Megaworld sets foundation for BPO triangle hub
BY ALBERT CASTRO

Quote:
Andrew Tan-led Megaworld Corp. is setting the stage for the development of its business process outsourcing (BPO) "triangle" hub following the groundbreaking last week for the development of its Iloilo Business Park project, complementing the company’s office-space developments in Metro Manila and a similarly-planned development in Cebu Province.

The 54.5-hectare Iloilo project will initially have Richmonde Hotel/Tower as locator. Richmonde will be a combination of hotel and office building complex with a retail component which will be completed by the latter part of next year, the company said.

"The Iloilo Business Park is an important component of the BPO triangle I am envisioning that will make the Philippines an exciting and thriving BPO destination worldwide," said Tan, chairman of Megaworld.

Tan said this is the second leg of the BPO triangle.

Another project, the one in Cebu is yet to be formally launched.

Magaworld has set aside a 5,000 sq.m. development for an office space in the 25-hectare property near Shangri-La Resort Hotel in Mactan, Cebu.

"The Iloilo Business Park marks the second leg of our BPO triangle after our two cyberparks in Metro Manila, with the final leg to be launched in the next few years. Together, these will give BPO investors strong prospects not just based on location but the human resource component as well. Early on, we decided to launch our BPO presence (in Iloilo) considering that Ilonggos naturally have a pleasant vocal tone, are highly educated and are very hardworking," Tan said.

Both the Iloilo and Cebu properties were acquired by Megaworld in 2007.

Metro Manila is the apex of the BPO hub triangle.

The property used to be the site of an airport that Megaworld bought for P1.2 billion from the government through an auction.

Part of the company’s plan is to turn the area into a central business district in Iloilo, with BPO offices, office buildings, educational facilities, residential projects, a hotel, a convention center as well as retail and recreational areas.

The Iloilo Business Park was granted a certification by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority as an information technology (IT) park in January this year, ensuring BPO locators at Richmonde Tower perks such as income tax holidays, duty-free importation of office equipment and repatriation of earnings, among others.

At 54.5 hectares, Iloilo Business Park is the largest IT park yet of Megaworld.

Megaworld said it will be initially spend P2.5 billion for the Iloilo project which will be used to develop road network and finance the initial construction.

The 12-story Richmonde Hotel will host 90 guest rooms, ranging from superior rooms to junior suites.

Its seventh level amenities deck features play amenities such as a lap pool, children’s pool and fitness center, while the business center on the same level will include meeting rooms and a conference room.

Richmonde Hotel Iloilo is the third project of Megaworld under this hotel brand. The hotel is projected to serve businessmen and tourists who flock annually to witness Iloilo City’s historic and colorful festivals.

The Richmonde Tower meanwhile will occupy the second to sixth floors of the hotel, offering more than 9,000 square meters of prime office space for BPO locators. Both projects are slated for completion within the next two years.

Kingson Sian, executive director of Megaworld at the time of the unveiling of the BPO hub triangle said they were already talking with potential locators.

In Cebu, Megaworld is eyeing to spend P2.5 billion as initial outlay to develop the property.

After initially locating in prime areas in Manila, these firms have trained their sites on second tier cities for their talent pool as well as lower rental rate, benefitting Megaworld’s push to have BPO hubs in areas like Iloilo and Cebu.

Helloooooo!

Visionary tycoon initiates BPO triangle strategy
(The Philippine Star)

Quote:
This businessman is no other than Andrew Tan, chairman & CEO of Megaworld Corporation. Now a taipan, the chief of the country’s #1 BPO office landlord is enticing BPO companies and executives to venture out beyond Metro Manila and help spur development in the countryside.

The tycoon declared, “Now that we have successfully engineered, and continue to build up, the concentration of BPO activities in Metro Manila via our three cyberparks – Eastwood City, McKinley Hill and Newport City – it is high time that we at Megaworld embark on developing the urban countryside as well, specifically Iloilo and Cebu, with our high-profile BPO projects. Together with our cyberparks in Metro Manila, Iloilo Business Park and The Mactan Newtown encapsulate our BPO triangle strategy.

Taipan Andrew Tan of Megaworld envisions a ‘BPO triangle’ that will make the country even more globally competitive. “All three offer BPO companies advantages in terms of location, lease prices and talent. Iloilo and Cebu are highly urbanized and their university systems produce quality graduates annually. The locals, due to their native dialects, have a pleasant vocal intonation that BPO firms can take advantage of in servicing their clients,” Tan shared.

He added that once BPO firms expand into the countryside, this will improve family incomes and create a ripple effect in related industries in these two provinces plus their neighbors.

Megaworld started constructing the Richmonde Tower in Iloilo Business Park last May. The BPO component of this tower will run from the second to sixth floor, offering more than 9,000 square meters of prime office space for BPO locators. The upper floors, meanwhile, are slated for Richmonde Hotel Iloilo. The hotel will host 90 guest rooms, ranging from superior rooms to junior suites. Its seventh-level amenities deck features play amenities such as a lap pool, children’s pool and fitness center, while the business center on the same level will include meeting rooms and a conference room.

The first retail component of the project, Festive Walk, will be completed in the latter part of 2012. With these anchor projects, Megaworld aspires to turn the 54.5-hectare former Iloilo Airport into a new business center in Western Visayas.

With its strong Work-Play-Learn components, Megaworld is projecting that Iloilo Business Park will fill more than 24,000 seats for the BPO sector, whereas its retail component will infuse more than 200,000 square meters of space for the commercial sector. All in all, Megaworld expects to help create about 40,000 new jobs within Iloilo City, thus helping spur up the local economy.

Megaworld expects to create, through its locators, 2,000 new jobs in Cebu with these first two BPO towers.

Since all of Megaworld’s cyberparks are Peza-certified IT parks, locators to any project within Megaworld’s BPO triangle are entitled to exclusive perks such as income tax holidays, duty-free importation of office equipment, hiring of expatriates and repatriation of earnings, among others.

“With our BPO triangle strategy, we as a company are making our contribution to help the Philippine BPO industry reach its five-year goal. As the industry is expected to generate US$11 billion in export revenues this year, with more prime office space in the pipeline from Megaworld in strategic locations in Metro Manila, Iloilo and Cebu, we will certainly help propel the BPO industry to register $25 billion in exports by 2016,” Tan declared.

New and expanding BPO firms may check out the advantages of locating in Megaworld’s BPO triangle by calling the Business Development division at (02) 912-0708 or checking out www.megaworldcorp.com.

I went to Iloilo last Nov and personally saw this edifice. Very nice and truly reflects Iloilo as a heritage place in the Philippines. Sana ganyan din ka-massive ang planned city hall ng Davao. Congrats, Iloilo. I heard that the city hall staff are temporarily housed in Robinson's. Ti, basi nalipat na cla sini kay dw namit nato ila lugar didto haw.

they will be transferred when the City hall will be fully finished, Rob is also in the process of something big once the temporary city hall vacates.
