PAGCOR Chairman Efraim Genuino had an interview with the NBN (National Broadcasting Network) realted to the Integrated City which will include the PAGCOR Tower.

According to him, the reclamation of land has been finished and the project is ready by next year.

I hope that National Geographic Channel feature this on MegaStructures or Discovery Channel on Extreme Engineering.

And let's hope for the best Philippines to rise by next year.

I dont think the Philippines should build such a tall tower. They have so many other things to worry about and Manila isnt the financial mecca that Shanghai or Dubai is so there is no point. Waste of money and bad design too.

the tower will not represent the financial state of Manila, it will represent pride for our country.

The Filipinos have been waiting this for so long. Now is the time. A great pride for our country.

We don't want to imitate or compete with Shanghai or Dubai so to speak. We just want this to be built - a tower that is rising off Manila Bay complemented with hotels, casinos, theaters, oceanarium, etc.

That new render looks like this tower's from the Carribeans or something, however the graphic guy made this render.

Once again, skyscraper100 has done it again!

Why don't you upload that on Google Warehouse and get that ready for Google Earth?



OT: Thanks for the rate in Warehouse!

Excuse me..... This is a landmark project.

We may not be able to have powers & influence like these places but we have the capabilities of doing so, but we are taking it one step at a time.

No point? On what? Building it? We desperately need tourists and investment. But as the project says, the government will not spend even a single cent in the project. Just pure private capital entities that were invited to do business without the government's touch on it.

Bad design? Hey, they can launch a design contest.

If you are another troll, then better be off here.

Maybe, if this gets built, you may want to visit the famous Manila Bay.

I hope it does. Since we lie on a typhoon prone area in the Pacific.

And I also hope they change the design not because I don't like it but it is too thin for a tall structure, and I don't want it to be very stout.

Here's a recent release. Looks like they're sticking with the design.
