PASAY | CCP Complex Redevelopment [mix]

Office complex to rise around Cultural Center
Manila Standard

THE plan of the Cultural Center of the Philippines to build a commercial complex around the main theater has attracted the interest of taipan Andrew Gotianun.

Filinvest Land Inc., the listed real estate arm of the Gotianun family, yesterday disclosed its interest in the redevelopment of the 62-hectare property, which is empty and being used mainly as a parking lot.

Filinvest Land told the Philippine Stock Exchange that it had been pre-qualified to participate in the bidding to turn the CCP complex into “a center for business and economic activity with arts and culture as a focal point.”

Nini Bactad, CCP consultant for the redevelopment, said the redevelopment called for the conversion of empty spaces into “cultural buildings and commercial establishments.”

“Our agreement with the developers is that there should be a 50-50 allotment, “ Bactad said.

“Half of the property would be maintained as open spaces.

“We do not want to obscure the view of Manila Bay, and that is why we want that half of the property to be open.”

Filinvest Land pre-qualifies to bid for CCP asset development
By Zinnia B. Dela Peña (The Philippine Star) Updated August 09, 2009 12:00 AM
Philstar.com

MANILA, Philippines - Filinvest Land Inc. (FLI), the property development firm owned by the Gotianun family, has pre-qualified to participate in the bidding for the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ (CCP) asset development program.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, FLI vice president and corporate information officer Apollo Escarez said the program involves the “redevelopment of CCP’s 62-hectare property into a center for business and economic activity with arts and culture as a focal point.”

The CCP was created in 1966 through Executive Order 30 with the purpose of promoting and preserving Filipino arts and culture.

Last February, the Court of Appeals prohibited the Pasay City government and Republic Real Estate Corp. from selling lots within the CCP complex after the government allegedly failed to pay reclamation costs.

CCP president Nestor O. Jardin said the CCP complex business and master plan was completed in November 2003 after the Supreme Court ruled that the CCP is the owner of the land in 2000.

Aside from the CCP, FLI was also tapped by the Cebu City government as its partner for the development of a 50.6-hectare lot at the South Road Properties.

Its joint venture proposal includes the purchase of a 13-hectare lot for about P2 billion and the development of 35-hectare lot across the prime property into a mixed-use commercial project which will have recreational facilities, residential condominium buildings and IT buildings.

FLI has set aside P5.3 billion for its capital expenditures this year or an increase of 29 percent from the previous year’s P4.1 billion. The money will be used to develop five to six mid-rise buildings, two BPO buildings, the first phase of the P25 billion township on a reclaimed land in Cebu City, and its first high-rise residential project called The Linear.

These projects will be funded using internally-generated cash and bank borrowings. The company has available bank lines of P3 billion.

The company is launching 29 new projects and phases this year, estimated to generate around P7.4 billion in sales across all market segments.

FLI plans to launch more phases in its ongoing mid-rise projects in Ortigas Extension and Marcos Highway in Pasig City, as well as in Davao and Cebu. It will also launch a similar project in Sta. Mesa, Manila.

For its socialized housing projects, the company is readying new projects within Ciudad de Calamba as well as new phases in existing projects in Batangas, Cavite, Tarlac and Pampanga.

actually, mas maganda pa rin kung anything cultural ang ilalagay sa CCP Complex... like a cultural museum...

well, ok din naman ang commercial structures dun.. especially since ang plano nila ay mag-center yun sa culture and arts... ok na rin..

EDIT: sana masunod pa rin yung master plan nila dated 2003... i've seen in once in a book being sold at a bookstore in Trinoma.. and it's a great design!

hopefully yun pa rin ang gawin nilang master plan...

i think kaya naman magtatayo ng business establishments and commercial centers is to generate funds to build more structures dedicated to arts and culture. win-win situation naman pagnagkataon. dapat lang aesthetically appealing yung mga buildings at in harmony with the designs of other establishments. bakit hindi kaya mala- Bonifacio High street na mall. tapos sa gitna mga art sculptures,monuments of famous artists etc. yung nakalagay? tapos yung mga restos may mga paintings at murals. with matching opera singers.. cool sana!

