The taxes are lower in this CBD compared to Makati CBD plus the infrastructure is superb.

For your future reference, it is called Philippine American Cemetery and Memorial. Yes, it is quiet and serene there.

Fort Bonifacio's masterplan is one of the best planned in South East Asia but right now, most of it's high-rises are residential. I saw more condos than office towers being built in the area.

Yeah, the demand is not much high for office spaces...but maybe call centers may change that trend. I wish the government will do a superb job on whatever they're building on that piece of land alloted for the "Government Center for Business"

The City Center forms the physical core of the Bonifacio Global City, and is essentially designed as a three-by-three matrix of high-tech offices and residential buildings, busting retail outlets and pedestrian-friendly roads and walkways. The grid approach ensures a city center that is easy to navigate.

The Retail Promenade
Encompassing the 29th Street is the Retail Promenade characterized by abundant landscaped areas. Its design concept is centered on a east-west central access with well-known brands and various activity pods. It offers retail at the ground level and offices at the second floor.

This pedestrian highway is a 40-meter wide, green, landscaped retail strip with a length of about 400 meters cutting across the city center. From fashion and beauty, health and wellness, home accessories & furnishings, sports lifestyle, anything is just a literal walk down the road. The vibrant social activity in the park shall be complimented by best match retail and food concepts. Here community life is celebrated in all its bustle and color.

The City Square Blocks
feature landscaped areas and parks. This is the place for various community activities, where people in Bonifacio Global City can come together. It is an ideal location for hotels, conference facilities and entertainment venues.

The Garden Square Blocks
offer mixed-use neighborhoods, each oriented towards a green landscaped park with informal play areas.

The Main Boulevard Blocks
mark the visual edge of the city center. The area is ideal for ground-level retail and public-oriented uses close to the transit center.

Allied Bank to put up P1-B residential condo in Global City
By Zinnia B. Dela Peña
The Philippine Star 07/21/2006


Allied Banking Corp., a banking concern of tobacco and beer magnate Lucio Tan, is building a P1-billion high-end residential condominium building within Bonifacio Global City in Taguig in partnership with a local property development firm.

The project, majority owned by Winville Development Corp. of Chinese businessman Berkley So, is expected to start construction in 2007 and is slated for completion by 2010.

Dubbed as Chateau De Noble, the building will have 40 stories.

Allied Bank provided the land while Winville will serve as arranger of the development of Chateau De Noble.

As such, Winville will pool funds from prospective investors to fund the project.

Winville legal counsel Raymundo Quiroz said a portion of the property is now owned by the company after shelling out a significant amount.

Quiroz said the money to invested by Chateau de Noble’s investors will be placed under an escrow account with Allied Bank — Winville’s trustee.

He said Allied Bank has also agreed to provide financing arrangements at market interest rates and credit term of 12 to 15 years.

Designed and masterplanned by international architectural company CCO Design Ltd. of Hong Kong and world-renowned WSP Group Hong Kong Ltd., Chateau de Noble’s unit will come in one, two or three bedrooms with engineered laminated flooring, built-in closets; bathrooms with bathtubs; first-class modular kitchen, built-in cook top, cabinets, and exhaust system; water heaters and split-type airconditioners; audio entry phone; emergency trigger systems; and a utility area.

"We are committed to bring investors value for their money, as the investments required for our units are very competitive and in fact are even lower than the others of the same class within or outside of the Bonifacio Global City," Quiroz said.

Existing residential buildings at the Bonifacio Global City include Bonifacio Ridge, One McKinley Place, Regent Parkway, Penhurst Parkplace, Pacific Plaza, and Essensa.

Ongoing residential projects on the other hand, include Kensington Place, Fairways Tower, South of Market, Forbestown, Fifth Avenue Place, and Serendra.

The Bonifacio Global City is fast becoming the burgeoning battleground for top developers such as Ayala Land Inc., Megaworld Corp., Robinsons Land Corp. Century Properties, G&W, and Philtown Properties (a subsidiary of RFM Corp.)

ALI’s developments include Market! Market!, a 10-hectare retail complex; Serendra, the biggest residential complex at 12 hectares boasting of 50 percent open space; and ALI’s office building projects with For Bonifacio Development Corp. (FBDC).

Of the 240 hectares comprising Bonifacio Global City, 137 hectares are owned and developed by FBDC. FBDC is 55 percent controlled by Bonifacio Land Corp., which is majority owned by Ayala Land Inc. and Evergreen Holdings Inc.

Proposed Fort Bonifacio Visitor Center

The Fort Bonifacio Visitor’s Center is envisioned to become an icon of FBDC’s mission statement, a symbol of the development’s promise, & a medium for expressing the qualities that would definitely set this city above the rest. The main function of the center is to communicate, and the message the structure conveys is a promising invitation to a pleasant future with the global city, well said.

The noticeably radical form of the structure emanates from its intention to first capture the attention of an audience before conveying a set of messages. The architecture then communicates through metaphors; with its spherical form implying global competitiveness, the suspended cigar-shaped structure alluding to a bridge to the future, and the structural suspension arches portraying portals to tomorrow’s global city. It is a structure that deserves a place within “the most exciting piece of real estate in the country.”

On the more practical side, the gallery is suspended so it may minimally disturb the earth and body of water below it, giving itself the smallest footprint possible. This makes the building truly Eco-friendly, as it would allow more room for ground vegetation, minimize water runoff, lessen the building’s dependence on the city sewage system, and facilitate the free movement of air.

Should the time come when this suspended structure must leave, it shall gracefully depart from its site, leaving only a minimal amount of scars upon the earth on which it once stood on. This principle of stilted building is really nothing new, as our forefathers have demonstrated this time and again through the immortal “bahay kubo.”

The structure is designed to transform into a dynamic light sculpture at night. Its facets are illuminated from below by wash luminaires fitted with dichroic filters that drench the unusual forms in various high-intensity hues. Different colors of light are cast by the fixtures in cycles, allowing the audience to see the building “in a different light” upon every glance. Fixtures focused on the arches & tension cables emphasize the finer sculptural elements & details. While the reflections of light on the pool magnify the separation between the ground plane and the suspended structure, luminaires submerged underwater project an interesting rippled pattern refracting onto the building’s under-surfaces.
