ARTHALAND, the country’s foremost developer of sustainable and green properties, is off to a strong start this 2021 with the on-time topping off of the Savya Financial Center North Tower in ARCA South. The two tower sustainable office development was launched in 2019 and its first building, the North Tower, was built in partnership with Mitsubishi Estate, one of the largest real estate developers in Japan. Savya Financial Center will be a next generation 24/7 global business address that will feature an array of top-class amenities, a fully-integrated retail area, zero contact building features, and generous green and open spaces. Many locators, particularly multinational companies, will most certainly appreciate the innovative technology, sustainability, and wellness features that have been incorporated in the building’s design.
“From the very beginning, we have been aligned with ARTHALAND’s corporate vision to create high quality and sustainable buildings for our next generation. Through this strong partnership, the Savya Financial Center became our company’s first venture in the Philippines. The success of this development will certainly become the foundation for our long-term partnership with ARTHALAND,” said Masato Aikawa, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Estate Asia.
As part of their constant pursuit to push innovation in its projects, ARTHALAND and Mitsubishi Estate are introducing key technologies to include remote virtual concierge and semi-autonomous security surveillance robots that promote a safer, contactless office environment. Through its sustainable and wellness features, Savya’s occupants will also benefit from the healthier workplace ecosystem, higher workforce efficiency, and substantial savings in energy costs, making it an ideal location for both multinational and local companies to transfer or consolidate.
“Our company, ARTHALAND, is making good on its commitment to all stakeholders to top-off the North Tower of Savya Financial Center on schedule. Building on the success of our world-renowned and multi-awarded Arthaland Century Pacific Tower in Bonifacio Global City and the Cebu Exchange in Cebu City, Savya Financial Center is poised to become the preferred address in what will be the most highly connected business district in the country,” said Jaime C. González, Vice Chairman and President of ARTHALAND.
A highly connected and synchronized growth center, ARCA South makes for the perfect working environment attuned to the needs of different organizations. This premier business district connects you to several host services in the area through its connective infrastructure, strategic masterplan, and its very own intermodal transport system. Strategically located within this upcoming growth center, Savya Financial Center will provide seamless access to Metro Manila and the global business community through various new transportation networks such as the Southeast Metro Manila Expressway, Metro Manila Skyway, Metro Manila Subway, and the Taguig Integrated Terminal Exchange. It also lies near various warehousing facilities in the nearby Food Terminal, Inc. (FTI), the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), and major CBDs like Makati City, Bonifacio Global City, and Ortigas Center. ARTHALAND will provide its tenants convenient shuttle services that will further provide a seamless, hassle-free commute experience to and from several key pick-up and drop-off points across the Greater Metro Manila area.
Through its leading-edge sustainable features, Savya Financial Center is soon to become a multi-certified green building. It has been pre-certified for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification and on-track for the Philippine Green Building Council’s BERDE Certification, International WELL Building Institute’s WELL Building Standard™, and the International Finance Corporation’s Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies (EDGE®) certification. Following the successful topping off, the North Tower is scheduled for completion on November 2021.
