ALWAYS THE OPTIMTIST

...any news on this? has this been approved or proposal stage, still? the Tower really needs to get built first, then the casinos/hotels can follow right behind. This will put Manila on the map big time!!

Let's hope that they rethink the design of the tower over again.

most likely the tower will not be built the way it looks in the render because the render was drawn up very early in the planning process...plans change over time so there is a good chance a better looking tower will emerge...i doubt that it will go all the way up to 655m though...

I still like the original rendering of the tower but it does need some improvement. I would like to see the original plan of the proposed height. Lowering it kind of kills the impact. Good luck to the project. This may take some time to get this going however.
