ROCKWELL

Rockwell is a predominantly residential area adjacent to the Makati CBD. There are a number of gated communities on the outside of Rockwell which are made up of single or double storey houses and a number of high rise condominiums in the centre. Near the centre is also the powerplant mall. A small mall by comparison, and also quite expensive, however there are certain hard to find items that can be found here – perhaps Western luxury items might be a good term or imported goods. Fresh milk, good wine, quality Ray Ban sunglasses are all examples of produce that can be found in the mall.

The entire suburb is privately owned and there is literally a guard of nearly every corner. The guards carry automatic rifles as well and can be daunting for the initiated. It is all for the safety of the area however, and not meant to intimidate the residence, but rather just a show of strength.

 

There are a few restaurants and bars at the powerplant mall, but is not a place many people go out of their way to visit and generally cater for the residents or workers in the area. Compared to other areas of Metro Manila Rockwell is one of the richest and well to do suburbs.
