PEZA-accredited buildings with large floor plates in strategic locations like Ortigas Technopoint Two along Julia Vargas are already experiencing high levels of inquiry for its few available spaces. Barranda explained that the building’s exceptional floor plates that are typically 4,000 sqm. mean greater floor efficiencies. This allows a 1:5 density ratio or one person for every five square meters of space and has been key in attracting established IT-BPMs to locate there.


In pre-Covid times up to now, IT-BPMs are driven to keep their costs low in order to remain competitive, according to Miguel Manipol, LPC director for Commercial Leasing. At the same time, they seek to provide a conducive and convenient work environment for the many workers they employ.


Workplaces like Ortigas Technopoint Two, which is highly accessible via public transportation from the residential communities of Quezon City, Pasig City and Mandaluyong City, are thus preferred locations, Manipol says.

Additionally, it offers branding rights and ground floor space for recruitment purposes to tenants who will take up spaces in the second and third floors.
