CONSTRUCTION

The construction of The Infinity started in November 2007 and was completed in December 2011. There were  no major issues or hitches during the four-year construction period, aside from the usual minor complaints of delay from the unit owners who bought during the pre-selling stage of the project.

ISSUES

Before the completion of the residential skyscraper, the tallest skyscraper in Bonifacio Global City was the Pacific Plaza. However, Nuvoland claimed that The Infinity surpassed the height of the Pacific Plaza and there had been some discussions over the Internet whether The Infinity had really replaced the Pacific Plaza as The Tallest Building in the Bonifacio Global City.

Another issue is the construction of The Infinity right in front of the South of Market towers or the SoMA towers. It was said before the start of construction that the view of some bedrooms in SoMA, especially those that are facing the south, would be blocked because of The Infinity. However, the architects of The Infinity made a study and  made sure that The Infinity would be located in the middle of the two-tower SoMA structure.

The amenities are all located on the 11th floor and since the skyscraper has residential and office units, there would be separate entrances for those who are living there and for those who have their offices at The Infinity.
