Bonifacio Global City View

Bonifacio Global City or BGC is one of the three central business districts in the Philippines, along with Makati and the Ortigas Center, and is widely considered as the best place to do business in the Philippines. The area is home to various multinationals and local corporations, call centers, IT-BPO locators, and state-of-the-art developments including office buildings that offer private offices for lease.

It is close to Food Terminal Inc. (FTI), where numerous processed food manufacturers operate, and just a 30-minute drive away from NAIA or Ninoy Aquino International Airport (15 without traffic). McKinley Hill and West, mixed-use developments with quality office buildings and large malls, are also just a 10-minute commute away from BGC.

BGC is popular with startup companies because of the city’s wide selection of coworking spaces for rent. The coworking industry in the Philippines is most prominent within BGC, with multiple providers establishing their facilities within the CBD.
