THE SKYLINE of Bonifacio Global City (BGC) is rapidly changing, with the rise of new landmark office buildings designed by global and local architectural design firms.
One such building is the 32-story The Curve, located along 32nd Street.
The asymmetric glass-encased building was designed by a team led by a New York-based architectural and urban planning firm.
Lylah Fronda-Ledonio, executive director of Leechiu Property Consultants (LPC), said The Curve’s distinctive silhouette makes it stand out from the rest of the buildings in the area.
“Better yet, the landlord’s investment in design, coupled with its strategic location, have generated a lot of interest from potential occupiers,” she said.
Leechiu Property Consultants is currently marketing The Curve, along with 48 projects in Metro Manila and Cebu City.
The new crop of visually striking buildings like The Curve have sustainable, water and energy efficient towers with LEED certifications. LEED is the most widely used green building rating system in the world.
“Many of Manila’s new iconic buildings are not only visually appealing but also provide healthy and comfortable indoor environments for occupants and their visitors,” Mikko Barranda, LPC associate director, said.
The Curve is also within a special economic zone in BGC accredited by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority and entitled to tax incentives.
