From an old mango orchard, Ayala Land saw a community that answers the need for quality homes in a suburban setting, giving rise to the Ayala Alabang Village, Alabang Town Center, and the Madrigal Business Park.
Recognizing the possibilities in the Visayas and Mindanao regions, Ayala Land, through its subsidiary, Cebu Holdings, transformed a golf course into the first business district in the Southern Philippines, the Cebu Business Park followed by the Asiatown IT Park. Guided by a commitment to pioneer the future, Ayala Land begins to develop large-scale, masterplanned, fully-integrated and sustainable developments.
Ayala Land, together with partner Evergreen Holdings, invested and revitalized Fort Bonifacio, a former military base, creating Bonifacio Global City, with its ideal balance of live, work and play.

Gotianun, Sr., FDC is the holding company of the Gotianun Family. Originally engaged in the small-scale financing of second hand cars in 1955, the Gotianun Family’s business later expanded into consumer finance in partnerships with foreign institutions such as Chase Manhattan Bank, Westinghouse Electric Corporation and Ford Philippines. By the early 1980’s, the Gotianun Family’s Filinvest Credit Corporation had become one of the leading consumer finance companies in the Philippines in terms of assets, and the “Filinvest” name had become well-recognized in the Philippines. The Gotianun Family entered the real estate business in 1967 through the incorporation of Filinvest Realty Corporation, which engaged in the development of residential subdivisions.

FLI was incorporated on November 24, 1989 as Citation Homes, Inc. and changed its name to FLI on July 12, 1993. It began commercial operations in August 1993 after FDC spun off its
real estate operations and transferred all related assets and liabilities to FLI in exchange for shares in FLI. FLI was listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) on October 25, 1993. FDC remains FLI’s largest shareholder, beneficially owning approximately 51% of FLI’s outstanding common shares and all of its outstanding preferred shares.

In recent years, FLI has expanded its residential business to include other income segments (high-end) and themed residential projects with a leisure component, such as farm estates and developments anchored by sports and resort clubs.
FLI has substantial experience in developing and introducing new formats to the residential real estate market. The Company intends to be at the forefront of market changes by continually innovating and introducing new project formats to anticipate and meet market demands. Recent innovations includes:
(a) Homes situated on small lots designed to be expanded vertically through the addition of a second storey without requiring the occupants to vacate the home while the second storey is being added.
(b) The “Entrepreneurial Village” or “Asenso Village” concept which is the result of a collaborative effort with the Government to allow entrepreneurs with small- and medium-size businesses to live and work in a residential development with access to Government agencies that assist small businesses.
FLI is also a pioneer in the development of very large master-planned township developments which provide a convenient mix of commercial, industrial and residential uses.

The corporate city is home to key anchors such as the Asian Hospital and a fast growing office base in the Northgate Cyberzone. The second busiest transport terminal in Metro Manila is in the immediate vicinity, making FCC a major gateway for commuters going into and out of Metro Manila from the south.
