Not too long ago, on the way to a beach trip to Punta Fuego, my friends and I took a short detour around Nuvali, a relatively new development around the growing city of Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I was amazed at how beautiful it was, not only because of the structures, but also on how it was able to keep a very “green” facade to it all. My friend Sandy told me that more than just keeping the greens, the area even recycles water and really values environmental sustainability. This is a refreshing change from the usual goals of modern development, wouldn’t you think?
At first I thought it was merely a commercial center (we passed by the area where there were outlet stores and restaurants) but apparently I was wrong Amidst the 1,750-hectare metropolis, complete with educational, recreational and leisure establishments, is Avida Village Nuvali.
Avida Village Nuvali also features a multi-purpose hall, basketball court, swimming pool and play area, and several pocket parks. Plus it has interconnected alleys and accessible neighborhood stores. With living green as a priority in Nuvali, everything is designed with not just aesthetics in mind, but functionality as well. As such, the need to depend on cars or private vehicles is greatly reduced. Imagine living in a community where you are not bothered by the sounds of tricycles at all times of day?
Homes in Avida Village Nuvali range from a 88-200 sqm lot area, which makes it perfect for first-time buyers and young families alike. And though Sta. Rosa, Laguna may sound far away, it is only a 30 minute drive away from Makati
