The development of modern communities comes with not a few requirements. Future residents and denizens, more often than not, look for different things. Depending on their stage of life, long- and short-term goals, or even bucket lists, the priorities may be different. Some wish to be in the center of the city, others wish to have distance from the busyness. Some want small and simple spaces, others want spacious and stylish dwellings. What is essential to one can be an extra for another, and vice versa. There is a universal expectation, though, that seems to cut across real estate buyers. Not as often headlined as hot locations, distinct architecture, and top-line amenities, the idea of a place that supports growth is a significant decision-making factor. Newlyweds look for a place to start a family; parents need space for growing-up children; overseas workers and single professionals deserve great homes for their future; entrepreneurs seek locations where business will prosper; and retirees look to having their own space to enjoy many future pursuits. Finding a neighborhood that nurtures the expansion of perspectives, ideas, knowledge, and relationships – a vibrant, lively place that truly supports life – make a meaningful and wise investment.
Perhaps inspired by its location in Laguna itself – which, less than 3 decades ago was still considered a sleepy province, but is now a metropolis on the rise – a new community dedicates itself to the cultivation of growth, learning, and development. Eton City by Eton Properties Philippines, Inc., the real estate arm of the Lucio Tan Group, brings the promise of a self-sustained community that empowers lives across different phases and plans to the heart of Sta. Rosa, Laguna, near Cavite and Batangas. It is envisioned to be the south’s premier university town and one of the region’s relevant central business districts. Soon to rise nearby are the campuses of the University of the East and University of Sto. Tomas, as well as corporate offices and commercial centers. It is far enough from Metro Manila’s hustle and bustle yet close enough to urban comforts and conveniences that surround the area. And with an exclusive exit, the main expressway is a mere 5 minutes away.
Eton City Square Perspective

Prime spaces that let life bloom
Each village takes inspiration from various architectural influences, creating premium-themed communities that give way to elegant ways of living.
