Bonifacio Global City McKinley Hill
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.
Several other BPO offices followed suit, such as Two World Square and Three World Square which boast of the same scalable layout that made their predecessor a huge success. The 18 and 20 Upper McKinley Road buildings also offer BPO companies prime office spaces in two 10-story buildings that offer a total of 17,142 square meters of space. The 8 Park Avenue, in turn, is composed of two six-story towers each offering 10,800 meters of office space. With 8 Park Avenue, BPO companies are given the option to lease the whole structure thus easing the strain on their operating costs.
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 other residential projects in McKinley Hill, like the upscale McKinley Hill Village, the Spanish-Mediterranean-inspired McKinley Garden Villas, the Stamford Executive Residences, the Italian-themed Tuscany, and the affordable yet luxurious Woodridge Residences, which was designed for the more cost-conscious call center employees working in the area. The three-tower Morgan Suites Executive Residences, in turn, was designed for no-nonsense executives with its executive studios and one-bedroom units that are perfect for busy professionals.
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.
The attention of a traveller, should be particularly turned, in the first place, to the various works of Nature, to mark the distinctions of the climates he may explore, and to offer such useful observations on the different productions as may occur. William Bartram
