The Japanese government is considering investing in the construction of a landmark tower planned in the Philippines through a public-private investment fund, it has been learned.
Quote:
The project is the construction of the Philippine Diamond Tower, which Quezon City, Metro Manila, plans to build in order to improve the efficiency of radio wave management for terrestrial digital broadcasting.

The tower is scheduled to be completed in 2019, with expected total construction costs of over ¥100 billion (P41.4 billion). It is planned to be 612 meters high in honor of June 12, the country’s Independence Day. By constructing both an observation platform and commercial facilities in the tower, it is also expected to become a popular sightseeing spot.

From The Japan News:

Govt mulls funding Manila ‘Skytree’

Quote:
The government is considering investing in the construction of a landmark tower planned in the Philippines through a public-private investment fund, it has been learned.

The government aims to promote infrastructure export, which Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s administration has selected as one of its growth strategies, along with information and communications technology (ICT).

The project is the construction of the Philippine Diamond Tower, which Quezon City, Metro Manila, plans to build in order to improve the efficiency of radio wave management for terrestrial digital broadcasting.

QC treasurer seeks to stop Ombudsman

Quote:
QUEZON City Treasurer Edgar Villanueva on Tuesday filed a motion for reconsideration with the Office of the Ombudsman to prevent his dismissal from government service over the auction of the seven-hectare Manila Seedling Bank Foundation Inc.

In an interview, Villanueva said the Ombudsman has overlooked a “vital” piece of evidence that could clear him of the administrative case of grave abuse of authority.
Quote:
The Quezon City government, along with the Mitsubishi Electric Corp. and National Housing Authority, the lawful owner of the disputed land, planned to build the world’s tallest tower in the area to be called the Philippine Diamond Tower.

During the city’s 75th Diamond Jubilee foundation on Oct. 12, 2014, Quezon City, Mayor Herbert Bautista announced the tower’s construction in 2016.

Just like all other gov't projects here in PH, maniniwala lang ako na totoo to kapag naitayo na. Pag puro press release, wag munang aasa

February 17, 2016 article

Japan plans to fund Manila “Skytree’ which is set to become the world’s 2nd tallest tower

- Japan is planning to invest in the construction of Manila’s equivalent to Tokyo’s “Skytree”

- Once completed, it will become the country’s tallest tower and the world’s second tallest tower

- The project will cost around P41.6-B to build and is scheduled to be completed in 2019

MANILA, Philippines – The Japanese government is reportedly contemplating on funding Philippine Diamond Tower – Manila’s answer to Tokyo’s Skytree; currently the world’s tallest tower and the second tallest man-made structure in the world after Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.

But a recent report by The Japan News on February 15 disclosed that Tokyo’s Corporation for the Overseas Development of Japan’s ICT and Postal Services is considering investing in the ambitious project with local subsidiary as part of of its plan to establish a new entity together with the Japan Overseas Infrastructure Investment Corporation for Transport & Urban Development (JOIN).

Sasali pala ang China sa bidding.

From http://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0002750221

- According to sources close to the government, Quezon City has responded positively to the idea of granting the construction project to Japan. However, as China is also interested in exporting its broadcasting infrastructure, it is likely that bidding for the project will have some serious competitors taking part if China also joins.

If the bidding criteria will largely be based on price, baka manalo ang China. I hope they'll consider the Japanese experience in constructing and managing the Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree.

Kahit mas mahal ang japan, sa japan pa rin ako.

Di porket mura eh matibay na. Mura nga sira naman ng sira, mas malaki gastos sa maintenance

Not really. China has so many tall and complicated towers. The world's 2nd tallest skyscraper has just recently completed in Shanghai. Canton Tower is only 34m shorter than Tokyo Skytree. Other than that, China has so many towers that are at least 400m high. I'm not saying that we should go for China, but I am just reminding of China's engineering capabilities. Japan's advantage however, is its technology and how they do things in a smart way. Japan is also better in building earthquake/typhoon proof structures.

Despite of China's experience in building supertalls, we should still go for Japan. Simply because it's more 'safe'.

Well and then there is the political component as well. Not sure if it is wise to let China construct the premier communication tower if there are potential conflicts in the future. In my opinion the Philippines should do everything to strengthen the cooperation with Japan instead.
