Ayala Land creates most remarkable footprint in BGCBy Theresa S. Samaniego

Property developers often dream to build their “pièce de résistance” akin to every artist who aspires to create his own masterpiece.
While a number of developments across the country have, in one way or another, earned rightful bragging rights for their projects that boast of “unique” features and amenities, there are admittedly those that would stand out for their trailblazing efforts in the real estate industry.
For Ayala Land Inc., its P30-billion premium urban and lifestyle hub may very well be its “pièce de résistance” within the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.
Regarded as the biggest investment in one singular area, One Bonifacio High Street has been deemed as “the most remarkable footprint” of Ayala Land within BGC, together with its partners Evergreen Holdings and Fort Bonifacio Development Corp.
“To date, Ayala Land is at the forefront of these developments, as well the evolution of BGC as a whole, solidifying the company’s vision, leadership and dynamism in bringing large-scale, mixed-use urban hubs in the country,” said Antonino T. Aquino, president of Ayala Land and FBDC.
“And essentially, Bonifacio High Street banners Ayala Land’s aggressive efforts in BGC, as evinced by the presence of the developments within its one-kilometer strip that traverses at the heart of the district,” Aquino said in a recent press briefing.
According to Aquino, One Bonifacio High Street will seamlessly integrate within a three-hectare block a triple A grade office building that will soon be the new home of the Philippine Stock Exchange; a premium lifestyle center; an all-suite residential tower by Ayala Land Premier which is called The Suites; as well as Shangri La Hotel, which will offer five-star hotel amenities.
Since more than a third of BGC’s total land area has been devoted to open and landscaped lawns, the One Bonifacio High Street urban hub will be in tune with its overall soothing vibe by including a lush park pensively designed to harmonize with the towering landmarks.
All-suite residential dev’t
While the commercial and lifestyle facets of the Bonifacio High Street are being culminated by the rise of the remarkable office building, hotel and the lifestyle center that encompass One Bonifacio High Street, Ayala Land Premier expands its footprint in the district by bringing the first and only all-suite residential development in the block—The Suites.
Initially introduced during a priority selling event, The Suites at One Bonifacio High Street was well received by the market, now with only three units left available for sale out of the 298 total number of units.
Carrying Ayala Land’s legacy in bringing premium residential spaces in distinguishing enclaves, The Suites at One Bonifacio High Street has evidently piqued the interest of the market with a new living concept in a new address that furthers the district’s panorama of lifestyle experiences.
“The Suites at One Bonifacio High Street is a 63-story iconic single tower that will banner 298 residential suites and limited edition sky villas,” noted Jose Juan Jugo, group head for Ayala Land Premier.
Finest residential masterpiece
“Characterized by larger-than-usual unit areas and soaring ceiling heights, what is touted as the finest residential masterpiece of One Bonifacio High Street will offer generous cuts of living spaces that range from 136 square meters to 430 sq m,” Jugo explained.
As One Bonifacio High Street upholds a distinctly sophisticated lifestyle in its site, The Suites will similarly present premium finishes and fixtures such as Siematic kitchens and first-rate amenities that will serve as every resident’s haven.
“The rise of One Bonifacio High Street as a premium mixed-use block puts into view the prolific undertaking of Ayala Land in BHS. This development, too, serves as yet another tangible proof of the significance of the company’s investments as it serves the fruition of their vision in shaping multi-functional landscapes that broaden the progress of urban hubs in the country,” Aquino concluded.
