well.. it's not very near pharoah... Makati Cinema Square is nearer...

last Friday we had lunch at Congo Grille Pasay Road which is just across the construction site.... it was my first time to notice that with Caltex gone.. that corner seems very big.... I'll try to take a picture of the site one of these days..

anyways.. are there any renderings available now?... the site doesn't have any renderings yet...

I don't think there is... because right beside it is the Island Tower (picture below) which I guess is about 25+ floors... and the Legaspi Place that was put on hold...

I was trying to search for one picture of GreyX (if I'm not mistaken) that was taken from Citiland, but can't find it... that shot had a view of where these twin towers will stand...

the Columns II will rise at the left of this picture

yup.. that's the one... you can see the Caltex station (two flat rectangular structure) between the flyover and the yellow building at the lower right corner of the picture.... the Caltex station is fully demolished now to give way to Columns II..

yup tried Grill55 once... and yeah.. with Caltex gone, many office guys who are on the Benevidez St and at the end of Salcedo had to walk to the corner of Paseo de Roxas to get public transport... because the buildings on Arnaiz doesn't want passerby to cross their buildings...

Immediate...as in my dad

Yeah, the location really sucks. Thats why we are moving it to SM Foodcourts. First off is SM Southmall. We have been getting a lot of good feedback from customers and many come back in numerous occasions. We also want to open one in SM Mall of Asia...but i think we are in the waitlist
