The master-planned city is basically in the middle of everything. Nearby business districts such as Makati and Ortigas are just 5-10 minutes away. It’s no wonder various local and international corporations and offices have set up headquarters here.
Getting to work is no problem in BGC because major roads of Metro Manila are highly accessible. It’s linked to EDSA and C-5, and can be accessed through Kalayaan Avenue from the north, the Kalayaan Flyover from EDSA and Makati, the Airport through the Villamor Air Base from the south, the C-5 Highway gates form the east and McKinley Road from the west.
You can leave your worries behind once you step out of your home or office because BGC provides full-time round-the-clock security. They range from the obvious spick-and-span guards at Bonifacio High Street, who seem to know the location of every single store and restaurant in BGC, to the roving guards on motorcycles dressed in civilian attire.
No need to bring a pair of slippers or rain boots to work because BGC is well-known for being flood free, all thanks to the Burgos Circle flood water tank. This five-story structure stores all the floodwater and then pumps it into creeks that flow into the bay. There’s also an underground liquefied petroleum gas piping system that distributes gas to homes. Cables for electricity, telephones, video and data applications run underground as well. By having this set up, the superb beauty of BGC’s skyline is preserved.
Power interruptions aren’t a problem in BGC because buildings are supplied with backup power. This is highly favorable especially to BPO companies since they operate 24/7. Having no electricity and active systems for just a few hours can cost the company thousands of dollars.
BGC’s average asking rental rates for Grade A buildings is at Php 708/sqm to Php 1,000/sqm and Php 18,500/seat to Php 20,000/seat for seats in serviced offices. Makati’s rates are considerably higher at Php1,027/sqm to Php1,200/sqm. This is another reason why many companies with offices in Makati and Ortigas would most likely also find a home in BGC.
BGC has more available space for rent or sale and most of these are found in new buildings such as SM Aura Office Tower, RCBC Savings Bank Corporate Center, Ecotower, and W Fifth Avenue.
Taguig City’s tax rates are much lower than the other neighboring cities, making it a very competitive place for business.
After a long day at work, a stroll in BGC is definitely a feast for your senses as you walk through large swathes of greenery. These open spaces and community parks are perfect for dog-walking, picnics, and fitness activities.
