ALLHC’s Pampanga Technopark: A gateway to growth

IFM_ALLHC

AyalaLand Logistics Holdings Corporation (ALLHC) is a subsidiary of Ayala Land, which is recognised as the leading industrial real estate company in the Philippines.

ALLHC Technoparks began its journey in 1990 with the establishment of Laguna Technopark. As of January 2024, Laguna Technopark has become one of the largest privately-owned industrial parks in the country, generating significant employment opportunities and revenue.

ALLHC Technoparks operates in several provinces, including Cavite, Pampanga, and Misamis Oriental, and plans to expand its reach to more regions in the countryside to further contribute to the growth of the communities where it operates in the Philippines.

Entering ALLHC’s World

The venture has a widespread presence throughout the Philippines, with its industrial parks, warehouses, cold storage facilities, and commercial leasing properties. It has developed world-class industrial estates such as Laguna Technopark, Pampanga Technopark, Cavite Technopark, Batangas Technopark, and Laguindingan Technopark in Misamis Oriental.

ALLHC’s ALogis standard factory buildings can be found in various cities of the Philippines, including Biñan and Calamba in Laguna, as well as municipalities like Naic, Cavite and Porac, Pampanga. They are complemented by the ALogis Artico cold storage facilities located in Biñan, Laguna, and Mandaue, Cebu.

ALLHC’s commercial leasing portfolio comprises Tutuban Centre in Manila and South Park Centre in Muntinlupa City.

The venture is strengthening its foothold in Central Luzon with Pampanga Technopark, envisioned to be the region’s new growth centre. The 270-hectare development is the first master-planned industrial township in the area and will be home to manufacturing and logistics locators, an agricultural wholesale market, and commercial retail spaces for the township’s social and recreational activities.

Let’s Talk About Pampanga Technopark

Pampanga Technopark is a mixed-use development that consists of three phases. As of January 2024, phases 1, 2, and 3 are all registered with the Board of Investments (BOI) as Domestic Industrial Zones.

Pampanga Technopark aims to provide a complete lifestyle experience to the communities living and working in the area. It will feature shopping, dining, and recreational spaces, offering a range of activities for everyone.

One of the key features of Pampanga Technopark is the retail area, which will have over 30 retail spaces spanning 2,000 sqm of gross leasable area. Many of the retail spaces will feature homegrown Kapampangan restaurants, as well as other retail and service merchants.

A variety of lots are now available for commercial use at Pampanga Technopark. These lots can be used for shops, medical centres, offices, co-working spaces, business hotels, and more. Additionally, there will be a gas station and a variety of quick service restaurants on-site to serve motorists.

Furthermore, Pampanga Technopark will also be home to a new agricultural wholesale market (known as ‘bagsakan’). This market will support the agriculture supply chain in Luzon. The market will be complemented by ALLHC’s ALogis and ALogis Artico facilities, which are set to be completed in the first half of 2024.

The ALogis ready-built facilities will provide 8,000 sqm of warehouse space, while ALogis Artico cold storage will have 5,000 pallet positions with temperatures ranging from 10°C to -20°C. The bagsakan will cover 3,000 sqm of space, providing a valuable resource for the local community.

Why The Project Is Special?

Located in Mabalacat City, which is one of the largest transportation hubs in Central Luzon, Pampanga Technopark will be easily accessible through various major road networks, including the North Luzon Expressway, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, and MacArthur Highway. Furthermore, the North-South Commuter Railway project will soon connect the existing Tutuban (Manila) Station to Clark, contributing to the city’s economic progress.

Pampanga Technopark will also act as a gateway to international markets. The facility is strategically located near major infrastructures and is approximately 30 minutes away from Clark International Airport and an hour away from Subic Bay International Terminal. The upcoming New Manila International Airport will also be approximately an hour away from the development.

The soon-to-rise Pampanga Technopark promises to connect commerce and communities, staying true to ALLHC’s reputation of creating business-friendly and sustainable environments.

Pampanga Technopark is prioritising pedestrian mobility and transit connectivity by providing sidewalks and an easily accessible public transport terminal that serves both in-city and regional transit routes. The Technopark will also feature native trees for landscaping, which will improve the property’s resilience to environmental stress.

In addition to this, there will be five detention ponds that will serve as spaces for rainwater absorption. Finally, the Technopark will also have green and open spaces, including a dedicated 1.5-hectare park area.

The Road Ahead

By 2025, ALLHC aims to establish a nationwide presence by developing a network of industrial and logistics centres along the major road infrastructure and the nautical highway.

“Pampanga Technopark is the next up-and-coming project that will realise this aspiration. Aligned with the administration’s push for industrialisation and job creation, it is foreseen to boost productivity in the region and generate more opportunities for local workers and citizens,” the venture told International Finance.

“We will introduce a modern food terminal and this will be supported by our cold storage and dry warehouse facilities. Farmers from Northern Luzon and Central Luzon can bring their produce here, and we can preserve and store them with the proper facilities,” shared ALLHC Chief Operating Officer Mr. Patrick C. Avila, while concluding, “What is happening here in Pampanga Technopark is a new township. Through Pampanga Technopark, we are committed to working together to create employment opportunities for all Filipinos.”
