Fairview Terraces reminds me of Trinoma to some extent.

Anyway, a development like this will bring more vibrancy and commercialization to Metro Manila's northeastern suburbs especially within the Fairview area.

And the area needs it.

10 to 15 stories would be better.

Anyway, it's Father Suarez's funds so he can spend it on the projects he likes.

Many Filipinos are still religious especially the older generation. And this project is sacred.

Are you talking about the statue or high-rise construction?

Honestly, the buildings surrounding Luneta are better off as mid-rise structures. High-rise buildings are better off built around Roxas Blvd excluding the reclamation areas.

It would be good to see some mid to high-rise public housing within Tondo pref 10 to 15 stories high.

As for the statue, yes it is better off built near CCP instead of Luneta or Tondo.

Finally a modernized football stadium for Greater Manila. And hope this will be the future home of Azkals.

We really need North Rail within that area so that those living in Manila's outer northern suburbs do not have to rely or cars or buses when traveling to the city.

agree ! manila is too congested dapat pa balikin ung mga urban poor in province or relocate in other cities .

Better kung mga 20 - 30storeys ang mga ipapatayo at gawing mga park ung mga natirang lot.

5 to 7 storeys would be ideal. Chicago's Cabrini Green were built of tall buildings and just became a den for gangs and criminals. People were afraid. It had to be demolished.

I think this project will not materialized because the statue is half naked. So I think many religious and conservative groups will condem this project.

Unfortunately, a large chunk of the country's economy are concentrated in Greater Manila followed by Greater Cebu.

Unless you have more investments happening in other Philippine cities.

But again, Metro Manila will remain the economic centre of the country and more and more will pour in.

And with too much congestion, Greater Manila is one of the largest in the world when it comes to population and density.

Cabrini Green was neglected especially by the official. The majority of it's residents are lower class African Americans which have a different mindset and attitude compared to Pinoys of the same status.

On the other hand, Food Terminal in Taguig is one of the largest public housing projects built by the government, along with the one in Sta. Ana, Manila.



It is a large 8 story building. But it has a cooperative and an organized community sort of a barangay in it's own. But it does not have much of the criminal activity that Cabrini Green had.
