This building would be great without those huge firewalls.

If I may ask, is there any justifiable reason that architects and developers in Manila include massive vertical expanses of concrete on their buildings? Are there no building codes that regulate/limit the amount of exposed concrete on new constructions?

That is actually a hot topic here. Apparently, there is no restriction on the exposure of massive concrete i.e. firewall.
Due to the demand of condos/apartments, developers are launching new high rises and they continue to report brisk sales.

Just like this project: GRAMERCY RESIDENCES, 66 floor condo in Makati.

Versace project

(Updated 5:20 p.m.) Century Properties on Thursday said it has partnered with Milan, Italy-based Versace, the world-renowned fashion-luxury brand, and is investing over P3 billion for the residential development, called The Milano Residences.

The 24-year-old Philippine developer, whose track record in luxury projects includes the award-winning Essensa East Forbes in Manila — by Pei Partnership Architects and I.M. Pei — is collaborating with the interior designers of Versace Home to design the public spaces of The Milano Residences, a first for the international brand in Southeast Asia.

The Milano Residences will be completed by 2015 in the 3.4-hectare Century City, the flagship mixed-use development of Century Properties in the financial center, Makati.

The architecture will complement Versace Home’s interior design in the grand lobby, hallways, lounge, library, pool garden, and spa. Versace Home will also create interior themes that residents may apply to their own units.

“To have a Versace Home interior-designed address presents a rare opportunity, and an immense value to both end users and investors as the units are very few and are considered collectible real estate," said Robbie Antonio, Century Properties managing director and The Milano Residences project head.

The 340-unit development will have one- to three-bedroom units. Prime units in various sizes and layouts include The Penthouses, The Townhouses, and The Loggias — Italian-inspired units with private plunge pools, Century said in a statement.

By the first quarter of 2011, Century will open a showroom for The Milano Residences in Makati’s Pacific Star Building. — VS, GMANews.TV

CENTURIA MEDICAL ARTS BUILDING, 30F, u/c, MAKATI, new

GE Healthcare, a unit of General Electric, and Philippine real estate developer Century Properties will build a $100 million outpatient medical-information technology building in the business and financial district of Makati City.

“The project will rise in a one-hectare IT park accredited by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority at the 3.4-hectare Century City, [Century Properties’] flagship mixed-use development on Kalayaan Avenue," the developer said in a statement Wednesday.

“The project is expected to generate 3,000 jobs during its construction and 5,000 jobs upon the start of operations, which is estimated to be in the latter part of 2013 or early 2014," the real estate developer added.

A memorandum of understanding was singed by representatives of GE and Century Properties on at the Sofitel Hotel in New York City on Sept. 23 coinciding with the US trip of President Benigno Aquino III to attend the United Nations General Assembly and for the business roadshow to attract foreign investors to the Philippines.

Present at the signing were GE Technology Infrastructure vice chairman and CEO John Rice and GE vice president and senior counsel Karan Bhatia, with Century Properties chairman Jose E.B. Antonio.

President Aquino, Finance Secretary Cesar V. Purisima, and Energy Secretary Jose Rene D. Almendras also witnessed the signing.

Accessible

“We are optimistic that this assistance of providing advanced medical equipment, best practices and technological solutions will not only boost medical tourism in the Philippines, but also improve the standards of outpatient medical services in the country and make this accessible to more people," GE’s Rice said in the statement.

“It is a privilege to work with GE Healthcare for this project in the interest of promoting the Philippines as a top medical tourism destination with globally competitive standards for outpatient medical services," Antonio said.

“By providing the right venue with the right technology and systems, doctors may now put up clinics and provide the best care possible for people the world over," Antonio added.

Medical tourism is a rapidly growing industry in the Philippines, which can fully benefit from the establishment of new and technologically-advanced medical facilities, according to Century Properties.

With about 30-member hospitals, clinics, wellness centers and resorts, the Philippine medical tourism industry registered gross revenues of $350 million since 2006.

The Department of Tourism expects the total revenues of $3 billion by 2015, with the industry catering to 1,000,000 foreign patients a year.

“Research also shows that the Philippines has an even bigger potential in attracting medical tourists because of its culture of hospitality, quality healthcare services, competent medical practitioners, and cheaper medical treatments of as low as 70 percent compared to other Asian countries," Century Properties said.

GE is the fifth largest company in the US with revenues of $183 billion, while UK-based GE Healthcare is its $17-billion unit and a leading global provider of healthcare information and medical technology.
