Sustainable development has been the guiding principle in present and future developments in today’s highly industrialized world. The truly sustainable cities of the 21st century are those that address the quality-of-life issues and environmental protection. This is the challenge that faces all cities and nations today.

South Forbes Golf City, the country’s largest fully-integrated and all-themed golf resort city at the forefront of the Metro Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay corridor, adheres to the principles of sustainable development and sustainable growth as reflected in its planning – through the 5 Clusters of Excellence where the Residential Cluster is supported by the Education, Business, Wellness, and Leisure Clusters.

Global villages. The heart of every community is the individual and, by extension, the family. Families need nurturing and no better place to care for a family than at home. Every South Forbes home has been designed to answer the present and future needs of its residents as they grow with new — even high-tech — requirements.

Close to the Filipino heart is the modern Asian aesthetic that achieves a synthesis of styles that traces, yet transcends, their oriental origins — exotic to the eye yet soothing to the soul. Bali Mansions, Nirwana Bali, and Phuket Mansions define resort living in a suburban setting with airy and spacious family areas and restful private spaces. The minimalism of Tokyo Mansions is a testament to a simple and content lifestyle.

South Forbes, as a global village, features Western aesthetics of which has become part of Filipino architecture today. As warm as the Iberian coast is the Mediterranean Villas with quaint Spanish-inspired homes. Next door is the regal Châteaux de Paris – fit for royalty. Summer lovers will adore Miami, a village of Art Deco and Moderne homes as well as a beach-inspired clubhouse.

Condo living is at its best with the sleek Scandia Suites for the fuss-free person and the Golf View Terraces which fronts the golf course.

Global network. The Cyberpark, the heart of South Forbes’ Business Cluster, will feature world-class, built-to-specification buildings suited for BPOs and other businesses. With the advances in information and communication technology, including the Business Cluster’s close proximity to home, the need for much travelling is greatly reduced as well as the environmental threats it poses.
