Lumina strengthens presence in Southern Tagalog
Southern Tagalog, the largest region in terms of land and population, has become one of the country’s growth areas. According to CB Richard Ellis (CBRE), it is one of the regions that can accommodate heightened industrial development. Department of Economic Research has also deemed the region to be a fast-becoming economic model with effective combination of cutting-edge manufacturing hub, highly productive agricultural sector and fast growing small to medium enterprises. With these premises, we can say, Southern Tagalog is one of the agents that propel the country to reach its optimum economic growth.
Southern Tagalog has also improved its accessibility with its network of roads: Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) that will cross Cavite and Laguna; Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX) that links the Southern part of Cavite to Muntinlupa; and the proposed Light Railway Transit (LRT) that will run to and from Bacoor, Cavite and Baclaran, Parañaque.
With this significant economic progress, Lumina, an up-and-coming mass housing developer, deemed Southern Tagalog to be an ideal location to provide Filipinos the pride of homeownership.
Welcome To Lumina Communities
Committed to provide affordable homes to typical Filipino families, Lumina created its mass housing communities in some of the mainland’s progressive towns in Cavite, Laguna, Batangas and Quezon.
Lumina in Cavite
In Cavite, accessible via CAVITEX are Lumina Tanza and Lumina General Trias.
Lumina Tanza is only 45 minutes away from SM Mall of Asia. This 18-hectare development has over 1,500 house and lot units in a community designed with amenities like a covered basketball court, multi-purpose hall, and mini gardens and playground.
Nine kilometers from Tanza, Lumina General Trias is in one of the country’s historical monuments where the First Cry of Cavite was held in 1896. Home to the famous Filipino Paella—Valenciana—and to heritage and historical sites.
General Trias also prides itself for its rapid industrialization. With the city’s master plan to achieve an agro-industrial and residential balance, Lumina came just in time with its 6-hectare development, now with about 150 house and lot units that are on-going construction.
Lumina in Laguna
Laguna is located southeast of Metro Manila and rests at the foothills of Mt. Makiling and Mt. Banahaw in the South and hugs Laguna de Bay’s southern portion in the north. Its largest city, San Pablo is known as the City of Seven Lakes where Lakes Sampaloc, Palakpakin, Bunot, Pandin, Yambo, Muhikap, and Calibato are found.
Aside from its rich eco-tourism, the city is also slowly developing into an industrial and commercial hub with the Villa Escudero Plantations at the center. Moreover, recreational and residential hubs have been started. One of which is Lumina San Pablo, located at Barangay San Gregorio with an initial 14-hectare land area that is expandable to 40 hectares. Only two months since it has been opened, the subdivision has already projected about 1,768 rowhouses and 203 townhouses to be constructed.
Lumina in Batangas
From San Pablo, the travel to Sto. Tomas, Batangas is just 30 minutes via Pan-Philippine Highway (also Maharlika Highway). Known for its special bone marrow soup or bulalo, tourists also come to Sto. Tomas to see the picturesque view of Mt. Makiling.
At Barangay San Vicente in Sto. Tomas lies Lumina’s flagship development that was launched in 2012. The close to 35-hectare Lumina Batangas has about 2,266 exclusive house and lot units with 734 finished units in Phase 1 and 1,397 in Phase 2 and a total number of 751 occupied units in both.
Sto. Tomas bounds Lipa City at its southwest. The city forms a portion of Taal Lake, being bordered by it in the west. It is considered a low-risk area for natural disasters because of its location at a valley between Mt. Malarayat and Mt. Makulot.
Accessible via SLEX and an hour and a half away from Metro Manila, Lipa has easy access to development trends making it a recreational, religious, commercial, industrial, and educational center. In this fast emerging city is Lumina Lipa, a 14-hectare development launched last March. The subdivision is still in phase 1’s land development with about 2,000 projected house and lot units to be constructed.
Lumina in Quezon
East of Batangas is Quezon which is known for the mystical Mt. Banahaw. The province is the leading producer of coconut oil and copra.
Lambanog and sweet delicacies are specifically known in Tayabas City which is dubbed as the City of Festivals. Aside from its colourful celebrations throughout the year, timeless are the city’s heritage houses, churches, and historical landmarks.
Nestled just between Tayabas City and Lucena City is Lumina Quezon, it being the intersection of cultural traditions and development trends. The 6-hectare housing development has about 1,000 house and lot units.
