In searching for the right office for your business operations, the location of your office is a major consideration, as it will determine the flexibility and ease with which you can operate. Your location can determine the ease or difficulty of your day-to-day logistics.=
Some major factors to consider in choosing the right location for your office are:
- Accessibility to public transportation (besides ease of travel, a location’s convenience to transportation is also a determinant of office leasing rates)
- Availability of nearby amenities and lifestyle hubs
- Availability of office space that suits your business’ operational needs (ie., if you are a technologically-savvy company, you should look for serviced offices, as they would be more equipped to handle your needs than traditional office spaces.
Below are the major business centres in the Philippines, ideal for your business, whether for startup or continuing operations. All of them, to a larger or smaller extent, provide the conveniences of transportation accessibility and close proximity to amenities and high-end residences:
MAKATI BUSINESS DISTRICT (AYALA)
This is the leading business district in the Philippines. Despite competition from neighbouring cities in the recent years, Makati remains home to the liveliest commercial and shopping centers, and is still a popular choice for Filipinos and Expats, with its reputable schools and hospitals, to add to its luxurious cosmopolitan environment.
BONIFACIO GLOBAL CITY
Also called “The Fort” or “BGC” by locals, this district which used to be part of the Philippine Army Camp now competes with Makati as a central business district. It boasts of the availability of flexible office spaces, and good proximity to lifestyle hubs which makes for an ideal working environment.
There is, however, a lack of transportation in this area, as it provides its own bus system. Jeepneys are generally limited to the outskirts of the area. Additionally, rent lease tends to be high here, to equal Makati’s high-end metropolitan vibe.
ORTIGAS BUSINESS CENTER
This commercial area borders Mandaluyong on one side and Pasig on the other, and runs along EDSA. An advantage that this business centre holds over its counterparts is that it has lower leasing rates, while still being able to provide the convenience of amenities, lifestyle hubs and a good choice of luxury residences .
It is best known as an ideal place for startups, and gains competitive edge in its high accessibility to public transportation.
It was large-scale commercial real estate projects like Filinvest City that catapulted this rural area into the competitive business district that it has quickly transformed into. Today, many residential, industrial, business and commercial establishments are sprawled across the district.
These four major business districts mentioned above are only a few of the best places to look for the ideal office location for you.
