MANILA | 6747 Ayala Avenue | 270m | Prep

Location: Ayala Avenue, Makati
Architect: Foster+Partners

‘Most beautiful’ skyscraper in PH set
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:13 AM May 02, 2017

Quote:
Property giants SM Prime Holdings and Federal Land Inc. have teamed up to build what is envisioned to be the Philippines’ “most beautiful” skyscraper that will stand as a legacy of their respective founders, Henry Sy Jr. and George Ty: A P5-billion luxury residential tower along Ayala Avenue.

-clipped-
The “best architect in the world,” referring to famous British architect Norman Foster, has been hired to do the project, Sy said. “He normally makes one or two buildings per city but no more than that,” he added.

-clipped-

...standing at around 270 meters or a couple of floors higher than the neighboring Discovery Primea.

This is really a welcome news sa Makati at Pililipinas. But can anyone advise me if this project will compete with the likes of Ayala's Alveo for the high end and Ayala Land Premiere which is the Ultra Luxury? Hoping na mabigyan nila ng justice un Ayala Avenue, but i think medyo challenging sa kanila since yun area is very small which is good addition pa rin sa Ayala Avenue.

Beauty's subjective and in the eye of the beholder, but this has got me excited as well as with Lucio Tan's rumored KPF designed building near the area and PNOC's "Petronas" counterpart in BGC.

Can't wait for the renders. Let's see what Foster has come up with, but that news article seems to have built a strong hype about this proposal.

It should be taller than Discovery Primea standing right next to it here.

Design is a super-slim...


I have a mixed feeling about this. Half of me wants some flashy extravagant centerpiece, which Manila sorely lacks; but this one's so muted and simple, it's kinda slowly growing on me.

Nope. Trump Tower if they'll add the spires to it lol will be taller. And, Park Central is also taller by 6 meters. It's Ayala Avenue's tallest though.

It's a great "tall" addition to the skyline but I'm somewhat disappointed as well since the developers have been touting it to become "the most beautiful" skyscraper, so I was hoping Norman Foster and his team would come up with something more "iconic" than this one. Nevertheless, it's still a much welcome development in Makati.

Foster probably didn't want to outclass his fellow Pritzker awardee (Kenzō Tange) too much, whose swan song is right next door so he/his team chose a rather simple massing .

I'm more curious about its fašade. Although, if Foster would be as involved with this as his other projects, I wouldn't probably worry too much. I've also been to the Apple Store on Orchard Road recently and it was quite beautiful. I think the finer details will make or break this building.

If it isn't clad in premium state of the art glass, then its only saving graces would be its height and the Foster brand. Otherwise, it might as well have been designed by a local firm with the eventual cheap looking results and where they could save some serious cash in the end.
