Vista Recto - LOCATION

Vista Recto (Orwell Heights) is located at 1896 C. M. Recto Avenue, Quiapo, Manila.

The Vista Recto development sits in one of the most enviable locations in a district that is situated in very the heart of Metro Manila. The market district of Quiapo, also known as ‘The Old Downtown of Manila’ has a relaxed, laid back atmosphere, making this quarter perfect for students.  The historical baroque style Quiapo Church, or the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene, is at the heart of this district, in front of Plaza Miranda the town square. This is the focal point for most of the district’s activities. Most of the year Quiapo is a quiet district, but once a year, during the Feast of the Black Nazarene, millions of devotees flock to Quiapo Church. In recent years, the Manila government has been spearheading the ‘Revitalize Manila’ project and the district of Quiapo was rehabilitated into pedestrian shopping arcades and bringing back a sense of pride in the old community.

Located not far from the Pasig River, Vista Recto will soar 36 storeys above street level, with Quezon Boulevard to the west and the city of Manila to the south of the building, giving residents spectacular views over the city and river. Views from the rooftop swimming pool and landscaped deck and common areas here will be spectacular. Vista Recto is also located within easy access to the business district as well as East Mendiola and Espana Boulevard. 

 The new Vista Recto development is of course built to cater to the students who attend the many universities and higher educational institutions in the area. Having a place to call home nearby means that students will spend less time commuting to and from school or sitting in traffic. This frees up their time to do what is important: getting to school on time every day, doing homework, completing assignments, catching up with friends and getting adequate rest for exams. So choosing a place to live is probably one of the most important considerations during the student years.
