FRESH from having sold a never-developed property at Horseshoe Village-Santolan to Rockwell Land, the Madrigal clan has just disposed of another piece of empty land behind the ruins of the Jai Alai complex in Manila.

As to DMCI Homes, the developer apparently plans to capitalize on the proximity of the Jai Alai site to City Hall, Adamson University and the nearby schools and the LRT station as well as the property’s still unobstructed view of the Manila Bay (without the Roxas Boulevard premium) as selling points of the planned condo complex.

Cultural and environment activists are trying to enlist public support to block the construction of a high-rise condominium building that they claim will destroy the public’s view of the Rizal Monument in Rizal Park.
Tour guide Carlos Celdran has initiated an online petition and has even put up a Facebook page to call on DMCI Holdings to abandon its plan to build the 41-story Torre de Manila Condominium on Taft Avenue, behind the lot previously occupied by the Manila Jai Alai building.
In his posts on Facebook and another social networking site, Tumblr, Celdran said, “It is outside [the park] but it impedes on the sanctity of the heritage landscape. You think any mayor or developer in Paris would allow an ugly private condo to be built right behind the Eiffel Tower? I’m sorry. But they should find a new lot. This looks like an interesting legal battle for the new law [on national heritage sites].”
In the online petition (http://www.change.org/petitions/no-t...manila-project), the condominium project was compared to the two factory chimney stacks (demolished in 2009) that had also ruined people’s view of the Rizal Monument.
Celdran called on Filipinos to speak up about the future building and for DMCI to rethink the project.
“Not only is this building offensive to our national hero, our national identity and all things good and true—but it’s also a ridiculous investment,” he said as he warned prospective buyers about traffic and the possibility of losing view of the Manila Bay sunset since the building was on “sandwich property” or in the center of the block.

CONDO NEAR LUNETA VIOLATES NO LAW - INQUIRER NEWS

The Manila city building officer who faces charges from city councilors following his approval of a 40-story condominium defended his actions amid criticism that the building would mar the view of Rizal Park.
Melvin Balagot said he granted a building permit to the developer DMCI Homes for its Torre de Manila project on July 5 because the company had duly submitted all requirements, including an approval from the city planning office in the form of a zoning permit.
In an interview with the Inquirer Tuesday, he insisted that DMCI was clear of any violations under the national building code and other laws, and therefore had a right to a speedy approval of its application.
“Based on the building code, they have no problems. They complied with all requirements and we couldn’t sit on it. There were no grounds for delay and no reason not to issue a building permit,” Balagot stressed.
Balagot maintained that the proposed site for Torre de Manila was a kilometer away from the Rizal monument and that there were no heritage laws restricting the construction of a high-rise building within that distance.
He also disclosed that DMCI had received a height clearance permit from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, allowing the construction of the 165-meter-tall building on Taft Avenue, Ermita.
Balagot also denied disrespecting the city council by not attending its public hearings in relation to the project. DMCI officials were also invited to the hearings but did not attend and only sent a letter to the council.
“We sent them a letter requesting that they address their invitation to Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim as a courtesy. We can only go with his clearance,” Balagot explained. He invited the councilors to just see him at his office if they have any questions or requests for documents.
He noted with regret that Torre de Manila, despite having no legal infringements, had come under heavy fire. “They keep saying Manila is being left behind. Now here comes a private developer and they’re attacking it.”
“We’ll face the council’s complaints and we’ll answer them in the proper forum,” he said.
The Manila City Council last week released a committee report alleging that DMCI Homes and city officials acted “in conspiracy” to have the Torre de Manila project approved.
Cultural activist and tour guide Carlos Celdran, who has actively promoted Manila’s historical landmarks, launched an online campaign last month against the project, saying that it would mar the view of the iconic monument of national hero Dr. Jose Rizal at the park also known as Luneta.
Celdran later presented to the council a petition that had gathered more than 4,000 signatories asking DMCI to reconsider its plans.
The committee report alleged that Torre de Manila, based on plans posted on the DMCI website, would violate the city’s zoning ordinance. It recommended the filing of appropriate charges in the Manila Metropolitan Trial Court against Balagot and the company officials.
According to the council, the condominium would exceed the floor area ratio and the maximum height for buildings in that area which is considered a university zone.
In a statement Tuesday, Celdran hailed the council’s move as “a landmark” decision in Manila’s history, but maintained that it should not be taken as an attack on developers but rather as a protective measure serving the interest of its citizens.
“This decision shows that Manileños take importance in their history. Manileños will not accept the commercialization and visual desecration of its most important historical sites, but more importantly, this is a signal to people out there that if they want to do business in the historical parts of our city, they must respect that history along with its laws,” Celdran said.

What will be the reaction of DMCI Homes after receiving this petition that had gathered more than 4,000 signatories? Will it make DMCI Homes reconsider its plans regarding Torre de Manila?

luneta park is not the Central Park of the Philippines to be surrounded by highrises on all sides... its more like our historic National Mall of the capital city

Hmmm. Kung gawin na lang kayang medium-rise ng DMCI ang Torre de Manila. Pero masyado atang maliit yung lot na ito, kaya to maximize the space high-rise ang ipapatayo.

besides that & making money, we also have to think about preserving our heritage sites especially the national monument & the final resting place of our national hero... there are hundreds of high rises going up, behind the national monument is just not the place for this. maybe the gov't can buy the lot & use it or sell it to someone else that wouldnt put up a high rise there.

Manila councilors eye ban on building of towers that will destroy Rizal Park vista


MANILA, Philippines—Councilors are mulling enforcing a ban on the construction of buildings that might affect the overall vista of national heritage sites in the City of Manila, such as the Rizal Park or Luneta.

In a draft ordinance obtained by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Councilors Don Juan “DJ” Bagatsing, Sheilah Lacuna-Pangan, Jocelyn Dawis-Asuncion, Jocelyn Quintos, Cristina Isip, Numero Lim and Richard Ibay, said the proposed measure was sought to keep the integrity of historical sites.

Construction of buildings, particularly high-rise structures that might “ruin the line of sight of any historical and cultural site or monument” is strictly prohibited,” the proposed measure read.

Commenting on the measure, Bagatsing said he wasn’t hindering the development of the city, which has indeed degenerated over the years.

“Rather, this is an urgent call for responsible urban development, as well as, a heartfelt plea for the preservation of the cultural-historical integrity of the Rizal Shrine and other national monuments situated within Manila,” he told the Inquirer.

He said the measure was spurred by the “hasty” issuance of building permits to developer DMCI, which has been set to build a 41-story condominium along Taft Avenue.

Opponents of the project said the condominium called Torre de Manila would impair the majestic view of Rizal Shrine, with Bagatsing describing the building as a “sore thumb.”

The draft ordinance likewise required condominium developers seeking to construct buildings near historical areas to seek a dialogue with the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, among other agencies, before pushing through with any projects.

Violators face a P5,000 fine on the first offense and a one year prison term. City Hall may also revoke any permits issued in their favor.
