Manila tower restarts after court decision

Manila tower restarts after court decision

Construction on a controversial tower block that ‘photobombed’ the National Matyr’s Monument in the Philippine capital Manila can restart after a Supreme Court ruling.

The 49-floor Torre de Manila condominium project became known as "Pambansang Photobomb” (the “national photobomb”) and saw construction halted in June 2015 for violating building regulations. 

The Supreme Court saw a close vote of nine to six in favour of the development by DCMI Homes.  DMCI is owned by David Consunji, a 95-year-old property magnate who is reportedly the sixth richest person in the Philippines with a net worth of USD3.6bn.

The company said it would immediately advise its customers and future residents on the updated construction timetable.
