The multi-billion Araneta Center Cyberpark in Quezon City is poised to becoming the next big business district in the National Capital Region (NCR), with a lot of offices and real estate properties set to rise in it.
“The Araneta Center is key to the BPO [Business Process Outsourcing] expansion in Quezon City. Aside from its enviable location in the heart of Metro Manila, the Center is a multi-modal transport hub that offers a thriving community espousing a live, work and play mantra,” a statement showed.
Today, of the more than 40,000 workforce in the Center, 10,000 are BPO agents – some of whom hold office in the 31-storey high-tech office building Gateway Tower like Accenture, AIG, TeleTech, and Regus.
Another company is also set to take advantage of this trend. A statement showed that Alorica, Inc., a global leader in customer experience solutions, is set to move into its new headquarters in Cyberpark 2, the second high-tech tower to be opened in Araneta Center Cyberpark.
With 33 levels of office space, and two floors of retail shops and three levels of parking, the towers answer the needs of companies like this for top-of-the-line facilities, large office floor plates, and relaxing leisure and lifestyle offering that boost performance and productivity.
Cyberpark 1 tower also has the same facilities and has been home to the biggest names in BPO space such as Sterling, Stellar, Genesys, and 24/7 In Touch, while Cyberpark 3 is expected to be completed in 2020.
Aside from having the iconic Smart Araneta Coliseum and New Frontier Theater that hold about 300 shows a year combined, Araneta Center Cyberpark also has approximately 2,000 shopping and dining options in three existing malls, with the much-awaited Gateway Mall 2 that will be completed by 2019.
In addition, Novotel Manila Araneta Center and the soon-to-rise Ibis Styles Hotel offer nearly a thousand hotel rooms, and M.I.C.E.-ready venues from ballrooms, function rooms, and outdoor venues.
