Skycity is a proposed 80 story skyscraper for Mandaluyong City, Philippines. It is a joint venture between real estate developer E. Ganzon Inc. (EGI) and Sam Buena Realty Corporation.[1] Its estimated height is 335 metres (1,099 ft). If constructed, it will become the tallest building in the country. Skycity is planned as a mixed used skyscraper with a hotel, office space and residential space.

Construction was suspended due to a lawsuit filed by a homeowner's association from nearby upscale Greenhills East Village. As of September 14, 2005, the Philippine Court of Appeals promulgated a resolution allowing the developers to resume construction of the skyscraper.[1] As of 2008, it was noted that no construction work has proceeded on the excavation area, which is the only completed phase of the project. In 2010, the second division of the Philippine Supreme Court rejected the challenges of the Greenhills East Association, and the developer said that the project (now described as a 77 story building with 8 basements) would proceed.[2][3]
