michaelbanakarchitect - Megablock is a commercial office development located in the Northgate precinct of Filinvest City, Alabang, Philippines. The “Butterfly” form consists of 4 commercial office towers, 25 levels in height, with a GFA of 45,000m2 per tower.

Crone Partners designed the towers around a significant public parkland and piazza retail space that can be used as a performance space for seasonal events or festivals.

The office floor plates are designed to maximise workspace flexibility, with large, clear span floor plates with a NLA of 2,100m2. These can be broken up into strata offices or used as whole floors.

The development was designed for the BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) market where employees work a morning and graveyard shifts. The various outdoor landscape areas provide a pleasant outlook and place of respite where workers can connect and relax after a stressful day.

Megablock is a green building targeting a LEED Silver certification through the US Green Building Council.

Thanks to LhexiMont who provide the link of this project. :) :eek:kay:

Anyway, I presumed that the location of Megablock is bounded by Northgate Carpark and Filinvest One Building (marked with red).

Gaya ng sabi ko dati.
Common Northgate lot FAR is just 4 for office and 6 for residial kaya mababa talaga. While Northgate lot beside AZroad has FAR of 10 and 12 respectively.
As planned sa Filinvest City center/Spectrum yung matatas na building. Geographically, Spectrum District yung center :). Pero sana pag puno na lot ng FC yung parking lot in the middle of [email protected],b,c,d&e ay tayuan ng mataas na building pati parking lot sa cyberzone block.



Sa tingin ko sa parking lot ng Cyberzone block to. Pinakamataas to na itatayo so dapat dun sa gitna. Hindi naman pwede sa gilid bukod sa mababa na FAR, mahaharangan pa nito mga view ng building. It seems na may park dun sa tatayuan ng 4 towers so maganda rin kung doon nga sa middle/parking lot. May tatambayan na na park yung mga building na nakapalibot sa Megablock. May bagong gawang parking lot sa likod Northgate [email protected] ngayon. Northgate precinct ang address nito sabi sa www.michaelbanakarchitect.com.au. A precinct is a space enclosed by the walls or other boundaries of a particular place or building, or by an arbitrary and imaginary line drawn around it.

Nice analysis @ Muchosan ... I believe baka ito ngang central parking area ang exact location ng Megablock , since it is most appropriate there at may central plaza/park nga na incorporated sa project of four towers . As you said may bagong gawang open parking space sa vacant lots at the back at malawak din yun .
Kung dito nga ang location , it would be such a delightful sight that the four identical tallest buildings in Northgate is at the center of it all .

michaelbanakarchitect - During our Concept Master Plan Design Phase, we presented a multitude of Design Options to our friends at Filinvest Land Inc. including; Central Park, The Cross, The Spine, Pinwheel, Blades, Fingers, Butterfly, Wiggles, Cut Sandwich, The Great Wall and Rotunda. Though everyone was amused by the name “Cut Sandwich”, down deep, we new this wouldn’t fly. My favourite schemes were Fingers and Butterfly. In the end there was unanimous support for the “Butterfly” scheme.

Megablock is a commercial office development located in the Northgate precinct of Filinvest City, Alabang, Philippines. It targets a LEED Silver environmental rating, illustrating the collaborative Design Team’s commitment to Sustainable Design. The “Butterfly” arrangement of buildings, consists of 4 commercial office towers, 25 levels in height, with a total GFA of over 180,000m2. It was designed for our client Filinvest Land Inc., to cater for the BPO market which works both day and night/ “graveyard” shifts.

Nabasa ko na rin ang article na ito ..thanks for sharing it with the forumers. Sana matuloy talaga itong worthy project na ito na really meant for the concept of Filinvest City na nature/greens oriented business district in Metro Manila which they lived up with conviction so far. Sana mga ganitong quality projects ang ma-build sa Filinvest City.

Someone updated the map of Northgate in wikimapia and from there the 4 tower Megablock will also occupy the old middle parking space and the new parking space will be the lot in front of Plaza A...

Good to know that the project site is already fence , sana simultaneous ang paggawa sa 4 office buildings since its a megaproject of Filinvest . May it become so successful and will be replicated in Spectrum business district of FC. Sana once na matuloy ang Spectrum Center office towers block ay LEED certified din at ganito rin ang concept but with real highrises/skyscrapers ( 50 storeys above ) to make it standout .

Much projects happening in FC are in The Northgate Zone. I would rather have this built in the central core and have more developments happening in this area!
