In a disclosure to the stock exchange, the property developer also said its board of directors had authorized the acquisition of a parcel of land in Batangas at 23,770 square meters (sq.m.) and in Bulacan at 16,349 sq.m.

The special board meeting held on Nov. 29 identified the 11 areas — seven in Luzon, two in the Visayas, and two in Mindanao. Of the planned joint ventures, the biggest is in Negros Occidental at 618,710 sq.m. followed by 578,254 sq.m. in Iloilo.
