Holding jurisdiction to approximately half of Ortigas Center, one of Metro Manila’s mots important business districts, Mandaluyong can be argued as one of the best places in the National Capital Region to find a condo for sale or for rent. Not only that—the city now features a number of upcoming business districts that offer a more affordable alternative to Ortigas Center; namely, Pioneer Street and Greenfield District. These areas now boast plenty of condo developments, which in turn are teeming with plenty of condos for rent.
Being situated directly north of Makati, northwest of Taguig, east of Manila, south of Quezon City, it is no coincidence that plenty of property-seekers choose Mandaluyong as their home base in Metro Manila. Not only are condos for rent in this city more affordable, they also come in a wide range of budgets, ensuring there is something for everyone.
A good place to start looking for condos in Mandaluyong is Pioneer Street close to EDSA. This area boasts plenty of condo developments, many of which built by the country’s largest real estate developers, including SMDC, Empire East Holdings, Robinsons Land, DMCI Homes, and Avida Land. Among the best-known condo developments in Pioneer Street (and surrounding locales) where condos for rent can be found include Light Residences, Pioneer Woodlands, Avida Towers Centera, Flair Residences, Gateway Garden Heights, Cityland Pioneer, and Gateway Regency, among many others. A furnished one-bedroom condo unit for rent, measuring 32 sqm, for example, has a monthly rental rate of Php20,000.
For a place that is closer to Ortigas Center, then the Greenfield District area is the place to go. This recently developed mixed-use project boasts newer condo towers, which include Grand Soho Central and Twin Oaks Place (a third condo—Zitan—is currently being built). A studio condo unit for rent in Grand Soho Central measuring 32 sqm has a monthly rental rate of Php20,000, which is perfect for young professionals working in Ortigas Center.
For a more quiet location, then may we suggest Barangay Barangka and the Coronado Street area, which is close to Pasig River. This area, a stone’s throw away from both the Estrella Bridge and Makati–Mandaluyong Bridge, allows would-be residents easy access to Rockwell Center and the Makati CBD, respectively. The best-known condo developments found here are Tivoli Garden Residences by DMCI Homes and Acqua Private Residences by Century Properties. A two-bedroom apartment in Tivoli Garden Residences’ Iris Tower, for example, can be rented for Php32,000 per month.
