MANILA | One Central | 180m | 50 fl | 42 fl | Com

One Central
From the center of the Philippines’ premier financial district rises the ultimate address for those who enjoy the trappings of success. One Central, the grandest undertaking yet of top developer Megaworld Corporation for the most discriminating set of A-listers, sets the standard in high luxury living by being located in the last ultra prime piece of real estate in Makati. Architectural firm Preben Kent designed the P5.5-billion single tower of One Central, reminiscent of the iconic Empire State and Chrysler buildings in New York City.

A boomerang-shaped edifice with Art Deco inspirations, One Central is called such because it is the only one of its kind, and its central location speaks volumes about its accessibility and proximity to the most eminent business and leisure establishments. It is located at the junction of Sen. Gil Puyat Ave. and De La Costa and Geronimo streets, putting you at the center of the action yet cocooning you in your private nest of magnificence. Its 50- and 42-storey wings curve gracefully and changes hues from blue to blue green. Drama unfolds by nighttime when the building top with its unique details light up the skyline.

The beautiful exterior is a foreboding of more lavish experiences to come once you step inside. Gettys Chicago designed the glass-sheathed grand lobby with Old English paintings and an opulent chandelier that lends the same elegance and indulgence of Art Deco. A concierge is on hand to assist you with every request, from ordering flowers for a surprise dinner with your significant other, to reserving prime seats to a long-awaited musical play.

lol. I don't see any resemblance to Empire State and Chrysler, but it does not need to. The tower looks pretty good anyway.

it's just a PR from the developer. developers tend to exaggerate things, you know.