Commercial complex within the cultural center? Well, maybe, CCP could mean Commercial Complex of the Philippines. They bettter plan that well not to transform the cultural center complex into a chaotic complex. Offices can make the roads even more heavily congested. Hotels are okay, even though there is already one hotel within the area and one facing the CCP. Residential buidlings are questionable. It is a cutural center not a residential area. If they would erect residential condos not clad in glass, we would have a view of the cultural center with clothes hanging from floor to floor of these condos.

Pag naluma ang mga building, papangit na ang cultural. Also, there would be no more spaces for parking, badminton, tennis, biking, etc. We would have no more complex specifically designed as a cultural center.

Well, it's about time they renovate this place. The complex still has a distinct 1970s feel which haven't been improved nor updated this internet-driven generation. I remember we used to park on dark alleys of the CCP parking lot with some of my ex-girlfriends and only to be flash-lighted by security men everytime. I still remember the likes of Burt Bacharach playing his piano at the Folk Arts Theater in 1981, Sammy Davis Jr. singing Candy Man in 1977. The place still looks the same today since the 1980s. This is great news that Filinvest will developed the once glittering place visited by famous Hollywood celebs in the early 80s.

I agree that any commercial development should be kept at a minimum. It should be limited to souvenir stores inside museums and other educational buildings.

I agree; furthermore, they should just make a new Metropolitan Theatre(cause' the one in Lawton is already irreparable) or at least an "Iconic"(hate this word) Opera House the likes of which can rival at least "The Egg" of Beijing, or the one in Berlin. Make the complex more of a showcase of Philippine culture(not restricted to acquired/assimilated Spanish culture); although, it may be irrelevant to have another cultural "park" in this area cause' a few miles away, the BNP-MBIEC also features a cultural park...err...just make any renovation/development on the place...anything will count, except ugly. ^_^

Metropolitan is very repairable and they are lobbying it to be a heritage structure which is long overdue. How can you destroy the first art-deco structure in Asia?

^ It looks like Alfredo Lim has no plans to renovate the Metropolitan since it was one of Atienza's proposal. Ironically, it was Atienza who ordered the demolition of another art deco...the Jai Alai building.

not to be off-topic, I wish they could put up a monorail system or a cable car system like the one seen in Hong Kong (Ngong Ping 360) which links the Manila Ocean Park, the CCP Complex, Pagcor city, Newport city and the NAIA Terminal airports...now that would be one truly integrated tourism complex !

Guys, it seems that the CCP Complex needs more funding for its maintenance, so much so that they have opened doors for interested developers. It would be okay as long as the development would not ruin the cultural atmosphere of the place. I was at Harbour Square yesterday with my friends and we found out that the establishments lining there throw their waste water to the sea. You can see them flowing from breakwater holes. The sad thing is, the water being dirty, stinks. I wonder if Atienza and Lim or the CCP Complex management know that.

You can see and smell it very near the Dinner Cruises and Starbucks.

Hehehe, that would cost a lot of bucks that would certainly be an issue cause' let's face it...most Filipinos pretty much don't care about preserving architectural heritage (heck, look at Intramuros); but I agree that the current location is not condusive.

I share your sentiments; about the railways though, I think their is a proposed project about a monorail project on the Pagcor city from the Airport, a new railway track from the new DM International Airport to the metro, and some other new rail lines across the entirety of the capital region(read it from the railways etc. thread on this site also). Although the only monorail I read of is the one in Pagcor (hope they make the same as the one in KL).

Thanks for the pics.

Super ganda. I think the building in the middle is more beautiful than Sydney's Opera House and the lotus-inspired building in India.

The walkways are spectacular. There will be a marina? It will surely complement the current one. The ASEAN Park will be transformed into something new (I love the palms currently standing on it). The promenade will be wider. The esplanade near the Coconut Palace is nice.

Matuloy na sana without sacrificing the environment's safety.
