Businessmen and corporations consider a number of factors on where to set up their shops or offices. Proximity to clients is one. The availability of major infrastructure such as roads, air or sea ports, abundant electricity, and communication lines, is another. A major consideration is the presence of a continuously growing population that will require ever changing products and services.

South of Metro Manila lies the booming Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay corridor. It is the perfect venue to set-up a business or office. For one thing, industrial parks host multinational and export-oriented companies that employ millions of individuals. Infrastructure is continuously improving since these are vital to sustaining the growth of auto, information technology, and related industries in the area.

To this date, however, developments in the area are being undertaken by a number of project proponents and thus call for more synchronicity. While these projects are nevertheless big in scope, the changing business and residential needs of the Filipino call for a new mind-set: A full-fledged project that carefully examines and combines the elements required by business, commercial, residential and leisure areas alike.

Indeed, this is an opportune time for leading property developer Cathay Land to introduce the "satellite city" concept to the Philippines. Cathay Land president Jeffrey Ng explains, "The satellite city concept has been warmly embraced by residents and businesses in other Asian cities such as Beijing, Jakarta, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. Holistic and masterplanned residential enclaves are interconnected with bigger enclaves that host hospitals, schools, malls, office buildings, recreation centers and modern technological parks. With less time navigating through traffic and more time devoted to enjoying the finer things in life, satellite city residents lead quality lifestyles daily.’’

Situated over 250 hectares of a raw, unspoiled environment, the new satellite city aptly dubbed South Forbes Golf City will open a lot of opportunities for companies big and small in the Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay industrial hub. It will be the perfect site for business. The main commercial avenue will give rise to office towers. Cyberparks with the latest high-tech communications facilities will be home to call centers, I.T. companies and business process outsourcing (BPO) firms. After office hours, a stable working client base will flock to restaurants, convenience shops, and beauty cum fitness centers. Needless to say, related small and medium enterprises can take advantage of South Forbes and the vicinity’s growing population.

The biggest come-on for businesses, however, may be the city’s constantly rejuvenated workforce. Ng asserts, "South Forbes is ideal for companies like Cathay Land which believe that people are their best assets. The City hosts various entertainment, leisure, and sports options for residents to unwind after a day’s work. Landscaped parks, clean rivers, and lush greeneries are perfect to spending quality time with the family. Plus, a golf course will also rise for our residents’ utmost enjoyment and to test their mental abilities.

"With inspired, contented individuals reporting for work daily, teams will perform better. Customers will be greeted warmly and served promptly. Executives and business owners can map corporate plans better after a good round of golf. With all of these people elements coming together, it will not be long before companies post outstanding results,’’ he proudly forecasts.

For any astute businessman, South Forbes Golf City beholds a golden opportunity not to be missed. Business, home, and leisure come together in harmony in this idyllic setting. To learn more about the myriad advantages South Forbes Golf City has in store for your enterprise, log on to:
