Bonifacio Global City (BGC)

Bonifacio Global City, otherwise known as BGC, is one of the hottest real estate markets in the Philippines. Formerly a part of the main Philippine Army camp, it has quickly developed into a major financial and lifestyle district.

BGC is nestled between two major thoroughways: EDSA, the popular limited-access circumferential highway passing through 6 of Metro Manila’s 17 local government units, and Circumferential Road 5 or C-5 Road, the second most important transportation corridor  which passes through the cities of Makati, Marikina, Parañaque, Pasig, Quezon City and Valenzuela.

This location also houses several townships with BGC condos for sale, mainly

  • Bonifacio High Street, an outdoor commercial strip consisting of choice restaurants, concept pop-ups, high-end brand stores, and lifestyle hubs;

  • North Bonifacio, an up-and-coming business development that currently houses the 65-storey Grand Hyatt Manila, one of the tallest skyscrapers in the country;

  • Forbes Town Center, one of the first township communities in Bonifacio Global City featuring low-density developments; and

  • Uptown Bonifacio, 15-hectare property located in the North Fort Bonifacio featuring mixed-use business and commercial developments targeting middle-class to upper class markets.

One of BGC’s best features is its orderly bus commute system.Jeepney and UV Express routes are at the edges of BGC. People who work and/or live in BGC take advantage of its generous pedestrian-friendly roads and walkways to go to or from their destination. As a private development equipped with a CCTV system and private security, there is much respect to traffic rules and regulations. BGC is competing with the Makati Business District as the best place to claim and establish global, regional or national headquarters. It is currently home to the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE). Business Process Outsourcing companies like Accenture, Cognizant, Telus, and Infosys have their main offices in BGC.

So if you are looking for a condo for sale in Taguig, the best ones with great commute options is in BGC.

Local tip: Navigate BGC starting at the Market!Market mall for fine pearls and tiangge goodies, Serendra for some authentic Kapampangan cuisine at Abe, OOTD pictures at public installations in Bonifacio High Street, and a cold beer and chicken at Bugsy’s near Burgos Circle.
