The Eugenio Lopez, Jr. Communications Center (ELJCC) is a high-end 15-storey building with three basements-level parking areas. It occupies 10,000 m2 of land area and it has a 101,608.32 m2 of gross floor area. It was originally constructed in 2000 and is named after the late Eugenio Lopez, Jr. The ground floor level is a retail area, 2nd to 4th floors are studios and technical rooms, 5th to 12th floors are corporate offices while 13th to 15th floors are the executive offices. On 4 November 2010, a date which would have been Geny Lopez' 82nd birthday, Philippine President Noynoy Aquino and other politicians participated in the building's dedication ceremony. ABS-CBN Film Archives, the cinema library of ABS-CBN, which the Philippine Inquirer describes as the "de facto National Archives" for the cinema of the Philippines, has been located in the basement of ELJCC since 2003. Out of the estimated 8,000 films created since the birth of the Philippine cinema industry, an estimated 5,000 have been lost; of the remaining 3,000, ELJCC holds 2,500 of the total.

The building is listed as an approved IT Center by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority, making export-oriented companies located therein eligible for temporary tax holiday, permanent reduced rate of corporate income tax, and other incentives. It gained this approval in February 2003; however ABS-CBN itself does not receive PEZA tax benefit from this status.
