Whether the search is for prime business headquarters or elegant, nurturing living spaces, it’s easy to find the worthiest choices in Makati. Rising at the corner of Dela Rosa and VA. Rufino streets are 41 storeys filled with such superior yet practical choices ­ Eton Tower Makati. Built by Eton Properties, the real estate arm of the Lucio Tan Group of Companies, the development merges the worlds of profitable business, rewarding home fife, and exciting lifestyle in one exceptional address. Imagine walking to and from meetings (or meet­ups with friends), passing through iconic design elements and unique features, then coming home or settling into an office that offers a view of the gorgeous urban skyline; or walking around a three­storey tower garden where trees and a sea of green are brought skyward, providing a nourishing space for mind and spirit amidst the busy industry of Makati. Eton Tower Makati’s four divisions give its tenants and dwellers these gifts and so much more.


“The first two floors serve as a commercial and retail center, presenting an exceptional mix of shopping, dining, and other recreational choices,” says Martha Herrera, AVP for Marketing, PR and Corporate Communications, Eton Properties. “The high­rise is also the first to have direct access to Dela Rosa’s elevated walkway, making it easier for tenants to reach their preferred bars, restaurants, fitness centers, malls, and other favorite and important Makati destinations such as hospitals, clinics, and churches…even on foot!”

Mere steps away from Ayala Avenue, these units provide organizations quality Headquarters that give them the space they need to go big without spending as much, all while also providing lodging for those extra busy work weeks. Start­up ventures, outsourced services, professional practices, independent firms, and corporate office branches can choose among the studio, one­bedroom, or two­bedroom configurations found on the 14th to the 22nd floors, as well as make use of the dedicated business center for bigger meetings, conferences, and seminars. The Tower also offers them complete office support requirements with power back­up, options for phone and data lines, devoted reception area and elevator.


Those who wish to own executive residences in the country’s model city can find in the Tower an urban oasis uncommon in high­rise city living. Each of the modern and spacious studio, one­ and two­bedroom units from the 23rd floor to the second penthouse level was built with residents’ breathing room in mind. Minimalist themes preside, outfitting the spaces in classic, neutral tones and streamlined tile and metal fixtures and other chic, timeless motifs (the same aesthetic applies to the exclusive residential lobby floor). Occupants can enjoy adorning their spaces as they see fit and truly making it their little piece of the world in Makati. They also have access to swimming pools, jogging paths, a gym, and a function room.


It’s a small world, but big on experience


What also sets the Tower apart from other high­rises in bustling Makati is The Mini Suites. Ever needed to rest badly after a hard day’s work, but dreading hours of traffic on the way home? Expecting consequent 12­hour or longer work days because of too many customers? Raring to impress the foreign client or boss from abroad with tasteful accommodation? The Mini Suites, Hong Kong’s trendsetting minimalist , hotel brand comes to Manila, offering it a rewarding and revitalizing stay minus the five­star price tag.


Taking design and style inspiration from Hong Kong’s Mini Hotel, The Mini Suites takes over floors six to 12 of Eton Tower Makati, offering 368 single or double rooms and 28 family rooms. Frequent and unfussy business travelers can make this their home away from home and enjoy the perks that come with staying here ­ access to Makati’s more cosmopolitan charms, cultural and historical attractions within reach, and proximity to major business and commercial destinations as well as other points of Metro Manila.


While known for offering great value­for­money, The Mini Suites does not scrimp on what matters most to its customers. To better serve its tenants, there is a gym, medical clinic, restaurant, meeting room, business center facilities, non­smoking areas, parking lots, housekeeping services, and front­desk assistance. Wi­fi is also free in all rooms and public areas.
