Eton City: The Gateway to the South

In the last few years, an increasing number of people are moving into the peripheries of Metro Manila to settle into a more peaceful and less stressful suburban life. More and more offices and commercial centers are setting up in major growth corridors such as Laguna, Cavite, and Pampanga. However, this rapid urbanization also exponentially increased vehicular traffic in these rising districts. Because of this, finding a neighborhood that is centrally located and easily accessible from major road networks makes a meaningful and wise investment for those looking to purchase a property in these areas.

In Sta. Rosa, Laguna, Eton City makes a strong case for people who want to enjoy the benefits of living in a suburban community, like having access to wide and serene natural spaces, but still want to be close enough to the urban comforts and conveniences that surround the area. Before getting into the inner business districts and residential areas in Sta. Rosa, Eton City welcomes you to the South with its own exit along the South Luzon Expressway. It still offers a faster and safer route going to Tagaytay. With this exclusive exit, the Alabang CBD is approximately 25 minutes away and the Makati CBD about 45 minutes away.

Low-density residential villages

Developed by Eton Properties Philippines, Inc., the real estate arm of the Lucio Tan Group, each village in Eton City takes inspiration from various architectural influences, creating premium-themed communities that give way to elegant living.

Combining unique homes, verdant surroundings, and open spaces in distinguished village concepts, Eton City is envisioned to be a vibrant and accessible community. Strategically located with easy access to education, business, and lifestyle hubs, the themed residences and premium amenities of West Wing Residences, TierraBela, Riverbend, and South Lake Village will be investments that grow as individuals, families, and communities do.

Inspired by Dubai’s Palm Island, Nevada’s Lake Las Vegas, and California’s Foster City, South Lake Village is a 70-hectare residential development that features 18 distinct island lots hosting masterfully planned high-end homes surrounded by a 35-hectare manmade lake. Designed in the Asian contemporary style, each residence is a showcase of luxurious living.

Riverbend is a cozy and secure neighborhood that takes the same theme of nature-meets-the-city, but interprets it in the contemporary Asian aesthetic. Set amidst a backdrop of blue skies and green expanses, Riverbend’s first-class homes offer distinct designs that marry sleek architecture with rustic inspirations. The 9-hectare riverside-inspired cluster is perfect for those seeking a change of pace.

Taking its cues from the warm and laid-back atmosphere of the Italian-Mediterranean region, TierraBela features a landscape that merges nature’s charms and city sophistication. Its 8.7 hectares of residential spaces feature a modern and contemporary rendering of Italian-Mediterranean architecture. Lot areas are as big as 323 square meters, assuring residents there is enough breathing space indoors and outdoors. The leisurely pace is complemented by a swimming pool, basketball court, village clubhouse, playground, picnic and barbecue areas, and a fitness trail.

The American contemporary style reigns in the West Wing Residences, with homes and amenities designed for quality bonding time and rejuvenation. Two-storey homes in a range of configurations dot the idyllic green expanse of the 20-hectare enclave. Each one is set amidst wide outdoor spaces and landscaped gardens, allowing the young ones to enjoy the fresh breeze just right outside their doorstep when playtime rolls around. At the park are trees that make perfect spots for reading a book, watching the children have fun, or other forms of relaxation. A village clubhouse, adult and kiddie swimming pools, playground, jogging path, open field, and basketball court provide other avenues for fun activities. There’s even barbecue and picnic areas for those lazy weekend afternoons.

Rising commercial district

Soon to rise a stone’s throw away from these developments is Eton City Square, a neighborhood retail and commercial center that will give residents and visitors diverse options in shopping, dining, leisure, and entertainment.

The South campuses of the University of the East and University of Sto. Tomas will also rise nearby.
