Metro Manila can be called as Manila. In accordance to Presidential Decree No. 940, the metropolitan area of Manila as a whole is the Philippines' seat of government. For outsiders whether outside the National Capital Region or the Philippines, to ease the classification, it is simply called Manila. That's why our airport is called Manila even though the exact location is in Pasay, Metro Manila. Concerts of foreign artists/singers are labeled "Live in Manila" even if the actual venue is is Quezon, Metro Manila or Pasay, Metro Manila. Another example is the proposed PAGCOR Tower Manila, the exact location is in Pasay, Metro Manila.

Turnover

i accompanied my sister to the century properties office at pacific star and we could see the gramercy from the window. there wasn't much activity going on from the outside as far as i could see. does that mean they are working on the units inside already?

we were looking for forward to the turnover which, my sister was told would be on june 2011 but she was told it has been delayed and moved to dec 2012. can anyone enlighten me as to why there is such a huge delay - 1 and a half years?
a friend of mine has insinuated that the funds for gramercy might have been diverted to another project. i hope this is not the case.

I may be mistaken but from what I've been reading in the local thread (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1203189), the turnover on December 2012 is as scheduled.

Original turnover date was june 2011. the checks which she had issued to century properties reflected this. last lumpsum payment/postdated check was for june or may 2011.
