SGV at 70: SGV Development Center over the years

The SGV Development Center (SGVDC) was inaugurated on 8 March 1978. Located along De la Rosa Street in Makati, the eight-story building housed the Management Services and Transfer divisions, and the Audit and Management Services training groups. The center had training rooms, a library, and computer, printing and publication facilities.

After the building was demolished in 1996, the Washington SyCip Development Center was re-established in 2003 at the 2/F of SGV I Building, and then renovated in 2012. In addition, the new SGV Development Center at the 3/F of STI Holdings Center was inaugurated on 7 November 2014. The Shang Grand Tower now sits on the land where the SGVDC used to stand.
