SAN JOSE DEL MONTE BULACAN
Plan of Developments at Tungko, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan
Current land development and market trends indicate the growth of more residential areas within the City of San Jose del Monte. In the coming years, people living and working in the growing Metro Manila region will continue to need housing. Unless deliberately controlled and regulated by the local government, more subdivision areas will be developed within the city.
Currently, a number of important land developments that have significant residential components are being planned or set to be implemented within the city. Listed below are the major upcoming land developments in San Jose del Monte.
•A Master Plan to transform a portion of the Araneta properties in Barangay Tungkong Mangga into a mixed-use primarily residential "self-contained" Integrated New Town was already prepared. One of its important components is a commercial and mixed-use commercial development that incorporates a multi-nodal transport stop in the Tungkong Mangga area.
•The "New Town" site, located in Barangay Sapang Palay Proper and owned by the Puyat family, is set to be re-planned in the immediate future. To be incorporated in the new Master Plan are two other areas located at its immediate vicinity. These are the 80-hectare property west of the "New Town" and across the San Jose del Monte-Marilao Road and the approximately 120-hectare property, east of the "New Town" and across Quirino Highway.
•Large areas of the City have already been re-classified from agricultural to residential land use and are currently awaiting construction. One of these is the 108 hectare planned subdivision in Sapang Palay Proper of Moldex Realty. It is located west of the San Jose del Monte-Marilao Road and near the "New Town" site.
•A 5.2-hectare area in Barangay Minuyan Proper is set to be developed in the near future into a sanitary landfill and Material Recovery Centre. It will replace the existing dumpsite located in Barangay Citrus.
