Location: Taguig City, Metropolitan Manila, Philippines
Bonifacio Global City or BGC is undoubtedly showcasing an unparalleled and impressive development in terms of infrastructure and economic boom. For many times, that I have been visiting this place, I have been extremely enticed to take some pictures of it. It was one sunny and beautiful morning of the 31st of October 2016, that I made this intention a reality.
According to the online records of Wikipedia, BGC is a financial district in Taguig City, Metro Manila, Philippines. It is located 11 km (6.8 mi) south-east of the center of Manila in an area formerly disputed between the cities of Makati and Taguig as well as the municipality of Pateros. The area is currently under the de facto administration of the city of Taguig. In recent years, the district has experienced robust commercial growth through the sale of military land by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA). The entire district used to be the part of the main Philippine Army camp.
In addition to that, Wikipedia, has documented that in 1995, Bonifacio Land Development Corporation (BLDC) started planning a major urban development—Bonifacio Global City. BLDC made a successful bid to become BCDA's partner in the development of the district. The Ayala Corporation through Ayala Land, Inc., and Evergreen Holdings, Inc. of the Campos Group purchased a controlling stake in BLDC from Metro Pacific in 2003. BCDA and the two companies now control Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation, which oversees the master planning of Bonifacio Global City.
It is really fascinating to have a morning a walk in BGC as it is not that crowded most particularly here on its East side. With this, I am also excited to share all the random shots I took.
