The South is home to lush greenery, clear blue skies and idyllic lifestyle—perfect for a weekend haven. But with industrialization, what was once a rural area is now teeming with development.
General Trias is one municipality in Cavite that has taken advantage of this opportunity. It is now home to several industrial developments such as the Gateway Business Park and Cavite Export Processing Zone (CEPZ).
Truly, life in General Trias is good, brought about by Mayor Luis Ferrer IV’s inspiring leadership.
With an impressive catalog of projects in General Trias, many property developers have since expressed their desire of expanding in the area. For nearly four decades, Federal Land Inc. has been at the helm of building quality residential and commercial developments. Sharing the vision of General Trias, the company recently embarked on a pioneer concept in the area with its The Oriental Garden Residences, an integrated community development near the intersection of Governor’s Drive and Trias-Amadeo Road.
“A new lifestyle for General Trias has emerged with the introduction of medium-rise condominiums, and we’re happy that Federal Land has chosen to build one in our community,” says Engr. Jemie Cubillo, Municipal Planning and Development coordinator of General Trias. “What is good about the project is that . . . it’s a work-play area. There are commercial properties around it so it’s near work, near play. This is something General Trias is looking forward to.”
As one of the country’s leading property developers, Federal Land has greatly contributed to the growth of townships and communities in the country. With The Oriental Garden Residences, the company hopes to strike a balance among the community, the environment and the economy.
Its strategic location allows residents to travel to other municipalities and nearby provinces. They do not even have to drive long distances, as schools, supermarkets, and other recreational destinations are available within the vicinity. The first phase of project named The Oriental Garden Heights is envisioned to bring a new generation of development in Cavite.
“Through projects like this, the use of land will be maximized. This is something that we hope to introduce to the community. It will be an excellent starting point for General Trias and us in line with the development of an industrial road that the municipality is planning to undertake,” Cubillo says.
