Spire of One Corporate Center now being painted with red and silver color to comply with the CAAP (ATO) manual/code since this is an obstacle to airplanes flying over. And also they will install beacon lights on it.

I'm working for EDC.

I have no idea for the other floors if they were already reserved.

I'm sure I'll miss Fort Bonifacio, this has been the company's address for a long time.

Here are some info bout OCC:

One Corporate Center -- A new building with world-class facilities
· A 54-storey office building (including 9 levels as basement parking and 4 levels as Penthouse)
· 7 commercial floors for shops
· Features an earthquake-resistant structural design with 5,000 to 10,000 psi reinforced concrete columns, beams and slabs
· Uses imported solar-reflective glass for windows
· Impressive 5-storey high Ground Floor Lobby
· Automatic fire sprinkler system with fire and jockey pumps
· Has its very own underground cistern and elevated water tanks with potable water supply

Attractive Amenities
· Food court - with concessionaires offering a wide variety of choices
· Executive Dining/Restaurant – for business meetings and fine dining
· Function Rooms with audio-visual facilities – on top of EDC-owned facilities
· A gallery for art and other exhibits – overlooking the Ground Floor lobby
· Fitness Centre – for health buffs and/or ordinary wellness enthusiasts

Nuts to that! There is no way you can have an office address on "floors 37 to 42" at The Fort. Besides, developers at The Fort are more interested almost exclusively in call centres and BPOs anyways for their main tenants, so non BPO companies needing corporate offices and such must find other suitable premises to suit their needs. EDC is very lucky to have such a cool business address in one of the most beautiful office towers in the country.

This would have looked so much better if not for that worthless flyover in Meralco Avenue.

yes, Energy Development Corporation. Previously the Philippine National Oil Company- EDC.

sayang naman?

yes. A lot of EDC employees still prefer the current address in Fort Bonifacio.

The Energy Center, in which we shared the same address with the Dept. of Energy, Phil National Oil Company, PNOC - Exploration Corporation and EDC, has more bigger office spaces. Also, we have more parking spaces (OCC has limited parking), several canteens, basketball courts, tennis court and we (EDC) have our own gym.

But we don't have a choice but to move out. When EDC was acquired by the Lopez Group last 2007 because of GMAs privatization program of GOCCs, we are renting the place since then. Also, most of the Lopez Group of Companies (FPHC, First Gen, First Balfour,etc.) are located in the Ortigas area (Benpress Building). So it was the managements direction to transfer EDCs office to more adjacent location.

Also, heard a rumor that after 5 years from now, EDC will again transfer to the Rockwell area where our own building will be built. But this is still unofficial.

Could it be possible the LOPEZ CENTER TOWER?

nakalipat na kayo sa OCC?


About the building, gumagana na yung 6 out of 7 na elevators para sa high zone pero madalas magloko. Magsasakay ng tao sa ground floor and then pagkasara, hindi naman aakyat. Pagbukas, nasa ground floor ka padin.

Tapos yung mga construction workers na gumagawa sa mga offices sa high zone, dun din gumagamit ng elevators (may1 designated na service elevator for them) pero madalas, labo labo na yung mga sumasakay. Parang MRT lang

Never gonna happen. Why? Because the site of the Lopez Centre Tower is a 53 storey residential complex now underconstruction.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=924718

So unless Nestle or Phimna will vacate the existing office buildings of Rockwell in Makati, EDC will remain as is. Unless of course they are referring to another Rockwell area (like in the Meralco complex).

Anyways, if you want EDC to remain in a skyscraper, OCC it is..

Interestingly enough, that really cool photo in anak_mm's post shows another office building nearing completion. But there is no thread about it, its as if it just snuck up out of nowhere (though I was aware of its existence).
