Any real estate professional will tell you that the single most important factor that drives value appreciation of a property is location. It is also its biggest selling point. Home seekers want to know: Is the property along a national road? Is it close to transport hubs? Does it have proximity to retail stores, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment centers? Are there reputable schools, hospitals, and churches a short ride away? Does it have access to green spaces and nature views?
Most trusted home builders are well aware of the pivotal role that location plays in selling houses and condominium units. This is why apart from building their projects within driving distance or easy commutes to key lifestyle destinations, BRIA Homes considers its future residents’ proximity to neighboring towns and cities, especially to the metropolis and its suburban neighborhoods.
Affordable House and Lots
And of late, BRIA is building well-designed, value-for-money homes in communities across the Philippines that not only boast vital facilities such as power, water, digital, and telcom providers but also significant infrastructure projects in the works.
BRIA Homes Division Head Eduardo T. Aguilar affirms this, saying, “We know that the government’s ongoing infrastructure projects not only benefit real estate properties through value appreciation, but also spur the economic growth of a place. Accessibility opens doors to multiple opportunities in tourism, manufacturing, business, etc. With time as a valuable asset, we want BRIA homeowners to savor their proximity to everything that makes daily life easy and convenient.”
The North-South-Commuter Railway (NSCR) is one such project that is set to provide these advantages to residents in many BRIA developments such as those in Pampanga, Bulacan, Tarlac, and Laguna.
Also known as the Clark-Calamba Railway, the NSCR is a 148-kilometer urban rail transit system that will link the metro to New Clark City in the north and to Calamba in the south via Tutuban, Malolos, Clark, and its 36 stations. To optimize its potential as a convenient way to get around, the NSCR will be integrated into existing and future railway lines in the Philippines—LRT Line 1, LRT Line 2, MRT Line 3, and the upcoming Metro Manila Subway.
Designed to improve connectivity within the region, provide more sustainable transportation, and reduce commuters’ travel time, the NSCR project is divided into two phases: Phase 1 (Tutuban to Malolos) and Phase 2 (Malolos to Clark Railway and Solis to Calamba). Phase 1 will span 38 kilometers of viaduct/bridges, two river railway bridges, and 10 rail stations, while Phase 2 will offer 53 kilometers of viaduct/bridges, 45 long span bridges, three kilometers of tunnels, and underground structures, and 25 rail stations.
Both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the NSCR project are aimed at alleviating traffic congestion, cutting transport costs, spurring economic activity, and encouraging a population shift from the capital to regions further north.
NSCR Phase 1 is on track to be partially operational this year, while Phase 2 will be partially operational by the second quarter of 2023. Both phases are set to be fully operational by 2024.
Once completed, the NSCR project will benefit residents in several BRIA properties such as BRIA Homes Executive Calamba, BRIA Homes Calamba, BRIA Homes Alaminos, BRIA Homes San Pablo, BRIA Homes Sta. Cruz, BRIA Homes Sta. Maria, BRIA Homes Plaridel, BRIA Homes Norzagaray, BRIA Homes Mariveles, BRIA Homes San Jose del Monte, BRIA Homes Paniqui, BRIA Homes San Fernando, and BRIA Homes Magalang.
“The NSCR will not only make road trips faster and easier; it will bolster economic progress in these provinces,” Aguilar enthuses.
Besides touting strategic location in areas primed for economic advancement, BRIA Homes’ residential projects feature modern recreational and security facilities, cozy and well-built house-and-lot and condominium units, and efficient property management.
