MANILA, Philippines - Aspiring home owners looking for housing options in suburban Laguna can now look into a new option as property developer SOC Land bares its newest residential development, Althea Residences.
Situated in Biñan, Laguna, Althea Residences will feature modern homes with a tranquil vibe strategically spread out in 4.3 hectares of land. Home owners can choose from three housing options—Aurea for two-storey single-detached homes, Ayanna for single-attached homes and Aralia for bungalow homes.
According to Filemon Yee Jr., vice president for sales and marketing of SOC Land, Althea Residences was carefully planned to ensure low density. “We understand that for home owners, especially those with children, ample space to move around is an essential factor in selecting a home,” he said. “It’s something that we offer an abundance of in Althea because we value that kind of luxury.”
All Althea residents will have access to amenities including a basketball and badminton court, swimming pools for kids and adults, club house, children’s playground, and parks and jogging paths. A 24/7-manned guardhouse will be stationed in the main entrance, and the entire property is surrounded by a perimeter fence. Althea Residences will also have allotted commercial spaces to provide residents with easy and exclusive access to commercial establishments.
The fully developed residential community will be powered by the country’s largest utility, Meralco, and has been specifically elevated by 1.5 meter from surrounding communities to help prevent flooding during rainy season. Residents can also access a planting strip, and will be provided 24-hour potable water supply from Laguna Water.
“Housing continues to be a basic need in the Philippines, and we are happy to help fill a growing demand for affordable, quality and family-friendly homes,” Yee, Jr. said. “Laguna is a bustling community suitable for families—whether starter or established—and retired professionals who seek respite from crowded Manila and yet want to enjoy modern comforts and convenience.”
Althea Residences is easily accessible via South Luzon Expressway, using Greenfield Parkway and San Pablo Street. It is located near well-known schools in Laguna including Brent International School Manila, University of Perpetual Help, La Consolacion College, and St. Michael’s College of Laguna, as well as near hospitals like Biñan Doctors Hospital and New Sinai MDI Hospital.
Other establishments within the proximity are Puregold Biñan, SM City Sta. Rosa, Biñan City Hall, Biñan Police Station, Blessed Sacrament Parish, and Sto. Niño Chapel.
Althea Residences is part of SOC Land’s growing portfolio.

It is the same developer behind Anuva—a multi-building development located along the Sucat Interchange.
