About Ortigas Center

Ortigas Center is Metro Manila's second most important Philippine financial and central business district after Makati City, and it is governed by Ortigas Center Association, Inc.  Ortigas is situated at the boundaries of Pasig City, Mandaluyong City, and Quezon City.   

Before, Ortigas Center began as the 4,033-hectare "Hacienda de Mandaloyon", an estate from the Augustinian Order.  In the following years, there were several changes of partners.  Then, on July 10, 1931, the company was incorporated “Ortigas, Madrigal y cia., S. en C.” as a limited partnership by shares (sociedad comanditaria por acciones).  

When Ortigas & Company acquired the estate, it was a virtual wasteland.  The vision of the management, headed by Atty. Francisco Ortigas, Jr., who was the President and Chairman at that time, turned it into a progressive industrial, commercial, and residential urban complex.  Today, Ortigas Center is very progressive.  It is now a home to many leading businesses, shopping malls, office, condominium skyscrapers, nightlife bars, restaurants, and other building complexes.
