LUXURY CONDO builder Anchor Land Holdings, Inc. said it has commissioned two contractors to build Anchor Land Corporate Center, its first office tower in the Manila Bay area.
DDT Kontract, Inc. was tapped as general contractor, while Design Coordinates, Inc. was charged with planning and designing the office tower in Bay City, a bustling commercial, residential and casino complex sitting on land reclaimed from Manila Bay.
The partnership contracts were signed a statement dated Aug. 31 read.
Anchor Land is not new to that side of Metro Manila, being the builder of European-inspired luxury boutique hotel Admiral Baysuites that is overlooking the bay famous for its sunset.
It also has built Solemare Parksuites, its first project in Entertainment City.
But it will be the first time that Anchor Land will venture into office development in Bay City.
The developer last year said it expects to complete Anchor Land Corporate Center by 2019. It’s a 12-storey office building that will offer as much as 65,000 square meters of leasable space.
The office tower is green, with a certification from rating system Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), according to the statement.
The general contractor, DDT Kontract, counts Singapore Airlines’ hangar in Clark Field, Glorietta 5, BDO Ortigas Tower and Globe Telecom headquarters, among its portfolio.
