Manila business center to create 150,000 jobs – Lim

The ambitious plan to build the Manila Financial District may fall under the Private-Public Partnership Program (PPP) of the Aquino administration, Mayor Alfredo Lim said on Wednesday, adding that the project has attracted the attention of South Korean firms.


During an exclusive roundtable with The Manila Times, Lim said that the plan for the financial district was submitted to the Economic Cluster of the Cabinet for review and possible endorsement as a PPP project.

“We plan to finish the financial center by 2016,” Lim said. “The financial center is also expected to generate a minimum of 150,000 jobs with Manila residents as priority in the employment process,” he added.

    kaya ba ayaw ni MayorALim sa conversion ng Pandacan Oil Depot kasi may Manila CBD?
  • ^I am not sure about that. Pero this project is simply TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

    Pero, I am still hoping na totoo nga ito at hindi scam ni Lim for purposes of reelection.

    Environmentalists Oppose P14-B Reclamation Plan

    MANILA, Philippines --- Environmental activists have joined forces with thousands of residents in Las Pi?as in appealing to the government to drop permanently the implementation for a P14-billion reclamation project on a 635.14 hectare portion of the Manila Bay.

    Led by former Las Pi?as Rep. Cynthia Villar, oppositors of the project appeared in a House of Representatives inquiry into the serious environmental issue that is also the subject of a petition for writ of kalikasan granted by the Supreme Court on April.

    During the hearing conducted by the Committee on Natural Resources, Villar assailed proponents of the project for their failure to consult people to be adversely affected by the massive flooding and other serious environmental concerns.

    She called on the Lower House to immediately pursue legislative measures that would stop similar development projects that would result in serious environmental destruction in the long run.

    Earlier, Villar won a SC ruling that granted her petition for writ of kalikasan against the reclamation project.

    The hearings about Villar?s petition are still ongoing at the Court of Appeals (CA) where she took the court stand on October 12.

    Oppositors warned that the proposed Manila Bay reclamation project is expected to severely damage the 175-hectare mangrove forest and marine habitat at the Las Pi?as-Para?aque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA).

    They also noted that the project will impede on the natural river flow in Las Pi?as, thus, threaten huge areas of the city and neighboring localities with flooding.

    Threatened by flooding are at least 37 barangays in Bacoor, 11 in Para?aque, and 17 in Las Pi?as City, Villar said.

    The former lawmaker cited a study conducted by the Tricore Solutions, Inc., an independent hydrologist, that revealed that as many as 65 barangays in Las Pi?as City, Para?aque, and Bacoor will be submerged in floods with a depth of between 0.15 meter and 5.12 meters or equivalent to a two-storey building should typhoons with the same intensity and amount of rainfall as ?Ondoy? will take place in the future.

    Besides natural disasters such as catastrophic flooding, Villar said reclamation also adversely affect families who rely on fishing for livelihood as it demolishes fishing communities and causes the destruction of mangrove, where fingerlings thrive.

    Villar proposed the option of urban renewal instead of reclamation.

    ^ wrong post yata .... las pinas and not maynila.

    the only environment that area are the squatter colonies.






    question: where will they transfer the manila PIER? .... relocating it to batanggas would jack up the prices of commodities.

    Malabo itong matuloy. Nakakatakot dyan sa may bandang Pier halos lahat na ng klase ng masasamang tao ay nandyan na. Kung ipagpipilitan na itayo ang Manila Business Center dyan, dadanak ang dugo dyan mga ugaling handang pumatay pa naman mga nakatira dyan sa paligid ng Pier.

    Price will rise but it wont jack up. Also, its a good idea to remove the main pier in Manila. The trucks are not only causing troubles within the Metro but they are also troubled in getting into the Metro.

    Finally, relocating the pier will help in building up the economy where it will be relocated.

    It will be an issue if you want POLICE COVERAGE but it wont bee an issue if you simply want to reduce the incidence of crime.

    Hello private security slash private army! :D

    maybe during the construction, the people of maynila would benefit from the employment but will companies hire people from BASECo. remember, the employees working in the current CBDs are migrants or transcients.







    what happened to the manila river city project?
