CBRE pushes for ‘Supertall’ offices in PH
by Manila Standard Today | Friday | Sep. 19, 2014 at 09:00pm


AS DEMANDS for office space continue to swell, a property research company has encouraged development firms to follow the footsteps of other Asian countries and proceed with building “supertall” offices.

The limited availability of office spaces in the country’s established central business districts vis-à-vis with the forecasted six million square meters of demand for such spaces has prompted CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) Philippines to push for such type of development.

A good candidate for this Supertall office is the former EGI Skycity Tower, the Supreme Court already cleared all opposition to the height limit. Maybe a new group of developers will be bold enough to do it, and get rid of that ugly gaping hole in the middle of Edsa and Ortigas ave...

‘Supertall’ offices sprouting in Asia
by The Philippine Star | Friday | Updated October 10, 2014 | 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines - Development of tall office buildings in Asia or “supertalls” are rising at a rapid pace, according to a recent study by CBRE Global Research.

As of June this year, Asia makes up 55 percent of the total number of tall office buildings globally.

Synonymous to prestige and power, these towering buildings – with a height of over 300 meters – usually mark the evolution and rise of business hub into an upscale, successful district within the region.

Hopefully , someday when the developers realized it that their supertalls will be best fitted to be built Filinvest City, Alabang for the following reasons. The site is not in the path or beside Manila's international airport runway , its not in a reclamation land either and its one of the most well planned business district in the country which is not yet congested and could truly emphasize the presence of any supertall(s).

Hmmm...if all developers and the city governments would go for supertall buildings, what they need to do over the next decades was hopefully:

1. The government should stop wasting so much money for their lifestyle and should be more concerned about their development of their country, in order to boost their economy more rapidly, as much as they can.

2. If it works, whether it's a miracle or not, they need to find a way on building a brand new airport that is far away from the metro but not very very far FIRST. So the location that I and could also be among of you would recommend to be built should be in Clark, since it's a perfect place to have an airport there and it could be like the "aviation capital" of the country. So hopefully that they would be so serious about building a high-speed rail link and a super highway that can be easier to cruise and have much faster access than NLEX, and also find a railway expert, like JR from Japan and the MTR from HK, as well its suppliers for those trains.

3. If the new airport was built in Clark, complete with a high-speed train and super expressway, then the high chance for Metro Manila was that the height restrictions won't be below 300m or so. Hopefully this would replace and demolish the entire NAIA in 2-4 decades (except the NAIA T1, as I'm thinking that it should be converted into an open park and a historical and art museum of Ninoy Aquino, including the story of his assasination ).This means that our country could build supertall buildings, which means more office space and hopefully, more tenants.

4. But for local and foreign developers, building a supertall buildings means finding a genius solutions. This includes applying mass dampers, belt truss and anything that can be strong enough to survive any powerful disasters, especially heavy typhoons and threatening earthquakes. So the base itself should be as large as possible.

5. Developers of supertalls in the country should be more consider on their design, which should be remarkable , iconic, a true signature, and a renowned landmark. So they need to find great architects that they not only do designs that are beautiful or spectacular, but also do designs that are sustainable, environmentally friendly, spacious as much as possible.

Having a supertall here in the country can be pretty difficult to build, as the land is soft, painful traffic congestion, heavy floods, killer typhoons, or even powerful earthquakes are hitting in the metro. Then the space is getting a bit tight, due to the lowrise houses that were built near highrise buildings, and we don't have much money to pour it in, due to government issues and height restrictions near NAIA. It takes time and patience, just like what it did in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Dubai and Kuala Lumpur. But if our country would be more disciplined and be more recognized to the world, in terms of tourism and economical develepment, then we can have some supertall buildings, mostly in Makati, BGC, Ortigas and Q.C., as long as we have much space there to develop and rise.

Sugod lang Pilipinas. Sana lang wala nang corruption and WALA NA YANG BINAY DYNASTY NA YAN! :banana::banana::cheers1::cheers:

If North Makati goes full redevelopment, then It may host a 200 storey Twin Towers there with a 25-storey hotel, a 55 storey building, three 15 storey BPO buildings with and SM Mall together with one 61 storey and 64 storey hotels on top of the SM Mall..

Redeveloping Poblacion, Valenzuela and Olympia north of JP Rizal into a CBD? IMHO, it doesn't need to.

Let this community stay in its current state kaysa gawan pa ng bagong concrete jungle. For sure, matagal nang naninirahan ang mga nandiyan sa part ng Makati between City Hall and Circuit at kokontra sila diyan pag halimbawang may elite na magpapagawa diyan.

Even that, Makati needs more green spaces ala High Street and a promenade along the South Bank of Pasig River like Baywalk of Roxas Boulevard.

^^ That's where LGU or elite corporations should focus, kahit polluted pa din ang Pasig River. At least, for future-proofing in case na i-rehab ang Pasig River in a similar approach as Boracay and Manila Bay.
