MANILA | SkyCity Tower | 335m | 1099ft | 62 fl | Pro

from Edmundtanso





On a 4,000 square metre site, Skycity will be a 80 storey tower with 36 levels comprising of commercial office space, a six star all-suite hotel with an average of 220 rooms and a limited number of luxurious residential penthouses units. In addition to this, a podium plaza and cinema complex, podium vehicle parking and an eight level shopping mall is located below ground level.

The uniqueness in its concept is that the functions of the building vary from a hotel to office space, on a very large scale. The observation area, ‘Skyview’ and ‘Skycafe’ is the highest man made occupyable space in Manila, which will provide visitors a unique opportunity to overview Manila, the capital city.

The plaza is the main access point to the commercial office, and serves as a principle connector to the plaza’s facilities which includes a cinema complex, bowling alley and commercial outlets.

As a result, the design scheme perfected the client’s concept into a workable architectural solution while providing the tower with a distinct skyline character.

If I understand correctly, it was started long time ago, and got stalled (probably because of the Asian financial crisis ?)

the project was on-hold bec. of the legal dispute between the developers and the east greenhills association, (a nearby group of wealthy residents).

the opponents trying to keep skycity away because they are worried that the building will cast a shadow on their homes and affect their water supply.....

the exciting about this megastructure is, this skyscrapers features an observation area known as "skyview" & "skycafe", (the highest occupyable space in the capital)
which will provide the visitors a unique opportunity to overview the whole metropolitan manila....

another tourist attraction for manila!

great!

The middle and upper part of the tower is almost a shameless rip-off from the Commerzbank, Frankfurt.
