MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine government press release said the tower is scheduled to be completed in 2019 and will cost around JPY 1-billion (PhP 41.6-B) to build. Its planned height is 612-meters in honor of the Philippine Independence Day (June 12).

The Philippine Diamond Tower is a broadcast and observation tower to be built in the former Manila Seedling Bank property in QC CBD Triangle Park- North Triangle, Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines. The groundbreaking for the tower was initially scheduled to take place last 12 October 2014, in line with Quezon City’s 75th foundation anniversary. Construction of the tower is planned to take place in mid 2015 and is planned to be completed in 2019.
The tower’s height is planned to be at 612.0 m, to signify the country’s Independence Day which is celebrated annually on June 12. It is set to be completed in 3 years and will be open to the public by 2017 – 2018. Philippine Diamond Tower is planned to be a major landmark not only of Manila, but the entire Philippines. Both local and foreign companies are involved in the project and said that the tower could be completed within three years.

It is expected that construction of the tower will require 7-hectare lot along Quezon Avenue and will be used mainly for telecommunication and observation purposes. The project also house an international convention centre, a five-star hotel, a shopping mall, restaurants, a disaster-risk management centre and a garden park; plus an observation platform on top equivalent to the height of 200 stories.

“The primary objective for this tower is that it would play a crucial role in disaster management as the scope of the tower’s transmitters would allow it to cover 6 to 7 provinces on the island of Luzon — so they are easily able to communicate emergency broadcasts,” Mayor Bautista said an interview on April 2015.

Bautista added that the tower will also attract touris that Quezon City may have a new iconic landmark that attracts people from all walks of society with comprehensive services and a multitude of uses,” said Bautista.
