As the most recent addition to Manila's residential areas, Bonifacio Global City (commonly known as the Fort due to its military past) has developed real depth and variety, fast becoming Manila's area of choice for executives and families. Currently under the jurisdiction of the city of Taguig, it hosts an array of businesses including Accenture, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Fujitsu Corporation, HP, Ericsson and TetraPak have decided to make BGC their new home and, as a result, a wide variety of bars, restaurants and other local businesses have sprung up to give the area its own culture as the cutting edge of culinary and clubbing experiences.
Common amenities are close at hand anchored by major shopping malls at Market! Market! and the impressive SM Aura. Outside Market! Market! fresh flowers, fruit and organic vegetables are available from local vendors in a farmer’s market setting. There is an extensive collection of restaurants, boutiques and shops that extend down Bonifacio High Street, with the nearby Fort Strip providing late night dining and clubbing entertainment. In addition, many localized districts such as Burgos Circle and McKinley Hill are developing their own identity with community based shops, coffee bars and restaurants.
Schools in the neighborhood include the International School Manila, British School Manila, Systems Technology Institute and Global City Innovative College. For health concerns, Manila's premier hospital, St. Luke's Medical Center, is only a few hundred meters away from Market! Market!
