San Pedro was formerly a rural municipality supported by agriculture. It became a city in December 2013, as a result of its continued evolution into an industrial, commercial, financial and residential center for not only Laguna but also for the surrounding provinces. Private banks, factories, restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, and educational and medical establishments line the cityscape and contribute to its increasingly urban vibe.
Amidst the hustle and bustle is the city's annual Sampaguita Festival, honoring the once-thriving local industry centered on country's national flower, which is currently enjoying a steady renaissance and is proof that San Pedro is just as steeped into its history as it is with its growth.
To cater to the city's increasing residential population and its transient workforce, an abundance of real estate developments have risen in San Pedro, which has resulted in a real estate market that offers options suitable for a variety of users and finances.
Among these properties currently on the market is a 300-sqm prime lot in Block 3, Lot 13 at South Peak Subdivision. It is located near San Pedro Exit and MCX SLEX, and offers easy commute to and from Alabang Town Center, Greenfields, Nuvali, Tagaytay, Makati, The Fort and Ayala. It is available for P3,545,000.
