Long before mercantilism hit this city and commercial establishments and properties flourished, there are various explanations as to how Parañaque City got its name. One such story stated that long ago, at the mouth of what is now known as the Parañaque River, there stood a balete tree that, when viewed from afar, looked like a regal ship. This earned it the name Palanyag, taken from the term ‘palayag’, which means “point of navigation”. Another version of the story told, before the Spanish colonists came to the Philippines, there were some natives who lived close to the Manila Bay whose main livelihood was fishing or paglalayag. The commercial properties for rent in Parañaque are close to important establishments, landmarks, and major thoroughfares which is ideal for any business owner to start a company in the city.
