One of the industry leaders in green and sustainable developments is without a doubt Arthaland Corporation. They are possibly the only real estate developer in the Philippines with a portfolio that is 100% green. And every time they have a new project announcement, we are always and definitely excited.
To further strengthen Arthaland's RE portfolio and to rise in the upcoming business district of Arca South in Taguig is Savya Financial Center. It is a mid-rise two-tower office development that will be added in its impressive roster of green developments.
Arca South is pegged to be another BGC (Bonifacio Global City) according to its master planner and developer AyalaLand-- with residential condominiums, a community mall, and of course, office buildings. It is strategically located in between premium business districts of Makati, BGC and Alabang.
Currently, access to Arca South is still at its birth as development has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic but the plans are very promising and they will no doubt skyrocket the value of real estate here-- first is a subway stop dedicated to Arca South under the Metro Manila Subway project that is set to be completed by 2024; second is the South Integrated Transport Terminal which is a terminal hub that will serve as a gateway to inner cities of Metro Manila; and third is the dedicated ramp exit from SLEX and Skyway. While waiting for these projects to be completed, it is still fairly accessible as you can use the East Service Rd via SLEX and Lawton Cloverleaf and via Bayani Rd. from C5.
Both prime business districts of Makati and BGC are approximately 10-20 minutes away via car. Alabang on its south is also approximately 20-30 minutes away. The NAIA Airport is very close with an approximate 10 minutes travel time via car.
Public transportation is available at the FTI terminal where there are jeepneys and buses that can take you directly to BGC, Makati, Pasay, Alabang, and Paranaque. Also, it is very easy to hail a cab or book a grab car from the building with a maximum wait time of 10 minutes.
Savya Financial Center is in close proximity to SM Hyper Market and Sunshine Mall plaza-- both have different health and beauty shops, a supermarket, food stalls, appliance stores, banks, and restaurants. The upcoming Ayala Mall (to be completed 2023) which will be 2 blocks away from Savya will expect a hundred more stores in addition. Important to take note of as well is right at the exit of Arca South via East Service Rd., there is a police station that can respond in less than 10 minutes to Savya and the BFP Taguig Fire Station, which is within Arca South, and is less than a kilometer away from Savya, will take a maximum of 5 minutes to respond when needed.
Savya Financial Center was designed under Rchitects, Inc. They designed the two-tower with a goal to optimize the opportunity of having efficient floor plates. They also incorporated a 10m canyon in between the towers enhancing its shape and giving it a more intricate design.
Both towers have a full glass facade that is known to benefit occupiers with 100% sunshine coming from the outside. Of course, being in a green building, we can only expect that these are double glazed and are designed to filter the heat coming from the sun and as well as canceling noise pollution from the outside.
