AyalaLand Logistics Holdings Corp. (ALLHC) furthers development in the CALABARZON region with the launch of Batangas Technopark, its fifth industrial estate. This is ALLHC’s second property within the province following the acquisition of an existing 64,000-sqm ready-built facility in Santo Tomas in 2022.
ALLHC’s newest prime location, Batangas Technopark sits in Padre Garcia and spans 55 hectares in gross land area. Registered with the Bureau of Investments (BOI), the soon-to-rise Technopark is intended for light and medium, non-polluting industries from both local and global markets. Eventually, the estate will evolve as a mixed-use development with the addition of ALogis dry warehouse and ALogis Artico cold storage facilities, as well as public amenities including a community chapel, quick service restaurants, a transport terminal, a gas station, and a bagsakan or agricultural wholesale market.
With a sustainable development in mind, Batangas Technopark aims to preserve its natural flora with an allocation of 1.3 hectares for park space, and the use of native trees and detention ponds to aid the property’s resilience to environmental stress and geohazards. It will also ensure mobility with pedestrian-friendly spaces with wide sidewalks throughout the estate and transit connectivity with access to a public terminal.
The target completion of Batangas Technopark is on the second quarter of 2025. Investors and prospective tenants can access the estate through Tiaong-Lipa Road. Coming from Metro Manila, it conveniently connects via the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR Tollway). It is also an hour’s drive from the Batangas Port, an international seaport serving as the alternate port to the Port of Manila.
Soon, the property will be more accessible after the completion of the Lipa-Padre Garcia Bypass Road, which starts in Barangay Talisay of Lipa and will end in Barangay Bawi of Padre Garcia, just approximately 1.5km from the new Technopark.
“This new industrial estate will not only serve as a hub for manufacturing and industrial activities but will also generate new employment opportunities for Batangueños and residents of nearby localities, thus contributing to the local economy. Batangas Technopark is poised to attract local and foreign investors, and we are confident that it will be a key driver of economic growth in the region,” shared ALLHC President and CEO Mr. Jose Emmanuel H. Jalandoni.
“We see that our future is truly bright. I am pleased that we have become a destination, and I know this will be successful and will give support not only to the people of Batangas, not only to the people of Luzon, but to the whole Philippines,” noted Gov. Hermilando I. Mandanas
Representing Cong. Lianda B. Bolilia, Mr. Caloy Bolilia commented, “We would like to thank AyalaLand Logistics Holdings for the trust and confidence of investing in our dearest municipality. We are happy not only because of the large investment in our municipality, but also because of the trust that our municipality can deliver the expectations of the national government and of the citizens.” Hon. Michael Angelo C. Rivera echoed the sentiment and added, “The municipality of Padre Garcia, moving forward, will be the tiger municipality of the province of Batangas.”
DTI Secretary Hon. Alfredo E. Pascual stated, “The Philippines is now open for business, and we welcome locators here that will find this Technopark to be a viable and very supportive place for their businesses. We continue to create an enabling environment for domestic and foreign investments. Together, let us make innovative, competitive, and sustainable investments happen in the Philippines, but first of all, happen here in Batangas Technopark.”
Building dynamic industrial communities with ALLHC Technoparks
This 2023 marks the continuation of ALLHC’s mission of transforming places into dynamic centers across the country, developing world-class industrial parks that are hubs of convergence and business activity. As a leading developer of vibrant industrial communities in the Philippines, ALLHC builds each Technopark with four key pillars in mind.
First is the presence of its industrial estates in key areas across the country, thus building a national footprint. Second is the development of the Technoparks as Economic Zones, complemented by onsite amenities, high-quality infrastructure, and round-the-clock security. Third is integrated support brought by a professional property management team and a robust supply chain within the vicinity. Fourth is the Ayala brand of service, which guarantees strong management support and exceptional customer service always.
Over the years, ALLHC has launched industrial parks including Laguna Technopark in 1990, Cavite Technopark in 2015, and Laguindingan Technopark in 2019. This Q2 2023 signals the ongoing expansion of ALLHC’s industrial developments in Batangas and Pampanga. While ALLHC breaks ground for Batangas Technopark, the group is also preparing for the launch of Pampanga Technopark in Mabalacat – an estate envisioned as an agro-industrial hub with a current gross land area of 270 hectares. Similar to Batangas Technopark, it will eventually rise as a mixed-use development to host ALogis and ALogis Artico facilities, as well as amenities like a bagsakan (agricultural wholesale market), a public transport terminal, and more.
