The celebration, themed, “New Home, Bright Future,” underscored the rapid development of the online remittance company whose mission is to provide the most trusted financial service products for Filipino immigrants and their families.

“Moving to a new office is symbolic of our bright future in the Philippines. From over a hundred employees a few years ago, we now have over 500 people in the organization and we’re still growing. This is a big step going to a bigger journey,” said Oppenheimer.

Since Remitly was founded in 2011, serving Filipino immigrants has been a
priority for the company’s management and workforce. The sacrifice and courage of Filipinos working abroad drive the firm’s commitment to tirelessly and reliably deliver on its promise to send immigrants’ monetary support for loved ones across the globe.

Oppenheimer expressed optimism that the new office at Greenfield Tower will enable the company to stay its course towards further growth. “Once I saw the
space, I knew this has got to be it. It has the same focus on quality that we expect from our team and in how we take care of both our team and our customers,” he said.

Greenfield Tower has three telecommunications providers and two separate telecom risers remote from each other. The 30-story high-rise enhances the working environment with its retail floors, roof deck garden, and function room. It will also have a restaurant on the 30th floor.

Twenty floors or 43,697.55 sqm. are dedicated for leasable prime office spaces.
Each office floor has a gross leasable area ranging from 2,141 sqm. to 2,224 sqm. Five units of 2,000-kilowatt capacity generator sets (four active, one stand-by) all are capable of operating 56 hours straight before refueling and providing 150 percent backup power for the entire building. Each floor’s
quadrant has a pre-designated data center area. It has individual electric and water meters as well.

The office’s location inside the 15-hectare Greenfield District masterplan makes it an ideal site for corporate headquarters, as well as outsourcing and offshore companies and professionals. The mini-city is complete with retail, dining, and lifestyle establishments situated at the Pavilion Mall, The Square, The Hub,
The Portal, Soho Central Retail Podium, and Zitan Retail Podium. The township is built on the principles of technological advancement and eco-friendly design. Its location in Mandaluyong City puts it close to transportation hubs, hospitals, schools, malls, and other Central Business Districts such as Ortigas Center and Makati City.

With its vision to be a smart and connected district, all buildings at Greenfield District have a built-in fiber optic framework that provides high-speed connectivity throughout the development. Such fast and dependable internet connection can enhance the competitive edge of any headquarters or business.

Designed to be the latest in office building innovation, Greenfield Tower aims to service companies such as Remitly which is driven by commitment for
growth and nation-building, and in valuing integrity and transparency.

“Remitly works hard in ensuring that our unsung heroes’ hard-earned money make it to their loved ones safely. We are pleased to welcome Remitly to Greenfield Tower and wish them all the best in helping transform immigrants’ and their families’ lives,” said Santos.
