That way we will always have a lively commercial area near our condos.

We can just easily walk to these stores instead of walking all the way to Boni High Street.

The eyesore that could

By Daxim Lucas
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 02:36:00 06/15/2009

Filed Under: Economy and Business and Finance

MANILA, Philippines - For three decades, one of the first images of Makati City’s supposedly cosmopolitan skyline that would greet travelers coming from the airport is the hulking eyesore that stood half finished near the Magallanes interchange.

And whether you’re a commuter approaching the commercial center, or a businessman being driven to the central business district, you simply could not escape the sight of that decrepit building at the busy corner of Edsa and Pasong Tamo Extension.

“If you’re a businessman or a tourist who’s just landed in Manila and are traveling from the airport, this is the image of Makati that will greet you,” said Alphaland Corp. president and COO Mario Oreta. “It was such a painful sight to behold and the image lingers with you.”

Until several months ago, the unnamed structure, with its rusty beams and half-baked structure, always seemed to be somebody’s unfinished business.

It was built in the 1970s by a Japanese car distributor to supposedly house offices, a service center and a high-end restaurant.

During the Marcos era, the would-be developer ran short of cash, and was forced to surrender the lot to the Philippine National Bank.

Then in the mid-1980s, it was auctioned off to the Puyat family, in whose ownership it stayed for two decades.

Enter Alphaland Corp.—one of the newest and most aggressive real estate firms in the country—whose chair and CEO Roberto V. Ongpin took an interest in the project in early 2008.

“He asked me one day what I thought of the building, and I said that I thought we could make it work,” Oreta recalls.

Backed by the financial muscle of Alphaland’s partner, British fund Ashmore Investment Ltd., Ongpin, Oreta and the company’s vice chair Eric Recto negotiated long and hard with the Puyat family, agreeing finally on a P1.2-billion acquisition price.

The group borrowed another P1.2 billion from the Development Bank of the Philippines to fund the rehabilitation and completion of the structure—a process that is now practically complete, with only the finishing touches left.

Thus, what would have been one of the city’s first skyscrapers conceived in the 1970s, is now set to become one of its newest.

Dubbed Alphaland Southgate, the project is composed of two structures.

The Southgate Tower is a 20-story, glass-curtained building with 36,000 square meters of office space.

The Southgate Mall, meanwhile, is an 18,000-sq. m., six-story podium that will house retail and casual dining establishments.

And just as one couldn’t miss the eyesore before, one also could not possibly miss the gleaming metallic blue building nowadays, especially with its three-story high LED display screens, one on either side of the building, which are visible from as far as 7 kilometers away.

“This is practically a new building,” Oreta said, explaining that the steel trusses and girders were already encased in concrete when the original builders stopped construction, ensuring that no corrosion would occur.

Despite this, Alphaland hired the services of local and foreign structural engineers to assess the condition of the building before completing its construction.

“What they found was that it still meets and surpasses our building standards,” he said.

Oreta pointed out that Alphaland Southgate also boasts of a world-class design by Wong and Ouyang Ltd., the architects of Hong Kong’s premier recreational establishment, the Pacific Place.

The building’s energy requirements are also supported by solar panels and a “green” architectural design, which gives tenants the added benefit of saving power.

For a building that was erected when high technology was still in its infancy, Alphaland also pulled a coup when it secured an accreditation from the Philippine Economic Zone Authority as a business process outsourcing site.

“It is also linked to the Magallanes MRT station, so BPO workers will find this more convenient,” Oreta said.

Admittedly, Alphaland did worry when the global economic slump reached local shores, and one of the first industries to be hit was the real estate sector.

When the project started, the company originally announced that the building would be open for business by the first quarter of 2009.

That timetable has since been moved to August 2009.

Nonetheless, Oreta said he was encouraged by the firm demand from locators.

The mall space is already 80-percent taken, while office space reservations are approaching 50 percent, with negotiations for another large tenant is ongoing.

Don’t think that the company is resting on its laurels, though. Already, it is talking with the owners of a lot directly across Pasong Tamo Extension where it could build an exact duplicate of the Southgate Tower, which will be linked to the present complex via an elevated footbridge.

“All this is good business,” Oreta said. “But more importantly, we’re doing our part to improve the Makati skyline. Where there once was an eyesore, there now stands a gleaming new building.”

ATMW construction is on track for both towers with Tower 1 and 2 scheduled for Top-Off this year, September and November, respectively.

Megaworld to roll out 5 new residential condominium projects
By Zinnia B. Dela Peña Updated June 20, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines – Upscale property firm Megaworld Corp. is rolling out five new residential condominium projects this year estimated to generate around P12 billion in sales.

In a briefing with reporters following the company’s annual stockholders meeting yesterday, Megaworld executive director Kingson Sian said management remains upbeat about the growth of the real estate sector in spite of a tough business environment.

To sustain its growth, Megaworld is launching five residential building projects – Two Central (a prestigious high-rise building in Salcedo Village that will make available around 400 units), Tower Three in Eastwood City in Libis, Parkside Villas (a seven-cluster community that will rise beside the five-star Marriott Hotel in Newport City in Pasay), The Venice Residences (a seven-tower residential project in Mckinley Hill in Bonifacio Global City), and Morgan Suites Executive Residences (also within the 50-hectare Mckinley Hill township).

“We’re confident that our products will continue to sell. The growth will be slower than last year but is definitely better than 2007 figures. In general, we’re still happy with the results,” Sian said.

He said 2009 reservation sales can not replicate last year’s level, but will exceed the P5 billion recorded in 2007.

Rental income, on the other hand, is forecast to hit P2 billion this year compared with P1.3 billion in 2008 and P900 million in 2007.

Around 80 percent of the company’s sales come from residential projects while 10-15 percent come from lease operations.

“In 2009 and beyond, we will continue with the strategies that have helped us come this far in the game. For one thing, we will continue focusing on the middle-income and BPO markets, while tapping into the rich tourism sector for additional sources of revenues. We will also continue developing well-planned integrated communities that conform to our tested “live-work-play concept,” said tycoon Andrew Tan, chairman and president of Megaworld.

Sian added the company is allotting P8 billion to P10 billion for its capital expenditures this year, mostly for project development.

Part of the capex will be used to fund the construction of a new Richmonde hotel in Eastwood City. The new four-star hotel will offer up to 150 rooms with the development cost pegged at $70,000 per room. A third branch of the Richmonde Hotel is also being planned in Manila’s Binondo district where Megaworld is building a township called City place.

Sian said the group, through Travellers International Hotel Group, is venturing into the development of budget hotels to cater to a wider clientele base. The first of the several budget hotels planned this year will rise in Newport City, Megaworld’s 25-hectare urban resort complex across the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3.

He said Megaworld remains on the lookout for opportunities despite the prevailing global economic slowdown. “We’ve been constantly looking around. We have cash resources we can use especially now that market prices have gone down. This is definitely a good time to seize opportunities that come our way,” Sian said.

Megaworld expects to end the year with a net profit of P4.02 billion on revenues of P17.58 billion.
