Damosa Land Inc. (DLI) adds an­other tower within Damosa IT Park to en­cour­age more busi­ness lo­ca­tors to in­vest and ex­pand busi­ness op­er­a­tions in Davao City.

DLI vice pres­i­dent Ri­cardo F. Lag­dameo said in an in­ter­view dur­ing the ground­break­ing cer­e­mony Fri­day that the Di­a­mond Tower, the new­est build­ing fa­cil­ity in Damosa IT Park - a Philip­pine Eco­nomic Zone Au­thor­ity-ac­cred­ited fa­cil­ity- will help in gen­er­at­ing more em­ploy­ment for Dabawenyos.

The 15-storey Di­a­mond Tower with a land size of 2,200 square me­ters (sqm) and a build­ing floor plate of around 1,800 sqm is set to pro­vide cor­po­rate spa­ces for dif­fer­ent com­mer­cial in­dus­tries.

Lag­dameo said the com­pany is eyeing on a 50/50 split of in­dus­tries who will be oc­cu­py­ing Di­a­mond Tower.

“What we are tar­get­ing is sim­i­lar to the pro­file of Damosa IT Park where we don’t have a 100 per­cent BPO com­pany oc­cu­py­ing the park. I would say that 50 per­cent are BPO in­dus­tries and an­other 50 for cor­po­rate of­fices such as ac­count­ing of­fices, shared-ser­vices of­fices, ship­ping lines, and agri­cul­tural com­pa­nies,” he said.

“It’s a good criss-cross of dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries,” Lag­dameo added.

As for the num­ber of of­fice ten­ants who will be oc­cu­py­ing the tower, Lag­dameo has not con­firmed the de­tails yet, though some com­pa­nies have al­ready in­quired about the of­fice space.

In pre­vi­ous re­ports, Lag­dameo said DLI is ex­pect­ing some of their busi­ness lo­ca­tors to oc­cupy Di­a­mond Tower for ex­pan­sion.

Presently, the cur­rent lo­ca­tors at the Damosa IT Park are global of­fice space provider Re­gus, busi­ness process out­sourc­ing (BPO) firm Con­cen­trix, and var­i­ous in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies.

Mean­while, each floor at the Di­a­mond Tower is es­ti­mated at 1,600 sqm. The build­ing fa­cil­ity will also have so­phis­ti­cated tech­nolo­gies like so­lar pan­els, and five high-speed el­e­va­tors to op­er­ate in the build­ing. Di­a­mond Tower will also have a roofdeck amenity which in­cludes a restau­rant, and green space area to match the sea view of the Davao Gulf.
