Trump Tower Manila

International real estate tycoon Donald Trump has collaborated with Century Properties for the first Trump Tower in the Philippines.

Century Properties is licensing the Trump brand to build and sell the P6-billion ($150-million) Trump-branded residential tower in Makati called Trump Tower Manila.

The tower will feature a grand triple-height lobby, a fine dining restaurant on the ground floor, a library, a business centre and lounge and video room at the third level.

On the 29th and 30th floors residents can enjoy the project’s spa, fitness centre and yoga studio, as well as juice bar, sun deck and lap pool.

The units will range in size from approximately 57 sqm for a one bedroom unit to 425 sqm for a penthouse.

Century Properties managing director and Trump Tower Manila project head Robbie Antonio said, “Trump Tower Manila marks a new era in Philippine development.

The standards of a Trump project are unparalleled and we expect to deliver this high level of quality in Trump Tower Manila.

There is a stark difference between luxury and ultra-luxury – this project falls in the latter category. Once built, we hope that this will also be the most prominent residential condominium in the history of Philippine real estate.

This is a five-star NY property. Every inch of the tower will look and feel like a world-class development. Manila has not seen anything like this in a long time or ever.”

The Trump Tower Manila showroom is scheduled to open in early 2012 but Century Properties had already announced unit reservations this month.
