The 100-hectare project is a land use and urban design plan for the Philippine Army's retention area at Fort Bonifacio. It accommodates the National Capital Regions Security Brigade and its ancillary facilities. General planning includes the provision of high quality security and easy deployment, strategic location and facilities, and insulation from off-camp activities, while observing a plan that complements with the surrounding developments.
The overall plan is organized under a concept of evolving an autonomous community, though small, is responsive to the expressed purposes of the retention area. Efficient inter-linkages with extraneous relationships are given priority in the plan.
The distribution of land use characteristics is premised on effecting congeniality. This is ascertained by the acquisition of the required volumes of accommodations for each determined function while ensuring the generation of space relations between buildings and the greenery.
The development plan complements the character of other proposed developments in the privatized Fort Bonifacio "Global City" Development. General planning included the provision of particular needs of a military installation such as high quality security and easy deployment, strategic location of facilities, and insulation from extraneous activities while observing a plan that complements surrounding urban developments.
