@Fhoy: Wow! Ang galing! When will the construction start?

I'm excited for Fort Bonifacio's soon-boom.

we still don't have that much information as this has been announced just recently but based on their renderings...the tallest could go up to 50 stories.

I actually wanted to get the higher floors, but the last and highest floor available with the longer balcony in the living/dining room was the 37th floor. The higher floors had the smaller balconies in the master bedroom (how romantic, di ba?).

Its amazing how this development is right across the street from the Greenbelt Malls and Landmark. From there you have Shangri-La, Glorietta, and even the Ayala MRT station. They'll eventually construct a walk-over from the TRAG to Greenbelt so no need to cross any streets!

Looking up at Laguna Tower



Working late at night on San Lorenzo Tower, Arnaiz St.



A bit blurry, but a sneak peak of the skyline views in front of the TRAG (from Arnaiz St., probably filled up with more construction by the time the Manila Tower is finished)



San Lorenzo construction with Laguna Tower background



Close-up



Nice Laguna Tower balconies



Sometimes I forget we're still in the Philippines!!! HAHA!!



One last view

Don't worry. Asians are resilient so if you feel your country is getting worse at the moment, it will surely get better after a few years.

@ c0kelitr0

Judging from the quality of the render for Entertainment City, I feel it's a rip-off project (If you know what I mean.). I mean, it, most probably, won't be realized within the forseeable future. It's like the type of render one gets from a fake developer.

Now, don't get me wrong. I didn't say it really is a fake project but, based on my gutt-feeling, this project seems to be bordering as a visionary/fantasized/imaginary project rather than a real project.

Century City, on the other hand, is a very convincing project. I like it to be completed a.s.a.p. so that I can have a third option as to a real-estate investment. Initially, I was planning to buy a condo-unit at either The Columns [Third Tower] or at Serendra.

I took the pic of the development from the Mabuhay in flight magazine of PAL. This is a project of PAGCOR. I think they are still waiting for something. see below news from Manila Std site:



Being the third largest source of revenue for the national treasury, Pagcor is building on Bagong Nayon Pilipino the “Entertainment City Manila,” the Philippines’ answer to the global casino entertainment market.

This project is a 120-hectare complex proposed to be built in the Bay City reclamation area along Roxas Boulevard. More than a venue for world-class casino entertainment, the Entertainment City will have theme parks, hotels, residential villages, convention centers, recreational facilities and a cultural center. Its main focus will be family entertainment where parents and children can come and experience attractions each member will enjoy. I wish I live long enough to see that day.

And consider all these: The amount of much-needed jobs the Entertainment City will generate should be more than enough reason to convince our legislators to grant Pagcor a franchise extension that will enable the project to attract investors and break ground right away.

Furthermore, the complex is projected to bring in approximately $15 billion in investments and other forms of revenue over a 10-year period. The best part about building the Entertainment City is the fact that it will not cost the Filipino taxpayer one single centavo as all expenses will be shouldered by investors.



here's another news from Manila Std last May 05,2006...

As early as five years ago, the state-run Pagcor came out with a novel idea of developing a massive, multibillion special economic tourism and entertainment zone which is expected to rival the top industry players of the world. I refer to the Pagcor-proposed Bagong Nayon Pilipino Entertainment City-Manila.

Once opened, the Entertainment City alone could have generated more than 240,000 jobs as well as infused much-needed foreign investment to the economy. This does not include the multiplier effect on other industries such as services, construction and manufacturing.

The sad part is that while this project remains in the pipeline, and prospective investors are awaiting, Pagcor still has also to await the renewal of its expiring franchise in 2008 from the Senate. Imagine what has gone down the drain. What I am concerned about is that by the time we get our acts together, and when the Senate realizes that we are missing the boat, it will probably be too late. It has always been like this in this country. Politicians procrastinate at the expense of the people.
