When developer Ayala Land launched Arca South, the goal wasn’t to build a simple mixed-use development. Instead, the firm wanted to craft a fully-connected business and lifestyle district south of Metro Manila. Sitting on the 74-hectacre Food Terminal Inc. estate in Taguig City, everything from residential developments to malls and green spaces will eventually be found here.
News about Arca South has been coming out fast so you may have missed some of the latest developments. Don’t worry, here is some of the most important information about Arca South.
Getting to know Arca South
1) The best of Makati and BCG but low-rise
When developing the masterplan for Arca South, Ayala Land combined the best practices from its mixed-use developments in Makati and Bonifacio Global City among other places. Additionally, the focus will be on low-, and mid-rise buildings as oppose to high-rises in order to create a place with a unique vibe.
“We’re bringing the elements that are working well in Makati, Nuvali and BGC. Arca South is mixed-use and sustainable, which is true for all our estates, but what’s unique about it is that it’s a low-density urban development that has the potential to be the next CBD. Unlike other business districts where there are skyscrapers, the buildings in Arca South are between 12- and 15-stories high,” Arca South Project Development Head Stephen Comia told the Philippine Star.
2) Connected location
Arca South is situated in an enviable spot that is accessible via public transport to and from key areas across Metro Manila. It is also set to be connected to other central areas via the Southeast Metro Manila Expressway while the Taguig Integrated Terminal Exchange will allow for easy transit to Laguna, Batangas and elsewhere in Southern Luzon.
3) Space for all
We mentioned the low- and mid-rise focus of Arca South, but equal emphasis has been placed on the creation of low-density spaces that allow for more wide-open areas. All aspects of the mixed-use development have been designed to incorporate greenery as well as spaces that don’t feel cramped. This is something that will be found in the residential projects, malls, offices and entertainment facilities.
4) The ideal living place
The unique residential projects being built as part of Arca South will ensure there is a home to suit the needs of just about everyone. Each development will be a low-density, mid-rise condominium that connects seamlessly to retail areas and open spaces found throughout Arca South.
While each development is different, every single residential project allows residents to enjoy a holistic lifestyle tailored to the needs and demands of modern city dwellers. Units are currently pre-selling with some components of Arca South set to be completed later this year and early 2020 meaning time is limited to secure a home here at the best possible price.
