First Baron Residences - LOCATION
This property’s location is at 191 Wilson St., San Juan City. Usually, if we mention the place of San Juan – the first thing that most likely will come to our mind is the Greenhills Shopping Center- a long-standing, ultimate shopping venue for bargain finds. Remember the eternal “tiangges” here? Or maybe the popular school, La Salle Greenhills. Whatever it is – this city has potentials and in fact, has a lot of corporate offices so working in this part of the metro is also a good idea.
For medical care, nothing beats the Cardinal Santos Medical Center that is a short minute drive away. Or maybe you can go to nearby San Juan Medical Center. There are also good hospitals like UERM and St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City or The Medical City in the other side, Pasig City. Whichever you prefer – you are in a good location in so far as reputable institutions are concerned. You have a number of choices.
Since education is the parents’ top priority – know that various good schools are located in the area as well as neighboring areas like La Salle Greenhills, Immaculate Conception Academy, Xavier School, OB Montessori Greenhills, Aquinas, St. Johns Academy, POVEDA Learning Center, Center for Asian Culinary Studies and the University of Asia and Pacific, to name a few.
Retail therapy is at its best here. Aside from the bargain hunting adventures you can do at the Greenhills Shopping Center – there are the big malls to contend with nearby like Robinson’s Galleria, The Podium, SM Megamall and Shangri-La Plaza. Or you can easily go to UNIMART for your daily or weekly staples, as this supermarket is complete and not lacking in the essential home items.
For spiritual needs, there are a lot of Catholic Churches within the Greenhills area, like the Sanctuario de San Jose and Mary the Queen Parish. Other churches of other denominations include the Greenhills Christian Fellowship, which is also within the area. There are also Catholic churches in nearby Ortigas – the Church of EDSA in nearby Robinson’s Galleria or The Christ The King Church in the Corinthian Gardens area in Quezon City.
Greenhills or San Juan is also a place for foodies – there a lot of varied dining options you can choose from – be it casual, fine-dining or local Filipino dining like that of notable Filipino restaurants Café Ysabel and Chef Laudico Guevarra’s; others are Gloria Maris, Crystal Jade Restaurant and other good Chinese and Japanese restaurants around the area. There are also coffee and dessert shops around if you want to down all the food you’ve eaten and have a good nightcap with family and friends.
This area is definitely an ideal location because it is in-between major cities like Quezon City, Pasig City, Makati City and Bonifacio Global City. Major thoroughfares are easily passable and accessible from this place. There is also less minutes of commute and traffic for you if you go to and from these places so that’s better. Even the local and international airports can be accessed so easily so you will have stress-free travels. Public transportation is never a problem in this part of the metro, too.
