I think it looks like Commerzbank, not Messeturm. But not so much.

Congrats to Manila, Looks Great! Very modern in my Opinion
One thing though 335m for 80 Stories, that spire will be adding plenty of meters on that tower just like Q1

I think they are in a wait and see situation. they are waiting for the first tallest to be constructed then they will construct taller than what is currently being constructed just like what happend to the tall building along Ayala Avenue.

Thanks man! A few degrees boost will correct the tilt. This building will be straddling two skylines- Ortigas and Mandaluyong and should trigger a boom to create a one big skyline to rival Makati!

Nice tower for MAnila ...but how can you afford such buildings? Your economy is not that dynamic or large.

Who occupies these towers?

Beautiful. The pic on page 1 looks like something by Norman Foster (very smilar to Commerzbank in Frankfurt).
