Manila Bay Gets a New 318 Hectare Tourism Hub Called 'Manila Waterfront City'


Manila Bay is getting a new multi-billion peso reclamation project called "Manila Waterfront City'.  The new city opens a 318-hectare tourism hub to be situated in Roxas Boulevard's shorelines. The project is still in the documentation stage but should be able to start construction by 2020.

According to, a Memorandum of Understanding or MOU has already been signed by Mayor Joseph Estrada with Philippine Reclamation Authority General manager Janilo Rubiato, Chairman of the Board Alberto Agra, and Waterfront Manila Premier Development Inc. President Kenneth Gatchalian. This will not only boost the tourism in the city but also increase the demand for jobs, business opportunities and revenues to the Filipino people.

The soon to be tourism hub will showcase commercial centers, entertainment venues, high-end hotels and even residential buildings. It will also feature a medical center, government branches, amusement parks, schools and a lot more. But what really sets this new island apart from its surrounding cities is that it will have its own international cruise ship port.

Gatchalian also mentioned that the new city aims to promote environment-friendly projects so it will have its own park, open and green spaces. WMPD chairman Segio Ortiz-Luis Jr. said it will be a "breathable city" However, the new project requires a year and a half of planning and completing all the necessary documentation so they can't start before 2020.

This isn't the first multi-billion project that Mayor Estrada has approved in his current term. Just recently he approved "The Horizon Manila" which is a construction of three islands in the border of Manila-Pasay. And before that, the Mayor also approved a 148 hectare "Solar City" that will also take place in Manila Bay and will also showcase residential and commercial properties.
