It was in 2003 when real estate developers converted Fort McKinley into a world-class business center and residential community that we now know as Bonifacio Global City or BGC.
As one of the newest business districts in Metro Manila, Bonifacio Global City has been the migration choice for companies who wish to replace their old office, expand, and provide a better work environment for their employees.
Here’s why BGC is the best location to find an office space for rent.

1. BGC is the real center of Metro Manila
BGC is strategically located in the middle of the metro, between EDSA and C-5, two major highways in Metro Manila. It has seven major access points including the Kalayaan Flyover, ED SA, C-5 Highway, Kalayaan Avenue, McKinley Road, Villamor Airbase, and Lawton Avenue.
From BGC, you can go to other main destinations like Makati, Pasig, Paranaque, Pasay, Muntinlupa, and Pateros. It’s also near the NAIA airport terminals.
2. More affordable office space rates
According to the Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) 2015 property market update, renting a premium office space is cheaper in BGC at Php850 per sqm versus Makati’s Php1,000 per sqm approximately.
The buildings within BGC are also equipped with variable refrigerant flow (VRF) air-conditioning system technology that helps businesses save on operational and maintenance costs. Tenants can turn their air-conditioners on and off, so you only need to pay for your actual usage.
Male urinals are also waterless, further saving on property maintenance costs.
3. Newer buildings
Bonifacio Land Development Corporation started their masterful urban planning development for BGC in 2003, so the oldest buildings are just around ten years old.
More developers have since been building office spaces in BGC, giving rise to new buildings that boast state-of-the-art engineering and design. As such, there are low risks of having high operational and maintenance expenses.
4. Everything is within walking distance
BGC is a perfect example of a Hippodamian Plan, with its masterful urban planning and development that combines residential and commercial properties within its area.
Schools, offices, commercial centers, and public parks are just a few steps away, offering a level of accessibility that’s hard to find.
5. BGC promotes work-life balance
BGC is not as crowded as other central business districts, so it’s not as congested or stressful. The streets are also cluttered with modern art installations to showcase Filipino talents.
If you want a healthy work-life balance for you and your employees, then Bonifacio Global City is perfect for you, as you can relax and enjoy the area after work. As soon as you step out of the office, you can dine at the best restaurants in the metro or browse around the mall of your choice.
You can also dive into various sports opportunities such as trapeze flying. More dining, social, and fitness establishments are built in the area to fuel the needs of professionals for a healthy work-life balance.
6. Buildings are tailor-fit for large companies
Bonifacio Global City boasts of wide, open spaces that businesses can take advantage of. Its open space enables professionals to harness their creativity and come up with brilliant ideas while enjoying the advanced technological features of their office.
Because the buildings are new and modern, they’re set up with the latest engineering and architectural technologies that are perfect for large companies and enterprises. You don’t need to spend too much on renovating the interiors to accommodate your IT infrastructure needs.
Companies also have a chance to maximize their office layout and employee productivity. Wide staircases and a good number of elevators help promote quick movement of people, especially during critical hours.
If you’re looking for the perfect location in Metro Manila for your company headquarters, look no further than Bonifacio Global City. BGC has redefined the way people live and work, making it the perfect choice for both startup companies and large enterprises.
