Cebu-based real estate developer JEG Development Corporation (JDC) recently launched JEG Tower @ One Acacia, a LEED Gold certified 22-storey office and retail high-rise development in Cebu City. JEG Tower @ One Acacia is JDC’s first venture into high-rise buildings.
“JEG Tower @ One Acacia is characterized by its energy-efficient features, reduced water usage, and efficient waste management,” said Marko Sarmiento, JDC’s chief operating officer. “It is set to become Cebu’s first commercial development to use solar energy, as we have entered into a 20-year power purchase agreement with COREnergy for a zero cash-out solar photovoltaic plant.”
The building also features a green roof (shown in photo) that can help reduce stress and encourage socialization, positively impacting the wellness of employees. JEG Tower @ Acacia earned a LEED Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council in 2021. The development was awarded 68 points, making it the highest-scoring LEED for Core and Shell project in Cebu.
