Lolz I am not torre de Manila agent. I am actually an American college student who married a Filipino man. I fell in love with the Phils and we travel back several times a year. I just haven't quite got the hang of posting here, this is only my third post. I have to say in my opinion I think the building is really classy, but I always have been a sucker for art deco.

Interesting page on the city of Manila and the art deco. Gives me a new list of places I need to go see.

Lawl, youre so funny.. and desperate at the same time. Unless DMCI changed the design and make Torre a 150-storey condominium (3x as big), I would say that your render is extremely inaccurate.. But still funny though....ROFL..

After a mathematical analysis of the angle of elevation, given the distance of Torre from the monument and its actual height and location, I have concluded that the previous photo renderings were inaccurate. I've provided renders very close to how Torre will be seen from the Rizal Monument in Nov 2016. I can provide you my computations if you guys wanna see it.

haha sales agents in defense, now your very own render is also inaccurate?


it looks like torre de manila is now just a midrise ... the school building is only a couple stories tall & you can see it quite clearly torre de manila is 40+ storeys

If you wanna dispute math and my computation then you are welcome to provide some of yours. We will see how it fairs with the computations Ive posted. And for the record, I am an engineer and I work abroad and definitely I am no DMCI agent, get your facts straight dude so that you dont sound sillier than you are.

Key Formula used: Pythagorean Theorem, Trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA), Angle of Elevation

Given :
Height of Torre = 165 meters
Distance of Torre and the monument = 789 meters
Distance of the camera from the monument = 20 meters
Height of Camera = 5'6" = 1.67 meters

1. Using the Pythagorean Theorem formula we can solve for the Hypotenuse.
Formula : C^2=a^2+b^2

= (789+20)^2 + (165-1.67)^2
C = 825 meters

2. Using Trigonometry we can solve for the Angle of Elevation using the height of Torre and Hypotenuse.
Formula : Sin (Angle of Elevation) = Opposite / Hypotenuse

Angle of elevation = Arc Sine (Opposite / Hypotenuse)
Opposite = Height of Torre - Height of the camera = (165-1.67) = 163.33 meters
Hypotenuse = 825 meters

Angle of elevation = ArcSine (163.33/825)
=ArcSine (0.1978 )
=11.4083 degrees

3. Using tangent formula (Tangent (Angle of Elevation) = Opposite / Adjacent)
Opposite = Height of Torre as seen from the camera = ?
Adjacent = distance of Camera from monument = 20 meters
Angle of Elevation = 11.4083
Tangent (11.4083) = Height of Torre as seen from the camera / 20 meters

Height of Torre as seen from the camera= Tangent (11.4083) x 20 = 4 meters

4. In comparison to the height of the monument = 12.7 meters, the height of Torre is almost half of the monument' s height 20 meters away from it.

height = 165m

Mike, it is not even Sta Isabel building but rather the Integrated Research Training Center (IRTC) of TUP, I figure that Anak_mm would do anything to discredit Torre however it is clear that most of his stuffs against Torre have loopholes.

He has that right Dinzhaper, all I could say is if Manila has a plan of re-/developing its city, DMCI Homes is already starting to go along fine with it.

And, very nice math.

Dinzhaper, actually, the distance of Torre De Manila from rizal's statue is 870 meters. That would mean that Torre de manila will look smaller than your render. I take your renders more accurate because it includes mathematical computations, than those other pictures showing around.

I think this tower is not an eyesore but rather a representation of how progressive our country is.

The Torre de Manila is a deviation in a historical landscape that ruins the sightline of the Rizal Monument in nearby Luneta Park. It is also alleged to have violated building and zoning regulations. In June 2015, the Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order on this tower's construction.

The question is: Why allow the construction of a skyscraper in this area in the first place? I think this is just a consequence of Manila being one of the world's most overcrowded megacities. So will the Torre de Manila open the door for more skyscrapers in its vicinity?
