GT and Torre Mayor don't resemble each other. PBCOM has alot of similarities to Torre Mayor.

On the other hand, PBCOM best fits Metro Manila's tallest until either The Skycity of Lopez Centre is completed. I prefre seeing PBCOM as the tallest building in The Philippines than LKG Tower!

I'd prefer PBCOM Tower, I kinda like the skin on it.

Hands down Torre mayor... Even technology wise, torre mayor boasts of mass-tuned dampers and cross bracing designed to withstand major earthquakes. And its aesthetics no doubt superior to PBCOM... PBCOM is a good structure, don't get me wrong... but it is just inferior to torre mayor... except height
