Manila (Roxas Boulevard) Skyline
from Harbour Square, Malate, Manila

Given its bayside appeals, Manila, specifically Roxas Boulevard’s version of a high rise skyline, does not compare to the skylines of business districts Makati and Ortigas. However, there are some upcoming major developments along the bay that may just change this bayside skyline dramatically.

Harbour Square is a new development in a place that was once (sometimes still) called Breakwater. Aside from spectacular views of Manila Bay, its regular sunset showcase and the vibrant Roxas Boulevard, Harbour Square has all those fancy cafeterias, fine dining restos, fast food chains, little bargain shops and everything mall-ish, except that it’s outside a mall and on a way smaller scale.
