Tallest Buildings in the Philippines

Sure we don’t have something the likes of the Burj Khalifa in this part of the planet but we do have our share of skyscrapers, enough to make any human realize how puny he is. And how mighty he can be.

It’s no wonder these skyscrapers are associated with the biggest names in the construction industry. The biggest businesses and the biggest tenants.

For some time, there are many who would equate skyscrapers to power and wealth. The higher the structure the richer the country. Well, I don’t know about you, but if you ask me, wealth is defined as how much money one has or how liquid one is. As always, outward appearances can be deceiving. Look at what happened to the Titanic, said to be “unsinkable” or for that matter the Roman Empire.

But these structures are no doubt way up there, no question about that. So for those who fancy going on a “sway” trip waiting for the next big one, these Philippine skyscrapers will no doubt fit the bill.

Petron Megaplaza
Built near the 2nd of 2000, the Petron Megaplaza caught the eyes of everyone who was lucky enough to marvel upon what was the tallest building in the country back then. Not anymore.

Still, the building is a beauty in stilettos with its vertical length. Though come next year 2015 it may have to be taken down from this A-list.

A large protruding design towering Makati, you’d be lost gaping at this classy combination of steel and glaze. To top all that, you get space for relaxing in the rooftop complete with a pool and a possibly a bar to boot (can anybody confirm this cause no way I’ll be able to).
Just don’t get tipsy at the edges, I assure you falling is not an option.

Ever thought of the meaning of “GT” in this vertical wonder? As a clue, one has to get into the background of this marvel’s construction company, Federal Land.

The Gramercy Residences
Borrowing its name from a fenced-in private park in Manhattan right in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods of the city, The Gramercy definitely lives up to the hype.

Needless to say, essential to its success is the fact that it’s but a stone’s throw away from the country’s financial hub, Makati Central Business District. Added to this, the place is but a block away from loads of entertainment along Makati Avenue.
