MANILA, Philippines – The magazine Metro Society has scored a scoop after Donald Trump’s three children, Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka, agreed to be on the cover of the magazine’s latest issue.

The Trump siblings were photographed with Robbie Antonio, the managing director of Century Properties Group Inc., which is behind the Trump Tower Manila.

The Philippines is one of the first countries in Asia to host a Trump project.

According to the magazine, Antonio got to know the Trump Organization while working on a project in New York. From there, talks “rapidly progressed” resulting in a licensing deal for the Trump brand name.

“Their selection of the Philippines – as one of the countries to do a project in – is indeed a privilege, especially since ours is one of the first Trump-branded developments in Asia in this decade,” Antonio told the magazine.

Trump Tower Manila will rise in Century City in Makati City. The units will be available in three interior design finishes, reflecting key areas of New York: Downtown/SoHo, Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue.

“Trump Tower Manila is a milestone for both companies. This fantastic building will be the city’s most bold and elegant architectural and design statement, and leave the Trump stamp on the Manila skyline,” Ivanka told the magazine.

Ivanka, a former fashion model, is the executive vice president of development and acquisitions.

Donald Jr. serves as the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, while Eric is also executive vice president of development and acquisitions.

“As a real estate company, we look at a tremendous number of deals – both domestically and internationally,” Eric said. “We saw the Philippines as a country for tremendous growth and opportunity.”
