Crafting Connectedness: The Meadowcrest Masterplan by Federal Land

Article by Zinnia Olinares and Pamela Imperial

Federal Land, Inc., a stalwart in the Philippine real estate industry, is propelling its vision into the future with the development of Meadowcrest, a 48-hectare master-planned township in Biñan, Laguna. In a media event held on April 22, 2022, the company unveiled this initiative as not just an expansion but a strategic evolution, aimed at fostering community-centric living spaces that blend seamlessly with natural landscapes and modern amenities.

A strategic vision for Laguna

Laguna is rapidly emerging as a prime location for both residential and industrial growth, fueled by its strategic location and the recent developments in infrastructure such as the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX). This expressway enhances connectivity to Metro Manila and nearby tourist destinations like Tagaytay, positioning Biñan as an attractive site for Federal Land’s new township development.

Meadowcrest features a Village Center offering a mix of cozy nooks and lively brick-and-mortar storefronts to complete the community’s little town atmosphere.

 Alfred V. Ty, Chairman of Federal Land, elucidated their proactive approach, “A year ago Federal Land embarked on a journey of transformation. A journey guided by our steadfast commitment to innovation, adaptability, and foresight. We launched Federal Land Communities to anticipate and address the needs and aspirations of the people. We recognize that the real estate landscape is ever-changing, and it was imperative for us to evolve alongside. Federal Land’s foray into the realm of township development signifies not just the expansion of Federal Land’s portfolio, but a reaffirmation of our commitment to innovation and progress. Drawing upon 50 years of solid real estate experience and expertise, we are leveraging our strengths to reimagine and revitalize our existing township properties and create new and future-ready developments. Our aim is clear – to create fully integrated, interactive townships that are poised to stand the test of time of offering enduring value for generations to come.”

A masterfully planned lifestyle and business haven

 Meadowcrest is designed as a multi-use township that promises an intimate, yet complete lifestyle and business environment. Bolstered by Laguna’s roaring economic engine signifies commercialization as one of its main drivers of growth.

 Strategically located within the thriving Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay corridor further solidifies its appeal, placing residents close to top medical facilities, prestigious educational institutions, bustling retail centers, industrial parks, and the newly opened Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), it grants easy access to the metropolis and famous tourist destinations of the south.

William Thomas F. Mirasol, FLI’s President and COO, detailed the thoughtful layout, “Meadowcrest [offers] a distinct lifestyle and business environment that will be intimate. Its intimate footprint will allow for a thoughtful curation of residential blocks, retail shops, pedestrian lanes, parklets, and lively networks amongst its scenic landscape. It offers residents a walkable neighborhood that seamlessly integrates with the natural surroundings. These concepts will extend to the inaugural development within – Hartwood Village as the first residential enclave within Meadowcrest. Hartwood Village will set the standard for a community-centered lifestyle that will define the entire township.”

Redefining living with mobility and accessibility

 The innovative 15-minute community is crafting a lifestyle revolution that sets Meadowcrest apart from other townships. Stephen John S. Comia, FLI’s Project Development group head explained, “The 15-minute community is an urban planning concept that, as its name suggests, aims to create communities where people can access the amenities by traveling no more than 15 minutes.” Imagine a world where everything needed is within a comfortable quarter-hour walk or bike ride. It is a sustainable, convenient, and healthy approach to living, where everyday errands become a chance to connect with neighbors and soak in the fresh air.  Meadowcrest promises a life that is both convenient and enriching.

Embracing community with Hartwood Village 

The first phase of Meadowcrest’s residential options, Hartwood Village, aims to be a model for future developments within the township. Inspired by the Danish concept of ‘hygge’, which signifies coziness and comfortable conviviality, Hartwood Village is crafted to enhance connectivity, prioritize open spaces, and foster community interaction. This residential enclave provides a serene yet connected living experience, aligning with the overall vision of Meadowcrest.

 Comia expressed the focus on community, “Federal Land Communities provides a more thoughtful approach to the use of open spaces, as different areas in the development can be deliberately designed to cater to various lifestyle needs of residents and stakeholders. And these will continuously evolve over time to serve the various needs and desires of an ever progressive community.”
