Reasons Makati is the best place to grow your career

Makati has been the financial hub of the Philippines since the 1960s, but there is more to the city than this. Today, it is also the place where creativity and innovation flourish. Traditional office blocks now sit side-by-side with co-working spaces and new ideas and businesses are springing up in Makati every single day. The city was even named as number one in terms of economic dynamism by the National Competitive Council.

If you’re serious about your career, regardless of if you want to work your way up the corporate ladder or plan on fostering the next great idea, Makati is the place it can grow.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of Makati is that it is continuously improving and growing. For example, several infrastructure projects are in the pipeline that will improve connectivity. Groundbreaking on a subway that will serve the entire district is expected to commence this year. The line will have ten stations and is expected to serve an estimated 700,000 riders daily.

This is supported by several other new public transport initiatives including the EDSA BRT project and PNR expansion. Meanwhile, more new walkways and pedestrian crossings are set for Makati to help residents reduce their reliance on cars

While almost five million people make their way to Makati during business hours, the majority of these disperse elsewhere at the end of the day allowing residents of the city to enjoy peaceful evenings and weekends.

Part of this is due to a limited supply and high demand for residential units in Makati. Units in newly launched projects do not last long on the market meaning those who want to live here must act fast.

Red Residences from SMDC is one of the newest condominiums to be launched in the city and it has been tailored for those who want to grow their career and life in Makati. The development is near Ayala Avenue while the lifestyle options that make the city popular can be found nearby.

The amenities also embody the spirit of Makati. There is a zone dedicated to co-working and collaboration; a focus zone with gardens and a lounge; and a fitness area with a swimming pool where you can recharge your batteries.

The longest-running, most trusted and biggest Philippine investment event in the Middle East region, Philippine Property and Investment Exhibition (PPIE), is back. It has helped thousands of OFWs own their very own home. Be part of PPIE 2019 on April 26-27 to reach your aspired home. Like @ppieuae on facebook to get tips and alerts on unbeatable deals.
