THE Cebu Exchange, ArthaLand Corp.’s first project outside of Metro Manila, was named the Best Office Development (Cebu) at the 6th PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards 2018.
In a statement, ArthaLand said Cebu Exchange also received high commendations for Best BPO Development and Best Office Architectural Design.
“The recognitions will serve as an additional catalyst to establish Cebu as a hub for green and sustainable buildings. As we continue to move forward with our commitment to the environment, we hope to inspire communities in advocating sustainable designs for both residential and commercial developments,” Leonardo Arthur T. Po, executive vice-president and treasurer of ArthaLand, was quoted as saying.
Cebu Exchange is being developed by a joint venture of ArthaLand unit Cebu Lavana Land and Hong Kong investment firm ARCH Capital Management.
Launched in March 2017, the development has already been registered with the Philippine Green Building Council and is on track for a BERDE (Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence) certification.
Cebu Exchange will also be the country’s largest dual certified development, having already registered with the US Green Building Council and obtained its pre-certification from LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
The building will use environmentally friendly materials, as well as feature water recycling plumbing systems and energy saving air-conditioning. It will also have a Terrace Garden and a Sky Park offering views of the city.
