I say the freedom tower. Both are very nice but the freedom tower has a better background BTW, isn't this considered a versus thread?

Excuse me? We have lots of money and the economy is still robust. Besides, it's not the government that makes these towers...

I'll go for the one that has a better chance of getting built first so I'll be going for the Freedom Tower. The problem with Lopez Center is all the hype. It's a proposal, talking about it for a very long time now.

Rockwell Center is a nice area in Metro Manila and the Lopez tower if it gets built could be an iconic structure not just for Rockwell but for the entire Metro Manila.

Lopez Centre is definately more 'singular' than Freedom Tower (though not that singular)

Manila's skyline after this tower will be just awesome!

I think there's a news spreading in Philippine Forums that Lopezes changed their partner from SOM to Arquitectonica. So I think this similarity thing will come to an end.

The Philippine economy is not small. If you think that way, there should be no skyscraper and infrastructure projects, No private sectors and foreign investors. According to the "news" the Philippine Economy is the best in the world in 2007.

If im wrong, then correct me... =)
