CAVITE stands out as one of the best locations in the South. Situated on the southern expanse of Manila Bay and within close reach to Metro Manila, it offers the perfect balance of urban accessibility and a tranquil escape.
Cavite’s booming economy has paved the way for numerous business and employment opportunities. This means that you no longer need to be away from your family or spend so much time commuting in order to provide your family with a quality of life. The province’s residential offerings, characterized by excellent design and quality, come at reasonable prices.
The province abounds with historic sites and landmarks, museums, golf courses, gardens, and facilities for leisure. Its oldest municipality, Kawit, is described as the “Flag Town of the Republic.” Comprising of 23 barangays, Kawit embraces both inland and coastal landscapes, offering a diverse tapestry of experiences.
Pioneering CBD in Kawit
Kawit, a place with a glorious past and renowned for its historical significance, is now emerging as a center for innovative place to live and work. Easily accessible to key Central Business Districts (CBDs) in the metro through existing and future infrastructure, Kawit is now home to Evo City, Ayala Land’s mixed-use development here in the South of Manila. Evo City is poised to be the next prime growth center. It nestles in the heart of Kawit, strategically positioned at the crossroads of history and modernity where the past and future converge to create a vibrant and dynamic hub for progress.
Embracing the spirit of progressive living, Evo City’s expansive 200-hectare estate fosters a dynamic environment where a harmonious blend of business, commercial, residential, and industrial options and opportunities will flourish, embodying the essence of today’s most forward-thinking urban developments and beyond.
Setting a new paradigm for modern central business districts, this groundbreaking urban development showcases innovative design and infrastructure that seamlessly integrates efficiency with the potential for thriving lifestyles and rewarding investments. The ongoing turnover of commercial properties in Evo City highlights the success of Ayala Land’s visionary plan and the growing confidence among businesses in the development’s potential.
Evo City is located along CAVITEX/Centennial Road, spanning barangays Batong Dalig and Tabon Bridge in Kawit, and is the main road artery connecting the entire western portion of Cavite.
Major road networks and highways converge at Centennial Road (Antero Soriano Highway), where the main entrance of Evo City is located.
Evo City is just less than an hour away and accessible from various points – from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) via NAIA Expressway and Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX); from Makati via EDSA and CAVITEX; from Bonifacio Global City (BGC) via C5 Road, Airport Road, and CAVITEX; from Alabang via Alabang-Zapote Road, and from Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX) via Daang Hari Road and Aguinaldo Highway Evo City’s accessibility is further enhanced by other road networks and infrastructure, including the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX), Cavite-C5 Southlink, Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), and LRT Lines 1 and 6.
It is also located right along Kawit interchange of the proposed CALAX. Once completed, this is a game changer as this will not only enhance the accessibility of Evo City but will also expand its market with the expected heavier volume of commercial activities.
Evo City is master planned by the international firm DPZ (Duany Plater-Zyberk), specialists in the New Urbanism approach—a design concept promoting the creation and restoration of diverse, walkable, and compact mixed-use communities. The other principles of urbanism include connectivity, increased density, green transportation, and sustainability. All these add up to a life of exceptional value and create places that nurture, elevate, and ignite the human spirit. An enhanced density fosters the integration of various urban elements, transforming them into a cohesive and vibrant ecosystem.
This interconnectedness brings together residential neighborhoods, workplaces, shops, entertainment venues, schools, parks, and civic amenities, creating a pedestrian-friendly environment that promotes a more efficient use of services and resources and a more convenient and enjoyable living experience.
Top of mind for any Ayala Land estate is an intuitively designed road network system that prioritizes the pedestrian experience. Setting Evo City apart are its shared bike lanes, empowering residents to navigate the estate with safety and efficiency and promoting a mode of transportation that benefits both the environment and personal health.
Evo City Park Plaza and Park Network
Realizing the huge potential of Evo City, Ayala Land has earmarked P4 billion for the construction of a 54,000 square meter Regional Mall, two BPO buildings, a church, and a Central Park which are set to be completed within the next one to three years. This will complement the existing S&R membership store and ensure that Evo City becomes a thriving CBD.
At the core of the estate is a 32-hectare Evo City Park Plaza. This will be a mixed-use retail and lifestyle center similar to the development of the Ayala Center in Makati. It will include a Visitor Center that will serve as an information pod of the estate. There will also be a 1,000-seat Roman Catholic Church designed by Dominic Galicia Architects. This Ayala Mall will offer 54,000 square meters of Gross Leaseable Area and is set to open its first phase in 2025. Earlier this year, S&R Membership Shopping opened in Evo City to kickstart the economic activity.
Approximately 13 hectares of a variety of sprawling parks and open spaces are seamlessly connected throughout the estate to create a more pleasant pedestrian experience. This includes the Park Plaza, the five-hectare main park, linear parks or parks lined with retail establishments, and parkettes. The main park, located along the Evo City boulevard, is the central gathering and amenity place anchoring the entire CBD. Transit stops, bike racks, and seating areas will be incorporated in parkettes which are small parks in strategic areas of the development to enliven the pedestrian experience.
Enriching work and life
Evo City presents a myriad of options for living, learning, working, and pursuing leisure activities, catering to the needs of individuals from all walks of life, whether young professionals, seasoned veterans, or families.
Amidst the calming ambiance of Evo City’s southern enclave, The Residences at Evo City by Alveo Land extends a tranquil oasis from the dynamic energy of the bustling central business district. Evo City has opened its doors to businesses and enterprises, offering commercial lots in its first phase, the West District, which are currently being turned over. An upcoming district is poised to join Evo City’s landscape and is set to launch this month. It is conveniently located along Daang Hari Link Road and Innovation Drive, next to The Residences at Evo City.
Evo City marks a new era for modern central business districts in Kawit, embodying the ideals of innovation, efficiency, and sustainability. It offers Filipinos not only employment or business opportunities but also the chance to elevate their lifestyles in a world-class setting – the premier CBD of the South.
