The location of the Post Office building in the Ermita district of the city east of Intramuros, was part of the plan of Daniel Burnham for the city of Manila, which placed the building on the frontage of the Pasig River for easy water transportation of mails. Its central location with converging avenues made the building readily accessible from all sides. The building's main entrance faces the Liwasang Bonifacio. The construction of this building started in 1936 under the supervision of the engineering firm Pedro Siochi and Company. It was finished before the outbreak of war in 1941. (en)
