Makati City, Philippines

Urban lifestyle and affluence are nowhere more pronounced in the Philippines than in Makati, the country's classiest city. Bustling and modern, it is the country's model for city planning, rising in less than a decade from vast stretches of empty land to become the nation's premier city.

This affluent city southwest of Manila is the country's financial center, earning it the nickname, "Wall Street of the Philippines".  The major banks, corporations, department stores as well as embassies of the different nations are based here. Situated along Ayala Avenue is the Makati Stock Exchange, which houses the trading of stock. Fully developed, well-reputed city villages provide the perfect address for office buildings, shops, and restaurants.

Right in the heart of bustling Makati, spread along Ayala Avenue, is Ayala Center, the country's business and financial center. Encompassing the Glorietta and Greenbelt shopping malls, among others, Ayala Center is also a commercial complex completely at par with the world's most modern business cosmos. Within it is the Ayala Museum, among the city's primary repositories of history, culture, and heritage, along with the Filipinas Heritage Library and Museo ng Makati.

Makati has the highest concentration of the country's finest department stores, fashion boutiques, exclusive jewelry shops and antique stores, shoe stores, bookstores, and most other commercial establishments. In identified portions, the city contains the most exclusive residential subdivisions, including Forbes Park, where many of the country's wealthy and powerful families make their homes. Five-star hotels and restaurants further provide the ultimate avenue for a life of comfort and relaxation. Source: Department of Tourism

Jeepneys ply Makati's inner roads, and connect the city to its surrounding towns and cities. The Manila Rail Transit (MRT) on EDSA has three stations located in Makati : Guadalupe, Buendia and Ayala Avenue.

Two of Metro Manila's main arteries pass through Makati. The Epifanio De los Santos Avenue (EDSA) pass along the southeast part of Makati and connects the city with Mandaluyong City and Pasay City. The South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) runs through the western part of Makati and connects the city with Manila to the north and with southern Metro Manila. The Skyway, an elevated highway built on top of SLEX, provides residents coming from southern Metro Manila a fast way to reach Makati. SLEX and EDSA intersect at the Magallanes Interchange, which is the most complex system of elevated roadways in Metro Manila.

Other major roads in Makati include Buendia Avenue, also called Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue, which connects EDSA and SLEX in the north; Ayala Avenue, an important street that runs through the Central Business District; and Makati Avenue, which connects Ayala Avenue with Buendia Avenue.

History of Makati City, Philippines

article from: Government of Makati City

At the turn of the century, the Americans established Fort McKinley in Makati, and in 1901, San Pedro de Makati, with a population of 2,500, was incorporated into the province of Rizal. On February 28, 1914, the Philippine Legislature passed Act 2390, shortening the name San Pedro Makati to Makati in the 1930's, the first airport, Nielson Airport, opened in what is now the Ayala Triangle. The first centrally planned community was established in the 1950's, and since the 1970's, Makati has been the undisputed financial and commercial capital, the once worthless swampland becoming prime real property.

Makati has also figured prominently in the political history of the Filipino. The community was one of the cradles of the revolt against Spanish colonial rule, and following the assassination of Ninoy Aquino in 1983, the epicenter of the protest movement against dictatorial rule.

The day after her assumption to the presidency in February 1986, Cory Aquino appointed Jejomar C. Binay as officer-in-charge of Makati, the first local official to be appointed by the revolutionary government. Explaining her choice of the former human rights lawyer and street parliamentarian, Aquino said "It was very important for me to place at the helm of Makati someone who would carry out the ideals of EDSA, someone who would make democracy work, not only in the freedom given to its people but also in the proper handling of government according to democratic traditions. And, to my mind, Jojo was the man".

On January 2, 1995, the Makati became a city by virtue of Republic Act 7854.

Makati has the highest GDP per capita in the Philippines.

The Central Business District (CBD) is where most of Makati's financial resources is concentrated. This is an informal district bounded by Buendia Avenue, Makati Avenue, Ayala Avenue, Pasay Road, and Pasong Tamo. It mainly encompasses Legaspi Village, Salcedo Village, and parts of Bel-Air.

Many skyscrapers rise in this area. PBCom Tower, the country's tallest building, reaches up 265 meters along Ayala Avenue. It is the headquarters of the Philippine Bank of Communications, or PBCom. One of the trading floors of the Philippine Stock Exchange is housed in Ayala Tower One and at the old Makati Stock Exchange Building, both also along Ayala Avenue.

The Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), the country's oldest bank, has its headquarters at the corner of Ayala Avenue and Paseo de Roxas. Other companies that have their offices and country/regional headquarters within Makati City, most within the CBD, include IBM, Procter & Gamble, Citibank, Ayala Corporation, Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), Metrobank, Intel Philippines, Nestle, and JG Summit. The most well-known monument of the late senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. can also be seen at Ayala Avenue corner Paseo de Roxas. Most areas of the CBD are serviced by private or commercial wi-fi hotspots.

