LRT-2 Extension to Benefit Empire East Highland City Residents

The 16.75-kilometer LRT Line 2 which runs from Recto Station in Manila up to Santolan Station in Marikina will soon have an extension towards the east. The 4-kilometer East Extension will add up two more stations: Marikina Station and Antipolo Station in Rizal. This infrastructure project will benefit thousands of commuters from the east side of Metro Manila, enhancing their mobility and providing them with more convenience.


This expanded connectivity will also have an impact in further accelerating the economic progress in the eastern cities of NCR such as Marikina and Pasig, as well as Antipolo and Cainta in Rizal. In fact, many businesses and real estate developers have already started to expand in the areas close to the LRT-2 East Extension—from shopping malls, retail establishments, office spaces and even residential developments. One of the most exciting residential communities to rise in the area, which is also the grandest in scale, is the 24-hectare Empire East Highland City by real estate game-changer Empire East.


This sustainable township is just two kilometers away from the LRT-2 Marikina Station, which is right beside Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall at the corner of Felix Avenue and Marcos Highway. Its close proximity to the train station will provide its future residents an advantage in reaching key destinations in Metro Manila at a faster travel time.


Young students can safely ride the railway system and arrive at their schools with no hassle. Alighting at Katipunan Station are the college students of the University of the Philippines Diliman, Ateneo de Manila University, Miriam College, and other business schools, while Recto and Legarda Stations will easily lead to the renowned “university belt” in the City of Manila, namely University of the East, Far Eastern University, University of Santo Tomas, San Sebastian College, San Beda University, La Consolacion College, and the long list goes on. The terminal station in Recto also connects to LRT Line 1 where students can easily transfer and proceed to other prestigious schools in Intramuros and Taft Avenue.


Urban professionals who will be residing at Empire East Highland City will also benefit a lot with the LRT-2 East Extension as the train system leads to various offices and workplaces. Its current link to MRT-3 via Araneta City Station and future connection to the upcoming Mega Manila Subway via Anonas Station will make traveling to the central business districts of Ortigas, Makati and Bonifacio Global City easier.


While there are numerous shopping malls and leisure hubs along the stretch of LRT-2, you will have your own luxurious lifestyle mall right at Empire East Highland City. The Highland Mall, to be managed by Megaworld Lifestyle Malls, will be hosting 58,000 square meters of space for restaurants, retail shops, supermarket, and cinemas. Right in front of it along Felix Avenue is the 8,000-square-meter Highland Park set to become an elevated green park filled with sprawling greeneries, water features, open spaces, walking trails, al fresco dining outlets, a quick-service restaurant and a parish church. Highland Mall and Highland Park will definitely become an anticipated leisure destination in Pasig-Cainta area.


Furthermore, with LRT-2’s expansion operating this year, real estate property values are expected to appreciate in the coming years. It is not only the selling prices that will increase, but there will also surely be a stronger leasing or rental potential in the area—so today is the best time to invest for real estate such as condominium properties. Empire East Highland City now offers executive studios and one-to-two-bedroom suites in the first two towers of the initial phase Arcadia at Highland Residences. You can take advantage of the affordable pre-selling price as well as the current promo discounts and flexible payment terms. Moreover, in the middle of the soaring towers of Highland Residences will rise The Chartered Club, an exclusive recreational zone where member-residents can enjoy top-rate sports facilities and amenities. This feature will add more value to your residential property in the future.
