Pacific Plaza Towers BGC: The Tallest Twin Towers in Taguig
One of the pioneering infrastructures in Bonifacio Global City, Pacific Plaza Towers BGC is considered the tallest twin towers in the city of Taguig. With an all-glass facade, this 51-storey building is one of the first skyscrapers around the area, rising up to 179 meters tall and became a legendary landmark that you can hardly miss. And if you did not know, Pacific Plaza Towers became the background for the iconic music video Taralets by Imago.
It is no secret that there is a sudden rise of residential condominiums in the Philippines, no matter where you go, especially in Metro Manila. Areas in Makati, BGC, and Manila, are some of the areas that have truly developed with rising numbers of condominiums, office buildings and business districts, not to mention the other provinces that also adapted the urban lifestyle of building skyscrapers and condominiums. These progressive cities have an abundance of the tallest buildings and the most magnificent skyscrapers. According to a study, the increasing number of condominiums coincide with the growing population of the country and it is said that the Millennial generation jump-started the demand for condos, thus reshaping the urban landscape of the Philippines.
THE RISE OF CONDOMINIUMS:
HOW IT CAME TO BE
Pacific Plaza Towers BGC is one those skyscrapers that leaves almost everyone in awe and it is also one of the first skyscrapers in Bonifacio Global City even before the city progressed into the state it is in right now.
This infrastructure was erected in 2001 and was, at that time, considered to be the tallest twin towers in the Philippines until 2009 when St. Francis Shangri-La Place was built in Ortigas Center. And because of the continuous construction of buildings in the Philippines, Pacific Plaza Towers BGC got a lower rank in the Philippines’ tallest buildings. But still, like mentioned before, they are still considered to be the tallest twin towers in Taguig.
