Rockwell Center is a high-end mixed-use area in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. It is a project of Rockwell Land Corporation which is in turn owned by the Lopez Holdings Corporation. Rockwell Center was first developed in 1998 and is being expanded since 2012. The architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) carried out the design under the direction of former design partner Larry Oltmanns.[1] Its centerpiece, the Power Plant Mall, opened on December 26, 2000. The Rockwell Center includes office buildings, condominium towers, a law and business school and a shopping mall.

Location and vicinity[edit]

The Rockwell Center was constructed on a 15.5-hectare lot in Makati Poblacion previously occupied by a thermal plant operated by then 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.
