Ortigas Center equipped to house BPO operations

According to the latest report from Tholons, which ranked Manila, Philippines as the second top destination for business process outsourcing (BPO) operations, the sector is said to be motivating business districts like the Ortigas Center to optimize capabilities and competitiveness in hopes of attracting potential outsourcing investors who are looking to expand and set up operations in the country.

According to Sheila Lobien, head of project leasing and director of global real estate services firm JLL Philippines, Ortigas Center opened seven office towers with an accumulated gross leasable area of 15,200 sqm. this year. This mirrors the strong demand for space. In fact, 70 percent (105,500 sqm.) of new supply has already been pre-committed.  

Majority of the new buildings in Ortigas Center, including Robinsons Cyberscape Alpha, are well-equipped to be the new homes of BPO locators due to their proximity to labor pools throughout Metro Manila.

Lobien noted that Ortigas Center has an edge because it has an excellent selection of malls, 24/7 restaurants, and other after-work options that BPO employees prefer. On top of that, Ortigas Center can be easily accessed through various modes of transport in many of Manila’s main roads like Shaw Boulevard, EDSA, and Ortigas Avenue.

As the BPO industry continues to grow at an average of 20 percent annually, Lobien said Cybergate Alpha is one of the superior real estate solutions that can accommodate expansion and growth.
