MANILA | Global City | U/C

*****>>>"""GLOBALCITY,metromanila" masterplan"""<<<******

thefort map:



Located within Metro Manila adjacent to Manila’s Central Business District of Makati, this 246 hectare project is the first phase of an over plan to privatize a 530-hectare military base. The project concept is to develop a long term strategy to implement a phased development comprised of 138 million square feet of mixed-use commerical, retail, residential, and institutional facilities. The project is envisioned as a self-contained state-of-the-art community incorporating international standard public (above and below grade rail sytems), infrastructure and telecommunications system required for an “intelligent city.”


***hirs the masterplan***

SECTION 5. ARCHITECTURE AND URBAN DESIGN

The objective in drawing up Design Standards and Guidelines is to
encourage the creation of a visually interesting and stimulating
environment, with varied architectural forms and a level of detail that constantly delights occupants and visitors alike.
5.1 BUILDING CHARACTER
5.1.1 Building character is created by use of a range of exterior
visual patterns expressed through cornices, columns, glazing and
variations in massing, colors, texture, and materials, etc. In
identifying a particular character for a building, it is important that
facades should employ different but related architectural elements so
as to create harmony but avoid repetition and monotony.
5.1.2 The expression of building character should include horizontal
and vertical banding and rhythm; lintel, cornice and molding and the
organization of glazing, etc. Comparable and compatible design
details should be employed on all sides of the building. Vernacular
architecture is encouraged to reflect the culture of the Philippines. In
addition, the design of a building should respond to the local climate
in both its overall form and materials used.
5.2 BUILDING MATERIALS
5.2.1 Buildings and other improvements, including landscaping,
lighting and signage must be consistent with and blend with the
character of the particular local environment in which they are
located.
5.2.2 Environment-friendly materials shall be used for all the
buildings. External reflective glass should be clear with a maximum
outdoor reflectance of 20% and the shading co-efficient of 0.3 or
anything with an equivalent performance in terms of reflectivity and
energy efficiency.
5.2.3 The external finish materials of any building constructed on the
lot shall be capable of easy maintenance and shall be of such color,
type and materials, as shall be permitted in writing by the Declarant.
5.2.4 The actual specific minimum construction(s) cost of buildings
may be determined by the Declarant in supplemental declarations to
these Design Standards and Guidelines that it may issue from time to
time.
5.3 FAÇADE
5.3.1 All building walls, including parking structures, shall be
designed with sufficient architectural details as to create identity
while still in harmony with the buildings/developments in immediate
vicinity.
5.3.2 Buildings should provide for a hierarchy of horizontal and
vertical expression and patterns that should relate to the particular
form and proportion of a building. The purpose of detailing is to
create consistency among the building frontage and other
architectural features, such as the building entrance, corner, and
variation in setback, etc.
5.3.3 The main entrance to a building should be clearly defined by its
size and form as well as in the use of colors, texture, materials and
lighting.
5.3.4 Relentless grids and "eggcrate" fenestration shall be avoided.
5.3.5 Balconies are allowed and encouraged.
5.3.6 To preserve the serenity and “green character” of the
University Park, the following guidelines apply to all buildings:
a. All plumbing and other pipeworks of any building constructed on
the lot shall be embedded or concealed accordingly. For gas pipes,
concealment should provide for free vent.
b. Utilities and equipment on roofs must be visually screened from
top and sides with appropriate treatments that conform with the
building design.
c. Vehicles in parking structures shall not be visible from both the top
and the sides. Open/transparent areas should not exceed 50% of the
parking structure openings.
d. Retail outlets shall not be visible from any public road. Within the
building where such outlet(s) are located, unifying elements with
respect to signage, graphics, awning and lighting etc. should be
adopted.

Actually it is developing and changing. More condominiums are under construction, educational institutions are already in place like International School Manila, British School Manila, Manila Japanese School just to name a few. A 16 story medical center is already under construction, the St. Lukes Medical Center. Retail/Entertainment/Shopping are already in place and more to come.

The view on those condominiums of the Philippine American Memorial and Cemetery is actually nice, calming and serene with those magnificent trees and neatly lined crosses. The memorial is one of its kind, the only American Battle Monument in the whole of Asia.

The best part of the Global City is the management team of Ayala/Campos. The Ayalas were the ones responsible in turning a vast swampland into the premiere financial district of Makati in the Philippines. They've got the experience and knowledge and they envisioned Fort Bonifacio to be the natural extension of Makati.

GLOBALCITY


A team of international consultants, tasked to design a world-class city of the future, put together the best elements in urban design, site planning, zoning, density management, pedestrian systems, infrastructure and aesthetic guidelines. The result was Bonifacio Global City's award-winning master plan.

Predominantly zoned as Mixed-use, Bonifacio Global City allows a wide range of possible uses, thereby providing lot owners with great flexibility. At the same time, specific restrictions are in place to standardize the developments and to protect the order, value and attractiveness of the City.

One such restriction is the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) scheme, which imposes a limit on the density allowed on each lot. This ensures that utilities are adequate to service the area and prevents over-congestion in the future.

Although Bonifacio Global City's original masterplan has been adopted under the new Ayala-Campos management, it is undergoing continuous review, with further refinements made to better serve the needs of today's market.

............................................................


Bonifacio Global City's utilities and infrastructure are probably the most modern and of the highest standards in the country. This assures a convenient and worry-free environment. To preserve the City's visual appeal, all utilities are laid underground.

Flooding is virtually non-existent in Bonifacio Global City. This is because it is served by country's largest private underground drainage detention structure. Twelve meters deep, the structure is capable of holding 22 million liters of water and releasing the same under controlled conditions.

Providing for cutting-edge information and communication technology, Bonifacio Global City is equipped with an integrated 48-core single mode fiber optic cable network designed by the world-renowned telecommunications consultants Ove Arup and Partners. This broadband superhighway supports a wide range of telephone, video and data applications.

Water pressure is strong and continuous in Bonifacio Global City. The state-of-the-art water and sewage system is managed by a joint venture with Veolia Water (formerly Vivendi), known for its international expertise in water operations. Water reservoirs with a combined capacity of over 18,000 cubic meters assure residents of water supply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Water quality is guaranteed to meet the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water. Meanwhile, the City's waste water is treated at a central sewage treatment plant located outside the City. The treatment plant complies with all national environmental standards.

A first in the Philippines, gas is distributed through an underground piping system managed by Pilipinas Shell. Patterned after international gas systems, it aims to provide residents with greater convenience.

Also underground are the electric power lines. Continuous supply of electric power is provided by MERALCO. As the population grows, sub-stations will eventually be built to service the City's growing power requirements.

Wow that looks fantastic - and I thought Birminghams Eastside was big at 180 hectares. This will be a very worthwhile project.
