This is at the former site (or behind the former site) of the art deco Jai Alai building, across Luneta.

^^ Yes, that is the lot. Very prime and will offer unimpeded views of Manila Bay as no high-rise will (hopefully) be built within Luneta/Rizal Park.

may render na ba, how many storeys ...? sana they'll make the most out of the location ... really unobstructed view of Rizal Park and Manila Bay ...

Based on the vicinity map , this will be located at the back of former Jai Alai building and not along Taft Avenue. Mayroon lang cyang maliit na access road from Taft.

No details at all yet. No renders. I hope they come out with the details and perspectives soon.

Oh, I didn't notice that, thanks for pointing it out.

maganda nga ito, i saw the property fenced and marked as DMCI property at talagang unobstructed view of Manila bay. Naalala ko lang na dati dito nakatayo ung Sky Room na isang art deco building na dati pa nga ngkaka-debate pa mula sa mga conservationist kasi nga heritage building ito.. pero ang sbai ng LGU ng manila eh may public purpose nga kasi gagawin city college of manila ata or justice hall to house the courts of manila na sobtrang cramped na kawawa naman ung may mga kaso.. tapos eto pala ngayon :(

Resort-inspired high-rise residential condo ba kamo? Luma na yan e. :eek:hno: I still lament the fact that this building (another condo development at that) will be built in the former grounds of the iconic Jai-Alai building. DMCI could have done away with that tag just for this once, and banked instead on the architecture and history of the lot's former tenant and make it its selling proposition. Just my two singkong butas.

It has been discussed in different threads before. Nobody coud stop them in demolishing that beautiful green and white building. At least, we were glad when we came to know that Luneta Hotel would not suffer the same fate that Jai-Alai Building did. Time to move on. I think this DMCI project is worth the watch. Render must be better than good.

Apparently, someone did not catch my drift. So OK, we are better off moving on. I am curious with the development and I will look forward to the rest.

Those facing Luneta im sure will be sold out fast. Even if it is quite a distance from Manila Bay, views are most likely never going to be blocked. But curiously, why did they name it Torre de Manila? Tuloy, akala ko same developer eto as torre lorenzo.. hehe..

Maganda yung location. I agree sold out agad yung mga units na nakaharap sa Rizal park, and hopefully iconic yung design kasi nga kitang kita sa Rizal park. Bakit kaya di nila ginamit yung name na Torre Luneta?:nuts: or Rizal Residences?:D

:2cents:

yeah, aside from the good manila bay view, the sprawling view of Luneta is more than enough! Magkano kaya indicative pricing nito? Plus points talaga ang "almost certain" no view blockage - ang problem lang sa location is traffic lagi sa area na ito.. Anyway, u have a nearby savemore just at the groundfloor and LRT station so convenience is a plus as well.
