Open air and sweeping nature views find a rare convergence with exclusivity and accessibility in
The Enclave Alabang
City living has become an ideal nowadays. It comes with the image of progress: being surrounded by modern architecture, thriving businesses, established institutions, and easy access to the finer things. Great emphasis is placed on accessibility and the connectivity one has with the various places that set the backdrop of the goings-on of everyday life.
The bright lights of the city life, however, seem to drown out other important things. Proximity to booming establishments come at the cost of clean air and privacy,and the desire for greater digital connectedness causes many to lose sight of the importance of space and peace.
Building a home now often means having to choose between accessibility and space. It is a difficult choice, especially because it affects one for the long-term. But it is not entirely impossible to find a place where accessibility and exclusivity converge.
Set at one of South Metro Manila’s most prestigious locations, The Enclave Alabang offers an address that is exclusive, while still retaining its accessibility to the city. “This is a unique opportunity,” Catherine Ilagan, Filinvest Alabang Inc. EVP says of the project. “As a developer, you can’t develop a subdivision that’s very near the urban centers, [but here] we feel that we’re still very much part of
the urban community.” Located just minutes away from Filinvest City and easily accessible from major roads like SLEX, Skyway, Daang Hari, and MCX, The Enclave Alabang provides that private respite characteristic of a subdivision, while keeping the city within close reach.
The Enclave Alabang also lives true to its name. Despite being surrounded by developments with foreign influences, especially in this deeply connected metro, The Enclave Alabang strives to understand and reflect the Filipino sensibility. A result of the collaborative efforts of renowned design firms AECOM, H1 Architecture, and Budji+Royal Architecture+Design, the property and especially its homes feature a tropical modern design, apt for the climate and environment in the country.
Each of the limited-edition designer homes feature clean lines, wide spaces, and large windows: a contemporary re-imagining of the traditional Filipino hut of our roots, where air and light freely flow, and nature is within reach. These homes, though modern, still elicit a feeling of calm as they maximize their surroundings. Each home’s large windows also allow for light and nature views to enter in
abundance, which in turn not only lift moods, but also help in supporting a more sustainable lifestyle.
In the midst of the metro’s scarcity of open spaces, the property offers its own repose. At the heart of the 10.5 hectare development is the Central Park, an all-natural open space where residents can come together. The park and man-made lagoon serve as a scenic backdrop for the community’s gatherings, both formal and informal. A 1500 sqm clubhouse also houses various amenities for every resident, with its kiddie and lap pools, gym, function rooms, and gaming room.
With a little less than half of the entire development dedicated to open spaces and landscaped areas, The Enclave Alabang, with its 169lot offerings, takes pride in being an exclusive, close-knit village that doesn’t scrimp on any of its features. “It is very, very exclusive. . . but what makes this property unique is that even though the density is very controlled, it has generous amenities everybody can
enjoy,” Ilagan says. “You won’t have to worry about how many people are using the facilities. [Here, because of the low density of residents, you can fully enjoy the lifestyle.]”
The Enclave Alabang is Filinvest Group’s newest development. Located along the Daang Hari Road at the heart of the progressive new segment of the Metro South, The Enclave Alabang offers masterfully designed homes and spaces that value exclusivity and space—now considered luxuries in modern city living.
