Beauty and Elegance In History And Architectural Landscape

Find the perfect condominium in Taft Manila for youOriginally called Calle Rizal, the construction of this famed avenue was completed in 1899. Its northern terminus then was at Padre Burgos Street while the southern terminus was Pedro Gil, which was formerly known as Calle Herran. Calle Rizal was extended in 1911 and was renamed Manila Road. It was in 1915 when it was first renamed Taft Avenue. Since then it was renamed several times until officials back then finally decided to stick with the name Taft Avenue.

Taft Avenue’s history has as much beauty and elegance as the buildings and institutions that dot it now as they did back then. Some websites and Facebook pages even go on a nostalgic overdrive by posting old photos of what Taft Avenue looked like back then. If you take a retro trip down Taft’s memory lane decades ago, you could see how much the landscape has changed since then.

Architectural masterpieces such as the modern art deco Manila Metropolitan Theater, the Manila City Hall building, Plaza Lawton, Cathedral of the Holy Child, the World Health Organization building, the Manila Jai Alai, Philippine General Hospital, De La Salle University, Philippine Women’s College (now University), the Tomas Mapua Mansion, and Cartimar Market are just some of the oldest structures that were built facing Taft Avenue. They were witnesses to the evolution of Taft Avenue’s landscapes and how the current skyscrapers that dot one of Manila’s busiest thoroughfares have changed the dynamics of today’s Taft Avenue.

 

A Microcosm of the Country’s Quest For Progress

Amazing Condo for Sale in Taft ManilaFrom horse drawn carriages to bicycles and jeepneys and buses all the way to an elevated rail system, millions of people (probably even a billion) have traversed and set foot on one of the country’s famous thoroughfares. For some historians, Taft Avenue has a longer and more exciting history than EDSA, which has become quite famous for the People Power Revolution of 1986. It bridges not just the cities of Manila, Pasay, and Paranaque, but the country’s relationship with the United States. Taft Avenue was named after US President William Howard Taft, who also served as America’s former governor-general of the Philippines when the country was under US rule in the early 1900s.

Today, some people see Taft Avenue as a microcosm of the country’s quest for progress and development. The changes in its architectural landscape say much about how the Philippines has evolved over the course of its history. There are dozens of banks, restaurants, hotels, government offices, hospital facilities, churches, schools, residential condominiums, offices, and just about every imaginable establishment you could think of that line Taft Avenue today. While Manila’s thoroughfare is just as chaotic as EDSA during the rush hour, some find beauty in that chaos. A conundrum, perhaps, of a dynamic interplay that involves the country’s past, present, and future.
