Andrew Tan sees industrial estate as another profit source

Not satisfied with the billions of dollars he makes from his diversified companies, billionaire taipan Andrew Tan has trained his eyes on the development of a 200-hectare property in Tanza, Cavite that will cost P5 billion to complete.
 
The project will be undertaken by Megaworld, Tan’s flagship company that has constructed  several apartment buildings claimed to have been presold.
 
The industrial estate project, latest in Souther Luzon, will be undertaken by Suntrust Ecotown, a major player in the property development market in the Laguna-Cavite area.
 
Suntrust Ecotown will become Southern Luzon’s latest industrial zone to be developed by unit Suntrust Properties, already a key player in property development in the Laguna-Cavite area.
 
Suntrust will apply Megaworld’s mantra of “live-work-play” in its industrial estate development.
 
“Megaworld’s entry into industrial park development leads us to an innovative blueprint that will entice more foreign locators to invest in the Philippines. Suntrust Ecotown is designed to respond to the needs of dynamic export-oriented
industries and to exceed their expectations by offering lifestyle amenities never seen before in any industrial park,” said Jericho P. Go,  Megaworld senior vice president.
 
Megaworld in a statement said it is offering an initial 107 industrial lots that will cater to export-oriented industries such as electronics, home appliances, computer parts, car assemblies, fabric and textile goods, food products, pharmaceuticals, machineries, chemicals, and other industrial products.
 
“It is also positioned to be the major hub for world-class light to medium export-oriented industries, residential, commercial, and institutional establishments in the south,” the company said.
 
Of the initial 111 hectares available,  24 percent has been sold to 35 locators, mostly for the expansion of existing locators of neighboring 287-hectare Cavite economic zone  in Rosario town.
 
Sold at an initial  price of P5,000 per square meter, the industrial portion is estimated to generate P5.55 billion in revenues.
 
The company is not treating the industrial estate development as a recurring income venture, given that the properties are sold to locators,  Go said.
 
Another 40 hectares is dedicated for the expansion of the industrial park and the integration of lifestyle amenities such as a hotel, commercial and retail hubs, driving range, mini golf course, putting greens, swimming pool, jogging path, basketball and badminton courts and open parks. Another  50 hectares has been set aside for  future development that may include residential and other recreational facilities.
 
“Suntrust Ecotown is a breakthrough industrial park because this is the country’s first integrated industrial park accredited by PEZA (Philippine Economic Zone Authority) with lifestyle amenities. We are looking into further expanding the development to 350 hectares in the near future,” said  Harrisson Paltongan, Suntrust Properties president.
 
 “We expect to generate around 500,000  jobs (direct and indirect) within eight years in the industrial park. We look forward to hundreds of companies to locate in Suntrust Ecotown and the job generation it will bring to Filipinos,” Paltongan added.
 
Megaworld said the industrial park will feature community offerings such as PEZA and Bureau of Customs offices where tenant-locators can fast-track their business permit requirements, as well as its own administration office, fire station, chapel, parking for container vans, guardhouse, and transport terminal.
 
“The reason we are very bullish is due to a lot of factors. We’ve heard some much about labor cost in China and there are some political issues in Southeast Asia. In other places they’ve become less attractive,” said Paltongan.
 
“This also came about because in 2011 we saw a 40 percent in direct investment in industries. Lots of things happening during this time and it has always been the Philippines that has come out first in  surveys of where to invest,” he added, noting how labor costs in China have become more expensive than the Philippines, Vietnam under labor unrest and Thailand reeling from recent flooding.
 
“Many people realized that a back-up operation in another territory is needed to ensure the continuation of operation,” said Paltongan.
 
Go said Suntrust Ecotown will position itself as a new alternative industrial park because of its strategic location --- close proximity to major airports and seaports as well as business districts such as Makati CBD, Ortigas Center, Fort Bonifacio, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Manila Port and Batangas Port; and accessibility to main thoroughfares such as SLEX (South Luzon Expressway) and Cavite Expressway (Cavitex).
 
“There’s a room for growth within the Suntrust Ecotown because we have more areas allotted for future expansion that can accomodate more locators and will allow us to put residential areas, new commercial establishments, and other fresh inspirations of our pioneering live, work, and play township lifestyle concept,” he said.
 
Megaworld said  the industrial park will be limited to non-polluting light to medium industries that have superior facilities for waste management. It will also have tree-lined highways, round-the-clock security, spacious parks and planting strips, and e-shuttle services.
 
Suntrust Properties, Inc. has made a name in affordable vertical and horizontal residences in Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Manila, Pasig, Quezon City, Mandaluyong, Baguio, and Davao. Its projects consists of subdivision and condominium enclaves.
