ARROCEROS REDEV PT II:
Status: Concept Done
The Riverfront Center sits alongside the Pasig River as part of the conceptual redevelopment of the Arroceros district. Complementing the Forest Center, the Riverfront center is central to the master-planned vision to reconnect urban life and economy to the city's natural features and waterways, which have been pushed aside in the urban agenda.
The proposed Riverfront Center revisits the Pasig River as the stage for new urbanism - a place for daily work, leisure, and economic activity for pedestrians and the community that shall serve as the model for like developments elsewhere in the city.
