Situated at the Araneta Center in Quezon City, Manhattan Garden City stands out as the very first transit-oriented residential development project in the country. In fact, Manhattan Garden City was designed to seamlessly integrate with the city’s mass-transit system. Launched in 2006, Manhattan Garden City also stands as Megaworld’s share in the Quezon City government’s redevelopment plan for the once-glorious Araneta Center, the city’s premier commercial center back in the 60s and 70s.
The sprawling 5.7-hectare complex is also considered the largest single residential development in the country to date with a total of about 9,000 units upon completion. The complex features a 720-meter elevated garden walkway that connects the City’s 20 towers. Another first in Philippine real estate development, the walkway links the condominium complex to the Light Rail Transit 2 and Metro Rail Transit 3 systems, providing residents with easy access to trains bound for other parts of Metro Manila.
Still a work in progress, Manhattan Garden City is envisioned to revive the former glory of Araneta Center and transform it again into a popular family destination as it once was.
