the tallest being PBCOM, right? "will design" and "designed" are two different things

Don't you have basic cable/TFC?

Well, I didn't get to watch it. The part I saw was that he was famous outside the Philippines. And the tower they showed on the news didn't look like SkyCity.

Skycity is a 77 storey skyscraper whose construction is pending in Mandaluyong, Philippines. It is expected to be completed in 2012 and be 335 metres tall.

Skycity is planned as a mixed used skyscraper with a hotel, officespace and residential space.

Actually it just needs a little design revisions. It would look a lot more better if its podium was not so large or tall , or as a compromise the central tower should seemingly start at the ground floor, that would be a great design then

actually, they didn't show the skycity, the news was focused more on the architect. it was stated that he was the one who designed the building that will be the tallest in the philippines. He also designed some buildings in some arab countries. btw, he's a filipino

perhaps, he's the one living in KL right now.. He was also featured on PINOY ABROAD, with his design of Centennial Tower..
