Mandaluyong

The City of Mandaluyong (Filipino: Lungsod ng Mandaluyong) is one of the cities and municipalities that comprise Metro Manila in the Philippines. Located at the approximate geographical centre of Metro Manila, it is bordered on the west by the country’s capital, Manila, to the north by San Juan City, to the east by Quezon Cityand Pasig City, and by Makati City to the south. Its nicknames are “Tiger City of the Philippines”, “Metro Manila’s Heart”, and the “Shopping Mall Capital of the Philippines”.

Among the many attractions in the city is the western half of the Ortigas Center, one of the major centers of business and commerce in the metropolis (the eastern half is in Pasig City). Found within the Mandaluyong portion of the Ortigas Center [3] is the main headquarters of the Asian Development Bank,[4][5] Banco De Oro, and the headquarters of San Miguel Corporation, Southeast Asia’s largest food and beverage company. One of the most prominent pharmaceutical laboratories and factories, Unilab, is located here.[citation needed]

Economy

Mandaluyong is deemed as the “Tiger City” because of its notable number of shopping malls, entertainment hubs, offices, financial hubs, and hotels.

Commercial Activities

Typical of cities in metropolitan areas, Mandaluyong has its own share of commercial strips and a central business district. The former, consisting mostly of banks (Map ~ Financial Institutions), offices and service establishments, stretch along public transport routes thereby serving both local consumers and passers-by from the neighboring localities. Major commercial strips of the city include the stretch of Boni Avenue, Shaw Boulevard, Libertad-Sierra Madre area, Kalentong, San Francisco, part of Martinez, Sgt. Bumatay towards Barangka Drive and Pinatubo towards EDSA.

Industrial Activities

These activities are mostly concentrated within the EDSA-Shaw-Pioneer area and along Pasig River.

Although prominent in the manufacture of foods, medicines and laboratory equipment, these industries are gradually declining in number, opting to relocate in newly-developed industrial zones outside Metropolitan Manila.

In the Pasig River area, particularly in Barangays Namayan and Mabini J. Rizal, areas formerly industrial are now the sites for residential subdivisions and townhouses.

In the EDSA-Shaw-Pioneer area, the transformation is toward a more economically profitable and globally competitive commercial activity.
