"We are proud to announce the establishment of BMW Bonifacio Global City through this groundbreaking event. This is testament to BMW’s continued leadership, our pioneering innovation in the automotive industry, and strengthened confidence in the growing Filipino market," said Maricar Parco, ACC President.

The world-class showroom will be the 9th BMW showroom in the Philippines once it opens. It will be the tenth premium luxury brand to open a showroom at the Bonifacio Global City joining Audi, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lexus, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, and Rolls-Royce.

BMW Bonifacio Global City will be located at the corner of 3rd Avenue and 27th Street. It is scheduled to be operational by mid-2015 and will be housed on the ground floor of a state-of-the-art 23-storey building penned by Singapore-based Pomeroy Studio and built in partnership with the Century Properties Group. ACC will also be moving its corporate headquarters to the new building along with the rest of the Alvarez Group companies.

The building is being envisioned to achieve LEED certification which will complement the brand’s thrust on green mobility and sustainability. When asked on the possibility of seeing low to zero emission vehicles like the ActiveHybrid and the recently revealed i3 and i8 electric cars, BMW Group Asia Managing Director Neil Fiorentinos said that they are studying possible introduction once infrastructure is readily available.
