You can't do anything until you'll pass a petition to the architect of this building.

the rendering of the Pagcor tower's just right... but the design of the whole Pagcor city is undeniably fugly. there's no unity and the buildings around the tower are very colorful. YUCK!!!

Yeah. Mimimimimimichigo shippuh... Oops... OT.

Anyways, I wish that they construct this ASAP due that the investors have had their initial deposits of assurance to comply to the project.

the design and location>>>>fail

I really don't like the design....it's so....old-fasioned twig tower(I'm not complaining about the lights, it's the infra) and the location...... it can be dangerous coz the tower is beside in the gulf and for rare instances, a gigantic tidal wave can hit that building(I said not the storm, but the WAVES) so that's all.

but nice cuz that's considered as awesome achievement by filipinos.

665m sounds good to me! This would be a great achievement for Manila IMO. Hope to see it rise soon...

New to the forums. I first learned about PAGCOR her.

Anyway, I thought the latest design was not modern but futuristic instead, with the greenery incorporated at the top and middle within the tower.

I think this will be a sight to see looking out from a commercial airplane about to land at the nearby airport. However, the tallness of the structure worries me. Its proximity to the airport, particularly Runway 13-31, leaves little clearance for a large, fast moving aircraft. I think some things may change here, either the height of the tower, or the displacement of the runway or take off and landing procedures and redirecting traffic elsewhere.

I wish they used a different inspiration for a Pagcor supertall structure, something that would be more traditional to the Philippines.

Example, I came across several traditional Filipino Weapons like the "Kampilan". It'll be interesting to see how this would look in a massive scale.

As far as the name, PAGCOR Tower isn't so bad but it isn't so great either.
A few suggestions:
Manila Spear/Arrow
Manila Typhoon/Twister
The Capital
Monsoon Tower
Sky Level
Manila Beacon (beacon for boats and airplanes to find their way lol)
Republic/Democracy Tower
Archipelago Beacon

I wonder how the engineers of Pagcor Tower would put up with some of their engineering skills and construct the tower that would withstand the power of super typoons and earthquakes. Manila Bay has a reputation of receiving the most powerful typoons in the past. Come to think of it, the Pagcor Tower will be constructed on sea soil which is unstable.

If this Pagcor City will indeed be 665m in height then this would be a marvel in construction history worthy of an episode in Discovery Channel's Man-Made Marvels
