- Project Information/Details: A topping out ceremony was held late last month for The Finance Centre, a 42-story, class A office tower in Manila, Philippines. Thornton Tomasetti, along with local engineering firm SY^2, is providing structural engineering services to Daiichi Properties, the building’s developer. Located within the city’s Bonifacio Global City financial district, the all-concrete tower designed by Gensler consists of an eight-story podium with retail and commercial space on the first two floors, five levels of below-grade parking and 31 floors of column-free office space with an 11.5-meter clear span between the building’s core and perimeter. It also incorporates a number of green spaces, such as a 1,700-square-meter plaza and a sky garden above the retail podium. Local firm AIDEA is the architect of record.
