Manuel M. Lopez (AMML) led the groundbreaking and lowering of a time capsule at the Lopez Group’s future headquarters at the Rockwell Center on April 26, 2012.
Present at the event were Rockwell Land president Nestor Padilla and other Lopez Group executives.
AMML, who also serves as chairman of Lopez Holdings Corporation and Rockwell Land, described the tower as another feather in the company’s cap. He noted that such a project enhances a company’s reputation and bolsters its track record for management and development.
In two years, all the Lopez companies will be housed in the 19-story Lopez Tower and Museum located close to the Ateneo Professional Schools, the Rockwell Club and Power Plant Mall, as well as the Makati central business district.
“Our staff and associates will enjoy working here in Rockwell Center, where you can literally cross the street to shop, or study, or work out, maybe get a massage, see a movie, or wine and dine afterhours. This is a premier community and the Lopez Group’s presence here will elevate its stature further,” AMML said.
OML noted that the Lopez Tower and Museum will have four pillars to represent the values of entrepreneurship, integrity, leadership and public service.
A two-story space has been set aside for the museum, which will display the collection of art it has amassed over the years.
Lopez Tower is expected to be completed by December 2014.
