Full-range property developer Filinvest Land, Inc. (FLI) is seeking to bolster its industrial presence and firm up its foothold in the booming Southern Tagalog region with the construction and development of its new 25-hectare Filinvest Innovation Park in Calamba City, Laguna.
At a ceremony last August 19, FLI broke ground on Filinvest Innovation Park-Ciudad de Calamba (FIP-CDC) in Calamba City’s Barangay Bubuyan. Present were officials from the Calamba City government, Barangays Punta and Bubuyan, and the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).
FIP-CDC is an expansion of FLI’s 50-hectare Filinvest Technology Park, a PEZA ecozone established in 2002 in Ciudad de Calamba, a 350-hectare Modern Filipino Hispanic Filinvest townscape. FIP CDC joins FIP New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac as FLI’s concrete commitment to catalyzing the country’s economic growth through its strategically located innovation parks.
"FIP-CDC marks a significant step forward for FLI as we expand our industrial presence in the Southern Tagalog region. With its cutting-edge green and digital features, FIP-CDC will offer a prime environment for logistics, e-commerce, and light manufacturing locators. We are proud to provide a platform that not only supports businesses but also contributes to the growth of the local economy,” said Tristan Las Marias, FLI President and Chief Executive Officer.
Upon its completion, FIP-CDC will lease out ready-built factory (RBF) and built-to-suit units catering to prospective locators’ varying requirements.
FIP CDC’s RBFs are envisioned to meet Grade A warehouse specifications such as higher ceiling clearance and floor load capacity, elevated production floors with loading docks, and superior utilities infrastructure support, including access to high-speed Internet and fire detection & suppression. FIP-CDC RBFs will also have provisions for rooftop solar panels and rainwater harvesting.
Further, the entire FIP-CDC is a PEZA-registered ecozone, allowing locators to enjoy tax perks, simplified trade procedures, and special visa privileges for foreign employees.
