SM Prime Holdings – one of SM Group’s real estate arms, is one the largest integrated property developers in Southeast Asia. They are a company that offers innovative and sustainable lifestyle cities through the development of malls, residences, offices, hotels, and even convention centers.
In its mission to serve the ever-changing needs and aspirations of its customers, SM Prime Holdings has developed a number of buildings throughout the country. From the number of their wonderful projects, we will be highlighting one of their unique and newer buildings that is part of the growing roster of green buildings in the Philippines – Mega Tower!
Completed in the year 2021, SM Mega Tower is strategically situated along EDSA and serves as a gateway to the exciting central business district of Ortigas.
Its very prime location is surrounded by highly commercialized establishments such as the SM Megamall, Shangrila Plaza Mall and Hotel, St Francis Square Mall, Robinson Galleria, and The Podium. This gives the office building access to hundreds of retail options which include dining options, supermarkets, commercial banks, convenience stores, fashion stores, and other specialty stores.
Mega Tower has their own Public Terminal Interchange (PTI) – which is mostly catered towards their commuting tenants that ride PUVs or shuttle vans. The building also has its own driveway that is located just beside main thoroughfares while being close to a variety of public transportation.
SM Mega Tower is highly accessible. Along EDSA, it already has access to multiple public transportations such as the buses that traverses along the highway daily which can bring you to different points of the metro. Also, along EDSA is the MRT. The closest station is the Shaw Blvd station which is a 3-minute walk from the building. Being located near SM Mega Mall gives Mega Tower easy access to P2P buses and UV expresses.
SM Prime Holdings definitely went beyond their normal when it comes to the design of Mega Tower. Its elegant and unique S-shaped design is one of its kind not only in their building portfolio but as well as in the entire country. This iconic design will be truly hard to miss as it sits at the forefront of Ortigas Center and along the main thoroughfare of the metro.
SM Mega Tower and its unique facade is engineered by Aurecon – an engineering, design, and advisory company that co-creates clever, innovative solutions to some of the world’s most complex challenges, adding value across the project lifecycle through deep technical and advisory expertise.
Aside from its elegant facade, Mega Tower features a stunning high ceiling lobby that’s elegantly designed from Statuario Quartz flooring and Travertine stone walls.
This spacious lobby enhances the experience of their tenants through good air quality and ventilation. Additionally, this unique building offers office spaces that are suited for a wide range of industries that have different working requirements.
