  • Site of the tallest building in the Philippines, Century City is a 3.4-hectare another development project in our metropolis. Relatively small compare to other sprouting major developments such as the Aseana City, Eastwood City and Rockwell. What sets it apart from the others is the record breaking upward development it undertakes. Now holds the title of the tallest building in the country, Century City's 72-storey "The Gramercy Residences" is 20 floors taller than it's predecessor, PBcom Tower in Ayala Ave. Aside from that, most of the towers has some sort of ties to names of two world icons, Versace and Trump. Upon completion of the sprawling project, cluster of supertall brand skyscrapers would have erected, dramatically changing the entire skyline of Metro Manila and creating the most prestigious address in the Philippines yet. The other superstructures that completes Century City development are the following: Trump Tower, The Milano Residences, The Knightsbridge Residences and Centuria Medical Makati.
