Ortigas Celebrates its 83rd Year with a Strengthened Partnership

With 83 years in the Philippine real estate landscape, Ortigas & Company recently signed an agreement with D.M. Consunji, Inc. for the structural and architectural works of The Royalton—the first luxury residential tower set to rise in Capitol Commons. This 64-storey residential masterpiece is the second project awarded by Ortigas & Company to the leading Philippine construction firm afterViridian in Greenhills.

Ortigas & Company has been in the real estate business and has been the name behind prime real estate addresses and commercial and business centers. Until now, prime residential areas developed by Ortigas & Company such as the Greenhills and Valle Verde subdivisions, among others, and the well-loved Greenhills Shopping Center, continue to experience an increase in their land values. The quality of Ortigas & Company developments isproven by time. On the other hand, DMCI is the leading construction firm in the country and has a proven track record of more than 500 structures in its 50-year history in the Philippines. It is also known as a 'Builder of Landmarks' and a pioneer in the application of the latest in engineering and construction technology in most of the items in its portfolio.

A partnership cemented by a passion for excellence. In photo are: DMCI Vice President Luis C. Pastor, EVP and General Manager for Construction of DMCI Edilberto C. Palisoc, President and Chief Operating Officer of DMCI Jorge A. Consunji, General Manager of the Real Estate Division of Ortigas & Co. Joselito F. Santos, Atty. Ignacio R. Ortigas and Jose Luis Ortigas Montilla.

With DMCI's reputation and Ortigas & Company's commitment to quality real estate developments, it was no surprise that Ortigas & Company fully entrusts the execution of two of its most ambitious and challenging projects to date, Viridian in Greenhills and The Royalton. It is only DMCI that Ortigas & Company trusts to provide for the quality Ortigas & Company is known for.

During the signing ceremony, DMCI acknowledged that The Royalton is an engineering feat as it features an iconic design that marries form and function. Its eye-catching sinuous figure appears to gracefully flow with the wind and its curves come from the unit balconies, which provide proper air circulation and shade from the afternoon sun. There are no two units alike—each line and contour was carefully planned out to give the tower character. With The Royalton's distinct architecture, Ortigas & Company needed a construction firm that will be able to execute each curve flawlessly.

The Royalton's coming to life in 2018 will signify the shared drive of the two companies towards excellence, and towards changing the skyline and landscape of Metro Manila.
