The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) of the Philippines has begun construction of a new building project for the Manila Boystown Complex in Marikina City.

Recently, DPWH assistant secretary Antonio V. Molano Jr. and national capital regional director Nomer Abel P. Canlas, along with Manila City Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan participated in the ground-breaking ceremony for the facility.

The facility will benefit both the personnel and the Manila city government’s constituents.

Encompassing an area of 720m2 area inside the complex, the building will rise up to four storeys.

It will feature offices and 17-bed spaces along with private bathrooms.

It will also include a facility for storage, laundry, and kitchen areas, which can be used by Boystown employees.

The first two floors will be used as an evacuation centre to offer shelter to disaster-stricken families, while the other two floors will double as additional homes for the abandoned youth and elderly.

The project is being implemented by DPWH National Capital Regional Office, with funding worth $1.63m (PHP92m).
