MANILA — It’s all systems go for the construction of the city’s sixth major high-rise housing project otherwise known as Manila’s 20-storey San Sebastian Residences in Quiapo, following the groundbreaking ceremony Monday, 06 Sept. 2021 attended by high-ranking officials of the city led by Mayor Isko Moreno.
“Walang magiging iskwater sa Maynila pagdating ng panahon. May awa ang Diyos. Nagawa ng ibang bansa, nagawa nila, kaya rin nating magawa dito sa Lungsod ng Maynila,” Domagoso said.
According to the Mayor, the city government will not stop giving dignity to those in need while also addressing other concerns like the sweeping Covid pandemic.
The statement of Domagoso was echoed by Manila City Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan as she said that having his or her own house increases the dignity of the people.
“Kinikilala natin ang karapatan ng bawat nilalang na magkaroon ng ligtas, disente, at abot kayang tuluyan na matatawag nilang sariling pag-aari—dahil tinataguyod nito ang dignidad ng tao,” she said.
The San Sebastian Residences will cater to about 243 families in its 40 square meters unit.
It will have the following amenities: 243 residential units, 58 parking slots, health center, police substation, four elevators for residential units, swimming pool, function room, fitness center, the roof garden at the 20th-floor roof deck, three units of rentable space, activity areas at 6th, 10th, and 14th floors, roof deck play area at 18th floor, and roof garden.
“Bilisan natin ang kilos, iisang bangka tayo. Sama-sama tayong maglalayag sa alon, unos, sa gitna ng karagatan, ngunit hindi tayo titigil,” Domagoso said.
“Lalakbayain natin at kakaharapin natin ang lahat ng hamon na ito, hamon ng ating buhay at sigurado ako ang committment namin kayo kasama niyo kami sa barkong iyan. Hindi namin kayo iiwan,” the Mayor added.
