Outsourcing Transforms PH Cities

Business Hubs Perfect for Outsourcing Providers in the Philippines

Recent information shows that Megaworld, one of the Philippines’ frontrunners in the property development segment, is eyeing to construct 10 "townships" valued at $5 billion within the country. These townships will be fashioned based specifically on the needs of business process outsourcing (BPO) companies. This proves that outsourcing is an integral factor in the evolution of the country’s major cities.

Bloomberg anticipates that these townships will yield about 16 million square feet of office space over the decade. However, the office spaces will only be the focal point of a much larger plan which includes residential and commercial properties.

It’s actually a concrete plan wherein travelling to and from the office will be much easier for BPO workers, especially the ones clocking in for the graveyard shift, if they live within the township. It would also be more convenient if the operating hours of shops are similar to the schedule of the workers.

The design of the townships of Megaworld will also be based on its prominent development called Eastwood. The business and residential hub boasts of 40 acres and is only eight miles from the center of Manila.

Megaworld is also planning to develop townships outside Manila. These hubs will be located in Iloilo, Davao, and Lapu-Lapu in Cebu, all of which are in southern and central Philippines.
