1950’s – 1960

Ayala Land saw the potential in a large, undeveloped tract of land known as Hacienda Makati.

Ayala Land then created a unique, master planned development, which has now evolved into the country’s premier business and financial district (MAKATI)

From an old mango orchard, Ayala Land saw a community that answers the need for quality homes in a suburban setting, giving rise to the Ayala Alabang Village, Alabang Town Center, and the Madrigal Business Park.

Recognizing the possibilities in the Visayas and Mindanao regions, Ayala Land, through its subsidiary, Cebu Holdings, transformed a golf course into the first business district in the Southern Philippines, the Cebu Business Park followed by the Asiatown IT Park.
