Forresta will be home to trees and winding roads, beautiful landscaping, and various architecture, evoking a sense of calm because it is so connected to the surrounding nature.

This is Forresta, a 118-ha mixed-use estate at Villar City in Alabang, touted to become a luxurious “city in the forest” where premium grade, high-rise office towers, upscale residential condominiums, and ultra-exclusive residential lots are well integrated and cradled in nature’s midst. 

The nature-inspired mixed-use development will be the first and most prominent of the four main estates to rise within Villar Land, which spans some 2,500 ha of prime raw land in the dynamic area of Daang Hari. As a prized landbank owned by real estate tycoon Manuel B. Villar Jr., Villar Land is envisioned to become a modern, vibrant central business district that reconnects man and nature.

 A verdant future 

Committed to building a verdant future, Villar Land is set to plant a million trees and over a hundred gardens spread across the network of cities within this walkable, bike-friendly estate.

Giant trees and other plants surround the iconic skyline of Forresta’s residential buildings and office towers.

Besides providing a conducive environment for businesses and residents, Villar Land also seeks to offer a leisure lifestyle steeped in nature, where affluent families across generations will find a sophisticated, masterful retreat.

Forresta, in particular, will offer beautiful natural surroundings, allowing future residents, workers, and guests to enjoy the lush forests, verdant blooms, urban wildlife, and other greeneries within this luxury property.

 Of the 118 ha within Forresta, the first district to be developed will comprise 19 ha, where Brittany Corp.’s first ultra luxury residential estate in Villar Land will rise. Brittany, the luxury residential arm of the country’s largest homebuilder Vista Land and Lifescapes Inc., creates premier themed communities that provide modern, sophisticated spaces ensuring comfort, safety, and exclusivity.

Prominent address  for the affluent few

 Elegance, exclusivity, and nature will define Forresta’s residential offerings, envisioned to become one of the most prominent addresses reserved for the affluent few. Here, you can find balance between tranquil and dynamic living, allowing you to enjoy nature and modern comforts, given its proximity to major road networks including Daang Hari Road, Daang Reyna Road, and Manila-Cavite Expressway, as well as  Villar Avenue across Crossing Cafe, Villar City-Amore Avenue, among many others.

This connectivity also means easy access to educational centers, health institutions, golf and country clubs, and commercial centers like Evia Lifestyle Center.

 Forresta is minutes away from posh neighborhoods like the Italian-themed communities of Portofino Heights, Portofino South, and Amore, and the newly opened Glass House by Coffee Project, which features lush gardens, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, transparent ceilings, andexcellent food and coffee. 

Embraced by nature

As 50 percent of the estate will be dedicated to parks and green spaces such as Forresta Fields and Forresta Park, future residents can expect their homes to be embraced by nature, with their indoors and outdoors cohesively integrated into a beautiful rustic setting.

About 50% of Forresta is covered in trees, which will be dedicated to the development’s parks and green spaces.

 Currently on offer are lots with sizes ranging from 857 to 1,461 sqm, which translates to having only five lots per hectare.

Future residents can look forward to a meaningful living experience with Forresta’s thoughtfully designed eco-smart homes and residential buildings, energy-efficient lighting solutions within the community, the availability of a seamless internet fiber connection, and a 24/7 secure and fully electric perimeter fence with RFID subdivision gates.
