But I bet they will be doing some sort of making that part of the bay a beach, a man-made one.

That new render looks like this tower's from the Carribeans or something, however the graphic guy made this render.
Why off course...I dont think Ive ever heard of a Philippine skyscraper toppling down because of a typhoon...I think the fact that Philippines get visited by an average of 25 typhoons and dozens of earthquake each year might give the engineers and the designers a little hint...

Hi, this is in the bay area, just like the Jakarta bay (teluk Jakarta in Utara). There are island provinces facing the bay - Bataan and Cavite.

The bay area is also home to US Embassy, hotels, Mall of Asia, casinos, strips of bars, restaurants.

Here's a picture of Roxas Boulevard, a portion only... the location of Pagcor Tower is not shown but near at the left side most of the picture.



"Formerly Dewey Boulevard in the American colonial times, Roxas Boulevard takes its name after the fifth President of the Philippines, Manuel Acuña Roxas, when the country gained its independence in 1946. The long stretch of Roxas Boulevard offers a scenic view of Manila Bay, which most local and foreign visitors like to capture on their cameras. "

they're still developing the infrastructure in that area. they can't just build a tower without building the roads, etc.

projects like this
usually take several
years before construction
starts.

let's take London Bridge Tower
for example. It was proposed
in 2006. It's 2009 now and
they're still demolishing the
existing structure they intend
to replace.

Patience is virtue

OT: literally, manila has been very "cool" for several weeks now..18.1C being the lowest..

i dont think that the pagcor tower construction will start this first quarter of 09...they'll start first with the small casinos, submersible observation wheel and other stuff..maybe

hmm to me it doesnt look like that is an official website for the project so its not a reliable source for the project but its nice that someone made a website and posted everything there is to know about the project.
