Top 3 Reasons To Invest in The Trion Towers
Travelling down the 23+ km stretch of EDSA, the longest and most congested highway in Metro Manila, one will inevitably pass through six of the seventeen local government units of Metro Manila. This includes Caloocan, Quezon City, San Juan, Mandaluyong, Makati and Pasay, which will bring you through the major financial districts of Makati, Ortigas Center and Araneta Center. EDSA is part of Circumferential Road 4 (C-4), a network of roads and bridges that acts as the fourth thoroughfare or thruway for the City of Manila. So important is this beltway that areas around it are marked with great economic and industrial growth, as seen in the fact that all but 2 industrial centers in the Metropolis are directly accessible from the thoroughfare.
One of the most progressive business districts that run parallel to EDSA is Bonifacio Global City (aka BGC, Global City, and The Fort). Located 11 km south east of the center of Manila in Taguig City, BGC is between EDSA and the C-5 Road. It totals 240-hectares of wide roads, relaxing parks, glistening high-rise office buildings, stimulating commercial centers and a number of residential enclaves, making it Metro Manila’s newest central business district. Not a few corporations, both local and multinational, have bought property at The Fort with plans to relocate their global, regional or national head offices in this central business district. As such, The Fort is conveniently located not too far away from Manila’s domestic and international airports, and a number of central business districts including: Makati, Rockwell Center, Ortigas Center and Pasig.
All real estate purchases are inevitably assessed through set criteria, primary of which is Location. As such, The Fort is a preferred urban residential habitat, offering prime amenities for in-city living. The flooding of streets that has plagued several areas of Metro Manila, is markedly absent from the streets of The Fort. This is due to an underground five-story tank that collects rainwater that will eventually be flushed out to Manila Bay after the heavy rains. There is also a marked absence of power lines, water meters and gas pipelines in The Fort. Thanks to the effective partnership of government and private firms involved in the development of BGC, electricity is supplied to buildings through hidden underground wires, resulting in the city’s clean landscape. Also buried underground is the gas pipeline network, together with fibre optic communications network for high-speed internet, VOIP and local phone lines to businesses and residences.
Last year, property developers sold 38,800 residential condominium units in Metro Manila, about 25 percent higher than the volume sold in 2015. The volume of new residential launches, however, eased by 12 percent last year to 23,000. Another 22, 800 units is expected to be delivered this year. This represents a rebound in the condo market after four straight years of decline, mainly due to favourable interest rates that encouraged buyers to acquire condominium units. A massive supply in residential property is projected for the next four years. Investors who purchase condominiums for rental purposes will have to find developments that stand out from the crowd, to ensure their units don’t remain vacant and their rental income remains firm.
With so many condominium projects to choose from, it pays to look for a reliable brand name in the real estate market, to distinguish a project from its competitors.

These features, on top of the multiple awards from the real estate industry, complement Robinsons Land Corporation’s own meritorious brand as a successful real estate developer, adding value to projects like The Trion Towers. This translates into a higher price point for unit owners at The Trion Towers, either as a sale or as rental income, both of which consumers are prepared to shoulder. Customer loyalty is inspired by strong brands, sometimes leading to repeat sales and word-of mouth recommendation. Another advantage of a strong brand is that stakeholders gain access to better terms and conditions for sales and/or remodels, as buyers and sellers are more likely to want to associate themselves with top selling brands, such as The Trion Towers of Robinsons Land Corporation
