The Shangri-La at the Fort is an under construction luxury mixed-used development featuring a 5-star hotel and upscale condominiums, located at the Fort Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila, Philippines. The new hotel will complement the company’s four existing hotel properties in the Philippines and the Shangri-La Resort and Spa, Boracay, which opened last April 2009.[5][6]

At 250m tall, upon completion, it will become one of the tallest skyscrapers in the Philippines. As of May 2011, excavation works had been completed and substructure works were ongoing.

Location[edit]

The mixed-use hotel, residential and retail tower will be located along Fifth Avenue and 30th, within the new, fast-developing Bonifacio Global City business district. [6]

Design[edit]

Shangri-La has named US-based Handel Architects as design architect and Hirsch Bedner Associates will undertake the interior design for hotel guestrooms, hotel residences and the hotel public areas. [6]

The Hotel[edit]

Guestrooms will start at 48 square metres (516 square feet) for a standard room. The hotel will feature over 4,600 square metres (49,519 square feet) of meeting and banqueting facilities including a grand ballroom, junior ballroom, 11 function rooms, boardroom, business center, individual teleconferencing room and a 350-square-metre (1,148-square-foot) high-end outdoor event area.[3][6] Sir Robert Kuok, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts chairman, also announced during the groundbreaking ceremonies that the hotel shall house what will become Manila’s largest ballroom with a floor area of 1,800 square metres.[4]

The structural design is being performed by DeSimone Consulting Engineers. The design is being completed using state-of-the-art earthquake engineering design philosophy called Performance Based Design (PBD).
