The callcenter wave has officially hit Davao City’s shores. Today, big names in the contact center or the BPO industry are now starting to establish their facilities in Davao. BPOs such as Western Wats, Sutherland, Link2Support, Sitel, and others. Hence, the demand for office space in Davao is now increasing.
Because of this, some local businessmen are now into the construction of office spaces and call center facilities in the city. Another facility to watch out for is this mid rise building which is underconstruction and can be found at corner F.Torres St and Jacinto Ext. This would be a mixed-use project. It will have a retail component and a BPO facility at its top most level.
The building is just beside Metro Lifestyle – an enclave with bistros, a gym, and spa. The building is few minutes away from Luisa Avenue Square, another IT complex that houses PeopleSupport and the soon to be completed midrise building of Sutherland (another BPO).
