The journey to 100 cafés starts at Forresta
Written by: Amy R. Remo
It marks the start of a remarkable venture that will see a network of a hundred beautiful cafés gracing the lush landscapes of the 3,500-ha Villar City.
On Oct. 14, Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc. founder Manuel B. Villar Jr. led a groundbreaking ceremony for the first of the 100 cafés, which will rise within the 118-ha Forresta, a mixed-use community that seeks to offer a blend of urban sophistication and natural serenity.
For sure, this up and coming café in Forresta will not only offer a delightful array of coffee blends and sumptuous bites, but will also serve as a community hub and a lifestyle destination for connoisseurs and casual enthusiasts. Similar to the existing cafés of the Villar Group, this newest one is also set to provide a premium coffee experience for the community as well as tranquil spaces for relaxation, meetings, and culinary experiences within a “city in the forest.”
That’s because this modern café will be cohesively embedded within the lush spaces in Forresta. It will likewise have tall windows that will allow natural lighting to filter through the shop, while enabling guests to just marvel at the calming verdant landscapes laid out before them as they enjoy a good brew.
Indeed, this new café rising in Forresta will serve as the perfect prelude to the kind of healthy, nature-immersed lifestyle that awaits future residents in this community. After all, Forresta seeks to create a community where greenery is not just a backdrop but an integral part of everyday life.
Amid beautiful natural surroundings, with verdant blooms and urban wildlife, Forresta will rise with its mix of premium-grade high-rise office towers, thoughtfully designed upscale residential condominiums, commercial hubs, and ultra-exclusive residential lots.
Initially, Brittany will develop the first district comprising 19 ha, which will be the site of its first ultra luxury residential enclave in Forresta. This premier-themed community, poised to ensure elegance, safety, convenience and exclusivity, will offer lots ranging from 857 sqm to 1,461 sqm. This translates to only five lots per hectare, thus making it a truly prominent address reserved only for the discerning few.
It’s worth noting that about 50 percent of the community will be dedicated to green spaces such as Forresta Fields and Forresta Park, affording future residents and locators the luxury of being able to commune with nature, whenever they want and wherever they are in this neighborhood.
At the same time, Forresta’s abundant green landscape can play a vital role in enhancing air quality and promoting a healthier, more active lifestyle. Aside from helping reduce the community’s carbon footprint, the profusion of trees and verdant areas will also create an atmosphere conducive to enhancing well-being, boosting productivity, providing a calming influence on the senses, and facilitating outdoor activities.
To be within this luxurious green oasis that is Forresta also means being part of a visionary estate that spans across 15 cities and towns within Metro Manila and Cavite.
Villar City, touted as Metro Manila’s new center of gravity, is a multifaceted megacity development—emerging to become a thriving nexus where economic, lifestyle, cultural, and leisure activities will converge.
This masterplanned integrated development will be composed of 15 satellite cities, which are expected to complement one another to provide residents, entrepreneurs, and companies with a conducive environment—be it for growing careers, for raising families, or for expanding businesses. These planned cities will include a modern CBD, a Tech Valley, a university town, and a premier lifestyle hub, among others, set amid some 1 million trees and cafés.
Indeed, Forresta and its soon to open café are merely a glimpse of all the thrilling developments that you can expect only in this promising estate. Anticipate a plethora of exciting prospects yet to come only in Villar City.
