Whether it was LEASED or given for free, the answer depends on who you ask...
If you ask those who live there, of course, they'll say the land was already given to them.

Right now, we can read some clues...
does anybody here know if there were houses that were recently demolished inside the former Fort Bonifacio (anywhere that is outside the original BGC)???

(I feel for them...
Government must provide housing to all soldiers...
All I'm saying is it's government land, and it will be developed by the BCDA in the future... whether I like it or not).

The FurnItalia showroom location is oh so ripe for an office tower especially given that current smallish structure there right now as seen in the pic is not really the best utilization of that space/lot. That FurnItalia showroom has really got to go and replaced by an office building/tower better suited for that area/location and in the same manner put a high end residential tower on that abandoned BeauFort Showroom by Burgos Circle. Anyway my opinion only of course.

Yup I like it too! I was told before that they (FurnItalia) are only leasing the space/building. What would be really nice is if FurnItalia showroom can actually be relocated in one of the spaces/structures along the Bonifacio High Street row such as EAST Block or WEST Block later down the line. Better foot traffic and exposure pa if FurnItalia is in BHS than in their current location I would imagine.

Well technically Taguig is part of MM.

Yes, BGC is Metro Manila or simply Manila.

Well theres a little misrepresentation of our banner photo today though. It says Manila, i expected the manila bay area or even manila cityhall or luneta. But that is totally not MANILA and not even taguig but just fort bonifacio. We dont want to give the wrong impression to the foreign readers of this forum.

For the nth time, Metro Manila is also known as Manila worldwide.

You can call the capital as National Capital Region (NCR), Metro Manila or simply Manila.

I agree with you with regards to your point about Manila, but not with BGC not being Taguig. Manila and Taguig have their own local governments and mayors, but BGC still falls under the jurisdiction of Taguig. So it would've been more apt to label the banner Taguig than Manila, or better yet "BGC, Taguig". Bonifacio Global City" would've also been a better tag because that would refer to the specific district (like Ortigas Center, Filinvest City or Ayala CBD) so that would've been ok. It's a lot less confusing that way and it's the correct way.

I mean I don't want to see them labeling Makati's skyline as Manila just because it's within the Metro. The same goes for the other skylines like BGC except when they're referring to Manila itself.

I can't believe you guys are arguing over this matter. NCR is represented as Manila in global perspective.

International School Manila

Unbuilt Design Award 1998
www.aiachicago.org



Quote:
Perkins & Will modeled the International School of Manila after a Spanish colonial monastery in central Manila. Two major elements make up the composition. A curved wall facing a busy boulevard contains classrooms. The second element is a rectilinear segment containing gymnasiums, libraries, auditoriums, and a multilevel "student street" along one edge. On the lower level, specialized classrooms and "teacher towers" tie the composition together and provide definition and separation for inward-looking courtyards. The jury noted that the school "makes a grand gesture with its large scale and its many pieces and programs."




Even if the original design wasn't followed exactly, it still turned out nice.

True but they simply could have put BGC or Taguig City instead of just Manila para walang reklamo pero since Manila ang nilagay eh understood nmn na yun ntin na majority ng foreigners refers ncr as Manila alone. Kahit sa probinsiya kung ttanungin mo mga nagbabalik-bakasyon na ngtratrabaho sa Cavite, Laguna sasabihin nagtratrabaho sa Manila. Basta Manila to so many already refers to ncr and to some extent GMA or Mega Manila...

Or Metropolitan Manila, the Metropolitan Manila Area, or the Metropolitan area of Manila.

It's taken from a "Global" perspective in this case, for Bonifacio Global City.

P.S. We are so not having this discussion again.

Yes, Makati is also Metropolitan Manila or just MANILA.
