The platform of this building is not in synch with the tower- kind of an odd mix. It appears like two architects clashed and decided that their designs should stand regardless..............the tower itself is not a bad design at all. Please post a crisper render.

Yes, correct. Please see below the related article to this project.

By Elizabeth Sanchez-Lacson
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 23:29:00 07/27/2008

MANILA, Philippines--Federal Land Inc., the property arm of tycoon George Ty, is embarking on a massive mixed-use development on its property in Fort Bonifacio in Taguig City as it makes a bold investment ahead of an expected correction in the real estate sector.

Federal Land president Alfred Ty said they were looking at launching the initial phase covering 1.5 hectares of a 27-hectare mixed-use development in Fort Bonifacio in the fourth quarter.

The initial phase will include a more than 60-story, five-star hotel with 400 rooms that is touted to be the tallest in the country. The hotel building with office spaces will rise on the 27-hectare complex owned jointly by Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co. (10.4 hectares) and the state-owned Bases Conversion and Development Authority (16 hectares).

The rest of the 27 hectares will feature a retail strip similar to Singapore's Orchard Road, and more office and residential developments.

A showroom for luxury car Lexus will also rise within the complex by the first quarter of 2009, touted as the first in the country that will showcase the full line-up of the luxury automobile maker.

Separately, Federal Land has also teamed up with Japan-based multinational firm Orix Corp. for The Grand Midori Makati, a P4-billion, high-end 2-tower condominium project along Legazpi St.

The Grand Midori will feature 622 units upon completion, with each tower standing 38 storiess tall. The first tower will start construction next year and may likely by completed by 2012.

Units cost between P3.4 million and P16 million and range between 39 and 130 square meters.

I really can't wait for this to start construction. This will be the Philippine's first supertall! I was hoping it would have an observation deck at the top or a restaurant, but no word on that yet.

the boom moved from Ortigas to Makati to BGC. You can tell by the appearance of the skyline when it was constructed.
Well, Ortigas has some boom left.

RP's tallest building soon to rise in Taguig
09/08/2008 | 10:23 PM
MANILA, Philippines - Taguig City will soon become the site of the country’s tallest building, Mayor Freddie Tinga disclosed Monday.

Tinga said Federal Land Tower, a real estate property developer, will construct a 66-storey building that will house a five-star hotel, as well as residential and commercial units.

The mayor claimed the building will outclass the 55-storey Philippine Bank Communication (PBCom) Tower in Makati City, so far the highest edifice in the country with its 241-meter height, comprising 55 floors.

“The completion of the country’s tallest building at The Fort will complement our efforts in promoting Taguig as a ‘total package’ city and will certainly put us in the tourism map of the Philippines,” Tinga said.

The P20-billion building will be constructed on a 27-hectare lot in the North Bonifacio district , which is jointly owned by the Metrobank Group of Companies and the state-owned Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA).

Tinga said the construction of the building will begin later this year.Federal Land, Inc., member of the business tycoon George TK Sy's Metrobank Group, will undertake the project.
Tinga said the first 25 floors of the skyscraper will be occupied by the Grand Hyatt Hotel, which will have 500 to 600 rooms and high-luxury hotel facilities.

“Taguig is fast becoming an ideal tourism destination in Metro Manila,” said Tinga said, adding that it would be the most ambitious project in the history of tall buildings in the country.

Tinga said the Federal Land Tower will open more opportunities for the Taguig residents as it will generate more jobs.

Meanwhile, Federal Land, Inc. president Alfred Ty said choosing Taguig City for the project was an "easy decision," citing the rapidly growing developments as a result of forward-looking urban planning schemes. - GMANews.TV
