Vista Estates: Where ‘home’ is an entire city
The belief that “Filipinos deserve better” has always been integral to Vista Land’s day-to-day operations, as well as its success. Creating better and more global offerings and experiences for its residents has always been the impetus behind the company’s continuous evolution. This evolution has become the antecedent for the Vista Estates––cities built within cities that offer what an urban sprawl purveys, but in a microcosm. These metropolises come infused with themes and offerings inspired by the best-loved places in the world and are designed to re-create global living and lifestyles. Beyond that, they offer the entertainments, work opportunities, services, transportation, and residential options one would find in an entire city, but right in their residents’ backyards––within the communities, they call “home.” The experience is elevated and global––taking the best the world has to offer. To date, there are 60 Vista Estates scattered across the country, finding the places across our islands where Filipinos prefer to live.
With Vista Estates, Vista Land turns its focus on the creation of fully-integrated urban developments that bring together themed residences––both vertical and horizontal, retail, offices, universities, healthcare and other institutions, and leisure––all at global standard levels. Now, there’s no need to go far from home. One can fully enjoy the lifestyle one hopes for right in the “neighborhood.”
Amazing lifescapes are about to unfold in North Luzon as Vista Land unveils two prime master-planned developments : Provence, an estate inspired by the warm sea breeze of the French Riviera set in the City of Malolos, Bulacan, and Verida, a verdant eco-estate nestled in the City of Balanga in Bataan.
Inspired by the Joie De Vivre of SouthEastern France.
Much like Malolos, France’s Provence is a stunning realm of historic monuments, cobbled streets, seaports, and ancient manors. The master planners of Vista Estates take these parallels even further by designing residences inspired by archetypes of Provençal architecture. The homes have airy spaces, cozy and rustic. Earthy design touches are manifested in elements like exposed bricks, terra cotta tiles, faded finishes, and patinated beams.
The residences of Provence will incorporate the pastels and neutral colors of the French Mediterranean. Honey-hued living areas open into gardens and pathways. Elegant, simple, yet uplifted living is the hallmark of Provençal style, and that of Provence by Vista Estates.
Mediterranean History Co-existing with Metropolitan Bustle
Provence is built in three zones, categorizing different aspects of living and business. “Monte Carlo,” the first node––inspired by Monaco’s resort quartier, is a comprehensive integrated commercial hub offering residences, leisure options that include a VistaMall, a hotel, a hospital, a business park, an academic institution, and mid-rise residential buildings.
Node two is “Avignon,” the “city of the Popes,” which is the blueprint for a laidback neighborhood with a commercial center, vertical villages and a church fronted by a plaza.
The third node is dubbed “Nice” and will bring to Malolos the charm of the resort city of the Côte d’Azur. It is destined to be the city’s social and enterprise district. Nice will offer an events place, commercial lots, a shophouse block, mid-rise condominiums with leisure amenities including an educational institution hinged on the world’s quintessential relaxed and neighborly university towns.
Provence by Vista Estates is strategically located along MacArthur Highway, close to the Tabang and Pulilan exits of the North Luzon Expressway. Aside from driving through the expressways, it can be reached via track on the Tutuban-Malolos Railway, the Malolos-Clark Railway, the North-South Commuter Railway, and by air at the gateways of the Clark International Airport and the New Manila International Airport.
Verida. Inspired by The Garden City of Singapore.
With the dream to create the country’s foremost green nexus, Verida s is taking its cues from Singapore––ranked the most sustainable city in Asia and the fourth in the world according to the 2018 Sustainable Cities Index.
A portmanteau of the Spanish words “verde” and “vida”—meaning green and life—Verida sits on an expanse of about 50 hectares segregated into three key nodes : first is The Square, a smart metropolis that includes VistaMall, hotels, and a convention center; second is The Garden Promenade, featuring green places for eco-tourism, vertical estate living, retail and dining enterprises, and The Galerie – a shared street dotted with pocket gardens, play areas, and eco-reading pods. And third is The Park District, a socio-cultural hub, including a church and a plaza.
Master planned to be Pro-planet and Pro-people
With the vision to become Bataan’s premier eco-estate, Verida will be given over to open spaces, eco-tourism opportunities, and renewable energy advocacies. Verida will be a collection of edifices cloaked in green walls, roof gardens, and green spaces. The estate is composed of living spaces designed to meet the needs of modern-day urban dwellers, surrounded by green environs like the passive parks Singapore is loved for. These features include the cultural plaza, a business nexus, retail tourism districts, medical centers, a technology hub, and vertical residences, with Verida Towers as its initial offering. Verida’s masterplan allows for easy movement within the estate and access to whatever the residents need. It is designed to create the over-all feeling of openness, and a refreshing cleanness. Verida is built to be a sanctuary.
Access to the estate is easy. The North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), and the Bataan Provincial Highway allow one to reach Verida easily from anywhere in western and central Luzon.
