Finding your home in the South
Dec 1, 2021
Feel closer to nature in the vibrant neighborhoods of Mondia and Hillside Ridge, with all the city conveniences just around the corner. Home has a different meaning for everyone – a sanctuary, a haven of comfort, or simply a place of favorite family memories. In these fast-moving and uncertain times, a home is one’s safe anchor. Whether you prefer a modernized loft or a spacious suburban house, a home should feel like it was built specifically for you, and one that you love and enjoy with family. For those who prefer living a life that is calmer and more connected to nature, choosing a suburban neighborhood may be the best option. Surrounded by open spaces and a fresh breeze, it is where you can make daily life just as exciting and relaxing as a vacation. While living in a busy city certainly comes with its own benefits, living in a more suburban setting also has its own impressive advantages. As Metro Manila has become increasingly saturated over the years, people are now looking into other residential communities within neighboring cities. They have since turned to Southern Luzon, particularly Laguna and Cavite. These areas still offer all the modern living comforts within easy and convenient reach, and have become in-demand destinations in their own right. Laguna, primarily known as a go-to long weekend destination in the Philippines, presents compelling reasons to be a real estate hot spot. It enjoys an ideal mix of urban and rural living, while also serving as a gateway to holiday destinations such as Tagaytay and Batangas. It also boasts of a vast land area ideal for property development. The province is in proximity to Metro Manila and key regions such as Cavite and Batangas. A huge portion of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) is covered by the province, with the latter being a high-speed road network between the Cavite and Laguna provinces. Laguna, in addition, houses a number of major manufacturing plants, businesses, and scenic residential communities. Santa Rosa City, the second-largest government unit in Laguna after Calamba, enjoys its status as South Luzon’s major residential, commercial, and industrial center. Commercial establishments in Santa Rosa City include Alabang Town Center, Festival Super-mall, Paseo de Santa Rosa, Laguna Technopark, Ayala Malls Solenad in NUVALI, Lakeside Evozone, One Evotech, and Two Evotech (office spaces for Information Technology and Business Process Outsourcing companies). For relaxation, leisure, and recreational activities, the following are within close proximity to the area – Ayala Greenfield Golf and Leisure Club, Canlubang Golf and Country Club, Camp N at NUVALI, The Fields at NUVALI, and Seda Hotel NUVALI. Some of the country’s most reputable schools are also located within the vicinity, such as Ateneo Graduate School of Business, Brent International School, Miriam College NUVALI, De La Salle University – Canlubang, St. Scholastica’s College – Westgrove, Brent International School, and University of the Philippines Los Baños. The nearest hospitals to Santa Rosa are The Medical City South Luzon and QualiMed Hospital Sta. Rosa. Aside from Laguna, Cavite is a leading choice for people on the lookout for a location that is destined for growth. Silang, often associated as a stopover going to Tagaytay, has its own charm and pride with distinct garden restaurants, farms, and galleries or stores showcasing local talents. In Silang, you get to reconnect with nature while meeting passionate and talented people. Like Santa Rosa, Silang is thriving with residential communities nestled in serene, eco-friendly suburban environment. Located within key proximity to these places of interests are Alveo Land’s Mondia NUVALI in Laguna, and Hillside Ridge in Silang, Cavite. Mondia NUVALI in Laguna
An Ayala Land estate, NUVALI is the country’s first and largest thriving eco-city development located in the cities of Sta. Rosa, Calamba and the Municipality of Cabuyao in Laguna. All of which are part of the growth corridor of the CALABARZON Region. NUVALI is home to nature amenities, business spaces, prestigious schools (Everest Academy, Miriam College, Xavier School), shopping centers, leisure destinations, and multiple residential communities, including signature addresses from Alveo Land. Alveo offers a portfolio of thoughtfully-designed developments that cater to the unique needs of its discerning market, and the growing demand for residential spaces in this area. It has been offering multiple developments in NUVALI through the years, including Treveia, Venare, Mirala, and Lumira. Its latest development in
NUVALI is Mondia, also located in the southern district of this estate. This 48.8-hectare residential subdivision offers a distinct natural park environment that encourages outdoor family recreation. Now offering a fresh inventory of available lots, more families will get the opportunity to be part of this growing community. Get to feel a sense of relaxation with Mondia’s diverse array of amenity features designed for achieving fitness goals or unleashing your inner athlete. Open spaces and pocket parks provide escapes for holistic wellness, and are a safe place for families and individuals to get outside and be active. More than encouraging physical benefits, these parks and recreation areas also have a positive impact on mental health. Mondia boasts of 1.7 hectares of green space available for community gatherings, events, and outdoor activities and a clubhouse with approximately 1,000 square meters in floor space with an outdoor open area. There are indeed so many ways that residents can enjoy these spaces to build memories and strengthen family bonds together. Mondia’s other amenities include swimming pools (lap pool and kiddie pool), basketball court, and jogging and biking trails. Living in communities such as Mondia delivers everyday possibilities to accomplish and inspire. Hillside Ridge in Cavite
Located further south is Hillside Ridge, a new destination to enjoy living close to nature, while still having the essentials within reach. Just 55 kilometers from the Metro, Silang, Cavite area is a 50-hectare modern suburban lifestyle district, nestled between
NUVALI and Tagaytay. This development is within a highly connected area, with various access points through major thoroughfares of the Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, SLEX, and CALAX. Alveo Land, in partnership with Cathay Land, Inc., created this distinct collaboration within the first-class municipality of Silang. Both had a shared vision of giving Southern residents a higher quality of life filled with comfort and ease. Hillside Ridge is a 41-hectare, low density residential community, while Hillside Ridge Village Center is a 9.4-hectare upscale commercial district with vibrant lifestyle options and refreshing retail concepts. Adjacent to the commercial district, Hillside Ridge unfolds a 41-hectare, low density subdivision in this developing area. With a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood that inspires a deeper sense of community, this provides a safe environment to let kids explore and enjoy the wonders of nature. Several studies have revealed that time spent by simply viewing nature is associated with a positive mood and psychological wellbeing, clarity, and vitality. Hillside Ridge also allows you to experience a slower yet more meaningful pace as you take the time to appreciate the view with family and friends. This is the best antidote to “nature deprivation,” or lack of time in the natural world due to hours spent in front of computer screens. At Hillside Ridge, every day is even more fulfilling with all the fun activities that can be enjoyed with family. Hillside Ridge’s amenities include the clubhouse with function rooms, swimming pools (Children’s Infinity Pool, Lap Pool, Lounge Pool), parks and open spaces, pocket parks, basketball court, kids’ play area, camping area, and jogging paths. Your home is likely the biggest investment to make in your life. Find your ideal choice with Alveo’s latest developments in the South.
