Living near lifestyle establishments has become a necessity—here’s why

Remember when you were a kid, and you dreamed of being trapped in a mall so that you could play with all the toys you want? Now that you’re an adult, the idea seems absurd—but maybe it has evolved. Instead of dreaming of being trapped inside a mall, you’d want to live near it.

Before the pandemic that has been forcibly altering the way we live our lives, living within the vicinity of lifestyle establishments was a convenient way to avoid the frustrating traffic in the city. To describe a place of residence as something that is “walking distance to a mall” is synonymous to convenience, or more time for self-care as there are nearby spas, salons, barber shops, fitness centers, and the like.

This is the lifestyle Sonora Garden Residences aims to offer and so much more in Las Piñas City. With its location within the Robinsons Place Las Piñas complex in Alabang-Zapote Road, future residents of the three-building condominium development will certainly relish these perks of being just a few walks away from life’s essentials.

When the pandemic struck, the term convenience has taken on a different, dramatic meaning for many. Those who do not have cars suddenly found themselves having to walk (with heavy bags in tow) for endless minutes to get to the nearest supermarket for their weekly supplies. And then there’s the sudden run to the hardware store because you have a faulty faucet while staying home in the middle of the community quarantine.

Delivery services have been a big help but then nothing beats the convenience of having life’s essentials at your doorstep.

Even those who do own vehicles experience several challenges, too. Disinfecting your vehicle time and again can prove to be a daunting task if you have to do it several times a week. And since safety measures have become more stringent, waiting in line at the parking area may take several minutes, or hours. And the list goes on.

New Normal

Now, that we are in a state of new normal, living in a place near lifestyle areas like Sonora Garden Residences has become almost a necessity.

If you need to find and buy food, which is the most basic need, living beside the mixed-use development gives you access to restaurants, food establishments, fast food, cafes and breweries.

Soon Robinsons Place Las Piñas, the management said, will have more food choices and alfresco dining spaces for mallgoers to enjoy with family and friends.

And when you’re feeling more diligent in the kitchen, there’s always the mall supermarket, where you can buy all the ingredients for that latest food trend recipe you found on Youtube.

Sonora Garden Residences is designed to suit the demands of a multi-faceted lifestyle with approximately 70 percent of the 1.45-hectare land area devoted to open spaces and various resort-inspired amenities. (Artist’s illustration of the view from a unit’s balcony)

Then, there’s the aspect of indispensable security. If you’ve noticed, most residences that are near a mall, or are within the same compound as a mall, have extra layer of protection to ensure the safety of residents. So expect even more stringent security measures to be provided by the condo security.

You also won’t have to think of the hassle of traveling to the mall or think about where to park and parking fees. Living in Sonora Garden Residences means just walking to the mall, in open air, at your most convenient time of the day. Moreover, you can also bring your fur babies with you as Robinsons Place Las Piñas is a pet-friendly mall, too.

Time is also a consideration to many of us. We may still be under quarantine, but if you go out on any day of the week, traffic has started to lean on the heavy side with the movement of vehicles considerably slow.

With that in mind, if you got everything you need within walking distance, you won’t have to spend so much time inside a car. You can do more productive work, or spend more time with your family and loved ones. In this pandemic, quality time with the people who matter is important to keep our sanity intact.

On the investment side, a place that’s near a lifestyle establishment has bigger value in the market. And since places and locations like these are more and more in demand these days, the value of the property also has a high growth potential.

All these reasons and more make Sonora Garden Residences a worthy investment to consider.
