The city government of Taguig announced that property developer Ayala Land is set to transform the 120-hectare Food Terminal Incorporated or (FTI) as the next Bonifacio Global City or (BGC).

Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano disclosed that Ayala Land have already started the development of the area. She said commercial buildings like shopping malls, restaurants, amusement parks, etc., are expected to be built in the area which is expected to create more jobs and boost tourism in the area.

In an interview, Cayetano said Ayala has started developing the roads. She disclosed that Ayala plans to do a mix development with office buildings for Process Outsource companies and commercial and residential establishments, talagang mix development.

Cayetano thanked the city’s private partners in helping transform the sleepy side of the city to a business and commercial hub.

FTI is strategically located about 2.4 km north of Bicutan Interchange, 2.3 km southeast of the Fort Bonifacio overpass and about 4.4 km southeast of EDSA. It is accessible through two major arteries: the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and C-5 via SLEX’s East Service Road.

A terminal in itself, FTI is reachable through other means of transport as its vast confines is fronted by the Philippine National Railroad (PNR) and the Laguna Bay at the rear. Also, its proximity translates to a 15-minute drive from the Central Business District in Makati and, a 20-minute ride from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) as well as the Manila Domestic Airport.

The complex is girdled by a mixture of commercial, residential, industrial districts, and community centers within a five-kilometer radius, all the more contributing to its ideal setting.

At present, plans for the proposed FTI Interchange, linking existing FTI roads to the C-5, the SLEX and the Metro Manila Skyway, are methodically being studied. Once completed, this interchange will inevitably boost economic activity in FTI and its vicinity and will surely open the door for other opportunities for commerce and industry.

Cayetano, in the same interview, said that for 2014, her administration will also focus more on improving health services by constructing more hospitals and building more school buildings that will benefit students.

Taguig City, it was recalled, currently has 25 Barangay Health Centers, each equipped to provide dental services; three Barangay Health Stations; two public lying-in clinics; six basic diagnostic laboratories; one secondary hospital (Taguig-Pateros District Hospital); 34 Botika sa Barangay outlets; and one Animal Bite Center.
