ROBINSONS LAND Corp. (RLC) continues to grow its office portfolio in the provinces, as many information technology-business process management (IT-BPM) companies are considering the hub-and-spoke model.

Jonathan Paul P. Balboa, RLC vice-president and head of office leasing, said in a statement that many IT-BPM companies are “looking for provincial sites as growth centers and/or disaster recovery centers, while maintaining their base of operations in Metro Manila.”

RLC has built several office developments in growth areas such as Cebu, Davao, Naga, Bacolod, Tarlac and Ilocos.

This year, the Gokongwei-led developer is on track to complete three more office buildings in Visayas, namely Cybergate Galleria Cebu, Cybergate Iloilo Tower 1, and Cybergate Bacolod 2.

RLC’s office developments in the provinces cater to the growing demand for offices in prime locations that are easily accessed by workers. The buildings are in key business districts and offer spacious layouts that can meet requirements of IT-BPM firms. — Cathy Rose A. Garcia
