RCBC Plaza is a skyscraper complex primarily used for office space. It is owned and developed by RCBC Realty Corporation, a Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation subsidiary. The complex comprises two towers: the Yuchengco Tower and Tower II. Each tower has three zones: low rise, mid rise, and high rise. The typical floor area for the Yuchengco Tower ranges from 1,650 square meters in the low rise zone to 1,780 square meters in the high rise zone. The typical floor area for Tower II ranges from 1,670 square meters in the low rise zone to 1,830 square meters in the high rise zone.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP designed the complex in the postmodernist architectural style with W.V. Coscolluela and Associates. The towers are two quarter-oval structures perpendicular to each other, as seen from the top. Each tower has alternating horizontal bands of gray tiles and reflective glasses, with a recess containing gray columns on each of the tower’s lowest level just above the podium. The podium has a gray facade with several glass windows. It also includes an open area with a sculpture called “Spirit of EDSA,” which can be characterized as a battle tank surrounded by several people. The podium also has a smaller section with a conical structure that appears to be a third tower of some sort, which houses the Yuchengco Museum.

RCBC Plaza occupies the entire block enclosed by Ayala Avenue, Gil Puyat Avenue, H. V. Dela Costa Street, and Geronimo Street. To reach the complex, you can use the buses, jeepneys, or UV Express vehicles traversing either Ayala Avenue or Gil Puyat Avenue. If you’re using your own car, the entrance to the parking space is along Gil Puyat Avenue.
