Savya Financial Center (by Arthaland)

Dear valued clients,

We would like to offer to you Arthaland’s newest office building in Arca South (old FTI Complex in Bicutan)–Savya Financial Center (SFC).

Here’s why I think SFC is currently the best pre-selling office investment in the market today:

Optimism for Arca South (Old FTI Complex in Bicutan, Paranaque)

It’s like BGC but with better infrastructure to support growth: South ITX transport hub (2020), Direct Skyway Exit and Entrance ramps (2020), and Sub-way (2024). It’s only 5 km away from the airport and BGC, and only 7 km away from Makati.

Great Value

SFC is priced at Php240,000/sqm (as of January 25, 2019), the lowest in the market (even lower than Alveo’s Tryne Enterprise Plaza). It’s like getting Ayala Land Premier quality at Avida prices.

(Price/sqm will likely be increased to Php280,000 to match prices of Alveo’s Tryne Enterprise Plaza (TEP) after the official launch in January 31, 2019.)

Better Investment Return

Net Present Value analysis shows that SFC is the better investment due to lower price/sqm and light payment terms. I expect SFC prices to grow 6%-8% annually in the next five years, driven by office space demand particularly BPO companies (e.g. online gaming). Unlike SFC, Alveo office buildings don’t allow 24/7 operations. Moreover, rental rates in Arca South would likely match the rental rates in Makati once the infrastructure and residential projects are completed in 4Q2024.

Value Today / sqm NPV/sqm*
Savya, Arca South Php 240,000 91,722
Tryne, Arca South 280,000 72,306
HSS, BGC 300,000 14,941
AFC, Makati 308,000 41,934

*JASP Estimates


My forecasts show that SFC will have a better rental yield than its peers.
