Daiichi holds topping-off rites for Finance Centre

When Daiichi Properties broke ground for The Finance Centre in Bonifacio Global City in June of 2014, it effectively gave a promise of building a world-class office building that will have modern yet sustainable and environment-friendly features.
Almost three years later, Daiichi Properties delivers on that promise of giving the local real estate industry one of the best office developments today with the recent topping-off rites for the award-winning The Finance Centre.
One of the leading office building developers in the Philippines, Daiichi Properties held the topping-off rites for the 42-story premium grade building last February 27.
The building will officially be completed in the second quarter of 2018.
The Finance Centre was designed by world-renowned architectural firm Gensler, which also designed the headquarters of Facebook, Airbnb and Uniqlo.
Located at the corner of 26th and 9th avenues in Bonifacio Global City, The Finance Centre features open spaces that aim to inspire creativity and collaboration — an expansive 1,700-square-meter plaza with water features, as well as a sky garden above its retail podium.
The building also has open, column-free floor layouts that give tenants the freedom to create their own optimal work environments based on the needs of their business.
“We made a promise at the start of The Finance Centre’s development that we will build a world-class building that the local real estate industry can be proud of,” said Charmaine Uy, senior vice president at Daiichi.
“To deliver on that promise, we saw to it that we strictly followed the design specifications of our partner Gensler as well as the directions of our structural engineers,” she added.
For this project, Daiichi Properties retained the services of New York-based Thornton Tomasetti and Makati-based Sy2 for structural engineering, using performance-based design principles.
Daiichi’s structural evaluation efforts include performance-based tests that cover not only seismic resilience but also structural resilience to wind, which is particularly critical to high-rise buildings in a country that is visited by no less than 20 typhoons a year.
“Our buildings are designed to be naturally resistant to both earthquakes and strong typhoons,” emphasizes Uy as she notes that Daiichi has been doing the structural tests even before the earthquake scare became widespread.
Testament to the building’s excellence, even before its completion, The Finance Centre already won the Five-Star Best Office Development given by the Asia Pacific Property Awards in 2016 — the third award that Daiichi Properties got for its office developments.
