Ortigas to build 75-story building, country’s tallest
By Jenniffer B. Austria

http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?...ws2_mar17_2009

THE Ortigas group is building what would be the country’s tallest structure, the 75-story One Galleon Place in front of the Asian Development Bank in Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City.

The 300-meter-tall building, which will house offices and a five-star hotel, will overshadow the 52-story PBCom Tower in Makati, a 55-story condominium being built by Anchor Land Holdings Inc. in Binondo, Manila, and the 66-story Federal Land Tower rising up in Taguig City.

The P20-billion project is being launched to commemorate Ortigas & Co.’s 75th anniversary, according to chief operating officer Rex Drillon.

The company is also spending another P20 billion on its first residential development project within a 12-hectare property in Bagumbayan, Quezon City.

Called Circulo Verde, the project involves the construction of 12 residential condominiums targeting middle and upper- income markets. The project is expected to be completed over 15 years.

This year, the company will be launching two residential towers: the 11-story Majorca and the 23-story Ibiza, with one-, two- and three-bedroom units priced at P80,000 a square meter, which is lower than the P85,000 that Megaworld Corp. offers in its projects in Libis, Quezon City.

The company aims to sell at least 200 units this year.

Drilon also disclosed plans to redevelop the 16-hectare Green-hills Shopping Complex into increase the space allotted to its flea markets, to about 400,000 square meters from 100,000 square meters now.

The company is building two floors of underground parking, a residential tower, a serviced hotel and shopping mall.

Ortigas has tapped RTKL to do a master plan for the area.

The entire project is expected to cost P20 billion.

Sorry, I just took a picture of today's copy of Manila Standard Today.

From the newspaper:

"The 300-meter-tall building, which will house offices and a five-star hotel, will overshadow the 52-story PBCom Tower in Makati, a 55-story condominium being built by Anchor Land Holdings, Inc. in Binondo, Manila, and the 66-story Federal Land Tower rising up in Taguig City."
The article claims that this will become the country's tallest but only quoted 300 meters. It won't beat Gramercy and Stratford with that height. This might only be just the roof height because based on the scale model, it's more than twice the height of J Tower, 150 meters (the tower in front).

Clearer renderings will be posted when our ever-resourceful forumers will get their hands on them

Ortigas & Co. to build RP’s tallest structure; expansion plan bared

K. J. R. Liu
BusinessWorld
September 1, 2008

PROPERTY DEVELOPER Ortigas & Co. Ltd. Partnership is erecting in Pasig City what it hopes to become the country’s tallest building.

The 75-storey structure will rise on a one-hectare property in Ortigas Center, Deputy Chief Operating Officer and Shopping Center Division Head Joselito F. Santos said in an interview last week.

One Galleon Place will become the country’s tallest building, beating the 52-storey PBCom Tower in Makati and the world’s eighth tallest building, the 69-storey Shun Hing Square in Shenzhen, China.

Mr. Santos said the skyscraper would be divided into two portions — the upper half dedicated to a five-star hotel and the lower half for office units.

No date has yet been given for the project. "It is in the plan. As of the moment, we are still concentrating on our other projects," Mr. Santos said.

The Ortigas group also plans to start the second phase of renovating Greenhills Shopping Center in San Juan by 2010, as it adds at least 50,000 square meters more to its 100,000-square meter floor area.

"We plan to have a bigger Greenhills [by setting up] new buildings and having better amenities. We plan to invite brands like Mango and Zara although we are not going high-end with our stores," Mr. Santos said.

The company also wants to widen the space of the mall’s bazaars, which he said gives Greenhills its unique identity.

Aside from expanding Greenhills, Ortigas & Co. is also expanding the Music Museum by 2010 so it can have up to 1,000 seats where plays, concerts and other performing arts can be held. Construction will start next year, Mr. Santos said.

Like other property developers that have diversified into the outsourcing industry, Mr. Santos said the company would start the construction of two of four business process outsourcing (BPO) buildings at Tiendesitas in Pasig by the fourth quarter.

The company earlier disclosed a plan to build four BPOs at the Tiendesitas complex to take advantage of the growing demand for office units from the outsourcing industry. "Demand is still strong," he added.

The four-storey BPO buildings will stand on a 20,000-square meter property. The first two buildings are expected to start operating by the first quarter of 2010.

"We hope to start the construction of the third and fourth buildings by the middle of next year," Mr. Santos said.

"The BPOs will not compete with the residential buildings although they have become a bigger component of the company’s business portfolio," he added.

The company earlier said that it was spending P15 billion over the next decade to convert a 12-hectare property in Quezon City into a mixed-use community.

The project, which will target the middle-income market, will consist of residential condominium units and townhouses.

It will have 5,000 units in low- and high-rise buildings, with price tags ranging from P2.5 million to P3 million per unit.

The first phase of the project will involve the construction of five buildings this year.
