With the belief that “Filipinos deserve better” forming the core of its operations and successes, Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc. continues to be the largest integrated property developer in the Philippines.
“Creating better, more expansive and global-oriented offerings and experiences for its residents has always been the impetus behind the company’s continued success. This evolution has become the antecedent for its newest program, Vista Estates––cities built within cities that offer what an urban sprawl purveys, but in microcosm. These miniature metropolises come infused with themes and offerings inspired by the best-loved places in the world and are designed to recreate global living and lifestyle,” Vista Land told International Finance.
The strength of Vista Estates lies in its ability to forecast housing trends and gauge consumer sentiment in its master-planned communities. It has earned recognition for offering entertainment, work opportunities, services, open spaces, transportation, and residential options in an ‘all-in-one’ solution, right in the confines of the residential communities.
“The experience is elevated and world-class––taking the best the world has to offer home to roost. Roost it does as there are 60 Vista Estates pipelined across the country, finding the places across our islands where Filipinos prefer to live, choose to raise their families, and aspire for the tomorrows they work so hard for,” the company stated further.
Decoding Vista Estates’ Master-Planned Communities
Vista Estates operates its residential and commercial property businesses through six distinct housing brands, namely Camella, awarded as Best Developer in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao in the recently concluded Lamudi The Outlook 2023 Philippine Real Estate Awards, Communities Philippines, Crown Asia, Brittany, Vista Residences, focusing on high-rise residential properties, and VistaMalls, which is involved in commercial property developments.
Talking about Vista Estates’ master-planned developments, in bloom up north is Rosevale Towers in Tuguegarao City, a development of Vista Estates that blends tropical charm with tinsel-town allure.
“Verida, Balanga City’s first eco-estate modeled after Singapore, is rising in the Land of Valor. Provence in Malolos is the premier enterprise megacity in the north inspired by the joie de vivre of France. Provence won the coveted Best Township Development in Luzon in the recently concluded DOT Property Awards 2023. Paving the way for a new metro north lifestyle is North Commons in Caloocan City. Mimicking the character of its namesake mountain town in Colorado, USA, is Aspen, located in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan,” Vista Estates told International Finance.
Apart from the other projects, Vista Land has stretched its presence in other flourishing urban centres in the country, such as The Crescent, a 38-hectare New Orleans-in-miniature in Santa Maria, Bulacan. Another project, named Castellana, is a 60-hectare recreation of the Spanish region of Castilla y León on Baliwag soil. Montessa in Subic, Zambales, encapsulates a community inspired by Spain’s Pueblos Blancos.
The majestic Ilocos Region plays host to two Vista Estates: Bramasole casts endless rays of possibilities in Laoag City by crafting a Tuscan countryside for those who ‘yearn for the sun,’ and Querencia in Metro Vigan will be composed of charming hamlets and tower clusters of white stucco topped with clay-tile roofs so loved in the California landscape.
Another project titled ‘Vidarte’ has emerged as the art district in Antipolo, Allegria, touted as the ‘District of Fun’. Stanza is located in Tanza, Cavite, a community where business and leisure sync in harmony. Praverde, which is the green sanctuary in the bustling city of Dasmariñas, Cavite, is highly commended as the ‘Boutique Developer of the Year’ by Lamudi The Outlook 2023 Philippine Real Estate Awards.
The Italian’s love for life finds expression in Milano, located in Bacoor City. Further south is Santerra, Naga City’s nature and lifestyle district. On the island of Panay, one will find Georgia, which bested other finalists in becoming the Best Mixed-Use Development in Visayas and Mindanao. Rising in Zamboanga is Andaluz, a 32-hectare mixed-use development blueprinted after Andalusia in Spain.
Similarly, themed projects like ‘The Midtown’, ‘The Montage’ and ‘Altafina’ have brought a paradigm shift in the Philippine housing landscape.
Vista Land is also planning to create similar well-thought-out neighbourhoods in Pangasinan, Isabela, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Cavite, Bohol, two in Davao, Bukidnon, Agusan del Norte, and South Cotabato.
