The 34-storey edifice is the first to rise at the new Ortigas East, the property firm’s P50-billion redevelopment of the estate formerly known as Frontera Verde. The Glaston Tower is providing office spaces for tech start-ups and more established, traditional businesses such as consulting and trading companies, law firms, and financial corporations.
