Veterans Village, (PSGC: 137404130) more commonly known as Project 7 and Muñoz, is a barangay located in Quezon City with an approximate land area of 51.941 hectares (128.35 acres) bounded by Barangay San Antonio in the Southwest, Roosevelt Avenue in the West, Barangay Bungad in the Southeast and EDSA in the North.
Other neighboring barangays include Bahay Toro, Katipunan, Sto, Cristo, Alicia, Paltok, Phil-Am, Del Monte and Bagong Pag-Asa under the first Legislative district.
The People's Homesite and Housing Corporation played a major role in the development of Quezon City after the city's inauguration as the nation's Capital on October 22, 1949. It was responsible for the development of the 1,572-hectare land purchased as early as 1938 belonging to the Diliman Estate of the Tuason family. Construction of the Roxas Homesite (originally called Project One) along Diliman creek commenced the series of in-city housing projects namely: Quirino District (Projects 2, 3, and 4); Magsaysay District (Project 6), with the very first “Newsmen row” in the country; Bagong Pag-asa, which was the first informal settlers’ resettlement area; Veterans Village (Project 7); and Toro Hills Homesite (Project 8).
From the original land appropriated to Project 7, PHHC decided to split the area into North Bago Bantay and South Bago Bantay. The northern portion is now Barangay Ramon Magsaysay while the southern part officially becomes Veterans Village after a Quezon City resolution was passed in 1956.
After the completion of SM City North EDSA as the country's first SM Supermall, the area has developed into a commercial strip of office buildings, car dealerships, a community-based mall, an LRT station and transport hub for commuters going to and from Northern Quezon City, CaMaNava and Bulacan areas.
Notable landmarks (mostly along Dangay Street) include the St. Peter Corporate Center, WalterMart North Edsa mall and corporate offices, Cityland's North Residences Condominium, Panorama Development Corporation's Panorama Technocenter Building, Robinsons Land Corporation-Roxaco Vanguard Hotel Corporation' Go Hotels North Edsa, Eurotel North Edsa, Muñoz Market, Congressional Arcade, North Metro Hotel Apartelle, Chut's Badminton and Sports Center and service stations of Shell, UniOil, Phoenix Petroleum and PTT.
Some private schools have been established in the vicinity such as St. Augustine School of Nursing, Our Lady of Montichiari School, Castle Ville Academy, Hope Christian Academy as well as government-run Esteban Abada Elementary School and Lukresia Kasilag Senior High School.
A Maynilad joint sewage and septage treatment plant has been in operation at the corner of Road A and Anahaw Extension since October 18, 2013.
