Marikina City is a top choice for investors to put up their warehouse due to the cheap land prices, effective zoning and proper waste disposal management. You can find a 2,000-square meter warehouse in Brgy. Concepcion Uno listed for Php66 million. In Malanday, a warehouse measuring 3,500-square meters on a 2,100-square meter land area is listed for Php80 million.

Many of the warehouse for sale in Marikina City are former shoe factories. In the 1990s, the footwear industry suffered a huge blow from the influx of imported shoes from China, Korea, Taiwan and other countries due to trade liberalization. Many shoe manufacturing businesses shut down and moved on to other business ventures.

Found along the eastern border of Metro Manila, Marikina serves as a gateway to Rizal and Quezon provinces via the Marikina-Infanta Highway. West of Marikina is Quezon City, to its south is Pasig and Cainta, to its north is San Mateo and east is Antipolo.

Dubbed as the “Shoe Capital of the Philippines”, Marikina is famous for its footwear industry which dates back to 1887 when Don Laureano “Kapitan Moy” Guevarra, a highborn and a community leader, bought a pair of imported shoes during one of his trips to Manila. The pair was studied and dissected in a bid to duplicate it and eventually start the city’s shoemaking industry.

 

Marikina’s humble beginnings

Buy a Warehouse in MarikinaMarikina was founded by the Jesuits in 1630 and initially called the area Jesus dela Pena or Jesus of the Rocks. The town was later on called Mariquina and the Hispanic q was eventually replaced with the vernacular k. In 1977, Marikina officially became part of the newly-created Metro Manila.

Today, the city has carved its niche in the shoemaking industry. Shoemakers come and go but the art of shoemaking lives on with the new breed of entrepreneurs who want to continue the legacy of Marikina. Of course, the “shoe capital” title will not be complete without a Guinness World Record-- that is for the world’s largest pair of shoes. And add to that a shoe museum showcasing thousands of shoes owned by former First Lady Imelda Marcos.

Marikina also preserved the ancestral house of Kapitan Moy to pay homage for his contributions to the city. The 200-year old structure was listed as a Historic Site and Structure by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) as the First Shoe Workshop in Marikina. It was also declared a National Shrine in 1968 by the town council and NHCP.
