What i hate about a lot of philippines development is all the residential towers have gate access only... that is BAD BAD BAD AND POOR urban planning... you want to open up all the streets to the public instead of keeping everyone out except for a select few... the gates just cause a barrier for the pedestrian activity.. You don't see things like this in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, London, Chicago, Tokyo, Berlin etc etc etc... and thats why they have such vibrant areas EVERYWHERE and not just a few places in the city.

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.

sirang plaka na, it will be nice... sorry.. but most equatorial cities will never be like mid-latitudes like "New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, London, Chicago, Tokyo, Berlin"


..you have to be realistic... next time compare Manila to other cities in the SEA region or in the tropics at least... ie Jakarta, Bangkok, or Kuala Lumpur

if you keep having unrealistic expectations then you will keep having disappointments

Proposed manila financial centre

Early birds flock to Comelec; businessman is first bet for Quezon City mayor


By Jeannette I. Andrade
Philippine Daily Inquirer
11:13 pm | Monday, October 1st, 2012


......... In Manila, Mayor Alfredo Lim, who is running for reelection, talked at length on Monday about the planned $4-billion financial center he wants to leave as his legacy to the city.

After a Mass held at the Bulwagan Gat Antonio J. Villegas in City Hall and before he filed his COC in the Comelec office, Lim told his supporters that the center, which would rise on a 96-hectare reclaimed area, would surpass that of Makati City.

According to him, 90 hectares would be used for the Global Financial Hub under the Manila Bay South Harbor Expanded Port Zone Project while the rest would become the site of 30-story condominiums where slum dwellers in Baseco would be relocated.

“I don’t talk a lot, I just work and when everything is in place, that’s when I tell you about it,” Lim told his supporters and other local candidates.

The financial center project, which will take about five years to complete, is expected to begin construction in November, Lim said. It will generate 150,000 jobs and an additional two million tourists per year. A 101-story building—the tallest in the country—is included in the plan.

After unveiling his plan, Lim—who was referred to by his supporters as a real Manilan, a swipe at his toughest rival for the post, former President Joseph Estrada—then walked to the Comelec office on Arroceros Street together with his running mate, Councilor Lou Veloso, and their supporters...........

Merry-Go-Round
Dream City

By FLORO L. MERCENE October 7, 2012, 7:32pm


.........The crowning glory of this proposed project, which would consist of a cluster of skyscrapers, would be a 101-story building that would rival Taipei’s “101,” the tallest structure in Asia. Surrounding this imposing structure would be clusters of equally impressive buildings that would rival Makati and Fort Bonifacio and hopefully, bring back to Manila its former glory as the country’s pre-eminent and most cosmopolitan city.......

..........The financial center would house commercial and residential units, including the 101-story building, which would be the tallest in the country, although there is possibility that another floor would be added to make the super skyscraper 102 stories high, and beat Taipei’s claim as the highest in Asia
.......

http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/376254/dream-city



may bago ... sa november na daw simula; ire-relocate na ang mga taga-BASECO magiging 90 hectares na at ira-rival na ang Taipei 101 ... hehe si Lim talaga (talagang sabay na sabay sa pag-file ng COC)
Sana!

unfortunately, trees around BGC are still young.

Complaining about how hot and uncomfortable to walk in BGC? Where in the world is Philippines geographically located? Common sense will tell you that we will never experience such winter/autumn/spring seasons.... I love the weather in Philippines.... Missing it so much!

There is another large scale business district in Manila which has several broad avenues lined up with fully grown trees and with wide pedestrian sidewalks as well . The place is Filinvest City in Alabang , Muntinlupa City. However, the district has only several buildings though from time to time there are simultaneous constructions of mid-to-high rise buildings but not as many as those in other business districts as Makati, Ortigas or BGC .
Nowadays , though they are beefing up the area with various developments . It has a top-notch infrastructure combined with its massive greeneries which are well maintained and in the future , it will be a very ideal and environmentally breathing business district . It is really a breeze walking through those magnificently tree line broad avenues .

Ito ang tamang example ng pagbabalance ng modernization at nature, halos lahat ng street sa Filinvest City ay tadtad ng palm at date palm trees. Hope other business district can do the same thing as Filinvest in terms of greeneries of road/sidewalks.....
