The iconic building of El Hogar, one of Manila’s remaining American-colonial era landmarks, is facing an uncertain future. Its tenants have been asked to leave by Feb. 20.

Manila with have to deal with so many changes after this new Skyway.
I remember when the LRT was being built in the middle of Rizal Avenue, businesses closed due to lack of accessibility. Skyway Phase 3 will take 2 years…
MANILA - A feared traffic Armageddon may begin tomorrow with the start of the construction of a major infrastructure project in Metro Manila.Well, 36 months of inconvenience for 25 years of smooth traffic in the Metropolis. We all have bitter pills to swallow, so I guess we should all start adjusting our trips…MRT, LRT and PNR could have been an alternative for long distance trips but meh. But we still have to see if the Pasig River Ferry system be revived.
What is wrong with the government and why do they proliferate the sale of cars? Making more citizens more private? Dios mio, that’s not Filipino culture! Filipinos have been always communal, yet our transportation systems really do say otherwise.
The advance work site of Skyway Stage 3 will be set up tomorrow on the center island of Osmeña Highway, from Buendia in Makati to Quirino Avenue in Manila, with the closure of two southbound inner lanes between F. Torres street and Arellano Avenue.
“The MMDA will also operate a ferry service on the Pasig River starting April until 2016 to help commuters.”
