AyalaLand Logistics Holdings Corp. (ALLHC) acquired 55 hectares of land in Padre Garcia, Batangas, which is set for the development of the future Batangas Technopark. Similar to ALLHC’s four other Technoparks currently operating in Laguna, Cavite, Laguindingan, and Pampanga, the soon-to-rise Batangas Technopark is intended for light and medium, non-polluting industries from both local and global markets. Furthermore, the park is positioned to house ALogis ready-built facilities and ALogis Artico cold storage facilities in the coming future. Batangas Technopark will be the 5th industrial estate owned and operated by ALLHC, and will address the growing demand for industrial real estate in the CALABARZON region, the country’s primary industrial corridor.
“We are looking forward to further energizing the municipality of Padre Garcia by bringing more employment opportunities for the communities in the province of Batangas and nearby localities,” shared ALLHC Chief Operating Officer Mr. Patrick C. Avila. “The acquisition is a strategic move that furthers ALLHC’s goal of building national footprint by increasing its presence in key areas nationwide.”
The property rests within a prime location for the development of a new industrial estate by ALLHC. Its main access is through the Tiaong-Lipa Road, and is accessible coming from Manila via the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), continuing on to the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR), and then the local roads. Adding to the industrial park’s accessibility and connectivity are the 66.74-kilomoter SLEX Toll Road-4 (SLEX TR-4) and the 11.37-kilometer Lipa-Padre Garcia bypass road, which are both currently under construction. The future Technopark is also an hour’s drive from the Port of Batangas, an international seaport serving as the alternate port to the Port of Manila.
This will be the second property of ALLHC in the province of Batangas, following the acquisition of an existing 64,000-sqm ready-built facility in Sto. Tomas last February 2022.
