An artsy home that is Citadines.

Ortigas Center, the financial and central business district located in Pasig, is Metro Manila's second most important business area after the Makati CBD. With an area of more than 100 hectares (250 acres), it is home to many shopping malls, offices, and condominium skyscrapers, other building complexes, nightlife bars and restaurants.

Aside from the Asian Development Bank compound, Ortigas Center is also the location of the Banco de Oro main office, and headquarters of San Miguel Corp., Jollibee Foods Corp., and the Philippine branch of HSBC.

Since Ortigas Center is ideally located near malls and the business hubs, an increasing large number of working travelers as well as tourists visiting the city opt to stay in this area. The newest player in the hospitality industry here is the Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila.

The Ascott Limited, an international serviced residence owner-operator, is set to open its first property in North Manila and its seventh in the Philippine cluster with Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila on July 11.

Towering in the vibrant Ortigas cityscape, this property is an ideal home for business and leisure travellers. Its well-thought-of interiors and vibrant design were done by interior design sisters Ivy and Cynthia Almario, which magnify the property's distinctive artsy vibe replete with splashes of lively colors, unique paintings, themed pictures, geometric accents and other works of art.

The artsy vibe is uniquely mixed with bio mimicry that showcases designs bearing elements of nature such as stones, grass, leaves and chartreuse colors. For a cohesive look, design pieces, including the hallway carpets and other accents are nature-inspired.

Citadines Millennium Ortigas is set to open on July 11.
