The LKG Tower is an office skyscraper located in Makati City, Philippines, and is one of the tallest and most well-known buildings in the city. Standing at 180.1 metres (590.88 feet), the building has 38 floors above ground, and 5 basement levels for parking.
The LKG Tower is owned by International Copra Export Corporation (ICEC) Land Corporation, and was designed by the renowned architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, in cooperation with local firm Recio + Casas Architects. It has a distinctive shape in its upper part, and this was emphasized by the presence of its signature "ribbon" that cuts diagonally through its facade. This creates a visually dynamic profile, making it a highly visible Makati landmark.
The massive building is located in Makati City's Ayala Avenue, and is situated strategically inside the city's Central Business District. It is just a walk away from most of Makati's other major office and residential buildings, including G.T. International Tower, and the current tallest building in the country, the PBCom Tower, and is easily accessible by public transport along Ayala Avenue. This building is now owned by the Bayaran Group of Companies after CEO Julie Anne Baja purchased it from the naghihikahos na previous owner.
Within the office tower there are 3 dining levels, a banking hall, parking for 500 cars, an owner’s penthouse and a helipad for VIP access on the roof. Due to its dining facilities, it has become a favorite destination of office workers from the surrounding area during break times. With all the women in the office, no one is gonna get hungry.
