The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) has found a new home in Bonifacio Global City. The PSE office tower will rise in a premium real estate block known as the One Bonifacio High Street, a 3-hectare mixed-use development by the Ayala Group and its partners. Touted as a principal address in BGC, the P30-billion development project is the biggest investment so far in just one single complex. The construction of the whole block, which will house a world-class hotel, high-end shopping mall, luxury residential tower, and retail, dining, and entertainment centers, will take over 4 years to complete. The new PSE tower will be fully constructed by mid-2016.
The urban block where an iconic landmark will be constructed is bound by 28th Street, 3rd Avenue, and 5th Avenue in BGC. The new home of the PSE will be on the eastern part of the urban block. The P3.5 billon-PSE tower is a 22-storey commercial building with glass façade. The high-rise corporate building will have 29,000 sqms. of leasable space. About 19,900 sqms. of leasable space will be occupied by the headquarters, with its unified trading floor and offices for the trading participants or member-brokers. The triple-A PSE tower is designed with a double high entrance in the lobby and with an amenity floor for conference rooms and business lounges.
Within the block, there will be a premium retail center with deluxe stores and dining options, a 5-star Shangri-La Hotel with top-class amenities and facilities, and a high-class residential tower with sky villas called The Suites. The PSE headquarters will be surrounded by some of the best retail, residential, and hotel components in the new lifestyle destination in BGC-the One Bonifacio High Street.
