Living within the greenest urban estate in the metro

By AUDRIE JULIENNE BERNAS Published Sep 18, 2022 4:50 am

The fast-paced lifestyle in the city can be the most ideal for those who are working in the metro. But some also seek greenery and wide, open, and walkable spaces while enjoying proximity to the city center.

Developers Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) and LT Group, Inc. (LTG) partnered to provide working Filipinos the best of both worlds—a balanced and improved life in the city and a greener way of living within the enclaves of Parklinks.

A 110-meter long and 25-meter wide iconic bridge is designed to link Quezon City and Pasig over the Marikina river. This will create a new route that will help ease vehicular traffic in the northeast and east of Metro Manila. The bridge will have dedicated lanes for bikers and pedestrians, allowing a safe and convenient commute within and around the development.
An urban oasis

This 35-hectare joint venture between ALI and LTG is located within Pasig and Quezon City. Parklinks provides parks and generous open spaces for people who wish to incorporate green living into their lifestyle. Accessible via C5, Amang Rodriguez Ave., and Ortigas Avenue, and in close proximity to central business districts such as Makati, Bonifacio Global City, and Ortigas Center, reaching Parklinks will be a breeze for residents of the estate. Spanning two cities, the estate’s road network will improve access to and from both locations.

Where nature meets the modern city

One of Parklinks’ notable features are the five-minute walks in between residential and commercial buildings through an innovated walkway system that connects the mixed-use development. Fifty percent of the 35-hectare land is devoted to open spaces. The estate’s master plan includes a three-hectare park located at the heart of the estate with an esplanade, river park terraces, running and bike trails, and riparian gardens. Not only will it highlight the natural topography of the estate, these facilities will also encourage the community to appreciate the river system around Parklinks.

An architectural landmark

The Parklinks Bridge will be the estate’s most iconic feature. Linking Quezon City and Pasig, it is 110 meters long and 25 meters wide, with an arch of 40 meters in height. This bridge will create a new route to help ease traffic in the northeast and east of the metro. It also has dedicated lanes for bikes and pedestrians, complete with lighting. Now you can enjoy a peaceful stroll or drive without the hassle of going head-to-head with vehicles.

A life of wellness

Thoughtfully designed, Parklinks will provide the amenities and opportunities for a more holistic and convenient lifestyle. Dining and retail establishments, social spaces, outdoor entertainment, and parks are all within reach to promote your well-being.

Noteworthy are the parks lined with restaurants, multipurpose lawns, eco-walks, and view decks along the Marikina River within the estate.

A complete community

Within this community will rise the Parklinks North Tower, the first luxury residential development along C5. Alveo’s The Lattice will also be developed within Parklinks.

LTG and ALI deem this development as their greenest urban development to date. The plan includes a 3-hectare central park located at the heart of the business district. (Artist’s Perspective)

The Parklinks lifestyle mall is also set to open and will serve as the community’s centerpiece for convergence. Situated along the estate’s C5 frontage, the mall will feature retail, dining, and entertainment options.

Balanced lifestyle

Parklinks will promote a more balanced lifestyle: seamless access to and from commercial and office areas complemented by nature.

Parklinks will be a testament that green living within the metro is still achievable.
