Because the supply of land in Metro Manila is starting to dwindle, many home buyers are looking outside of the metropolis to buy properties.
“The lack of available space in Metro Manila is making the capital region’s fringe areas like Santa Rosa, Laguna more attractive to foreign investors. Investing in these fringe areas is becoming the logical choice, with their lower labor and electricity costs,” said Duane Santos, Greenfield Development Corp. (GDC) executive vice president and general manager.
Touted as the “Lion City of the South,” Santa Rosa is becoming host to world-class infrastructure, business process outsourcing offices, information technology centers, industrial areas, and high-end commercial and residential communities.
Tapping the economic potential at the frontiers of the metropolis, GDC is expanding its 400-hectare Greenfield City in Santa 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.
The south’s newest growth center, Greenfield City, is patterned after a park-living concept, putting a premium on open spaces and nature. Its residential park, the 30-hectare Pramana Residential Park, dedicates half of its space to tree-lined roads, playgrounds, manicured lawns, pocket parks and green buffer zones amid Zen-inspired homes and amenities.
Also rising in Greenfield City is Solen Residences, a 55-hecatre development that also offers green living spaces.
“Santa Rosa is set to be one of the country’s largest economic centers, and Greenfield Development aims to constantly be at the forefront of its development, so that it may move and inspire generations to come,” Santos said.
