It’s undoubtedly one of the most promising, most competitive provinces today.
Pampanga, famed for its rich gastronomy and festive colorful lanterns, has increasingly been on the radar of many investors today owing to the availability of land and skilled talent pool, conducive business climate, and the continuing aggressive infrastructure build up that would boost the connectivity and attractiveness of the province, such as the new terminal of the Clark International Airport, the NLEx-SLEx Connector Road, and the upcoming North-South Commuter Railway, among others.
Many of its cities and towns today are already benefiting from the promise offered by this progressive province.
The first class, highly urbanized City of Angeles, in particular, has seen its share of progress as it emerges as among the most attractive destinations in the province.
Today, it’s one burgeoning cosmopolitan city, brimming with fresh opportunities set amid a modern yet heritage-rich landscape. There’s a Freeport zone, infrastructure, and numerous options for residential, office, industrial and commercial spaces—on top of its own rich history, fascinating culture, and renowned culinary heritage.Emergence of industries
The Angeles that many know today, however, was once a small settlement named Culiat, which was then part of San Fernando town. It was in the 1800s that Angeles began seeing the emergence of industries, including a sugar mill and wine distillery, which allowed the town to flourish.
By the 1900s, the Nepomucenos, a prominent business and political family, became integral to the development of Angeles City, having founded ventures at that time. Juan de Dios Nepomuceno and wife, Clara Teresa Teodora Gomez first started an ice plant in 1921, followed by the Angeles Electric Plant in 1923. There was also a soft drinks factory, a subdivision and the Nepo Mart, which was started in 1968, then known as the original retailer of imported products or what is colloquially known as “stateside goods.”
These ventures have been credited in helping Angeles become a flourishing city early on.
At present, the Nepomuceno family continues to help fuel the city’s growth with its interests in power distribution (Angeles Electric Corp.); power generation (Angeles Power Inc. and Raslag Corp.); water concession (Teresa Waterworks); residential and commercial real estate (TGN Realty, JDN Sons Inc. and Angeles Industrial Park); and education (Holy Angel University). The Nepo Center, located in the heart of Angeles City’s Central Business District, remains bustling today as it is now a commercial center that houses retail hubs namely Nepo Mall, Newpoint Mall, Nepo Mart and Nepo Quad; three office buildings, eNtec1, eNtec2 and Angeles Business Center; and offices for its power distribution business.
Its latest strategic venture with one of the country’s leading property developers, however, further shows how the family remains committed to helping enhance the city further with a new master planned destination built for the future.
Rockwell Land, in partnership with the Nepomuceno family through Juan D. Nepomuceno Realty, is now bringing to the progressive province of Pampanga its distinctive retail and residential offerings as well as its signature emblematic lifestyle through the 4.5-ha Rockwell at Nepo Center.
For its first foray in Central Luzon, Rockwell Land is bringing its wealth of experience and expertise, which created some of the most sought-after, most vibrant addresses today including Rockwell’s high-end flagship project, Rockwell Center Makati. Refined lifestyles and elegant, well-appointed spaces in a self-sustaining community will soon redefine the landscape of the bustling Nepo Center, as Rockwell’s Pampanga masterpiece is planned to have three mid-rise residences, offices, as well as the first Power Plant Mall outside Makati City.
Currently, Rockwell has already launched two residential buildings in its Pampanga development namely The Manansala, a 15-story enclave that pays homage to Pampanga’s Vicente Manansala, and The BenCab at 16 stories, which was named after another acclaimed National Artist, Benedicto Cabrera. Both projects have been received warmly so far not only by Rockwell’s own well-heeled clientele, but also—and more importantly—by the Kapampangans themselves.
While this up and coming community will be distinctly Rockwell, it was designed to pay homage to the cultural heritage of Pampanga—a province known to have an affinity for the finer things in life. Rockwell Land is pulling out all the stops to ensure that this promising development will offer only the finest to cater to the locale’s discerning tastes and preferences.
Future residents, office locators and guests can thus expect nothing less than exceptional—spacious units with exquisite finishes, sophisticated amenities in its condominium projects; pocket parks, sprawling open spaces with lush landscaping and verdant greenery that will allow everyone to readily enjoy the outdoors; curated retail and dining offerings, including homegrown and international brands, that will fill up the Power Plant Mall and commercial spaces; stringent security measures that make it a safe, conducive place to raise families and do business; and of course, its unparalleled after sales services.
