878 Espana - LOCATION
878 Espana Is located at G. Tolentino St., Sampaloc, Manila
The main selling point of the 878 Espana condominium is its exceptional location. The building sits right in the middle of the prestigious University Belt, right along Espana Avenue. This means residents can just walk to their schools, regardless of which one they are enrolled in. For instance, if your children studies in the University of Santo Tomas, they just need to cross Espana Avenue via the footbridge, of course, and they will reach the front lawn of the University in just five minutes. On the other hand, if your kids are enrolled in either Far Eastern University or at the University of the East, they just need to walk a couple of blocks towards Morayta Street for them to reach their destination. The total travel time will be around ten minutes of moderate walking.
Although the main reason why you decided to invest on a unit in 878 Espana is its proximity to the premier universities and colleges, it also has the added benefit of being near all of the necessary facilities that college students will need. For instance, there are plenty of restaurants and bistros surrounding the condominium building, so you can rest assured that your children will always have access to food. On the other hand, if they like to cook their own food, then there are several supermarket chains within walking distance of the main entrance of the condominium. There are also a couple of bookstores in the area so your kids will not have any trouble finding school supplies or reference materials for their studies.
Even though studies should be the top priority of college students, it is also important that they take a breather every once in a while so they will not get too stressed out. The great thing about living in 878 Espana is that it is not only near colleges and universities. It is also quite near a couple of shopping malls and other commercial establishments. For instance, you just need to walk to Morayta Street and continue walking to Recto Avenue to reach Ever Gotesco Manila Shopping Center. If you walk a bit further down Recto Avenue, you can expect to reach the Isetann Shopping Mall. Now, if you are looking for great bargains, then you can take a jeepney from Morayta Street that will take you to the famous Divisoria commercial area.
Speaking of transportation, if your kids do not have a car of their own, they can still get to where they need to go because there are plenty of jeepneys, taxis, buses, and other forms of public transportation that ply different routes. For instance, if they need to go to Quezon City, then they just need to hop on a jeepney or a taxi to get there within fifteen to thirty minutes.
A couple of years ago, Espana Avenue was notorious for being a flood-prone area. Now, however, thanks to the improvements done on the drainage system, flooding is a thing of the past. In addition, 878 Espana is built on a much higher ground, so even if there is a bit of flooding, you still have an assurance that the water will not reach the condominium.
