    Sta. Lucia Land to fuel growth anew in fringe areas with planned expansions

    ‘Investing in the fringes is the most
    effective way to help prime areas that were once sleepy towns and
    enhance the quality of lives of Filipinos.’

    Sta. Lucia Land Inc. is continuing with its expansion plan to put up more large scale masterplanned residential developments in key areas nationwide, a move seen to fuel not only the company’s growth, but that also of the so-called fringe areas.

    Investing in such areas has been the strategy of the company over the past decades when it began expanding to more areas outside the Greater Manila Area. It sees this as the most effective way to help prime areas that were once sleepy towns and enhance the quality of lives of Filipinos through its landmark developments, according to its president Exequiel Robles.

    Sta. Lucia Land has an extensive footprint in Metro Manila and in the provinces of Benguet, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Zambales, Palawan, Iloilo, Negros Occidental, Cebu and Davao. It currently has over 60 ongoing projects spanning over 60 hectares in Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Palawan.

    “ Sta. Lucia Land continues to set its sights on the country’s fringe areas. Development and progress should not be exclusive to vibrant central business districts (CBDs). As developers, we should also pay attention to other strategic growth areas if we really want to achieve inclusive growth,” Robles said.

    He added: “ By developing areas outside of the CBDs and city centers, we are not only able to decongest the city but also bring growth and economic activities to more areas.”

    To date, the group has developed over 10,000 hectares of land into more than 250 projects across more than 70 cities and municipalities in the country.

    Sta. Lucia’s projects—which include world class golf estates, resort and lakeside communities, farm lot developments, condominiums and condotels, among others.
