As much as it can be intimidating, buying a home can provide long-term and maximum benefits, especially when you pick the right property. But with the many options today, where do you look for the best one?
Whether you’re purchasing a unit for investment or buying a home where you can settle in the future, McKinley West in Fort Bonifacio is a smart neighborhood choice. Here are key reasons this 34.5-hectare township should be on top of your list.
1. Convenient lifestyle
When choosing a home, location always takes top priority—is it close to basic essentials such as grocery shops, clinics, and banks? Are there schools and job opportunities nearby? If you live in McKinley West, all these conveniences are well accounted for. With its strategic location and community make-up, you’ll have easy access to a wide range of establishments just a few minutes from your place.
2. High class home design
A former Jusmag property, McKinley West has now become one of the most sought-after communities in Fort Bonifacio; its condo properties are modern, luxurious, and European-inspired—specially crafted by the biggest names in architecture and design. For its three condo projects namely St. Moritz Private Estate, The Albany Luxury Residences, and Park McKinley West, Megaworld has tapped U.K.-based firm Broadway Malyan as principal architect consultant. Luxurious amenities also increase the desirability of these homes; from fitness to entertainment, there’s a lot of possibilities for condo dwellers to explore.
3. Scenic views
Your home in McKinley West can be a comfortable spot from which to gaze upon the best skyline and sunset views. The 25-storey Park McKinley West, the most recent addition and the tallest residential building yet in the township, offers uninterrupted panoramas of McKinley Hill, Makati, and Fort Bonifacio, addressing your need for contemplative recreation.
4. Award-winning projects
When it comes to track records, McKinley West does not disappoint. In 2019, it received citations both from the local and international scenes, recognizing Megaworld’s efforts in setting high standards for its developments.

5. Nearby future developments
McKinley West first made its name in 2010 when McKinley West Village was launched; ten years later, properties are still as attractive to both homebuyers and investors. The community is still developing so there’s a lot to watch out for. With the proposed infrastructure projects (e.g. Metro Manila Subway) and other developments to be built nearby (e.g. Senate of the Philippines), McKinley West’s continuing progress seems assured.
