MaCEA is moving to a new home! Soon. The vision of a new MaCEA
building— as gleaned in the architect’s drawing—is slowly but surely taking
concrete form, as it rises from the ground up at the southern corner of the Legazpi car park on Legazpi St., site of the Legazpi Village Sunday Market.
The building is scheduled for completion by November this year, which
means that the staff is likely to be spending Christmas 2017 in their new home.
The new building has two floors, the first to be occupied by a reception area and a boardroom, where the Board of Governors shall henceforth be converging for their monthly meetings.
The second floor will house the general manager’s office, the work stations
of the 10-man staff, a storage area, and a pantry. The building will have centralized air-conditioning and internet connection and ample parking for guests.
This is the fourth move of the Association offices in its 54-year history. Originally operating from a rented space on the third floor of the old Makati
Exchange Building on Ayala Avenue, it moved in 1974 to its own building at the compound of ACEA (Ayala Commercial Estate Association, MaCEA’s former name) on Amorsolo St. corner Tindalo St., in front of the Makati Medical Center. On its 30th year, 1993, MaCEA moved its offices to a
building at the Legazpi Mini Park (now Washington SyCip Park) on Legazpi St., Legazpi Village, where it remains to this day.
