Yes they did. This is obviously just a placeholder. The complex won't look anything like that.

That is NOT the official rendering. It is just to show where the locations of the telecommunications and observation tower, hotel, shopping mall and convention center are inside the complex. The tower will also include a disaster risk reduction management hub where the government will use its broadcasting facilities to send messages to all forms of media with regards to disasters. Our country is shifting to the Japanese ISDB-T standard this year and we will be having our version of J-Alert. The tower will also serve as a cell site for our 3 major mobile companies (Globe, Smart and Sun Cellular).

@moderators, kindly change the city to Manila. Thank you

They could have consulted a better illustrator even if its a sketch for such a large scsle project. The sky tree image definitely came from skyscraperpage.com

QC tower opposed

By Rio N. Araja

THE National Housing Authority on Wednesday questioned the Quezon City government over its plan to put up a 612-meter tower at the Manila Seedling Bank Foundation lot on Quezon Avenue corner Epifanio de los Santos Avenue.

General Manager Chito Cruz said he has been kept out of the arrangement with* Mitsubishi Electric Corp. to build the Philippine Diamond Tower worth P15 billion.

He said NHA would assert its right over the seven-hectare project site, adding a legal case is an option to prove its ownership.

Dr. Victor Endriga, senior adviser, said the 200-floor facility would join the league of Dubai’s 828-meter Burj Khalifa and Japan’s 634-meter Tokyo Skytree.

He said Megaworld Corp., Century Properties Group, SM Properties and Ayala Land Inc., wanted to buy the lot.

Japan plans to fund Manila “Skytree’ which is set to become the world’s 2nd tallest tower
Posted on February 17, 2016 by Ron E.J. Carleon

MANILA, Philippines – The Japanese government is reportedly contemplating on funding Philippine Diamond Tower – Manila’s answer to Tokyo’s Skytree; currently the world’s tallest tower and the second tallest man-made structure in the world after Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.

The proposal to build the Philippine Diamond Tower was unveiled back in July 2014 by Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista after Japan’s Mitsubishi Electric Corp. expressed intention to build the structure via a public-private investment fund.

But a recent report by The Japan News on February 15 disclosed that Tokyo’s Corporation for the Overseas Development of Japan’s ICT and Postal Services is considering investing in the ambitious project with local subsidiary as part of of its plan to establish a new entity together with the Japan Overseas Infrastructure Investment Corporation for Transport & Urban Development (JOIN).

The tower is scheduled to be completed in 2019 and will cost around JPY 1-billion (PhP 41.6-B) to build. Its planned height is 612-meters in honor of the Philippine Independence Day (June 12).

Once completed, the Philippine Diamond Tower will become the country’s tallest tower, and the world’s second tallest tower behind Tokyo’s Skytree whose height is 634 meters.

The structure will be constructed on a 7-hectare lot along Quezon Avenue and will be used mainly for telecommunication and observation purposes.

It will also house an international convention centre, a five-star hotel, a shopping mall, restaurants, a disaster-risk management centre and a garden park; plus an observation platform on top equivalent to the height of 200 stories.

“The primary objective for this tower is that it would play a crucial role in disaster management as the scope of the tower’s transmitters would allow it to cover 6 to 7 provinces on the island of Luzon — so they are easily able to communicate emergency broadcasts,” Mayor Bautista said an interview on April 2015.

Bautista added that the tower will also attract tourists as it will become a natural landmark in Metro Manila and is expected to put Quezon City on the global map.

However, Japan is expected to face serious competition from China which also expressed interest in bidding for the project.

That proposed site for the Philippine Diamond Tower is, actually, feasible. Given that it will be very close to multiple TV and radio stations, including those by ABS-CBN, PTV, and GMA, that tower will certainly help augment radio and digital transmissions from those stations (plus ABC, CNN Philippines, and many others) to the rest of Mega Manila. And by the way, it will also be a prominent landmark, much like Araneta Coliseum or Quezon Memorial Circle, that will bring in much more local and foreign revenue (from tourists). And, with its prime location close to MRT Quezon Avenue station and many shopping malls, this building will really draw a lot of crowds from all over the country, if not bring in more tourists from around the world.

Perhaps, if this is to be done, this could be the ultimate location for major events in Quezon City, from New Year's Eve through Independence Day and beyond.

Looks pretty dead did a check up on Google and nothing new about it there. And it seems to have been Mostly a pipe dream from the start. But as mentioned earlier interest from the Japanese Government could get this going if it happens but it hasn't come out any news since they considered it.

And also u cant earn enough money on the observation tower alone to cover the cost of building it. So unless someone is willing to spill the money for it, it will remain a dream. it could boost a city or area economically but that is Generally risky.

Quezon City is as much a part of metro manila as Makati is.

After two years, seems like there's no movement on this project.
