An honest-to-goodness builder
OH YES, IT'S JOHNNY! - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - April 20, 2013 - 12:00am

Francisco “Jun” Madrigal Bayot Jr. is no stranger to real estate development. He is the grandson of well-known business tycoon and former senator Vicente Madrigal who was called the “Shipping King” and “Charcoal King” of the Philippines during his lifetime.  Jun is the man at the helm of Madrigal-Bayot Development Corporation (MBDC), the firm behind The Address at Wack Wack, a luxury boutique condominium being built in one of the best locations in Metro Manila.   MBDC is an affiliate of the Madrigal Bayot Group of Companies which counts sprawling premier residential and commercial developments such as the Madrigal Business Park, Corinthian Gardens and Ayala Alabang Village in its roster of real estate projects.  As the company president, Jun is very hands-on.  A higher standard of quality is assured as he personally handpicks every material and holds meetings every week to check on the progress. Jun took a personal interest in the development of the land that belonged to his grandfather, adopting a simple blueprint that epitomizes exclusivity, luxury and privacy that hark back to the era of gracious living marked by wide hallways and classic designs.  “I want it to reflect the old style, the way I grew up.”  For its signature venture The Address at Wack Wack, MBDC is working hand in hand with partners Jose Aliling and Associates for project management, Monolith Construction and Development Corporation and R.S. Caparros & Associates for structural consultancy, and architect Wilbert Tan for his minimalist design.  With his son Francisco T. Bayot (who shares his genes and vision) overseeing the marketing side, Jun is confident that his business concept of a value-loaded, no-waste and buyer-focused functional luxury comes to fruition.  Once completed.

Pastoral women

Languid Filipino maidens in native garb, with skin tones the color of chicos, living an unhurried life are the images in “Hiyas ng Lahi” exhibit by contemporary artist Remy Boquiren. Mounted by photographer Mandy Navasero at the LRI Art Pavilion in Bel-Air II, Makati, the show gathered art lovers and collectors like San Pedro, Laguna Mayor Calixto Cataquiz.  The Wednesday Art Group Marikina, where the artist is a founding member, and Remy’s old friends from the UST Fine Arts also came in full force. The exhibit also featured a performance by rocker Lou Bonnevie, which livened up the evening.  The event was a successful one for both the artist and first-time curator Mandy Navasero.
