This cluster of newly planned skyscrapers at Century City could soon be setting a new height record in Makati City, part of the Philippino capital, Manila with the Gramercy Residences rising to 68 storeys.

It's been designed by Jerde Partnership International who have previously and most notably worked on the Roponggi Hills in Tokyo.

They've dreamed up a main tower rising off a podium plus two shorter buildings. Contoured like a quarry with different rock stratas visible the base takes on a distinctly geological flavour. Featuring on this will be outside areas for residents to enjoy including a substantial pool, almost as if it has naturally collected in the location it is situated.

The main tower rises to 302 metres, an increase from a previously proposed 291 metres, and occupies a corner plot. This involves a staggered shape with two wings arranged perpendicular to each other. Above the first set back, the exterior is dominated by external balconies and a projecting frame that matches their arrangement and wraps around the tower.

The set backs are also exploited by the architect to turn them into a series of green spaces in the sky. Most importantly for the building is one accommodated in a triple height void in the near centre of it both vertically and horizontally called a Sky Park. This will contain not only an infinity pool and a lap pool but also a lagoon pool, hanging gardens and even waterfalls.

Preparation work on site is already underway with the massive hole the towers foundations will sit in, eventually to be 29.7 metres, reaching ever deeper. The Gramercy Residences are on target to be completed in 2012.
