The strength of Tondo comes from its people. The Tondo Community Redevelopment Project captures the town’s dynamic interactions and diverse activities into a 20,000 sqm mixed-use development. The project introduces copious green spaces to connect the community and to provide relief to the density of its vicinity. Divided into three clusters- learn, play and grow, the development stitches together Tondo’s programmatic composition into a vibrant mixed-use community.
The ground floor is a mix of different programs for community development. The library functions as a node to the existing TESDA building and the proposed youth center and community hall. The last cluster is built for budding entrepreneurs. The start-up tiangge, commercial center, and hawker center share a public space. In the start-up tiangge, young entrepreneurs from Tondo can rent a stall and benefit from the traffic of the commercial and hawker centers. Similarly, local food vendors can rent a space in the Hawker center.
Presenting a new way of living in Tondo, the housing towers benefit from the variety of retail, learning and community spaces below. Projected to house around 3,150 families, the development hopes to capture the strong sense of community that lives in Tondo.
