South Forbes quintet collection
The Philippine Star
MANILA, Philippines - Asian geomancy has its five elements. Christianity has the Pentateuch or five books while there are five basic pillars in Islam. A perfect fifth is the most consonant musical harmony and is the basis for most western tuning systems. There are five basic tastes: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami. Even the five-second rule, though quite unhygienic, is a commonly used rule of thumb for dropped food.
But South Forbes Golf City, the country’s largest fully-integrated and all-themed golf resort city at the forefront of the Metro Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay corridor, and recipient of the Best Golf Community Development by the 2007 CNBC International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious property awards programme, and, recently, the Highly Commended Award for Best Development by the 2010 Bloomberg Asia-Pacific Residential Award, has the 5 Clusters of Excellence -- a noteworthy characteristic of this whole-world-in-one city.
Give Me Five! With the creation of South Forbes’ Clusters of Excellence, where the Residential Cluster is complemented by the Education, Business, Wellness, and Leisure Clusters, residents are offered a balanced lifestyle with a place to live, learn, work, shop, and play – all within the city limits.
Five-star. South Forbes’ internationally-themed Residential Cluster is like no other development. Enclaves are themed from the houses down to the village amenities like the clubhouse and sports facilities.
“Our thriving Mediterranean Villas enclave has an exclusive futsal field where the kids can play like Real Madrid, only our regal Châteaux de Paris has 6 themed gardens just like the French capital, and the tropical Phuket Mansions has a clubhouse reminiscent of a Thai vacation,” Ng said.
High Five (Apir)! In general, more education means greater employment options and better job security. “Our Education Cluster will house the best schools and universities from pre-school to post-graduate levels, ensuring that our residents receive proper education to address the fast-changing needs of the present and to face with confidence the unforeseen future,” Ng said.
Presently, within easy walking or traveling distance from every South Forbes home are the Learning Links Academy of Sta. Rosa offering pre-school to secondary levels with a day care center to boot, and the South Forbes City Colleges for global tertiary education. Other renowned institutions nearby are the De La Salle University Canlubang, St. Scholastica’s, Don Bosco, and Brent International School, while Xavier School will open next year.
Nine to Five. The Business Cluster, where residents can establish their businesses or hold careers, will include the South Forbes Cyberpark, featuring world-class, built-to-specification buildings suited for BPOs and call centers, as well as an established business and technology node in Metro Sta. Rosa.
“Gone are the days when parents would come home late to be with their kids because of the heavy traffic congestion all over the metro,” added Ng. “The Cyberpark is well within a few minutes’ walk so families can spend more quality time with each other.”
The Fifth Sense. There is nothing better than a well-deserved spa treatment after a hectic day at work. Fortunately, with the Astoria Plaza - South Forbes Business Hotel and Conference Center which houses the spa and specialist clinics to serve the wellness requirements of the young, adult, and even the retirees from here and abroad, all with be well. Hospitals like the Southern Luzon Hospital and Medical Center will offer nothing but the best medical facilities and treatment.
“We have collaborated with the Southern Luzon Hospital and Medical Center to provide an exclusive healthcare package for South Forbes residents and existing buyers that includes, but not limited to, check-ups and diagnostics, as well as wellness packages that are preventive in nature,” said Ng.
The Fifth Element. With today’s stressful lifestyle, there has been an increasing demand for a variety of leisure options, preferably close to where they live. South Forbes offers its residents an array of choices, more than enough to occupy every day of the week. The commercial hub of South Forbes is its City Center where residents can wine-and-dine or shop-‘til-you-drop in its many establishments. They can also burn the extra calories at the South Forbes Sports and Country Club.
