Makati City has long been associated with ideas such as wealth, success, goals and dreams. And its outward appearance support this with its tall skyscrapers, lavish hotels, and countless shops and restaurants that fill its streets. It can be intimidating to any individual or corporation given that everything about Makati screams "expensive". But dig deep enough and you can start to discover that beyond its expensive walls, there are still parts of it that keep the frugal spirit of the Filipino alive. There are jolly-jeeps scattered along small streets, affordable eateries for its workforce, and in some parts of it, the classic jeepneys and buses are still present as a viable transportation option for the budget-conscious.

This also holds true for its corporate real estate properties. For smaller companies and start-ups, starting in Ayala Avenue might not be the best option in terms of cost-effectiveness.

These options are still within the Makati CBD and share the same advantages that its more expensive neighbors enjoy. Same great labor pool, support services, transportation services and everything else that makes Makati great as a business location.
