Perhaps no other city center in Metro Manila today excites urbanites more than Bonifacio Global City in Taguig—an expertly master-planned development setting the standard for modern, efficient, and world-class living in the Philippines.
BGC, as the district is more popularly known, is indeed a popular destination whether for live, work, or play. It is an urban nexus like no other, markedly different from the country's traditional central business districts that have long held prestige and status.
BGC sets itself apart by successfully melding state-of-the-art infrastructure with a traditional sensitivity to human needs—open spaces, pedestrian-friendly traffic, and a sense of community and neighborliness amidst a conveniently urban atmosphere.
It’s no wonder that the local real estate market is dominated by demand for condos in BGC, as both Filipino and foreigners alike are looking for a place to call home in this burgeoning business district.
BGC traces its history to a 25.78 square kilometer property straddling the districts of Makati, Taguig, and Pateros districts. The United States government acquired it during the American colonial period in the Philippines. Originally intended for military use, the property was developed as a camp and named Fort McKinley after the 25th president of the United States, William McKinley.
However, as the Philippines became a republic and secured independence from the United States in 1946, Fort McKinley was subsequently turned over to the Philippine government by 1949. It was then made into the headquarters of the Philippine Army in 1957 and was renamed Fort Bonifacio after the Filipino revolutionary hero Andres Bonifacio.
In 1995, the Bonifacio Land Development Corporation (BLDC) of the Metro Pacific group became the government agency Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) partner, redeveloping Fort Bonifacio into an urban center of the future. Despite the challenges posed by the Asian financial crisis of 1997, Fort Bonifacio's vision was carried through by the Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation (FBDC), a partnership between Ayala Land and Campos-led Evergreen Holdings that purchased a controlling interest in BLDC in 2003.
With BCDA and FBDC at the helm, the property was re-conceived and relaunched as BGC and is now nearing the fulfillment of its holistic masterplan as a premier business district in the Philippines.
BGC is primarily designed to be the new center of business, commerce, and industry. It also features holistic planning that enables comfortable living and meaningful recreational pursuits. As home to some of the most iconic office buildings in the Philippines, BGC also has the most distinctive luxury residential addresses, vibrant and dynamic shopping centers, and malls, engaging public spaces and socio-civic venues, including five-star hospitality and leisure establishments.
Its proximity to traditional central business districts of Makati and Ortigas enables it to be integrated into the existing business milieu and contribute to the further expansion of the nation’s economic activities. It also greatly helped decongest these earlier established business centers and provided more employment opportunities for Filipinos.
What is distinctive about BGC is its superblock grid formation—one of the few, if not the only master-planned township in the Philippines with an urban blueprint reminiscent of famous capitals in the world (i.e., New York). Such a design enables efficient traffic, optimum space planning, and more effective safety and security management. City dwellers can aspire for such a global lifestyle when looking for a condo for sale in Taguig so that they can be part of all this action.
BGC today stands as a successful testament to the power of thoughtful property development—enabling the evolution of a valuable piece of land from an insular military base to an exciting and engaging cosmopolis. As the home of passionate minds, BGC is more than a destination or location. It is a sanctuary that places people first and values positive human conditions of freedom, self-expression, and fulfillment.
Within the sprawling BGC masterplan are zones and areas that cater to different passions, interests, and lifestyles of the district’s inhabitants. Among its pioneering and defining developments are the residential communities of Ayala Land such as Serendra, and innovative Ayala Malls lifestyle concepts such as Bonifacio High Street. BGC is also known for ultra-luxurious and high-end high-rise vertical communities like East Gallery Place and The Suites at One Bonifacio High Street.
Alveo Land, Ayala Land’s brand for innovative, upscale, and modern condominium communities, provides some of the best condos in the equally cosmopolitan city center of BGC. Alveo communities that already make upwardly mobile living in BGC a reality include Two Serendra, Park Triangle Residences, Verve Residences, and High Street South. Alveo condos for sale in BGC not just make for a perfect abode but are high growth property investments.
Alveo is also innovating the Philippine business scene by developing world-class office buildings with a visually distinctive design that places BGC on the map of prime global business centers. These projects include High Street South Corporate Plaza, Park Triangle Corporate Plaza, and Alveo Park Triangle Tower. More than just providing office spaces, these developments are defined by a mixed-use nature and integrate commercial and lifestyle components to create a holistic working environment and support system.
Living in BGC is an experience like no other. Amid today’s busy urban pace, it affords the rare opportunity to express one’s passions every day genuinely.
In BGC, success is defined not just by living in comfort, convenience, and style but also by affirming one’s purpose and achieving personal goals. There is time not only for work but for individual pursuits and recreation.
In fact, one of the most visible testaments of BGC being a “home for passionate minds” is its vast display of public art. BGC values the role of creativity in daily life, reinforced by incorporating artworks in its varied open spaces and socio-civic areas within the community. From imposing landmark sculptures by some of the most renowned Filipino artists to colorful graffiti that speak of post-modern artistry, BGC embraces and welcomes such creative self-expression.
BGC also encourages a physically active lifestyle with its pedestrian-centric walkways and roadsides, ample public parks and open spaces, and event venues for sports activities and exercise. The lifestyle is again reminiscent of the independent, mobile lifestyle that is the norm in many city capitals worldwide.
This is what makes BGC such a welcoming location for today’s breed of global citizens—highly successful individuals and families from all over the country.
Calling BGC home is an opportunity to be part of a dynamic wave of progress that is sure to bring positive changes in the country. It is an inimitable lifestyle experience in the Philippines that comes closest to being in “a city that never sleeps”—a living and breathing urban hub that will secure the presence of the Philippines in the world map of cosmopolitan city centers.
