Building, nurturing Davao City’s landscape


For over 60 years, Alsons Development and Investment Corporation has actively supported the economic and physical transformation of the largest city in Mindanao by creating iconic commercial and residential developments, leaving an indelible mark on Davao City’s landscape. 

“We bring with us a quiet confidence that the communities we built have been and will be home to many generations. Alsons Dev believes that, truly, life is here in Davao, and as a developer, we aim to enhance the lifestyle the city offers through great master planning and execution,” said Miguel Dominguez, Director of Alsons Dev. 

A pioneer in retail

Where heritage meets hip: Davao’s beloved Aldevinco shops are now in Poblacion Market Central alongside fresh retail concepts and homegrown food brands.

In the 1960s, Davao’s retail scene was relatively modest, with markets and small shops scattered throughout the urban area. Alsons Dev’s Aldevinco Shopping Center transformed the city’s commercial sector by being the first to offer a wide variety of goods and services in a centralized location in 1965.

Although the shopping center ceased operations in 2021, Alsons Dev continues to uphold local culture and heritage through Poblacion Market Central.

Setting the standard

Two of the most sought-after addresses in Davao, Alsons Dev’s Ladislawa Garden Village and Woodridge Park, serve as residential havens for today’s modern Dabawenyos.

NORTHTOWN Subdivision.

Further expanding their portfolio, Alsons Dev created Northtown, a township development in Cabantian; and Narra Park Residences, a mid-cost housing project in Tigatto.

Within the township is the first-ever integrated Public Safety and Security Complex, which houses the police, fire and Central 911 stations in one address. Built and donated by Alsons Dev to the City Government of Davao, the complex not only caters to Northtown residents but also to the neighboring communities in Cabantian and Indangan, Buhangin.

Recently, Alsons Dev also began to extend its promise of high-quality residential developments to a broader market through its mid-cost housing brand, Nurtura Land and Home. The maiden project under this brand, Narra Park Residences, is an award-winning mid-cost housing community recognized by PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards as the Best Housing Development (Metro Davao) in 2023 and was a highly commended contender in the Best Affordable House (VisMin) category of The Outlook 2023: Philippine Real Estate Awards by Lamudi. It is the first affordable housing development in Davao City to feature two 1.4-hectare parks, giving residents a greener, healthier living environment.

“Drawing from our legacy, we remain steadfast in our mission to build and nurture communities beyond expectations,” Dominguez said.
