At least two new skyscraper projects are set to launch in Cebu, Philippines, SunStar reported in February. The first project, designed by Paris-based Vincent Callebaut Architectures, involves a 32-story, 115-m-tall “organic” residential tower being called The Rainbow Tree, in honor of the rainbow eucalyptus, a colorful tree common in the Philippines. The tower structure will be solid wood and adorned with colorful plants from nearby tropical forests. It will be located in the 50-ha Cebu Business Park (CBP). The second project, also in the CBP, has yet to be revealed but involves a reported partnership between Chicago architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Cebu Landmasters, Inc. An earlier filing said the project would be a mixed-use community with hotel, retail and office components. An official announcement is expected in May or June.
