Philippines’ tallest building will be a hotel
The tallest building in the Philippines is under construction. This will be the Eaton of Makati, which will rise on Makati Avenue, a 64-storey property consisting of both a five-star hotel and full-serviced residences.
When completed, The Eaton Makati will house 28 floors of the Holiday Inn Hotel, 20 floors of full serviced apartments, four floors of amenities, seven floors of residential suites and four floors of office spaces. For occupancy, the Eaton of Makati will initially depend on Holiday Inn’s international hotel booking system, Holidex, which centralises foreign guests’ bookings automatically to the Holiday Inn network and FITs, the biggest segment of Holiday Inn’s clientele.
Some units of the 20 floors earmarked as residential (full service apartment) units will be used to accommodate long-term guests. The Eaton of Makati will have separate grand lobbies for the hotel and for the residential suites with 15 high-speed elevators.
