PRIMED by various developments now taking place, San Fernando in Pampanga has, so far, become one of the progressive component cities in the country to date that not only investors are keeping tab on, but also homebuyers who would like to settle in.

Gianna model: The biggest in terms of floor space, this model unit is designed for house buyers requiring larger accommodation.

Seeing its growth potentials, Laguna-based real-estate firm P.A. Alvarez Properties and Development Corp. (P.A. Properties) has already made its presence felt here by developing its latest horizontal project, called the Bridgepointe Place.

Located in Barangay Del Rosario, this residential project leverages on San Fernando’s economic dynamism, as it recently bagged second place in the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index for 2017 of the National Competitiveness Council.

The Pampanga’s capital, likewise, was ranked fourth overall among the component cities in the Philippines.


These recognitions, indeed, validate the appeal of the city as a premium real-estate location not only in the province itself, but throughout Central Luzon.

“A growing community located in a commercially robust area like the City of San Fernando makes Bridgepointe Place an investment attraction to the economic and open-market housing segments,” P.A. Properties President Jonathan G. Lu said.

Enclaved residences: A 33-hectare real-estate
project, which has lots ranging from 40 to 300 sq m.

Ideal dwelling place with abundant space

RISING at a 33-hectare property, Bridgepointe Place’s secured real-estate enclave offers 1,370 lots ranging from 40 square meters (sq m) to 300 sq m.

They come with row houses, bungalows, 2-story units and executive townhouses suited for future-residents’ requirements.

The development’s three model units were unveiled earlier this year, including the Iliana, a two-bedroom model bungalow that can conveniently accommodate a family of five.

A more spacious model unit is Salina—a 2-story abode that features two bedrooms. It is fit for a growing family, since it’s expandable to have three rooms.

The biggest is the Gianna model unit in terms of floor space. It is designed for house buyers requiring larger accommodation.

Price points start at P582,000 within the competitive economic and open-market housing rates.

Amenities are aplenty

WITH active and fun-loving future residents in mind, P.A. Properties complements the varied home options with an open space for children’s playground and a basketball court in Phase 1A.

Simultaneously with the new model-units launch was the blessing of the Phase 2A entrance gate of Bridgepointe Place.

This was already put in place because security of the future residents is a top concern for the real-estate company.

Meanwhile, a multipurpose hall in Phase 3A is targeted to be finished in the last quarter of 2017.

The projects initial phase, on the other hand, will have a swimming pool within the gazebo area by the second quarter of next year.

Strategic location

HOMEOWNERS at Bridgepointe Place stand to benefit from the advantage of San Fernando being a growing agro-industrial-commercial metropolis within the Manila Clark-Subic Economic Triangle.

Since the Tourism Convergence Road traverses to Bridgepointe Place in Brgy. Del Rosario, it is now easier for the locals, tourists and potential house buyers to visit the component city of Pampanga, and see and feel what it has to offer.

With various manufacturing locators and big companies holding regional offices and operations here, job opportunities abound for the local residents.

What’s more, the city is a thriving site for commerce and trade. As the province’s retail center, they may opt to shop for their supplies either at Watermart or SM City Pampanga—both conveniently located for those living in BridgePointe Place.

This residential project is about 11 kilometers from Angeles City, thus making it near also to other commercial, entertainment and retail establishments.

It is, likewise, accessible to health centers and hospitals. Educational institutions are just within the 5-kilometer radius.

The first-class component city is also home to four television networks, two radio stations and five local newspapers. Government and military agencies also located their regional offices in the city.

Bridgepointe Place will also be accessible to the future site of the city government’s selected satellite offices like the Office of the Senior Citizens and the Disaster Risk Management; a sports complex and a city park.

The real-estate project will also be near to the upcoming regional offices of the Department of Education and the Department of Tourism.

Since San Fernando is known as the “Christmas Capital of the Philippines,” residents of the Bridgepointe Place can witness its thriving lantern-making industry.

Those living in this prime real-estate project can also enjoy the annual crowd-drawer during the Lenten season, the “Via Cruzis,” which portrays the passion and death of Jesus Christ.

“The emergence of major infrastructure is expected to increase demand for residential units in the City of San Fernando, thereby making P.A. Properties’ Bridgepointe Place a prime investment to those wanting to locate in this growing city,” Lu said.

For 23 years, P.A. Properties has already built more than 17,000 housing units. The real-estate firm continues to embark on strategic expansion efforts to further build 15,000 more housing units in the next five years, thereby creating “comfortable, safe and joyful Filipino communities.”
