Dumaguete City, the capital of Negros Oriental, is known as one of the best places to retire in the Philippines. (see: Top 5 Cities You Would Want to Retire In) But is Dumaguete ready for advanced city living?

The Future Is Here!

Filinvest, one of the country’s most trusted real estate property developers, is the company behind this brilliant concept. Having 60 years of impressive portfolio, expertise, and experience, it is no surprise for them to develop such an idea as this.

A Small Community in the City of Gentle People

Dumaguete is dubbed as the City of Gentle People due to its laid-back ambiance and friendly populace. Now, it has another title to go along with it: Forbes Magazine’s Top 5 Retirement Destination! One of the reasons why Dumaguete is considered as one of the best places to retire in (especially for foreigners) is because of its peace-loving and English-speaking people.

Being a university town, Dumaguete is composed mostly of students and young professionals. With a population of 30,000 and counting, Dumaguete’s economy is thriving! According to Mr. Tristan Las Marias, Senior Vice President and Cluster Head for Visayas and Mindanao: “Filinvest will be at the forefront of this growth.”
