Lucio Tan gives away P250-m prime property
Manila Standard

Owning or running a hospital is one obsession that tobacco and airline taipan Lucio Tan will soon realize. The Filipino-Chinese billionaire plans to put up his own hospital in Quezon City, most likely at the corner of Edsa and Quezon Avenue, where his Eton Properties Philippines Inc. is finishing the 10-hectare Eton Cyberpod Centris, a complex for business process outsourcing companies.

But before Tan could start work on his dream, the magnate, through the Tan Yan Kee Foundation, gave the Manila city government a prime lot in Sta. Ana that will shortly house the capital’s sixth public hospital. The donation was eagerly received by Mayor Alfredo Lim, who had thought of constructing a five-story hospital building.

The grapevine said Tan had learned about the mayor’s wish to build a second public hospital in the city. He, instead, suggested the construction of a 10-story hospital. “Sayang ang lupa,” a source quoted Tan as saying. Tan offered to help in the construction as well, aware of the city government’s limited resources.

The source said construction of the hospital project would start within a month for completion early next year.

. . .

Hospital fascination

Tan’s fascination with running his own hospital was sparked by his 10-year “indirect” exposure to Cardinal Santos Medical Center in Ortigas, San Juan. . . .

Tan’s involvement in the hospital business started in August 1988 through a close friend, businessman Hilario Murillo Sr. (Read Oct. 16, 2008 column)

The grapevine said Tan’s dream of owning a hospital would soon see its fruition. The businessman has tapped consultants to have the hospital plan re-designed in the US to fit into the Eton Cyberpod Centris complex along Quezon Ave.

The source said the taipan would likely name his new hospital the Tan Yan Kee Medical Center after his favorite charity—the Tan Yan Kee Foundation.

Museum to rise in Quezon City Memorial Circle
(philstar.com) Updated July 12, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - If plans do not miscarry, Quezon City will have an operational museum by April next year. Already, the city government has awarded to Palafox Associates the contract for the architectural design of the museum, which will sit on a one-hectare property inside the Quezon Memorial Circle, which will be bounded along East and Quezon Avenues. Bidding for said structure has been set this month, said Tadeo Palma, secretary to the mayor and infrastructure committee chairman.

A blueprint of the structure was presented to Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr. during the regular executive staff meeting, where Belmonte underscored the importance of putting up the museum in the effort of promoting Quezon City’s social development, particularly in the area of urban planning.

Vice Mayor Herbert Bautista and the Quezon City Ladies Foundation, Inc. chair Joy Belmonte-Alimurung said the Quezon City museum, once completed, shall serve as the country’s first social history museum that takes into account the needs, challenges and issues specific to Quezon City but are also relevant beyond the city.

The soon-to-open Quezon City museum, which will also house a bookstore and a library, contains formal and informal historical elements as well as inputs from sociologists, teachers from college and high school levels, museum practitioners, heritage and cultural experts. It will reflect current trends in historical museum design and museum education.

Already, the city’s 142 barangays have been encouraged to submit their respective cultural maps as possible materials for the museum. – Perseus Echeminada

Belmonte lauds strong Quezon City-business sector tie-up
(The Philippine Star) Updated August 17, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Quezon City is now assured of continuing economic growth stretching even decades beyond 2010 largely due to the strong partnership between the city government and the local business sector.

This was pointed out by Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr. during the 20th anniversary celebration and 10th induction ceremonies of the Quezon City Association of Filipino-Chinese Businessmen, Inc. (QCAFCBI), held at the CityBest Seafood Garden at Tomas Morato Avenue.

In his extemporaneous speech as guest of honor, Belmonte lauded the city’s business leaders, including the members of the QCAFCBI, for their dedication and commitment to the building of a strong economic foundation for a rapidly growing Quezon City.

“Without this partnership with the Quezon City government, it would have been very difficult, if not impossible, for us at QC Hall to make significant gains in our efforts to build a prosperous quality community,” the Mayor said.

The association’s new president John C. Kaw and honorary president William Li led the new set of officers in expressing gratitude to Belmonte for his business-friendly economic programs. They also assured the Mayor of their full support in the task of propelling the city to greater heights of economic growth.

With Kaw, inducted were executive vice president Benjamin Co and vice president Lorenzo Ching Peng Kung, Dy Pue Le, Cecilio Pedro, Luis de Jesus, Joseph Lim, Anson Tan, Miguel Tan, and Manuel Ormoc.

Also inducted were comptroller George Chua Cham and deputy comptrollers Leonardo Chua, Tai Kuo Hsing, Wilson Lim, and Daniel Ching; executive secretary Bobby Chua Ching; and treasurer Robert Yu.

The inducting officer was Dr. Alfonso A. Uy, president of the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII).

Vice Mayor Herbert M. Bautista, Joy Belmonte of the QC Ladies Foundation and several councilors were also at the anniversary celebration. Other guests included Energy Secretary Angelo Reyes, Rep. Annie Rosa Susano and NCRPO chief Director Roberto L. Rosales.

i agree that qc needs a museum....and museums are important part of our lives, but building it inside the quezon memorial circle is definitely a mistake....they have been bldg a lot of structures inside qmc and no one seems to care...those people opposing the building of tall structures in the surrounding vicinity that overpowers the quezon memorial monument, should instead be fighting this one because the developments being made is right inside the park itself. We will wake up one day that the remaining lungs of the city is gone. They could hardly maintain the qmc museum and here they are bldg another only to be wasted by poor upkeep later.... kakapanghinayang......yung mga supposedly conservationist where are you now.....you are fighting the wrong battles....developments inside qmc should be put to a minimum.....

I have read somewhere here in SSC about the plan to traverse MRT-7 inside the circle, but they are proposing it underground. My opinion so as avoid protruding upward structure this could be designed attached to that underground MRT-7 facilities as a compromise arrangement. Not at the extent of a the category of "Louvre' in France but on a similar concept. Or another way is to attach it with the Quezon monument tower similarly underground also since this will enhance more the value of that monument. This will not affect the existing trees anyway. That monument if right is already a museum.

Quezon City can very well afford all of those since it is the richest city in the Philippines.

Or another way is to attach it with the Quezon monument tower similarly underground also since this will enhance more the value of that monument. This will not affect the existing trees anyway. That monument if right is already a museum.
i like your idea....kung underground museum ba bakit hindi wag lang masira ang qmc.....good idea..

I'm confident that with Palafox as the architect for the museum, mitigation of impact to the environment would be given prime consideration. At the moment, there are a lot of structures within the QMC grounds that do not jive with the concept of a dignified memorial for one of our nation's beloved leaders. Though the QMC is a place for wholesome family recreation, I do not like the idea of a "theme park" within its perimeters. It's like putting Fiesta Carnival within Libingan ng mga Bayani. Those spaces occupied by kitschy structures should be appropriated for more relevant edifices. A museum, however, wouldn't be a strange bedfellow to the monument which is a museum on its own. I believe that the final design and execution would compliment and enhance rather than detract the majesty and solemnity of the older one.
