MANILA | The Mega Tower | 250m | 50 fl | U/C

Location: E. de los Santos Avenue, Ortigas, Metro Manila
Architect: Arquitectonica
Structural Engineering: Aurecon
Developer: SM Prime Holdings, Inc.
Purpose: Office

Aurecon wins major property project in the Philippines



15 December 2015 - Aurecon has been appointed by property developer SM Prime Holdings Inc. to provide structural engineering design services for a major new project in the Philippines - the SM Megamall Tower, a high-rise office building being developed in Metro Manila.

Global engineering consultant Aurecon will work closely with Arquitectonica, the architect on the project, helping the company bring its vision to reality from the concept engineering phase right through design development.

-snipped-

The 50-storey SM Megamall Tower development will dominate the heart of Ortigas in Mandaluyong City, a major commercial business district within Metro Manila. The Tower’s 124 200 square-metre floor area will also feature three levels of underground parking, plus above-ground parking.

“The tower is S-shaped in elevation,” said John Webb. “And so one of the biggest challenges is developing a structure that can be constructed effectively with edges that move in or out at every level without compromising the ability to withstand seismic activity.”

Looks taller than 235 when comparing it to the other built structures in the renders. Another nice tall and glassy one by SM after BDO and The Podium, and they're getting bolder with the shapes.

Just for reference, it will be standing on the right side of this relatively recent semicircle expansion of Megamall that they did.

Can't wait for these 2 SM buildings to be up in the Ortigas skyline (SM-Keppel 2 and this one).

The lot is huge, SM can actually squeeze in another tower if it wants to.

Or they could go for more landscaping which isn't exactly their specialty, but which I would actually prefer even if turns out like another SM North EDSA... hehe. A huge water feature would be awesome.
