Setting up an office in Makati is the ideal thing to do, not just because it’s the country’s top CBD. Makati City is the center of growth and dynamism, and its proximity to Manila and other progressive areas in the South make it attractive to potential investors and entrepreneurs.
To further appreciate the potential of Makati, here are some reasons why the city is the prime business district in the Philippines.
The offices and towering skyscrapers of Makati are less than an hour away from Manila, and private vehicles can pass through Roxas Boulevard to reach Buendia Avenue. Meanwhile, commuters can take a bus or catch the Metro Rail Transport (MRT) stations along EDSA, and get off at Buendia or Ayala Stations. There are also Point-to-Point (P2P) buses that start and end their trips at different points around the city.
The city is complete with establishments to provide the necessary services to its people. Makati’s Central Post Office, for example, is a few steps away from Centro Escolar University. It is also a few blocks away from FEU Makati, Ateneo de Manila, and Mapua University.
Besides the educational institutions in the area, the city has its fair share of highly commendable hospitals and healthcare facilities. Last but not the least, there are banks and ATMs all around, so one can easily get access to cash in times of need.
The cosmopolitan lifestyle of Makati CBD encourages the life of the hustlers. A person can have a day job and still have time to explore their passions after office. Financial companies such as BPI, BDO, and Metrobank, as well as other industry power players (including Alliance Global, PLDT, GT Capital Group, JG Summit Holdings, Lucio Tan Group, Megaworld Corporation and Metro Pacific Investments Corporation) also established their headquarters in the city.
As Makati boasts of the best infrastructure (not just in the country, but even in Southeast Asia), it is an ideal location to invest in a Makati office for sale or rent. The place is well-connected, and caters to both startups and expanding business operations. Makati is just 20 minutes away from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), and embassies of countries such as Cambodia, Canada, Korea, Malaysia, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Spain and Papua New Guinea have their offices in the bustling city.
There is no denying that numerous exclusive communities in the city. Bel-Air Village, Barangay San Antonio, San Lorenzo Village and Salcedo Village are some of the places where the influential and affluent built their lavish homes in the city. Expats also choose to settle within this business district for the luxurious condos and world-class hotel amenities to choose from.
International high-end brands entering the Philippine market often establish their first branch in a Makati mall. Other than shopping, the city has two museums – Yuchengco and Ayala – as well as recreational parks and greeneries in Circuit Makati, Ayala Triangle, and Washington SyCip Park.
There are different reasons why the city of Makati remains the top central business district. For one, it has been around for a long time, but it continues to evolve through the years. It’s continuous performance as a top player in the industry of finance, trade and other services are sure to sustain the city’s growth and development.
Aside from being the economic center of the Philippines, Makati is equated with wealth and money. Working in a corporate playground like Makati has its perks and privileges beyond working in sought-after corporate addresses.
Makati companies welcome both seasoned professionals and fresh graduates who want to conquer the corporate challenge. In Makati’s concrete jungle, the right job awaits the right applicant.
Makati has 33 barangays, and the CBD is located in barangays of San Antonio, Urdaneta, Bel-Air, and San Lorenzo. The highest priced offices are also located in these areas, especially those located at the Makati Stock Exchange Building and Ayala Triangle.
Office spaces are also found outside these areas which are equally valuable, such as Poblacion and La Paz. Office building developers are both local and international with local partnerships. In fact, the ongoing digital shift is fueling the sprouting of new office developments inside and outside Makati, as well as the robust infrastructure and the talent pool being other contributing factors. Overall, the economic growth is also crucial for the developer’s decision making, growing by 6.1% in 2018 Q3.
Makati has some of the strictest traffic regulations in the country, with the government implementing gridlock traffic management during rush hours. While there are several transport terminals, the Metro Railway Transit (MRT) is the best option for commuters, if you do not have your own car to get to and around the CBD.
FX taxis transport commuters from 10 am to 12 mn. Major drop-off and pick-up points are near shopping malls. Whether you are from Quezon City, Pasig City or Marikina City, you have three options: Ayala, Magallanes or the Buendia station. The underpass system will then help you navigate the busy Makati streets.
