Asian Development Bank Avenue, commonly referred to as simply ADB Avenue, is a short north-south thoroughfare in Ortigas Center, eastern Metro Manila, Philippines. It is an eight-lane divided road connecting Ortigas Avenue in the north to Julia Vargas Avenue in the south. It was formerly part of San Miguel Avenue, named after food and beverage giant San Miguel Corporation that is headquartered on the junction with Julia Vargas. This section of San Miguel Ave. from Julia Vargas to Ortigas Ave. was renamed in 1991 after the Asian Development Bank moved from its old building on Roxas Boulevard (now occupied by the Department of Foreign Affairs) to its present 6.5-hectare headquarters on the avenue's junction with Guadix Drive.[1][2]

ADB Avenue and San Miguel Avenue form the eastern city limit of Mandaluyong and the western city limit of Pasig. North of Guadix Drive, the road enters Ugong Norte, Quezon City. It is also home to the Robinsons Galleria and The Podium shopping complexes.
