Pasay may not be the most popular among Metro Manila’s LGUs—it is chaotic and unorganized, and it does not have exciting business and commercial districts that way Makati has Ayala Avenue and the CBD and Taguig has Bonifacio Global City (BGC). However, things are changing really fast for Pasay. Amid its busy streets and fast-pace areas, the city boasts nooks that are quite removed from the mayhem it is renowned for, such as the Villamor Golf Course, the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Complex, and Star City.
For a bit more exciting, Pasay also is home to the Mall of Asia (MOA) Complex, whose centerpiece, the Mall of Asia itself, is the country’s fourth largest shopping mall (and the world’s 10th) that boasts everything from world-renowned fashion retailers to restaurants, an ice skating rink, and IMAX theaters, among many other attractions. The mall also sits beside the 20,000-capacity MOA Arena where pop stars like Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez recently performed. As though these are not enough, the MOA Complex is also being developed into a full-fledged business district complete with office towers and residential condos.
Over at the Villamor Air Base area of Pasay is Megaworld Corp.’s Newport City, a 25-hectare mixed-use township that boasts a casino (Resorts World Manila), upscale hotels, a shopping mall and a performing arts theater, and several high-end residential condo projects. Located just across Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Newport City will be made more accessible to the airport terminal once the elevated, fully air-conditioned pedestrian walkway is completed.
Pasay is indeed one of the most exciting places to live in Metro Manila. And how else can any resident enjoy the flexibility of living here than by finding a condo for rent in the city. As it is quickly developing, many mixed-use estates and condo developments have sprouted in different parts of Pasay over the last few years.
If you fancy living close to the airport, then finding a condo for rent in Newport City might be your best option. This township offers six mid-rise condo projects, some of which have two or three towers. Among those completed condos in Newport include The Residential Resort (Montecito, Sarasota, and Pinecrest), Parkside Villas, Palmtree one and Palmtree Two, 150 Newprt Boulevard, 81 Newport Boulevard, and 101 Newport Boulevard. Listings data from MyProperty shows that a typical 32-sqm condo in Newport City (with parking slot) has a monthly rental rate of Php30,000.
For a lifestyle that involves late-afternoon view of the famed Manila Bay sunset while sipping a glass of wine, condos for rent in MOA Complex are the places to go. Not only are these properties very affordable, they make commute to work easy as Makati and Bonifacio Global City are very accessible via EDSA. Among those well-known condo projects in the MOA Complex include Sea Residences, Shore Residences, and Shell Residences. Listings on MyProperty show that a one-bedroom, fully furnished condo in the MOA Complex has a monthly rental rate of Php35,000.
