SAPPHIRE TOWER
Developer: Robinsons Land Corporation









The Sapphire Tower is designed as a crystalline form, defined by the geometric shapes of the building's structure.

Sapphire Tower is designed to be a shimmering landmark on the city's skyline. The development will be anchored by a 1,000-foot tall mixed-use lower located on the southern end of the site. At the northern end, a 24-story office tower will be connected by a retail podium at the ground, as well as via a dramatic skybridge 24 stories up.

The signature tower incorporates office, residential, and hotel uses. The top three floors feature a spectacular Member's Only Club, accessed through the 67th floor. The Club features a cantilevered pool deck that hovers over 800 feet above the city below.

^^:banana:

I already assumed that this proposed project will be located along Sapphire Rd in Ortigas since there's still a lot of huge vacant lots available. On the rendering, i can see as well the Currency tower condo by Vista Land.

Sana lang talaga eto na ang maging final rendering. Super awesome!! Based on the description, it could be around 70 floors.
Well, kung mabago man rendering, sana supertall pa din.
Ang lawak pa ng mga lupa dyan sa Sapphire Rd. I just hope it will be a supertall. Feeling ko din na katabi to ng Centerpoint. That rendering makes really sense. Isang tower beside Centerpoint then mga 2 towers sa likuran since malawak pa lupa dun.
Haha. Ako super excited na.
Kahit papanu, nakikiliti na naman mga yag bols natin dahil proposal na 'to. :laugh:
Under proposal pa lang yung project. Sana mapush through
May nakuha na Contractor? Kung meron, EEI sana
Super agree!! Wala na ko maidadagdag pa. 😀
^^ My question is what is Robinsons Land Corp's track record in following renderings? Are there any examples of projects from them wherein they show a rendering then downgraded it?

That said, the source of this is from an architect's website, which specifically said "concept". They could be pitching this design to RLC but it remains to be seen if they will adapt this design, or if there are other firms that are submitting designs. If this was an ad, then we can be overly critical if they don't follow because they would be selling a project to people with a promise it will look like this. But at this point in time, the rendering can never be considered a finalized one, unless the RLC Execs are just as in love with this rendering as we are. ;)

One thing is for certain it seems RLC owns the land surrounding the Centerpoint building so there will be a building or two of theirs in that site someday. Whether its this one, something similar, or the usual black boxes consistent with other RLC "Cyber" buildings, we shall see.
Corporate Finance Plaza pa at Exchange Square
Anyway... :D (I'll add some other 200m+ projects and revise Icone's height next time)

Let's just pray na eto na final design ng project na to. If we'll gonna try to look at Handel's recent projects na nakapost sa website nila, lahat natuloy at nasunod design like The Westin hotel which is also under Robinsons Land.
