East Rembo is part of the cluster 5 of Makati City, Manila. It is in the same cluster as Pembo, Rizal and Comembo located in the east side. Unlike Bel-Air, East Rembo is primarily a suburban area and its name is an acronym for Riverside Enlisted Men’s Barrio. Obviously, East Rembo is one of the few selected barangays that were named after infantry unit of the Philippine Armed Forces during the 1950’s.
Built in 1956, East Rembo’s purpose was to give the enlisted servicemen of the Armed Forces a place to stay in Manila, particularly those who were assigned in Fort Bonifacio. What made East Rembo different from other barrios (e.g. Pembo, West Rembo, and Comembo) is that the barangay is capable of sustaining itself without reaching out to the Armed Forces administration for assistance.
The same bayanihan spirit is present in East Rembo. In fact, the barangay is the 2011 Most Child-Friendly Barangay awardee. So you can expect having a safe community and hospitable neighborhood while renting there.
Location of the Barangay
East Rembo’s street boundaries include 30th Avenue (south), 1st Avenue (north), Sitio 4 (west), and Riverside and 2nd-21st Avenue (east). The barangay is also close the Circumferential road (c-5) so you can get faster access to other places in Metro Manila like Libis, Quezon City and Eastwood.
• With the barangay’s close proximity to the Mater Dolorosa Parish, it couldn’t help that the barangay celebrates the feast of their patron saint, Mater Dolorosa, every 15th of September.
• Award-winning barangay – Recipient of multiple local awards like Most Pet and Child Friendly Barangay, 1st Place Cleanest and Greenest Place within cluster 3, Most Gender- Responsive Project Champion, 6th Place as Top Performing Barangay as per DILG’s criteria for judging 2013, among many notable recognitions.
With that, East Rembo does sound like an ideal place to live in. It all embodies characteristics that you would look for in a good residential area like close family ties, religiosity, mutual respect to its community members, and bayanihan.
