there was a
legal battle between
the developer
and the nimbys.

the project is on a lot
near a wealthy
neighborhood and
they protested because
they're afraid of
shadows




and yes,

this project

is


dead.

they were
done digging
when the legal
battle began.

SC decision on 77-storey Skycity condo project affirmed with finality
April 24, 2010, 3:29pm

The Second Division of the Supreme Court ruled with finality on the right of the Skycity to be developed within a C-2 Zone in a parcel of land along the corner of EDSA and Ortigas Avenue, Mandaluyong City.

The lot used to be the site of the Tropical Hut Hamburger and Restaurant and Supermarket, a bank, parking spaces, through-street from Florida Street to Ortigas Avenue and a telecom tower.

In a Resolution dated March 10, 2010, the Supreme Court upheld its decision dated January 22, 2010 that the proposed Skycity project can be legally constructed by its owners in the lot which belongs to a C-2 Zone, different and distinct from the residential zone where the oppositors, the Greenhills East Association (GEA), is physically located. By resolving to deny the Motion for Reconsideration of GEA with finality, the Supreme Court noted that “the basic issues raised therein hav [-ing] been duly considered and passed upon by the Court in the aforesaid decision and no substantial argument hav [-ing] been adduced to warrant the reconsideration sought.”

"Since the decision was promulgated on January 22, GEA made several motions and manifestations which the Supreme Court duly noted. It nevertheless resolved with objectivity and impartiality the issues involved and finally put a stop to endless babble on the case. Thus, the proposed 77-storey condominium building with 8 basements is now cleared to proceed with its construction 14 years after its planning and design," Bienvenido G. de Castro, EGI Vice President-External Affairs said.

"The proponent, E Ganzon, Inc. hopes that its oppositors would now cooperate to realize the project which had unduly been delayed to the prejudice of its developer, the livelihood of those it stands to benefit during the interim, and the Filipino people in general who had been deprived of doing business in an environmentally friendly building because of their opposition," De Castro added.

De Castro said the project would still have to secure other permits, clearances and licenses as any other development project normally goes through under the current practice. But, with the patriotic help of its neighbors and government agencies, the project is supposed to clear the various regulatory requirements without a hitch. It is clearly the right of the owner of the lot to use its land pursuant to its ownership and the laws regulating its exercise, as the Supreme Court declared.

The Skycity would have several fire refuge zones, treat its sewer water prior to discharge, provide sufficient parking in the building and manage traffic within the building as well as cooperate with the local government in traffic management outside the building. It will have a program for the conservation of the environment during the lifetime of the building and implement solid waste management pursuant to law.


my hopes are high for this project..any updates then?
