Araneta City resumed its P20-billion Cyberpark development with the ceremonial first concrete pouring at Cyberpark 3, which is expected to be completed by first quarter, 2025.
This is the third office building to rise in Araneta City’s 8-hectare Cyberpark Office district, a 30-storey tower with state-of-the-art facilities, including a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
The property will have 27 levels of office spaces, three basement parking levels, and two floors of retail space in its podium. It will have large floor plates (typically 2,500 square meters), floor-to-ceiling windows, and top-of-the-line facilities which include, among others, a Smart Elevator System.
Cyberpark 3 is the latest addition to Araneta City’s master-planned community that already includes residential, office, hospitality, and retail developments.
The office tower will house retail spaces in its podium and will be accessible to other key landmarks in the City of Firsts – entertainment venues like the Smart Araneta Coliseum, retail centers like Farmers Plaza, Ali Mall and the soon-to-open Gateway Mall 2, hotels like Novotel Manila and the upcoming ibis Styles Hotel, and the Manhattan Gardens residential towers.
It straddles the crossroads of EDSA, Aurora Blvd, and P. Tuazon St., giving easy access from anywhere in Metro Manila. Cyberpark 3, as with the whole Araneta City, has access to multimodal transport like the MRT, LRT, buses, commuter vans, and jeepneys.
“Cyberpark 3 is our latest solution to the need of companies and locators looking for options. Once completed, it will serve as a suitable, even superior, alternative to office spaces in the usual CBDs,” says Rowell Recinto, Senior Management Consultant of the Araneta Group.
Like its two predecessors, Cyberpark 1 and 2, this new office building highlights green initiatives and renewable energy solutions and will carry a LEED certification. It will feature energy-efficient double-glazed windows and a rainwater collection system, among others.
“We will continue to introduce environmentally impactful design features and specifications in our Cyberpark construction. This serves as Araneta Group’s commitment towards environmentally responsible developments,” Recinto noted.
A PEZA-registered IT Zone, the Cyberpark Complex is projected to have five towers with a combined floor area of over 500,000 square meters.
Two towers have been completed – Cyberpark 1 which opened in 2016, and Cyberpark 2 which opened in 2018.
