BAYCITY,METROMANILA'S new skyline!!!
The Bay City (Boulevard 2000) is a priority government infrastructure designed to change the skyline of Metro Manila for the 21st century.
The reclaimed area along the coast of Manila Bay consisting of approximately 1,500 hectares comprises the Bay City. The entire area which covers the stretch of Roxas Boulevard from the Cultural Center of the Philippines to the Coastal Road – Las Pinas area, including its shoreline, is divided into six component parts. These form a potentially integrated planned community.
The seven components are under the jurisdiction of four cities and a municipality. These are the cities of Manila, Pasay, Paranaque, Las Pinas and the Municipality of Bacoor.
The transformation of the reclaimed area will be realized with the cooperation of some of the major players in large scale property development. These are Tan Yu of Asiaworld, Henry Sy of SM, Inc., George Ty of Metrobank Group of Companies, the R-1 Consortium composed of Jan de Nul N.V., TOA Corporation of Japan and D.M. Wenceslao and Associates, Inc., and Jacinto Ng of the Manila Bay Development Corporation.

Current locators in the area aside from the CCP are the Manila Film Center, Folk Arts Theatre, Philippine International Convention Center, Philippine Plaza Hotel, Coconut Palace, Ferry Terminal and Star City among others.
>>>Financial Center Area Complex
