Trump Tower Manila, also known as Trump Tower at Century City, is a residential building located in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. The Trump Tower Manila showroom opened in early 2012, although the company has said that unit reservations started in September 2011.[3] Groundbreaking of the building began in June 2012, with a scheduled opening in 2016.[4][5] Construction was nearly finished as of November 2016. The $150 million tower will stand 57 stories high upon completion.[6] The building will be located at the Century City mixed-use complex in Makati Poblacion and would be one of the tallest buildings in the Philippines.

Century City Development Corp., a unit of Century Properties Group, will be developing the residential skyscraper with the brand name and mark under license from American real estate mogul and President of the United States Donald Trump, Trump Marks Philippines LLC.[7]

Design and architecture[edit]

Trump Tower Manila's concept of the 'peeled' façade is articulated with internal balconies. The top and bottom corners peel away which accentuates the dynamic form of the tower. Its curtain wall facade maximizes spectacular panoramic views of the city. The facade's function is environmentally responsive, with light shelves and shading systems designed to react to the building's orientation in relation to sun's path.[8]

The tower was conceived by Jason Pomeroy and his team whilst a director of Broadway Malyan Asia, Pomeroy subsequently established Singapore-based sustainable design firm, Pomeroy Studio, who were appointed to complete the design.[9]
