Although Biñan only became a city in 2010, it has for years been one of most progressive local government units in Laguna Province. Situated just 34 kilometers south of Metro Manila, it is highly accessible via the South Luzon Expressway, and is home to many industrial estates and export processing zones. Prior to its cityhood in 2010, Biñan was already one of the Philippines’ richest municipalities, registering a gross annual income of PHP 677 million.
There are many more reasons why the city is one of Laguna’s most popular, especially for homebuyers. Many people who are employed in the capital choose Biñan as their home because the city offers more affordable housing options, compared to the National Capital Region. The city also has an expansive green landscape and a more laidback atmosphere, making it the preferred area to start a family.
A city with a population of over 333,000 inhabitants according to the 2015 Census of Population, the city of Biñan is understandably home to a large number of subdivisions and gated communities. The most well known include Town & Country Southville Subdivision, Olivares South Subdivision, South City Homes, Saint Rose Village, and Ireneville Subdivision.
