Westborough - LOCATION
The main thoroughfare from Sta. Rosa to Tagaytay is a vital artery, a bustling corridor that makes for easy trade and transport between the South and Metro Manila. It’s a fresh and emergent locality: its accessibility has allowed for communities to thrive within its fold. With its wide open spaces, it’s prime territory for true Southern living.
The highway that connects Sta. Rosa to Tagaytay is a crucial artery of commerce and transportation between Metro Manila and the South. Westborough’s address in Barangay Inchican, Silang, Cavite can be accessed from Metro Manila via the SLEX (South Luzon Expressway). Silang is approximately 45 kilometres south of Manila. Commuters from Metro Manila can take the Mamplasan (Greenfield Exit) or Sta Rosa Exit, while residents of Makati City and Bonifacio Global City will find that Westborough is only a short drive away from their office or residence.
The municipality of Silang is categorized as a first class landlocked municipality in the eastern section of Cavite province, boasting a population of 248,085 people (based on a 2015 census) in an area of 209.4 square kilometres (i.e. a density of 1,200 inhabitants per square kilometre). The majority of its residents are Roman Catholics. Besides Westborough, it is home to the Philippine National Police Academy, PDEA Academy, Cavite State University, the Maguyam Industrial Complex, the Daichi Industrial Complex, and the head office of the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction head office. It is known for its cool and refreshing climate, and is now part of the Manila conurbation expanding southward toward Lipa City. Silang is bound by General Trias, Dasmariñas and General Mariano Alvarez (GMA) in the north, by Amadeo in the west, and Tagaytay in the south.
Its proximity and accessibility to the urban centre provides an ample amount of economic opportunities, while the availability of wide open spaces allows the possibility of refined Southern living. Westborough’s strategic location allows it to benefit from the proximity of the affluent and growing neighbourhoods of Ayala Westgrove Heights, Wedge Woods, Cathay Land’s South Forbes Mansions and South Forbes Villas, Chateaux de Paris, Miami, Sta. Rosa Estates I and Sta. Rosa Estates II. It also benefits from being located nearby several key business and industrial centers: Laguna Technopark; NUVALI Lakeside Evozone; Honda Cars Philippines; Toyota Motors Philippines; Ford Motor Company; Coca Cola Bottlers Philippines; Monde Nissin Corporation.
Paulo Ong, division manager for Alveo Land’s Project Development Group, noted that Westborough investors will have access to a captive market that exceeds 6,500 households. He also estimated that the Laguna Technopark industrial estate (which is located 5 minutes and 3 kilometres away from Westborough) alone employs over 101,000 working professionals.
Westborough also benefits from being in close proximity to several hotels and prime retail and leisure destinations.
