It is said that all Bonifacio Global City needs to make the city the new financial center of the country is for it to have establishments that can cater to both short and long staying travellers. True enough, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig is a growing financial hub that rivals Ayala CBD in Makati and Ortigas Center in Pasig. From becoming a home to numerous multinational companies, to concept restaurants and bars, luxury retail stores, international schools, and an internationally accredited medical facility—BGC has finally embraced cosmopolitan living. 

“Bonifacio Global City has been recognized globally as the Philippines’ newest financial center as it is able to cater to the needs of various international businesses. In developing business cities like BGC in Taguig, serviced apartments are preferred, especially with companies just starting their offices in the city which will require travelers to stay for extended periods.With this, we find AscottBonifacio Global CityManila as the remaining pieceof the puzzle that can cater to the upscale clientele in BGC to truly make the city the country’s newest CBD,” said Mr. Arthur Gindap, Regional General Manager of The AscottLimited.

Stunning and Eco-friendly Design

This 30-storey property has 220 units that range from studio to two-bedroomresidences and is tastefully decorated using art and indigenous materials as accents. 

AscottBonifacio Global CityManila strictly observes green practices to maintain its low carbon footprint by consuming less electricity and water, which improves indoor quality. This is possible with the property’s all-glass fa├žade, whichallows more natural light to enter the building, while its Low-E glass lessens internal building temperature that reduces the energy used for air-conditioning.

The property even received a provisional Green Mark Certificate from Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority, for its environment-friendly practices including achieving Concrete Usage Index (CUI), use of Low-VOC Paints, Low-VOC Adhesives, Low-E glass panels, and low-flow toilet fixtures.
