Project Overview

The revitalization of Basco Street will be an innovation yet a conservative method to further enhance and uplift the glorious pride of the walled city, Intramuros. The group has taken the initiative to transform underutilized spaces and streets in Intramuros into a people-centric community wherein tourists and residents are encouraged to travel to their destinations by foot and that establishments will become more accessible to pedestrians.

The implementation of public spaces and amenities along Basco street is an initiative to promote walkability and pedestrianization within the walled city. It aims to become a tourist attraction and promote better spaces for the public. This redevelopment plan realizes the mission of Intramuros Administration as a future-proof livable city.
