Envisioned to be a premier urban center, where residents experience suburban living while enjoying the benefits of a vibrant economy, the city of Santa Rosa in Laguna has become one of the hottest residential destinations in the country.
Aside from the tranquil lifestyle, more people are said to be moving to Santa Rosa because of the career opportunities in the area. Laguna accommodates a wide gamut of industries, and Greenfield City has been one of the developments at the forefront of creating sustainable hubs where industries and locators thrive.
The “city within a park” is home to landmark business, commercial, and industrial centers namely the Sta. Rosa Business Park and Greenfield Auto Park.
The Sta. Rosa Business Park caters to commercial and institutional establishments such as offices, hospitals, schools, and a hotel.
Meanwhile, the Philippine Economic Zone Authority-accredited Greenfield Auto Park houses locators from the automotive, telecommunications, industrial, information technology, and other industries.
Some of the Auto Park’s noteworthy locators include Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, Automotive Interiors Corp., Visteon Philippines Inc., Agrispecialist Inc., Cleanpak Inc., Silgan White Cap South East Asia Inc., and Emperador Distillers, to name a few.
“Lucrative jobs and competitive salary offers are no longer limited to inner Metro Manila. Opportunities have streamed down outside the metropolis and to its adjacent provinces, providing alternative options for those who live or are considering moving to the South,” shares Greenfield Development Corporation executive vice president and general manager Duane A.X. Santos.
Job openings in these industrial parks range from entry level staff positions to managerial functions in multinational or foreign companies and Filipino-owned businesses.
Greenfield said one of the advantages of working and living in the south is the opportunity to enjoy work-life balance—where one can pursue a rewarding career while having enough time to engage in social pursuits, personal hobbies, or family bonding.
One of the developer’s projects inside the “city” is Zadia, a midrise residential community that devotes 84 percent of its space to nature.
“Lush gardens, tree-lined roads, parks and open spaces will be the identifying character of this development, driven by its promise of providing daily ‘greenspiration’ to residents,” GDC said in a statement.
It has an array of amenities that encourage wellness and relaxation such as a swimming pool, an indoor basketball court, outdoor basketball and tennis courts, a grand clubhouse, and other facilities and common areas.
