MANILA, Philippines - Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC), the property arm of the Gokongwei family, has started turning over office and retail spaces of its 20-story green building Tera Tower.
The Tera Tower is RLC’s first office building in its master planned mixed-use project along C-5 in Quezon City, adjacent to the Ortigas Central Business District (CBD).
Faraday Go, general manager of RLC’s office buildings division, RLC turned over retail and office spaces to its tenants as early as June, ahead of schedule.
