Density is the turbine of urbanization. It concentrates capital, generates wealth and yet when not properly managed density impedes the emergence of a well-functioning urban community. Manilaâ€™s population of 15 million occupies the 14th densest urban region in the world. As such, to live comfortably in Metro Manila is to learn to live in close proximity with one‘s neighbors. Portico represents a groundbreaking concept for how to establish a livable residential district in the middle of the city. It is mixed-used, it is pedestrian-friendly, it has open spaces for a wide range of activities and it is architecturally diverse, offering residents the possibility of living in towers with panoramic views of the Ortigas skyline or in town houses clustered around private courtyards.
