As the first luxury subdivision of Robinsons Land Corporation, Forbes Estates is crafted with an attention to both design and function: located in the bustling city of Lipa, Batangas, the 21-hectare enclave is the perfect address for those looking for privacy but don’t want to eschew the conveniences of city living.
Each lot, ranging from 500 square meters and above, provides enough space for those who want to live their lives near nature as the manicured and landscaped roads and spaces provide fresh air and room for movement.
Ten lots occupy every hectare of the development, suitable for those who want a quieter life but not complete isolation. The architecture is designed by Arch Haus Asia, interiors designed by Chat Fores known for her elegant, artistic, playful, and unconventional design philosophy. Meanwhile, the property’s lush and viridescent landscaping is done by Crearis.
At the center of the enclave sits The Forbes Club, a one-hectare amenity area–a size equal to two football fields placed side-by-side–that serves as the heart of the property. Such was the focus on creating an oasis in the middle of the busy city that 12% of the total selling area is dedicated to amenities.
Future homeowners can satisfy their active lifestyle with jogging paths, a children’s play area, a tennis court, a covered basketball court, and a lap and children’s swimming pool. Those who want to enjoy more of the nature Forbes Estate has to offer can do so with an open lawn perfect for families who want open space for movement or leisurely picnics, a dog park for pawrents who want space for their pets to move around, a mini orchard and greenhouse, and tree-lined walkways.
And because Forbes Estates is located in Lipa City, Batangas, conveniences such as hospitals, malls, and even Metro Manila is within reach. Robinsons Place Lipa, a full-service shopping mall with numerous shopping options, Robinsons anchor merchants (Department Store, Supermarket, etc.), and 3D cinemas are minutes away from the residences (4.7 km from the development). And soon, a Community Lifestyle Center will rise in the property itself: The Veranda Lipa. Future homeowners may look forward to having cafes, casual dining, and stores such as The Marketplace, Robinsons Appliances, and Pet Lovers Centre right at their doorstep.
Lipeños are no strangers to the opulent lifestyle as other luxury properties situated within the city of Lipa include the 152-room luxury hotel Dusit Princess Lipa (the first international hotel to open in the city), and golf and country clubs such as Mount Malarayat and Summit Point.
Also located within the city is the award-winning The Farm at San Benito, one of the top health and wellness destinations in the world offering holistic treatments conducted by licensed and competent doctors, nutritionists, therapists, living food chefs, yoga teachers and fitness coaches, all within a 48-hectare lush jungle.
Forbes Estate is conveniently located near the Balete Lipa Star Toll Exit (2.6 km) and the Tambo Exit (6.5 km) making travel in and out of the province a breeze.
Lipa City is a first class city in Batangas and its close proximity to Metro Manila (a mere 86 kilometers or one-and-a-half hour drive via the South Luzon Expressway or Star Tollway) makes it very accessible thus making it a key city in the province of Batangas.
The city is also fast becoming a major institutional and administrative center, a commercial center, a financial hub, and a residential center, which is perfect for those who want to settle permanently in a locale outside of Metro Manila.
Climate in Lipa City is generally cool as it is approximately 1,200 feet above sea level while the presence of Mt. Maculot and Mt. Malarayat serves as protection for typhoons.
Forbes Estates is Robinsons Land Corporation’s entry to the luxury horizontal enclaves after its highly successful entry to luxury properties in 2019 with Aurelia Residences in Bonifacio Global City (a joint venture with Shang Properties Inc.) and 2020’s The Velaris Residences in Bridgetowne, Quezon City (a joint venture with Hongkong Land).
Robinsons Land is one of the country’s leading property developers and has been instrumental in reimagining the potential of malls, hotels, office buildings, horizontal housing, and residential condominium development. The company is committed to providing communities built with impeccable quality that offer a distinct living experience to homeowners and the freedom to live life in their own terms.
Forbes Estates Lipa’s turnover is scheduled in 2023.
