Ayala Land to spend Php18B for Misamis mixed-use project

DAVAO CITY — Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) will be rolling out some P18 billion for a 526-hectare mixed-use project in the Habini Bay estate in the towns of Alubijid and Laguindingan in Misamis Oriental, according to a report from BusinessWorld.
Enrique B. Manuel, Jr., ALI assistant vice-president and estate head, reportedly said that of this amount, about P4 billion will be spent for the first phase of the mixed-use complex, including construction of an industrial park to be managed by Laguna Technopark, Inc. (LTI), another Ayala company.

“Expected to be completed in 2022, the fund for the first phase would be spent on land development, the launch of the LTI (-managed park) as well as some concessions for the partner locators,” BusinessWorld quoted Manuel as saying in an e-mail interview.

The industrial park component is intended to attract manufacturers of electronics, automotive, pharmaceuticals and consumer products, said the report.

“The total budget for the project will exclude the capital expenditures of locators,” Manuel said.

The company sees the project generating about 2,000 jobs in the initial phase, mostly in construction, and about 4,000 jobs upon full operations, according to the BusinessWorld report.

“We are hopeful that we will bring in inclusive growth by providing jobs and opportunities for the Mindanaoans in the area, and that we will do starting very soon,” said Manuel.

The project, a joint venture of ALI and its mother company Ayala Corp., is expected to become a trade and commerce center in the Northern Mindanao Region, the company said in a statement last month.

The estate will also have residential and commercial components, and will be home to the new local government center of Laguindingan town.

It will also have a bus terminal, a sea port and a school, said the report.

The company said Habini Bay is also designed with “pedestrian and bike-friendly roads to encourage a healthy modern lifestyle in an integrated and sustainable estate.”

It has helped thousands of OFWs own their very own home. Be part of PPIE 2019 on April 26-27 at the JW Marriott, Deira, Dubai to reach your aspired home.
