So they took out the fountain in front of the tower?

I wonder what else they removed. Hopefully the (mono)rail system is still there.

looks very unstable to me and the location is um..... nonetheless the design is something we haven't seen before so original concepts are always welcome and also the height at least for now it would make it the second tallest in the world, just hopes it does go under construction so that there will be a landmark skyscrapers for the philippines

c0kelitr0: Could you post the other half of the article? Actually some of the words at the top are cut off. Just asking so we can read what new information (if any) is in the article. Did they announce when they will start construction? Or did they talk about the tower project at all? Thanks!

That is a logical design for the city of Manila. A tower that looks like a palm tree and is painted in a different scheme would look tacky in a city like Manila. That tower is near perfect. And as if there are other designs that suit Manila..

I dont see how that looks like the CN tower...almost all observation towers pretty much have the same design. A long vertical base with an observation decks and an antenna on the top. I especially like that spherical portion in the middle...i wonder what it would be used for...

This is what I was trying to say.

Anyway, to me this is a new design. This is Manila, a very simple city, unlike Guangzhou where it's China, and everything has to look out of the ordinary. Imagine the Guangzhou Tower being built in Manila, it would look so tacky.

I don't like the tower. For me it's too ugly. But that is only my opinion!

i think ang kulang sa design is the white vertical support...that part needs to be redesigned but the observation decks are very nice

The fact that PAGCOR is a government-owned company, this may result in several hearings and debates inside the Senate first before we can see any sign of construction i will give this 10 years
but the 'government' is not where the funds are coming from
