Metro Manila · Mediterranean McKinley Hill
McKinley Hill is one of the centrally planned developments in Fort Bonifacio, housing offices of many major BPO companies as well as a still growing number of condominium towers. The Tuscany Private Estates and the Venice Piazza give the place a Mediterranean flair.
McKinley Hill is nestled between the American Cemetery and several gated communities. It can only be reached through the bottleneck of McKinley Road, from Lawton Avenue in the West or from C-5 in the west.
The western stretch of McKinley Road is dominated by a string of high-rise office buildings where employees in the outsourcing industry work in shifts around the clock. The street’s eastern stretch has a Mediterranean ambience, with trees along the road and the Italy-inspired Tuscany residential buildings. The ground floor of this long-stretched development is occupied by one great restaurant after another, most of them having a little roofed outdoor area facing the street. You will find Filipino, Italian, Korean, German, and Japanese cuisine, among many others.
The Korean and the Chinese School and the embassies of Korean and the UK also contribute to the international atmosphere of McKinley Hill.
Venice Piazza and the Grand Canal Mall are the heart of McKinley Hill. Inspired by the City of Venice – including clock tower, a flock of doves and a canal complete with romantic bridges and gondolas – they offer dozens of additional dining options for every budget.
