With several issues plaguing Metro Manila such as worsening traffic, flooding, and poor mass transportation systems, private firms have been compelled to take the lead in developing master-planned communities that integrate the live-work-play-shop lifestyle. The expansion of economic activities in the country’s capital, primarily fueled by the influx of multinational outsourcing firms, has contributed to the spike in demand for integrated townships.

Colliers expects developers to continue pursuing townships as these offer a better value proposition compared to standalone projects. This makes townships a viable investment option for an aspirational labor force.

We see developers pursuing more township projects in areas outside of Metro Manila such as Cavite, Laguna, Bulacan, and Pampanga over the near to medium term as land values are being unlocked by an aggressive expansion of road networks. We are confident that this will be sustained by the government’s push to generate economic opportunities in the countryside anchored on its commitment to usher in the “golden age of infrastructure.”
