Share on:

When you are looking for a condo for sale to call home for you and your loved ones, you really need to consider Muntinlupa City, the up-and-coming thriving city of NCR. It is an underestimated city that many consider a hidden precious gem.


Condo living entails the best of modern life. Living in the province specifically in a house with lawns and whatnots is indeed endearing, however, if you really want to be in the middle of the world’s and the country’s making - that is, its growth and improvement when it comes to everything new - one must be in the VIP seats of this grand change and race, if not actually be in the middle of it all. And a condo for sale provides just that kind of lifestyle. And when it comes to the Philippines, Muntinlupa, the Emerald City of our country, is one of the areas you absolutely must search for a condo for sale to call yours.

Muntinlupa, a city to thrive in

Located in the southernmost area of Metro Manila, beside the Laguna de Bay and just a few wiggles away from prominent provinces like Laguna and Cavite and prominent cities like Las Pinas through roadways such as the South Luzon Expressway and others, Muntinlupa has recently got the nickname of Emerald City of the Philippines. Being a highly urbanized city in the National Capital Region with many more in store, it has the boastful status of being the most competitive and improved city in our country in recent years. With over half a million people who are known to be sophisticated and disciplined, like the rare stone that is carefully earned through thorough polish and shaping, Muntinlupa and the Muntinlupa City Government, too, pride themselves to shape themselves to perfection.


Indeed, condo living is all about city life. You would definitely experience this in this high-class and refined city when you and your family move into a condo for sale here.

A quick run-through of the past

Officially known as the City of Muntinlupa, how the city got its name is quite amusing and interesting. The first Filipino settlers of this then-small barrio reportedly misunderstood the question the Spaniards were asking them. The Spaniards were asking the name of the land they were in but the residents replied “Monte sa Lupa”, thinking the colonizers were asking what card game they were playing. Additionally, the city’s name also has something to do with its topographical nature. The term “mountain”, or Monte, was lengthened to mountain land or in Tagalog, Muntinlupa.


After being bought by Quijano Bustamante under the Augustinian’s supervision which is all conservative and religious, infrastructure growth became this town’s main goal after the 1945’s World War especially when it was only known as an agricultural town. Under the reign of the then town mayor Francisco de Mesa, factories, business establishments, land farms that decorated the city 4,673 hectares wide, and many more residential areas, Muntinlupa started to catch up or even lead during the modernization times of the Philippines. As early as November 7, 1975, when the Metropolitan Manila Commission was created, this impressive city, very much worthy of emulation, was proclaimed as one of the cities and municipalities that proudly categorize itself to be in the compromise of Metro Manila.


Currently, this city holds the most reputable establishments and the biggest prime residential communities such as Filinvest City, Madrigal Business Center District, Ayala Alabang Village, Medical Center Muntinlupa, Asian Hospital and Medical Center, and of course, one of our favorite go-to malls a little bit outside of EDSA traffic, Alabang Town Center.


Let us dig deeper into that.

The Business One Stop Shop of the World

To further stress it out because it is really worth note taking, again, because of the progress of two large-scale commercial projects namely the Filinvest Corporate City and the Madrigal Business Park, from the cow pasture and plain greenery Muntinlupa once was, soon turned itself to one of the most superior cities in the Metro. It is so superior that it got international attention. Coined as the Business One Stop Shop,  the 2014 World Cities Summit in Singapore recognized Muntinlupa and the Muntinlupa City Government for their effectiveness in reducing the number of steps in acquiring a Business Permit. A very notable and helpful milestone and achievement for many other businesses around the world to emulate and take advantage of.


That is not the only business-related thing that is worth having your approval. There is an 18.7 hectare PETA registered zone solely for the purpose of all things Information Technology, called  Northgate Cyberzone, where numerous technology-based companies rely on such as education and learning firms, software design and multimedia, call centers, banking and finance services, e-commerce, and the like. Such businesses are Capital One Philippines Support Services Corp., Convergys Philipines, Corp., Verizon Business, and HSBC Electronic Data Processing Inc.


For over 40 years now, Muntinlupa has been the home of the Kawasaki Motors Philippines Corporation where Kawasaki Motors in the country are birthed from. Of course, everyone knows about Pepsi, and in this city, too, this famous drink is being distributed.

Whether we like it or not, our environment heavily affects not only the way we live life, but also us as people. This is why Muntinlupa will definitely help you get that glow up because there are a lot of pluses to getting from here. The five-story Muntinlupa Museum will definitely serve you and your family the most accurate and a mouthful of information and history. No need to rely on university libraries, your children can just have a nice leisurely stroll to have access to the Muntinlupa City Public Library to have a good read. When it comes to working out and everything recreation, this city definitely has a lot to serve with their 41 open basketball courts, 59 covered basketball courts, 14 billiard halls, 11 tennis courts, 11 parks and playgrounds, 10 swimming pools, 9 Dance/Slimming/Fitness centers, and 7 country clubs. Indeed, there is no excuse to be bored when you are in this city that just screams for self-growth and improvement.


Lastly, ask your children about Wanderland Music and Arts Festival. We are sure they have heard of it or even gone to one. This festival has been celebrating everything Filipino culture since 2017 every year. This prestigious and fun event gives spotlight to both international and local artists, and live art performances.


Indeed, Muntinlupa is one of the many cities in the Philippines that we must absolutely be proud of.
