The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM) has selected the architectural conceptual design submitted by WTA Design Studio as the winning conceptual design for PSALM’s Diliman property. This is the culmination of a three-day rigorous selection process held from 03 July 2019 to 05 July 2019 at the headquarters of PSALM. WTA Design Studio’s conceptual design entry entitled “The East Grid” was selected for its multi-dimensional people-oriented concept of developing a new environmentally friendly business center that integrates energy efficient systems and innovative and sustainable design ideas. This design entry assimilates pedestrian friendly spaces, interactive installations, bike trails, green promenades, alfresco spaces, and play areas into a development that will ensure a net leasable space of about 400,000 square meters. This winning conceptual design of WTA Design Studio will be utilized by PSALM as the basis for the master planning and the privatization options for the Diliman Property, a 5.195-hectare asset of PSALM located at Quezon Avenue corner BIR Road, Quezon City.
The selection committee is composed of representatives from the United Architects of the Philippines, the Philippine Institute of Environmental Planners, the UP College of Architecture, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, the Quezon City Planning Development Office, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority, and officials of the Department of Energy and Department of Finance, and PSALM.Back
