The Galleon - LOCATION
The Galleon is located along ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City, near EDSA. The 7,000sqm site was used as a parking lot for decades and located just across the Asian Development Bank headquarters.
The Galleon also sits just 500 meters from the world-famous Wack-Wack Golf & Country Club. This location is safe for clean living and conducive for office workers, residents, and guests because the land was never used in other purposes other than as a parking area. Just south of the Galleon is the 4-lane Do?a Julia Vargas Avenue that will take you to C-5 Road (E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue); Meralco Avenue, and Pasig proper to the east; Ortigas Avenue to the north, and EDSA-Mandaluyong to the west.
The site sits on one of Pasig City’s highest elevations (44 meters above sea level) where flooding is so remote. Less than a kilometer northeast of The Galleon, you will find the Medical City Ortigas, while the Ayala Malls the 30th is nearby as well as SM Megamall, Starmall Edsa Cinema, and the Philippine Stock Exchange building.
Furthermore, east of The Galleon, right across Marikina River, you can find the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig, Rizal High School, Pasig Christian Academy, Pasig City Children’s Hospital, Pasig City Museum, Immaculate Conception Cathedral Pasig, the Pasig City Library, the Meralco Pasig Auxiliary Business Center, and the Pasig City Sports Center, among other key destinations in the city.
Office workers, clients, and businesses, and even future residents will have easy access to the Galleon as the site is reachable via various major thoroughfares. If you live here or conducting business, you are sure to reach any destination within Metro Manila smoothly and quickly. The C5 Road will let you too close to Makati to the southwest via Carlos P. Garcia Avenue and Kalayaan Avenue, in just a matter of minutes.
If you or your team don’t want to use these roads, you can always use the MRT trains as two main stations cross the district; Shaw Blvd. and Ortigas stations.
Furthermore, the Taguig’s BGC (Bonifacio Global City) is also not far away further south (a mere 15-minute drive from your new home). Additionally, if you are working in the Ortigas Center, C5 Road will take you straight up north in a quick 7 minutes as you reach Ortigas Avenue then turning left and drive another three minutes until you reach your office at the Ortigas Center. Cainta and Taytay in Rizal Province are also easily accessible through C5 Road via Ortigas Avenue Extension to the northeast.
