The Riviera Hotel, Paseo del Rio’s hotel component in the mixed-use development project of the Pelaez Group is rising steadily.
The two lower floors of the 18-storey building was affected by the Sendong flood but latest updates revealed no traces of the tragedy last December 2011. As shown in the photos, workers are now working on the 3rd and 4th floors with the southern end of the building rising faster. Work resumed a few weeks after the clearing operation and at the rate of construction, topping off is estimated to be in 6 or 7 months or safe to say within the year.
