Breaking new ground
The Filinvest Group continues to develop Filinvest City, a sprawling central business district south of Metro Manila, the legacy of its founder Andrew Gotianun, Sr. In 1995, the Gotianuns developed a 244-hectare lot in Alabang, and established it into what is now the CBD of the south. Situated at the heart of the development is Festival Mall. A flagship of Filinvest’s LifeMalls category, Festival Mall recently a new wing with over 150,000 additional square meters. Filinvest City is also home to some of the country’s premiere institutions and global companies like the Crimson Hotel, Palms Country Club, Asian Hospital, Insular Life, Bellevue Hotel, and the Northgate Cyberzone – Filinvest’s 24/7 IT Campus, a PEZA registered Ecozone that houses various business process outsourcing (BPO) companies. The next three years will see the completion of Filinvest’s anchor projects such as Botanika Nature Residences Tower 1 and Bristol at Parkway Place and Parkway Corporate Center.
