The Menarco Story
A multiple internationally-certified and multi-awarded, 32-storey office landmark, it is considered as the healthiest corporate building in Southeast Asia, being the first WELL Certified Gold™ building in the region. The tower is also LEED GOLD™ Certified, proof of Menarco’s commitment not only to people but to planet and the environment as well. At the onset of the Covid pandemic in 2020, Menarco Tower earned the much coveted WELL Health and Safety Rating™ from the IWBI which guaranteed peace of mind and safety to all its tenants and the entire building community. In December 2021, the building received its EDGE™ Advance Certification, the green building standard of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) for meeting stringent global standards in green building, sustainability and business practices. And in June 2022, Menarco Tower became the only corporate office in Asia to be awarded the IMMUNE RESILIENT AWARD™. This is the highest level certification from the international Healthy by Design Building Institute which guarantees pandemic and health threat preparedness. And in May 2023, Menarco Tower received its EDGE™ Zero Carbon certification, proof of the company’s commitment to sustainability and resiliency.
Building design and function have been globally recognized as well, as evidenced by its latest 2022 Top Office Architecture award from the prestigious Asia Pacific Property Awards, adding to the tower’s four property awards received in 2015 and 2016. With its contemporary, elegant exterior and clean, understated interiors, the tower can truly compete with the best in the world.
Most recently, the Menarco Vertical Museum was given the prestigious Best Use of Art Award by Philippine Tatler, recognizing its contribution to the upliftment the human experience in a physical space with the use of contemporary art.
With the Menarco Tower as proof of its ability to deliver on its vision, Menarco Development Corporation is truly leading the charge to develop healthy, human-centered spaces, as captured in its newly articulated purpose statement, “We Build Better”. New projects in the pipeline include mixed-use office, retail and residential developments in strategic areas in the city.
As Carmen perfectly puts it, “Our new purpose statement is our promise to always build better, so that the people we touch can breathe better, work better, play better and live better. Humanity deserves nothing less, right?”
