Anyway, with Fort, except for the Fort Bus, the CBD is car dependent. Other means of public transportation such as public bus, jeepney or FX are not allowed within Global City.

Makati and Ortigas on the other hand have public transpo going around its streets. Plus ped activity is high in these areas. Makati for example have pedestrian overpass and underpass.

FBGC though has some entertainment and nightlife areas which give vibrancy to the area. This is what Santa Fe lack.

Makati and Central are some of the best planned CBDs in Asia

I thought they were building LRT or PNR there in BGC?

If they do, hopefully it's underground. BGC looks great without the elevated rail.

Its gonna be underground unless they're crazy enough to do a circular monorail An elevated rail transit will ruin BGC's masterplan

Not yet but if the government decided to put a rail line through BGC, it has to be underground

for me, elevated rails looks good with the skyline. Bangkok has impressed me because you always see those rails lining up the skyline.

Manila has the same features as well since their metro lines are elevated. Tokyo and Seoul also have elevated lines.

Some parts of HK's MTR are elevated especially The Kwun Tong Line

You won't see though wires once you're inside the train travelling.

Yeah, but I've never ridden the MRT or LRT, so I see them outside.
I hate that they're contributing to the telephone and power lines. Probably when a good mayor decides to put those wires underground, the LRT/MRT might look better.

I`m agree with you. I think Asian cities are places oversaturated, plus if we add more wires, in this case from the metro, it makes to see the city more contaminated in a visal field.
A city with wires here and there, are cities that looks to be in non-developed countries. So that for the aesthetic of the cities, hide the wires please!!

The wire cables that Manila's metro uses is different from the telephone or power lines that you see in Manila's streets. Manila's electricity is overhead though the newest developments and CBDs have it underground.

Not really, even the most developed countries such as The US, Japan, South Korea or Australia use overhead wires.

Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai have overhead wires and they are some of the most developed cities in the world.

That's why they should make the old ones, like the ones in Intramuros and other landmarks like Quiapo, underground.
Hopefully, the wealthy, Chinese-Filipino community also beatifies their roots in Binondo. I heard they were gonna do that..

When I see it, priority if given to Manila's CBD's say Makati or Ortigas if there's a scheme of putting electrical wires underground.
