townships of Megaworld at the Fort are strategically situated near key roads in Metro Manila. You’ll be able to get to wherever you need to go with ease, thanks to their proximity to C5, EDSA, and Kalayaan Avenue. This, in turn, means that your home at a Megaworld township is also equally easy to return to.Megaworld townships make it easy by keeping everything close by.
