The perks of living in destination estates

Published Oct 08, 2021 5:45 pm

Pandemic or not, convenience is the main reason for choosing where to live. And this is exactly what destination estates offer—a place where everything’s literally within their grasp: no commutes, no traffic, just you enjoying a stroll going to where you need to be. 

If you’re one of the many urbanites who wish that you live in the heart of the action, here’s a rundown of locations you might consider.

What is a destination estate? 

Destination estates can equate to a “city within a city.” Properties within this enclave consist of residential, commercial, offices and even recreational buildings that are strategically placed to create a community within a city. 

There are plenty of destination estate properties here in Metro Manila, where people enjoy a convenient lifestyle that is raised a notch higher. How can it improve the way you live? 

Live productively by saving time and money 

Being neighbors with a mall and an office building means not waking up early to brave an hour or more in traffic just to get to your workplace. Plus, there’s no need to add transport and fuel fees to your budget because you can simply walk to get there. With this considerable amount of time and money savings, you have more time for yourself. 

Say goodbye to stress caused by traffic 

Metro Manila and traffic is a combination that simply causes us a lot of stress—and this stays true even today that we’re in the middle of the pandemic. But for people who live in destination estates, this is no sweat. The convenient connectivity of your home to office buildings and commercial establishments gives you the chance to avoid the terrible traffic problems during rush hour.

This walkable lifestyle is offered by The Sapphire Bloc to its residents—you walk your way to the nearby office building, and enjoy the close distance between the condo and Robinsons Galleria.

Achieve peace of mind 

You can feel safe living in a destination estate like the Magnolia Residences in New Manila, which is integrated within the Robinsons Magnolia complex. There’s no need to worry about where and how you can get your essentials: for those working, your exposure to people will be reduced since there’s no need for you to travel far.

With the mall just a few minutes away from your home, you can shop at your own time and drop by to buy your essentials at your convenience. 

In Cebu, this convenient home life is made possible by Galleria Residences, a residential property situated within the Robinsons Galleria Cebu complex. This gives residents comfortable access to the Robinsons Galleria Cebu mall, Cybergate Galleria office building, and the Summit Galleria Hotel. 

Stay connected to life’s essentials 

Aside from the area’s malls and offices, destination estates are also located near hospitals, schools, and churches. While these might not be part of the complex, traveling to these establishments does not require you to travel for hours, as they are located near the property. 

Residents of The Magnolia Residences, for example, have convenient access to nearby healthcare facilities such as St. Luke’s Medical Center and Cardinal Santos Memorial Medical Center, and schools such as St. Paul University, Xavier School, and La Salle Greenhills. As for the homeowners of Galleria Residences Cebu, medical buildings like Sacred Heart Hospital and Chong Hua Hospital, as well as schools like the University of San Carlos and University of Cebu Main Campus, are just a few kilometers away. 

If this is the life you’ve wanted to experience for you and your family, then it’s time for you to check out these properties. For more information and updates, visit or follow RLC Residences on Facebook and Instagram.
