Located in the northern district of Fort Bonifacio extending all the way to Kalayaan Avenue, the township development will feature up to 18 towers, offering 500,000 square meters of residential space, 400,000 square meters of office space and 90,000 square meters of retail space.

“Uptown Bonifacio, designed to be the country’s newest business district, will take Megaworld’s live-work-play lifestyle to new heights,” said Noli Hernandez, Megaworld senior vice president for marketing.

Among its residential offerings will be the 45-storey One Uptown Residence valued at P7.5 billion. It will have a luxury mall with a basement retail strip that will serves as a connecting walkway to the 3-level 33,000 square meters Uptown Place.
