Who wouldn’t dream to have a lovely home in the proximity of many commercial buildings, institutions, and entertainment complexes? Who would not want to have easy access to anything you need in just a minute walk or drive from the comfort of your home?

We, humans, always crave comfort. As we grow older, even though we love to hustle to create avenues for income and growth, we can’t change the fact that we won’t trade all of those for more time with our family, our room, our bed, our safe place. 

As we can see these days, there are so many rising developers that offer many different options of apartments, houses, and condominiums. Every one of them has its own marketing strategies to site the benefits of choosing their places. Many have already chosen Pasig City because of the green living it promotes. Makati is also a typical option for a lot of career opportunities. But do you know that you still have a lot of options? Quezon City for example, more specifically, Katipunan Avenue

It’s a good thing that the LRT Line 2 has a stop at Katipunan Avenue, so you won’t persist and disturb yourself by going through the EDSA traffic. Currently, LRT 2 has 11 stations in total, running from Santolan station in Marikina City to Recto Avenue in Manila. LRT-2’s Araneta Center-Cubao station connects with MRT-3’s Araneta Center-Cubao and the Recto station connects with LRT-1’s Doroteo Jose station.

These interconnected railways accessible from Katipunan Avenue provide a better alternative route if you’re commuting instead of using your personal cars. Of course, you still have to have the courage to be one of such a large number of people also riding the train. But, if you can prepare to travel at a not very rush hour, you can enjoy the convenience of the train system.
