This might come off as just plain weird, but the design of the top has always reminded me of pie (hmm..."pie in the sky[scraper]")

Rizal Tower has a simple design, but it manages to stay photogenic.

Nice, I did not notice there were units with balconies before

I went to a party here a few years back, very nice units.

Thumbs up Tallest Structure in Rockwell Power Plant during 70's

Noong mid-70's, ang pinaka mataas na istraktura dyan sa old Rockwell Power Plant ay ang chimney(malapit ito sa Colgate-Palmolive Phils. if you pass by J.P.Rizal Street, Makati).--accross the river, the Noahs Ark factory.

Pero ngayon ito nang naglalakihan at nagtataasan na mga gusali.
