Manila, 10 May 2019 – ArthaLand, the country’s pioneer for premium green and sustainable real estate projects, has sealed a partnership with Colliers International Philippines, a global real estate services company, for the exclusive landlord representation services for Cebu Exchange.
Cebu Exchange – the largest green office building in Southern Philippines – is ArthaLand’s expansion in Cebu’s booming metropolis. It is strategically located at the gateway of the Cebu IT Park in Cebu City and is set to change the real estate landscape in Visayas and Mindanao.
“It is important for us that all aspects of our projects, such as Cebu Exchange, are executed seamlessly by a dedicated, integrated team of experts,” said Jaime C. González, vice chairman and president of ArthaLand. “With our aggressive target to create higher standards in the development and maintenance of sustainable and green buildings, we are confident that our partnership with Colliers International will help us achieve them.”
In Tholons’ 2019 survey of the most attractive outsourcing sites in the world, Cebu ranked 12th. It fared well in terms of talent, infrastructure, and regulatory environment for innovation. Cebu Exchange should benefit from Cebu’s sustained attractiveness as a global outsourcing hub.
“Moving forward, we still see outsourcing companies, such as call centers, as well as offshore gaming firms, driving office space demand in the Metro. Cebu’s skilled manpower and adequate IT infrastructure make it one of the most competitive outsourcing locations in the world,” said Andrew Gomez, Colliers International Philippines director for landlord representation.
Aside from outsourcing firms, several traditional and non-BPO companies continue to open shop in Cebu City. “These firms should find Cebu Exchange attractive as the building offers flexible unit cut-ups,” added Gomez. “Meanwhile, outsourcing companies continue to gravitate towards the Cebu IT Park and its fringe area due to proximity to residential condominiums and malls. These firms require expansive floor plates to consolidate operations as well as environmentally-sustainable office spaces.” The building offers large floor plates (up to 5,000 sq m).
Cebu Exchange is an ideal choice for locators as it is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Philippine Green Building Council, and Building for Ecologically Responsible Design Excellence (BERDE).
