Upscale developer Rockwell Land Corporation expects to continue its recovery this year with the launch of new projects in the Visayas as part of its strategy of growing its footprint in key locations across the country.
During the firm’s annual stockholders’ meeting, Rockwell Chairman Amb. Manuel M. Lopez said “We continue building on our progressive pace and look forward to more projects in the pipeline this year.”
“Our growth story endures as we move toward more bountiful times. This year, we will expand our reach in Makati, Cebu and Bacolod, and soon, set foot in Iloilo,” said Rockwell President Nestor J. Padilla.
Lopez added that, “Growing our footprint in Visayas will be the 2.8-hectare Rockwell IPI in Cebu, in partnership with International Pharmaceuticals, Inc. We also launched Rockwell Center Bacolod — a 30-hectare development that is set to be the next preferred mixed-used business district in Western Visayas.”
“Here we first introduce the Rockwell Business Park, which will create opportunities not only just for investments but jobs as well. Residential and retail spaces will then complete this new Rockwell Center,” Lopez said.
Padilla said Rockwell IPI Cebu will form a community with residential towers, workspaces, and a retail area while Rockwell Center Bacolod will be twice the size of our the first Rockwell Center in Makati.
“This master-planned community brings together the design vision of Proscenium’s architect, Carlos Ott, and the architect of multiple Rockwell projects, Jun Rodriguez,” he added.
The sprawling neighborhood will be comprised of residential areas, commercial spaces and a much-awaited Power Plant Mall.
“To start off the community, the Rockwell Business Park, launched this year, offers commercial lots for investors, poised to gain returns similar to the bustling Makati business district. Residential lots will also soon launch towards the end of 2022,” said Padilla.
Other projects slated for launch include Edades West, A new premium residential tower at the flagship Rockwell Center in Makati City.
He noted that, “Another distinct addition to our Rockwell Center Makati skyline will come to life this 2022. Situated alongside the premium towers in the West Block, the new rare residential tower will feature low-density floors with expansive balconies.”
Meanwhile, Padilla said “Our first venture in Iloilo will be marked by The Vantage at Iloilo. Residential and office spaces within the 1.3-hectare development will enjoy wide open views. Its ideal location in the center of the city makes it accessible to major establishments and institutions.”
