MyShutterchitecture: The Columns

Today on MyShutterchitecture, we feature a residential/commercial skyscraper submitted by Marcoboi of A Dose of Marcoboi.

This is The Columns in Ayala Avenue, Makati. It is a mixed-use skyscraper with 30 storeys and 3 towers. The Tower 1 was completed back in 2006, Tower 2 in 2007 and Tower 3 in 2008. It has a lap pool, 2 elevators and even communal wine cellars. It is situated right in the middle of a business district right across the heavily-guarded RCBC Plaza.

I have also found a photo in my archives of The Columns so I’m posting it together with Marcoboi’s photo. Here it is.


1322 Golden Empire Tower

This is 1322 Golden Empire Tower, 203 meters tall and the tallest building in the City of Manila. So let’s do a little comparison. PBCom Tower, the Philippines’ tallest building has 52 floors while 1322 Golden Empire Tower has 55. However, PBCom is taller because it has a much taller spire making it 259meters tall. It even has more floor area than the PBCom (1322 Golden Empire Tower has 125,500 m2 while PBCom has 119,905 m2).

1322 Golden Empire Tower is the seventh tallest skyscraper in the Philippines and considered one of the most luxurious condominiums in Manila. It is located along Roxas Boulevard.

Note: Please don’t mind the photo angles. I took it while I was on the cab. 😀
