Size and Location: The Triangle Exchange has an area of 62.3 hectares that spans the North and East Triangles and is located at the southwestern portion of Triangle Park. It is bounded by EDSA on the south west, North Avenue on the northwest, Emporium District on the northeast and East Avenue on the southeast.
Accessibility: Three Metrorail Transit stations run along the EDSA portion of the District: Kamuning Station, Quezon Avenue Station and North Avenue Station. The District has the largest EDSA frontage.
Land Use and Design: The Triangle Exchange is envisioned to have the highest densities in Triangle Park. It is a high-traffic district with the highest land values. Its commercial (office and retail), residential and other land uses are fully integrated with EDSA's transit facilities, thus providing the best regional link and commuter access. It is seen to be the most active area of Triangle Park, transforming its daytime office and service environment into a dining and recreational center at night. Offices, shopping, recreation and transit-oriented residential developments are encouraged.
Sub-districts: The Triangle Exchange District is further sub-divided into several sub-districts: Transit sub-district because of the MRT Stations that line the area; Junction sub-district, because this is where North Avenue meets Mindanao Avenue; South district; Central sub-district is the area around the Triangle Exchange District Green and contains retail ground floor uses; Government Center sub-district is the area at the southernmost tip of the Triangle Exchange and served by the Kamuning MRT Station. It is envisioned to be the access point to national government agencies in the area. The area served by the Quezon Avenue Station, is the E sub-district because of the information technology locators in the area.
Densities & Floor area ratios: The Triangle Exchange among the five districts has the highest densities owing to its proximity to the EDSA corridor. Density, FAR and Land Blocks: FAR is 12 to 16. FARs are highest around the District Green at 16 and building heights up to 40 storeys, then as you go further go down to 14 and 12 with building heights of 24 storeys. Blocks range from approximately 50 meters in depth by 100 meters in length.
