Belton Place: where arts and business merge

As published in The Philippine Star on July 10, 2015


When we think of the best hubs for artists, executives and professionals in the BPO and creative industries, thoughts easily fall on the western part of Makati.


While the rest of the city has turned to the latest devices and novelties, this side of Makati has remained true to its soul. Along Chino Roces Ave. are a number of art galleries, studios and advertising offices that make for the creative, passionate side of Makati. Some restaurants in this area don’t just serve good food, but are also a testament to their owners’ artistry. Some features artsy and cozy interiors, while others exhibit paintings and art installations by the owners themselves and their friends. In the evening, these quaint restaurants and cafes turn into bistros, literary and musical retreats as art lovers flock to these places for poetry reading sessions and some jamming with up­and-coming musicians, even famous ones. And while it is just a short distance away from the hustle and bustle of the business district) West Makati’s distinct character nevertheless makes the locale captivating for anyone who chances upon it.


For a home that offers this vibrant mix of culture, Belton Place along Malugay St, a prime development by Eton Properties, is a perfect choice. Belton Place heeds the high demand for residential accommodation among executives who work in nearby corporations, students in top universities in the area as well as the creatives who prefer the vibe of the environment.

Just a stone’s throw away from this 39­storey development are top corporations, universities, hospital and malls among many others.
