Gretchen spoke about how she constantly stays hungry and passionate. She shared how she rose from being a volleyball superstar to having her own career on camera, as well as finding ways to still build her own businesses and advocacies on the side. Nico, on the other hand, shared how he stays positive in spite of challenges and adversities. He also opened up about his passion for content creation, as well as his successful private ventures into agriculture and farming.

Just like Gretchen and Nico, anyone can live a life of success in Metrotowne. PHINMA Properties  President and CEO, Raphael Felix shared, “Earning your place in the world comes easier if you come from a place that helps cultivates your drive to succeed. Metrotowne is not just any mid-rise, it is a home meant to help a person rise.”

This is because Metrotowne was created by a group of perfectionists who wanted to create a safe haven that was close to everything important such as schools, hospitals and business establishments. Where people have the space to be creative, and the space to secure a life of leisure. It is a 2.1-hectare development with five 15-story residential buildings designed in a modern-contemporary way. It offers 24-sqm studios as well as 48-sqm 2-bedroom units, with indoor and outdoor amenities for recreation and entertainment.
