McKinley Hill—Megaworld Corp.’s 50-hectare township in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig—may not be the real estate developer’s biggest in Metro Manila: that distinction is held by Alabang West in Las Piñas. It is not the first, as Quezon City’s Eastwood City in Brgy. Bagumbayan is the Andrew Tan–led developer’s first township in the Philippines. And it is not the latest either, with the San Fernando, Pampanga project Capital Town being the developer’s newest township, launched in 2017. But what McKinley Hill has that most of these mixed-use developments lack is true completeness and convenience.
Indeed, McKinley Hill can be considered the epitome of a mixed-use township. In keeping with its live–work–play–learn–shop concept, it has everything a potential condo buyer and owner would ever need. It has schools (Chinese International School Manila, Korean International School Philippines, Enderun College, and Mint College), 18 office buildings home to more than 90 local and multinational companies; a football stadium; restaurant strips; a high-end, Venice-inspired shopping mall with a grand canal, gondolas, and singing gondoliers; a high-end gated village; and lots and lots of residential condo developments, all of which offer plenty of condos for sale for discriminating property buyers and investors.
