Land Planning and Site Planning NMA

The proposed new town of approximately 160 hectares resides in Jaro, Iloilo, Philippines.  The locale is an unassuming site delineated by a wide expanse of rice paddies and levees and a portion of a vigorous and meandering Saulog River.

The river’s dominating presence provides an opportunity to enhance Rio Vista's image. Creating a recreational water feature such as a five (5) hectare lake morphing from Salog River will serve as an identity, amenity and a source of civic pride for the new town.

Rio Vista’s program elements call for diverse types of housing, commercial, recreational and
institutional land uses. An existing industrial base is nearby.

Portions of the proposed man-made lake will pay homage to waterfront housing, and the town’s communal clubhouse and recreational center.

At the residential villages, a necklace of open spaces is equitably distributed for the residents’ use and enjoyment.
