Bonifacio Global City
Bonifacio Global City (also Fort Bonifacio) is a highly urbanized district in Taguig City, Metro Manila, Philippines that in recent years 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 Fort Bonifacio, Taguig. 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. The welcome combination of corporate offices, high-end residences and shopping malls, embassies, a world-class hospital, a science museum and a landscape strewn with Filipino art is the city’s heart and soul.
