Lipa City, named one of the Next Wave Cities by the Commission of Information and Communication Technology, has been attracting global players with its robust information technology and business process management industry. It has the potential to become the next leading mixed-use economic center in Southern Luzon region.
Completed in 2019, Lima Estate has more than 80 businesses in its industrial sector, notably the Lima Industrial Park, which has become the top selling and largest industrial property in the region.
There are over 60 retailers in its commercial area, bannered by The Outlets at Lipa, the Philippines’ largest outlet mall. It is set amid an open area with pocket parks, al fresco dining, and an Olympic-sized multi-sport field, Aboitiz Pitch. This will be complemented by Lima Exchange, a one-stop location featuring a department store, a supermarket, a drugstore, and more retail stores. Because of this, this thriving township earned the tag, “The Next Big Thing in the South.”
“The south’s economic boom encouraged us to develop Lima. This is the next big thing, creating a complete experience where residents can work, live, and play in one spot,” said David Rafael, AboitizLand president and chief executive officer.
“Batangas is a swiftly-growing province and we want to invest in a location that can offer an elevated lifestyle,” he added.
With over 1,350 houses inspired by the iconic “bahay na bato” (houses of stone), The Villages at Lipa was conceived with the promise to give residents a piece of the “Next Big Thing in the South.”
Comfortable, Connected Lifestyle
Designed as a “village within a village,” the 50-hectare The Villages at Lipa offers an integrated lifestyle within Lima Estate and the neighborhood itself, which used to be exclusive in Metro Manila and other megacities.
Its subdivisions, Sierra and Brook, are enriched with safe and inviting outdoor green spaces within easy walking distance of one’s homes. The villages abound with amenities, characterized by well-defined recreational facilities for the enjoyment of the family.
Sierra Village is meant to appeal to families with a sophisticated lifestyle seeking to expand their presence in Southern Luzon. It is for this reason it has larger house and lots suitable for such families. Brook Village is suited for professionals and growing families who seek an upgraded home experience.
Both communities have single-attached and single-detached homes, as well as townhouses and lot-only units. Site development is currently ongoing in the two villages, which have been enjoying strong take-up since their launch.
All houses within the subdivisions are designed with a porch, allowing residents to take in the fresh air as they step outside, and to interact with neighbors without leaving the safety of their homes. In the Sierra townhouses, a special feature is a special access to the T-gardens. In both communities, the houses located at the park side face the T-gardens and greenbelts.
To ensure pedestrian safety, park side houses feature carports that are located at the rear side to help prevent road accidents. Parents will also appreciate that the spine road has a designated lane for bicycles and scooters so that their children can get some much-needed exercise while staying safe and well-distanced.
Both villages have their own clubhouses, swimming pools, parks, and greenbelts to foster community interactions. For added security and privacy, they have fully-manned guardhouses operating 24 hours a day. Brook Village has a plaza and a court, while Sierra Village has an additional multipurpose hall and function rooms.
Lima Estate is far enough from congestion and noise of the metropolis but close enough to be able to drive to the familiar sights and sounds of Metro Manila, thanks to good road infrastructure networks. Being part of a township is also guaranteed to increase the value of a property in The Villages at Lipa.
In addition to the aforementioned facilities and establishments in Lima Estate, more developments such as business process outsourcing firms, dormitories, schools, hospitals, and churches are expected to rise, adding more life to the township and give growing Filipino families a holistic city experience.
Residents of the Villages at Lipa can enjoy a neighborhood where they can do it all. Lima Estate is only an hour away from Alabang and Makati, and is accessible via the South Luzon Expressway, the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road Tollway, and the Batangas Port. The location, amenities, and services make the township an excellent investment for those living in Batangas and Metro Manila.
It used to be that people from the rural areas would dream of living in Metro Manila and other major urban centers which seemed to offer career mobility and family support. But the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic has made megacities highly vulnerable, with many city dwellers fearful of its long-term effects.
In search of better ways to live, not to mention out of concern for safety and health, people are now considering moving to new-generation townships located in growth areas in the provinces adjacent to Metro Manila.
“All of these are part of our plan to acquire and develop more land across the country and ultimately offer more Filipinos improved quality of living,” said Rafael.
Even as the pandemic has caused shifts in social norms and innovations in urban planning, property owners are assured that AboitizLand communities will always be anchored on better ways to live and The Villages at Lipa promises to provide that lifestyle they seek.
