ACI Inc. is the owner, developer and manager of Araneta City. Built and developed on a 35–hectare (90 acre) property right at the heart of Metro Manila, Araneta City is a mixed-use hub of retail, entertainment, residential, hospitality, and office developments that sees an estimated 1,000,000 visitors daily.
Araneta City straddles the crossroads of two major roadways, EDSA and Aurora Boulevard, giving visitors an unparalleled access to the North–South and East– West corridors of Metro Manila. It also provides commuters a strategic link between two major train systems, the MRT–3 and LRT–2. Today, the City has more than 2000 tenants in over 1.1 million square meters of shopping area. Its current count of 20,000 BPO employees is projected to rise to 100,000 in the next few years with eight hectares primed for high-tech office spaces for technology-based companies.
With the opening of Novotel Manila in the last quarter of 2015, the City now offers 400 hotel rooms to leisure-seekers, and business clientele that can also avail of its 1,000-capacity ballroom and other function rooms. Eleven out of 18 residential high- rise towers have now been built at the City. The Manhattan Residences will provide an estimated 9,000 units upon completion, which will be home to over 36,000 residents.
On the axis of all these developments is the 20,000 - seater Smart Araneta Coliseum, the country iconic sports and entertainment mecca. Serving attendees of local and international events are 7,000 parking spaces that include those in the Parking Garage South.
