ABREEZA AYALA CENTER

This 5 billion pesos project from the Ayala Land Inc. with a partnership deal with Antonio Floirendo Corp. will have a mall, BPO buildings, hotel, condominiums and probably more buildings just within a 10-hectare property.

Right now, Abreeza mall is almost complete. Two BPO buildings will then be connected to the mall as presented in the scale model. The mall will open May this year.

Davao is most business friendly city: study

http://www.sunstar.com.ph/davao/busi...dly-city-study

DAVAO CITY topped among urban cities in the country in terms of doing business, according to an international think tank.

During the City Competitiveness Forum 2010 yesterday, the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) revealed the results of their "Doing Business in the Philippines 2011" (Doing Business) report, which compared business regulations in 25 cities in the country.

The forum gathered Mindanao's loyal government leaders and Chamber of Commerce organizations.

The city jumped by 19 places since the 2008 Doing Business under the same category, said AIM professor Dr. Federico Macaranas at the Grand Regal Hotel.

The data in Doing Business in the Philippines 2011 are current as of June 1 this year.

The city topped under the category of "Ease of dealing with construction permits" followed by Taguig, General Santos, Zamboanga City, Marikina, Valenzuela, Cagayan de Oro, Mandaue, Makati, and Las Piñas for the top ten.

Under the category of "Ease of starting a business," the city ranked second after General Santos. The city is followed by Taguig, Valenzuela, Lapu-Lapu, Zamboanga City, Cebu City, Marikina, Mandaluyong, and Pasay to complete the top ten.

The 25 cities subject to the report were Batangas City, Cagayan de Oro, Caloocan, Cebu City, Davao City, General Santos, Iloilo City, Lapu-lapu, Las Pi¤as, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Mandaue, Manila, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, Quezon City, San Juan, Taguig, Valenzuela, and Zamboanga City.

AIM Policy Center program manager Tanya Lat noted that four cities from Mindanao entered the top ten for the category of "Ease of dealing with construction permits" while three cities from Mindanao entered the top ten for the category of "Ease of starting a business."

Lawyer Lai-Lynn Barcenas, associate director of AIM Policy Center said factors to the city's ranking was how the local government streamlined business registration.

The city eliminated several documentary requirements, instituting one-time assessment of all fees at the City Treasurer's Office, and enabling applicants to download the business application form from the city website.

Barcenas said the city also eliminated the barangay clearance and certified true copy of land title as pre-construction requirements for building permit applications. The Davao Light and Power Company started to refund the cost of electricity connection within a year from service connection.

An address from Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte was delivered by Acting City Administrator lawyer Zuleika Lopez.

"As local leaders, we recognize that much of the responsibility of improving the development of our localities rests upon us," the city mayor said.

United Mindanao

During the forum, Mindanao leaders agreed cities here should unite in improving its economy.

Sarangani City Mayor Darlene Custodio said economic ranking should not be a source for competition among Mindanao cities but instead should become a venue for local government units to come together and share strategies.

Cagayan de Oro Chamber of Commerce & Industry Foundation Inc. president J. Rafael Paguio said Mindanao's cities have common problems such as power and should unite in how to address these problems.

"I am happy enough to know that many of Mindanao's cities made it to the top ten ranking among. I believe cities here in Mindanao share a common situation. It doesn't matter to me to which city in Mindanao investment comes, so long as it's in Mindanao. I believe that so long as there is investment in one city, this would have a trickle down effect to its neighboring cities as it has in Davao and in Cagayan de Oro," said Paguio, also vice president of CDO Electric Power & Light Company Inc.

The forum was organized by the AIM Policy Center; the Local Implementation of National Competitiveness for Economic Growth; on partnership with the United States Agency International Development (AID).

Doing Business in the Philippines 2011 (Doing Business) is the second substantial report of the Doing Business series in the Philippines. The first was in 2008, quantitative indicators on business regulations were analyzed for 21 cities in 3 regions: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

This year the report expands the analysis to 25 cities, whose selection were based on the level of urbanization, population's size, economic activity, political and geographical diversity, and other factors.

Doing Business investigated the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. Regulations affecting 3 stages of life of a local business are measured at the sub-national level in the Philippines: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, and registering property.

The indicators are used to identify business reforms and the extent to which these have been effective in simplifying the procedures, saving time, and lowering the cost of doing business.

Published in the Sun.Star Davao newspaper on December 15, 2010.

Open skies set for Davao, Cebu, Zamboanga, Laoag
by Joyce Pangco Pañares

But the local airlines will still have the exclusive right to serve domestic routes as the executive order coming from President Benigno Aquino III will prohibit cabotage, an airline’s right to carry passengers between two domestic points.

