I saw one design/render (on an ad by Pagcor on the newspaper), basically it's just the same design but the base of the tower is closed (on that render, the base looks like it has some open spaces and are just made up of beams) and the middle section is more rounder/spherical and looks like a ball is pierced by the tower

no the tower will now be built by the Genting Berhad Group-Megaworld Corp. joint venture, while the wheel will be built by Aruze Corp. of Japan-Wynn Resorts joint venture.

Finally... just can't wait... is it true that it will be finished(speculations) by 2012?? I just hope the Mayan Calendar Doomsday and Planet Nibiru of 2012 is just a Morbid's dream

for sure there would be a Resto above the Tower... a nice place for the perfect date...

I think this will be a splendid tower. It seems the height of the observation floor up top may be over 500m. That would be an awesome height. It would be interesting to see a final rendering. Hope it has glass elevators.

Wow, this needs to get built asap. The design is just fine but not great. Hope, they really make it very iconic not just iconic.

from what i saw in a recent episode of the Reporter's Notebook it looked like they were starting getting the land ready. There were dump trucks and bulldozers already doing some work in the area.
