Weaving stories of distinct lifestyles, memorable beginnings, and perfect endings.

This is what happens behind the steel structures and boulders of every development by Empire East Land Holdings Inc., whose thrust has been to deliver a “canvass” where residents are given all the necessary tools, and a free hand to draw their own tales of happy ever afters.

“The seeds that we plant and the kind of lives and memories that our residents are able to create in every home or structure that we build, serve as an anecdote of just how good life can be in an Empire East development. Such anecdotes allow us to weave wonderful stories of life, serving as an inspiration for the company to continuously do better in every development,” explained Empire East president and CEO Atty. Anthony Charlemagne C. Yu.

“This has always been our goal and this is what makes us different. Empire East is a brand deeply in touch with the humanity of its customers. We are committed to continuously come up and deliver new and better ways of life by tapping into what the market really want and need, now and in the future,” Yu added.

Over the last two decades, Empire East Land Holdings was able to build landmark residential communities that have transformed the urban and suburban landscapes.

It has also introduced over the past years new and innovative concepts such as township developments that seek to create a harmonious neighborhood, and to uplift the quality of living experience for its residents.

Currently, the property firm controlled by Filipino tycoon Andrew Tan specializes in the creation of residential communities for the middle-income market segment, and in the sale or lease of commercial and industrial spaces.

Indeed, in building communities, improving lives, and ultimately, transforming the landscape, Empire East plants the seed of a story for each customer it serves.

“Communicating the humanity of our brand was a key component of our marketing initiatives. We linked the stability of the Empire East name to universal values such as family cohesion, a sense of community and an innate desire for the good life. Our developments, created to uplift the quality of future residents’ everyday experiences, are undoubtedly in service of human connections,” Yu explained.

And there seems to be no stopping Empire East in continuing to pursue such a phenomenal service.

Empire East, whose continued growth has been anchored on solid foundation and sound fundamentals, has committed to continue tapping new areas for expansion; innovate to differentiate from the rest of the pack; meet the market head on with relevant and responsive products; and keep the company accountable when it comes to customer service and satisfaction.

“We aim to leverage our resources and strengths in a much- improved economic environment this year. Empire East has many milestones in the making, and our growth aspirations can only be achieved through the support of our shareholders, business partners and customers, as well as the concerted efforts of the men and women that make up the company’s workforce,” Yu further claimed.

According to Yu, Empire East will continue to push for integrated urban-based township developments that are transit-oriented, as these communities do not just symbolize connection and mobility. They also forge precious linkages and offer a more efficient way to move around, he added.

“Empire East vastly changed the real estate scene when it first launched its transit-oriented developments (TODs) in rapid succession. Today, the reception for these projects has hardly waned, making the TOD category a continued bright spot in the industry,” Yu further said.

Here are four Empire East projects whose location, layout design and amenities have enabled its residents to weave their own set of unique stories to share.
