6750

When it opened in 1992, 6750 Ayala Avenue became one of the most prestigious business addresses in Makati City. It is the only office tower in the Ayala Commercial Center and continues to house the offices of Procter and Gamble Philippines, Caltex Philippines and other multinational corporations. The ground level has a few retail spaces, currently occupied by luxury brands Bulgari, Escada and Louis Vuitton. Of course, it also has the ubiquitous Starbucks.

You took the picture from a nice angle and what looks like a nice time of day for lighting.

John said...

The lighting is definitely flattering for this building.

Jacob said...

And I'm sure that is where you do most of your shopping, right? Starbucks you can keep. As I commented on Frank's blog - yech!

Beautiful building and I like your composition very much!

Regina said...

Fantastic!

Beautiful building and great angle. You'll have to use it for a reflection shot one of these days.

All these towering buildings are beautiful. We sure don't have them in Salem.

AL said...

Just curious, but are you standing in the middle of the street when you took that? Amazing!

Great perspective of an impressive building. I think Italy is the only country in the world without Starbucks...

Like a Ziggurat.

I always wanted to work and live in the top floor of a skyscraper. As I got older and learned to hate people I got over that, LOL.

Lois said...

Very impressive building and a nice SkyWatch too!

I like the touch of pink in the sky. It's just barely reflected in the windows. I would love to work in an office like this. Although it's probably not all I dream it would be.

Nice view of the building.

How much is a regular cup of Starbucks coffee in Manila? I'm curious to see if the prices are the same around the world.

In the US, a medium cup of Starbuck drip coffee is about US$2.20. A medium Frappaccino is about US$4.50, I think.

The angle of the building is brilliant~! You have an intereting blog with good photos.

JM said...

Great perspective of this very good looking building.

Hilda said...

Al:
Of course not! ;)
I was on the sidewalk at the corner of Glorietta.

Ming:
I haven't had Starbucks in ages so I'm not sure about the prices anymore. I think a small regular coffee is about 100 pesos now, so $2.20 sounds right. I don't think the frap's double the price, but I have to check.

This is a jackpot Hilda. Greatly aimed!

I bet one day when I get a chance to go home, I'll be only an ant to this imposing building.

What a pretty building! Looks great against the sky.
