MAKATI | One Central [50F+42F|res]

Just saw it today. The fence which encloses the former Shell Maya on HV de la Costa St. and Buendia now heralds a new development by Megaworld known as The Trumps.

Mods, please feel free to change the thread title with the details as soon as specs of the project are released.

For a long time I have been "tempted" to go for a Fort Boni place. Now I can lay aside any whims I may have about Fort Boni and forge onward.

Fort Boni guys, please don't misinterpret this post. Lest I be misconstrued, I am only saying here that I am not cut out for the Fort.

Hehe thanks @sugarboy.

Guys, I found this on the net and if you can see the tiny pic, I'll say that The Trumps despite its name is gonna be a good one. It even looks like an extension of the RCBC complex across Geronimo Street.



By the way, The Trumps is the building on the right.

in fairness. it looks like RCBC tower 3? hahaha., blends well with the place., and it looks a bit tall too.,

the trumps? who would want to live in a condo named "the trumps"?!? what does the trumps mean? hahaha., weird name. at least it doesnt have the word "place" "residence" etc.

anyways, meron nang development na "the trumps" sa ibang bansa., sa singapore.

Looks like Megaworld has its a** covered on this one. It applied the trademark/name with the Intellectual Property Office last January 2006. I stumbled upon the following link earlier when I was googling for "The Trumps". -->

Let me try this for you @-TC-



I am glad that it's not boxy. Actually, if you look closely, parang wavy yung facade...

Thanks @basti pero nahilo yata ako sa pic. And it only became wavy when you zoomed it. Hehe.

thank you for the efforts guys. ang sisipag niyo. pati IPO naresearch na. Trumps naman to, not Trump.

don't be deceived tho, baka di naman ganun ka glassy talaga as what it seems. sana man lang. it looks like Bellagio with curvy and smooth edges. but it complements well the nearby RCBC. And you are right Rich, this will look like RCBC annex. i wonder what the hump at the back is.

if what we see is what we get, then this will be the best Megaworld project to date architecture wise.

It's not curtain wall as you can see from the rendering, but at least there's lots of glass, parang like the Bellagios and the Parkview.

Is this an office building or a residential?

Edit: From searching the internet, it seems that it's a residential.

I was fooled by this one. I got excited when I saw the TRUMPS MAKATI title. I thought the Net Trump already decided to move in Makati instead of BGC. Like the render, but not the name. If the Net Trump will build a trump tower in BGC then TRUMPS Makati will sounds like a trying hard Tower. Just my opinion.
