A future-ready green community

Filinvest City is further reinforcing its stature as a garden city via the introduction of lush, landscaped parks, bike lanes, and other eco-centric enhancements. 

This is on top of a thriving bird habitat, a living creek, a bike trail, and tree-canopied road networks dotting the 244-hectare development.

“A key element in our plan is the enhancement of existing open spaces into functional ones like parks,” said Filinvest Alabang Inc. (FAI) executive vice president Catherine  Ilagan. “We have all the components of a thriving township which we are presently enhancing to make it an even more exciting ‘green’ community.”

At the heart of this transformation is the innovative “green belt” aptly called the Spectrum Midway Linear Park, a foliage-canopied walkway that spans across the north and south ends of the township. 

“A lot is in the pipeline to transform Filinvest City into a smart city. World-class infrastructure are already present especially on connectivity. That is why it is one of the cities with highest concentration of BPOs in the country.

Filinvest City also has assured water and electricity supply, sanitation and solid waste management, efficient urban mobility and public transport, and safety and security of locators, tenants, and residents. We are currently in the process of finalizing plans to ensure a much wider access to IT connectivity within the whole city,” Ilagan said.

“We recognize that urban planning is about building a sustainable future. We are eyeing to register Filinvest City in the US Green Building Council’s LEED Certification for Neighborhood Development. Having infrastructure that promote wellness will eventually bring a high quality of life for the community,” Ilagan added.

With these many innovations, Filinvest City positions itself as a progressive CBD with the highest potential value, providing accelerated growth for its stakeholders.

“These are part of a deliberate plan to ensure Filinvest City would be a model township; that businesses would grow alongside its progress; that every investor, every businessman, and every resident of the city enjoys increased value of their assets. The city still has a lot of growth potential, and these enhancements would definitely boost it further,” Ilagan said.

FAI  has seen continuous transformation, acknowledging the need to carefully review and reassess the masterplan of Filinvest City, utilizing best practices in urban planning. The enhanced future-ready masterplan keeps in step with the needs of contemporary city dwellers.

Filinvest City is a thriving, fully-integrated, and self-contained 244-hectare central business district that offers a work-live-play environment. It  brings together a residential haven, a business central, a leisure destination, learning and education zones, and a medical and wellness hub, all just 15 minutes away from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport via Skyway or SLEX.
