Considered a “city within a city,” mixed-use communities combine housing with business hubs, shopping centers, and leisure amenities to create a community of their own. This tight-knit setting complemented with strategic location drive demand for condominiums in mixed-use communities, especially as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The global health crisis has brought to fore the benefits of living in mixed-used communities, where residents can easily access their essential needs and receive support from the community during challenging times,” said Margarita Saenz-Resurreccion, sales group head of Federal Land, Inc.
