Update on the 30-storey City Center at the back of the Community Amphitheater indicate it will reportedly push through after almost all of the affected families in the Chavez Lot have been duly compensated.
The property adjoins the Golden Mile project of the city. In earlier articles, it was learned the supposed skyscraper will be built by a Korean firm in coordination with the city who now owns the property. Accordingly, each household will vacate the lot during site clearing activities. The structures will be demolished afterwhich civil works will be initiated.
As envisioned and stated in previous announcements by then Mayor Constantino Jaraula and unless there will be changes, the 30-storey skyscraper will house the local tourism office in the ground floor with some commercial spaces, and condotel in the upper floors. A large pineapple will be at the top of the building, a much popular symbol of the city when whitewater rafting wasn’t discovered yet.
Hopefully, we may finally see a true tower at the heart of the city. With Limketkai and Pelaez Group building their own high-rise hotels, the city’s urban landscape will never be the same again. 🙂
