The changing Ortigas skyline... Under construction on the right side are the St. Francis Towers and the Soho Central. Near the dense center and mostly obscured by other structures is the One Corporate Center also under construction.

By the way, looks like this will be the final rendering...Not the scale model on their info centre.

take note guys, this update is from a April 2007 article pa. things might have changed, but i think rockwell already made its mind on the final rendering.

The Trumps [Makati]

A new tower!

Living in such luxury is like being at the right place at the perfect time.

Nothing spells elegance like THE TRUMPS by Megaworld. It is a resplendent retreat and haven within a truly unique environment. Obviously, people love the fact that its fab location close to the exciting Greenbelt block puts them literally steps away from the important places. From the most prestigious offices to the snazziest shops & restaurants. From the latest entertainment houses to the most modern medical centers and the Finest schools. Be treated to an oasis of architectural bliss.

With so much convenience, life really is a pleasure. At The Trumps, even though you're so close to everything Makati has to offer, peace and sanctuary can be found in a moment, from the serene Salcedo park to the business and entertainment capital of the Philippines.. The Trumps is truly an urban oasis, rich in sophisticated styling surrounded by 1st class amenities. Truly The Trumps is the embodiment of aspiration and inspiration.

Inside your unit your own private sanctuary, you will unwind in an environment created solely for your pleasure. Select your favorite orientation and layouts to suit your individual lifestyle. You'll appreciate the delicate touches of light, glass and space, from the relaxing bay windows to the 'panoramic-glass' in the master bedroom. All this and more is waiting for you at THE TRUMPS.

---

Studio unit ranges from 2.9M-3.8M

1br unit ranges from 4.4M-5.5M

2br unit ranges from 9.8M-11M

3br unit ranges from 12.3M-13M

I read in the newspaper today that Donald Trump was angry with the name Megaworld gave its newest edifice.

What tower is that?

The Trump one looks really nice and it does have height. Unfortunately, it's another condos.

More office towers in Metro Manila please

The Trumps works well with neighbouring RCBC Plaza. I don't like the top of the building though. It resembles the crown of The US Bank Tower

Despite the skyscraper boom, I would like to say it again and again but the majority of them are condos. There should be a balance between residential and commericial high-rises kinda like what they are doing in Jakarta.

how many floors would it have? by the looks of it, it doesn't look that much tall for me. but still another good-looking structure in the making.
