First United Building (FUB), home to the Bank’s legacy branch, UCPB Escolta, was recently honored with a historical marker by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP). NHCP Deputy Executive Director Carminda A. Arevalo unveiled the historical market during the building’s 90thAnniversary celebration on October 16, 2018.

Ang Gusaling Perez-Samanillo ay dapat pangalagaan at ituring na isang yaman ng bayan. Ang NHCP bilang isang instrumento ng pamahalaan upang kilalanin at protektahanang mga pook at instrukturang Pilipinas ay kumikilala sa mga gusaling may mahalagang ginampanan sa pag-unlad ng ating pambansang kasaysayan. Ang mga gusali ng Escolta ay saksi sa mga mayayaman, masasaya at pati na rin ang di gaanong masasayang bahagi ng ating kasaysayan,” Deputy Executive DirectorArevalo said.

Constructed in the 1920’s, FUB is one of the oldest buildings in Escolta. Currently home to several commercial establishments as well asan art hub, FUB was formerly known as Bergs Department Store before Mr. Sy Lian Teng bought the building’s ground floor in 1951. It is currently managed by Mr. Sy Lian Teng’s son, Mr. Roberto Sylianteng.

Mr. Roberto Sylianteng said that the historical marker is a reminder to preserve the memories of the last 90 years. “It can be a challenge but I’m very hopeful that with the help of our volunteers and the cooperation between private space owners and the public sector, we will be able to achieve a happy union among the past, present and future.”

UCPB Escolta is an example of the perfect fusion of the past and present. Inaugurated asa legacy branch during the Bank’s 53rdanniversary, UCPB Escolta was renovated to recapture the old look of the original head office in FUB. The branch still exudes old worldélan with wooden interiors and the traditional teller’s booths made of wood-framed glass panels.

“We are proud to be part of Escolta’s rich history. As UCPB’s first branch, we’re honored to provide our personal and proactive service to both our longest-standing clients and new clients for many more years to come,” UCPB Escolta Branch Manager Ana Bunagan said.
