The Manila Solar City is a proposed reclamation project that will be undertaken by the Manila City Government and the Manila Goldcoast Development Corporation.
The proposal is to reclaim 148 hectares of land located at the back of the Philippine Navy and Manila Yacht Club 600 meters towards the bay.
It will have a frontage of only 635 meters parallel to Roxas Boulevard, and occupying less than 0.082 percent of the bay’s 1800 sq. km. surface area.
Its boundary will be only up to the Ospital ng Maynila, a full kilometer from the US Embassy.
Just like the CCP complex, which includes the Philippine International Convention Center, Folk Arts Theater, Manila Film Center, Coconut Palace (which now houses the Office of Vice President), and Sofitel Hotel, the MGRP will not adversely affect the historic allure of the bay.
The proposed reclamation project will consist of three (3) reclaimed islands:
- East Island 1 which is closest to the Manila Yacht Club/ MYV (at 28.73 has.),
- East Island 2 (at 36.87 has.)
- West Island which is farthest from R-1 and MYC (at 82.40 has.)
