Developed by property developer, CDC Holdings, the milestone property is strategically located in the central business and commercial district of Ortigas.

Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila is just a stone’s throw away from Ortigas’ row of corporate establishments including the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Philippine Stock Exchange as well as health and lifestyle hubs such as malls, restaurants, and fitness centers. The new property is also easily accessible to other key areas in the metro like Makati City, San Juan, Taguig, and Quezon City.

Citadines Millenium Ortigas Manila has also incorporated energy-and water-saving features throughout the property to help reduce carbon footprint.
