The dwindling available areas for development and expansion in Metro Manila is making the capital region’s southern fringe areas ideal and more attractive to foreign and local investors including home buyers.

Ongoing “world-class” developments for residential and commercial areas in the Alabang to Sto.Tomas Batangas economic and leisure corridor have positioned the Southern Provinces of Laguna and Batangas to become the next lifestyle destination of Luzon.

In a statement Duane AX Santos EVP and GM of Greenfield Development Corporation, one of the leading township developers in Laguna province said that “investing in these fringe areas is becoming the logical choice, with their lower labor and electricity costs.”

Greenfield projects located in its vast landholdings in the perimeter area of South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) in Sta.Rosa, Laguna have started to change the areas landscape.

Touted as the “Lion City of the South”, Sta. Rosa is now home to world-class infrastructure, BPO offices, IT centers, industrial areas, and high-end commercial and residential communities.

In a recent market review by CB Richard Ellis, it was disclosed that at least 3,000 housing units are being sold every month in Metro Manila’s peripheral provinces and cities as growth potential for these areas continue to soar over the past year.

“The study revealed a strong demand for residential properties particularly for single detached houses continuous to grow as the monthly take-up of residential properties steadily increases in the CALABARZON (Region 4).

The presence of a very strong demand for residential units also shows that the residential market in regions outside the Metro has “still hasn’t reached its full potential” as it had been overlooked for quite some time, the CBRE research also disclosed.

New Growth Center

Tapping the economic potential at the frontiers of the metropolis, Greenfield Development Corporation for its part is expanding its 400 hectare Greenfield City in Sta. Rosa.

“Greenfield City is a self-sustaining network of residential, commercial, industrial and recreational communities, ideal for those who are looking for a refreshing shift in scenery and lifestyle outside of Metro Manila,” Santos said.

Greenfield City’s ongoing development is patterned after a park-living concept, putting a premium on open spaces and nature. Its residential park, the 30-hectare Pramana Residential Park and Solen Residences, a 55-hectare development “ that lets residents get away from the hustle and bustle of the city with its vibrant and green living spaces”.

The current developments in the area have brought skilled people living in Metro Manila’s southern outskirts to work with the rise of a new business district: the Santa Rosa Business Park and other office and commercial developments in the Sta.Rosa-Tagaytay stretch.

Greenfield City also boasts of its 65-hectare, PEZA registered Greenfield Auto Park, that caters to a variety of light industries ranging from automotive to telecommunications.

The township builder also offers its own leisure and shopping haven with Paseo de Sta. Rosa. The retail park offers a pedestrian-friendly atmosphere and an open-air, lush alternative to congested malls, featuring restaurants and outlet stores.

Through Greenfield City, Greenfield aims to take advantage of the country’s economic growth by fulfilling its commitment to nurture thriving communities for the future.

“Sta. Rosa is set to be one of the country’s largest economic centers, and Greenfield aims to constantly be at the forefront of its development, so that it may move and inspire generations to come,” Santos said.
