A few months ago when this site was being prepared for construction, I had no idea what it was going to be. I was guessing it may be a school, a new company, or even an extension to the Marikina Hotel.
It's kinda taking shape now and when I checked out the sign in front, it says that the building being built is a proposed convention center. There's no completion date written but from the looks of their pace, it seems that it may open some time this year.
That's exciting cause I don't think there is any convention center yet here in Marikina City. And its location just right beside the Marikina Hotel is ideal cause they could complement each other. Convention attendees can easily check in to the hotel for convenience.
I think this will be a fine addition to Marikina's establishments.
