The building provides office space for leasing for up to 59 local, regional and international companies and organizations, and is scheduled for occupation during the fourth quarter of this year.
"The construction project is right on target, and we expect to be at full occupancy when the new facility opens for business," said Erez Akerman, PDE's President. "Demand for the still-available office space remains high, although what remains is being quite rapidly depleted."
Geography of the companies which leased space in the Phase 1 building of the Panama Gem & Jewelry Center is quite broad, there are market players from Panama, Israel, India, USA, Belgium, South Africa, Brazil, Italy, Venezuela and many other countries.
The $200 million Panama Gem & Jewelry Center is the largest and most ambitious development project ever undertaken on behalf of the jewelry and gemstone trades in Latin America. Serving as a trading hub for both regional and international companies, the center will serve a market that today is worth $8 billion, and comprises 11,500 retail jewelry outlets located in 20 countries and 23 islands.
