MANILA, Philippines – Century Properties Group, Inc. (CPG) and Asian Carmakers Corp. (ACC), the exclusive distributor and importer of BMW products in the Philippines, held last Monday the first concrete pouring of their joint development, the Asian Century Center office building, in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig. CPG chairman and CEO Jose E.B. Antonio and ACC president Maricar Cristobal-Parco (3rd and 4th from left, respectively) led the ceremonial pouring, joined by (from left) CPG director and treasurer Rafael G. Yaptinchay, ACC executive director for sales and marketing Glen Dasig, CPG chief operating officer Marco R. Antonio, CPG director and Century Properties Management and Construction Corp. (CPMCC) president Ricardo P. Cuerva, and CPMCC vice president of operations Engr. Luis Miguel Gonzales.
Early this year, CPG said it has allocated over P1 billion for the construction of the said Grade A office building project. Rising at 27th St. on 3rd and 4th Avenues of Fort Bonifacio, Asian Century Center will house the largest BMW showroom in the Philippines. The building will have 23 floors.
The modern office building is designed with energy efficient features and will cater to a 24-hour working schedule as it targets corporate and business process outsourcing firms as future locators. It will also have sky gardens, a Sky Bar, a café, conference facilities, and recreational amenities.
Asian Century Center is CPG’s third project in the city of Taguig, and is in line with the company’s diversification strategy as it ventures into the commercial leasing business. Its two previous developments in Fort Bonifacio are the hugely successful Essensa East Forbes luxury condominium towers and the South of Market residential building.
