Ayala Land, Inc. launches another flagship mixed-use development
in Makati Central Business District, called City Gate. It is the
company's first stacked tower combining three uses: retail, office
and hotel in one building. The project will have a total of 120,000
square meters of gross floor area. Once completed, it will cover a
land area of 2.2 hectares.
Their other projects include Makati Sports Club,
Alveo Corporate Center, The Residences at Greenbelt, Westborough
and Alabang Town Center.
City Gate is strategically located on Ayala
Avenue, in the corners of Amorsolo and Salcedo Streets, makes it
highly accessible to major thoroughfares such as Ayala Ave., Sen.
Gil Puyat Ave., and the Skyway. Elevated walkways will also connect
City Gate to Ayala Center and to the rest of the CBD.
This flagship will be surrounded with numerous
schools such as Don Bosco Technical Institute, Assumption College,
Colegio San Agustin and Asian Institute of Management. It is also
in nearby shopping malls like Glorietta, Greenbelt, Alphaland
Southgate Mall and SM Makati. It also offers a wide range of
residential condominiums and accommodation options such as Oriental
Garden Condominium, San Lorenzo Place, Makati Shangri-La, Crown
Regency, Eurotel Makati and InterContinental Manila.
The 120,000 square meters gross floor area will
consist of 53,000 square meters for business process outsourcing
(BPO) firms, 28,000 square meters for traditional headquarter-type
offices, 25,000 square meters for a key Seda Suites Hotel and
14,000 square meters for s retail mall.
One of the key features of City Gate will be the
open and green civic space that will be located at the end (or
start) of Makati's elevated walkway system. This 2,600 square meter
space will be a place where residents, office workers and
mall-goers can relax and unwind.
Mall patrons and residents can begin enjoying
the retail and civic space by 2017 while the offices will be ready
by 2016. Seda Suites Hotel will open its doors by 2019.
