Art sparks hope at Aspire Corporate Plaza

Boutique developer Golden Bay Holdings Inc. recently opened its first prime commercial property, Aspire Corporate Plaza.

Through strategic planning and intuitive decision-making, Aspire was able to meet its target opening on Nov. 30, 2020. As such, the 11-story building at the heart of the Macapagal Bay Complex in Pasay City stands not only as a symbol of modern architectural innovation but also of hope to many people.

Golden Bay partnered with the Negrense Volunteers for Change (NVC) Foundation to create unique art pieces that reflect the nature of business of Aspire Corporate Plaza’s occupants.

“Our idea was for the artworks to reflect the lifestyle of each individual client. In order to capture this, the Golden Bay team had to work religiously with our tenants and NVC. Hours and hours of collaborative planning, designing and scheming were allotted by both sides to ensure that we deliver intimate and carefully curated art pieces,” says Golden Bay COO Jardin Wong.

Under the partnership, Golden Bay has commissioned artisans under NVC’s Artisans of Hope livelihood program to create unique art pieces for each tenant space.

The initial partnership of Golden Bay and NVC Foundation has already benefited at least 30 craftsmen and artisans under the program, which aims to promote world-class Filipino craftsmanship by exemplifying a high standard of quality with their art pieces. NVC trains, nurtures, and inspires their artisans to go beyond the ordinary and push their artistic boundaries with a keen eye for detail.

NVC Foundation’s mission is to fight hunger and poverty by providing sustainable livelihood opportunities to the less-fortunate has allowed the organization to grow exponentially to one of the leading foundations in the country. 

This similarity in cause and persistence is also what led Golden Bay to partner with NVC. The company’s transformation from an iconic seafood restaurant to one of the leading boutique developers in the country is similarly inspiring.

Golden Bay also goes beyond its boundaries, putting unrelenting focus to deliver outstanding projects that serve value, quality and sophistication. “Our keen eye for detail reverberates across all of our departments, from our in-house engineering and architecture team down to our building management personnel, who constantly collaborate with industry mavericks to come up with practical and unique solutions that benefit both owners and tenants for the long term,” says Wong.

Moving forward, Golden Bay aims to positively contribute to the development of the country by building projects that ultimately bring value to the community—whether in designing nature-inspired condominiums, state-of-the-art office buildings and unique civic centers; providing employment opportunities to young professionals; or inspiring other potential developers to take the leap forward.
