A 38-hectare integrated, mixed-used development is set to redefine suburban living and stimulate growth north of the metro.

Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc., the Philippines’ largest homebuilder and leading integrated property developer, brings to the City of San Jose Del Monte (CSJDM) Aspen by Vista Estates, an estate with a wide offering of spaces where guests and residents can live, work, shop, dine, learn, play, and invest. It will be part of the 320-hectare masterplanned development of the real estate giant in the largest city in Bulacan.

Carrying with it the name of a renowned mountain town in the US famous for outdoor recreation, Aspen brings to the country the distinct architectural style and sophisticated lifestyle of Aspen, Colorado.

The 38-hectare Aspen includes All Day Supermarket and a host of offices, health and wellness hub, and a hotel.

Dynamic lifestyle

A much-talked about concept nowadays is wellness. The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness as “the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health.”

In fact, it has become a significant movement in the country that it became the new norm sought by many Filipinos today, may it be in the workplace, in a public sphere, in a travel destination, in a community, or even right within their own homes.

Through Aspen, Vista Estates advocates the concept of dynamic living by integrating healthy and active lifestyle with everyday living. 

The estate, which features a dynamic cluster of recreational spots designed to cater to the active pursuits of both its guests and residents, is poised to help them chart their own road to wellness. 

To reduce reliance on private vehicles to move around, the masterplan ensures that its retail centers and other essentials are accessible within walking distance or just a bike ride away from any residential development within the project.

Distinct mix of elements

Inspired by the myriad of ways to explore the Colorado mountain town during summer time, Aspen by Vista Estates has its own village featuring a sizeable number of energetic activities one can choose from.

Aspen Village is a five-hectare sanctuary of retail, lifestyle, and relaxation. Whether it be for culinary escapades, for more athletic pursuits like skateboarding, biking, and jogging, or for restorative activities like yoga and pilates, there are spaces available for any of these ventures.

People from all walks of life can also experience its soothing landscapes, exquisite shopping and dining options, and prime spaces for work and other meaningful pursuits. The village also features All Day Supermarket, Dear Joe, a hotel, and the estate’s own version of Aspen Theater that can host musicals and plays, and an Aspen Amphitheater designed for interpretive talks and events.

Just a short distance from the village are areas sitting 100 feet above the ground for camping, glamping, and hiking, which guarantee beautiful mountain views and an ultimate adventure-packed experience in the estate.

The estate also puts a spotlight on Aspen Farmers Market, which offers locally grown produce and products, as well as Aspen Lane, an array of retail and dining concepts sure to offer shopping and gastronomic experiences like no other.

Never run out of dining choices at Aspen.

Residential lifescape

An all-in-one lifestyle and business district in Bulacan, Aspen also boasts of its own residential development that offers dynamic spaces within a natural setting, all cohesively designed to infuse physical activity into your daily routine.

Comprised of six buildings with seven floors each, the newest condominium in Bulacan offers ample living spaces for every person to relish in the simplicity and comfort of being at home. 

Building on the momentum presented by the estate, Aspen Residences is created with professional aspirations and active lifestyle in mind. It brings in a full range of amenities including a swimming pool, play area, yoga deck, walking and jogging lanes, a club house, an outdoor gym, and many other spaces where you can unwind and enjoy life with the family and the rest of the community.

Accessible living

Aspen offers today’s dwellers an ideal base, providing the tranquility of urban living, a choice to continuously pursue fitness and wellness goals, and proximity to modern conveniences within the estate and beyond.

The estate is strategically located along Quirino Highway with easy access to the other portions of Bulacan, such as Sta. Maria, and the northern portion of Metro Manila. It is only a 25-minute drive to the shopping district of Fairview-Novaliches, Quezon City. 

Its residents also stand to benefit from a number of major infrastructure projects surrounding this vibrant township. 

About 15 minutes away from the estate is the upcoming Metro Rail Transit (MRT) Line 7, which connects San Jose Del Monte to North Avenue in Quezon City. It is expected to reduce travel time between these points from two hours to just 35 minutes. An extension connecting CSJDM to the New Manila International Airport, via Bocaue, Bulacan, has also been proposed.

Further improving transport connectivity is the four-lane North Luzon East Expressway, which starts at Commonwealth – La Mesa Avenue and ends at Bigte, Norzagaray, with an interchange at San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan. 

Meanwhile, the C6 Expressway which passes through San Jose Del Monte, soon linking Bulacan, Rizal, Manila, and Cavite will only be 10 minutes away from Aspen. 

By being a hub for exclusive residences, first-class retail and dining concepts, and premium-grade workplace and commercial facilities, Aspen will become an urban oasis with the perfect combination of action, relaxation, and inspiration.
