3-story building to rise from ashes of Angeles public market

A three-story building will soon rise at the Pampang Public Market, catering to 200 stalls of fire-affected vendors, food court, and steel parking lots, officials said.

The city government under the leadership of Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. held a groundbreaking ceremony in late April to mark the start of the construction of the new building.

Lazatin said the new 200 stalls will be intended for the dry goods vendors of the market who were affected by a fire which broke out on November 2020.

City Engineer Donato Dizon shared that the soon-to-rise building will have steel parking lots on the second and third level, while the ground level is solely for the dry goods stalls and the food court.

Dizon said the side wing of the building will be intended for the food court of mini-eatery establishments or ‘carinderia’ scattered in the public market.

The city government has allotted P243.9 million for the project.

Among the works to be done for the building consist of demolition and disposal; structure and excavation; earth filling and compaction; structural concrete and structural steel and framing support.
