Pateros and Taguig City

Our future CBD!! It currently has less than 10 highrises/skycrapers which are all residential. This well planned city of the future should boom in a few years time.

Oh... I got it from I.M. Pei website. He was the architect right? I couldn't find any pictures. Are the Essensa Towers fully occupied? I want a unit!!! Hahaha... Love the design. Very unique - like all of IM Pei's other works.

I dont know if it is fully occupied, but it is occupied. IF you want a unit, you would have to have lots of $$$$.... And i think all units are sold. Yes, IM Pei's buildings are gorgous.

haha...ok, u want a unit at the penthouse? a 4-bedroom unit costs about Php 54 million. i think One Roxas Triangle is almost as expensive as that. the difference is...Essensa was sold out, ORT was not.

Sayang naman ang ORT. It's such a wonderfully designed building. If its twin was built, they would have been a nice set of twins.

hmmm...thats good. But too bad they wont build ORT II.

As you can see in the masterplan, only a little of BGC will be high rise residential. Most of it is mixed use, which is mostly skyscraper offices.

Just to get this thread moving, here are some of my old BGC pictures.




ewww..look at McKinley's ugly side!!

Ortigas Center from BGC

i wonder when we'll start seeing tall skyscrapers, not just One Mckinley and Pacific Plaza, in BGC.

what was the building beside Essensa?

Is the Pricesmart in BGC a temporary structure?? It kinda does look like one, but i doubt it is. I'm asking because it is right in the middle of BGC and might ruin the future outcome of the skyline.

it's a warehouse type of thing. Like most of the Costco's in Canada and the U.S.

it can easily be torn down, I guess... but I think lotsa people wanna keep it there....
