The fusion of two distinct identities can lead to various outcomes, but it’s always an exciting development to see what may emerge, especially when we combine the best qualities of each one. This fusion is now embodied in Federal Land NRE Global, Inc., or simply FNG, a new entity born from the combined expertise of the Philippines’ Federal Land, Inc. and Japan’s Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd.
In essence, FNG represents a potent blend capable of reshaping the Philippine landscape and simultaneously elevating urban living. FNG brings together Federal Land’s formidable five-decade real estate expertise with the innovation and design sensibility courtesy of Nomura.
Led by Federal Land Chairman Alfred Ty and Nomura Real Estate Chair Eiji Kutsukake, FNG sees a combined century of impressive local and international real estate experience, outstanding business performance, and comprehensive expertise in all aspects of property development and management. Through Federal Land NRE Global Inc., Federal Land and Nomura Real Estate Development bring their respective stellar capabilities with the intent to elevate the way urban developments are undertaken.
Federal Land, Inc., with over five decades of experience, stands as an influential contributor to the Philippine urban landscape. As a subsidiary of GT Capital Holdings, the company has consistently redefined city living through innovative residential developments, commercial spaces, office buildings, hotels, and integrated communities. Its presence within the GT Capital Holdings conglomerate further solidifies its position as a driving force in the industry.
On the other hand, Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd., with its roots extending back to the ‘50s, boasts a strong reputation in Japan’s real estate industry. Engaged in a range of activities including residential development, leasing, investment management, property brokerage, and facility management, the company is a paragon of industry diversification. With a history of resolving societal challenges through its offerings, Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd. has embarked on overseas expansion while maintaining a steadfast commitment to excellence.

“This is a perfect marriage of vision and values. We share a common long-term outlook, anchored on creating world-class developments that enriches the way people live. It’s a true synergy wherein we raise each other’s performance, whether it be in architecture, technology, construction, management, and most importantly, to the quality of service rendered to the market,” said Ty.
“We aim to create real-estate solutions that will elevate the living experience of customers to a higher level. We will be introducing thoughtfully designed masterplans, innovative features, and sustainable solutions, fit for today’s evolving and modernizing lifestyle. That’s the vision of FNG.”

The new company aims to make life flourish through the creation of sustainable urban communities that are thoughtfully designed to enrich the lives of Filipinos.
Redefining Urban Living
At the core of FNG’s endeavors lie its brand pillars and a visionary approach aimed at redefining urban living.
“FNG’s brand pillars reflect the harmonious amalgamation of Japanese innovation and Filipino sensibility. These pillars, underscored by principles of sustainability and forward-thinking design, guide the development of each project,” said Yusuke Hirano, vice chairman of FNG.
First is “Japanese,” drawing inspiration from Nomura’s heritage and expertise in developing residential developments. Thus, FNG aims to provide the next level of living experience to the local real estate market.
“From project concept and design, the seamless integration of nature into the development, to the Japanese cultural trait of putting clients at the forefront, FNG prioritizes the creation of spaces that cater to the diverse needs of modern urban dwellers,” added Thomas Mirasol, president of FNG.
Second is “innovation.” FNG will integrate Japanese innovation into its projects through well thought-of design, architecture, and features. This infusion of innovation results in developments that are not only visually appealing but also ensures a seamless and comfortable lifestyle for residents.
Last, is “collaboration” — FNG will continue to forge partnerships with local and global brands, companies, and individuals to better enhance its future communities.
FNG’s commitment to redefining urban living manifests through its two noteworthy projects that are much anticipated by the market and will soon be launched this year.

First is Yume at Riverpark Cavite, a residential neighborhood within Federal Land’s Riverpark community, which introduces a Japanese-inspired haven for starting families. With direct access from the future CALAX Interchange, Yume offers lot sizes ranging from 300 to 527 sq.m. with prices starting from P15 million. This residential enclave harmonizes the aesthetics of Japanese design with contemporary requirements. The future neighborhood’s aspiration is to create a rejuvenating environment for families to thrive.
Second is The Observatory located at Mandaluyong City and right across the Pasig River from BGC. The 4.5-ha mixed-use development, which will have residential, retail, and office components, offers a unique unobstructed view of the BGC skyline. Its strategic location will also have future residents within close proximity to the major central business districts of Makati, BGC, and Ortigas. Catering to diverse lifestyles, the first residential tower of The Observatory, Sora Tower, will offer studio, one, two, and three-bedroom units, with prices ranging from P8.7 million for the Studios to P49.2 million for the three bedrooms.

There are more projects in the pipeline, including developments in the Manila Bay Area, Cavite, and Cebu. This is just the beginning of plans carved and set to realize in the next 30 years, as FNG aims to establish its presence in the country and raise the bar for property development.
“FNG emerges as a pioneering force with a shared mission of creating vibrant, sustainable, and innovative communities. The convergence of Federal Landand Nomura Real Estate is more than a partnership; it’s a promise of a new lifestyle, a higher standard of living, and a future defined by quality and excellence,” said Hirano.
With FNG’s vision and brand pillars at the forefront, the fusion of Japanese and Filipino sensibilities will create spaces that inspire, nurture, and elevate lives.
