Shang Salcedo Place - Towers
Shang Salcedo Place is one of the latest developments by Shang Properties and as a 67 storey tower with an approximate height of 249.8 meters, is one of the tallest buildings in the country. Located in Makati the tower is ideally located in the heart of the Metro Manila Region beside other condos such as Pacific Plaza Condominium - within 474 m, Garden Towers - within 525 m and Three Central - within 631 m. Despite the many other residences in the area, Shang Salcedo Place boasts its own amenities for residents and offers some of the most luxurious accommodations.
The developer for Shang Salcedo Place, Shang Properties, is the development arm of the Philippines Kuok group who has international affiliates such as Kerry Properties and Shangri-La International Hotels and Resorts and so is well-known throughout the South Pacific region. Designed by Wong & Tung International Shang Salcedo Place provides a pleasurable urban haven within the center of Manila.
With the highest concentration of multi-nationals such as banks and corporations in the country, Makati is the Philippines financial center. Makati is one of the 16 cities that make up Metro Manila but it is ranked 17th most populated in the country and 41st most densely populated city in the world. Its population though is relatively small with a little less than 600,000 however, it is estimated that due to all the business sectors within the city that population increases to over 1.5 million during a working day when commuters come to work. This means that residents of Shang Salcedo Place are among the relatively small number of people that can both live and work in the city.
As well as being the financial center of the Philippines, Makati is also known for having Manila’s tallest buildings and is the best known shopping area in Metro Manila making it easily the most convenient place to live in Metro Manila, if not the whole of the Philippines.
The 67 floors of Shang Salcedo Place offer 749 residential units which, inspired by successful professionals, are all spacious and luxurious. There is a variety of options when choosing a residential unit that include:

The concept that the developers had with Shang Salcedo Place was to offer the growing number of successful professionals that are working in the Makati Central Business District (CBD) and surrounding CBDs, the opportunity for the luxurious lifestyles they deserve, without the hassle of commuting each day. Shang Properties and the Kuok group were ideal developers for this type of development as they, along with their affiliates are well known throughout the Philippines and the rest of South East Asia for their high quality, luxurious projects which are always known to be successful even before they are completed and the Shang Salcedo Place is no exception, offering top of the range luxurious living complete with first class amenities, all within the same complex. The fact that the residences are in one of the tallest buildings in the area and which is becoming a landmark in Makati; is just an added bonus.
Although these units may be out of the price range for many workers, they do offer the successful professionals that can afford them, the best in quality and luxury in a location that is convenient for both work and recreation.
