When I was still working in Makati, I see at least three MyTown buildings along Kalayaan Avenue on my work the office. It caught my attention and I wanted to know what they were for or what the business is about . because it doesn’t look like any dormitories that I know.
Just recently, I had a chance to get know MyTown and actually visit each room during the opening of it’s 14th building, MyTown Auckland.
During the event I got to meet the people behind Philippines Urban Living Solutions (PULS), the company that created MyTown. I also got to know the story behind the concrete and its foundation.
MyTown was launched in 2012 due to the market gap in affordable urban housing. From a survey of 1,200 respondents, MyTown learned that a huge amount of young professionals’ income goes to transportation. On top of the costs, they spend between three to nine full days per month on their daily commute, simply to get to work and earn an income.
Their unique approach to co-living spaces also provides a unique opportunity to corporates with offices in the business districts. This can be a selling point for corporates for candidates or employees who are looking for accommodations as part of the package or an accommodation for visitors or conferences. From transportation to training centers, serviced apartments to corporate social responsibility programs, and office leasing to travel arrangements, MyTown is a partner who thinks along with you to find the best package to make the housing needs of any employer work
MyTown has deluxe rooms, firsts class dorms, and serviced apartments.
- 4-bed and 6-bed sharing units are priced at a rate below the average professional’s cost of commute.
- 2-bed sharing rooms are an alternative to 2-3* hotel accommodation at only20-30% of the cost.
- A private rooms are priced at approximately 50% of the average studio in Bonifacio Global City.
MyTown provides more than just a bed for its tenants; our amenities allow tenants to spend their time working out in one of our gyms, studying in one of our study rooms, developing their skills during one of our personal / professional development classes, or simply relaxing by the roof deck pool, the cinema, or one of our many recreation areas.
If you are a resident of one of MyTown’s building you can freely enjoy the amenities of the rest of the buildings like the pool in MyTown New York (BGC). MyTown Auckland has a roof deck that also hosts an outdoor cinema.
I have colleagues who travels to and from Cavite, Pampanga, Laguna from work. I live in Pasig but sometimes it takes me three hours to get home from Makati. If I have known about MyTown before, I would have recommended it to them. I hope they put up their 15th building somewhere near Ortigas.
