Ayala Land Inc.'s (ALI's) massive township in Porac, Pampanga has been fast-tracked for development thanks to growing demand, said the property giant.
At 1,100 hectares, Alviera stands as an upcoming mixed-use development with a masterplan made up of a commercial district, a business and industrial park, university zones, a country club, recreational areas, and residential communities by ALI's subsidiary brands, Avida Land, Alveo Land, and Ayala Land Premier.
The residential projects, three in total, comprise Phase 1 of the development along with the country club, the industrial park, and two universities, namely Holy Angel University and Miriam College.
Phase 1 of the development has passed the midway point, reported ALI. Embankments have been completed and will be followed by land development works and utilities, which include a road connection from Alviera to SCTEX.
Spanning 207 hectares, Phase 1 costs P7.3 billion and development is set to continue for the next three years, according to John Estacio, general manager of Alviera. Up to 1,500 residential units will be ready upon completion.
Retail components are also in the pipeline, said Estacio. "People can expect retail in Alviera as residential units are turned over. The retail development will follow the build up of population in the development. Currently, we are developing a retail program for SandBox at Alviera given that the park has been getting a lot of visitors most of which are from Central Luzon and Metro Manila," issued Estacio.
A popular attraction within the development, the SandBox has an array of outdoor activities such as the Giant Swing, the country's tallest swing; a high rope adventure course called Aerial Walk Challenge; a roller coaster zipline, called Avatar One; and Adventure Tower, a five-storey tower where one can try rappelling and wall-climbing, among others.
"Following the success of Ayala Land in developing large-scale master-planned mixed communities like Makati, Bonifacio Global City and Nuvali, we envision a bright future ahead in our newest venture in the north," stated Estacio.
