More than just being recognized as the “City of the Stars,” there is a myriad of reasons why Quezon City shines on.
Back in the day, Quezon City was recognized worldwide as a significant city where the historic People Power Revolution occurred. Today, it is the most populous city in the metropolis, and is one of the more highly urbanized cities in Metro Manila. While Makati City is recognized as the Philippines’ financial district, QC is the designated hub of information technology and entertainment industry in the Philippines–both of which have afforded the city a good reputation.
In a nutshell, Quezon City is by far the largest and most populous city in Metro Manila. The city is home to a cross-section of returning OFWs, Filipinos, people in the information tech industry, students and several celebrities who thrive under the metropolitan’s idyllic and charming cosmopolitan vibe. For many years, individuals from all over the country benefited from the excellent educational opportunities available in Quezon City. Similarly, locals from neighboring cities and provinces also descend to the city for its limitless and diverse shopping options.
Admittedly, the daily commute in Quezon City is nothing to write home about. By now, residents in the area can already attest to EDSA’s constantly bad traffic. However, perpetual traffic seems to be the only drawback to living in Quezon City (and the dilemma exists only to people who work in neighboring cities and need to commute daily). Otherwise, Quezon City is still arguably one of the best places to live in Metro Manila. With the construction of the MRT Line 7, public transportation within the city will be a viable alternative to the daily commute once it starts running.
While the city is highly urbanized, its ecological and economic features make it distinct. Today, Quezon City remains at the top.
An excellent city for families
While it is hard to believe that Quezon does not have its fair share of noise and pollution, prospective residents and homebuyers will be pleased to know that the city is peppered with residential options ideal for families.
As escaping the noise and pollution might be a bit of a challenge, Quezon City has a lot more residential options that offer peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.
Today, The high number of private subdivisions, gated villages and condos in Quezon City ensure that prospective homebuyers have an expansive selection to choose from.
2) Accessibility and ease of transportation
Apart from being the City of the Stars, Quezon City is also designated as the country’s premier gateway. In this regard, the city must step up in terms of transportation, and it certainly delivers.
While most of the commuters have shared their less-than-favorable experiences riding the MRT and LRT, the local government is beefing up the existing modes of transportation in Quezon City. With the LRT Line 2, commuters have easy access to places between Marikina and Manila.
Incidentally, it might prove to be a good alternative as it essentially decongests the other modes of transportation. Similarly, the city’s thoroughfares are peppered with jeepneys, to ensure that making your way through the city is not only easy but affordable as well.
3) One of the most progressive cities in Metro Manila
Quezon City is one of the most progressive localities in Metro Manila, making it one of the premier cities for employment and career advancement opportunities. The city is rife with potential business opportunities as well, given its large population area. From IT parks and buildings, BPO companies, international and local corporations, residents in search of employment can take their pick.
