ALTHOUGH Bonifacio Global City continues to be one of the top business districts in the country, it is also emerging as a popular residential site as more condominium projects are being built in the area in response to strong demand.
According to property listing site Hoppler.com.ph, people are opting to live in the BGC area because it offers a lifestyle with work-and-play balance.
It listed down the reasons why people should move to BGC, one of which is that BGC offers endless growth.
As one of the top business districts in Metro Manila, Hoppler dubbed BGC as the “home of passionate minds” as it is home to top local and multinational companies that can offer an individual numerous opportunities to grow as a professional.
Other than its business side, BGC also has a lot to offer in the leisure department. From housing deluxe international boutiques and popular stores where people can shop, to upscale restaurants where they can satisfy their food cravings, to even just taking a stroll in its well-lit streets, BGC allows its residents to relax after a stressful day of work.
It is also a place where exciting events are held such as fun runs, concerts and social gatherings and offers residents a fun night life as it houses some of the most popular exclusive clubs in the metro.
Hoppler noted that BGC is where some of the top international schools are located.
“BGC is where the best international schools and colleges are found. From multi-purpose halls to laboratories and academic curriculum to extracurricular activities, these educational institutions contribute to knowledge and character building,” the property listing site said.
It also noted that accessibility is one of the unspoken benefits of the area. This is because BGC offers its residents accessibility with its Eco-smart transportation system composed of shuttle buses and electric tricycles that do not emit noise and smoke to ensure a calmer and cleaner environment.
Hoppler also noted that another benefit from living in BGC is that it is flood-free.
“Most cities in the Philippines are located at sea level. BGC’s elevation is 111 ft. above the ground compared to the average 50 ft. of other areas in Metro Manila. Aside from that, it has an underground drainage detention structure that can contain 22 million liters of water,” the listing site said.
