GENERAL SANTOS, Philippines, —SOCCSKSARGEN is set to experience a new standard of living as Alsons Development and Investment Corporation (Alsons Dev) expands its property development operations to Sarangani, with the launch of its newest project, Avia Estate.

Alsons Dev introduces its first project outside of Davao, Avia Estate in Alabel, Sarangani. Avia Estate is a mixed-use master-planned development that offers a live-work-play environment, enabling SOCCSKSARGEN residents to thrive.

A subsidiary of the Alcantara Group, one of the largest Filipino-owned conglomerates with over 60 years of experience and 20 major companies in various industries, Alsons Dev has long been a trusted partner for the growth of Southern Mindanao. Its properties in Davao City have become synonymous with quality, where it has established a solid record of building top-notch residential and commercial projects that have transformed the lifestyle of Dabawenyos. With Alsons Dev’s entry into Sarangani, it promises to further reinvigorate the SOCCSKSARGEN economic landscape. 

“Alsons Dev’s heritage is built on a strong track record of building and nurturing residential communities and commercial properties that generations of Dabawenyos have enjoyed, and we are excited to bring our experience in Davao to Sarangani and continue this tradition of growth,” said Rosie Dominguez, Alsons Dev’s Executive Vice President. “We believe that we will help redefine the standard of living in Sarangani by providing high-quality living and commercial spaces where Mindanaoans can flourish,” she added.

Avia Estate is a mixed-use township located in Alabel, Sarangani that offers master-planned and high-quality living and commercial spaces for residents in the region. The new central district was launched recently at a high-profile event at the Grand Summit Hotel attended by Mayor Vic Paul Salarda of Alabel, renowned urban planner and master planner of Avia Estate Architect Paulo Alcazaren, local government representatives, media, partners, and locators.

“Sarangani has always been a valued region to the Alcantara Family because we believe in its potential for growth and development,” said Miguel Dominguez, Director of Alsons Dev. “We want to be part of that growth, and we are committed to helping lead Mindanao’s progress by creating a new lifestyle destination that will serve as a growth hub and create more opportunities for the people residing here.”

Strategically located in Alabel, Avia Estate features prime residential communities, first-class leisure amenities, wide retail and commercial offerings, reputable educational institutions, and government support facilities—all in one address. 

The first development within the new township is the Narra Park Residences Avia, which builds on the success of Narra Park Residences in Davao under the Nurtura Land & Home brand. Designed to offer the best of countryside living and modern conveniences, Narra Avia offers a lush, secure, and conducive environment for starting a family or settling down in a vibrant and secure community. “We believe that it will be the ideal choice for Sarangani residents who want to enjoy a serene environment while aspiring to meet their dreams for themselves and their families,” says Dominguez.

Alongside this, Alsons Dev has forged a partnership with The Abba’s Orchard, the country’s largest and most esteemed Montessori school, to ensure that quality education is within easy reach of residents in the region. It has also partnered with the Local Government Unit of Sarangani to build a Public Safety and Security Complex, which will house police and fire stations—bringing essential government services closer to the community. These linkages highlight Alsons Dev’s continuing commitment to working with the community in the development of the region.

“All of us in the Local Government of Alabel are committed to working closely with Alsons Dev to ensure that the needs of the community are met,” said Alabel Mayor Vic Paul Salarda. “We can assure you that we will be here to support the company in this project. We are confident that this partnership will lead to many opportunities that will improve the lives of our residents and put Alabel on the map as a dynamic growth hub in Sarangani.”
