Clark Freeport is one of the most sought-after destination for business investments in the Philippines. Unfortunately, the 32000ha ex-US-airbase converted into a special economic zone and later modified into a “Freeport” has since shrunk in size to less than 5000 hectares. That’s not the all of it either. Almost all of the 5000ha have been spoken for.

For businesses hoping to have a foothold on this prestigious piece of real estate, the best bet is to approach an existing “locator” who might have some land to spare and is willing to offer some of it for sale or sub-lease.

YATS International Leisure Philippines is one such locator. Back in 2000, YATS has acquired long-term lease (50 years renewable for another 25 years) to some 20 hectares of land which has now become the center of the CBD (Central Business District) of Clark. YATS has built a beautiful country club with some 13 hectares of its land holding, a project called Clearwater Country Club which includes a 2.5ha freshwater lake surrounded by trees and grassland, a beach, a large lagoon and a small number of hotel rooms. Clearwater further bolster the appeal and therefore the value of the surrounding 7ha of land all slated for either mix-use or residential and commercial use.

This is probably the last chance for smart investors to approach YATS International for a deal to carry out their development projects inside Clark Freeport. At this moment, price of land is still quite reasonable but this will not be the case for long.
