A ‘live-work-play-learn’ sustainable development, Pueblo de Oro Townscapes is part of a 274-hectare mixed-use complex with four hectares of commercial area and a one-hectare educational hub. It is adjacent to a 232-hectare industrial park for light manufacturing developed by PDO’s sister company, Science Park of the Philippines.

The project’s unique design improves energy efficiency by 20% and water efficiency by 51%. Moreover, it purposefully highlights the natural character of the property with its 50 percent-high allocation of open space and roads against the total land area.
