AyalaLand Logistics Holdings Corp. (ALLHC) has launched Pampanga Technopark, a 270-hectare mixed-use development in Mabalacat.

The development, the first master-planned agro-industrial township in the region, will be occupied by manufacturing and logistics locators, and will have an agricultural wholesale market, and commercial-retail spaces for the township’s social and recreational activities, ALLHC said in a statement.

Phases 1 and 2 are registered with the Board of Investments as domestic industrial zones, while Phase 3 is being lined up.

With shopping, dining, and recreational spaces soon to rise in Pampanga Technopark, ALLHC said the development is designed to bring lifestyle experiences to the communities working and residing within or around the area.

Pampanga Technopark is allotting 2,000 square meters of gross leasable area across over 30 retail spaces featuring homegrown Kapampangan restaurants, plus several retail and service merchants.

Lots for commercial uses such as shops and outlets, medical centers, offices, co-working spaces, business hotels, and more are available. There will also be a variety of quick-service restaurants and a gas station for motorists.

Pampanga Technopark will also be a new location for a bagsakan, a bazaar that will be complemented by ALLHC’s ALogis and ALogis Artico facilities, all slated for completion within the first half of 2024.

The ALogis ready-built facilities will span 8,000 sqm of warehouse space, while ALogis Artico cold storage will feature 5,000 pallet positions with temperature ranging from 10°C to -20°C.

The bagsakan will cover 3,000 sqm of space, offering both wholesale and retail agricultural produce and local products within the marketplace. ALLHC said all components will support the agricultural supply value chain in Luzon.

“We will introduce a modern food terminal and this will be supported by our cold storage and dry warehouse facilities,” said ALLHC president and chief executive officer Jose Emmanuel Jalandoni.

“Farmers from Northern Luzon and all over Central Luzon can bring their produce here, and we can preserve and store them with the proper facilities. We hope this will help all the farmers and our supply chain.”

Pampanga Technopark will be accessible through various major road networks including the North Luzon Expressway, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, MacArthur Highway, and the North-South Commuter Railway project that will soon connect the existing Tutuban (Manila) Station to Clark.

ALLHC said Pampanga Technopark is also poised to serve as a gateway to the international markets as it is strategically located near major infrastructure. It is about 30 minutes away from Clark International Airport and an hour away from Subic port.

The upcoming New Manila International Airport in Bulacan will be roughly an hour away from the development.

Moreover, Pampanga Technopark “bears with it the promise of connecting commerce and communities.”

ALLHC said Pampanga Technopark will ensure pedestrian mobility and transit connectivity with allocated sidewalks throughout the township and an easily accessible public transport terminal serving both in-city and regional transit routes.

Helping improve the property’s resilience to environmental stress and geohazards are native trees that will be used for landscaping, five detention ponds for rainwater, and green and open spaces, including a dedicated 1.2-hectare park area.

ALLHC aims to build its national footprint by being in 10 key areas by 2025, creating a network of industrial and logistics developments by following the key road infrastructure and the nautical highway.

A subsidiary of Ayala Land Inc., ALLHC has principal business interests in holding companies, commercial leasing, industrial lot sales and development, and retail electricity supply. Its subsidiaries include Laguna Technopark Inc.; Unity Realty Development Corp.; Orion Land Inc.; Tutuban Properties Inc.; LCI Commercial Ventures Inc.; and FLT Prime Insurance Corp.