PAL Holdings Inc. fell the most in seven weeks, leading Philippine carriers lower, after Ochoa made his announcement.

PAL, which controls the nation’s biggest carrier, sank 7.2 percent to P4.50, set for the steepest loss since Nov. 12.

Cebu Air Inc., the country’s biggest budget carrier, declined 2.8 percent to P111, set for the sharpest decrease since Dec. 17.

Valenzuela City Rep. Rex Gatchalian on Monday filed House Bill 1601 espousing a “pocket open-skies policy to boost tourism, liberalize air traffic, and prevent business disruption when an airline’s operations are snagged by a labor dispute.

The bill is being supported by the House leadership led by Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr.

“Open skies will usher in more competition and that will change the dynamics of the business,” said Rico Gomez at Rizal Commercial Banking Corp.

“Greater competition will always be difficult for entrenched players.”

President Benigno Aquino said in August that the government might give foreign carriers more access because of a labor row at Philippine Airlines

Why Calling Davao City Empty Makes It Full


It’s quite refreshing to receive emails from people you have not seen for a long time whether from relatives or friends and even people you do not know anymore or those you wish to forget, he he peace. But through techno tools, you are once more connected. Happy is the feeling until you come across message like this:

“Hi Grace, how’s real estate in my beloved city, is it the same empty place as before???…”

Eye-rolling has never been my habit, but running my fingers on the keys when something doesn’t sink in quickly is. The “empty” reference about my very own city took my subconscious aback, as exactly the time I received it while I was doing a research on the high-end real estate development projects in Davao. By the way, here’s the list and corresponding developers:

1. Amiya Resort Residences – Kisan Lu Lands Inc.

2. Camella Northpoint Condo – Vista Land & Camella Communities

3. Chula Vista Residences – Hemeni Land Corp.

4. Ciudad Verde – Sta. Lucia Realty & Development Inc.

5. Davao Riverfront Corporate Center – Sta. Lucia Realty & Development Inc.

6. Fern Wood – Alsons Development & Investment Corp.

7. Hacienda – DMC Urban Property Developers Inc.

8. Holiday Oceanview Samal – Holiday Garden Island Development Corp.

9. Kembali Coast – Filinvest Land Inc.

10. La Vista Monte – Santos Land Development Corp.

11. Las Palmas Verdes – Sta. Lucia Realty & Development Inc.

12. Las Terrazas – Alsons Development & Investment Corp.

13. Le Jardin de Villa Abrille – Filinvest Land Inc.

14. Linmarr Towers Condo – Solid Asian Marketing Corp.

15. Magallanes Residences – DMC Urban Property Developers Inc.

16. Montclair Highlands – Robinsons Homes

17. Monteritz Classic Estates – Robern Development Corp.

18. Mountain Haven – Mountain Haven Development Inc.

19. North Crest – Alsons Development & Investment Corp.

20. Ocean Cove – Filinvest Land Inc.

21. One Oasis Condo – Filinvest Land Inc.

22. Orange Grove – Filinvest Land Inc.

23. Orchid Hills – Holiday Garden Island Development Corp.

24. Palmetto Place – DMC Urban Property Developers Inc.

25. Playa Azalea – Landco Pacific Corp.

26. Positano – Crown Communities

27. Princess Homes – EDM Land Realty & Development Corp.

28. Priscilla Estates – Santos Land Development Corp.

29. Rancho Palos Verdes – Sta. Lucia Realty & Development Inc.

30. Royal Pines Davao – Royal Davao Development Corp.

31. Solariega – Crown Communities

32. South Pacific Golf & Leisure Estates – Sta. Lucia Realty & Development Inc.

33. Toscana – Crown Communities

34. Villa Azalea – Mountain Haven Development Corp.

35. Villa de Mercedes – Uraya Land Development Inc.

36. Villa Mercedita – Filinvest Land Inc.

And counting as I write…not mentioned here are the low cost housing projects on the rise than ever before.

Of course, these developments also do not include the ones I may have missed to cover in the high-end list or the commercial and business real estate projects going on in the city like the series of Ayala Malls and Business Centres. More projects are expected soon as the world’s largest city in terms of area keeps on welcoming investors, retirees, and vacation people, everyone to come. It sure sounds like a fast-pace city but as I am living here for 26 years and more, I can say it is literally peaceful and an ideal place for families to raise their children. How do you think it got the label, “most liveable city in the Philippines?” For me, it’s the fusion of nature’s peace and quiet and the patterns of industrialization. It’s the best of both worlds.

Davao City is a city of bloom and boom and the future looks bright for it’s a work in progress. I sent this same message to my email sender and she was enticed to go visit her city again after so many years of living abroad. After all I did not finish empty handed, I will see my friend again in our beautiful city to show her how full it has become.
