Outsourcing firms occupy most office
spaces in Bacolod, real estate exec says
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
Colliers International, a global real estate company, said developers should build office towers within the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA)-proclaimed properties as outsourcing firms have occupied most of the office spaces in Bacolod City.
Joey Bondoc, Colliers International senior research manager, said developers should also develop larger floor plates for consolidation of tenants, offer more plug-and-play offices, and tweak the tenancy mixes of their retail podiums to attract or retain occupants.
He also encouraged tenants to partner with government-run training centers to upgrade employees’ skills and keep an eye on new office towers due to be completed in the city this year until 2021.
