Philippines-based real estate developer Century Properties recently announced a collaboration with globally renowned fashion designer Armani at its latest luxury project Century Spire.
Located in Makati’s Century City, the 60-storey tower is set to boast high-end office space in addition to luxury residential units, with amenities, namely the lobby, library, pool area and relaxation areas, designed by Giorgio Armani’s interior design outfit Armani/Casa.
“If the architect’s aim is to create remarkable spaces, then it is my aim to bring these to life through my interior-design aesthetic,” Armani said in a statement to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
Set for completion in 2018, the skyscraper has been designed by acclaimed architect Daniel Libeskind, the name behind the reconstruction of One World Trade Center, or Freedom Tower, in New York City. The American architect is also know for his work on the Jewish Museum Berlin and recognised regionally for masterminding Singapore’s Reflections at Keppel Bay.
At the launch of the Century Spire development earlier this year, the average residential unit price was set at PHP227,000 (USD5,245) per sqm.
Century Properties CEO Jose E B Antonio, who received the Real Estate Personality of the Year accolade at the South East Asia Property Awards 2012, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that the company headquarters will relocate to Century Spire upon completion, adding, “It will feel like a building in Milan.”
Century Properties is well know for its collaborations with big name brands, which to date have included property mogul Donald Trump, “starchitect” Philippe Starck, Versace Home and Forbes Media.
