Located in the center of Metro Manila, Ortigas Center is a location that’s ripe for property investment. The sprawling area includes quality amenities – from luxury malls to sports facilities – major educational institutions and new developments that house the offices of top local and international corporations.
If you’re looking to get in on the action and invest in a commercial property in the district, The Galleon should be at the top of your list. Construction on the high-rise mixed-use development began in 2019 and is slated for a 2025 completion. Besides modern and functional office units, the luxurious space will also house retail and residential offerings.
Read on to find out why you should invest in The Galleon.
A central and convenient location
The Galleon is situated in one of the country’s more established business districts, Ortigas Center, which stretches to Mandaluyong and Pasig City. Linked to a wide network of existing freeways – including EDSA – that lead to major parts of the city such as BGC, Makati CBD and the airport, it’ll be a breeze getting to many other destinations in Metro Manila and beyond. Retail attractions such as Robinsons Galleria, SM Megamall and The Podium are also within easy reach, as are various top hotels, educational institutions and sport complexes.
Exciting new infrastructure
Two upcoming infrastructure projects are set to make Ortigas Center even more connected with the rest of the city. The upcoming Santa Monica-Lawton Bridge, which is set to be completed imminently, will offer a direct link between Ortigas Center and BGC, lessening the travel time from one hour to just 12 minutes. There are also two planned subway stations in the works – Ortigas North and Ortigas South – with a target completion year of 2025, which coincides with The Galleon’s completion and handover dates.
Gorgeous and considered architecture
Set across a lot area of 6,996 sqm, The Galleon’s high-rise office tower is a Grade-A traditional office that will sit on top of a large retail podium. Built to resemble a ship, its elegant and striking structure stands out amid the rest of the Metro Manila cityscape. The office tower will feature spacious suites with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, sleekly designed public spaces, high ceilings and beautiful landscaped communal gardens throughout.
An eye on sustainability and energy efficiency
Other than its attractive aesthetics, The Galleon is an eco-friendly and sustainable development that was built with energy efficiency in mind. The complex is compliant with the Green Building Code and is also pursuing a LEED Silver Accreditation. All office units contain double-glazed windows in order to reduce air-conditioning use and energy consumption and energy-efficient LED lights are employed throughout. Furthermore, the building is equipped with efficient water fixtures for reduced water consumption. Rain water will be collected to irrigate the landscaped gardens, thereby conserving fresh water.
High potential for growth
Upon completion, The Galleon will be the only mixed-use development in the Ortigas Central Business District, making it a unique investment with huge growth upside. Rental rates in the region are steadily increasing, making lease rates extremely attractive, and The Galleon offers a range of unit sizes (spanning 75 sqm to 195 sqm) to suit your needs. Coupled with its central location and exciting upcoming infrastructure, there’s no reason not to set your sights on investing in The Galleon and claiming a prized piece of Ortigas Center for yourself.
