DEEPLY rooted in understanding the needs of the Filipino family, Pro-Friends has envisioned a one-of-a-kind township community that will enable families to bond with each other.
Starting with its first phase in 2007, Lancaster has evolved into a master-planned community that spans more than 1,400 hectares, covering Kawit, General Trias and Imus, Cavite. Situated near the Manila-Cavite Expressway (Cavitex), families now have an option to own reasonably priced homes in a unique township near Metro Manila that focuses on the most important aspect of family lives…to live, learn, work, play and worship.
LANCASTER NEW CITY currently has two- and three-story townhomes, and two-story single-attached homes designed for young professionals, start-up families and bigger growing families. Each home has sufficient space for dwellers to comfortably move around inside the house.
In September Lancaster New City introduced six new Modern Asian-inspired homes that celebrate the use of light and space. Its high ceilings and windows are created to allow more light and ventilation inside the rooms. In consideration of importance of the Internet to any growing family, four of the new house models (Briana, Chessa, Mabelle and Adelle) have ready outlets for home Internet cables.
Residents of selected house models have their very own Family Courtyard or Family Enclaves, extra spaces in the back or front of each single-attached home where children may safely play or for special private gatherings.
More than just providing homes, Lancaster New City has made high-quality, affordable education accessible to its residents. Saint Edward Integrated School (SEIS), a school established inside Lancaster New City in 2012, gives families the option to send their children to a school that prides in raising globally competitive students with a strong sense of character. It has a dynamic project-oriented curriculum, which aims to address the needs of different types of learners. It has life labs, clubs and organizations that allow students to develop their talents and equipped them with real-life skills. Moving forward, SEIS will have institutes of learning that is generally a mere 400-meter walk from the nearest residential area.
Inside Lancaster New City is the pioneer IT Park of Cavite and Pro-Friends’ first office IT park development, SuntechiPark, which is designed to allow residents to work close to home, thus giving them more time to spend with the family. Lancaster New City is also developing its transport system that will bring residents from their place of work to their homes in less time.
Lancaster New City will also build Downtown Lancaster, a 25-hectare commercial-business-lifestyle district that will provide retail and leisure activities to both office workers and its residents, who will enjoy the convergence of SuntechiPark with the Square, its commercial area and Central Greens.
The Square will be a sprawling commercial center that houses several commercial and retail establishments. In 2013 the Square opened its first commercial building and houses, selection of restaurants, wellness boutiques and other service centers.
Central Greens will be a place of relaxation with its tree-shaded pathways, pocket gardens and children’s playground.
At the heart of Lancaster New City is the Church of the Holy Family. Built in 2012, the church became a place of worship where families attend Sunday Mass, hold their wedding vows and ceremonies, or celebrate the simbang gabi tradition.
