'Ang Bagong Maynila'

The Manila Clock Tower, an iconic landmark of the country’s capital and known for the red-faced clocks on three of its six facets, got a face lift after the city government repainted it gold.


THE NEW MANILA CITY HALL TOWER

In a statement, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said this was done so the tower would sparkle during the day and give off a “calming effect” at night.

Employees of the city government also regularly check the tower to ensure that its three clocks always show the same time.

The Manila mayor said they will make more “improvements” to the clock tower as they are planning to make it one of the Philippine capital’s attractions.

Last year, the Manila LGU initiated to renovate the historical Jones Bridge. They also put vertical gardens along some known roads in the city.

The new Golden Manila City Hall Clock Tower is the biggest of its kind in the country. Standing at 100 feet, it was designed by Antonio Toledo and was completed during the 1930s.


These are just a few of 'Bagong Maynila' initiatives under Isko Moreno administration.
