Aseana LRT Station (formerly Redemptorist Station) [1] is a proposed stop on the Manila LRT (Line 1). It is part of the LRT Line 1 South Extension Project. The station would be the northernmost of the extension. It would be the twenty-first station from the northern terminus at Monumento. Although it is not totally located in Aseana City itself, it would be built in the Parañaque portion of Baclaran and would be named after Aseana City, a business district in the Paranaque segment of Manila Bay.

The LRT-1 plan calls for an almost entirely elevated extension of approximately 11.7 km. The extension will have 8 passenger stations with an option for 2 future stations (Manuyo Uno and Talaba), all intended to be constructed above-ground.[2]

Nearby landmarks[edit]

When completed, this will be the closest station to the Baclaran Church on Redemptorist Road. The church enshrines Our Lady of Perpetual Help, whose icon draws devotees every Wednesday for Mass and the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help. It will also be close to Aseana City, the DFA Consular Office, Neo-Chinatown and S&R Membership Shopping in nearby Bay City.

The station is also nearby the upcoming Ayala Malls Bay Area shopping mall and City of Dreams Manila, both located in the Pagcor Entertainment City as part of Aseana City.
