SOM regurgitating their old designs again. Wasnt there a tower a lot like this designed for Guangzhou a few years back? With the spiky crown and everything. Maybe it was for a different city, I dont remember what is was called.

I think that's the only design of The Lopez Centre and this one is definitely taller than The Skycity!

Hmm. This reminds me of the Freedom Tower for NYC. Not surprising given that the architect for both buildings is SOM...

The Lopez Centre doesn't need to be as tall as the Freedom Tower but it will be among the world's tallest if it's completed! At least better than The Bayoke II

With international investors bullish again on the Philippine property market, are these "on hold" and "stale" projects back on track? Anyone has insider info on these major real estate projects?

You heard the news in bandila last week? there was this filipino architect who will design the highest building in the Philippines but I dunno if he's referring to skycity or lopez center, but either way, one of these two buildings will surely be on the grounds!
