Its thriving economy.

Recognized as one of the most highly urbanized cities outside of Metro Manila, the city is a haven for BPO companies and commercial and residential developments — like the Fountain Grove by Suntrust, a residential community located within Megaworld’s Northill Gateway, which combines all the things you will love about Bacolod. More condominiums, shopping centers, offices, and hotels are being built as part of its ongoing urbanization projects. 




Its greening program.

Despite the rise of skyscrapers, Bacolod City is committed to staying clean and green. In 2018, the city launched its Urban Development Greening Program with the goal of converting its empty lots into green spaces. The program also aims to create a park in every barangay and plant one million trees all over the city.
