St. Francis Shangri-La Place - LOCATION
St. Francis Shangri-La Place is located at Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City
The prime selling point of the Shangri-La Place is its excellent location. Saying that the twin towers are in an accessible location is an understatement. If you look outside the window of your unit, you will actually see all of the facilities that you will ever want or need. For instance, if you are worried about your access to good medical facilities, you just need to take a short, five-minute cab ride. This will let you reach the Capitol Medical Center, which is one of the best medical hospitals in the country. If you search the area a bit more, you will find that there are dozens of other small hospitals and clinics in the area where you can get any kind of medical procedure.
Schools are also not a problem when you live in the Ortigas CBD. Just a couple of minutes away, you will find the Saint Pedro Poveda College and the Lourdes School of Mandaluyong. A bit further away, just around ten minutes or so far from the twin towers, in the neighboring city of San Juan, you will find the Greenhills campus of De La Salle University. You will never be in want of choices when it comes to educational institutions when you live in the Shangri-La Place.
Of course, the main reason why people want to live in Ortigas is because they want to live close to their offices and the best commercial destinations in the metro. Regarding work, literally hundreds of companies call the Ortigas complex their home. If you are working in any of them, then living in the Shangri-La Place will be most advantageous. You no longer have to trudge through the horrible traffic that has always been a permanent fixture in Metro Manila. You can take your time getting ready in the morning. You also have the option to walk from your home to your office building.
Regarding shopping centers, you will never be at a loss when it comes to options. If you are looking for great bargains, you can go to the nearby St. Francis Square. Here, you will find bargain basement prices on all kinds of clothes, furniture, appliances, and many more. If, on the other hand, this is still not enough for you, you just need to cross the street and you will reach SM Megamall, one of the largest and most prestigious shopping centers in the metropolis. If your shopaholic nature is still unsatisfied, you can go to Robinson’s Galleria, The Shangri-La Mall, or the Greenhills Shopping Center, all of which are just minutes away from the twin towers.
Even if you do not have a car of your own, it is still relatively easy to travel within the Ortigas complex and to the neighboring cities. For one thing, the entire CBD is compressed into a small patch of land, so you can just walk wherever you want to go, and in case you want to travel a bit further away, you have direct access to the MRT Shaw Avenue Station via the Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
