 The 35 hectares (86 acres) property where the Araneta Center is located was purchased by J.
Amado Araneta in 1952. The land stood between Highway 54 (now EDSA), Aurora Boulevard,
P. Tuazon Boulevard, and 15th Avenue. As of 1959, the area was remote and located in an area
designated for suburban mass housing and frequented by Hukbalahap rebels. The original
owner of the property was the Radio Company of America (RCA). Initially, Araneta has
purchased only 4 hectares (9.9 acres) of land from RCA and built his residence in 1953 which
would become known as "Bahay na Puti" (White House). It was in 1955 that Araneta
purchased the remaining 31 hectares (77 acres) from RCA.

Store, a well-known retailer established its first branch beyond Manila. Araneta's Progressive
Development Corporation (PDC) relocated its offices from Plaza Cervantes
in Binondo, Manila to the Araneta Enterprise Building along Aurora Avenue. PDC would be
tasked to develop the Araneta Coliseum.
