DLI’s newest addition to Davao’s skyline is its most sustainable commercial tower yet,
aims to represent the region’s agricultural roots
DAVAO CITY, PHILIPPINES—Premier real estate developer Damosa Land Inc. (DLI) recently topped off the Damosa Diamond Tower. Strategically situated in the Damosa IT Park along J.P. Laurel Ave., the building is seen to bolster Davao City’s rapidly growing office space needs as more investments make their way to the South.
Only a 10-minute ride from Davao International Airport, and about 5 minutes away from key establishments, the office tower stands 17 stories high, has a land size of 2,200 square meters, and a building footprint of around 1,800 square meters.
“As Davao continues to experience a stream in investments, we see Damosa Diamond Tower as a welcome addition to its interesting skyline. As one of our biggest projects, this is truly a milestone for the company,” said Cary Floirendo-Lagdameo, Head of DLI.
“We owe it to the community to not only provide an area where they can thrive as they live, work and play, but to also create an iconic space that captures our region’s pride which is our agricultural resources and the ingenuity of Davaoenos.”
Expecting its completion in April, Damosa Diamond Tower’s unique architectural design such as the sleek curved lines and the distinctive panels, as well as its engineering works, are curated by some of the most trusted names in the country such as Arch. Cathy Saldaña of PDP Architects and Carwill Construction.
More than the interesting aesthetic, as the development boasts of a facade depicting the wavy lines of banana fibers—Davao’s top export, the Damosa Diamond Tower is also DLI’s way of committing to provide a more sustainable option to businesses.
The tower promotes the use of renewable energy and will give its locators access to alternative power sources. Custom-made exterior fins are installed to help divert heat, and the development poses environmentally sound features, which include the use of LED lighting, and eco-friendly insulation.
The addition of Damosa Diamond Tower in DLI’s portfolio expands its properties for lease in the complex, as it offers 20,000 square meters of leasable area to other premier companies. The building will also be housing around 50 locators upon completion, including the corporate offices of the Anflocor Group and DLI, expansive co-working spaces such as that of Regus, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) and Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) firms.
To complement the expected rise of economic activity in the area, DLI will also construct a car park building in the Damosa IT Park that will hold about 350 cars and is set to be fully operational later this year.
“Damosa Diamond Tower will allow us a firmer foothold in the region, as our portfolio continues to grow. We are steadfast in our commitment to become a significant figure in the property industry and to take on a bigger role in the community,” Lagdameo said.
As DLI continues to innovate and diversify its portfolio the company has also been drawing notable commendations in the industry. Most recently, DLI has garnered recognitions from the 2019 PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards as the office building bagged Best Office Architectural Design Award, Highly Commended Award for Best BPO Office Development, and the Highly Commended Best Office Development Award.
