I would like to present to you, a unique investment opportunity for your clients, the Stiles Enterprise Plaza… The location for this emergent entertainment district of metro manila is strategic, placed at the middle of three major business centers, Makati, Manila and Mandaluyong.
We are selling the first tower at an pre-selling price of 147,000 pesos per square meter (vat inclusive), and the project has ROI’s ranging from 7.3% to 9.0% given the current lease rates in Makati. As of the 3rd quarter of 2014, the vacancy rate of Makati was 1.9% (a majority of which was caused by the Alphaland Makati Tower’s unleased and sold 48,000 square meters). Given the current trajectory and basic laws of supply and demand the potential for capital appreciation (as well as rental income) for Stiles Enterprise Plaza has an undocumented allure. We have never created an entertainment district/mini CBD within such close proximity to the main streets of Ayala Ave.
One thing is certain, Ayala Land’s ability to create something from nothing has a well-documented history. From 88 pesos per square meter in Forbes Park, to the hundreds of thousands that it is today we have managed to replicate formula this time and time again. Each and every community that we build we get better. Circuit Makati is the beginning of a fresh investment opportunity for your clients and a chance to establish your reputations as savvy investment specialists who have their clients best interests in mind at all times.
There is a lot of interesting data on increases in employee productivity when they locate from normal buildings to green or LEED certified buildings. This should be very useful for you to show your clients who are looking to relocate their main headquarters to Circuit Makati.
Here is a quick review/essential quotes from these sources as well as sources around the internet:
A 2009 Michigan State study, Life Cycle Cost Analysis of Occupant Well-being and Productivity in LEED Offices, found that groups moving to LEED office buildings missed less work and put in almost 39 hours more per person annually. According to the study, the total bottom-line benefits from gains related to fewer allergic reactions and reduced stress. The productivity boost ranged from $69,601 to more than $250,000 per year, the study showed.
Among the benefits of LEED cited in studies like the Michigan State report are direct gains in overall health for office workers. These improvements come from better indoor air quality (IAQ), increased day lighting, and other changes seen to enhance morale or reduce stress. The bottom line: Happier, healthier, more relaxed employees tend to produce better work.
Effects of Green Buildings On Employee Health and Productivity

Finally, the improvements in perceived productivity were fairly substantial and could result in an additional 38.98 work hours per year for each occupant of a green building.
*Based on the minimum wage of 450 pesos per hour, the additional 38.98 hours is equivalent to 17,541 pesos of extra work done per employee in the building.
Green Buildings and Productivity

While we now have some evidence on rental premiums and occupancy differences for green
buildings, defined as including both Energy Star labelled and/or LEED certified at any level, from
several studies we know little about the real impact on productivity for tenants.1 There has been
one widely cited early study by Greg Kats (2003) which had a sample of 33 green building
projects that suggested present value benefits of $37 to $55 U.S. dollars per square foot as a
result of productivity gains from less sick time and greater worker productivity. These resulted
primarily from better ventilation, lighting and general environment.
“Productivity is an important success factor for all organizations. Improvements in productivity
have been recognized to have a major impact on many economic and social phenomena, e.g.
economic growth and higher standard of living. Companies must continuously improve
productivity in order to stay profitable
GREENING THE BUILDING AND THE BOTTOM LINE
By: JOSEPH J. ROMM (U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY) and WILLIAM D. BROWNING (ROCKY MOUNTAIN INSTITUTE)
Energy-efficient building and office design offers the possibility of significantly increased worker productivity.
By improving lighting, heating, and cooling, workers can be made more comfortable and productive. An increase of 1% in productivity can provide savings to a company that exceed its entire energy bill. Efficient design practices are cost-effective just from their energy savings; the resulting productivity gains make them indispensable.
The conclusion of the RPI study: “The combined effect of the new building and ERWs produced a statistically significant median increase in productivity of approximately 16 percent over productivity in the old building.”
