FILINVEST CITY is aiming for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) Plan Version Four certification from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
“We want Filinvest City to be an experiential CBD (central business district), for residents and workers to experience the city at a ground level-that their daily lives won’t end at their offices or homes, but rather extend to the parks and other play components provided for them,” Don Ubaldo, vice president for townships of Filinvest Alabang, Inc. said in a statement.
LEED-ND recognizes large-scale townships that are able to protect and enhance health, natural environment and quality of life. It looks into sustainability of the development through a set of growth, urbanization, and green construction principles.
Filinvest City is a 244-hectare masterplanned development located in Muntinlupa City. Its residential communities include Vivant Flats, La Vie Flats, and Bristol at Parkway Place.
Botanika Nature Residences has already received the certification as a Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence (BERDE). — V.M.P.Galang
