An enduring legacy built on noble vision
Federal Land Inc. marks its 50th year with a rich, profound legacy.
This pioneering developer has already—and impressively—seen the fruition of the noble vision laid down by its founder, the late visionary, business icon and philanthropist George S.K. Ty. Not only has it become a respected prime mover in the local property scene, Federal Land has also stood out as a progressive trendsetter, marking many firsts as it continues to build great homes, develop dynamic communities at par with the rest of the world, and more importantly, create properties that contribute to the economy and in nation building.
Federal Land—the property arm of GT Capital Holdings and backed by the Metrobank Group—is a premier real estate developer with a curated portfolio of innovative residences, retail spaces, premium grade offices, upscale hotels, and masterplanned communities that create a positive impact for generations. Its name has fittingly become synonymous with excellence, innovation, distinction, and integrity.
Passion for architecture
Federal Land traces its beginnings from the late Dr. Ty’s passion and fascination for architecture, which he expressed by designing some of Metrobank’s branches. From banks, he moved on to sketch homes, paving the way for the creation of Federal Homes Inc. in 1972.
The company chose Binondo—a thriving district in Manila touted as the world’s oldest Chinatown—as the site of its first residential condominium project called Soler Tower.
This marked the exceptional beginnings of its legacy portfolio in Binondo that would later be expanded to include townhouses along Roxas Blvd. and United Nations Ave., and the GT Tower International along Ayala Avenue in Makati City, considered as one of the most striking and recognizable high-rises in the Philippines’ unrivaled financial capital. It also acquired 36 hectares of reclaimed land in Pasay where its burgeoning township, Metro Park, now stands.
