Ensuring convenience and accessibility is a promise that Sta. Lucia Land Inc. takes to heart.
Creating masterplanned livable communities for decades now, this trusted developer has always been at the forefront of providing modern, convenient lifestyle not only to its residents, but also to the valued customers of its mall and office, as well as the public.
Proof of this is the recent opening and blessing of the Sta. Lucia Mall Link, which provides the commuting public direct access from the LRT-2 Marikina-Pasig Station to its office spaces and the Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall.
A retail pioneer in the Pasig-Cainta area, the Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall has long given residents in the eastern corridor of the metro access to a convenient and safe shopping experience. The opening of the direct link is thus expected to further provide mallgoers and commuters a safer way to reach their destination.
“It is my honor and privilege to welcome all of you to the blessing of the Sta. Lucia Mall Link. This is a showcase of how the good working relationship between the government and private sectors benefits the commuting public better,” said Rose Santos, Sta. Lucia Land VP for commercial business.
Gracing the blessing of the Sta. Lucia Mall Link and the ribbon-cutting ceremony were Light Rail Transit Authority Administrator Atty. Hernando T. Cabrera, Transportation Assistant Secretary Jorjette Aquino, and top officials of Sta. Lucia Land.
According to Cabrera, this event was quite special and personal to him as this was where he lived during his college years.
“I lived in the Ligaya area (in Pasig) when I was in college and the concept of computers was very new to me. But I first learned to use it at one of the computer shops here at the Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall. Thus, this is a truly memorable event for me,“ he said.
The LRT-2 covers 13 stations, spanning 17 kilometers from Rizal to Manila, and has two subconnection stations in Cubao, Quezon City for MRT-3, and in Recto, Manila for LRT 1. LRT-2 currently serves some 30,000 commuters daily. Plans are also currently underway to build more LRT stations in Paranaque and Manila.
