If this get built at that rumored height, I suppose it will have the world highest observation deck?


Possibly even exceed the ones at RT

great tower...is this a premier casino and gambling city (Pasay City) in the whole country of Philippines??? Like the Mall of Asia and SM City Bacolod ,,, which has a spectacular view of scenic Manila bay,,,and the harbor of Guimaras strait... This will give the goers the added attraction of fresh air and breath taking view of this open waterway...

it's still proposed, so there is still a possibility of changing the design and maybe the state-run gaming firm here will have a design competition from foreign architects that will collaborate with our local architects. maybe we should contact the architect of guangzhou tower and ECADI to submit their design proposals.

awkward. i don't see anything ugly about it at all... even if it was made in a non-filipino city, it wouldn't look any different to me. it looks nice imo. same goes for the tornado tower that everyone thinks is ugly as well.

Yup its ugly... But its amazing to know that its high enough to pierce low-lying clouds. Is it true too that the proposed structure highest point will be as high as the mean elevation of Tagaytay and slightly more than half the height of Mt. Makiling (1109 meters). It is also true that it is double the height of any existing and proposed building right now in the Philippines.

I definitely think this should be built in another Philippine city. This looks real gaudy in Manila - the capital of the Philippines. It's like putting the CN Tower in Ottawa.

No it's not... Give some other Philippine city this tower to boost its image and tourism. Manila has enough investments and developments pouring in to dwarf those cities outside its environs.

I am not trying to downplay the existence of the tower once it is finished, but I really prefer a different design, it just doesn't fit Manila's current skyline. Since the city is investing a lot of money on tourism and investment, I would prefer them to come up with a better looking tower.
