Manila Metropolis is a multi-centered Capital Region of the Philippines.

Did you know that there's at least 30 central business districts in Metro Manila alone? Yup, more than its interconnected cities, CBDs have been scattered like mushrooms in the metro for years and decades.

CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT

central business district (CBD) is the commercial and business center of a city. In larger cities, it is often synonymous with the city's "financial district".

Metro Manila is home to 15 Million people, as well as massive Central Business districts. In 1594, the creation of a Financial District centered in Binondo-Escolta area.

After the devastation of The Battle for the Liberation of Manila in February of 1945, the need of office space began due to reconstruction efforts.

This gave way to the first major CBD in the Philippines, the Makati Business District in 1950’s (from Binondo to Makati), which grew larger in the past 60 years.

As the metropolis expanded, more and more CBD were set up to cater the growing population and economy of the Metropolis. These CBDs include Ortigas Center and Alabang (1980’s), Bonifacio Global City (1995), and Manila Bay Area (2007).


As of now, there are 30 CBDs inside the 600 square kilometers of land within Metropolitan Manila. New CBDs such as Arca South, Bridgtowne, Eastwood City, Greenfield District, Ortigas East, Century City and many more start to shape Manila’s future skyline.

This list includes the Major Districts and secondary CBDs within Metropolitan Manila:
