Ayala Land breaks ground for Atria Technohub; expands footprint in Iloilo City
Atria Gardens will be home to a commercial and lifestyle hub with the offices as anchors. ALI President and CEO Bernard Vincent Dy and LGU representatives led the launch of the two new office buildings totaling 25,500 square meters of gross leasable floor area.
With the addition of these buildings in ALI’s portfolio, ALI continues to expand its footprint within and outside Metro Manila especially in high potential provincial sites like Iloilo City.
“With the city’s rapidly expanding BPO market, we break ground on Atria Technohub. This is envisioned to be a BPO campus and the business address of choice of top BPO investors in this region. The strategic cluster of office buildings, supported by sprawling retail and civic spaces, will not only cater to the rising demand for office spaces but will also significantly contribute to the vibrant local economy,” said Dy.
Atria Technohub will continue to uphold the Ayala brand of architecture and building systems while keeping sustainability in mind particularly in how the natural landscape is incorporated in the design. There will be open spaces and walkways that will make pedestrian mobility within the property as seamless and convenient as possible.
Apart from the new office towers, Atria Gardens will have a shopping and dining components set in a park setting. It will have a high street experience celebrating the best in local and global retail concepts and first in Western Visayas flagship outlets.
“The quality of education also remains high, with institutions in the region producing quality graduates to support the expansion of offices all over the city. All these and more, make Iloilo City a preferred location for local and foreign BPO investors,” added Dy.
ALI first ventured into Iloilo city in 2012. Since then, Atria Park District has become one of Iloilo City’s major residential, commercial, business, educational, and medical hubs due with Qualimed, Seda, Avida, The Shops at Atria, and Ateneo de Iloilo.
The City of Iloilo has become a rapidly emerging market posting the highest per capita GDP of P280,356 among the eight economies in Western Visayas in 2021. The city has continued to attract investors with its stable economic growth and improved business-investment environment making this it an ideal investment destination in the South.
Today, Iloilo’s economy is driven by a wider range of industries including agribusiness, tourism, BPOs, trading activities and service driven firms including banks, educational institutions, hospitals, among others.
