Robinsons Land buys another land parcel in Fort Bonifacio
By Zinnia B. Dela Peña
The Philippine Star 05/08/2007


Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC), the property unit of Gokongwei holding firm JG Summit Holdings Inc., has acquired another property in the fast-growing Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

The lot, measuring 9,819 square meters, is strategically located in the prime section of the Global City South District, RLC said in a statement.

This latest acquisition follows its recent purchase of 9,118 sqm. property along the upscale McKinley Drive corner Fifth Avenue, bringing RLC’s major twin acquisitions close to two hectares of prime property, the single largest block of property available in Bonifacio Global City.

The property will be developed into a three-tower premium residential condominium supported by upscale retail shops plus a commercial component, RLC said.

The project, dubbed as The Trion Towers, will be launched in the third quarter of this year.

Flat and loft-type units will be available in 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom models — all designed to address the discerning tastes of mega Manila’s populace, Fil-Ams, balikbayans, professionals, investors and expatriates.

RLC is now finalizing the master-plan to fully maximize usage of the property. It plans to pattern the project after master developments in bustling cities like Shanghai and Dubai.

"One major design aspect is the introduction of buildings in a triangle formation, where each tower is linked by a bridgeway via a podium-like activity theme park — all buildings will be designed to fittingly embrace the ‘central park’, fully maximizing the residential wellness, green-livability and value of the property," RLC said.

RLC president Frederick Go said the acquisition manifests the company’s continued confidence on the country’s economy and the real estate industry as well.

Other properties within the Global City are the two sold out projects — the 38-story Fifth Avenue Place, the 43-story Mckinley Park Residences and the recently-launched The Fort Residences.

RLC has earmarked around P15 billion in the next two years for the development of new malls, office buildings and housing projects, and acquisition of new properties. About 40 percent of the programmed capital budget will be used to build new malls in Dumaguete, Bulacan, Paco in Manila, Tagaytay and Davao as well as to refurbish existing shopping centers in Ermita, Manila and Bacolod.

Around 30 percent will go to the establishment of new office buildings catering to business process outsourcing firms. RLC is currently constructing seven residential condominium buildings: Fifth Avenue Place and McKinley Park Residences in Fort Bonifacio Global City, Gateway Garden Ridge and One Gateway Place in Robinsons Pioneer Complex, One Adriatico Place, Two Adriatico Place and Otis 888 Residences in Manila; and two office buildings — Robinsons Cybergate 2 and Robinsons Cybergate 3.

For its mall expansion, RLC is redeveloping a portion of Robinsons Galleria mall, called West Wing, which is expected to be completed before the end of the year. It is also expanding Robinsons Place Manila by constructing The Midtown Wing and constructing Robinsons Place Otis 888, a strip mall fronting its residential development project in Paco, Manila.

Business World, May 8, 2007


Gokongwei-led Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) is reinforcing its presence in the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig with its fifth acquisition of a 9,819-square meter property.

Boosting its land bank, RLC is now finalizing the master plan to optimize the “highly prized vacant property” in the Bonifacio Global City’s South District intended to mimic the master developments in Shanghai and Dubai.

The Trion Towers, which is a three-tower premium residential condominium, will be introduced to the market next quarter.

The company did not disclose the acquisition value.

“The latest acquisition demonstrates RLC’s continued confidence in the company’s projects and on the country’s property sector,” President and chief operating officer Frederick D. Go said in a statement.

Retail shops and commercial components will support the residential project.

Flat and loft type units will be available in one-, two- and three- bedroom models designed to attract mega Manila’s populace, Filipino-Americans, balikbayans, professionals, investors and expatriates.

The listed property firm will introduce buildings in a triangle formation, where each tower is linked by a bridgeway via a “podium-like activity park” all buildings will be designed to be a “central park” and full maximize the “residential wellness, greenlivability and value of the property.”

“(RLC) plans to introduce an upgraded ‘value concept’ by providing real choices for its target clientele. It plans to harness new building technology, greenlivability and cutting edge ergo designs,” the statement read.

Two weeks ago, RLC bought a 9,188 square property along the upscale McKinley Drive corner Fifth Avenue following after its sold out projects in he area, namely, the 38-storey Fifth Avenue Place and the 43-storey McKinley Park Residences aside from the 28-storey The Fort Residences.

At the Philippine Stock Exchange, RLC shares closed unchanged at P17.50 yesterday.

After thinking about it - It has to be "B"

Isn't there a law that you can't build a high rise beside a diplomatic building?
So "A" can't be the location...

RLC has several lots.

B is correct

The Trion lot (i think it's the trion lot but for sure it's robinsons) is nearer Soma/Infinity. Theres a big undeveloped lot there na 1 hectare righ tbeside the cemetary.

There are rumours of an RLC buy in city center as well. Very bullish these guys.

After reading the articles above you are right lot "B" is just one of RLC's lots.
Would be nice to know where the exact location on "Trion Tower" if its near Soma and Infinity that would be a good location for RLC so that their projects are all spead apart over FBGC.

^^ Hi Rick. Lot B per your designation (Fifth Ave. corner McKinley Parkway) was indeed bought by Robinsons but not for Trion but for a yet unnamed high-end twin towers. If I were to speculate and make an educated guess based on info I've read so far, Trion could actually be on that contiguous lot beside Lot B and across the Singapore Embassy from McKinley Parkway. My guess only so please don't take my word for it. Maybe somebody in the know can actually confirm if such is indeed the case. :)

not sure but about 90%, the lot is the one in between the circle of the patay na amerikano and the soma. The unfinished road with lot. Iyan iyun area.

Wala na ang conservatorium.

Shangrila is interested in the area with the superlots along 5th and the hi street continuation.

^^ That Manila Golf Crest seems to be standing on Icon or Avant's lot. Definitely scrapped for that reason, but can be relocated elsewhere.
