Rockwell to start work on
Lopez Tower, BPO projects

ROCKWELL Land Corp. is set to
pour some P10 billion into different
property development and construc-
tion projects, including the shelved
Lopez Tower, in the next five years.
The company plans to allot P2B
for the development of its new resi-
dential towers in Rockwell Center
and the construction of a business
process outsourcing (BPO) facility
in Ortigas this year alone.
Rockwell president Nestor Padilla
said that the company has the money
to fund its projects and can tap into a
P2.5B facility being offered by two
financial institutions should the need
for additional funding arise.
The construction of the Lopez
Tower, which was shelved when the
Asian financial crisis hit in 1997,
may also push through this year.
“That is a 60,000-square-meter
gross leasable landmark tower that
can house a 65-story building and I
think the time is right for us to revisit
it,” Padilla said, adding that the tow-
er will complete Rockwell Center as
a self-contained center, with residen-
tial, office, mall and school.
“If we start the development of the
Lopez Tower this year, it will take us
four years to finish it,” Padilla noted.

found it in another thread.i'm so excited about this!

Rockwell raises P2B from corporate notes

Lopez-Owned property developer Rockwell Land Corp. is issuing seven-year fixed rate corporate notes worth P2 billion for a plan to put up office buildings.

In a statement, the company said First Metro Investment Corp., a Metropolitan Bank subsidiary, and Philippine Commercial Capital, Inc. were tapped as the joint managers and lead underwriters.

Ninalyn S. Cordero, assistant vice-president for business development, said the issuance would be released in two tranches.

"It will be drawn in two tranches. The first tranch will be on August and the second one will be on first quarter next year," she said.

She declined to disclose the price for the bond issue.

Ms. Cordero said proceeds from the issuance would be used primarily for the construction of Rockwell’s business process outsourcing (BPO) complex in the Ortigas business district.

The BPO complex is Rockwell Land’s first project outside its 15.5-hectare Rockwell Center.

The Lopez-led firm said the BPO complex would rise on a 1.3-hectare property owned by the Manila Electric Co., which has a 51% stake in the firm.

The BPO complex, which is based on a campus-like concept, will consist of three buildings spaced far apart and spread between greenery.

The first tower will have 20 floors, while the second and third towers will have 15 and 10 floors, respectively.

The first and second towers are expected to be completed by the end of 2008.

Ms. Cordero, in an earlier interview, said the project would bring over 70,000 square meters of preferred office space aimed at addressing the growing demand for work environment catering to the needs of the booming BPO sector.

Rockwell Land, the property arm of Lopez’s holding group, is also planning to build the "Lopez Center" within the year.

The firm has allotted up to P5 billion for the 65-storey structure, which will rise on 65,000-square meter lot behind the Power Plant Mall in Makati City.

The building will be fully operational by year 2011 as construction will take three to four years.

The Lopez Center, the firm said, would cater to international companies that will house their main headquarters in the building.


Rockwell Land plans to go public to raise funds for this project. The firm aims to secure $100 million from the shares sale.

Previous projects of Rockwell Land included residential condominiums like One Rockwell, The Manansala and the Joya. — Lovely Nica P. Lee
