By the first quarter of 2015, a 2-billion peso corporate tower
will be completed at the corner of ADB Avenue and Dona Julia Vargas
in Ortigas Center. The 47-story BDO Corporate Center in Ortigas is
part of the development plan for a 2-hectare commercial property by
SM Keppel Land, Inc. and BDO. The class-A office building will be
above The Podium, an upscale shopping center located within the central business district of Ortigas. A third
of the building will be leased out to tenants looking for premium
office space in one of the most active
business districts in the metro, while the rest will be occupied by
BDO, complementing its bank-wide expansion program.
Other than the high-rise corporate tower, the 2-hectare commercial
property master plan also includes another office building,
serviced apartments, mixed-used development with hotel, and the
long-awaited extension of The Podium. Large-scale operations in the
area prompted BDO to invest in an office property in Ortigas
Center. The various components in the grand development plan will
make the new BDO tower a prime office location and investment option.
Tenants that will occupy the building will add further to the
existing market for surrounding commercial and business outlets.
And with the building's high quality and efficient design, this can
be an essential element to the Ortigas Business Center landscape
The office tower design
With transparent curtain walls, vertical metal panels, and silver
stripes as part of its key visual features, the design of BDO
Corporate Center Ortigas meets international grade A standards.
Arquitectonica, an internationally renowned architectural firm, is
behind its design. This office property has been planned with
functionality and efficiency in mind. Its floor plates will provide
flexible office layouts for tenants. This corporate tower is
designed for Gold LEED certification, with its eco-friendly
building systems, construction materials, design, and facilities.
Tenants can take advantage of this building feature not only for
creating a greener work environment but also for reduced operation
costs. Considering its prime business location, other developments
in the pipeline, and grade A building structure and design, the
soon-to-rise BDO Corporate Center has the quintessential elements
for today's competitive office market.
