Changing The Property Landscape Of Philippines

Vista Land’s commitment has been to create better and more expansive real estate offerings. This has led to the birth of ‘Vista Estates’, a groundbreaking concept where cities are built within cities, infused with themes and features inspired by beloved global destinations.

Vista understands housing trends and consumer sentiment better than its competitors, a skill which helps it to tailor its master-planned communities to the residents’ needs.

‘Vista Estates’ not only offers housing but a complete lifestyle package, including entertainment, work opportunities, essential services, open spaces, transportation, and various residential options, all within one planned neighbourhood.

With 60 Vista Estates developments in the pipeline, Vista Land is identifying locations across the Philippine archipelago where the locals can live, raise their families, and work towards brighter tomorrows.

Vista Estates manages its residential and commercial property businesses through six distinct housing brands, which cater to a wide spectrum of residential and commercial property needs, thereby making their parent venture a versatile and comprehensive real estate developer.

Some of the prominent examples of Vista’s unique and vibrant communities are ‘Rosevale Towers’ in Tuguegarao City, ‘Verida’ in Balanga City, ‘Provence’ in Malolos and ‘North Commons’ in Caloocan City.

‘Provence’, which drew inspiration from the joie de vivre of France, received the coveted title of ‘Best Township Development in Luzon’ at the DOT Property Awards 2023.

Vista Estates has been expanding its footprint to other burgeoning urban centres across the Philippines through projects like ‘The Crescent’ in Santa Maria, Bulacan, ‘Castellana’ in Baliwag and ‘Montessa’ in Subic, Zambales.

Diversity Takes Precedence

‘Stanza’ in Tanza, Cavite is seamlessly harmonising business and leisure, while ‘Praverde’, named the ‘Boutique Developer of the Year’ at the Lamundi’s ‘The Outlook 2023: Philippine Real Estate Awards’, stands as a green sanctuary in the bustling region of Cavite. On the island of Panay, Vista’s ‘Georgia’ bested other contenders to become the ‘Best Mixed-Use Development’ in the Filipino islands of Visayas and Mindanao.

Innovative real estate projects such as ‘The Midtown,’ ‘The Montage,’ and ‘Altafina’ have ushered a new era in the housing sector of the Philippines.

The Road Ahead

Vista Land plans to create well-thought-out communities in several other regions across the Philippines.

Vista Land has created a separate niche for itself by becoming a testament to the transformative power of the Philippines’ real estate sector.
