Filinvest Land Inc., one of the largest integrated real estate developers owned by the Gotianun family, said Wednesday net income in 2017 climbed nine percent to P5.83 billion from a year ago, boosted by the strong rental of retail and office development projects.

“We are looking forward to the company’s accelerated growth in 2018 as our new office buildings and shopping malls become operational and generate incremental rental revenues. We also expect residential revenues to remain stable,” FLI president and chief executive Josephine Gotianun Yap said.

FLI operates 22 office buildings totaling 348,000 square meters of gross leasable area.

Two more buildings have been substantially completed and are due for turnover—Cebu Cyberzone Tower Two in Lahug, Cebu City, and Cyberzone Mimosa Building 1 in Clark. The two will add 36,000 square meters of leasable office area.
