SKYNORA has arrived in Davao City and is set to raise the bar in the office space leasing in Davao.

Skynora, a premium office space provider, formally announced its presence in Davao on December 4 during an investors' and media launch in Marco Polo Hotel-Davao.

It is set to be operational by January next year and offers premium office solutions, including seat leasing. The 491-seater facility is a mixture of BPM seat leasing and co-working spaces.

Months before its official opening, the company has attracted a number of international and local firms that intend to expand presence in Davao City.

Skynora Vice President Julie Go said in a media interview that interests among prospective clients are strong, especially those from the Business Process Management (BPM) industry.

"There are a lot of inquiries already. In fact, we talked to different companies, not just based in Davao but in Manila and abroad but nothing is official yet," she said.

She added that the profiles of these companies are BPMs (mixture of local and international players), insurance companies, and freelancers, among others.

"Seat leasing is offered to BPMs, IT firms or any companies who have the same needs, who wanted to start their own businesses, to have expansion. It will be affordable because we will be providing not just the space but also the amenities like the pantry, the lounge, the reception, etc.," Go said.

Skynora President and CEO Asaad Qureshi, who is a Canadian, said that he invested in the Philippines, particularly in Davao City, because of its economic growth potentials.

"Davao has a lot of growth potential, there so much growth that is yet to be tapped," he said.

Skynora is located at Robinson's Cybergate Delta along JP Laurel Avenue, Davao City.
