GT Tower International, H.V. Dela Costa, Makati, Kalakhang Maynila, Pilipinas
In 1976, it launched its first project, the Tytana Plaza and Mandarin Mansion in Binondo, Manila.

The success of Tytana Plaza and Mandarin Mansion gave way to more projects such as The Soler Tower in Binondo and Metrohomes Townhouses in San Juan City. In the 1980s and through the ’90s, Federal Homes continued the development of high-rise residential and office projects around Metro Manila. The Group ventured to Makati with two projects, a residential-commercial building, Skyland Plaza, and an office building, Philippine AXA Life Centre building.

In 2002, Federal Homes changed its name to Federal Land, Inc. The rebranding signified the evolution of the Company as its portfolio of properties grew from residential and office buildings to now include commercial developments.

It progressed from single-tower buildings to multiple-tower communities in Pasay, Marikina, and Cavite. The Company also developed residential condominium clusters in new sites in Makati, Manila, and Quezon City, and eventually in Cebu.

In 2009, the Company opened its flagship office building, the 47-story GT Tower International on Ayala Avenue in Makati City. Federal Land further increased its footprint in the commercial real estate sector with event venues and strip malls in Pasay City.

Federal Land launched several landmark projects by partnering with some of the biggest and most trusted names in the global arena. World-renowned Foster + Partners designed their first project in Manila, the ultra-luxurious The Estate Makati. Federal Land partnered with Hyatt Hotels to develop the first Grand Hyatt branded residences in Southeast Asia, Grand Hyatt Manila Residences. The Seasons Residences is a collaboration with respected names in Japan architectural firm, Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd., and retailer Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, Co. Ltd.

Federal Land believes that creating a core mix of residential and commercial properties makes self sustaining communities that are dynamic and attractive places to live, work, and play
