Forresta: Living with Nature in an Exclusive Forest City

by - February 28, 2023

A seamless harmony of nature, architecture, and leading-edge technology is rising in the urban south, offering contemporary homes and modern hubs in serene, natural settings.

This is Forresta, a 118-hectare mixed-use estate at Villar City in Alabang touted to become a luxurious "city in the forest" where premium grade, high-rise office towers, upscale residential condominiums, and ultra-exclusive residential lots are well integrated and cradled in nature's midst.

The nature-inspired mixed-use development will be the first and most prominent of the four main estates to rise within Villar Land, which spans some 2,500 hectares of prime raw land in the dynamic area of Daang Hari. As a prized landbank owned by real estate tycoon Manuel B. Villar Jr., Villar Land is envisioned to become a modern, vibrant central business district that reconnects man and nature.

A verdant future

Committed to building a verdant future, Villar Land is set to plant a million trees and over a hundred gardens spread across the network of cities within this estate.

Designed to be a walkable and bike-friendly environment, Villar Land goes beyond providing a community conducive to thriving businesses and flourishing families. It also seeks to offer a leisure lifestyle steeped in nature, where affluent families across generations will find a sophisticated, masterful retreat amid the lush canopy of trees and colorful gardens, which will serve as the lungs of this vast development.

Forresta, in particular, will offer beautiful natural surroundings, allowing future residents, workers, and guests to enjoy the lush forests, verdant blooms, urban wildlife, and other greeneries within this luxury property.

Of the 118 hectares within Forresta, the first district to be developed will comprise 19 hectares, where Brittany Corporation's first ultra-luxury residential estate in Villar Land will rise.

Brittany, the luxury residential arm of the country's largest homebuilder, Vista Land and Lifescapes Inc., creates premier-themed communities, touted as prestigious addresses that provide modern, sophisticated spaces ensuring comfort, safety, and exclusivity.

Prominent address for the affluent few

Elegance, exclusivity, and nature will undoubtedly define Forresta's residential offerings, which are envisioned to become one of the most prominent addresses reserved for the affluent few. In this promising community, living spaces will be created with wellness and luxury in mind.

Here, you can find the right balance between tranquil and dynamic living, enabling you to enjoy the calming presence of nature and modern creature comforts, given its proximity to major road networks, including Daang Hari Road, Daang Reyna Road, and the Manila-Cavite Expressway, as well as thoroughfares such as Villar Avenue across Crossing Cafe, Villar City-Amore Avenue along Amore, Villar City-Dasmarinas Avenue, and Palazzo Avenue along Palazzo Verde and Glass House.

This connectivity also means easy access to educational centers, health institutions, golf and country clubs, and retail and lifestyle centers like Evia Lifestyle Center.

Forresta is also minutes away from posh neighborhoods like the Italian-themed communities of Portofino Heights, Portofino South, and Amore and the newly opened Glass House by Coffee Project, which features cozy interiors, lush gardens, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, transparent ceilings, and excellent food and coffee.

Embraced by nature

As 50 percent of the estate will be dedicated to parks and green spaces such as Forresta Fields and Forresta Park, future residents can expect their homes to be embraced by nature, with their indoors and outdoors cohesively integrated into a beautiful rustic setting where calm and relaxation beckon. At the same time, the fresh air gives you a breathable environment that is good for your health.

Currently on offer are lots with sizes ranging from 857 square meters to 1,461 square meters, which translates to having only five lots per hectare—thus ensuring a certain level of exclusivity and privacy in your nature retreat.

Future residents can look forward to a meaningful living experience with Forresta's thoughtfully designed eco-smart homes and residential buildings, energy-efficient lighting solutions within the community, the availability of a seamless internet fiber connection, and a 24/7 secure and fully electric perimeter fence with RFID subdivision gates.

There is no doubt that Forresta will inspire you to escape to a modern, nature-inspired retreat you can proudly call home.

Besides Forresta, Brittany offers a fine selection of home designs, high-end condominiums, and lot-only properties in excellent locations, such as Portofino in Alabang, Lausanne in Tagaytay, and Georgia Club in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, and Bern in Baguio.
