The first office condo of Filinvest's newest brand, WorkSpaces, will rise in Alabang.
In order to service corporations in and business relocators to the Muntinlupa area, Filinvest has entered the office selling industry by introducing Parkway Corporate Center, the pioneer project of the real estate developer’s newest brand, WorkSpaces by Filinvest.
The concept of selling office space is new to Filinvest, according to Parkway Corporate Center business development manager Sherilynne Santos. Most of the developer’s office buildings, like Makati’s PBCom Tower, are leased out and usually cater to BPOs. With its more traditional design, Parkway aims to accommodate trading companies and corporate headquarters, as well as start-up call centers. Santos also points out that as an office building that sells instead of leasing out, Parkway has no direct competition in Alabang.
Located at the corner of Parkway and Corporate Avenues in Filinvest City, Parkway occupies a land area of 2,407 sqm, with the building footprint at 1,600sqm. The 32-storey building comprises 390 combinable office units starting at the 8th floor with an average size of 36 sqm. Units will be sold at around Php 185,000/sqm including other charges, pricing one unit at over Php 6 million.
Accessibility, Santos said, is the main advantage of Parkway, highlighting its location at the gateway of Filinvest City and near the South Luzon Expressway.
“We are encouraging companies to get the whole floor if they want to have their headquarters here in the south. Most of the companies in CALABARZON area, they don’t have to traverse the traffic in EDSA just to get to their office in Ortigas or Makati,” she said.
“Everything is within reach. At the same time, Filinvest City itself offers a ready client base for the businesses. If they want to rent their units, maraming pwedeng mag-rent,” she added.
Amenities of the office condo include a retail plaza at the ground floor, 8 parking levels, a business center at the 7th level, a podium deck garden, and a common balcony every five levels. Facilities include 24-hour security and CCTV cameras, a fiber optic backbone, back-up power, and six elevators.
Parkway Corporate Center will begin construction in the second quarter of 2015, and completion is slated for the fourth quarter of 2018.
