MEGAWORLD Corp. has launched one of its most expensive addresses in the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) to date named the Uptown Ritz, which is expected to rake in P4.5 billion in revenues for the listed property developer.

Maricor M. Manlangit, Megaworld first vice president for strategic planning, said construction of the 45-story condominium is expected to begin before the end of the year, while

completion is targeted in June 2017.

The Uptown Ritz, Manlangit said, is the second project that Megaworld has launched in its 15-hectare Uptown Bonifacio integrated development.

“The average price of the units is P135,000 per square meter. The unit sizes range from 78 square meters to 182 square meters, which means the lowest priced unit will be about P11 million,” Manlangit said.

Taguig City holds Banak Festival 2012

Standard

TAGUIG CITY, July 27 (PIA) — Taguig City held a 10-day, July 17 – 26, festival known as the “Sta. Anang Banak Festival,” a city-wide celebration considered as the city’s most important historic and cultural event.

A press statement from the Taguig City government said the feast is done to honor the town’s patron Saint Anne, who according to legend, gathered the citizens of “taga-giik” (origin of Taguig) along the riverbank.

In 1587, legend says farmers lost all their harvests and the town was in crisis. Saint Anne, with his little girl Mary, led them to the river where they found it teeming with banak (a local fish). Every July of the following years, the river would be filled with fishermen.
