Is it good to see a picure of Manila the main city of "Philipinas". I've never seen a photograph of this city. Interesting, not only because in my city, Medellin-Colombia, exist a neighboor called Manila, but for the mix between big towers and buildings, moreover trees and green!

Makati has changed. The buildings gone taller and denser. Its still the central business district of Manila. Ortigas is no.2

Its 50/50. Ortigas got some nice scrapers but its not as iconic or as prime as Makati. The St. Francis Towers though can give Ortigas more character.

Here's how I see it

Makati=downtown
Ortigas=midtown
Manila=capital

Then again, there's also the up and coming Bonifacio Global City... It might creep up on both of them!

(hope you don't mind that I resized your pic @thomasian!)

BGC is emmerging but for now, it predominantly residential and BPO. Makati still has the banks and other business and so does Ortigas.

Plus I don't find BGC as pedestrian friendly as Makati or Ortigas. I just hope BGC does commit the same mistake as Santa Fe in Mexico City

There's the (rejected, hopefully revived) Shimao investment.... the country's tallest tower by Metrobank

Manila Times

Seventeen new office buildings in different stages of construction and planning are expected to meet the robust demand for office space in Bonifacio Global City in the next three years. Once completed, the 17 edifices will make available about 340,000 sqm of leasable space, complementing the existing fully occupied 76,000 or so sqm spread in four office buildings and on the second floor of Bonifacio High Street.

An indication of the growing attractions of this premium business district, Bonifacio Global City will have total office leasable space of more than 400,000 square meters by 2010.

According to Jun Bisnar, head for commercial operations of Fort Bonifacio Development Corp. (FBDC), “The high demand for office space in Bonifacio Global City is due to the fact that the business district is considered the natural extension of the financial district in Makati. It is near most of the headquarters of the top 100 corporations. At the same time, it offers a refreshing work environment.”

He adds that because of BGC’s proximity to Makati CBD, there is a tendency to attract the same superior labor quality and worker profile. The premier business district further has several access points, which contributes to the smooth flow of traffic in the area.

The existing office buildings enjoying 100 percent occupancy rates are the FBDC-owned Bonifacio Technology Center and the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corp. (HSBC) building, as well as the Net Group-owned Net One and Net Square structures.

Net Group has three more buildings being developed—the Net Cube, Net Quad and Net Plaza. Five other buildings which are under construction are the Chancery of Singapore, Fort Legend, Fort 26th, Total Corporate Center 1, and the HanJinPhil Philippine Headquarters.

An office building earmarked for BPO locators is also be developed by FBDC. Other office buildings that are in the pipeline are projects of Daiichi and ADVL Land Corp. Further, the corporate headquarters of the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE)—what is likely to be the crown jewel of Bonifacio Global City—is set to rise in the City Center. The PSE headquarters will serve as a unified trading floor for brokers now doing business in Pasig and Makati.

Multinationals and large companies like JP Morgan, Deutsche Knowledge Systems, GE Money, GE Philippines, Transnational Diversified Group and several technology-based firms such as Intel Philippines, Ericsson Philippines and Tetra Pak Philippines, among others, have chosen Bonifacio Global City as their new corporate address.


Bonifacio Global City, located in the progressive City of Taguig, has also emerged as a favored location of business process outsourcing (BPO) companies, which have snapped up allocated office spaces in Market! Market! Only 2,700 sqm of spaces is available for lease in the shopping complex. “We foresee that these remaining units will be taken up within the next two months,” says Bisnar.

Another attraction of BGC to IT firms is the presence of a special economic zone offering fiscal incentives to the locators. PEZA-registered buildings in BGC include the Bonifacio Technology Center and the Net Group edifices. Bonifacio Technology Center counts among its tenants IT and BPO firms such as call center Ventus, software providers NEC Telecom Software and Data Horizon, hospitality service provider Nex C, and facility provider Hatchasia.com.

The healthy mix of office, residential, and commercial establishments along with measures taken by FBDC to preserve the green areas of BGC contribute to the place’s prominence as a premier business district where one can indulge in one’s passion for work and other interests.
Hm... I'm curious! What did Santa Fe do? PM me if it's off topic here.
