Living in the city can be thrilling and fun. Being at the center of the civilization, the fast-paced environment encourages its settlers to move around and keep up with the city’s hustle and bustle. However, this kind of lifestyle is not fit for everyone.
Choosing between the slow-paced life in the county and the fast career advancement in the city can be a difficult decision. But with the fast growing provinces like Cavite, one can enjoy the perks of both worlds.
Here are ten more reasons why you should consider Cavite your home!
Rich History and Culture
Known as the place where Philippine Independence was first declared, the town of Cavite played an important role in the history of the Philippine Republic. Preserved historic properties include Aguinaldo Shrine, Corregidor Island, Sangley Point and Bonifacio Memorial Shrine.
Living in Cavite brings you closer to some of the best dishes in the country, including Tagaytay’s famous bulalo and special buko pie. Also, Cavite is the place for home cooking restaurants such as Breakfast at Antonio’s, Leslie’s and Lolo Claro’s Restaurant that one shouldn’t miss!
Shopping Malls and Entertainment Centers
There are over 50 malls in the province of Cavite wherein residents can enjoy leisure time without the need to travel to the city. Major shopping mall chains include SM Supermalls, Robinsons Malls, and Ayala Malls.
Big developers such as Ayala Land and Megaworld are constructing mixed-used developments in Cavite where the potential for growth is seen as huge. Mixed-use developments are suburban communities that blend the residential, commercial, institutional and industrial uses that connect pedestrian easily.
Few of the township projects to watch out for this year in the area of Cavite include Southwoods City in Carmona, Vermosa in Imus, Lancaster New City in Kawit, Suntrust Ecotown in Tanza and South Forbes City in Silang.
With the rise of commercial hubs in parts of Pasay, BGC, and Muntinlupa, it is no doubt that the Philippine real estate development is going southwards. Investors consider Cavite a good place to establish business due to the low cost of labor and high supply of manpower. Currently, there are over twelve industrial parks in Cavite, mostly in the business of manufacturing.
The Vermosa project will become the hub for call centers, IT companies and other businesses that will provide employment to hundreds of residents in Cavite.
Vast Residential Lots
As envisioned by Tomas Aguirre who founded BF Homes, gated communities in the south of Manila would be best for the working segment who wishes to live close to work and still enjoy the life away from the busy streets of the city. Residential subdivisions are also ideal for growing families who wish to live with enhanced security and access facilities for leisure and recreational activities.
The suburban setting in The Courtyard, a gated community within Ayala Land’s latest township development Vermosa, encourages its residents to enjoy vast living space. In this 130 hectares residential development, there are 431 lots ranging from 470 to 1,947 square meters that families can avail.
Due to Cavite’s close proximity to Metro Manila, it is considered to be one of the best places to dwell in if you work in Makati, Pasay, Muntinlupa, or Las Pinas. Because of new road developments such as Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX), SLEX-Daang Hari Road, Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX), and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), traveling to Makati from Cavite is now possible in 30-45 minutes. These road structures offer alternate routes to motorists and minimize the travel time for commuters going to the city.
Accessible through MCX going to Makati is Ayala Land’s newest mixed-use development in Cavite called Vermosa. The travel time between Vermosa and Makati can be cut to 55 minutes during peak hours through MCX.
- Lesser Crowd
There is a much lower density of population in Cavite compared to Metro Manila. In 2010, Metro Manila has a density of 19,000 people per square kilometer while the province of Cavite has a density of 1,950 people per square kilometer.
With the drastic rise of population in Metro Manila, a place where you can spend a quiet time alone is such a rare sight. In Vermosa, Ayala Land has devoted a total of 165 hectares (or 24% of the entire development) to parks and greenways to promote a healthy environment that gives an immense space to breathe.
- Less Air Pollution
As a highly congested region, Metro Manila’s air quality may not be the best environment to grow a family. Vehicles being the number one source of air pollutant in the area, it is important to have a well-planned blueprint of the city to make it more pedestrianized.
To reduce dependence on private cars to travel to work, Vermosa guarantee that neighborhood retail centers are easily accessible within a 10-minute walk or bike ride from any residential development within its premises. Ayala Land aims to promote a “walkable” city where people would prefer walking or riding a bike than driving.
- Quick Weekend Getaways
Only hours away from Manila, the city of Tagaytay is an all-time favorite weekend destination among people from the metro. Whether you feel like climbing mountains or hitting the beach, Cavite is home to Mt. Pico De Loro, Ternate Beach, Balite Falls, Corregidor Island and more.
