The Leaf - LOCATION
The Leaf at the Timberland Heights by Filinvest, sits on the hilly part of Brgy. Gitnang Bayan II in the town of San Mateo, Province of Rizal. By far, the travel time from Metro Manila to San Mateo is only about 15 minutes. This makes The Leaf an accessible residential haven for most Metro Manila based executives because travel time is practically negligible.
San Mateo, is a first class town in the province of Rizal and it carries with it the tag of being the fastest growing municipality in the entire province of Rizal. Being the closest town to Quezon, Marikina and Pasig cities, urbanization in the metropolis has almost extended to this town. Construction boom added to the already flourishing commerce and industrialization in the town. The Leaf and the Timberland Heights, along with other township projects are proof of a stable and steadily rising economy of San Mateo. In this part of Rizal, zonal valuations of real properties increase as the years pass by. This is a good business indicator, perfect for investments as well.
Filinvest did its homework before deciding where to place its investment to have a great residential community. Deciding to construct a residential project in the hilly part of San Mateo took a lot of considerations. Luckily the place where The Leaf & the Timberland Heights are located is a strategic place.
Strategic location is a critical factor that mainly defines comfort and convenience for residents. This means that the basic needs of a household are within easy reach. It is a common knowledge in the past that newly constructed communities are isolated in some ways. They are situated in places where transportation and the basic needs are too far from reach. That was one of the stumbling blocks of old residential communities. Filinvest took that experience heavily and put it in the forefront of its considerations in building current projects.
The Leaf is truly located in a place where convenience and comfort – on top among other things, are fully considered. Here’s the list to consider:
