MANILA — An iconic tower paying tribute to Filipino soldiers will soon rise in Bonifacio Global City (BGC).

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) will be building the Icone Tower, which will be located at 11th Avenue corner 11th Drive of BGC in Taguig City.

The tower is envisioned to be an iconic edifice in the BGC, a former Philippine Army camp that has transformed into a progressive financial district after the BCDA sold the military land in 1995.

The BCDA signed a joint venture with Arup and Henning Larsen Architects for the detailed architecture and engineering design of the Icone Tower.

The Icone Tower is planned to be a 40-storey building, with areas dedicated to the Armed Forces of the Philippines-BCDA’s largest stakeholder-as well as premium office spaces and retail spaces.

The property will have a total of 7,275-square-meter space.

The BCDA is currently looking for development partners for the Icone Tower. The project is targeted to be completed by end-2021. (PNA)
