The best cities are ones that continue to evolve. In today’s times, everything and everyone should continue to give room for innovation.
In the South, we have Evo City that has innovated to what we can consider today, as a progressive economic and residential hub. This rising 200-hectare master planned, mixed-use estate, is slated to be The Central Business District (CBD) of the South.
Similar to large estates of Ayala Land that continue to be top choices of residential dwellers and business establishments like: Makati, BGC, Nuvali and Vermosa, Evo City is poised to offer something new in the South of the Metro.
It will have a contemporary urban ecosystem that will provide not only a new home for future residents but also a hub for huge and budding entrepreneurs alike to further flourish their businesses. This eco system promises ease of living and working in the estate, as it provides a strong support system with the ancillaries that will be present in the development.
Situated in the evolving city of Kawit, Cavite, Ayala Land’s well-planned vision is slowly turning into a reality with the presence of commercial lots for prime business establishments to locate in. The commercial lots by Alveo Land will be clustered in Evo City West District. Also present is another Alveo Land’s signature residential neighborhood – The Residences at Evo City. During its pre-selling stage, it already indicated a high demand both from residents and entrepreneurs. They have seen potential growth in the estate and are seeing the perfect Ayala Land Formula of living within a well-developed mixed-use development.
The new age of urban lifestyles
The reason behind the aforementioned strong demand from businesses, homebuyers, and potential investors, is due to Evo City’s location, well-thought-out infrastructure, creative design, and complementing developments that make it sustainable to live, work and play in Evo City.
Masterplanned by multinational firm Duany Plater-Zyberk (DPZ), this estate consists of an integrated assembly of components that work together seamlessly. The design is mindful of the ease of movement and co-relation between residential communities, workspaces, retail establishments, entertainment venues, parks, schools, and public facilities that are all conveniently close to one another.
Residents can experience convenience, and accessibility, while businesses can expect to achieve growth and success through the ecosystem that the estate provides. Due to its accessibility, it is expected to have a vibrant community that will be the main consumers of these businesses. Apart from the residents, there will be weekend dwellers from nearby neighborhoods and cities. It will surely be a vibrant community here in Cavite that offers a new era of urban city living.
For many enterprises in the metro, Evo City is a great choice to expand one’s business. The estate will be connected through existing infrastructures. It will further be enhanced with future road projects like: The C-5 Southlink Expressway, the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), and the LRT-1 South Extension. This will surely make the drive and commute to Evo City easy and effortless.
Existing CBD’s in Makati, Bonifacio Global City, Alabang, and Ayala Land’s Vermosa, as well as the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), are all less than an hour away. This is through highway infrastructures like NAIAx, Manila-Cavite Expressway, and the Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX).
Evo City’s main entrance is located along Centennial Road, a vital thoroughfare in Cavite. This road is easily accessible immediately upon exiting the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX). Further, the Kawit Interchange of the upcoming CALAX will be located inside the estate. Once CALAX is ready to go, Evo City will have a seamless accessibility for visitors from and outside the Metro. This strategic positioning not only facilitates an effortless influx of visitors but also propels market expansion, anticipating a surge in commercial activities and fostering a vibrant economic landscape.
A booming business district
Evo City will be a booming business district with the presence of various offices, BPO buildings, commercial areas, a retail establishment by Ayala Malls, and residential village by Alveo. Evo City will surely thrive and achieve as it works its mark to completion.
In the core of the estate is a 32-hectare Evo City Park Plaza. This will be a mixed-use retail and entertainment center, similar to the development of Ayala Center in Makati. It will include a Visitor Center that will serve as an information pod of the estate. There will also be a 1000-seat Roman Catholic church, designed by Dominic Galicia Architects. This Ayala Mall will offer 54,000 sqm Gross Leasable Area and is set to open its first phase in 2024. Evo City Technohub office space is also slated to open its first phase in 2025. Earlier this year, S&R Membership shopping opened in Evo City, jumpstarting the economic activity within the estate.
Ayala Land developments are known for its green open spaces. Here in Evo City, residents and visitors can experience nature and have a calming walk at Evo City’s verdant parks. It will have a total size of 13-hectares and will be seamlessly connected throughout the CBD. The 5-hectare park will serve as the central amenity area of Evo City while the rest will house a linear park alongside retail establishments. There will also be parkettes to boost pedestrian experience. It will have bike racks, transit stops, and seating areas.
With such a huge potential in tow for Evo City, Ayala Land, Inc. has earmarked P4 billion for the construction of the Ayala Mall, church, BPO buildings, and the central park. These endeavors are slated for completion within the next three years, underscoring the commitment to establish Evo City as a flourishing Central Business District in the South.
