Architecture and design
Wong & Ouyang, as well as Casas Architects were the architectural firms behind the Grand Hyatt Manila. Ove Arup & Partners was responsible for the wind, structural, and seismic engineering of the building. Arup devised its damp outrigger system to make the building resistant to seismic shock and wind. Concrete outrigger walls were installed in the Grand Hyatt Manila's two mechanical floors.
In September 2008, Taguig City Mayor Freddie Tinga announced that Federal Land will be building a 66-storey skyscraper that would surpass the PBCom Tower in height which was then the tallest building in the country. The construction of the building then dubbed as the "Federal Land Tower" was scheduled to commence within 2009.
The project would be formally unveiled by Federal Land on March 2011 with the groundbreaking ceremony taking place on March 24, 2011 Initially it was projected to be completed in 2014. The building still under construction had a fire incident on August 2017 though no injuries were reported.
