Vista Land and Lifescapes, Inc. recently launched Vista City Iloilo, a P40-billion city development and its flagship project in the Visayas. It is poised to expand the developer’s existing projects in the region, turning a mostly residential sector into a full-fledged township.
Vista Land calls the new project a "communicity." "Communicities," according to the developer, are "innovative masterplanned city developments designed to be completely self-contained, with vast properties that offer facilities, amenities, community structures and commercial establishments closer to a city than a mere residential village."
At least 100 of the estate's 500 hectares will be used for the City Center, which will feature BPO offices, shopping establishments, hotels, event places, and amusement parks. This center is meant to be integrated with Vista Land’s seven residential projects and their amenities, which span 300 hectares and feature five clubhouses, four basketball courts, a tennis court, jogging and bike paths, gazebos, parks, and a playground.
Spanning portions of Oton, Pavia, and San Miguel on Panay Island, the development is close to a handful of universities, among them the University of the Philippines Visayas, Central Philippine University, University of San Agustin, and West Visayas University. Western Visayas Medical Center and The Medical City Iloilo are also nearby.
Vista Land debuted in with the launch of residential community Savannah Glades in 2000. Savannah and Lumina, another residential estate, make up majority of Vista Land’s residential components in Iloilo.
To date, Vista Land has built more than 300,000 homes and 23 masterplanned city developments in 35 provinces and 90 cities and municipalities all over the country.
