Makati is one of the prime central business districts in the Philippines and is often touted as the business capital of the country. Characterized by its tall skyscrapers and convenient access to shopping malls, hospitals, and government offices, this is the perfect place for companies looking to have their own office space.
Santos Knight Frank manages a portfolio of commercial properties in Makati but for this article, we have just rounded up five buildings to consider for your next office location.
Zuellig is one of the tallest buildings in Makati, rising above 150 meters with a total of 33 floors. Located at the prime intersection between Makati Avenue and Paseo de Roxas, it is known for its environmentally conscious design, recognizable facade, and premium finishings.
It is the first Platinum Level LEED Core and Shell building in the Philippines, meaning it was able to meet certifications for being a ‘green building’ with its design that minimizes heat gain and allows light to bleed through and show the marvelous view of the city. Inside the building is a column-free layout that allows for flexibility in the office design. This is perfect for businesses who want to go green and who opt for natural light over artificial lighting for their employees.
Also known as the 6780 JAKA Building, this 15-story property is located on Ayala Avenue located next to the SSS building and across the PBCom Tower. Due to its prime location, 6780 Ayala is easily accessible through different modes of transportation such as buses, jeepneys, buses, vans, and MRT.
