I am utterly amazed at how advanced manila is, question though...is this boom recently? because i know that there are a huge amount of filipino's in the u.a.e and im wondering how come they all immigrate there if places like manila are doing so well

^Too much competition, besides there is a huge demand for Filipinos all over the world! Even in Iraq, US and UK contractors prefer Filipinos to work with them

this boom is not recently, it was started in the 90's, filipino's work abroad because they earn more outside the philippines. there is a huge demand for filipino skilled workers and professionals abroad so they have an option and these are to stay working in the philippines or work abroad and earn 3 to 4 times their salary in this country. we are just being practical and grabbing any better opportunities that comes to our door.

Homeowners Lose Suit Vs Skyscraper Project
Business World 9/29/05

The developer of the 77-storey Skycity project at the corner of EDSA and Ortigas Avenue has scored a victory over a homeowners’ association protesting construction of the country’s tallest building. In a resolution
promulgated last September 14, the Court of Appeals said it threw out the
Greenhills East Association’s bid to prevent Skycity’s proponents from proceeding with the project, citing no new arguments were presented. Greenhills East’s only recourse is to elevate the matter to the Supreme
Court. Work on the Skycity will resume if no Supreme Court appeal is filed within 60 days. This project has already been delayed for 10 years. The company has already lost around P500 million over the 10-year delay in construction. The proponents of the project hope to be able to
reactivate funding sources for the project, originally set to be built via supplier’s credit and the Bank of China. A joint venture between E. Ganzon and Sam Buena Realty Corp., the owner of a 4,119-square meter property, Skycity was envisioned to be the country’s tallest building at a
height of 335 meters. The project, located on the corner of EDSA and Ortigas Avenue and beside the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, will have 210,000 square meters of leasable space, inclusive of a 25-storey five-star hotel. It will also have an eight-level basement and
a top floor with a view of over 100 kilometers.

Btw this pic was turned into Skyscraper City's Philippine banner.
Whoa!

Skycity? Thanks coke, never heard of it till now. That would be a nice a addition to the skyline. From the rendering, i'm guessing it has a glass and steel curtain?
