Location and Vicinity
The Rockwell Center was constructed on a 15.5-hectare lot previously occupied used as a thermal plant operated by the Lopez-owned Manila Electric Railroad and Light Company until its closure in 1994. The lot is bounded by J.P. Rizal Avenue to the north, where it faces the Pasig River, Estrella Street to the east, Rockwell Drive and Amapola Street to the south, and R. Palma Street to the west. Marking the expansion of Rockwell Center will be The Proscenium at Rockwell, a 3.6 hectare mixed-used development which will stand in the property formerly known as the Colgate-Palmolive Philippines Headquarters.
Rockwell Center began its construction in 1998. The architectural firm Skidmore, Owings, Merril (SOM) carried out the design under the direction of former Design Partner Larry Oltmanns. Its centerpiece, the Power Plant Mall, opened in December 2000.
The Rockwell Center includes office buildings, condominium towers, a law and business school and a shopping mall.
