The roundabout was named after martyred priest José Burgos of Gomburza, it serves as the intersection between Forbestown Road, 1st Avenue, 2nd Avenue, and 29th Street.

Burgos Circle History

Burgos Circle was planned as part of the Forbes Town Center, a mixed-use development by the Megaworld Corporation inspired by Bugis Village in Singapore.

Approaching Burgos Circle

The circle first came to prominence in 2009, when it was identified as a new dining hotspot. With a number of new restaurants opening in the area at the time, Burgos Circle was likened to Remedios Circle, Greenbelt 2, and Serendra as a new, up-and-coming hangout area, mostly catering to young professionals.

The Trees

At the center of the park is a sculpture by Reynato Paz Contreras called The Trees, the first piece of public art to be installed in the Bonifacio Global City. The bronze-and-brass piece was commissioned by the Bonifacio Art Foundation, which is responsible for maintaining the district's public art installations.

Measuring 6.5 meters (21 ft) tall and surrounded by a grove, The Trees consists of three interlocking trees which form a dome. Representing the circle of life, the trees are a reminder of the progressive development and the preservation of Mother Earth, while the branches represent stability.

Underground Basin

Underneath Burgos Circle is a 72-meter (236 ft) wide, six-storey deep retarding basin for retaining flood water. During heavy rain, the basin retains water until it is emptied when the weather clears into creeks that flow to Manila Bay.

Built during the initial development of the Bonifacio Global City at a cost of ₱60 million, and only one of two existing retarding basins in Metro Manila (the other located beneath the Magallanes Interchange), the basin has been credited for preventing flooding on both Epifanio de los Santos Avenue and Kalayaan Avenue.

Burgos Circle Restaurants

The area is lined with a diverse range of restaurants, cafes, and eateries. It's a popular spot for both residents and visitors to enjoy various cuisines and dining experiences.
  • UCC Clockwork
  • Tim Hortons
  • Shaka Cafe
  • Melo's Steak House
