“We are truly honored to be recognized along with the best in the country and we are equally proud to be part of Robinsons Land and its quest to bring to life world-class real estate developments here in the country,” said Sotelo.

He added: “Thank you, PropertyGuru, for validating that we are on the right track in terms of creating delightful customer moments and delivering beautiful, well-designed condominiums that our stakeholders can proudly call their own.”

“We dedicate these recognitions to the whole RLC Residences team and our customers who have been with us in this journey of building beautiful, well-designed living spaces that allows them to design and live their best lives.”

To further improve customer experience through digitalization, RLC Residences has recently launched the myRLC Home Super App, the first all-in-one mobile application exclusive for its residential communities, proving once again how it is both a winner and a leader. The platform seeks to deliver convenience and seamless services to property buyers from purchase to move-in.

It has also continued to strengthen its digitization efforts by enhancing the digital home-buying experience with 360-Degree Virtual Model Houses and Virtual Subdivision Tours, ensuring buyers can envision their future homes.

“We thank PropertyGuru for recognizing our developments as tangible catalysts of economic and social growth,” said Jericho P. Go, SVP and General Manager of Robinsons Offices. “The jobs created when people work in offices have a 5x multiplier effect spanning the sectors of transportation, food, retail, hospitality and healthcare,” he further explained.

Go shared how the GBF Centers located at the premier Bridgetowne Destination Estate, are poised to attract top IT-BPM and multinational companies. “These companies are expected to help generate the much-needed jobs that will enable us to restart the economy. Our Cybergate Iloilo Towers 1 & 2 in Pavia bring employment opportunities from the robust IT-BPM industry out to the countryside—in our bid to decongest the crowded metropolis, stimulate reverse migration, and ultimately help keep families together.”

Robinsons Offices’ strategic expansion to key provincial locations such as Cybergate Iloilo Towers 1 & 2, prevents the separation of families by providing job opportunities closer to home. It also contributes to reducing congestion in urban areas, resulting in improved livability through reduced pollution and decreased pressure on transportation, electricity, water, and essential resources.

“For every office we build, particularly those in the provinces, it means there is one less family member being separated from the family,” said Go. “Our mission is to keep the Filipino family together. This is why we are passionate about the work that we do. We know that what we do matters.”

He also mentioned how Cyber Omega rounds up Robinsons Office’s mission to “bestow a greener and brighter tomorrow for our generation and the generations to come.”

Robinsons Offices has secured LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certifications for multiple structures, such as Exxa, Zeta, Giga, and Tera towers in Bridgetowne Destination Estate. In addition, they are actively pursuing EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) certifications in collaboration with the International Finance Corporation. As the inaugural office REIT EDGE Champion, Robinsons Offices has achieved EDGE certification for five office buildings, including Cyberscape Beta, Cyberscape Gamma, Cyberscape Alpha, Robinsons Cybergate Galleria Cebu, and Cyber Omega.

“Robinsons Offices is set in its mission to develop premium, sustainable, and future-ready offices as part of our commitment towards nation-building through three core tenets: job generation, decentralization, and sustainability,” Go emphasized.

The awards are but a lovely bonus, as Robinsons Offices remains unmoved in its commitment to being a “champion for sustainability,” while strengthening families and keeping them together through decentralization of developments and expansion beyond Metro Manila.

ROBINSONS HOTELS & RESORTS: Championing World-Class Filipino Hospitality

Taking home the biggest awards for the hospitality sector is Robinsons Hotels and Resorts (RHR), the hospitality arm of Robinsons Land. It was awarded the Best Operational Hospitality Portfolio with its dynamic roster of brands strategically spread nationwide; and Best Hotel Development, Best Hotel Architectural Design, and Best Hotel Interior Design all for its flagship Fili Hotel Cebu, the Philippines’ first and only homegrown five-star hospitality brand.

“Our diverse portfolio is a product of our deep appreciation and understanding of both domestic and international guests and we look forward to serving more with additional brands and properties in the future,” he added.

RHR strengthens its position in the luxury property sector with the launch of Fili Hotel Cebu, the first and only 5-star hotel brand developed by RHR to reflect the unique hospitality ethos of the country. Landmarked within the NUSTAR Integrated Resort Cebu, surpassing other 5-star hotels in the country, Fili Hotel serves as a testament to RHR’s mission of bringing the Filipino signature culture of service to the world through a distinct luxury experience hallmarked by local artistry and craftsmanship across every guest touch point.

Thus, it has earned well-deserved design accolades for its well-appointed rooms, suites and amenities embellished with contemporary and traditional Filipino accents, giving its guests stunning views of the sea, mountains, and city skylines. The next Fili Hotel will find its home in Manila, within RLC’s premier destination estate, Bridgetowne in Pasig, as part of RHR’s expansion.


Refusing to settle but always aiming higher with a deeper purpose, RLC assures its stakeholders that it remains committed to #BuildingBetter for a brighter, more sustainable future for all Filipinos.
