Four districts take shape at Alviera

Ayala Land Inc. has tweaked its  large-scale, mixed-use estate in Porac, Pampanga to respond to the needs of the market.

Alviera, which is jointly developed by ALI and Leonio Land Holdings Inc. (LLHI) has been expanded to 1,800 hectares from 1,100 hectares originally planned and its investment upped to P100 billion from P90 billion.

The new masterplan has broken down the development into four distinct districts incorporating a more revved up leisure component and accelerated industrial development.

While half of the development would still be residential, the expanded Alviera has devoted 16 percent of the property to the leisure component.

John Estacio, Alviera general manager, in a press briefing said ALI was encouraged by the thriving tourism of Central Luzon which attracted 3.6 million visitors in 2015.

Estacio said it was a direction given by the company’s board for a more complete development, banking on the inherent strength of the region, the third largest in terms of GDP.  Region 3 is also  the second largest in population with higher education graduates.

Alviera West is a 500-hectare development which would house most of the leisure additions, particularly in the northern part.  Attractions include adventure tourism, hiking and glamping  (glamorous camping) to wellness and medical tourism to themed hotels and even a golf course.

Estacio said ALI is in talks with international hotel chains to set up in the district.  

Estacio said the lush greenery, rolling terrain and high elevation  of this district would call for low-impact  development with the southernmost  part to be devoted to low density residences.

The district would also have a retail area. With the planned Subic-Clark train system, Alviera West would host a station or terminal.

In this section annexed by Alviera is an area inhabited by indigenous peoples. 

According to Estacio, experts are now studying how the Aetas living nearby would be folded into the development while ensuring their culture and heritage are preserved.

 Over at Alviera East is the thriving industrial and commercial center connected to the main local road, just at the Porac exit of the Subic-Clark expressway.

Estacio said the first phase of Alviera Industrial Park  totalling 31 hectares with 16 lots is 95 percent sold, prompting the company to launch the second phase, another 32 hectares with 21 lots for companies catering to the domestic market.

He said ALI plans to make available standard factory buildings for future locators.

Locators for phase 1 include companies in food manufacturing, motorcycle assembly, packaging, logistics and warehousing. The non-PEZA industrial park was designed for light to medium, non-polluting industries.

Estacio sees the industrial park attracting investors and generating a lot of economic activity. Phase one alone has lured companies which would employ 5,000.

Alviera East also features  a 7-hectare commercial hub situated next to an institution, the industrial park, and the 180-hectare residential communities.

The Alviera City Center meanwhile has a business district, a regional mall, as well as  residential development. The center will be highly accessible from ScTex and major thoroughfares.

Running through the estate is the Alviera Greenbelt, a five-km long green corridor to be kept organic and pristine that will serve as a respite and convergence zone integrating the communities together. This district will be the home of the Alviera Country Club and the La Salle Botanical Gardens.

Slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2018, the country club will be a first-of-its-kind in the region designed by the renowned architectural firm Leandro V. Locsin Partners intended to offer a perfect escape for urbanites and a venue for convergence, social and family gatherings. The La Salle Botanical Gardens, a collaboration between Alviera and Dela Salle Philippines, is envisioned as a world-class botanical garden with a collection of at least 25 themed garden patches, the project draws inspiration from internationally-renowned gardens such the Jardin botanique de Lyon in France and the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens in London. The project will also house a full-scale laboratory, a plant nursery, greenhouses, and libraries.

Alviera’s initial residential offering through its two residential brands Alveo Land and Avida Land has sold 74 percent of its total phase one inventory. These residential projects have seen values appreciate by 20 percent in the past two years as the estate continues to rise. 

Alviera will also soon launch its luxury brand Ayala Land Premier residential subdivision steeped in the estate’s natural green spaces.

The first phase of the estate’s infrastructure is set to be completed towards the end of the year. 

Located minutes away from Subic Freeport and Clark International Airport, Alviera will soon offer more transportation options for visitors. Talks are ongoing for public transportation linkages to Clark and Angeles.

Estacio said in the next five years, Alviera will have residential communities , with the country club, industrial park, schools and leisure attractions to be in splace.
