Exciting changes are underway at the Ayala Triangle Gardens
If you've noticed the beginnings of a new development rising at the northern tip of the Ayala Triangle Gardens, that's because Tower 2 and the refreshed Mandarin Oriental hotel are now in the works. Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) is developing Tower 2, a high-grade 38-story office tower and the five-star 22-story Mandarin Hotel, as well as a good mix of retail establishments and gathering spaces that all ALI developments are known for. Expected to be completed in 2020, Tower 2 will be part of a wider, greener Ayala Triangle Gardens, with 60 percent of the open space available for the public to enjoy, much as they do now and ever since Ayala Triangle became open to the public in 2009.
In keeping with ALI's progressive vision for Makati, the more than 70 trees that were affected by the new development have been balled out and replanted within other areas in the gardens and in other ALI developments. Life as park-goers know it would go on as Tower 2 gets constructed, with the park remaining as a hub for the lifestyle and fitness crowd who want to enjoy the benefits of an open-air garden without the inconvenience of leaving the city.
