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. The hotel would cease operations on December 31, 2015, 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. The lot it occupies is bounded by Ayala Avenue, EDSA, the inner streets of Ayala Center such as East Street and Courtyard Drive, and the pedestrianized access to Ayala station.
The Point-to-Point (P2P) Bus Terminal opened on July 18, 2022, with the mall being partially opened. The EDSA Carousel stop and additional bus bays then opened on November 18, 2022. On March 20, 2023, One Ayala PUV Terminal opened at the lower ground level.
The transportation hub is located at the Upper and Lower Ground Levels of the complex.
At the Upper Ground Level are the bus bays of city and point-to-point (P2P) buses, accessible through EDSA and Ayala Avenue, respectively. Three bus bays accessible through EDSA accommodate the southbound Ayala Station of the EDSA Carousel and the terminals and stops of other city buses (especially southbound), while the P2P Carousel lane accessible through Ayala Avenue accommodates the terminals and stops of P2P buses, electric jeepneys plying Circuit Makati, and taxis, as well as an Electric Vehicle (EV) Fast-Charging station. Bus bays have Tripko and Beep reloading stations, as well as food kiosks between the P2P Carousel and city bus lanes. A friendship mural is also located at the Upper Ground Level. On the other hand, at the Lower Ground Level is the One Ayala PUV Terminal, which has nine boarding gates and serves most traditional jeepney and UV Express routes coming from Ayala Center.
|One Ayala transportation hub services (as of July 2023)|
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.
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. Built at the podium of the complex, it has a gross leasable space of 54,700 m2 (589,000 sq ft). It features a Robinsons Supermarket branch at the Lower Ground Level and is expected to feature a trade hall with four function halls, al fresco dining at Levels 2 to 4 and a multi-purpose court at Level 5.
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). One Ayala Tower 1 (also known as the One Ayala West Tower) that is closer to EDSA is already operational, whereas One Ayala Tower 2 (also known as the One Ayala East Tower) is expected to top off in 2024. 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.
One Ayala will host a Seda Hotels branch and a condominium building.
Intended to be a flagship project, the Seda One Ayala will have 413 rooms. It is set to open in 2024.
One Ayala has a four-level basement parking beneath the mall. Accessible through Ayala Avenue, it opened on August 3, 2023.
