Sulong Maynila is a vision of Manila’s future developed under the Office of Manila Mayor Joseph Ejercito Estrada together with WTA Architecture and Design Studio and Plaza + Partners. The project looks at the incredibly dense cityscape of Manila and focuses on 10 public sector initiatives to reinject a sense of growth and vitality into our city.
The vision proposes a refocusing of public sector projects in the most catalytic and substantial opportunities that can redevelop Manila’s touristic and historical image as the cultural heart of our nation. These 10 projects are game-changers and each one of them was chosen for their financial and immediate feasibility, as well as the impact they would have on both their locality and the city as a whole.
This video introduces the 10 initiatives and the redevelopment plans that we have developed for the city. They present to you our ideas for the future and shine a light on opportunities for us to build the future. Most importantly it shows us that Manila is not just the heritage and birthplace of our nation, but the future of every Filipino.
Collectively, The Sulong Maynila Urban Regeneration Plan has a synergistic effect in turning The City of Manila into the cultural and tourism heart of the nation. This proposal to renew and redefine Manila for the next generation seeks to strengthen and enrich our communities to create a healthier and more socially sustainable urban environment.
