As many continue to build projects in city centers and central business districts, trusted property developer Sta. Lucia Land Inc. is busy fueling growth in the fringe areas and the countryside.

Believing that progress and economic growth should not be limited to the metro and the major CBDs, Sta. Lucia Land has been working doubly hard to bring landmark developments that could help boost economic activity to emerging areas. Over the years, it has helped reshape the landscape and the lifestyles of hardworking Filipinos through its wide portfolio of property developments across the country.

“The company has made it its mission to continuously develop in the city fringes and the countryside. We have long set our sights on these emerging cities and provinces where we try to grow and evolve with its residents. As a property developer, we believe that we have the power to create landmark developments that could help fuel growth and bring progress to an area,” said Sta. Lucia Land Inc. president Exequiel Robles.

The 4.5-hectare Orchard Golf Residential Estates in Dasmariñas, Cavite promises to be the perfect setting for those who want to live a more active lifestyle.

“This is also part of our nation-building efforts, inspiring us to build and deliver world class developments across the country. All these developments have managed to serve as an ideal sanctuary for many, especially during this time when the country continues to grapple with the ill effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” he added.

Sta. Lucia Land is the listed real estate arm of the Sta. Lucia Group, a pioneer in the property sector with a solid track record over the last five decades. Today, the Sta. Lucia Group has already built over 250 pioneering projects—from world-class golf courses and country clubs, the first commercial mall in the east of Metro Manila, resort-themed communities, lakeside developments to award-winning hotels and residential condominium projects. 

The Crown Residences in Palawan is a four-level condominium building that offers premier condotel suites on the first three floors and penthouse luxury suites on the fourth.

In South Luzon alone, the Sta. Lucia Group has already developed over 5,413 hectares of land covering over 200 projects spread across Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Palawan.

The Group’s landmark projects include, among others, the 800-hectare Eagle Ridge Golf & Country Club and the 300-hectare Orchard Golf & Country Club in Cavite; the 10.5-hectare Sta. Lucia Mall Complex and 500-hectare Greenwoods in Rizal; the 200-hectare Summit Point in Batangas; the 50-hectare La Huerta Farm and Residences in Laguna; and, the 33-hectare Catalina Lake Residences in Palawan.

The 50-hectare La Huerta Farm and Residences allows owners to build their dream home in a farm estate.

Despite its impressive record, Sta. Lucia Land continues its land banking activities, mindful of the opportunities provided by the government’s P1.8 trillion “Build, Build, Build” initiative, a growing demand for quality housing and secure communities, and a resilient real estate sector.

Currently, Sta. Lucia has more than 60 ongoing projects spanning over 60 hectares across South Luzon. Among the more notable upcoming developments include Alta Vista, Catalina Lake Residences, Centro Verde, Greenwoods, Yanarra, Green Peak, Sotogrande, and Sonoma Place, among others.

The 26-hectare Yanarra Seaside Residences in Nasugbu gives one easy access to a pristine beach and lush landscapes.

“We continue to enter into fresh joint venture agreements and acquire new sites in key areas including Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Baler, Palawan, as well as in Visayas, particularly Iloilo, Cebu, Davao, and Silay City in Bacolod. In Metro Manila, the company is looking to expand in Marikina and Quezon City. You see, the continuing growth of Sta. Lucia Land is a testament that homebuyers and investors continue to trust us as a partner for their investments,” Robles explained.

The 25-story Santorini Tower is the second of the five Mediterranean-inspired residential towers within the cosmopolitan complex of Sta. Lucia Residenze in Cainta, Rizal.

“Although we have been present in South Luzon for decades now, we believe that there’s still much that we can do and offer to continue being a catalyst for growth. More than ever, we remain committed to our goal of addressing what our market needs and providing them with top quality developments that they can call home,” he concluded.
