Why Avida Cloverleaf is a good investment

BALINTAWAK used to be synonymous with textile mills, wet markets and the cloverleaf-shaped interchange linking the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and EDSA.

But Balintawak’s image is getting an upgrade, as Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) continues to develop its mixed-use Cloverleaf project on the former site of textile mills owned by the Lim family.

The Ayala Malls Cloverleaf is now open at the master planned estate, while construction of Avida Towers Cloverleaf Tower 1 is now underway.

Seeing strong demand for its first tower, Avida Land launched last September the second of three planned buildings under Avida Towers Cloverleaf.

Ryla Czarina T. Durante, Avida Land Corp. project development associate manager, said Tower 2 has attracted buyers from Quezon City, as well as Caloocan, Malabon, and Navotas, and most were end-users.

She said the buyers recognized that Avida Towers Cloverleaf is a good investment because the area serves as the gateway to the north, with its access to the North Luzon Expressway and the Skyway Stage 3.

“Since the Skyway is connected to SLEX, they can also access the southern part of Luzon easier without going through the traffic on EDSA. The property is also connected to EDSA, as well as LRT and MRT stations,” she said during a briefing in Makati City on Nov. 21.

Ms. Durante described Avida Towers Cloverleaf as a “pocket urban haven.” And being located within an estate managed by the Ayala Property Management Group “offers a secure and organized living experience,” she added.

Also, Ms. Durante noted the price of units at Avida Towers Cloverleaf have doubled since Tower 1 was launched in July 2015.

“Since the launch of the first tower, the prices have gone up and this shows there’s high market potential and high appreciation of value in the property. With the developments and the infrastructure coming from the government as well, we foresee it is expected to increase over time,” she added.

Unit prices for Tower 2 range from P4.1 to P9.9 million, or about P180,000 per sq.m. To compare, Tower 1 had an average selling price of P95,000 per sq.m.

Tower 2 offers 848 units, with sizes ranging from studio at 23 square meters (sq.m.), junior one-bedroom (24 sq.m.), one-bedroom (33-37 sq.m.), and two-bedroom layouts (52 sq.m.).

The junior one-bedroom unit, which is priced at P4.4 million, is a new offering by Avida Land.

“We did that because we’d like to tap certain price points in the market. Given the awareness of buyers to attain financial prudence, the rising costs, this specific unit caters to that market because it’s very economical and efficiently designed. It has a partitioned wall, offering something similar to a one-bedroom, but in a smaller space,” Ms. Durante said.

In line with ALI’s sustainability efforts, Tower 2 has green building design features such as low emissivity glass windows and occupancy sensors.

“Our windows are designed in such a way that the glass when light passes through it, reflects the heat and maintains the temperature of the unit, effectively the home owners would use less the cooling appliances,” Ms. Durante said.

Rain water harvesting has also been incorporated in the tower’s design. The collected rainwater will be used for watering the landscaped areas.

“All of these items when taken together, makes their operations more efficient, and less cost for the residents,” she said.

Tower 2’s amenities include a clubhouse, swimming pool, children’s playground, indoor gym, landscaped spaces, and serenity gardens. It is set to be completed in 2024.

Ayala Land pouring P18B for Habini Bay project

DAVAO CITY — Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) is spending about P18 billion for its 526-hectare Habini Bay estate located in the towns of Alubijid and Laguindingan in Misamis Oriental province.

Enrique B. Manuel, Jr., ALI assistant vice-president and estate head, said of this amount, about P4 billion will be spent for the first phase of the mixed-use complex, including the construction of an industrial park that will be managed by another Ayala company, Laguna Technopark, Inc. (LTI).

“Expected to be completed in 2022, the fund for the first phase would be spent on land development, the launch of the LTI (-managed park) as well as some concessions for the partner locators,” Mr. Manuel said in an e-mail interview with BusinessWorld.

The industrial park component is intended to attract manufacturers of electronics, automotive, pharmaceuticals and consumer products.

“The total budget for the project will exclude the capital expenditures of locators,” he added.

The company sees the project generating about 2,000 jobs in the initial phase, mostly in construction, and about 4,000 jobs upon full operations.

“We are hopeful that we will bring in inclusive growth by providing jobs and opportunities for the Mindanaoans in the area, and that we will do starting very soon,” said Mr. Manuel in an earlier message.

The project, a joint venture of ALI and its mother company Ayala Corp., is expected to become a trade and commerce center in the Northern Mindanao Region, the company said in a statement last month.

The estate will also have residential and commercial components, and will be home to the new local government center of Laguindingan town.

It will also have a bus terminal, a sea port and a school.

The company said Habini Bay is also designed with “pedestrian and bike-friendly roads to encourage a healthy modern lifestyle in an integrated and sustainable estate.”

