Philippines Urban Living Solutions, Inc. (PULS) is a leading owner, developer, and manager of purpose-built housing and accommodation solutions in the Philippines.
PULS’ founders, Mark Kooijman, Jelmer Ikink, and Steven Zwaan, established PULS in 2012 with an aim to create small communities (or “towns”) of young professionals near major centers of work with all the amenities, conveniences, and comforts that young professionals need.
The intention was to fill a gap in the real estate market that typically overlooked one of the largest population demographics in Metro Manila; the young urban professional. Given the absence of affordable accommodation in close proximity to major central business districts, young professionals did not have a choice but to commute for 3-4 hours daily in cramped public transportation options.
After thorough due diligence into the market, which included surveying 1,200 young professionals and conducting dozens of sit-down interviews, the first project of PULS commenced in 2012 under the name “MyTown Paris.” High demand for this new product resulted in quick continued growth in this and other housing solutions.
Over the years, PULS has financed and developed projects ranging from for sale townhouses, to purpose-built co-living dormitories, to mixed-use live-work-play projects, and continues to diversify its portfolio with hotel accommodation, ecommerce fulfillment centers, and micro-office solutions.
PULS takes pride in elevating the lives of the Filipino workforce and providing high quality living concepts.
