FHM Nation, the most expensive parking building in the world can be found in Makati, and it costs a whopping P2.3 billion. True story!
Last Wednesday morning, August 20, the Senate Blue Ribbon committee conducted a hearing on the alleged overpricing of the 11-storey new Makati City Hall II Parking Building, with Mayor Junjun Binay on the defending panel. Press play on the video below to see the whole thing:
Here's the thing: Despite being lambasted by Senators Alan Peter Cayetano and Antonio Trillanes for close to four hours, Mayor Binay continued to dispute this allegation. And based on his answers, it really looks like he doesn't know squat about it. So who's to blame for this anomaly?
Join us as we take a closer look at this head-scratcher of a hearing...
THE ONE ABOUT THE BUILDING SPECS
Parking buildings in Makati cost P200 million on average to build. So tell us, Mayor Binay: What the hell is the additional P2 billion for?
Kahit na! P2 bilyon?! Ano kayo, Google!?
THE ONE ABOUT THE DOBLE PATONG
High-rise buildings in Makati have an average price of P40,000 per square meter. So can someone explain to us why the parking building in question falls at P70,000 per square meter? That's almost double the cost!
Aba, gawa ba sa ginto 'yang sahig niyo?
THE ONE ABOUT THE "GREEN BUILDING"
Binay reiterates that their parking building is more expensive than others because of several special features. Can you elaborate on that, mayor?
Pakibilang nga kung ilang puno ang nakikita ninyo...

THE ONE ABOUT THE COMMISSION ON AUDIT
To all COA employees, how come none of you noticed anything suspicious? It took the City of Makati six years to finish this damn thing!
Time to play the blame game!
