Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) – In the olden days, being environmentally conscious in your business usually meant big expense with hardly any returns.

In other words, going “green” was more of a principled choice than a sensible business decision.

But with the world’s growing concern on energy conservation, businesses today have started to embrace more eco-friendly practices as they realize the benefits these can bring to their operation.

By locating your office in green buildings, tenants and investors alike can enjoy long-term economic and social benefits, such as reduced operating costs from energy savings, increased employee health and productivity and higher asset values—all of which translate to a better return on investment.

With this in mind, Filinvest Alabang, Inc. (FAI) said it is targeting this thriving market segment with its newest office development: the 32-storey Parkway Corporate Center in Filinvest City, Alabang.


This is the first office condominium under the WorkSpaces by Filinvest banner that offers investors pre-selling units for sale in a dynamic environment.

Designed by leading architectural firm H1 Architecture and Design, Parkway Corporate Center comes with office units averaging 36 square meters.

Allowing for flexibility and combinability depending on the need, FAI said Parkway Corporate Center is perfect for boutique companies and SMEs. Other future-ready facilities include six high-speed elevators, 24-hour security with CCTV cameras, 100 percent back-up power and an advanced fiber-optic backbone.

As with all Filinvest projects, extensive studies and research were put into envisioning Parkway Corporate Center. A significant take-away is how creating healthier and greener offices can ease the impact on the company’s bottom line.

For instance, a well-ventilated office that has plenty of windows for greater exposure to daylight and natural views has been proven to improve employee productivity, based on a study by Harvard University.

Accordingly, Parkway Corporate Center is fitted with expansive, double-glazed, glass-curtain walls with a low-e coating that lowers heat and UV radiation.

It also has breakout spaces—like the podium deck on the 7 floor, a pocket garden on the ground floor and balconies on every five floors—allowing tenants and employees to enjoy Filinvest City’s verdant surroundings.

FAI said all these and more are in keeping with its vision to achieve a LEED certification, the most recognized green building rating system across the globe.

Indeed, it’s only fitting that Parkway Corporate Center is located in Filinvest City, a thriving, fully-integrated and self-contained 244-hectare metropolis that harmonizes modern conveniences with nature.

FAI said Filinvest City is a genuine work-live-play environment that is fast reinforcing its stature as the ultimate green city—sustainable, pedestrian friendly and eco-centric.

With all these advantages, companies looking to move into a green office development should look no further than Parkway Corporate Center—the smart, eco-oriented corporate tower of the south.
