Southern Luzon continues to generate a lot of economic activities driven by the influx of investors for IT and industrial parks, shopping centers, condominium complexes, and mixed-use developments, among others.
For example, Santa Rosa City in Laguna is host to several economic zones that generate employment. Among these are Laguna Technopark, Sta. Rosa Commercial IT Park, Greenfield Automotive Park, and Lakeside EvoZone.
Aside from its strategic location, South Luzon is fortunate that quality infrastructure projects are being developed to boost commerce, productivity and mobility.
One of them is the Cavite, Batangas, Tagaytay Expressway (CYBEX) that will be connecting to the Cavite-Laguna Expressway, which will reduce travel to and from Metro Manila by an hour or less. On the other hand, this new expressway will cut the travel time from Governor’s Drive to Nasugbu, Batangas, to only 40 minutes.
The ₱25.2 billion 50-kilometer expressway will connect Silang, Cavite to Nasugbu, Batangas.It has three sections. The first section starts from Silang to Tagaytay. The second section goes from Mendez to Magallanes, Cavite. Finally, the third section goes from Magallanes to Nasugbu.
Just like Central Luzon, Southern Luzon will also have a new airport. To address the future growth of travel and the influx of passengers in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), the provincial government will embark on the construction of the Sangley International Airport that can handle as many as 25 million passengers annually once finished. Meanwhile, the Sangley Point Airport, which has been operating since February 2020, was targeted to be upgraded for international flights.
Growth of real estate in Southern Luzon
Aside from its appeal as an investment site to industrial locators, Southern Luzon also provides good investment potential in real estate. Aside from providing passive income, experts said investing in real estate enables the investor to enjoy the investment once it appreciates over time.
Amaia Land, the affordable housing developer of property giant Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), knows the importance of South Luzon in their objective to provide quality and affordable homes to government employees, teachers, small and medium entrepreneurs, and overseas Filipino workers.

Aside from carrying the Ayala tradition of quality, Amaia has its Amaia CARES to push its sustainability campaign which stands for Connectivity and Accessibility (CA), Right-sized Living Spaces (R), Eco-efficiency (E) and Structural Stability (S)—the four components of Amaia’s quadruple sustainability platform.
