Almost every Sunday morning, we see exotic automobiles congregate inside Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Needless to say, these cars are owned by wealthy Filipino car enthusiasts who'd rather you didn't know their private details (especially their places of residence). And while it's already an amazing experience just looking at these supercars, we have to admit we sometimes catch ourselves wondering where exactly their owners park them.
Well, our sister publication Forbes Philippines has just released its latest roster of "the 50 richest Filipinos," and you can read about it in the magazine's September 2015 issue. To complement the cover story, Forbes Philippines posted an interesting list on its Facebook page, showing where said 50 richest Filipinos live.
According to the list, Forbes Park in Makati City has the most number of richest Filipinos with 14, each of whom has an average net worth of $2.34 billion. Next is Dasmariñas Village (Makati) with six ($1.58 billion average), followed by Greenhills (San Juan City) and Wack-Wack (Mandaluyong City) with four each ($880 million and $674 million average, respectively).
Green Meadows (Quezon City) is fifth on the list with three ($207 million average), followed by Bagumbayan (Quezon City) with two ($940 million average).
Other posh communities with at least one richest Filipino are Corinthian Gardens (Quezon City), Ayala Heights (Quezon City), Mandaue City (Cebu), BF Resort (Las Piñas City), Ermita (Manila), Santa Mesa Heights (Quezon City), New Manila (Quezon City), Cubao (Quezon City), Valle Verde (Pasig City), Iloilo City (Iloilo), Pasay City, and Ugong Norte (Quezon City).
Curiously, five richest Filipinos on the list have "no reported address."
So there. If you feel like car-spotting, you now know which gated subdivisions probably have the largest concentration of expensive vehicles. Then again, we also know a few people on the list who are actually very prudent with their automotive procurement. Still, we're willing to bet the top communities offer some of the finest cars in the country.
