EGI SKYCITY 335M/80F

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.

Interesting. So You got a purpose Football only stadium for potential regional football matches and world cup qualifiers, and then a much larger athletics/football stadium for a potential Asian Games and Olympics?

And of course the new Olympic size stadium could be used for Football matches should there be the demand for certain matches.

For future Asian games and other international sporting events but as for football per se, I don't think so since football isn't really a popular sport here.

Renovation or rebuilding of that old stadium is a must since it's already 80 years old.

Yes I know that, but big crowds for potential Euro club matches, could be held at a 60,000 seater Olympic stadium.

The rectangular Rizal stadium would serve as the main stadium for rectangular based football sports, the new stadium would retain the title as National Stadium, serving large events like the Asian Games and Olympics, as well as large concerts, religious gatherings and regular use as a SEA Games stadium.

Manila has already hosted the SEA Games three times, in 1981, 1991, and 2005. Time for a second hosting of the Asian Games, perhaps.

Perhaps? It's a MUST. Forget the Olympics for now, better wait till say the latter 2020's maybe the 2028 edition?

As for an Asian Games, it's a must, perhaps bidding for the 2019 edition would be ideal for the necessary experience and as a test to see if you can host an Olympics.

You'd be building core venues in preparation for an Asian Games, most importantly the Olympic Park, which could have the following:

- Olympic Stadium (I'd say to save on costs, 60,000 minimum upgradable to 80,000 for a future Olympics)
- Fully indoor Aquatics Center (Main pool of well over Olympic minimum, indoor diving pool and perhaps a secondary competition pool)
- Velodrome (The Philippines does need a modern Velodrome, indoor and perhaps upgradable, though Olympic Capacity will save on the need to upgrade)
- Hockey Center (Perhaps temporary, in which temporary will also be proposed for an Olympics)
- Indoor hall(s) (Should there be sufficient indoor halls scattered around clusters and around the city for indoor sports, then both the new exhibition center and the convention center could serve as IBC and MPC respectively).
As such, temporary halls or arenas could be proposed for the Asian Games and Olympics.

The Athletes Village will also be there, which in turn for an Olympics, a new athletes village will be built nearby on undeveloped land, whilst the Asian Games one, could serve (assuming tenancy has expired for the apartments) as the media village (assuming the media are not going to be housed in hotels for the Olympics).

Such a development in preparation for an Asian Games will be a big boost for any future Olympic bid. Hosting the games will prove once and for all if such a big, over populated, congested and somewhat poor transport infrastructure city can indeed host a mega event like the Olympics.

I think it would be nice for us to start focusing on building up our athletes and teams before we consider the olympics ... it would nice to be able to get a medal or two in an olympics that we host.

Yes, but things like a dedicated "Olympic Park" as well as the hosting of major international sporting events helps in this too. It's vital, to prove that Manila is capable of hosting major sporting events and could host an Olympics.

Yeah I have no problem with developing an Olympic Park. I think it would be great for our infrastructure development. It'll make the rest of the metro want to match the quality of the Olympic Park. But if we build one, we can't half-ass it. Look at how nice the other Olympic Parks are - Beijing for example. After Beijing set the stage for having a nice venue, we can't afford to deliver something not as good.

Why not? Who said Beijing had to be the norm? Who said you needed a 90,000 seat Olympic Stadium? 60,000-80,000 should be enough. The design would be a good mix of the functional, and plenty of green spaces, much of the core venues as well as some auxiliary ones would be put here.

The transport infrastructure can be improved, what else can be improved in Manila's metropolitan area?
