24-Hour Metro Centers

Quezon City has a number of mixed-use, 24-hour communities, with businesses, residential condominiums, restaurants, and malls in integrated developments. Common features of these areas are public access to wireless fidelity services, integrated commercial centers, 24-hour restaurant services, 24/7business operations, and very pedestrian-friendly environments. These areas include:

• Eastwood City, which is a 16-hectare state-of-the-art, masterplanned, residential, business, commercial and entertainment city development of a private corporation in Bagumbayan, Quezon City. Its main feature is an urban economic zone for information technology (IT)-driven companies. It is the first cyberpark accredited by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority. Locators include customer contact centers, electronic publishers, e-commerce systems managers, other systems managers and integrators, multimedia service providers, internet access and data transport service providers, and web developers.

Aside from the rise in number of employees, Eastwood City Cyberpark also posted improvements in exports of Offshoring & Outsourcing (O&O) locators reaching US$348.31 million, as well as in salaries from PEZA-registered companies at Php 6.72 billion. Non-business process outsourcing establishments in Eastwood have provided jobs to more than 30,000.

Companies like IBM, Citibank, eTelecare, Trend Micro, Canon, TOEI Animation and others are located at Eastwood. Those who live and work in this community enjoy advanced high-bandwidth telecommunications system and fiber optic backbone.

This place also features 12 luxury condominium residences, with at least two more under construction. It is the first pet-friendly shopping and recreational community in the country.

• Araneta Center is a 35-hectare property recently revitalized to include a new commercial and residential community complementing the area's centerpiece, the Big Dome or the coliseum. Within this area are large shopping malls and supermarkets, theaters, restaurants, drug stores, specialty showrooms, art galleries and offices.

The Araneta Center Cyber Park is an 8-hectare business area which consists of modern four to six storey office buildings. Among its locators are: Accenture, a major player in the business process outsourcing industry with over 100,000 employees worldwide; APAC Customer Services Inc., with a 2,000-seat call center operation; and Advanced Contact Solutions, which located here its sixth contact center facility in the country.

Another information technology park in this area is Gateway Tower, a 32-level mixed-use building with five levels of commercial center, 22 levels of office areas, two levels penthouse and a helipad at the roof deck. The total gross floor area is approximately 75,056 sq. m.

Free wireless fidelity service is offered in areas around the 35-hectare Araneta Center, making it possible for people to use their laptops, PDAs, or Dual-mode phones to access the Internet. This area averages about a million transients a day.

• The UP–Ayala Land TechnoHub is the country's first full-scale, campus-based science and technology park, which was developed jointly by the country's premier university, University of the Philippines and property developer Ayala Land. It occupies 20 hectares of the within the 37.5 hectare UP North Science and Technology Park.

It offers a campus-style development for information technology companies, inspired by the vision of Stanford's Silicon Valley, which seeks to nurture a dynamic learning laboratory for academic and industry collaborative projects.

The Hub features ten buildings surrounding a park of landscaped spaces and a man-made lagoon. Each building is designed for 24-hour business operations, with floor plates of approximately 2,600 square meters, 100% back-up generators, centralized chilled water system, two elevators, and multiple telecom providers. They are also designed to be environmentally sustainable with features such as a district cooling system, a water recycling system, a storm-water management system.

The place has a Tech Portal, which houses start-up companies, incubators, an information desk, conference and meeting rooms, and exhibit areas. There is a support retail component featuring various dining places, a bookstore, coffee shops, and other service establishments to cater to the needs of its occupants.


An emerging metro center is the Quezon City Central Business District located in the city's North and East Triangles and Veterans Memorial area. This is a 250.6 hectare masterplanned development which a World Bank study has confirmed to be "the center of gravity of all commercial activities in the coming years."

Designed to be a vibrant and environment-friendly CBD that actively contributes to national and metropolitan development and, at the same time, serves as a model urban environment, the CBD will position itself as the priority location within Quezon City for businesses in the city's main clusters, health and wellness and information technology, with strong support facilities (financial services, institutional and educational activities, commercial and retail, culture and entertainment, hotel and residential facilities). It will eventually attract also the main national or regional offices of large financial and commercial companies.

The CBD will have the prerequisites of a world-class CBD: walkable, vibrant night and day, quiet neighborhoods with easy access to retail and urban services, building designs that preserve human scale, public areas that have good aesthetic design, lively commercial centers and transport-oriented developments.

It will have mixed-use development oriented towards transit facilities. This minimizes travel to work, avoids congestion experienced in other CBDs, creates greater opportunities for social contact, urban vitality and safer places, achieves better energy efficiency and efficient use of spaces and buildings, and increases efficiency of urban facilities.

The CBD will have unique modern and futuristic urban architecture, with an underlying Filipino theme. Existing vantage points to the Quezon Memorial Circle and the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife will be preserved. New ones will be established.

Approximately 64% of the total land area will be allocated to mixed-use residential, commercial, institutional and transit-oriented development; 22% will be allocated to roads, and 14% to parks and open spaces.
