Livin’ la vida Laguna | Suntrust Properties Inc.

Indeed, there is life in Laguna.  As one of the nearest provinces and most accessible from the capital, Laguna is home to those who work and do business in Metro Manila.  But in recent years, this trend has changed as Laguna is a thriving province where businesses and economic activities prosper.  

Various cities and municipalities in Laguna are now booming economic hubs. With a young population, rising income levels, and a vast employment pool of professionals, Laguna is attracting investments and business opportunities. With this, it allows homeowners to just stay in the province to do work, to school their children, and to live a comfortable lifestyle.

“Even before, we have already seen the massive potential of Laguna,” said Atty. Harry Paltongan, president of Suntrust Properties. “This is the reason why we have several developments in various locations in Laguna. It is proof that we have placed our trust in the province and we want the people there to live in a world-class community that we are known for.”

Suntrust Properties, a developer known for its well-crafted themed communities in thriving locations, is offering four projects in Laguna.  These are: Verona, Sentosa, San Francisco Heights, and Gran Avila. 

Though these developments have different themes and features, all of them carry the trademark high-quality craftsmanship of Suntrust’s team of architects, engineers, designers, etc. 

San Francisco Heights and Gran Avila were originally developments of Stateland Inc. In 2018, Suntrust Properties acquired Stateland Inc. as its subsidiary.  With the combination of the strength and expertise of the two developers, Suntrust Properties is continuously growing and emerging with a bigger portfolio in Laguna.

Home seekers – whether they may be young couples, those who want to have a bigger home for their expanding family, or empty nesters who want a second home – can surely find an ideal home in these Suntrust communities.


Suntrust Verona

“Fall in love with life all over again”

A love story with the good life begins at Verona in Silang-Sta. Rosa.  Inspired by its namesake, the Italian city of Verona, this Suntrust community is filled with beauty and romance.

The 63-hectare enclave is made up of six residential phases. It showcases a variety of single-detached and duplex homes – all exquisitely designed and embraced by lush nature spaces.

At Verona, residents can enjoy soothing views from the home of their choice. Indulge in all kinds of fun in an exclusive playground.

With the community’s accessibility, various important destinations in the South are nearby.


Suntrust Sentosa

Inside the world of Sentosa, it is easy to form bonds that last a lifetime.

Inspired by the popular resort in Singapore, Suntrust Sentosa boasts not only one, but two Merlion replicas in its community façade.

Here, there is always plenty of room to mingle and experience the good times with family and friends.  Move in to any of three residential phases and see how a close community of friends becomes one big, happy family. When you make friends for keeps, the fun follows.

Whether one is looking to step into adventure or get close to nature, Sentosa’s exciting leisure amenities will give one days of endless pleasure.


San Francisco Heights offers house-and-lot packages starting from 36 square meters.  Featuring the style of Mediterranean architecture with modern features, the project is envisioned to create a distinct suburban lifestyle right in the middle of the flourishing city of Calamba.

San Francisco Heights encompasses a sprawling 23-hectare estate of relatively flat terrain.

Calamba City, being Laguna’s second component city, is an ideal place for Filipino families to come home to. Here, residents are given a choice to have a home away from the busy rat race in the city, but one that is still definitely accessible to places of work, relaxation, and recreation.


Gran Avila is an economic housing project in Brgy. Majada located in Calamba, one of the fastest growing cities in Laguna. The project encompasses 16.25 hectares of prime land with homes inspired by modern-themed architectural designs.

The subdivision is divided into five phases, with residential units that provide flexibility and comfort to future residents.

Suntrust Properties’ adherence to quality, meticulous workmanship, and compliance with industry standards in land development are evident even in this economic housing development.
