Rockwell Center, Makati: Growing and flourishing

Rockwell Center in Makati continues to live up to its reputation of being one of the finest urban estates in the country, with the launch of a new office tower, 1 Proscenium.

The newly launched project adds to Rockwell Workspaces’ portfolio of curated and well-designed workspaces. This includes Rockwell Business Center Ortigas, Rockwell Business Center Sheridan, Santolan Town Plaza, and 8 Rockwell.

Green building

Located within the Proscenium at Rockwell, 1 Proscenium is a 21-floor LEED-certified building with a typical layout of 640 square meters of flexible office spaces fit for one’s business needs.

Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the exclusive community and a steady stream of natural light, while a cafe at the mezzanine is fit for quick coffee breaks.

As a Green building, 1 Proscenium makes use of energy efficient LED lights and low-consumption water fixtures.

It also has operable windows that not only allow greater air circulation but are also energy efficient with the use of passive ventilation.

Proscenium community

Within the exclusive Proscenium community in Rockwell Center, the building enjoys privacy and the convenience of nearby retail areas.

Office workers also enjoy accessibility within the whole business district as the area is also bike-friendly, and affords accessibility with the Pantaleon bridge which will soon connect Makati City to Mandaluyong.

These features contribute to what makes an office space safe and adaptable in light of the pandemic.

Safe and secured

Furthermore, occupants will enjoy an uninterrupted and comfortable workflow with 100 percent back-up power, as well as guaranteed safety with exclusive access via an RFID card system, 24-hour CCTV monitoring, and security and property management teams on standby 24/7.

1 Proscenium also utilizes the latest Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Inverter Air Conditioning System by Samsung.

Office market is looking up

The pandemic may have impacted the office market, but it is expected to fully recover over the next two years.

Rockwell Workspaces, in particular, maintains a strong occupancy rate and enjoys a higher capital appreciation because of its proven track record and strategic locations.

In the past five years before 2020, rental rates have been steadily increasing in Makati CBD and vacancy stood at only five percent.

Within the sought-after Rockwell Center in Makati, 1 Proscenium is expected to command rental rates at par with the CBDs, as seen in other developments by Rockwell Workspaces.

For instance, 8 Rockwell capital values have appreciated by 90 percent from its original purchase price.

This makes 1 Proscenium an ideal real estate investment.

Office spaces in the building are also available to companies for lease.

Indeed, with its strong value-for-money proposition, 1 Proscenium is certainly an investment for the future.
