The flood event in January of this year forced the Pelaez Group to revise their planned Paseo del Rio Complex near Kagay-an Bridge. Still, the main attraction of the complex which is the Business Hotel and Convention Center remains.
Based on the new renderings, the underground shops at the Rodelsa Circle have been removed. The proposed hotel which was initially to be managed by Swiss Belhotel as stated in the internet, will be high rise approximately not less than 15 storeys with a helipad based on the perspective. Shops along the river were retained. A huge Convention Center will be built beside the hotel.
Palafox Associates are still the main architects with ESCA Inc. as engineering consultants. Hopefully, the project will start soon as this would certainly help thousands of workers during construction and moreso during operations.
Also, noticeably the proponent has been renamed Zealep Inc. instead of Gopel. Everyone knows Dra. Rafaelita Pelaez is now estranged from his husband so maybe they decided to drop the Golez from the Gopel and just spelled Palaez backwards.
Some beautiful nightshots of the proposed hotel and convention center.
