NextAsia Land Inc. has unveiled three innovative residential communities in South Luzon—Cyprus in Calauan, Estonia in Calamba, and Florence in Lipa. These new projects, spanning a combined 35 hectares, highlight NextAsia’s commitment to affordability, accessibility, and sustainability in the housing market.

With a focus on affordability, modern amenities, and green initiatives, these communities set a high standard for low-cost housing. NextAsia’s new communities are perfect for families and first-time homebuyers looking for affordable, sustainable living options. The developer’s innovative designs and commitment to environmental stewardship are set to redefine residential living in the region.

Since its inception over a decade ago, NextAsia has evolved from fixing up old properties to creating expansive, self-sustaining communities. The company’s latest venture marks a significant milestone, with each community reflecting its commitment to modern living and environmental stewardship.

Three distinct communities

Estonia, Florence, and Cyprus each offer unique features while sharing a common goal of sustainable urban living. Estonia, a five-hectare development, boasts modern amenities to enhance residents’ daily lives. Florence, spread over 10 hectares, features innovative lifestyle facilities. The largest of the three, Cyprus, covers 20 hectares and sets a new standard for integrated community development.

“We aim to provide high-quality, affordable homes that cater to the diverse needs of Filipino families,” said Cris Y. Carreon, President and CEO of NextAsia Land Inc. “These communities not only offer modern amenities but also embody our commitment to sustainability through our Next Green initiative.”

Sustainability in affordable housing is often elusive, but NextAsia’s Next Green initiative brings eco-friendly living within reach for many. Each community features solar-powered streetlights, high-speed broadband internet, and provisions for electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. These amenities ensure that residents enjoy a modern lifestyle while minimizing their environmental footprint.

With housing prices ranging from P1.6 million to P2.5 million, NextAsia’s new communities address the pressing need for affordable housing in the Philippines. The developments are part of the company’s strategy to saturate the market first, in this case, South Luzon, before expanding in other areas. 

“We focus on creating high-quality, accessible homes that meet the market’s demands before expanding further,” said COO Dustin Carreon.

A thrust for sustainability

NextAsia’s dedication to sustainability extends beyond individual amenities. The company is exploring water recycling options and strict waste segregation policies, setting a benchmark for eco-friendly practices in low-cost housing.

NextAsia’s projects also align with the Philippine government’s agenda to address the country’s housing backlog, currently at 6.5 million units. NextAsia supports national efforts to meet this critical need by providing high-quality housing options.

With father-and-son tandem Cris and Dustin at the helm, the Carreon family has steered NextAsia through significant growth. Their leadership reflects a blend of business acumen and a deep commitment to community development. “Our family has always believed in creating spaces that enhance people’s lives,” said the younger Carreon. “Through these projects, we’re realizing that vision on a larger scale.”

With the launch of these three communities, NextAsia continues to set new standards in real estate development in the Philippines. Plans include further expansion into other regions and exploring additional partnerships to enhance their offerings.