ALI allots up to P10 billion for Seda Hotel expansion

AYALA LAND, Inc. (ALI) will be spending P8-10 billion until 2020 for the expansion of its homegrown hotel brand, as Seda Hotel enters new locations while expanding existing developments.

“The total investment is maybe around P8 to 10 billion for the future developments. This is the budget for today and the new properties (until 2020),” Seda Hotel Senior Group General Manager Andrea Mastellone said during a press briefing in Taguig City on Monday.

The listed property developer is set to launch in 2019 a second tower for Seda Bonifacio Global City (BGC) with 342 additional rooms, 214 rooms for Seda Cebu IT Park, and 293 rooms for Seda Residences Makati.

ALI decided to expand Seda BGC given the strong demand from the international corporate market in the area, noting that there are only a few players present in the city. Seda BGC is the company’s top performer in terms of revenues, with an average occupancy rate of 80% coupled with room rates of about P6,000 to P8,000 per day.

“The occupancy varies according to the areas, but the busiest is here in BGC. We’ve experienced fabulous occupancy since two months after opening, we were fully booked almost every day. We are still experiencing minimum 80%,” Mr. Mastellone said.

Across the group, Seda enjoys an average occupancy rate of about 80%.

All three hotels to be opened in 2019 will be the first in Seda’s portfolio to feature serviced residences, as the company looks to cater to guests who stay longer than two to three days.

In particular, all units at Seda Residences Makati and Seda Cebu IT Park will be serviced residences, while Seda BGC will have 48 serviced apartments.

“These guests are mostly business travelers on assignments for months and who would opt for temporary dwellings that are bigger than a hotel room, with basic home conveniences,” Seda Group Director of Sales and Marketing Melissa J. Carlos said during the press briefing.

Mr. Mastellone noted that the serviced residence concept will only be established in business districts, as there will not be much demand in the provinces.

The company will further unveil 350 rooms at Seda Manila Bay in Aseana City, Parañaque and 206 rooms at the second tower of Seda Nuvali.

The expansion forms part of the company’s plan to have 3,268 rooms across 11 locations by 2020. ALI currently has 1,863 room across nine locations, namely BGC, Cagayan de Oro, Davao City, Nuvali in Laguna, Iloilo, Quezon City, Bacolod, Cebu, and Palawan.

“With 1,863 rooms now in our portfolio and having achieved most of our annual targets, we are confident that our goal of building 1,405 more rooms in the next two years to hit our target of 3,268 rooms by 2020 is achievable and will be positively received by the market,” Ms. Carlos said.

Ayala Land tightens hold on Prime Orion

AYALA LAND, Inc. (ALI) has strengthened its grip on real estate logistics and industrial estate developer Prime Orion Philippines, Inc. (POPI) via an P800-million share purchase through Laguna Technopark, Inc. (LTI).

In a disclosure to the stock exchange on Monday, the listed property giant said its executive committee has approved the acquisition of a 20% equity interest in LTI held by Japan’s Mitsubishi Corp. This is equivalent to 8,051 common shares valued at a total of P800 million.

ALI will then exchange the 20% equity interest in LTI for additional shares of stock in POPI consisting of 323.89 million common shares.

“This will strengthen POPI’s vision to be the leading real estate logistics and industrial estate developer and operator in the Philippines,” the company said.

ALI first acquired the Tutuban Center operator in 2015, with an initial stake of 51.36%. The company then increased its interest to 54.91%, further hiking its direct ownership to 63.9% in March 2018.

Following ALI’s acquisition, it has been positioning POPI to become a leading property logistics player in the country. It was able to acquire a majority stake in LTI, which manages the 460-hectare Laguna Technopark in Santa Rosa as well as a 135-hectare Cavite Technopark in the municipality of Naic.

POPI recently allotted P1 billion to develop a logistics and warehousing facility in Laguna Technopark. The Standard Factory Building (SFB) will house a total leasable area of more than 60,000 square meters (sq.m.) divided into 40 units sized 1,200 to 1,500 sq.m. each.

The company expects to complete the warehouse by October 2020, but it will be available for lease to non-PEZA locators starting on May this year.

POPI also has two industrial parks in the pipeline, with the first located in Cagayan de Oro near the Laguindingan airport. The company will offer 42 parcels of land with cuts of 7,000 sq.m. each. The second industrial park will be in Central Luzon.

Meanwhile, the company is also in the process of rehabilitating Tutuban Center. Since the Ayala group’s entry, POPI has expanded Tutuban’s gross leasable area to 53,000 sq.m., while also introducing new retail and wholesale concepts.

POPI’s net income attributable to the parent soared 122% to P189.47 million in the first nine months of 2018, following a 328% surge in revenues to P1.94 billion.

For ALI, attributable profit climbed 17% to P20.78 billion in the nine-month period, as gross revenues went up 21% to P119.68 billion.
