Located at the south of Metro Manila, Alabang is a place whose name is synonymous with its well known and prominent residential properties, businesses, industrial and commercial establishments. It is a fortress of commerce and a booming economy.

Ever wonder why this sleek region of Muntinlupa is targeted by a lot of businessmen and developers? Let’s explore it in this article and know why Alabang is ideal for your next business location too.

Brief History

Established in 1980, Alabang was a farming location before it became the barangay in the second district of Muntinlupa. Its name came from the river passing through the area called “Rio de Alban”. Alabang experienced a boom during the late 1990s with the development of many high-end and large-scale commercial real estate projects. Filinvest is one of the developers that helped transform the area’s entire landscape.

Alabang is a place that has it all — from its premier business districts that bring in big companies from all over the country and the world to its large shopping malls, and car dealerships. It has the perfect mix of work and life with indoor and outdoor activities for residents of the area. Alabang is also a gateway for transportation in the South, letting commuters quickly move through their many terminals. As a result, this gives easy access to areas like Laguna and Cavite.

Landmark and Conveniences
