Is Township Living for You? Empire East Shares Five Questions to Ask Yourself to Find Out

A growing middle-class market means townships are sought-after, now more than ever. But what is the township concept?


Townships are self-contained developments where people have the space to live, work, and play—all in one neighborhood. The ultimate goal is to make it easier for residents to achieve work-life balance without having to shuttle from one place to another.


With townships spreading across the country, such as in places like Antipolo, Iloilo, Mactan in Cebu, and San Fernando in Pampanga, people need not relocate to megacities to enjoy modern living, effectively decongesting the Metro.


Know if the township lifestyle is right for you by asking these questions.


Do you keep a hectic schedule and want to experience a change of pace?

Empire East is developing 37 residential towers within a sprawling 22-hectare township called Empire East Highland City, along Felix Avenue in the convergence of Pasig City and Cainta, Rizal, one of the fastest growing communities in the country. It will be equidistant to two major thoroughfares—Marcos Highway in the North and Ortigas Avenue Extension in the South. Living in Pasig-Cainta means shifting to a slower, more leisurely pace and being away from the hustle and bustle of huge central business districts like Makati or Ortigas yet maintains accessibility to these hubs.


Are you ready for your first shot at independence?

If one of your short-term goals is to live on your own, Empire East Highland City will have 37 residential towers spread out across the 22-hectare township. With its shared amenities, 24/7 security, and minimal maintenance required, living in a condo is a great way to start your journey into adulting.


Does having everything you need right outside your doorstep excite you?

The appeal of a township lifestyle is that all the requisites of urban living are in one location. Apart from the residential towers, residents can look forward to Highland Mall, which will offer around 58,000 square meters of retail spaces, along with the luxury of living in the first elevated city in the country.


There’s also Highland Park, an 8,000-square meter green and open park, which will house some retail areas and a 500-seating capacity church. The park will be the focal point of the township; on both sides of the park will be a six-lane road, which will serve as the main street entrance to Empire East Highland City. 


Being a mixed-use development, expect companies to set up shop as well, which means working close to home might not be a far-fetched idea.


Does the mere thought of traffic jams stress you out?

Empire East took into consideration the proximity of mass transport systems when selecting the location of the Empire East Highland City township development. With infrastructure projects nearby, traveling to and from Empire East Highland City will be even more convenient. Moreover, having lifestyle and entertainment options within means there’s no need to venture out and spend hours on the road on a payday Friday or a Saturday night.










Are you looking for ways to live a healthier and more active lifestyle?

Living in a township means everything is just a short distance away, which makes it conducive for walking. The abundance of open spaces means there’s room to bike, run, and enjoy the outdoors. Plus, condo amenities such as gym facilities and swimming pools will give you more reasons to be on the move.


If you’ve answered yes to all these questions, township living is definitely for you. All the comforts of urban living are well within your reach—and Empire East Highland City is the best place to be. To know more about Empire East Highland City, you may call 8810-3333, 0917- 8EMPIRE, or 0999- 8EMPIRE, send a message to inquiry@empire-east.com, visit www.empire-east.com, and like and follow @empireeast and @empireeasthighlandcity on Facebook and Instagram!
