Manila to host tallest building in PH–Lim
by Nancy C. Carvajal | Philippine Daily Inquirer | Sunday | September 2nd, 2012 | 12:19 am

Manila wants to catch up in the race for the highest and brightest skyline.

Mayor Alfredo Lim yesterday said his city will soon host the tallest building in the country with the construction of a 101-story structure at the Manila Bay South Harbor as part of its revival as a business and amusement center.

Lim said a foreign-based group of investors led by Incheon Metropolitan City international adviser Rev. Dr. Jeon Dae Gu and Easy Led Corp. Phil. president Man Young Yoon will undertake the project.

In a statement, he said some $4 billion will go into the development of a “global hub (in Manila) that will rival those abroad with glittering business and amusement activities 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

It is expected to generate some 15,000 jobs starting with its construction, with the towering building marking its financial center. “(It) will be the highest in the country that will be built at no cost to the national and local government.”

A 73-story, 302-meter high condominium in Makati City is currently considered the highest building in the country.

Saturday’s announcement marked the first time Lim spoke in more detail about the envisioned South Harbor Expanded Port Zone (SHEPZ), which will cover around 36 hectares stretching from Delpan Bridge to Bonifacio Drive.

In February, the city government and the Philippine Ports Authority formed a committee to discuss large-scale developments under the project.

Among the priority sites for development are the areas along A. Bonifacio Drive at the north-eastern side, according to PPA General Manager Juan Sta. Ana in a statement then issued by City Hall.

Lim said the SHEPZ project would help Manila “reclaim its stature as the country’s financial capital,” a distinction that has been held for decades by Makati.

Waterfront eyed as corporate hub
By admin | Manila Standard Today | Monday | Posted on Sep. 03, 2012 at 12:02am

MANILA Mayor Alfredo Lim expects a booming capital with the opening of $4-billion “Global Financial Hub” in South Harbor, Port Area.

He said the city would face up to New York City as business and financial mecca.

“We will turn the area like Wall Street,” he said, noting that many of those who do business in Makati and rent spaces in properties of the Ayalas had come from Manila.

Lim said the parents of these young executives and entrepreneurs started their business downtown, but after children and the grandchildren—the second and third generations—returned from foreign studies, they opted to stay in Makati.

“That’s what they saw abroad. Alam mo na (you know), ala Wall Street,” he said.

Head offices of big companies moving elsewhere toward the 1970s from what used to be “Escolta Walk” and its stretch of prestigious establishments.

Lim said the 36-hectare seaboard district at the back of the National Power Corporation and the Department of Public Works and Highways will be studded with high-rise to reconfigure city skyline.

“Naturally, the value will also increase once the high-rise condominiums are built fronting Manila Bay. And this will have a chain reaction,” he said.

“South Harbor area is just near the Golf Course in Intramuros on A. Bonifacio Drive and Roxas Boulevard. They can go there any time of the day.”

In a statement released to the media last Saturday, Lim said investors led by Incheon Metropolitan City international adviser Rev. Dr. Jeon Dae Gu and Easy Led Corp., Philippines president Man Young Yoon, have proposed to build the hub at no cost to the government. Incheon is a sister-city of Manila.

“It will be abuzz with glittering business and amusement activities 24 hours a day seven days a week,” he said, adding that the development will be under the Manila Bay South Harbor Expanded Port Zone Project of the Philippine Ports Authority.

$4-B financial hub planned for Manila
by JOVEE MARIE N. DELA CRUZ | Manila Times | Tuesday | Published on 02 October 2012

Mayor Alfredo Lim of Manila on Monday said that the local and national governments are currently in talks for the construction of a financial center in Manila.

After the introduction of their candidates in 2013 midterm elections, Lim informed everyone that talks are now underway with the national government for the building of a $4-billion center “Global Financial Hub” in Manila which he said will be the legacy that he and President Benigno Aquino 3rd, will leave for Manilans.

Lim said that the financial center will generate a minimum of 150,000 jobs with Manila residents as priority in the employment process.

He said that center is also expected to boost tourism in the city, since the center will be complete with shopping centers, high-rise residential towers and a host of other business establishments which will all be operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Lim said that the Global Financial Hub will be built under the Manila Bay South Harbor Expanded Port Zone Project through the efforts of foreign-based investors led by Incheon Metropolitan City international adviser Rev. Dr. Jeon Dae Gu and Easy Led Corp., Philippines president Man Young Yoon. Incheon City in Korea is a sister-city of Manila.

He said that the new financial hub will be built at no cost to the government.

The ambitious plan to build the Manila Financial District may fall under the Private-Public Partnership Program (PPP) of the Aquino administration, Mayor Alfredo Lim said on Wednesday, adding that the project has attracted the attention of South Korean firms.

During an exclusive roundtable with The Manila Times, Lim said that the plan for the financial district was submitted to the Economic Cluster of the Cabinet for review and possible endorsement as a PPP project.

“We plan to finish the financial center by 2016,” Lim said. “The financial center is also expected to generate a minimum of 150,000 jobs with Manila residents as priority in the employment process,” he added.

He said that the Manila Financial District, originally called the Global Financial Hub, would be built under the Manila Bay South Harbor Expanded Port Zone Project through the efforts of foreign-based investors led by Incheon Metropolitan City international adviser Rev. Dr. Jeon Dae Gu and Easy Led Corp. Philippines president Man Young Yoon.

A total of 17 South Korean companies presented the concept of the financial district to Lim. The cost of the project was pegged at $4 billion.
