Situated along 26th corner 9th Avenue, The Finance Center will undoubtedly become one of Bonifacio Global City’s well-recognized landmarks after W City Center. Its modern design, prime location, and environment friendly features will arguably make it one of the most sought after office towers in BGC.

 

1. The 42-story office tower was designed by Gensler, the same firm behind the design of Shanghai Tower, the second tallest building in the world.

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, with offices in 16 countries, Gensler is among the most profitable architectural and design firms in the world. It was founded in 1965 by Art and Drue Gensler, with James Follett.

Aside from designing the Shanghai Tower, Gensler is also behind the Tower at PNC Plaza in Pennsylvania, San Francisco International Airport Terminal 2, Incheon International Airport Terminal 2, Westin DEN Hotel and Transit Center in Colorado, the NVIDIA Headquarters in Santa Clara, and the recently completed ORÉ Central in BGC.

 

2. New York-based Thornton Tomasetti and Philippine-based Sy^2 + Associates were tasked to work on the building’s structural engineering.

 

3. The Finance Center was developed by Daiichi Properties–making it their fourth property to be completed within Bonifacio Global City. Among the firm’s other projects include World Plaza, One World Place, and Regent Parkway–all located in Bonifacio Global City, as well as Orient Square, and The Taipan Place both located in Ortigas.

5. The building was recently designated as a Philippine Economic Zone Authority Information Technology Center which entitles PEZA-registered businesses to fiscal and non-fiscal incentives.

 

6. It features an expansive 1,700 square meter plaza with sunken gardens, water features, and a sky garden above its retail podium.

 

7. Well before the building’s completion, it was awarded the Five-Star Best Office Development by the Asia Pacific Property Awards in 2016.
