Baguio public market to become one of the most modernized markets in Southeast Asia



Cordillera - Baguio city residents and market vendors will have a reason to be proud off if the city government will pursue a massive development plan of the public market to become one of the most modernized markets in Southeast Asia. 

According to the official website of Baguio City, a total of P2.5 Billion is needed to fund the said development plan. 

The development plan includes modernizing the Magsaysay complex by building a 5 storey main market building with a basement parking area that can accommodate 635 slots.

Even the crowded Hilltop and Kayang offices will also be improved. There will be road links that connect the opposite sides of the market and elevated pathways so that people can walk comfortably.

A conceptual development plan has already been created and will be used  by the members of the technical working group (TWG) as a basis for a feasibility study but will first undertake further consultations, public hearings with concerned stakeholders and scoping sessions.

Magalong praised the group of young architects who came up with the beautiful design that will now serve as the basis for feasibility study for the project.

  2. Kudos to the present administration of Mayor B. Magalong for this long-awaited project. He is truly a warrior not only as ret. Police General but warrior of his vision to develop the city at its best. Baguio City is the summer capital of our country so it is only right to make the city be in his rightful place.

  4. Beautiful and modern but all i saw was massive buildings. Maybe the concept of green city can be incorporated to make it more environment friendly since we are obviously overly populated and we emit more carbon dioxide than our remaining trees can handle. Baguio was once the cleanest and greenest city i really hope we can get back that tittle someday. Let us all help save our environment as we progress forward.

  5. I hope they also study the impact on traffic, and the accessibility for the pedestrians and commuters. The road in and around the area should be improved first.

  8. I wish to see Baguio as a leading city of cleanliness, crime free , drug free, no smoke belching vehicles to render smog free city. A place for all vendors, and NOT to ply their wares along session road or the streets ,hampering pedestrians making a blight to the beauty of Baguio city and all over cordillera.

  9. For a modern market place , show casing Baguio as the best in Southeast Asia is a exciting , chest puffing while putting on the map our country for others to come and visit and imbibe the true pilipino in general and cordillera culture in particular . I doing so they’ll come and see all our corridors, passages, stairways alll jammed with our poor and needy cordillerans, begging for alms, poor children in rugged even tattered clothes , older men and women tagging your shirts asking for help. The city should do something for them .
