ALI’s Vermosa estate propels progress with more action south of the metro
Written by: Vaughn Alviar
A burgeoning mixed-use estate in Cavite is unlocking new opportunities that can further fuel growth and progress in this dynamic province.
Vermosa, Ayala Land’s thriving master-planned development spanning 725 ha of prime land, presents fruitful prospects not only to discerning homebuyers and investors, but also to businesses, owing to the estate’s highly strategic location, premium array of locators thus far, as well as community amenities and features—not to mention its potential for high-value appreciation.
Right at the heart of two progressive cities
Vermosa straddles the cities of Imus and Dasmariñas in Cavite—two locations that have evidently benefitted from the urban sprawl south of Metro Manila.
Once regarded as bedroom communities, these cities have seen back-to-back developments over the years. Imus is now one of the nation’s most competitive cities, classified as a “retail capital” by the Department of Trade and Industry. Dasmariñas is among the wealthiest local government units in the province, largely because it is an industrial giant in Southern Tagalog. And they are not done climbing the ladder yet, with landbank awaiting transformation.
From Vermosa, one can conveniently access the varied offerings of the two cities, whether to live near them or to leverage them for business success. The development is located along Daang-Hari Road, a highway that has unlocked a belt of development on its path.
The estate also connects well to major expressways, to Muntinlupa and more. It will be minutes away from the future Skyway Extension and Imus exit ramp of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway. It’s 15 km from Alabang and just 28 km from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
All the convenience, and more, right at your doorstep
Vermosa, like all Ayala Land estates, is curated with diverse spaces for live, work and play. It welcomes big chains, homegrown enterprises, and reputable institutions, and brings them together to provide holistic lifestyles for the whole community.
Many of these businesses have now opened at The Shops at Vermosa, while more are set to enter. Landers Vermosa is set to open, and by November, the 41,000-sqm Ayala Malls Vermosa will host family favorites like Pancake House, Krispy Kreme, The Morning After, Nono’s, Mesa, Shakey’s, Mama Lou’s, FAMU, NiHao Hotpot, Texas Roadhouse, Modern Shanghai, Denny’s, Watsons and Libro Espresso. Ayala Malls Vermosa will also have sprawling open spaces for fitness and other active pursuits.
For those yearning, or already into the active lifestyle, you’d be elated for Ayala Vermosa Sports Hub. It is an 8-ha sports and lifestyle complex with a football field, an aquatic center, a sports laboratory and recovery center, and a dormitel. Furthermore, KTM Motocross Training Center hones the riding skills of all riders, whether beginner or seasoned.
Institutions are also within or near the estate, covering basic needs, quality education and safe environments and spaces.
De La Salle Zobel (DLSZ) Vermosa Campus is the school’s second campus that is programmed to take advantage of its location by providing the students conducive learning environments within and right outside the classrooms utilizing proximity to the open spaces, and the sports facilities within the estate. The campus is projected to cater to 4,000 students at full build.
The transport terminal of the estate is also set to kick start its operations this year— opening up more linkages to more communities and hubs.
On safety and security, the office of the Cavite Chapter of Red Cross, stations of the Bureau of Fire Protection and Philippine National Police, and the Imus Government Center are also situated within the mixed-use estate.
Lush open spaces abound here as well, providing residents with easy access to landscaped parks and pocket gardens. Specifically, the estate dedicated a green spine dubbed as the Vermosa Greenways and Play Park, which will serve as an avenue for the community and locators to converge and connect. This dedicated greenway runs throughout the estate.
The Vermosa estate will also be home to the St. Sebastian Parish Church, which is designed to have a 500-person seating capacity once built.
Prime and primed for high-value appreciation
Residential products include stock from Ayala Land Premier, Alveo Land, Avida and Amaia. The Courtyards Vermosa and Ardia Vermosa and Amaia Series Vermosa are lot-only offerings. Aside from lots, Avida Verra Settings Hermosa has house-and-lot products. Each one, true to the Ayala guarantee, is a forever home.
The residential lots have now enjoyed 70 percent value appreciation, from P30,000 to P51,000 per sqm. Even higher are values in commercial lots. Rising from P50,000 to P135,000 per sqm, value appreciation is at 170 percent. These numbers clearly show that in Vermosa, you will have numerous opportunities to further diversify your investment portfolio.
The Vermosa Campus Town, in particular, offers that opportunity to invest in commercial lots. This 11-ha mixed-use commercial district will soon allow investors to build residential buildings, office towers, and other commercial uses like hotels, retail establishments, as well as hospitals and educational institutions.
What will help Vermosa secure future growth is its curation for modern demands. It is a highly integrated development with fine forever homes connected to infinite growth opportunities, surrounded by vibrant, activated streetscapes, pocket parks, commercial spaces, human-scale retail experiences, and highly walkable environments. It is a large-scale mixed-use estate designed for balanced and active urban lifestyles—the lifestyle that enriches and grows with you.
