The town of Alabang, part of the Second district of Muntinlupa City, has undergone tremendous growth in the last decade. Because of two large scale commercial real estate development projects namely: the Filinvest Corporate City by the Filinvest Development Corporation, and Madrigal Business Park of the Ayala Land, Inc., both of which changed the landscape of Muntinlupa City--from what was once vast fields of cow pasture in the late 1980s into a supercity that houses new residential, business, industrial and commercial establishments.
Examples of these are: one of the country's premier shopping centers, Alabang Town Center, the Festival Supermall (one of Asia's biggest malls), the towering Insular Life Towers, the Asian Hospital and Medical Center, and the Northgate Business District which specializes in hosting information and technology industries. Nightlife is still relatively staid compared to those of its neighbors, and younger residents often flock to other cities in Metro Manila, particularly Makati, Taguig, or Manila, during the weekend to enjoy the night out.
Many companies from other crowded cities have moved their base of operations into Muntinlupa City, in a transformation reminiscent of Makati's development boom 30 years ago.Main Strengths
