Buildings in Escolta st. - Feast of the Black Nazarene 2015 part 3


My tummy starts to crumble because its past lunch time. I walked down to Escolta st. as my short cut going to Binondo st. Walking in Escolta is like a travel to the past. Old buildings with designs that dated 1920-30s. Some buildings are controversial like the El Hogar building that was scheduled to be demolished but now its on hold because many people are against it because the art designs and the building is a heritage structure that needs to be preserved.
I also heard that the entire Escolta st. is now being sold… omg. I hope its not true
here in my post, I like to feature some of the awesome vintage building designs that erected even before the world war 2. and yeah..they survived the war and they are the witness to the past of Old Manila.

Natividad Building
impressive ha… some of the buildings are newly painted
just in time for the feast


And here’s the City College Institute building that was on fire few days ago
I’m glad that its an abandon building before it was on fire.
But..sayang yung building. and this is scheduled for demolition
hmm sinadya kaya yung sunog?

One last look…


The UFO shaped building…. The Commercial Bank & Trust Company Building
