Quezon City, or QC as fondly called by the locals, was the product of President Manuel L. Quezon’s dreams when he aspired for a capital that would have replaced Manila as the capital of the Philippines. His vision did not completely materialize since Manila was redeclared as the nation’s capital in the mid-1970s, but what used to be a cluster of small towns (which consisted of the historical Balintawak, Novaliches, and San Francisco Del Monte), was eventually named, interestingly enough, after the late president. And so Quezon City was born.
At present, Quezon City has become a melting pot for different cultures. Many people from various provinces have sought for homes in QC, and understandably so. This comes as no surprise as its laidback allure and its welcoming atmosphere makes it a very liveable city. Quezon City takes pride in the fact that people from all walks of life are able to live harmoniously side by side; which probably why it transformed to be the most populous city in the nation as well.
Despite its dense population, Quezon City’s economy is far from struggling, as it continually tops the list as one of the richest cities in the Philippines. It is known to be home to most of the country’s major broadcasting networks, clusters of entertainment centers, shopping malls, and dining establishments. Likewise, the country’s best schools like the Philippine Science High School Main Campus and universities like the University of the Philippines Diliman and Ateneo de Manila University are also housed in the city.
Transportation is no problem in QC because elevated light rail systems, such as the MRT-3 and LRT lines 1 and 2, has stations in several parts of the city. Most notable of these areas include Cubao, the junction of Timog Avenue and EDSA, Quezon Avenue, and North Avenue. Tricycles, jeepneys, buses among other means of public transportation traverse the streets continuously, making one’s daily commute more convenient. All in all, Quezon City is not only an enjoyable place to reside in but is also very convenient.
Quezon City houses numerous business establishments and commercial centers, but residential areas abound the whole city as well. From high-end gated communities, to budget-friendly residences there are endless choices for property hunters here. Some of Quexon City’s most well-known subdivisions or gated communities include Corinthian Gardens and Greenmeadows Subdivision in Barangay Ugong Norte close to Ortigas Center; White Plains next to Camp Aguinaldo; Loyola Heights along Katipunan Avenue; Ayala Heights in Matandang Balara; and Philam Village in West Triangle. These communities are just some of the places in Quezon City where a house and lot for sale can be had.
