I highly doubt zoning restrictions played its part in "reducing" (without reliable sources, if I may say) the height of the Gramercy Residences. For one, that part of Makati is not covered under the height restrictions imposed for areas near the periphery of NAIA.

Also, if I remember seeing that nice panorama of Metro Manila which was the banner a few days ago, Gramercy was clearly taller than PBCom Tower. Just saying.

Finally, this is the international forums, so please speak in English. Thanks.

BGC really reminds me of Seoul. Probably because of the many simplistic, white buildings based there.

The zoning regulations regarding height in Makati has nothing to do with the ATO regulations.

Second, Century Properties has not been forthcoming with the correct information on Gram's final height. All structural engineers I've confirmed with (even inside Century and Makati City Hall) agree that Gram will only reach (a maximum) of 280m, 20m short of Supertall status.

AGAIN, this is an international forum. By god, write in English!

On that angle, perhaps, Gram's looks taller but the topography suggests otherwise. The lot where Gram stands is 30M lower than where PBCOM stands. Side by side, I concede, Gram is taller but since the land where it sits is lower than PBCOM, there are more angles where they would look appear almost the same height.

And yeah, some people should learn eEtiquette and stop writing in excessively bold letters and to write in English!

KrisCojuanco, I'm still waiting for your rebuttals on the Lopez Tower, the PSE Building and the numerous other projects that have either been completely scrapped or scaled down.

BTW, if you have above average comprehension, I asked who your sources are. Century Property Sales Agents? Of course they will claim that.

anyhow, now that I've silenced the troll. May I just say that one of my favorite projects to date is the Discovery Primea, one of the last buildings designed by Pritzker Award laureate Kenzo Tange.

I talked to my friend who used to work as a Marketing Consultant for Discovery. All the penthouses have been sold-out but there are still quite a few units up for grabs. I guess the 60 -70 million asking price is steep for many.
