REVIVING LUNETA

Beautiful old Luneta Hotel
T. M. Kalaw Avenue
Manila


This old building is one of the few remaining structures that survived World War II, has been undergoing “structural rehabilitation and retrofit” since it was bought by Beaumont last August 2007.

Completed in 1918, the Luneta Hotel was designed by Spanish architect-engineer Salvador Farre, according to a study by Dean John Joseph Fernandez of the University Of Santo Tomas College Of Architecture.

This is a development I am really looking forward to. I almost thought we lost this fine piece of architecture to a wrecking ball!

Keep us updated on this, alright?

Cheers!
