Quezon City has always been one of the cities in Metro Manila teeming with opportunities for the upwardly mobile Filipino. In the northern part of QC, we find Fairview, a budding growth area where new homeowners can find a place to settle and, for would-be investors, a place to invest in. If you’re looking for a condo in Quezon City, Avida’s ready-for-occupancy project, Avida Towers Astrea in Fairview could just be the best choice for condo living in that area. It’s near Commonwealth, a major arterial road that leads to Quezon City Memorial Circle Road.
Here are four more advantages of living in Northern Quezon City:
It has the right balance of suburban relaxation and commercial intensity. Fairview is a happy medium between the laidback attitude of Alabang and the hectic pace of Makati. It provides a respite from work, but still close enough for the intrepid worker to get to their offices. After all, Quezon City is a busy work destination as well.
This is attractive to condo owners who also work; they can be away from work but, at the same time, still be within easy reach. The location of Avida Towers Astrea allows them to do exactly that.
And with the future completion of MRT-7, going to and from Metro Manila’s business districts will be relatively easier. Since the MRT-7 will be linked to the MRT-3 terminal in Trinoma, the commute from Fairview to any CBD in Metro Manila will be quicker and more convenient.
In the meantime, Fairview is made accessible from Paranaque and Muntinlupa by public buses that ply the Fairview-Alabang route. There are also jeepneys with shorter routes that can carry passengers to several MRT and LRT stations.

It is close to several top colleges and universities. Perhaps unknown to many, Fairview has a great college town atmosphere. A short drive away from Fairview are the campuses of FEU-NRMF School of Medicine and Colegio de San Agustin in San Jose del Monte. Within the proximity are University of the Philippines, Diliman, Ateneo De Manila University, and Miriam College, some of the best schools in the country.
Because of Fairview’s convenient location, condo owners have the option to rent out their units to students coming from all over the Philippines. With only a couple of months break (when school lets out), occupancy can be expected 80 percent of the year, ensuring a good source of income for condo owners.
It is in the midst of an urbanization boom. The Fairview and Commonwealth areas are slowly growing into their own. It’s becoming a bit more upscale and trendy, but at the same time still maintaining that school-town vibe. The Fairview Terraces, a mixed-use development with a sleek mall and dynamic BPO offices, amps up the commercial activity in the area.
It is home to several food parks. In the Commonwealth area, there is strEAT Food Park where gourmands can find excellent Thai, Korean, Mexican and Japanese dishes. Chiebog Food Park, in North Fairview, is a recent addition to the food park craze that has a retro arcade vibe. Along Visayas Ave. is Grub Hub, a hip and trendy food park. The Ark Food Park on Bristol St. is a huge collection of eclectic restaurants that are sure to satisfy any craving. Other food parks to try are Backyard Food Park and Pazar Events Space and Food Hub.
Relatively close to the area is the famous Maginhawa street, a hotbed of some of the best new restaurants and cafes found anywhere in the Philippines. There you can find the dazzling Rainbow Dreams Cafe—more popularly known as the unicorn cafe—with of some the best tasting confections this side of Manila.
