I love the new CBD in Quezon City owing to the fact that it is a former squatters colony.

WOW!

Damn I didn't know philippines was building so much!... last time i visited PI was back in 2003. Nice to see that the country is developing it's cities to become more highly developed

Metro Manila looks dense and has "Manhattanized" immensely and has a beautiful and still expanding skyline.... PROBLEM IS... the streets look really empty of pedestrian activity.... You don't see a lot of people walking and i think this has too do because the lack of mass transit use... i think the philippines should also invest in subway trains.. and have retail on every ground floor of the new buildings with train station stops every few blocks.... just like you see in Paris, London, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tokyo, New York, San Francisco and many other world class cities with an efficient mass transit system.

Instead of building malls here and there for people to drive to and shop then drive back home... They should put a few retail stores, restaurants, and cafes on the first floors of EVERY building facing the streets.. storefronts... this causes people to actually walk on the streets of the city going from store to store in an urban setting... pedestrian activity is what makes the area more lively.... wider sidewalks for more room for people to walk

Metro Manila skyline is probably going to be one of the best in the world, but you don't want a city that's only nice to look at from far away, but up close as well. Any city can have an amazing skyline, but if the streets are dead of activity with nowhere to go whether it be a coffee shop, bookstore, sunglasses store, restaurants, furniture store etc etc, what's the point of visiting the city.. u know?? Look up on google "streets of new york city" or any of the other cities i mentioned earlier and you'll see how alive it looks with people walking around. parking lots and strip malls are what causes dead zones in a city, breaking the synergy of the city and neighborhoods.. you want the stores to meet up against the streets to bring life outside.. not inside like what malls do.

Other than that.. keep it up guys =] I can't wait to visit again.

Pedestrian Activity

Notice that all buildings in the pictures below have some sort of retail, cafe, restaurant, or office/hotel/residential entrance on the ground floors, which bring people to the streets to shop or eat out which activate the streets with life.. ALSO Note that tall buildings don't make a bustling city... PEOPLE are what makes cities thrive...along with proper planning of how to evenly distribute commercial, residential, office and park space in the city, with an effective transportation system (Freeways, subways, streetcars, buses, monorails, etc) to move people throughout the city.

Paris


London


Los Angeles


Chicago


Tokyo


New York


San Francisco


In contrast to this with blank walls, no ground floor retail and empty sidewalks with no people bringing life to the streets
Metro Manila

you sound like you didnt even go to manila

maybe if the weather in Manila is as cool as those cities you've posted nowhere near the equator.. instead of hot & humid tropical equatorial weather... of course more people would be out!
i've never really liked drinking my hot coffee outside when its burning humid hot already... its like asking why less people like to walk outside in Phoenix than say London

many people are inside for free A/C they want to cool down inside... thats why the largest malls in the world can be found here.. because people wants it

even with that you can still see a lot of people on the streets... manila is so densely populated... theres no way its that empty as shown in the pics you've posted.. metro manila has 20 million population those people has to be somewhere


the first 2 pics you posted is makati cbd... probably on a sunday.... the bars & other establishments are just a few blocks away from there
the last pic is fort bonifacio... you can see the lots are still... empty.. that area is still under construction

heres makati on a regular day

Despite the hot and humid weather, pedestrian activity in Metro Manila is high especially in the main commercial centres and key business districts.

One example would be Makati, one of the most pedestrian friendly places in Manila is its one place best explored on foot.

photos taken by me!











The Makati CBD itself is one of the most pedestrian friendly places in Metro Manila with various elevated walkways and underpass.


if you go to the old Original downtown manila... it will be like this

NOIIICEE =] I guess i was mistaken lol thats super crowded!!.... maybe instead of light rail lines they could build heavy rail instead... its faster and can carry more people than light rails... HRT is usually a subway or elevated. The philippines looks like its in need of more transportation alternatives.... Just like we've learned here in California, expanding freeways and adding more car lanes doesn't help traffic.. we still have clogged ass highways.. so we turned back to mass transit... Its good that PI is extended its rail system... just hopefully they make it cleaner and more sophisticated looking... i think the older stations could use a renovation yes?
