Ayala Land Premier keeps its legacy trailblazing in ‘South of Manila’
A new haven. A private sanctuary. A distinctive living experience. A new suburban address that boasts a rare confluence of life, work, leisure and nature.
These are what best describe Ayala Land Premier’s newest first-class suburban development in the Alabang-Cavite corridor, The Courtyards. The residential wing of Ayala Land, the country’s first and the largest full-line real-estate developer, keeps its legacy trailblazing in the “South of Manila” area with this latest project.
The Courtyards is a 130-hectare development that offers a tranquil suburban setting as well as easy proximity to the conveniences of the city, according to Ayala Land Premier head Jose Juan Jugo, It is located in Imus and Dasmariñas, Cavite, 10-15 minutes away from Alabang.
Ayala Alabang is the first-class residential development in the South of Manila area, which Ayala Land pioneered in the early 1980s, and The Courtyards continues the legacy.
Jugo explained: “The word ‘courtyards’ is derived from the placement of the lots; six to eight lots comprise a courtyard, similar to a cul-de-sac. One enters a courtyard through a driveway stemming from the main road and into a private neighborhood of six to eight homes. In the middle of the courtyard road is a patch of greenery.”
“We have designed The Courtyards to be the ideal living space for ‘full nesters’—families with one or more children, or else couples who are planning to add more to their brood, as well as established families who wish to move into a more peaceful suburban setting,” said Jugo.
There are 431 lots ranging in sizes from 470 to 1,947 square meters. Lots according to their location and proximity to a courtyard, the main amenity core and a greenway, which is a linear park running parallel to the main road, determine the prices ranging from P23,900 to P38,900 per square meter.
Courtyard lots are in front of a courtyard; Parklane lots, along the main road and in front of a greenway; Courtyard Park lots, in front of courtyards which are connected to greenways; Courtyard Park Premier lots, adjacent to a greenway; Courtyard Park Estate lots, adjacent to the main amenity core.
The lots from its first phase have generated high interest from the market, giving a sales take-up value of over P3 billion, only five months into the launch of The Courtyards, strengthening its stake in the first-class residential development in the region.
By 2016, residents can move in to their homes in The Courtyards.
Located near the main gate, the main amenity core includes a community center, playfield, swimming pool and a multipurpose court.
Two main thoroughfares make The Courtyards accessible. One (from the west) is Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, which leads to Daang Hari and Jose Abad Santos, and the other (from the east) is South Luzon Expressway (SLEx)-Alabang exit that leads to Daang Hari. With the opening of the Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway from SLEx by the second quarter of 2015, the SLEx exit would connect SLEx and Daang Hari, offering a more convenient route to The Courtyards.
Near malls, churches, schools
The Courtyards is near various recreational establishments such as The District malls in Imus and Dasmariñas, and Alabang Town Center.
Among the nearby churches are Our Lady of the Pillar Cathedral in Imus, St. James the Great in Alabang, St. Jerome Emiliani and St. Susana Parish at Alabang Town Center, and St. Joseph Parish Church in Las Piñas.
A quick drive away are educational institutions like De La Salle Dasmariñas, De La Salle Health Sciences Institute, De La Salle Santiago-Zobel School, Paref Southridge School, Paref Woodridge School and San Beda College.
“Ayala Land Premier is committed to the vision that every family member is able to balance his or her lifestyle and flourish with the conveniences we offer at The Courtyards,” said Jugo.
