The Quezon City, Philippines government plans to revitalize the Maginhawa Street arts and food hub.
The revitalization plan, provided for under Ordinance 2559 – 2017, underscores the need to support the development of the Maginhawa Art and Food Hub, in terms of site development, security and other improvements to foster growth and progress.
The ordinance was approved by Mayor Herbert Bautista on February 16, 2017. The Maginhawa Arts and Food Hub covers the 2.2 kilometer-stretch of Maginhawa Street up to V. Luna Extension, including the adjacent Malingap, Magiting and Mayaman streets.
The measure, principally authored by Councilor Allan Benedict Reyes, seeks to amend Ordinance 2439 which declared Maginhawa Street and its adjacent streets as a tourism district. “With Maginhawa Street and the streets adjacent to it becoming one of metro’s top art and gastronomic destinations, it is but proper and fitting for the city government to support the area in terms of site development, security and other improvements to foster growth and progress,” Reyes said.
