Latest News

  • Dichotomy in Policy: Duterte administration’s policies yield mixed results for office segment

    The Duterte administration’s ‘Build, Build, Build’ push has been contributing to greater office space absorption in Metro Manila. However, delay in the proclamation of Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) parks and buildings is likely to affect the leasing of several buildings with pending PEZA approval in both Metro Manila and provincial areas.

  • Arthaland and Colliers sign exclusive leasing deal for Cebu Exchange

  • Flight-to-quality Redefines Manila

    In Q1 2019, Colliers recorded a marginal rise in vacancy due to substantial new supply in a number of business districts such as Quezon City. But low vacancy rates in the Makati CBD and the Bay Area have been constricting the expansion of tenants. A flight-to-quality, i.e. tenants’ transfer to newer and larger floorplate buildings was also prevalent during the period. To seize the rising demand, we encourage developers in locations with vacancy of between 0.6% and 3.0% to expedite construction and consider redeveloping old buildings.

  • Manila’s most expensive at ~PHP550k

    Strong demand in the pre-selling market has continued to raise residential prices, with the most expensive condominium project now priced at approximately PHP550,000 (USD10,400) per square metre. Meanwhile, leasing demand remains firm, especially in business hubs that house offshore gaming firms from China. We recommend that developers should offer creative leasing models such as co-living, highlight features of projects such as landscaping, retail options, and accessibility; and launch more mid-income units. Meanwhile, investors should cash in on the potential for capital appreciation of condominiums in light of planned rail projects that should improve connectivity.

  • Malls reconfiguration to quell extinction

    In Q1 2019 retail vacancy in Metro Manila rose after three consecutive quarters of decline. Despite this, we see opportunities as developers have been aggressive in renovating spaces and housing experiential and lifestyle-centric tenants to improve consumers’ retail experience and sustain footfall. To further capture opportunities, we encourage developers to use pockets of vacant space in malls to improve tenancy mix, incorporate foreign retail experiences, and utilize technology. Meanwhile, tenants testing the market should scout for available space in malls within integrated communities.

  • New supply as Cebu demand diversifies

    Outsourcing and offshore gaming companies continue to account for the bulk of office space demand in Cebu. Meanwhile, absorption from English tutorial centres is gaining ground.

  • Buoyant Property Amid Slower GDP

    Colliers encourages developers to maximize the country’s sustained macroeconomic environment. We recommend that developers align their projects with the government’s infrastructure push, which we see bannering the Philippine economic growth over the next two to three years.

  • Damosa Diamond Tower partners with Colliers International Philippines Inc.

  • Airbnb: Friend or Foe?

    Colliers believes that the conversion of a number of condominium units in Metro Manila into Airbnb units has partly contributed to sustained residential take up over the past three years.

  • All Aboard: Manila Subway to Influence Land and Property Prices, Strategies of Developers

    Metro Manila’s potential for economic expansion has been constricted by a poor infrastructure network brought about by decades of neglect and underspending. The current administration is addressing this by identifying major infrastructure projects that will be built in Metro Manila over the next three to seven years.

  • Record-high new hotels match all-time high foreign arrivals - Colliers

    Latest data from the Department of Tourism show that foreign tourist arrivals in 2018 reached a record-high 7.1 million, exceeding arrivals in 2017, but behind the government’s goal of 7.4 million. Manila continues to lag behind its Asian neighbours in terms of tourist arrivals and average daily rates (ADR), but the push to attract more leisure investments by improving infrastructure and implementing sustainability programmes should support arrival growth and sustain healthy hotel occupancy and ADR growth from 2019 to 2021. Colliers encourages developers to establish more homegrown brands; landbank near airports that are due for modernization; explore air service agreement opportunities; and monitor tourism projects implemented by relevant government agencies.

  • Philippine Property Market Reports: 4Q 2018 Office, Residential, Hotel and Industrial

    We are pleased to announce that the 4th quarter 2018 property market report is now available. Global real estate services company Colliers International, in a recently released report, identified key issues and opportunities in the Philippine property market particularly in the office, residential and retail sectors.

  • NEW RECORD HIGH: Condominium pre-sales reach historical high, but slower launches threaten 2019 take-up

    Colliers believes that pre-sales in 2019 will likely remain strong given the strong end-user demand. However, topping the 2018 sales figures might be a challenge given Colliers’ projected slowdown in launches due to the dearth of available developable land in Metro Manila and the continued acceleration of land prices in the country’s key business districts. We also see slower launches having a spill over effect on take-up figures in 2020 and 2021.

