Business relies on a good location to thrive. In this time of COVID-19, when movement is limited, many entrepreneurs are finding the wisdom of investing in budding communities that offer all the essentials especially now with quarantine restrictions in place.
Ayala Land estates offer this kind of convenience following its careful master-planning over the years that has enabled each estate to offer a balanced mix of residential, commercial, lifestyle components, and green open spaces that help communities and businesses grow.
One such estate is Ayala Land’s Vermosa, the property giant’s 725-hectare mixed-use estate in Cavite.
The estate is packed with commercial, industrial, and IT zones, presenting solid opportunities for anyone looking to enter that market.
In fact, locators at Vermosa already benefit from the young and active population surrounding Cavite towns and nearby Alabang not to mention about 500,000 workers the estate is expected to have once fully completed.
“The potential for growth in this area of Cavite continues to be unmistakable despite the impact of the pandemic to construction and development, but we are now back on track with the easing of quarantine guidelines,” said Ayala Land Estates AVP Cris Zuluaga.
“We maintain an optimistic view of the future of our estates as these are designed for the long term and are all grounded on sustainability,” added Zuluaga.
Nuvali, Ayala Land’s 2,290-hectare eco-city development spanning the cities of Sta. Rosa, Cabuyao and Calamba in Laguna, is rising to become CALABARZON’s regional growth center and is envisioned to become the next business and lifestyle district south of Makati.
With several business process outsourcing firms already located in Nuvali, Ayala Land continues to offer commercial lots for PEZA and non-PEZA locators in the estate. East Bloc, its upcoming commercial district, would be the perfect place to set up office buildings, hotels, condominiums, or other institutional facilities.
Nuvali also houses Lakeside Evozone, a 65-hectare commercial district which has already attracted multi-national customer solutions firms Concentrix and IBM. Retail and recreational facilities like Ayala Malls Solenad, Seda Hotel and The Monochrome Events Place are also rooted within the district.
Another budding Ayala Land estate is Arca South, a 74-hectare mixed-use estate that has been set up for success given its proximity to Makati and Bonifacio Global City. Investors would do well to invest in Arca South as early as now, since prices are bound to appreciate the same way other Ayala Land properties have. Looking at Bonifacio Global City, land values have shown a 17-percent compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) since 2003, while land values in Makati CBD have shown a CAGR of 14 percent since 1994.
Another notable estate is Alviera, in partnership with Leonio Land — a 1,800-hectare urban development in Pampanga intertwined with the natural features and views of Porac. Located just five minutes from the SCTEx Porac exit, 20 minutes from the Clark International Airport, 45 minutes from the Subic Freeport and 1.5-hour drive from Manila, Alviera offers a strategic location for multi-national and regional businesses looking to take advantage of emerging economies in the Central and North Luzon regions — without going too far away from the metro.
Alviera has an East Commercial Center, where lot owners can utilize their property into commercial, institutional, multi-family residential, or accommodation uses.
Connecting the dots for all Ayala Land estates is its estate management which ensures that communities run smoothly, adapt and recover quickly from challenges.
“Soon, confidence will return; economic activities will increase, and so our efforts today are focused on ensuring that our developments are well-positioned for resurgence and remain as strong platforms for growth,” Zuluaga said.
In all, an Ayala Land community seeks to offer its stakeholders — residents, office workers, or business owners hope of a better life in the future.
