MIDTOWN MODERN AMENITIES
Midtown Modern Amenities – What comes to mind when you think of living in the city? It is natural to associate city living with dull and boring concrete buildings, deprived of greenery and nature. In addition, people may relate city living to be far away from essential amenities such as schools, supermarkets, and children’s playground. We often have the impression that the city only comes to life during working hours and then ceases to exude life after work.
However, all this is changing as GuocoLand debuts Midtown Modern – an innovative concept of natural resort living in the city.
