Robinsons Land aims for LEED Gold badge
Manila Standard Today | September 26, 2014

Robinsons Land Corp.'s upcoming prime, Grade A office building in Quezon City is expected to carry the flag for the property development firm's commitment to environmental sustainability and further upgrading its office features as it aims for a LEED Gold Certified green building program.

Faraday D. Go, RLC's General Manager for Office Buildings Division, said the 20 storey Tera Tower---registered under the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED®) green building program—will be located inside its upcoming mixed-use complex and will have 15 office floors and ample parking space provisions.

Targeted for completion by 3rd quarter of 2015, RLC's 11th office building is currently under pre-leasing stage, it will be, adding an additional gross floor area of approximately 35,000 square meters to its growing office portfolio.

For its office space offerings this 2014, RLC is actively leasing its two new office buildings, Cyberscape Alpha and Cyberscape Beta. Both are located within the Ortigas Central Business District and are just a few steps away from Robinsons Galleria, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Asian Development Bank head office.

Strategically located along E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue (C-5) and Ortigas Avenue, Tera Tower will be the first structure at the heart of Robinsons Land's fourth mixed-use development in Quezon City.

"Modern residential, retail and hotel establishments are planned to be built alongside it, complementing the similarly modern architectural concept of Tera Tower in this master-planned 8-hectare development", Go said in a statement.

The U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® green building program is the globally recognized and preeminent program for the design, construction, maintenance and operations of high-performance green buildings and in line with its aim for LEED® Gold certification, Tera Tower will showcase sustainable and efficient building features.

Common areas will be brightly lit with durable and energy-efficient LED lights to better manage electricity consumption. A rainwater recycling system will be used to irrigate the building's common area landscaping instead of using potable water. Office spaces will use double glazed windows on all the exterior glass facades of the building to allow sunlight to pass through but limit the flow of heat going into the building.

"This minimizes the need for the use of office lighting and air-conditioning which potentially leads to electricity savings and better air quality for the tenants", Go added.
