Nature and Modernity: The Best of Both Worlds

The pandemic made individuals rethink their preference for living in small condominium units located in high-traffic commercial and business districts. 

Property seekers are now looking for bigger properties outside of dense urban areas. More families and individuals today deeply crave everyday access to safe outdoor spaces.

This movement back to nature is what Foressa Mountain Town offers.

The lot-only residential development by AboitizLand is nestled in the picturesque mountains of Cansomoroy, Balamban, Cebu, just an hour from the city along the Transcentral Highway. 

Families can safely revel in the outdoors because of the mountain community’s thoughtfully designed alfresco spaces.

Owning a Foressa Mountain Town property feels like living within the welcoming and refreshing ease of residing deep within nature.

Getting Back into Balance

A common dilemma among many contemporary families is that they can no longer live without the creature comforts that city living affords them, and yet they also crave privacy and play in the green outdoors far from the noise of the city. But Foressa residents can enjoy the best of both worlds because the mountain sanctuary is part of a 540-hectare integrated township so it has easy access to top commercial and retail establishments, being the residential enclave of West Cebu Industrial Park (WCIP)

The highland enclave is part of the future industrial-anchored township that houses West Cebu Industrial Park, which also hosts the shipbuilding capital of the Philippines.

The mixed-use economic center of Aboitiz Group along the western seaboard is home to a successful shipbuilding industry that contributed to Cebu’s dramatic economic transformation in the 1990s and improved the quality of lives among community residents in the area. 

Property seekers can expect that Foressa, being part of WCIP, is guaranteed to grow in value as the township progresses. AboitizLand’s solid track record of enhancing the value of land can be judged by the historical performance of the most premium addresses in Cebu that it has developed.

What all this points to is that at Foressa Mountain Town, families and investors can relax in an idyllic sanctuary set amid lush nature while knowing that modern-day comforts are just a short drive away.
