  • Power Plant Mall is the centerpiece of Rockwell Center, a 15.5 hectare upscale mixed-use project in Makati City, Metro Manila. It is accessible by jeepney via J.P. Rizal Street. You can go to Rockwell from a far distant location either by LRT and MRT or if you're taking EDSA, you can get near it by bus.


    How to get to Rockwell from MRT-3

    The nearest MRT-3 Station to Rockwell Center is Guadalupe Station. From Guadalupe Station, walk downhill along EDSA, turning right onto the service road next to Guadalupe Commercial Center, until you reach J.P. Rizal Street, the road that passes along the edge of Pasig River. This is if you take the train from Taft Avenue. If you ride a train that comes from North Avenue Station, go down the station and walk downhill towards the edge of the Pasig River, turning left on the service road going to J.P. Rizal.

    Walk across J.P. Rizal towards the opposite side and near the edge of the river, and wait for a jeepney with "Paco Taft Herran" or "Paco Taft Bukid" sign. Pay minimum and ask driver to drop you off at Rockwell. It's near, approximately 1 kilometer from Guadalupe MRT Station. The jeepney from Guadalupe going to Paco passes under EDSA Guadalupe Bridge. Now, once the jeep pass the second time under a small bridge, you can alight at the next stop where you'll get to see Rockwell Center across J.P. Rizal.

    @ Levin Joy Marollano. Sakay lang po bus na "Baclaran" or "Alabang" ang sign sa harap at baba po sa Guadalupe. Sa kanto po ng EDSA at Ortigas. Pede din sakay ng MRT to Taft at baba Guadalupe. Sa Guadalupe punta kyo sa pagitan ng Jollibee at yun malaki Guadalupe Commercial Center. Abang po kyo ng jeep na ang sign ay "Pedro Gil Paco Taft" o "San Andress Bukid". Sabihin nyo sa driver ibaba po kyo ng Rockwell. Ingat po sa Guadalupe madami mandurukot ng cp lalo na sa pedestrian overpass. Sana po ay makatulong :)
