Vista City merges business opportunities, culture, liveability and innovation in one location south of the Metro.
Vista Land and Lifescapes, Inc. recently celebrated the launch of Vista City, the brand’s 1,500-hectare master-planned city located at the junction of Muntinlupa, Las Piñas, Cavite, and Laguna. As a community that contains residential, commercial, and business elements, Vista City is said to be the brand’s most expansive project to date.
Evia Lifestyle Center is the city’s five-hectare commercial and retail hub found along Daang Hari, Las Piñas. Highly Commended for Best Retail Architecture and Best Retail Development in this year’s Philippines Property Awards, Evia combines well-known stores, restaurants, and open spaces into a popular recreational complex in the south. The leisure center’s first phase, Evia Everyday, currently contains features such as bars, restaurants, cafes, and a Rustan’s Supermarket. The outdoor walkway, Sky Art, and piazza are only a few of the features creating an artistic and relaxing atmosphere in the city. The second phase dubbed Evia Global Village will be completed within the year, and will offer an open-air retail promenade, fashion retail stores, and more restaurants. In the next five years, Vista Land also plans to build a multi-storey commercial complex as well as a regional mall within the center.
Vista City’s residential component includes Amore at Portofino by Brittany, which earned the title Best Housing Development – Metro Manila as well as the overall Best Housing Development recognition in Philippines Property Awards 2015. The other Vista Land communities within the city are the Italian-inspired communities of Portofino by Brittany and Ponticello by Crown Asia, as well as the more affordable Camella Cerritos and Camella Carson.
Vista Hub is the city’s business and commerce area. Inspired by Silicon Valley in the U.S.’s San Francisco Bay Area, it is said to be envisioned as one of the most advanced business and IT parks in the Philippines by inviting “digital mavens and future-forward minds”. The first phase, which is composed of 10 hectares, will be the future center of the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector. Aside from office spaces, Vista Hub is also home to Fernbrook Gardens, a Russian-Victorian wedding venue. A hotel with luxury facilities and full-service accommodations will also rise in the city soon.
University Town is a 100-hectare area in Vista City that is dedicate to athletics, health, higher learning, and religious worship by offering universities, museums, offices, a country club, a sports complex, and a hospital. The design will be reminiscent of a traditional Ivy League campus, but will possess cutting-edge technology and innovative architecture.
With the opening of the Daang Hari South Luzon Expressway (MCX), the city is now more accessible to those who traverse the area. The presence of MCX is an alternative route to and from Metro Manila and Cavite that is said to cut travel time by around 45 minutes.
Vista City is in a good location, and proof of this is the continuous development of projects by other real estate developers. This means buying a property in the city as a form of investment would be a good move, which is why Vista Land plans to continue aggressively expanding the development.
