Leading developer of innovative staff housing solutions, Philippines Urban Living Solutions (PULS) Inc., where SM Investments Corp. (SMIC) has an equity, broke ground on its largest building to date, envisioned to house over 1,000 beds, green spaces and never-before-seen amenities.
The 7-story dorm, MyTown Los Angeles, is set to rise along Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City, going to C5, located just a few minutes walk from Uptown. Moreover, the building is positioned alongside the BGC — Ortigas Link Bridge set for completion by end-2019.
As it stands visibly in the UpTown area along 8th Avenue, MyTown Los Angeles is expected to become a landmark in this part of BGC and to open by 2020.
“Location is key as we’ll bring much-needed MyTown co-living spaces to Uptown with this project. Moreover, the building is less than 15 minutes away from Makati CBD, 10 minutes from Ortigas and other MyTown buildings are just a 2 to 5-minute walk from MyTown Los Angeles,” says Mark Kooijman, CEO of PULS.
“We’ve continued to innovate on our product, and that’ll really show at MyTown Los Angeles. This project brings location, an ecosystem for people to live, work and play, and modern facilities and amenities together while giving our tenants the familiar overall MyTown experience. This is one of our most exciting projects yet,” says Jelmer Ikink, group director of PULS.
To date, Philippines Urban Living Solutions (PULS) Inc. has already 16 dormitories in the metro that cater to the BGC and Makati market.
