South Park District in Alabang, Muntinlupa City, is a pocket masterplanned, mixed-use development by Ayala Land, Inc. set to change the landscape not just in the said district, but in southern Metro Manila.

Pursuit of Passion counts the ways:

1. It is changing the way we live in a mixed-use development.

South Park District integrates residential, commercial projects, and even green spaces in one urbanized area.

By definition, a mixed-use development is a real estate development consisting of two or more commercial, cultural, institutional, industrial, or residential properties with the following key elements of a Live-Work-Play environment:

  • Creates a walkable community for its residents and guests, with uninterrupted pedestrian connections;
  • Fosters compatibility, density, and integration of land uses, and;
  • Provides at least three significant, income-producing uses.

South Park District is Avida Land’s first pocket, mixed-use development located along National Road in Barangay Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Spanning a whopping 6.6 hectares, South Park District will bring in a mix of residential condominiums, a regional mall, and office buildings anchored by a Central Park, all fitted together to create an environment where residents (and even guests) can live, work, and play.

2. It is changing the standard of what a city should look and be like.

Muntinlupa City is largely an urban settlement, with most of its commercial development concentrated in Alabang—home to a number of commercial real estate projects and the high-end exclusive village of Ayala Alabang.

South Park District, however, intends to change that. Imagine a mini-city with the best of retail, dining, entertainment concepts and cinemas: Ayala Malls South Park for all retail and shopping needs, the South Park Corporate Center as your next place of work, and Central Park to dine or hang out with your family or friends.

Southerners can look forward to settling in ready for occupancy units at Avida Towers Altura, the condo offering at South Park District, which is only a short walk away. All these retail, office, leisure, and residential real estate components make up an ideal, integrated community you’d want to call home.

3. It is changing the common mindset about commuting.

A transport terminal is accessible to office and BPO employees working in the area.

When needing to travel from one place to another, commuting can be a hassle if you need to take more than one transportation. It can even be too hot or inconvenient (hello, rainy season) to walk to your destination, even if it’s just ten minutes away.

In South Park District, the integration of residential, retail, and business areas allows a smooth flow of pedestrians that require little to no use of transportation. It also allows people not just to explore points of interest in the development, but also engage with each other, creating a vibrant sense of community among homeowners, visitors, mall-goers, and corporate employees. Covered walkways, waiting areas, pedestrian paths, and lanes will provide enough convenience against elements like the rain and traffic.

For visitors or employees who need to commute in and out of South Park District, South Park Mall will have its own public transport terminal, a dedicated taxi bay and lay-by area for public utility buses and jeepneys.

4. It is changing the way we introduce green into modern developments.

If one should look at a geographical map of Metro Manila, there are only a few areas where people are afforded with green spaces. South Park District will feature one of the biggest green spaces in Muntinlupa.

The Central Park will serve as South Park District’s centerpiece, ideal for community gathering, outdoor recreational activities and weekend markets. The Park also features iconic art pieces that inspire vibrancy, movement, and playfulness from world-renowned sculptor Reginald Yuson. On the quieter side of the development is the exclusive residential park that can be accessed by residents of Avida Towers Altura.
