yeah Makati is soo cool and dense.. Manhattan in the making..
Makati has a nice skyline perfect being Manila's CBD. Unfortunately, Makati lack either a supertall or an iconic structure. The PBCom Tower though is fine enough and is perfect for being the tallest in Makati and also the whole of Metro Manila. But it doesn't have the stature of the greats like ESB, Petronas, BoC or even The US Bank Tower in Los Angeles.

The only way is to built The Lopez Centre in Rockwell and the other planned supertall near Ayala Ave.

The most iconic scraper I've seen so far is The G.T. Tower.

I even find Wisma 46 more iconic compared to PBCom.

Jakarta looks impressive @ night.

But I would like to see something new. I would like to see Jakarta's skyline from a far away for example.

Here's some I took of Manila which I've posted it several times

Jakarta has a nice cluster. It would be interesting how the city will look if taken from that mountain on the top pic.
