Pasig City Revolving Restaurant Renovation Ongoing


Wazzup Pilipinas!

"The city of Pasig is a highly urbanized eastern city found in the island of Luzon in the Philippines. It was once the capital of the province of Rizal before it became a part of the conurbation of cities that constitute Metro Manila, the country’s National Capital Region. It is surrounded by the cities of Quezon and Mandaluyong in the west, Marikina in the north, Makati, Taguig, and the municipality of Pateros in the south, and in the east by the municipality of Cainta in Rizal province. Flowing through it is the Pasig River that connects the Laguna Bay with the Manila Bay. Thus, the name Pasig, derived from a Hindu word, literally denotes a body of water connecting two bodies of water."

What is interesting to take note of today is that one of the historical structure is being renovated. We do not really know what the exact plans are but I read somewhere that they are planning to revive the restaurant.

The Pasig City Revolving Restaurant is one of the rare examples of Brutalist towers in Asia. It opened in 1974, offering panoramic views of the city with one revolution every hour. For some reason, it fell into disuse in the 1980s. It looks like a control tower of an airport.

It is currently being renovated right now as I write this article. I do not really know the details yet but I am aiming to find more information about it from the city government soon if they will allow me to interview them. 








I personally went to the site to inspect but the security would not allow me to take a peek inside since their supervising engineer was not around to approve. I plan to seek a request to visit the site as soon as my schedule becomes better.

To my knowledge, the only existing revolving tower that's working right now is the one at Eastwood in Libis Quezon city named MDC 100. On top is where Chef Jessie's restaurant called 100 is located and offers diners an amazing view of the cityscape. My family and I already had an opportunity to dine there thanks to Chef Jessie herself who invited us to try the restaurant after we met at an event in her other restaurant located in Rockwell of Makati city.

Going back to the Pasig City Revolving Restaurant, it would be nice if I will be allowed to go inside and inspect. I remember going up there a few years ago to visit one of the offices based there. But I never really got to the very top which is probably abandoned and unused for years.



I remember reading about some plans to revive the restaurant and even saw a couple of designs (as seen above) on how it will look like once completed. Hopefully I can schedule a visit to the insides of the structure soon.

It is said that the structure has 13 floors so some are saying it's bad luck. The tower can't support larger elevators that can hold more than 13 people. I would really like to know if the elevator is still working, are they going to replace it with a new one, or they would just ask the people to use the stairs.

I am sure that the architects and engineers have contemplated on questions regarding the durability and integrity of the structure. Will the revolving capability of this structure still work? We would love to see the launch once they've completed renovation. I will be among the very first to step in and try it out. It would be really thrilling to take photos to document the interiors and several shots of the view of the areas down below from above the revolving tower.
