Century Properties Group, Inc. is acquiring a 50 percent stake in the company that owns the low-rise tower of Pacific Star Building (PSB Low Rise) located at the corner of Sen. Gil J. Puyat and Makati Avenue in Makati City.
In a statement, CPGI said it has already signed a memorandum of agreement for the acquisition wherein the buyer assumes the existing loan of PSB Low Rise.
Century said the acquisition is in line with its plans to diversify its revenue stream. PSB Low Rise, which is over 5,900 square meters of office space, is expected to contribute to the company’s recurring revenues as the building is fully leased out.
From its listing in 2012, Century Properties is evolving from being a primarily residential developer to becoming a well-diversified real еstatе company.
PSB Low Rise will be an addition to the company’s planned commercial portfolio of 160,000 square meters that will be completed by 2019.
This includes Century City Mall, a five-level 50,000 square meter which was completed earlier this year. It is the first mall to open in Makati City in almost a decade.
By the end of the year, Century Properties will turnover Centuria Medical Makati, a 28-storey out-patient medical facility also within Century City, which has both for sale and for lease medical IT units.
The company also projects to complete three Class A commercial buildings in prime locations with close to 90,000 square meters, thereby enabling Century Properties to be a significant participant in the growth of the office space sector in the Philippines by 2019.
