HISTORY

 

RCBC Plaza was the first office developed in the Makati Central Business District to be granted an IT-zone status by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority, an attached agency of the Department of Trade and Industry. It has been declared a Special Economic Zone.

As an IT-zoned vertical building, this means that qualified RCBC Plaza locators and tenants will be given a package of tax incentives designed to attract foreign investments in the areas of computer - and knowledge-based operations such as IT solutions providers, shared services, software development and engineering design, among others.

The RCBC Plaza, hailed as the finest and most prestigious business address in the Philippines, consists of two towers - Yuchengco Tower and Tower 2, a three-level podium and seven levels of basement parking with a total area of 250,000 square meters. Besides office space, it houses the Yuchengco Museum, the 450-seat Carlos P. Romulo auditorium, a chapel that can seat 150 people, banking chambers in both towers, a VIP lounge, a gym and health spa, and an open-air courtyard. Its technology is state-of-the-art and is at par with the world's best, featuring an invisible security system, the latest fire-protection system, fiber-optic telecommunications system, Chiller-type air conditioning system and a digitally-controlled and building automation system (BAS).
