Groundbreaking held for Armani/Casa and Studio Libeskind’s 60-storey Manila tower 

On 28 May, Century Properties Group will unveil its collaboration with Daniel Libeskind and Armani/Casa Interior Design for a 60-storey office and residential tower in Century City in the financial centre of Makati City, Philippines.  

Dubbed Century Spire, the building will have a semi-reflective glass curtain wall facade with balconies and terraces structured to reflect a rhythmic geometric pattern. The slim tower will be topped with a ‘crown’ with its shaft dividing into three and reaching different heights. At the base of the building the surrounding area will be developed into a landscaped public plaza.  

“I am delighted to be part of a project destined to reshape Manila’s skyline and to make a bold and optimistic statement about the future of the Philippines,” said Daniel Libeskind.  

“Mr. Daniel Libeskind advocates architecture that is expressive, communicative, out of the box, real and democratic. His remarkable design for Century Spire adds a powerful symbol of optimism and progress for our country, here in Modern Makati,” said Century Properties Managing Director Robbie Antonio, who also heads up the Century Spire project.

Century Spire is set to open in 2018. The project is 64% pre-sold.
