The Podium West Tower, the office component of the mixed-use development, The Podium, will soon house the corporate offices of a diverse group of companies across the insurance, law, advertising, real estate, trading, entertainment, financing, coworking and consultancy sectors.

At 48-storeys, the Podium West Tower is the tallest Grade A commercial building located at the heart of the bustling Ortigas Central Business District (CBD). It offers approximately 90,000 sqm of premium office space that would cater to the increasing local and multinational businesses looking to establish their presence in one of Metro Manila’s premier CBDs.

“Over the years, the Ortigas Center has emerged as a key business hub within Metro Manila. Our expansion of The Podium development to include a bigger retail footprint and a new office component reflects our confidence in the long-term growth of the Ortigas Centre as a premier business hub,” said Mr. Oh Lock Soon, President of Keppel Philippines Properties, Inc., a subsidiary of Keppel Land.

According to a report from Colliers International Philippines, the expected completion of the Manila Subway System and the Bonifacio Global City-Ortigas Link is set to improve connectivity between Ortigas and other business districts. This, in turn, will drive businesses to the Ortigas Center.

The Podium West Tower features a modern security system, wide corridors, curtain walls and high ceilings of approximately 2.8 meters that allow for flexible configuration of workspaces. As a green building, it is designed to consume a minimum of 14% less energy and 30% less water than other standard buildings designs.

The office tower also offers direct access to The Podium Mall, an adjoining 6-storey lifestyle shopping center that boasts a gamut of dining, wellness and other lifestyle amenities. The mall features a 2,000 sqm garden wall with over 6,500 plants, making it the largest vertical green wall in the country.

In recognition of its sustainable features, The Podium Complex was awarded the LEED Gold Mark (Core & Shell) pre-certification by the US Green Building Council, and is the first building in the Philippines to receive the provisional Green Mark Gold Award by the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore.

The Podium is a joint venture between Keppel Philippines Properties Inc, a member of Keppel Land Limited (Keppel Land) and BDO Unibank, Inc. (BDO), a member of the SM Group.
