Investing in real estate offers more than just attractive returns.

It could, more importantly, extend a certain level of stability and flexibility for the investors; offer an upper hand of being affiliated with a trusted, reliable brand; give businesses a first-mover advantage at times; and provide a host of other invaluable services and added benefits that would come most useful during challenging periods.

Take the case of Ayala Land Inc., investing in its sustainable, masterplanned estates— whether for a residence, an office, an industrial space or a commercial lot—has been proven to offer lucrative returns and value appreciation for your property over time. For instance, commercial lots in the 1,800-ha Alviera in partnership with Leonio Land located in Pampanga has seen the value of its commercial lots grow by 53 percent to P58,000 per sqm in just three years.

Strategically located to capture the growing Alabang and Cavite markets, Vermosa is positioned to provide a strong platform for economic growth.

Conducive platform

Beyond the more obvious benefits, however, Ayala Land estates have long been providing conducive platforms for businesses to grow and service communities on a much bigger scale. It offers, in particular, prime and flexible commercial lots in strategic locations and are seamlessly integrated within the estates while being highly connected to local and regional hubs as well as existing and planned infrastructure projects.

Charmaine C. Uy, SVP of Daiichi Properties, said in choosing locations for their business, they look for areas “where the value of the property will be resilient despite economic downturns. These properties usually have good access and in close proximity to supporting amenities or are part of an integrated development, such as Bonifacio Global City and Arca South.”

This is why Daiichi Properties has chosen Ayala Land’s Arca South for its latest project called Fifty Six Central, a thoughtfully designed 13-story creative office building.
“The estate developments of Ayala Land are well planned, well-constructed and properly maintained post-development. These developments continue to evolve through the years, constantly embracing first world designs and best practices, ensuring that the value of our projects in these developments continue to grow,” Uy explained.

Commercial lots by Ayala Land can also have multiple uses, offering investors a certain flexibility in terms of the businesses they will bring in—whether they’re looking to build retail shops, dining outlets, office buildings, studios, residential towers, dormitories, schools, healthcare facilities, among others.

Businesses in Vermosa, for instance, will cater not only to the future residents and workers within the estate, but also those living in nearby communities like Alabang and the rest of the fast-growing Cavite, tourists en route to travel destinations in the south, and those simply visiting the area to attend social gatherings, conferences, join athletic events, or shop in the many commercial destinations around the vicinity.
Especially with the opening of additional infrastructure projects like CALAX that opens up more linkages to and from other economic hubs and communities.

Commercial property investors could have multiple uses on a single building too such as having retail on the lower floors and office spaces in the upper floors. In the case of the 290-ha Cresendo, Ayala Land’s first masterplanned estate in Tarlac, shophouses will soon be introduced, enabling residents to set up stores in the ground floor of their homes.

Investing in a trusted developer

Partnering with a trusted developer will prove advantageous for those who are venturing into a long-term business.

Waltermart SVP Jojo de Guzman shared that their mother company and their other retail companies have a long history with Ayala Land since the 70s. Given the successful partnership over the decades, De Guzman stressed the importance of partnering “with a company like Ayala Land who has a proven track record, not only in the industry, but in so many aspects of the business. And I think they have actually delivered what they have promised, not only to its customers but to partners like us as well.”

“(Our partnership with Ayala Malls in Tagaytay) has proven to be very successful despite the competition within the area… So with the success, we are actually venturing into several areas in ALI estates such as Altaraza in Bulacan and The Junction Place in Quezon City, and we are also in current talks in other developments of Ayala in the pipeline. We are excited to partner (again) with Ayala Land,” De Guzman concluded.

Alviera introduces a new commercial district located near residential communities, a school and the industrial park.

Adapting to challenging times

It would be during the most challenging times that one can better appreciate a property developer with a strong track record, holds a diversified portfolio and solid financial muscle.

Despite the painful economic squeeze effected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Ayala Land has sustained its support for businesses by continued delivery of its promises in terms of development. Although completion dates for its projects have been slightly adjusted amid this health crisis, Ayala Land responds aptly by offering generous and flexible payment terms to help investors during these trying times.