Shopping Centers
  • Ayala Center Makati in Metro Manila - Ayala Center, along EDSA and Ayala Avenue is the most known commercial center in the city. Developed by the Ayala Corporation, it contains two shopping malls, Glorietta and Greenbelt, five hotels, and an office building. The larger of the two shopping malls is Glorietta, which itself is a cluster of malls. Rising from Glorietta 4 is the Oakwood Premier, a luxurious hotel-apartment residence at the heart of the center. Along the periphery of Glorietta are three department stores: SM Department Store Makati, Rustan's, and the Landmark. Across Makati Avenue from Glorietta is Greenbelt. This is one of the most sophisticated, modern, and expensive malls in the country. Greenbelt features dozens of coffee stores and restaurants, all overlooking a well-landscaped green park at the center where a domed Catholic chapel dominates the skyline. Other hotels in the vicinity of Ayala Center are the Makati Shangri-la Hotel, the Manila Peninsula, the Dusit Hotel Nikko Manila Garden, the Hotel Intercontinental Manila, and the New World Renaissance Hotel.
  • Rockwell Center is the other first-class shopping center in Makati. Rockwell features the large Power Plant Mall popular with expatriates. At the periphery of the center are many high-class residential condominium towers, the Asian Eye Institute, and the Ateneo Professional Schools main campus, which houses the Ateneo School of Law, the Ateneo Graduate School of Business, and the Ateneo School of Government.
  • Other shopping centers. The Cash and Carry Supermarket in the west along South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) features many products at low prices. Makati Cinema Square, along Pasong Tamo Road, used to be a popular shopping mall with the residents. Adjacent to the Makati Cinema Square is the big and modern Waltermart Mall. The Guadalupe Commercial Center, along EDSA and Pasig River is a middle-class shopping center frequented by residents from the poorer areas of Makati. PureGold is another independent Supermarket located at the end of J.P. Rizal Street, Barangay Singkamas. Shopwise, another popular Supermarket Chain in the Philippines, is situated at Pasong Tamo corner Vito Cruz.
Housing and Residences

Many of the country's wealthiest families live in Forbes Park and Dasmariñas Village, on the other side of EDSA from the Central Business District. Other well-to-do people live in San Lorenzo Village, Urdaneta Village, Bel-Air, and Magallanes Village; others live in condominium and apartment units in the Central Business District in Salcedo and Legaspi Villages. These villages are not rural settlements, but gated communities. The usage probably arose because most villages correspond to barangays. Most of the poor residents of the city live in the city's periphery specially in the eastern portions of Rizal, East and West Rembo, Pembo, Comembo, Cembo, South Cembo, and Pitogo.

Housing, especially for the poor residents of the city, remains an acute problem. Many people in the provinces migrate to Metro Manila looking for better living. Subsequently, many of them end up squatting in many areas of the metropolis. In Makati, the squatters live in poor shanties along Pasig River and in the eastern areas.

Natural Resources of Makati City, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!

Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.

Rules for premium bus to CBDs announced

By Daphne J. Magturo

THE LAND Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has released the implementing guidelines for its plan to offer premium transport services on routes with large volumes, particularly those serving central business districts (CBDs).

Memorandum Circular 2015-027, which laid out the rules for Department Order No. 2015-018 on the opening of Premium Point-to-Point bus service, invited bus operators to submit legal, technical and financial qualification documents to qualify to operate any of three franchise packages along six routes, the agency said in a statement yesterday.

The first package covers Fairview to Makati CBD and Ortigas CBD to Makati CBD; the second, Katipunan to Makati CBD and Eastwood to Makati CBD; and the last, Alabang to Ortigas CBD and Alabang to Makati CBD.

“We want to alleviate the plight of daily commuters who had difficulty traveling during peak hours from specific routes due to insufficient number of bus services that need to transport a huge volume of passengers,” LTFRB Chairman Winston M. Ginez explained.

Interested bus operators must submit their qualification documents on Jan. 15. A prequalification conference will be held on Dec. 1.

The air-conditioned bus units must either be single or double deck with external color or branding rules to be specified by the LTFRB Board. Buses should comply with the Euro IV or better emission standard, or use clean alternative power sources like electric or hybrid engines with equivalent or better emissions. Low floors and space for one wheelchair passenger are also mandatory. Seats will be reclining with a maximum of four per row.

“Selected applicants to operate any of the packages must ensure that at least half of the allocated units per route be available within six months from the Notice of Selection and before being granted of Certificate of Public Convenience (CPC),” the agency said.

A selected applicant that fails to comply will be disqualified. The board will hold a public lottery to pick the replacement from a pool of previously qualified applicants.

The remaining half of the allocated units must be available within a year from the issuance of the CPC, or else the applicant’s franchise will be canceled.