  • PEZA DILEMMA: Lack of Philippine Economic Zone Authority proclaimed space stymies occupiers

    Colliers expects the strong demand to continue in 2019 as buildings we project to be completed over the next 12 months are about 28% pre-leased as of Q4 2018. Based on Q4 2018 pre-commitment status, we expect Alabang, Makati CBD, Fort Bonifacio, and the Bay Area to record the strongest take-up in 2019. For 2019 to 2021, we project net take-up to average around 900,000 sq metres per annum.

  • Let's Get Flexible: Flexible Workspace redefining Manila’s office market

    The tight Metro Manila office market, coupled with the emergence of a mobile workforce and firms’ drive to bring down operating costs and provide flexibility to their employees has given rise to another office sub-segment – flexible workspace. We see Manila’s flexible workspace stock expanding by at least 10% per annum from 2019 and 2021 due to the continued rise of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSME); the influx of multinational corporations and outsourcing firms looking for plug-and-play offices; and the implementation of a set of policy reforms likely to improve the Philippines’ business climate. The segment’s growth should be supported by the improvement of the country’s information technology (IT) infrastructure, especially with the entry of a third telecommunications player which has committed itself to improving broadband connectivity nationwide.

  • Top 10 Forecast for 2019

    For the Philippine property market in 2019, flexibility will be the name of the game. The strong demand and evolving preference of tenants is giving rise to flexible workspaces; residential developers are tweaking their projects to cater to Chinese offshore gaming employees and local professionals; and mall operators are more open to foreign food and beverage (F&B) and home furnishing tenants, which we see redefining retail space absorption in 2019.

  • Philippine Property Market Reports: 3Q 2018 Office, Residential and Retail

    We are pleased to announce that the 3rd quarter 2018 property market report is now available. Global real estate services company Colliers International, in a recently released report, identified key issues and opportunities in the Philippine property market particularly in the office, residential and retail sectors.

  • Accelerated PEZA Approval Key to Sustaining BPO Growth – Colliers

    Colliers International Philippines encourages the government to expedite the approval of Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) applications to sustain the outsourcing sector’s growth. After a sluggish 2017, BPO firms have ramped up office space take up in 2018 and Colliers believes that the robust demand will be sustained by an ample supply of PEZA-proclaimed IT parks and buildings.

  • Colliers REMS is now ISO 9001:2015 certified

    Last September 21, 2018 and October 05, 2018, Colliers Philippines' Real Estate Management Services (REMS) team successfully passed its Stage 1 and Stage 2 surveillance audit respectively towards an ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems Certification, an upgrade from the current 2008 certification.

  • Manila likely to Outpace 2017 Condominium Sales

    Metro Manila condominium sales remain strong despite higher inflation and the central bank’s decision to raise benchmark yields. Latest sales figures indicate that the residential market is likely to outpace condominium sales in 2017. Colliers believes that a mix of demand from offshore gaming employees and local professionals is helping sustain the Metro Manila residential market, partly driving demand for other segments such as dormitories that cater to professionals and students. In 3Q2018, we have also seen the Manila Bay Area overtaking Ortigas Center in terms of number of condominium units.

  • One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites and Colliers International seal Property Management Partnership

    One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites has signed a deal with Colliers International Philippines for property management services for the lavish hotel located in Barrio Sungay, Tagaytay City.

  • All Aboard: Manila Subway to Influence Land and Property Prices, Strategies of Developers

    Metro Manila’s potential for economic expansion has been constricted by a poor infrastructure network brought about by decades of neglect and underspending. The current administration is addressing this by identifying major infrastructure projects that will be built in Metro Manila over the next three to seven years. Among the infrastructure projects that the government intends to develop is the Manila Subway system.

  • New Office Towers to Redefine Ortigas Skyline

  • Sindalan Town Center, Colliers sign Property Management deal

In addition to this, FCDC also engaged the services of Colliers in Landlord Representation for the real estate agency services of STC.

  • Industrial And Retail Are Sectors To Watch For In The Next 12 Months – Colliers

    In its Q3 2018 Market Snapshot, the Capital Markets and Investment Services (CMIS) units of Colliers International in Asia noted that market sentiment has become more cautious in some key markets in the region due to more adverse economic and policy conditions. In the Philippines, the flow of investments into major property segments such as retail and industrial could hinge on the implementation of key policy reforms. Hence, Colliers International Philippines believes that these are the key sectors to watch for over the next 12 months.

