Meralco Avenue is a north-south thoroughfare located in Ortigas Center in Pasig, Metro Manila, Philippines. It links Ortigas Avenue in the north and Shaw Boulevard in the south and borders the western edge of Valle Verde in Ugong. It is named for the Manila Electric Company, also known as Meralco, which is headquartered on the avenue's junction with Ortigas Avenue. Other notable businesses on Meralco Avenue include UnionBank Plaza, Metrowalk and the upcoming mixed-use development called Capitol Commons at the former Rizal Provincial Capitol lot on Meralco and Shaw Boulevard.[1]


The Renaissance Center along Meralco Avenue

Spanning 1.6 kilometers, the avenue begins at Shaw Boulevard near the oval rotunda and PhilSports Complex in barangays Oranbo and Kapitolyo in Pasig. It runs between the Capitol Commons development on the east side and a residential village and townhouses of San Antonio to the west. It curves slightly north and intersects with Capt. Henry Javier Street towards the Department of Education complex. A few hundred meters north, the avenue crosses Julia Vargas Avenue via a flyover then passes through the busy Ortigas Center business district on the west side and Metrowalk and several other retail establishments on the east. The avenue ends at Ortigas Avenue with the Meralco Building as a terminating vista.
