Robinsons Land Corp., the property arm of Gokongwei-led JG Summit Holdings Inc., is starting work on its fifth office building in the Ortigas central business district as it cited strong demand in the area, a statement showed.
Robinsons Land said the project is a 37-story office development called Cyberscape Gamma, which is located along Topaz and Ruby roads. It will add about 45,000 square meters of gross leasable area to the company’s portfolio and bring its gross leasable space in the Ortigas CBD to over 147,000 sqm.
“We are starting the construction of Cyberscape Gamma in response to strong demand for our office spaces in the Ortigas CBD,” Faraday D. Go, who heads of the company’s office buildings division, said in the statement.
Cyberscape Gamma will have a total of 28 office floors featuring large floor plates of about 1,500 sqm. It will have ample parking spaces at the basement and podium parking floors.
The building will also have retail and dining compliments apart from service shops at the ground and mezzanine floors to serve the needs of tenants as well as nearby residents and offices.
Expected to serve the building tenants of both Cyberscape Beta and Cyberscape Gamma are Toby’s Estate, a popular Australian coffee franchise, 24/7 convenience store Mini Stop, Korean restaurant Golmokkil, Dells Food Hall and Country Style, the company said.
Since the building will be registered with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority, Go said Cyberscape Gamma is suited for offshoring and outsourcing firms as well as local and multinational companies.
Cyberscape Gamma will be interconnected to Cyberscape Beta at the ground and mezzanine floors, the statement showed. Cyberscape Gamma will be equipped with high-speed elevators, 100-percent backup power with N+1 provision, multiple telecom providers as well as an advanced security, fire safety and building management system.
The building is accessible through Edsa, C-5 and Ortigas Avenue via all major modes of transport which makes commuting easy for employees. Support facilities such as major shopping malls, international hotel chains, hospitals, and residential apartments and events venues are available in the vicinity, Robinsons Land said.http://business.inquirer.net/192304/new-rlc-office-tower-to-rise-in-ortigas
