Georgetown Cybermall, located along RN Pelaez Boulevard will be expanding vertically in consonance with its plan to have it accredited by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) as an Information Technology (IT) Center.

This was revealed during the recent City Council session which discussed the local government endorsement as required by PEZA before it can be declared an IT Center through a Presidential Proclamation signed by no less than President Benigno S. Aquino III.

Georgetown Cybermall will add another floor and accordingly, several IT firms have expressed interest in relocating at the building once it is proclaimed an IT Center.

If approved, it will be the 6th IT Center/Park in the city and 12th Economic Zone if we include nearby areas to be accredited by PEZA. Others are listed below: (“Right Click, Save As” to download Presidential Proclamation).
