Good job to Discovery, actually. The project is really upscale. From the architect, down to the smallest details of the project, Primea is a beautiful addition to the real estate market in Makati.

This is with or without the apex?

I just wonder if real estate in the Philippines is really that strong and needed. There are so many residential towers under construction yet there are still many people who can't afford a unit, and people who are homeless and prefer renting a bedspace

This is a 12-storey mixed-use building owned by Clipp Machenson Holdings, Inc. at Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. This structure will have a floor area of 8,000m2 and a total height of 51.80m.

EEI entered into contract as the General Contractor for Civil, Foundation and Structural Works. The structural shell shall be completed within a 6-month period which started on May 2011.

W Fifth Avenue [30F|com] BGC



Stumbled upon this on sulit another project from w group. these are the only details I found.

W Fifth Avenue is a 30 storey Commercial and office space. All high ceiling, 100% back up power and located near St. luke's Hospital, SnR, the upcoming Shangri la Hotel and PSE. Designed by Arquitectonica

The Waltz is so avant guarde IMO and W 5th Ave's facade is chaotic but pleasing ..and Clipp Center reminds me of Imelda M..

The Waltz looks like remnants of shanties put together. At least Clipp has some kind of uniformity.

And yeah, some people should learn eEtiquette and stop writing in excessively bold letters and to write in English!
Correction: The 30 meter elevation difference of the GRam and PBCOM is very inaccurate. The actual difference is only around 3-4 meters. That 30meter wrong info is as high as an 8-9 storey building but in actuality that isn't the case.

As for the height of the Gram, experts here w/c was corroborated by other engineers said that the approximate height of the Gram is only around 250-260meters and not 280 meters more so 302 meters.

Obviously, in all angles, the Gram looks taller than the PBCom because the former's concrete structure is up to the apex while the latter's main structure only stands @ 222m (helipad) while the radio tower @ 241 m. and the mast/antenna @ 259 m.

Can't wait for this building to top off.

@ 68 floors and projected height of 250meters, it'll be almost the same height as the PBCom (259m) and the Gram (250-260m).

Since Discovery Primea is more luxurious than the GRAM, i'd think its floor to ceiling height is higher than that of the Gram w/c has a typical/standard height.

Until there is definite evidence which proves this position, I am in no position to believe it. I had to revert the article on the height of the Gram on Wikipedia a few times because some anonymous editors assert the figures "estimated" by SSC-resident engineers.

No problem dude!!

Yeah, i do believe that experts in this field can actually make clear and correct approximations by using all the possible valid methods of calculations w/c fortunately a few have done and corroborated by other experts too.

It's also a fact that the developer intentionally did not publish its actual height during top off last Jan 2011 since they knew that it will never reach the supertall status. So the best thing to do for us skyscraper fanatics is to have the opinions of the experts. They can do best in making valid calculations of the Gram's height. It may not be the actual height per se, but we can be sure that the real thing is well within their approximations.

LAS CASAS FILIPINAS DE ACUZAR, BATAAN

















I hope they put a project like this in Manila to promote Philippine Culture not only to the tourist but also to all Filipinos. Maybe the developers should build project like this instead of italian and french Architecture inspired.
