Filinvest Alabang Inc. (FAI) took home a Silver Stevie Award at this year’s 18th Annual International Business Awards (IBA).
Last year, FAI won the highly coveted Gold Stevie Award in the Real Estate Category.
Stevie Award winners were determined by more than 260 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from July through early August.
Believing that health, sustainability, and resilience are integral elements to property development, FAI built the 244-hectare Filinvest City— a complete live-work-play garden CBD south of Metro Manila and the largest township in Southeast Asia to have received a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) v2 Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council.
Long before the pandemic, FAI has consciously designed Filinvest City to be self-sustaining with several smaller, but complete districts that serve communities within walkable distances to allow for enhanced and inclusive mobility.
FAI’s forward-thinking design is proving to be essential during the current community quarantine: Citizens have easy access to conveniences such as medical care, abundance of open spaces, which offers breathing room and supports well-being, and the intuitive 24/7 estate management and available emergency response services. Filinvest City likewise received a Silver award as Best Workplace for the country’s first-ever Mobility Awards.
FAI’s sustainability values are also reflected in its office and residential developments. The LEED-certified first-grade office condominium in Filinvest City, Parkway Corporate Center, has also been named as the Best Office Development in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia in the 2020 Asia Pacific Property Awards. Pioneering green luxury residential condominiums in Alabang, Botanika Nature Residences, also echoes green and nature-centered living. For this, it has been recognized as the Best Sustainable Residential Development in the 2020 Asia Pacific Property Awards, the Best Residential Development in the Philippine Green Building Council’s 2020 Leadership in Sustainable Design and Performance and an Outstanding Development in the Department of Energy’s 2020 Energy Efficient Green Building Awards.
