they should have designed the tower in a more different way... the design is very similar to the other towers in other countries... like the menara tower in malaysia. i hope they redesign the tower.

we still haven't seen the final design because they won't release it. what we have seen are three different designs for press release only.

With the World economic crisis we experience right now its quite impossible for this to push through. Maybe 2015 would do..

It's actually called Menara KL or KL Tower in English And yep, I agree Menara KL is not much of an eye catcher. But not to take away from it's functionality of course...

Who will build the tower?

my assumptions....

the genting group of malaysia will build the tower
but they cannot build a property in the phil since they are fully foreign and SEC requires only a filipino corp in the phil to establish business in the phil so star cruise has to merge with a filipino inorder to be a filipino and the lucky one is the alliance global not really "merge" but they need to have a filipino citizen so... alliance global has a subsidiary, Megaworld corp and is the contractor of starcruises in building the pagcor tower...

don't know if they're still wanting to invest here since they're already announced before that they were going to cancel it...maybe because they're just affected with the global financial crisis....

i'm confused also..as what i know there are just 2 developer to build the Pagcor Tower....any way i got that one on Wikipedia.org...Genting Berhad Group of Malaysia and i think the Megaworld Corp. of Mr. Andrew Tan who will be the Depeloper of this Tower...

wikipedia isnt a reliable source... you better refer to the investors' website or email them if you're a share holder... because sometimes these transactions from one company to another are hidden especially if its foreign and it will just air out when its done..

The PAGCOR Tower will be located by the Manila Bay in Manila, Philippines. The tower is expected to be 665 meters (2181 feet 9 inches/0.41 mile) high. It will be a part of the proposed Bagong Nayong Pilipino-Entertainment City Manila, which will feature world-class casinos patterned after Las Vegas, hotel-resorts and amusement parks for the first phase. The next two phases will have retirement villages and entertainment centers. It is stated that construction will commence by 2009. Aruze Corp. of Japan or Genting Berhad of Malaysia is slated to do the tower. If finished, it would be the second tallest man-made structure in the world, next to Burj Dubai, and the highest in Southeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific Region.

MANILA, March 5 (PNA) -- The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) has finally started the construction of the country's largest and premier entertainment city.

Dodie King, vice president for Corporate Communications of Pagcor, said the P25 billion entertainment city which is similar to Las Vegas and called as the Bagong Nayon Entertainment City Manila will be the premier hub of entertainment and tourism in Asia.

According to Mr. King, Pagcor is now developing and creating various entertainment activities such as musical plays with the magical show "Wanders" as its initial offering.

"We've had our ground breaking last week and construction starts this week," King said in an interview during the gala premier of their latest musical play, "Flow" held at the Pagcor theater in Paranaque.

Flow involves a line up of captivating dances from a cast of 150 performers, including dancers from Cuba and Chinese acrobats.

King said the entertainment city is expected to generate over 250,000 jobs during the construction and its operations by 2012.

"We hope to complete the construction in three years," King added.

According to the Pagcor official, they wanted to deviate from the idea that Pagcor is more of a casino gaming and this is the reason why they have created the plays Wanders and Flow.

"We want to show to the people that Pagcor is no longer casino gaming....the goal is to shift into entertainment, because tourism is now our approach," he explained.

Pagcor chairman Efraim C. Genuino meantime said there are three more shows that are in the pipeline.

He said this new shows are expected to generate additional income for them and will also showcase the talents of Filipino entertainers.

"Wanders success inspired us to produce an equally superb production that features both local and foreign talents at their best. With this, I am deeply honored to present Flow, another breakthrough in Philippine entertainment," Genuino said.

Last October 2008, Pagcor and the city government of Paranaque sealed the agreement and allowed the construction of the entertainment city in the 150-hectare property along the Roxas Boulevard and the Coastal Road.

Based on the plan, the entertainment city will have hotels, convention centers, theaters, sports stadiums, restaurants, shopping centers, cultural complexes, museums and amusement parks.

Pagcor also expect to double its income to about US$ 1.3 billion by 2012, once the new entertainment city becomes operational. (PNA)
