Space EDSA. Redefining Dormitory Through Shared Economy

Space EDSA brings back the fun and convenience in living in the Metro

I remember back in college, I've joined a youth org which led me to learned about friendship built at dormitories in Manila areas. I actually wanted to experienced living in a dormitory back then. Yes! ..didn't happen. I live in Taguig while my school was in Mandaluyong. So no need. haha! 

Nowadays, the Metro Manila traffic is getting worst. Travel duration plus work hours equals what's left with your time? The solution is now get closer to where you work or where you study.

When you spend most of your time doing work – whether it’s in school or the office, the best reward waiting for you at the end of the day is a space you can call home. Unfortunately, nowadays, “home” means braving the rush hour and sitting for another 3 hours stuck in a traffic jam. Luckily for Pinoys, a convenient and affordable living solution awaits this 2016.

Built with the young, energetic and dynamic lifestyles of students and office workers in mind, Space EDSA is designed to help as much Filipinos to have the privilege to enjoy taking one ride or walk to work. The idea is to allow each Spacer to live near where they want to be.

“Here at Space EDSA, we understand the hassle of long and tiring commutes, especially after a whole day spent in school or the office. So, we want to provide Filipinos a space that they can call home but does not require them a time-consuming travel,” says Quinto Oreta, President.

This redefined dormitory living is located at 167 EDSA Mandaluyong City, at the third floor of Major Homes’ headquarters. 
At the moment, it has air-conditioned rooms for 4, 6, and 8 people priced at Php 4,200/month for each bed. Spacers can also enjoy the free use of common kitchenette, living and dining areas, free use of the gym 24/7, as well as electricity and water.

Aside from these, anyone can easily develop a sense of community and family among its Spacers with comfortable areas that one can share and enjoy round the clock.

“Ultimately, we want our Spacers to feel that they are living the life that they have always wanted to live,” adds Angela Manese, General Manager.

Be a Spacer!
