Well, here are pictures from the Global City Thread in the Philippine Forums. Thanks to the photographers and the forumers who took and found these diagrams and pics. Sorry if you've seen most of them.

here's a general overview of Global City

It would really be nice if some of the prestigious colleges and universities in the Philippines establish a campus at the University Park area of Global City but then again I don't think they can afford the sky high prices of the lots there.

I think all this new construction is great however why are they making all the new buildings in the same area, the same height? It makes for an odd skyline.

They have districts within the global city so I would think all residential towers would be in the same area, educational institutions in one area and commercial establishments in another area but then again they have mixed use developments on their plans so we'll just have to wait and see. As far as skyscraper heights that remains to be seen as well because Fort Bonifacio is an ongoing development. By the way Serendra has low to mid rise buildings and I believe on its second phase high rise towers.

It seems to me that Myx not only got lost in the new International School. He got lost also with Philippine history. Japan controlled the Philippines for only 3 years and the U.S. for 33 years, not the other way around. He may have just gotten "myxed" up.

Finally someone had to say something about it! I pretty much ignored it hoping that he'll notice it sooner than later.