  • Cebu weathers BPO slowdown as outsourcing transactions pick-up

    Similar to Metro Manila, there were initial concerns that office space demand from outsourcing firms in Metro Cebu will slow down this year. Colliers International Philippines believes that the uncertainties were brought about by the shift to greater economic nationalism in the United States, led by the anti-outsourcing stance of the present administration; the perceived decline in the peace and order situation in the Philippine; and delay in the proclamation of Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) buildings, which enables tenants to apply for tax and non-tax incentives.

  • Bay Area ripe for more upscale condominium projects

    Colliers International Philippines believes that luxury condominium demand should remain strong due to Metro Manila having one of the most attractive rental yields in the region; relatively low prices; and sustained demand from affluent Filipinos, foreign investors, and offshore gambling firms. The luxury market in the country’s capital is relatively small but demand has been stable over the past few years. The projects being leased out or sold to the secondary market continue to receive strong demand. This entices affluent locals and foreign investors to look for similar developments in Metro Manila. In fact, the pent-up demand encourages mid-income condominium developers to scale up and construct high-end projects in emerging business districts such as the Manila Bay Area.

  • Makati CBD remains popular choice of BPOs, traditional offices

    The Makati Central Business District (CBD) remains a primary choice of outsourcing and traditional companies. The dearth of available space in the business hub coupled with strong demand has sustained overall office vacancy of only 1 to 2 percent. This makes recently-completed office towers such as The Insular Life Building a popular choice among tenants that want to occupy prime space within Makati CBD.

  • Developers employ different strategies in capturing Cebu's tourism gains

    Colliers sees the completion of the second terminal of MCIA playing a crucial role in the country’s goal of attracting up to 12 million foreign visitors by 2022.The modernised and expanded airport can now accommodate up to 12.5 million passengers annually from 4 million previously. In our opinion, the new terminal’s completion is timely as we see more foreign and domestic tourists visiting Cebu following the national government’s order to close the popular Boracay island to pave way for rehabilitation.

  • Developers expand industrial space in Central Luzon amid improving infrastructure

    Colliers International Philippines believes that industrial parks in the central Luzon have tremendous potential to become key hubs for manufacturing activities. The industrial spaces of Ayala Land and Filinvest, for instance, are located within their respective estates that are strategically located near infrastructure projects lined up by the government.

  • Property poised for historic highs as GDP declines

    The Philippine economy grew by 6% in 2Q2018, slower than the 6.6% recorded in the same period last year and below the 7% to 8% initially projected by the government. The 2Q2018 figure makes the Philippines the third fastest growing economy in the region, only behind Vietnam (6.8%) and China (6.7%). The government intends to post faster economic growth in the next three to six years by enticing more investments thru relaxation of foreign ownership restrictions in key economic sectors such as construction and ramping up the implementation of vital infrastructure projects.

  • Manila office take-up to reach record-high of 1 million square meters

    The Metro Manila office sector remains robust with net take up for the first six months of 2018 already outpacing FY 2017 figures. Midway through 2018, Colliers recorded a net take up of 641,000 sq m, already higher than the 638,000 sq m posted for the entire 2017. For 2018, Colliers expects a little over 1 million sq m of net take up, the highest in Metro Manila’s history. We see the strong demand being complemented by record-high completion of new office buildings across the country’s capital.

  • Bay Area corners bulk of Manila office demand

    Office space demand across Metro Manila has been surging. But the lack of available space in major business districts such as Makati and Fort Bonifacio has been compelling tenants to look to alternative locations such as the Manila Bay Area. Both BPO and non-BPO firms have been opening shop in the burgeoning business hub due to its proximity to the airport and ease of access to other business districts in the country’s capital.

  • Ceboom! Developers Capture Cebu's Tourism Gains

    The completion of the second terminal of Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) should further boost Cebu’s attractiveness as a tourist destination. The opening of the new terminal also comes at an opportune time given the national government’s decision to close the popular Boracay island for six months to pave the way for rehabilitation.

  • Promotion of workplace wellness gaining ground in the Philippines

    In emerging markets such as the Philippines, the concept of making wellness at the forefront of workplace strategy has yet to gain substantial ground but this could change quickly as a competitive labor market and rising office vacancy in Metro Manila compel developers and tenants to differentiate to attract and retain occupants and high-quality talent.
