CEBU: The New Frontier For BPO

Metro Manila has long served as the home of the increasingly vibrant business process outsourcing industry. A report by Colliers International last year said that in 2011 alone, BPO companies occupied about 40 percent of the 5.7 million square meters of office space in the metro. Today, with the intention of expanding the reach and scope of their operations, BPO firms are eyeing areas outside the National Capital Region. Cebu, set in the Visayas, the Philippines' geographical heart, is emerging as one of the most preferred locations.

As the pioneering developer of BPO offices in the country, Megaworld is growing its inventory strategically and in the direction where the market is headed. Its new cyber park in Mactan, Cebu, features the recently completed One World Center, Megaworld's five-level flagship office building offering more than 6,000 square meters of space. The nearly 6,500-square-meter Two World Center, meanwhile, is under way. In the pipeline are Eight Newtown Boulevard, Pacific Garden Tower and Pacific World Tower, which all host BPO offices.

Megaworld is not just building high-tech offices exclusively— it's transplanting the successful live-work-play-shop concept it popularized in Metro Manila to Cebu. The cyber park is part of the Mactan Newtown Center, the company's 16.2-hectare township combining workplaces with luxury condominium residences, leisure amenities and a variety of retail attractions, including a hotel.

Like all Megaworld developments, the Mactan Newtown Center features a strategic location. It is minutes away from Mactan Circumferential Road, which links directly to the Mactan Airport Road, putting the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, the country's second busiest international airport, only 10 minutes away. For Cebu-based BPO professionals that need to fly to nearby provinces, Metro Manila or even abroad for business, this is a big plus.

Mactan Newtown Center is adjacent to Shangri-La Mactan and Portofino along the Hilutungan Channel and near Magellan Bay, making the beach resort lifestyle even more accessible. Employees can look forward to working in an environment surrounded by sand, surf and sea—a fun, refreshing change from the quintessential corporate setting that is all urban sprawl and concrete jungle. Meanwhile, the nearby Marcelo Fernan Bridge links the Mactan Newtown Center to commercial and business hubs in the larger island of Cebu.
