History

Bonifacio Global City was once called Fort McKinley when the United States government first acquired it in 1902. Three years after the Philippines gained independence from the United States, Fort McKinley was turned over to the Philippine government. In 1957, it was renamed Fort Bonifacio after Andres Bonifacio—the Father of Philippine Revolution. In 2003, Ayala Land, Inc. and Evergreen Holdings, Inc. partnered with Bases Conversion and Development Authority to help shape and develop Bonifacio Global City—turning an area once synonymous with war and aggression into the world-class business and residential center it is today.
