This land preparation in Lapasan began in the second half of 2011 and has been going for several months now until they finally demolished the lone edifice along CM Recto Avenue exposing the vast space.
As shown in the map below, the site which has an approximate area of 1.5 hectares has been idle for quite sometime until UKC Builders started levelling, earthfilling and compacting the site last year.
With the structure along the highway now gone, you can see the potential of this site which is now fully enclosed by 6-feet high perimeter fence. I couldn’t take pictures of the site last year because it is located in the interior.
During the earthworks last year, you cannot really see what’s going on except if you climb atop a truck or at D’Morvie Suites.
Considering its proximity to the commercial business district, development of this space is inevitable.
