Sta. Lucia Land Inc., for one, banked on the potential of major tourist spots in North and Central Luzon, with property developments arising in Baguio City and the provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga.
With the opening of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx), Metro Manila dwellers now have easier and faster access to the North. This four-lane, 88.85-kilometer expressway shortened travel time from Manila to the summer capital of the Philippines from nearly six hours to just three and a half hours.
Sotogrande Hotel and Residences
The convenience offered by SCTEx added to the benefits of investing in a home and a business through Sta. Lucia’s Sotogrande Hotel and Residences.
Here, investors are not limited to owning a residential property—they are also given the freedom to choose from having a personal home or earning passive income through the project’s “condotel” units.
Opting for a residential unit means waking up to Baguio’s gorgeous mountain view and breathing in the pine-scented breeze while sipping on some freshly brewed coffee. Homeowners also have the privilege of being a few minutes away from a quick adrenaline-filled trip to Tree Top Adventure or a relaxing day of learning at Bell House in the tourist-favorite Camp John Hay.
Choosing to manage a condotel, on the other hand, opens up a business opportunity wherein one can earn passive income. Maintaining and having a condotel unit for lease would entitle owners to 30 free nights which they can use in the hotel. They also have the option to spend three nights in other branches.
Colinas Verdes Residential Estates and Country Club
Sta. Lucia’s Colinas Verdes Residential Estates and Country Club in Bulacan boasts of a convenient five- to 10-minute drive to various establishments and civic buildings, the closest of which would be SM Fairview and Fairview Terraces.
Colinas Verdes assures residents of security through its guardhouse and perimeter fence around the property, while also offering enjoyable amenities, such as swimming pools, tennis courts and jogging paths.
Beverly Place Residences and Business Estates
Homebuyers and investors from around the country—and, quite possibly, the world—could have direct access to Beverly Place Residences and Business Estates in Pampanga through the Clark International Airport, one of the biggest aviation complexes in Asia.
Perhaps the most distinguishable characteristic of this development is the fact that dwellers can live and work in the same area—sans the hassle of commutes and having to wake up in the wee hours of the morning just to get to the office on time.
This 422-ha estate, located in the municipality of Mexico, is most known for its 18-hole championship golf course, which also has a golfers’ lounge, clubhouse and locker rooms.
Accessible via the North Luzon Expressway through its San Fernando Exit, Beverly Place is near SM Pampanga and Robinsons Starmills.
Sta. Lucia’s growing presence in Luzon gives potential homeowners and investors more options other than having their homes in the already busy cities in the metro. Taking a break and enjoying the breathtaking mountain views and golf games in these locations—all while having the opportunity to manage a business—seem like a worthy investment.
