Kawit: Where Another Side of Cavite is Emerging
Evo City is envisioned as a new central business district to rise in Cavite

New transportation infrastructures in place or fast emerging have placed Kawit, Cavite as a prominent destination south of Metro Manila—both for home buyers or leisure seekers.

A historic town with quaint points of interest, Kawit is just some 25 kilometers from the heart of Manila. The 14-kilometer Cavite Expressway (Cavitex), its main road connector to the metro, makes Kawit accessible and a convenient place to live in.

Given its winsome location, Kawit thus has drawn many forward-looking property developers to initiate projects in this first-class municipality. The more prominent among these initiatives is the mixed-use, master-planned estate Evo City of Ayala Land, Inc.

New Calabarzon Gateway

Evo City is envisioned as a new central business district in Cavite. It cornered a prime 200-hectare site toward the eastern side of Kawit, off the stretch of Daang Hari Baypoint Estates. This strategic road corridor links toward north to Centennial Road, a gateway enabling access to Cavitex onward to Metro Manila in less than one hour.

Daang Hari also serves as a southeast road connector to the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (Calax) now under construction and expected to open in 2020. When completed, Calax, would link Evo City and its future residents to South Luzon Expressway and Star Tollway, gateways to the popular attractions in the provinces of Laguna, Batangas, and Quezon.

Conversely, this network of highways from the south, as well as Cavitex from the north, puts Kawit and its new master-planned community Evo City on the radar of home hunters, business locators, and entrepreneurs.

Rising from an Urban Template

This planned Kawit CBD follows the template of successful Ayala Land master-planned developments.

Its road network is likewise designed for a bike- and pedestrian-friendly experience with 19 hectares reserved as parks and open spaces. Its main park alone is set for 5.5 hectares. Small pocket parks or “parkettes” are integrated too in the landscape of Evo City to provide pedestrians a more pleasant tour of the CBD.

Evo City will likewise provide for its future residents and visitors’ fundamental needs, with institutions like a hospital, church, and school included in its development. The residential component of this CBD is reserved in a 41-hectare slice directly adjacent to the estate good for a total of 760 lots.

For folks who want to live in the Evo City estate, it comes easy to adopt Kawit as their own home community. After all, this town is where the Philippines as a nation was born. Visits to its many historical sites, such as the Aguinaldo Mansion, Shrine, and its Freedom Park, certainly promote a high sense of pride for residents of Kawit.

Reinforcing such a high sense of community, buying a home strategically located near Evo City would allow a household not only to partake of this development’s various amenities. Living close to this rising new CBD in Kawit also creates the pride and fulfillment of becoming a part of the growth in this other side of Cavite.
