HistoryEdit

The construction of the PSE Tower was originally planned in 2004, but hurdles such as location, naming rights, and the building's design put this plan on hold until 2008, when the building became part of the One Bonifacio High Street Project, a mixed-use development in BGC,[6] costing 30 billion overall.[7]

Groundbreaking was held in 2012, and it was topped off in 2017, before being opened in early 2018.[8]

Trading FloorEdit

Smaller than the previous trading floors, as trades became more computerized, the PSE Tower has a unified trading floor from both traders of the Ayala Tower One in the Makati Central Business District and the Philippine Stock Exchange Centre in Ortigas Center, Pasig.

MuseumEdit

There is a planned museum to look back at the history of the Philippine Stock Exchange.[9]

RetailEdit

It will house retail shops in the mezzanine and ground floors.[9]
