I am kinda disappointed at the lack of megatall projects in the Philippines, especially considering most of Asia, even South East Asia, mostly have megatall projects way past 612m, and they will be actual buildings. Not just some barebone structure with a watchtower at the top

That probably has to do with that the Philippines in reality is one of the poorer countries in Asia especially when it comes to Gross domestic product per resident. The Phillipines have a Gdp per peron in us dollars at 2951. while Indonesia for an example got 3620.

Full list here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...untries_by_GDP

I don't think an additional GDP per capita of 669$ will bring more megatalls

Somebody needs to be able to afford to live and rent in the Mega towers and gdp per capita is an average, the higher it is the larger the group in society will be, that can afford living in very expensive projects like this. But it might also be down to Culture and General policy towards construction.

Bear in mind, population does play a part in this.

Indonesia population (260 million) is like 2.5 times higher than Philippines (100 million).

Also Indonesia expected to become Asia's next trillion dollar economy this year.

Manila Highest tower now

According to Google, the highest tower now in Manila is The Gramercy Residences Tower, it's only 77 floors.

Check more about this building here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gramercy_Residences

This means that the proposed Diamond Tower was more than double the height of Manila's current tallest building.

Please don't post in this thread unless it's of an official announcement. Whenever I see this thread replied to, I get excited that it might be an announcement only to get burned
