Forbes Town Center
One important landmark that has emerged in Bonifacio Global City is Forbes Town Center, a sprawling five-hectare township project featuring 12 residential towers that will house a total of more than 3,552 units upon completion. Forbes Town Center is adjacent to the Manila Polo Club, the Manila Golf and Country Club, and Forbes Park. What makes the township even more special is the stunning half-kilometer-long view of the nearby golf course, something that no other condominium in the country currently offers.
Forbes Town Road within the Center is a high-end retail strip with 37 restaurants and shops that cater to the diverse needs of residents of the community’s three Bellagio towers, the six towers of Forbeswood Heights and the two towers of Forbeswood Parklane.
One of the posh residential towers in the Center is the Eight Forbes Town Road Golf View Residences, a modern 53-story edifice made of blue curtain glass and steel and which offers intimate views of the adjacent golf course. Eight Forbes Town Road offers 16 different amenities in its seventh-level pleasure zone—an infinity pool, landscaped roof gardens, an outdoor spa, a shallow pool with water jets, a reflexology path, a tai chi station, and a playground for children.
The newest addition to Forbes Town Center is Burgos Circle, a leisure destination that caters to the younger, trendier crowd. The Burgos Circle has establishments that allow young professionals to grab a quick lunch during weekdays or have breakfast before or after their call center shifts.
Among all of Megaworld’s development projects in Metro Manila, the 50-hectare McKinley Hill is by far the biggest. Situated in Fort Bonifacio, the emerging center of metropolitan business, McKinley Hill has over 4,713 condominium units in 34 residential condominium buildings, 482 residential lots, and close to 300,000 square meters of office space spread across 17 different offices.
Perfectly abiding by Megaworld’s “live-work-play-learn-shop” development concept, McKinley Hill offers a complete line of residential and office facilities and amenities with single detached homes, townhouses, a mid-rise condominium, high-rise luxury residences, BPO office buildings, a Venetian-themed mall, and an events venue, all of which are in various stages of development. McKinley Hill also plays host to the British, South Korean, and Qatar embassies.
The McKinley Hill CyberPark is the community’s very own PEZA-accredited ecozone. Soon after its launch, the CyberPark rolled out One World Square, the ecozone’s very first BPO building with 11 stories and a huge 28,900 square meters of office space. A record of sorts, One World Square achieved full occupancy, with tenants that include big-name companies, in less than two years.
The 15-story Commerce and Industry Plaza, one of the bigger BPO hubs in McKinley Hill, features open-plan floors with uninterrupted office space of up to 2,000 square meters, perfect for multiple modular workspace layouts commonly found in BPO offices. The Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) has aptly set up its headquarters in the building.
The Venice is a residential project that captures its namesake’s romanticism and grandeur. The project’s main draw is the man-made Grand Canal, the first of its kind in the country, where residents and guests can enjoy rides in authentic gondolas steered by singing gondoliers while taking in the sights of reconstructed Venetian landmarks seen along the Canal’s waterway. Upon completion, The Venice will feature seven residential towers, each one resembling a fèrro – the gondola’s uniquely shaped iron head.
There are three international schools in the community that effectively bring to life McKinley Hill’s “live-work-play-learn-shop” development concept. These are the Chinese International School of Manila, the first English-Mandarin bilingual school in the country; the hospitality management school of Enderun Colleges, which is supported by the world-renowned Les Roches Swiss Hotel Management; and the Korean International School, the first Korean school in the country.
