I agree, the proposed location is really.. er... far. Even local tourists won't bother going there.

I'm wondering about the "blueprint" that was supposedly shown to Mayor Bistek by Mitsubishi... was it a literal blueprint or a collection of documents that describes what Mitsubishi is planning to do? What's even more discombobulating is that the article said, and I quote
Quote:
"Mitsubishi showed Bautista a blueprint of its plan to transform the Manila Seedling Bank property"
.

Really? Blueprint of its plan? Wouldn't saying "details of its plan" or... ah never mind.

Anyway, as a resident of the city, I do hope that this one pushes through. I'm sure it's going to contribute a lot to the city's progress. But then again, the traffic problem in that area could worsen because of it unless they do something about it right away.

Seedling bank gives way to business district. MANNY PALMERO

The Quezon City government on Tuesday took control of the Manila Seedling Bank Foundation on Edsa and Quezon Avenue after the one-year redemption period for auctioned properties expired on July 6.

Aldrin Cuña, Mayor Herbert Bautista’s chief of staff, said Elmo San Diego, Department of Public Order and Safety head, and QC Police chief Mario de la Vega, along with 100 officers, served the notice of forfeiture on the management of Manila Seedling over its failure to settle its unpaid real-estate tax of P57.208 million in the past 10 years.

He said Lucio Bertol, the foundation’s president, was given the chance to redeem the property sold to the city government on July 6, 2011 until July 6 this year, to no avail.

The National Housing Authority owns the 6.9-hectare prime property being leased to the Manila Seedling since 1977, Cuna said.

Bertol and other foundation officials could not be reached for comment.

Mayor Herbert Bautista said the foundation was not exempt from tax payment since the privilege has been withdrawn when the 1991 Local Government Code took effect.

In August 2010, the Supreme Court first division ruled for the city, denying the petition for review on certiorari filed by the foundation.

The high court resolved “to deny the petition for failure of petitioner (Manila Seedling) to sufficiently show that the Regional Trial Court committed any reversible error in the challenged decision and order as to warrant the exercise of this court’s discretionary appellate jurisdiction.”

The property was out on the auction block on July 6 last year over its non-payment of P57.08 million in tax arrears from 2001 to 2011.

Cuña said the property will be absorbed by the P22-billion joint venture of NHA and Ayala Land Inc. to develop the 29.1-hectare property in North Triangle into a central business district.

“A high-rise convention center will be put up in the area facing Edsa,” he told Manila Standard.

City administrator Victor Endriga earlier said Japan’s Mitsubishi Electric Corp. wanted to buy the seven-hectare property for P100,000 per square meter to put up the second tallest tower in the world, next to Tokyo’s 634-meter Sky Tree.

The MSBFI is a botanical tourist attraction in Quezon City with more than 70 botanical nurseries of different plants, including rare and exotic varieties.

A member of the International Society of Arboriculture, it is a non-governmental organization founded in 1977 initially as a seedling producer.

I holding my excitement until i see some actual construction. This is one of those hyper advertised project that often never see the light of day. IMO this is just a news article created to make some noise for mitsubishi and other entities for some reason or another. Its just too far fetch. It made no mention on how mitsubishi woule be able to recover the cost of construction at all.

Seedlings, not buildings! Kalikasan Partylist decries QC gov’t takeover of EDSA botanical nursery


Sun, 07/15/2012 - 08:00 -- webadmin
Press Statement
15 July 2012

Earlier this week, the Quezon City government took over the seven-hectare Manila Seedling Bank Foundation compound along EDSA corner Quezon Avenue, allegedly due to the former’s failure to settle unpaid real estate tax obligations. According to the QC government, the lot will eventually be used for a high-rise commercial center facing EDSA, which developers claim will be the “second tallest tower in the world.”

Kalikasan Partylist decries this move by the QC government to eliminate another of the city’s few remaining green spaces. For decades, this seedling bank has given urban residents access to seedlings of native or fruit-bearing trees, vegetables, herbs and ornamental plants. It is located right beside the 20-hectare Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center, which is a sanctuary to many floral and faunal species (including native plants), a place for families and citizens to enjoy nature in the heart of the city, and a source of many other ecosystem services. Together, these two places are a pair of “green lungs” in the middle of the congested city space.

We oppose the plan to convert the remaining green areas in Quezon City into commercial business districts (CBDs). This pursuit of profit has already resulted in the unjust displacement and attempted demolition of urban poor communities in order to make way for giant malls. Already, these commercial complexes cause heavy traffic, especially along choke points such as EDSA, Quezon and Mindanao Avenues. Now, government and private developers want to convert our precious remaining green spaces into similar areas.

What will be next? Pushing for the transfer of government offices (such as the Philippine Science High School, the Philippine Children’s Medical Center and the Office of the Ombudsman) to make way for even more commercial expansion? Promoting more development for the primary benefit of foreign investors, at the expense of communities and nature?

The government and the residents of Quezon City should exert efforts to preserve these urban green spaces. We urge the city government to rethink its development plan. It should integrate the need for green spaces and the housing and economic well-being of its poor residents before diving headfirst into commercial expansion. We don’t want to be surrounded by more high-rise buildings, rising poverty, demolitions, and lifeless concrete jungles. Let these areas for trees remain: save the space for seedlings, and not buildings.

seedlings or 2nd tallest in the world

I think eto ang pinaka-concern nung group na ito kaya ayaw nila iredevelop yung place...

I agree...if we want to keep the Manila Seedling Bank... well.. we need an investor to take over it and maybe relocate it within the green areas planned in the CBD plan...

There are still a lot of green areas in QC. It's high time that this space be put into better use. Some people really are not vissionaries. They are a people of veted interests.
