New Beginnings with a New Name: Avida
In 1990, Ayala Land started a new division with several properties in what they call the ‘growth corridor’ in southern Metro Manila. They named it Laguna Properties Holdings, Inc., or LPHI, where Ayala Land redefined the property market. They did this by offering multiple, new options for their customers. LPHI opened the doors in property ownership with its early projects in Sta. Rosa, Laguna like Santarosa Estates and Hacienda Sta. Monica in Batangas. This was done since Ayala Land saw unprecedented growth in the middle class sector of the country.
In 2006, LPHI morphed into Avida Land Corp., to embody a new purpose with LPHI’s brand evolution. Avida stands for the concept, “Celebrate Life”. It comes from the Latin words ave, which means celebrate, and vida, which means life. It began to set its sights on other areas in the country starting from its developments in Laguna, all thanks to its Ayala heritage.
Thus, Avida now has become the name of this dynamic property developer. It continues to reinvent the segment and of course, transform lives. The new name signaled a new boldness with new offerings, forging ahead as a company. And so, its project names carry the new brand: Avida Communities, Avida Residences, Avida Settings, and Avida Towers. By 2010, the company launched major projects to expand the range of Avida’s multiple offerings, even adding Avida Estates and Avida Village. Through all of its offerings, Avida delivers value through masterful execution and careful planning, staying true to the legacy of Ayala Land, its mother company.
Its core are its five pillars: accessibility, unique features and amenities, quality assurance, stress-free buying, and a relaxing living experience. All these are integrated in every Avida condominium and house and lot developments. Today, Avida has become the developer of choice for the rising middle class.
