Is that true? So there's no 2nd phase of this tower? Do you have the full version of this image?

yeah it turns out that the real purpose of why they 'cut' a portion of the tower... was to make room for the trump building

the image was from this video


they are already digging up the site of the trump tower at the moment

The original design was quite breathtaking but the changes made just to give way to another tower isn't a good sight to behold. ...meaning two landmark towers in Manila standing very close (2-4meters away) to each other.

But still, we'd hope the interiors will be at par to international standards, at least to compensate on what it has lost from the outside.

it turned out to be quite disappointing, regardless of being the tallest tower in Manila..But hopefully it would look better when it is 100% completed,

Don't be that mad. I mean it is the highest building in Manila now (even if it won't be 302 m). It still looks nice. Truly it isn't that what we excepted of the renderings. But still a nice, iconic skyscraper. It is balancing the Metro Manila skyline from the south & west view. Maybe even north & east view (haven't seen it from those angle). And it isn't that close, never ever. Maybe 15-20 meters!

Agreed! It just looks massive. Design wise, boring. Green cladding not very appealing either
