—-UPDATE as of January 20—– : Instead of a 20 storey building, ADDU changed its plan to 12 storey building once it will be approved by the Society of Jesus in Rome. Original proposal is 20 storey but reduced to 12 floors for the main reason that they would want to use the extra funding for the improvement of the sports facility as well.
Here is the rendering of the proposed 20 storey Ateneo de Davao University Tower (Community Center)

According to Arch. Christopher Ong who presented the concept and overall design, the tower which will serve as a community center will house the student plaza (for student offices), faculty lounge, wellness gym, jog track, and a fitness center. It will have a 3 level convention hall that can accommodate upto 5000 people. Skybridges will connect the tower to Finster and Jubilee.
With a budget of around 1.2 billion pesos,the community tower will occupy a 6,000 sqm area. Once everything will be agreed upon by the proponents, construction will start in January 2012.
