Crowding, pollution, and mobility problems in major urban centers are putting the megacities’ labor forces at great risk, even more so during a pandemic. To help mitigate the impact of COVID-19, measures that include sheltering in place and switching to a work-from-home (WFH) setup are being implemented by local governments and businesses. As Filipinos prepare for a post-pandemic scenario, AboitizLand communities beckon, given that they are located outside the National Capital Region where there are wide open spaces and generally cleaner and healthier environments.
As a national real estate developer that has a reputation for being one of the most trusted companies in the Philippines, AboitizLand believes in and works toward countrywide economic and social growth. Ajoya, its residential project in the new-wave growth region of Central Luzon, supports a new and better way of life for families.
Changing Property Preferences
Perhaps now more than ever, it has become even more desirable to pursue a life that promotes thriving, not merely surviving. The community quarantine has also created shifts in residential real estate preferences: homes in suburban locations have become more attractive to property seekers, according to industry watchers. Lamudi reports that 83% of respondents on its site have been considering properties away from traditional commercial and business districts.
Ajoya communities in Pampanga, Tarlac, and Nueva Ecija represent AboitizLand’s clear understanding of the population’s yearning to live better and more sustainably. The residential communities are characterized by a superior masterplan with signature features like greenbelts or natural green open areas and a network of walkable spaces and amenities, all of which are shared spaces that help build warm friendships through chance encounters with neighbors. In Pampanga, there are house options that face pedestrian-only parks, providing direct access to greenbelts where children can play without the danger of oncoming vehicles. As a mixed-use development, Ajoya fosters employment, enjoyment and convenience, safe connections, and security for families.
For the residents’ peace of mind, the gated neighborhood has round-the-clock security and strictly-enforced pandemic protocols. Having a centrally located town plaza in Ajoya means getting back home easily after running a quick errand. Families can reap the benefits of a daily dose of the pleasant outdoors while being inside a safe, walkable, and flood-free community.
Stay-at-home parent-entrepreneurs, who desire to provide a good life for their children while staying close to them, are supported through the village shophouses. These are 3-storey, townhouse-type units that serve as a residence and business address in one. The ground floor is dedicated to commercial space, while the second and third floors house the owner’s living and dining areas, and bedrooms for the family.
Ajoya homes are designed to make residents feel better about life through optimum natural lighting and ventilation, and a balance between privacy and social connectedness. In light of the new normal, the porches and ventanillas help foster community relations while promoting social distancing.
Another compelling reason for property investors to choose Ajoya developments is the presence of major infrastructure developments that will connect the region better and will guarantee property value appreciation over time. These include the Central Luzon Link Expressway (CLLEX), Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) Extension, Manila-Clark Railway, Clark International Airport’s new passenger terminal, and New Clark City.
Site development at the 17-hectare Ajoya Pampanga in Brgy. Eden, Mexico, Pampanga is targeted for completion by the first half of 2021. Aside from single-attached units, buyers can choose from a limited inventory of 5-bedroom single-detached, and lots-only.
Meanwhile, site development in Ajoya Capas is already 99% constructed and will be completed this third quarter of 2020. The 13-hectare development that straddles Brgys. Talaga and Estrada in Capas, Tarlac is amenitized with a clubhouse, court and pool, which will be fully operational by the second half of next year. It offers lots-only, duplexes, shophouses, and townhouses.
At the largest Ajoya community in Brgy. Valle Cruz, Cabanatuan City, site development is nearly 75% completed and remaining construction will finish by the first quarter of 2021. Recreational facilities like the clubhouse, athletics court, pool, and pool pavilion will be ready by the second half of 2021.
Affordability and ease of transaction are further reasons why #LifeIsBetterHere in Ajoya. Property seekers can take advantage of budget-friendly monthly payments as low as P8,800 in Cabanatuan, P5,100 in Capas, and P7,300 in Pampanga. AboitizLand’s contactless home-buying process—from inquiry and virtual project presentations to payments for reservation and monthly amortization—can all be done online.
