Century City, Makati

Century City skyline, May 2015

Century City is a 3.4-hectare (8.4-acre) mixed-use development in Makati, Philippines being developed by Century Properties. Metro Manila's second tallest building, The Gramercy Residences, is located here, as well as the 17,000-square-metre (180,000 sq ft) Century City Mall.[1] Once completed, Century City will comprise two to three office buildings for business process outsourcing companies, two to three other residential towers and an IT park.[2]

The land the development sits on was the former site of International School Manila.[2] It was purchased in 2006 by a consortium composed of Century Properties Inc. and Picar Holdings. Construction of the development began in 2007.

Century City is located on a 4.8-hectare (12-acre) site at Kalayaan Avenue formerly occupied by the International School Manila for over 40 years. It occupies a significant portion of the old downtown area of Makati being redeveloped along Makati Avenue just north of the Makati Central Business District. It lies between Valdez Street and Kalayaan Avenue to the north and south, and between Salamanca Street and Spring Street to the east and west. It is also a few blocks away from Rockwell Center and is about 0.4 kilometres (0.25 mi) south of Mandaluyong and the Pasig River.
