Iloilo City embraces the vision of a fast rising metropolis that beautifully preserves its glorious past amidst highly elevating progress and developments.

One of its significant phases of progress and claim to fame is Iloilo Business Park — a 72-hectare business township in the old Iloilo airport of Mandurriao district — developed by Megaworld Corporation, the country’s leading real estate developer and township pioneer.

Let’s take a look at the recent developments in this exciting business and lifestyle destination…

We start our tour at the Iloilo Business Park Sales and Information Center, where you can see the impressive and luxurious model units. This is touted as the biggest and grandest lifestyle showroom in the region where visitors can have a glimpse of the classy lifestyle.

Welcoming visitors in the township is the biggest Mcdonald’s branch in the region. Next is the Festive Walk Mall, the township’s lifestyle shopping destination. Soon to house the biggest brands, restaurants, events center, food hall, and eight world-class cinemas. It is scheduled to open in the last quarter of 2016.

Right now, let’s take a glimpse of Richmonde Hotel Iloilo. Its interior design is conceptualized by Getty’s — the world’s popular designer of international hotels. It has 149 rooms and 12 floors with luxurious amenities including a grand swimming pool.

We are looking at the iconic Iloilo Convention Center. It can accommodate 3,700 guests. Complete with modern venue facilities and an exterior architectural design inspired by Iloilo City’s two major festivals — the Dinagyang and Paraw Regatta.

Straight ahead is the Courtyard by Marriott — the first brand of Marriott in the Philippines. It boasts 314 luxurious rooms, stunning amenities, and classy bistro. This business hotel is expected to elevate the world-class hotel accommodation in the region and is set to open this year.

Take a look at Iloilo Business Park’s Boutique Hotels and Commercial District. A 9.2-hectare prime property composed of 60 commercial lots in 10 blocks. The district is envisioned to become the next central business district of Visayas. More than 70% of the commercial lots are already sold to bank institutions, local entrepreneurs, and companies.

As we take a turn, we can now see the Two Techno Place and One Techno Place. Both are 4-storey BPO office towers complete with modern facilities ready to open this year.

Straight ahead is Two Global Center — the operation site of US-based BPO company, StarTek — providing quality jobs to local call center workforce.

Next is One Global Center. The first BPO office tower that opened in the township. This is now the operation site of two BPO companies, TransCom and WNS. They are currently employing hundreds of call center workers and professionals.

Right now, you are looking at the Street of Festive Walk. Considered as the longest retail, shopping, and dining strip in the country where topnotch restaurants, bistros, bars, and boutiques will soon rise to provide ultimate pleasure in the township.

This is the Mall Annex — standing right across the Street of Festive Walk. The Mall Annex is an extension of the Festive Walk Mall, another exciting destination in the township.

To elevate the lifestyle perspective of Ilonggos, Iloilo Business Park showcases its first class residential towers…

Let’s check the site of One Madison Place — a 3-tower cluster condominium with 10 floors each — boasting with high-end amenities. One Madison Place is fit for those who are outgoing, dynamic, artistic, and enthusiastic in life.

Next is Lafayette Park Square — the 16-storey European-inspired condominium tower — stunning for its standout units and amenities. The tower evokes passion for life and romance in classical perspective.

Finally, the first of its kind in the region. The Palladium is the tallest residential tower with 22 floors showcasing the Skygarden Lifestyle. The tower is stunning for its infinity pool and loft units in its topmost floor.

Iloilo Business Park swiftly embraces the vision of being the centerpoint of everything beautiful about Iloilo City. This is where the best of lifestyle, leisure, and business take shape to create a promising future.
