Ortigas & Co.’s 85 years comes to fore this year in Greenhills Shopping Center’s Christmas on Display (COD). With the theme “One Life. One Story. One Fairytale.”, the annual yuletide spectacle highlights the premier property developer’s legacy of building great places for life.
The montage, which has become the traditional holiday go-to not only of Filipino families, but also of foreigners, and those coming from the provinces is made grander and more magical this year as Ortigas & Co. marks its 85th anniversary.
“It has always been Ortigas & Co.’s desire to enhance Filipinos’ lives. For the past 85 years, we have endeavored to design developments that evolve with Filipinos’ needs and make us an integral part of their life stories, including creating a Christmas wonderland that will bring families together and children will remember forever,” says Ortigas & Co. President and CEO Jaime Ysmael.
Building for life
This year’s COD focuses on Ortigas & Co.’s legacy, and how it has defined the Philippine urban landscape. The fascinating show highlights Ortigas & Co.’s destinations and developments that bring families and friends together, and enrich people’s experiences.
“Over the years, our developments Greenhills Shopping Center, Capitol Commons, Frontera Verde, and Circulo Verde have seen Filipinos share common experiences of work, leisure, and life. This COD is our gift to all, and our way to celebrate our milestone anniversary with everyone,” Ysmael adds.
Christmas in Greenhills Shopping Center
This year’s COD is Ortigas Malls’ 14th staging of the show and is its most memorable. According to Ortigas Malls Vice President & General Manager Renee Bacani, “This COD is truly special because it portrays our company’s legacy. Greenhills Shopping Center is proud to host this affair for the 14th year and we are excited to bring the Christmas cheer to our patrons through another heartwarming display.”
Among the first to witness Greenhills’ Christmas spectacle were 200 kids from the Department of Social Welfare and Development-San Juan and the children of the maintenance and janitorial staff of Greenhills Shopping Center. The children were also treated to a party filled with food, fun, and games before the program’s kickoff.
The Christmas on Display runs in Parking 1B, Greenhills Shopping Center, until January 1, 2017, for every 30 minutes from 6PM to 10PM.
Those looking for delectable food selections, entertainment, and bargain goods will find all in Greenhills Shopping Center, which remains a prime shopping destination every Christmas season. Along with the annual Christmas on Display, the Christmas Night Market will also run until January 1, 2017 from 6PM to 12MN.

Moving forward, Ortigas & Co. continues to aim to build developments where people can fulfill their aspirations and spend meaningful time with their loved ones.
“For sure, we intend to stay as part of people’s lives. And this year’s COD is our testament to our commitment to continue to bring the same quality and passion that has driven us for the past 85 years, as we aspire to build new stories going into the future,” Ysmael concludes.
