BGC: New Construction Update (10/27/19)

BGC: New Construction Update (10/27/19)

It’s been awhile since I provided readers a new construction update on real estate projects located in Bonifacio Global City (BGC). At the heart of it all, though, I’ve been (and remain very much) a real estate guy. So, although it was of course lots of fun getting back into the swing of things out here in Manila, it didn’t long before my other instincts wanted to shift focus and observe how many real estate projects in BGC have progressed since I was last out here this past April.

For starters, let’s take a look at how Megaworld’s residential projects (condos) in Uptown have evolved…

Uptown Ritz and Park Suites

Funny enough, I took the following image way back in January 2018, for no reason at all, before I was even really into looking to purchase anything out here in Manila.

And I continued taking shots when I came back to BGC in October 2018, at which point I decided that I would begin actively begin shopping for a unit; BGC became a strong conviction idea of mine in late 2018, if you’ll recall.

Finally, here we are now, and where things stand presently with the Park Suites project.

And from the other side… Before and after…

So much pretty glass, yah?

The front… or is this the back of the building?

Still a long ways to go to completion, it would appear…

Grand Hyatt South Tower Residences

Moving along, we have the Grand Hyatt South Tower Residences, which has bene rapidly ramping up construction this year.

April 2019

It’s almost covering up the Grand Hyatt Manila Hotel from this angle, now…

The Montane

One of Avida’s final residential projects in BGC, The Montane, has also progressed quite a bit since from the earlier part of this year…

Check out the exterior and painting…

And just like that, a few days later (from the above image)…

And further, for this BGC new construction update, in Uptown, we have Avida’s final tower in BGC, Turf.

Turf Tower 2 still isn’t topped off yet, but it’s getting there, slowly but surely…

The Uptown area is coming alive, and many projects which were once deemed “early stage” have now matured greatly, since I first started snapping up photos back in early 2018.

Mitsukoshi Mall (And The Seasons Residences)

Lastly, there’s Federal Land’s flagship (and super expensive) Mitsukoshi Mall (joint venture project) + The Seasons Residences, which were both only breaking ground about a year ago…

October 2018

Here’s what it looked like in April…

Now, it looks like this!

I personally can’t wait until the Mitsukoshi Mall is finished; it should really be a standout attraction in BGC!

More Updates

Now that I’m back in Manila, it’s going to be a lot easier for me to keep tabs on many of the new projects going on around in BGC.

Real estate isn’t for everyone, but whether we are talking about a personal residence or rental property, there’s something about houses that get a lot of folks (like me) excited and riled up. As it pertains to early FI, sometimes all it takes is just one property in the right location to make it all possible.

I hope you enjoyed these pics!

I’m looking forward to sharing some more BGC new construction update with you all, as the years go by!
