RLC building first BPO office in South Luzon


By James A. Loyola


Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC), the property development arm of the Gokongwei group, is putting up an office building for the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry in its mixed-use complex in Naga City.

To be called Robinsons Cybergate Naga, it will be located in the Robinsons mixed-used complex that also includes the development of two hotel chains: Go Hotels and Summit Hotel.

The mall is slated for opening on August 15 this year while the office building is expected to be completed in the second semester of 2017.

“The building is registered with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) as an IT Center. Qualified locators at Robinsons Cybergate Naga may apply for various incentives from PEZA,” said RLC Office Buildings General Manager Faraday D. Go.

Go said Naga is an ideal location for BPO locators since there is strong government and private sector support and a highly proficient talent pool. There are several major universities in Bicol such as Ateneo de Naga and The University of Nueva Caceres.

The requisite telecommunications infrastructure is available from the major telecom providers PLDT and Globe. Naga is only 45 minutes from Manila by air and 6 to 8 hours by land.

    I guess it’s a good thing that companies are starting to emerge outside Metro Manila. Traffic getting really heavy and going to and from work is a hassle. I guess it’s good to start investing in real estate but since prices of properties in Metro Manila are increasing, I would probably look for properties nearby (ex. Cavite, Laguna). This is another way to divert from traffic. I came upon Micaraland’s website (https://www.micaraland.com/) and saw that they have affordable installment terms. One of my top choices.
