One Ayala is an under construction mixed-use development developed by Ayala Land located at Ayala Center in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. The development is located across Glorietta mall and occupies the former InterContinental Manila and EDSA Carpark sites. One Ayala aims to combine retail, hotel, and office facilities in a single contiguous space. Construction began in 2016 with the demolition of InterContinental Manila and EDSA Carpark and parts of the development opened in 2022.

One Ayala occupies the site where the InterContinental Manila hotel and EDSA Carpark once stood. The hotel was planned to close around 2014, where plans to build a mixed-use development in its place was also publicized. It was envisioned as part of Ayala Land's ₱65-billion redevelopment of the Makati Central Business District.[1] The hotel would cease operations on December 31, 2015,[2] and was demolished.

The mixed used development would be named after its address 1 Ayala Avenue. It is a 390,000 m2 (4,200,000 sq ft) transport-oriented development which features two office towers, a condominium-for-lease building, a hotel, and a five-story 54,700 m2 (589,000 sq ft) mall and transportation hub, seamlessly integrating to existing developments within the area.[3]

The Point-to-Point (P2P) Bus Terminal opened on July 18, 2022, with the mall being partially opened.[4] The EDSA Carousel stop and additional bus bays then opened on November 18, 2022.[5] On March 20, 2023, One Ayala PUV Terminal opened at the lower ground level.[6]


Mall and transport hub

The transport hub is located at the Upper and Lower Ground Levels of the complex. At the Upper Ground Level are the southbound Ayala Station of the EDSA Carousel and the terminals and stops of other southbound city buses to southern Metro Manila and the Southern Luzon provinces of Laguna and Cavite, both accessible through EDSA, as well as bus stops and terminals of P2P buses going to different parts of Metro Manila (including the Ninoy Aquino International Airport), Laguna, Cavite and Rizal and the southern terminal of electric jeepneys plying Circuit Makati at the Ayala Avenue side of the development.[7] An Electric Vehicle (EV) Fast-Charging station and a friendship mural are also located at the Upper Ground Level.[8] At the Lower Ground Level is the One Ayala PUV Terminal, which serves most traditional jeepney and UV Express routes coming from Ayala Center.[9][10][11]

The Level 2 walkways and bridges connect the complex to the McKinley Exchange Corporate Center where the EDSA-Ayala terminal of BGC Bus is located, the northbound Ayala Station of the EDSA Carousel situated beside the building, a Shell gas station along McKinley Road, and to the Ayala station of the MRT Line 3. Two more walkways will connect the complex to SM Makati and to Glorietta, respectively.[12]

Within the transport hub is a five-storey shopping mall managed by Ayala Malls, which is set to fully open in the fourth quarter of 2023.[9] Built at the podium of the complex, it has a gross leasable space of 54,700 m2 (589,000 sq ft).[12] It is expected to feature a trade hall with four function halls, al fresco dining at Levels 2 to 4, a multi-purpose court at Level 5, and a Robinsons Supermarket branch.[13][14][3]

Office towers

Not to be confused with Ayala Tower One.

The One Ayala Towers 1 & 2, with 21 and 29 floors, respectively, are PEZA-registered office buildings located at the Ayala Avenue side of the development, with a combined space of 85,000 m2 (910,000 sq ft).[15] One Ayala Tower 1 (also known as the One Ayala West Tower)[16] is already operational, whereas One Ayala Tower 2 (also known as the One Ayala East Tower)[17] is expected to top off in 2024.[9] One of its major tenants is the Philippine headquarters of Microsoft, which moved from its 6750 Ayala Avenue space to One Ayala Tower 1 in 2022.[18][19]

Hotel and condominium

One Ayala will host a Seda Hotels branch and a condominium building.[15]

Intended to be a flagship project, the Seda One Ayala will have 413 rooms.[13][20] It is set to open in 2024.[21]


In 2017, One Ayala was shortlisted out of 400 entries from 68 countries at the 2017 World Architecture Festival.[22][23][24] One Ayala BPO Towers 1 and 2 Projects won the High-Rise Structures Category in the 2022 Philippines Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards.[25] It won the 2022 People’s Choice Award at the 8th Annual American Concrete Institutute Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards. The project was nominated by the ACI Philippines Chapter and entered in the high-rise structures category.[26]
