For the past several years, the southern and eastern areas surrounding Metro Manila have been rising as an alternative homebase to the increasingly bustling and crowded metropolis. Region IV-A, or more commonly known as Calabarzon, is comprised of the provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon. The largest province among these is Laguna, which is home to a number of cities that are emerging as highly urbanized areas offering modern, convenient living amid a nature-rich, suburban environment.
Among the most well-known cities in Laguna is Biñan, the third most populous with a little more than 400,000 residents as of the national census of 2020. Even before it was classified as a city in 2010, Biñan already exhibited great potential as a center of economic growth in the province. In 2007, it was declared the richest municipality in the entire Philippines by the Commission on Audit, citing its annual gross income of P677 million. Today, this stature is still evident with the continuing presence of large industrial estates and special economic zones involved in various manufacturing sectors.
With the wealth of employment and business opportunities in the area, it is no wonder that residential options have sprouted abundantly in the city as well. There are numerous property developments that offer a range of options, from affordable homes to mid-income and even upscale dwellings. Completing the everyday living experience in Biñan are sufficient support establishments such as malls, supermarkets, hospitals and schools. Transportation is convenient as the city is accessible along the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) through the Mamplasan, Southwoods and Carmona Exits. It will also be part of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) extension to Kawit.
With all these unrelenting and exciting activities in Biñan come a valuable opportunity to invest in real estate in the area, which is sure to increase in value even more over time. DataLand Inc. (DLI), the property development arm of quadruple-A contractor DDT Konstract Inc., is cognizant of this potential and has come up with a compelling real estate offering that not only serves as an ideal home in the city but a rewarding long-term investment.
MyCube is DLI’s innovative “condormitel” project that is a first in the region. The vertical development offers spacious units that owners can either reside in or lease out. For the latter, long-term lease is similar to that of a dorm that can accommodate more than one dweller, while short-term lease is similar to that of a hotel. The units’ flexibility and optimum use of space are a testament to the attention to detail of DLI, in line with its mission to provide Filipino home buyers quality beyond the basics.
Studio units begin at 20 square meters, which allow for a dorm set-up consisting of two single elevated beds with space below for a desk and other storage. Deluxe studio units, meanwhile, reach up to 35 square meters in size and can accommodate up to four similar single-bed configurations. Every unit has its own toilet and bath, as well as kitchen area, ensuring privacy, comfort and convenience of its occupants. Most importantly, the units boast of premium finishes of homogenous tile flooring, granite countertops, overhead and base kitchen cabinets, and complete bathroom and kitchen fixtures—definitely more than the usual found in other condominium developments.
Complementing daily life at MyCube is a host of amenities suited to the needs of today’s generation of urbanites, such as a gym, study hall, function room and a linear landscaped garden perfect for outdoor and fitness activities. MyCube is truly ideal for Biñan’s growing population of students, workers, employees and even starting-out families, as well as tourists, transients and visitors. Whether as a home or a rental property, a property at MyCube is an investment that will grow along with the progress of the locale.
