News : P2-B Modern City Rises in Palayan
Palayan City, Nueva Ecija, Philippines, Jan 3, 2015 -- Work was set to start next month on a modern "city within a city" government center here, Mayor Adrianne Mae Cuevas said on Friday.
She said the Palayan City Business Hub (PCBH) will be a one-stop shop government center and commercial area with modern buildings and a 7,500 square meters central plaza, which will serve a main activity center.
"The center is located on a 3.4 hectare site in Barangay Singalat donated by the city," Cuevas said.
The PCBH will rise next to the provincial capitol and the Palayan City Hall. Offices of government agencies will be transferred here from Cabanatuan City to make it easy for people to transact business with the government.
The project is a joint venture agreement between the provincial government and Alloy MTD, a Malaysian conglomerate. They will erect four multi-story buildings.
Cuevas said the provincial government has obtained the approval of the Energy Regulatory Commission to connect directly with the Luzon grid to ensure stable and sufficient power.
"The project will generate 13,000 jobs, including 10,000 call center agents in two BPO (business processing outsourcing buildings," she said.
