AboitizLand: Creating the enviable Mactan lifestyle-A A +A
Thursday, February 21, 2013
ABOITIZLAND is one of the few players in the real property industry which has consistently delivered breakthrough developments, setting the bar for residential, industrial and commercial communities.
Progressive and proactive urban planning among the aces up its sleeve, AboitizLand has created three complementary communities in fast-growing Mactan, reshaping its landscape, bequeathing an enviable lifestyle.
The company opened the Mactan Economic Zone II (MEZII) in Barangay Basak, Lapulapu City in 1995 as a landmark partnership with the Mactan Cebu International Airport Authority and the Philippine Economic Zone Authority. MEZII is now home to more than 40 multinational light to medium industries who collectively employ 18,000 skilled workers. MEZII locators are mostly in the electronics, automotive supplies, medical equipments, hobby, Business Process Outsourcing, home furnishings and garments industries.
To serve the needs of the zone’s locator-companies employees, Pueblo Verde, a neighborhood commercial center at the zone’s entrance area, welcomed its merchants in 1996.
It has since evolved into Mactan’s favorite destination with its choice complement of shops, dining establishments, a supermarket, banks and other service entities, allowing unprecedented convenience not only for the locators and employees of MEZII but to most of Mactan’s residents, as well.
For good reason, it features trusted homegrown brands, as well as reliable national merchants, Deli France and Orange Brutus, LBC, UnionBank, BDO and BPI, Robinson’s Supermarket and 360 Pharmacy, plus a 24/7 public utility vehicle terminal.
Pueblo Verde will open its doors this year to more merchants to bring even more excitement to Mactan Island.
Its success in Lapu-Lapu City propelled AboitizLand even further. In 2010, AboitizLand launched its first residential project in the Mactan Area, Ajoya, in Barangay Gabi, Cordova, within a few minutes’ drive from MEZII and Pueblo Verde, the beaches and tourist sites, Mactan International Airport and Cebu’s special economic zones.
Ajoya is a modern Filipino community takes its inspiration from the best of Filipino architecture setting comfortable memories of simple elegance in rhythmic motion.
The centralized amenity area at the 16-hectare project will be completed in the second quarter of this year. The amenity area, within a stone’s throw from the Gabi River, has an alfresco clubhouse, swimming pools, barbeque stations, a basketball court and open spaces.
All three communities in Mactan are set against the highest quality standards, meeting the stringent requirements of companies competing in the global economic arena, expatriate officers and globally-oriented Filipinos while exuding the warm and friendly Cebuano spirit.
Assistant vice president for Branding and Marketing, Chad Africa, sums it up, thus, “Each AboitizLand development has been master-planned and created to provide our vecinos (Spanish for neighbors; AboitizLand’s term for its clients; homeowners) and locators the ultimate living and working experience. Our promise is to develop high-quality villages that nurture long-term communities and we aim to live up to that commitment.”
With AboitizLand in the picture, the Mactan landscape is nothing short of luminescent. MEZII, Pueblo Verde and Ajoya have earned their places in Cebu as the purveyors of change and the bases of balance in the Mactan area.
