Federal Land NRE Global Inc. (FNG) is taking the lead to herald a groundbreaking era in contemporary urban living.

Officials from FNG, a visionary collaboration between the Ty family-led Federal Land Inc. and Japan’s Nomura Real Estate Development Co. Ltd., recently unveiled the details of its first three masterplanned projects, all carrying the promise of a new lifestyle, an upgraded standard of living, and a bright future defined by quality and excellence.


Rising in Mandaluyong City, Pasay City and Cavite province, these highly awaited projects will no doubt be a testament to FNG’s capabilities—a seamless fusion of two cultures, expertise, and sensibilities that align perfectly with the discerning preferences of local homebuyers.

“FNG is here to make a significant difference in the Philippine real estate landscape and, more importantly, in the lives of the communities we serve. We are committed to elevating living standards by introducing innovative design concepts from Japan and international best practices,” said Thomas F. Mirasol, president and chief operating officer of Federal Land.

According to Mirasol, this Japanese aspect in their developments is a unique feature in the Philippine real estate scene. The first-world features and innovations that Nomura Real Estate is bringing to the partnership will serve as an ideal complement to the sensibilities of the local market, which also has a penchant and fascination for the Japanese culture.

For his part, FNG vice chairman Yusuke Hirano said Nomura Real Estate seeks to create new value in its real estate projects in the Philippines. FNG projects will thus bear the hallmarks of Japanese culture, ingenuity and innovation, which means these will be smart, nature-oriented and human centric as well.

Hirano added that they hope to bring a “lifestyle that Filipinos would appreciate.”


“As we look ahead, we are thrilled to share our new projects, which will soon grace the Philippine real estate scene. These developments embody our vision for a brighter, more sustainable future,” Mirasol said.

“Among these are FNG’s residential neighborhood within Federal Land’s masterplanned community in Riverpark, Cavite; another development in Met Park, Bay Area, that will offer residential and commercial spaces; and The Observatory, a riverfront mixed-use development in Mandaluyong City. These projects are just the beginning of plans we have made to realize in the next 30 years,” he further disclosed.

The Observatory, a 4.5-ha contemporary retreat rising in Mandaluyong City, will comprise of eight residential towers and an office building that will all have their own retail podiums, offering an array of retail, services and dining options to its future community. The vertical village here will offer several configurations, ranging from the compact studio units (26 sqm to 33 sqm) to the more expansive penthouses (155 sqm to 202 sqm) to better cater to the diverse lifestyles and needs of its residents.

Given such a strategic, central location, The Observatory will place its residents at a unique vantage point, offering accessibility, convenience, and a holistic urban living experience.

Located in the bustling Bay Area in Pasay City meanwhile is Met Park, a mixed-use neighborhood that reimagines modern living with a youthful and balanced touch. Here, FNG is bringing the likeness of Tokyo’s Omotesando, a pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined boulevard known as a luxury destination, and Cat Street, meanwhile known as a “haven of hip culture dedicated to youth fashion.”

Residential towers will rise here, offering studio units to three-bedroom cuts to cater to investors, young professionals and starting families as well.

Touted as the “Next Gen City of the South” meanwhile is the 600-ha Riverpark in General Trias, Cavite, which will let you discover numerous ways to lead a healthy, balanced, and connected way of living. Within this community, FNG will be developing 230 ha into a haven of Japanese innovation amid natural rivers and pocket gardens. This residential enclave, which will offer lots with sizes ranging from 300 sqm to 527 sqm, is all set to harmonize the aesthetics of Japanese design with contemshopping porary family requirements.

“Our focus is on creating milestone developments that will continue to integrate Japanese inspiration with the Filipino sensibility, differentiated by the coming together of cultures, resulting in smart and sustainable cities that aim to create value in townships. That is the promise of excellence—one we are confident to deliver,” Mirasol concluded.
