Even though the development of Fort Bonifacio started twenty years ago, It is still not possible to pass through Fort Bonifacio in any direction without being affected by the construction work of a new building. Granted, today Fort Bonifacio, alternatively known as Bonifacio Global City, is about 70% developed, but there are still large construction sites in the middle of the city center. In case you wonder what those sites are for, we have done some snooping around for you, and identified the buildings that are either nearly finished, half finished, or at the early stage of construction.

Will Fort Bonifacio look like what is being depicted in this model when all the buildings are completed? only time will tell. Omitted from this model, which is located outside the Mind Museum, are Uptown buildings and SM Aura Premier.
